Let the Games Begin!

"For The King"  Kickstarter Campaign Begins

Our son, Gord, and his friends Colby Young, David Lam, and Sean Hoyle [The Dev Team] formed IronOak Games. Their first game will be "For The King" and they need money to pay for development. We are shamelessly promoting their rather ambitious Kickstarter campaign at: Kickstarter - "For The King"

I am buying a village "Faire" with a princess who allows you to win valuable prizes in the midway games. I am really looking forward to helping create the concepts. I have a "vision" of how my Medieval Midway will be....full of things like "Whack-a-Mole" or "Shoot the Ducks"!

The Professor is buying a university and a professor-sage character who gives players advice on how to win the game. Not such a leap from reality:)

One does not have to purchase any specific item in the game. You can just back the game with any contribution. $5.00 will do! It all adds up and keeps the dream alive.

It should be noted that none of the money raised through Kickstarter goes to the team. It is all for the development of the game. These kids have given up their "real" jobs and are not taking salaries until the game is up and running. If the game is not funded by their Kickstarter venture, all contributions are returned. I am not a gamer by any stretch of the imagination, one doesn't have to play the game - just supporting the cause, which, at this point might be: Keeping the kids out of the basement!
