Hi everyone! I know I'm not around too much / not super involved in anything other than Arena, but I wanted to share with you guys the game I've been working on these last two years!
Four of my friends and I formed a small game design partnership here in California, Lixivium Games. After years of work, we are launching our first game, Laboratory Mayhem!
We're operating on basically no money, so consider this a preview product, with about 250 'placeholder' card illustrations drawn by one of the partners. But card art aside, the game is quite polished, and beyond that it is completely playable. The areas we spent the most time on are the design of the game and then testing it fairly extensively.
Based on local reception we may or may not take Lab Mayhem to the next level with a Kickstarter in order to fully fund artwork and a more legit distribution method, and maybe also pay off some of our debts.
In the meantime, our cards are available for sale on The Game Crafter, a print-on-demand games website.
If you're at all curious about the hundreds of hours that went into the game, please visit our website
. Follow us on Twitter
and like us on Facebook
. If you're really enthusiastic, you can buy our cards
and start a playgroup in your area. Any support we receive now will mean a lot to us as we consider whether or not to pursue this project to a more polished stage.
We've also heard that our favorite local game store, Games of Berkeley, might consider carrying our game if they hear from enough folks that there's some demand for it. Write to them on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/BerkeleyGames
) or Twitter (https://twitter.com/GamesofBerkeley
) and let them know that you'd like to see Laboratory Mayhem on their shelves!
Here's a pic of our product (and promo cards) on display at our launch party:
Thanks for reading, and I'll be available to answer any questions you guys have!
