The game Dr. Pergias’ Race Across the Continent has made it to the finals in The Game Crafter’s Steampunk Design Challenge!
Ben Haskett, the judge, had some nice comments about the game:
Absolutely stellar presentation throughout. Seems like a very simple roll-and-move game at first glance, but reading the rules shows that it’s really more of a resource management game in which players cash in resources for spaces on the board. I love that all of the information is displayed right there on the mat. Great catch-up mechanic with the check points, interesting incentives to stop on certain spaces when it seems like a player could possibly go farther. Looks like a finished product. Once I knew how to play, I was able to point at a picture of the game and explain it to another person in a few sentences. Simple, but not simplistic. Great title!
Thanks Ben for the kind words! Fingers crossed for the finals! Look up the competition at The Game Crafter’s news post.
