The Analog Gamer: A few of his favorite things…
Cryptic’s chief creative officer Jack Emmert has shared his favorite new games from Gen Con in a new Dev Blog on the official website for Champions Online. As an avid gamer, Emmert describes Gen Con as his “birthday and Christmas all wrapped up into one.”
Emmert found several analog or old school pen and paper and or miniature games; some new and some reinventions of old favorites. He snagged several minis games including Warmachine Legends, Monsterpocalypse and Pulp City. He also found the Jungle Temple from The Miniature Building Authority, a company specialized in producing miniature buildings and terrain for games. He also picked up a few RPGs including White Wolf’s update of its original World of Darkness Hunters source book, Hunter: The Vigil. He also grabbed Witch Hunter: The Invisible World and the latest version of the Wild Cards RPG.
If you can’t get to Gen Con yourself, it’s nice to get an idea of what new products to look for. Get a glimpse of Emmert’s picks and the methods to his madness in Jack’s Gen Con Holiday dev blog.
