Limey Yank Games
Three more weeks and we're off to Consimworld Expo. I'm taking Toulon there in the hope of finding people interested in trying the game. Playtesting is being conducted both face-to-face and via Cyberboard so I can guarantee that it is PBeM compatible.
Even if Toulon doesn't take your fancy, hopefully you'll pop over and say hello.
DUE TO BEING AT CONSIMWORLD EXPO AT THE START OF NEXT MONTH, THERE IS A CHANCE THAT THE SITE MAY BEUPDATED A LITTLE LATER THAN USUAL IN JUNE.
We're still hoping to add more sponsors in 2013 so if you're able to put in a good word with any publishers and suggest to them they may want to get in touch that would be greatly appreciated. The past ten years has certainly seen a massive swing in publisher attitudes to these tools; not only are most of them now approving the creation of gameboxes and/or mods, a lot are actively supporting them through actions such as their support of sites like ours and a significant number actually use these tools to help develop and playtest their products.
As a special thank you to each of our sponsors we're featuring one each month (all the way into 2014) here on the front page by showing some of the games for which, with their blessing, we're providing e-gaming support. This month it is one of our long-time supporters, Legion Wargames:
I know Randy at Legion Wargames would love to see additional PBEM aids for his games so, if your interested in helping out, contact him via the Legion Wargames Website and I'm sure he'll help out with imag files.
Toulon still needs a little under 100 pre-orders. I'd love to see this game published I know in the 220th anniversary of the battle. Can you help?
Toulon, 1793 - Limey Yank Games' first game design - is now available for pre-order here:
Your pre-orders support will be massively appreciated.
And just this month, to celebrate now needing less than 100 pre-orders, we're putting the names of everyone that has pre-ordered (old and new) into a draw. The winner will have the opportunity to provide a photo to be converted into a Vanity Counter to feature in the published game - just like this one for Luc Olivier (playtester):
We're grateful that a number of you have responded to our request to sign-up for user accounts and to get in there and rate gameboxes/mods to provide us with enough ratings for it to make sense to introduce a ratings chart - but we need more PLEASE.
Unfortunately, getting a new User Account isn't (currently) as easy as it was last year as we've disabled (temporarily) the ability to set your own account up while we sort a technical issue that was seeing up to 70 bogus applications a day reaching us. in the meant time Please use the Contact LYG facility at the base of this, and every, page to drop us a note if you'd like setting up.
That's it from me other than to thank visitors, sponsors and contributors.
