Hello from your friends at Bully Pulpit Games!

Right now that means Steve Segedy, Jenn Martin, Jason Morningstar, and Brennen Reece. We remain a small company with a small niche in a small industry.

As you may have noticed, this is an exciting time for pretty much everyone on Earth! Seismic shifts are occurring in where and how we spend our time, energy, and money. The situation is changing daily and there’s no way to prepare for the next extremely interesting development. Here at BPG HQ we are doing our best to roll with the punches, and we wanted to reach out and let you know what’s up.

Fiasco, whose manufacturing was understandably delayed, is back on track and is currently traveling on a couple of ships bound for Europe and North America. After that it will be on its way to Kickstarter backers and retailers. This is good news! Perhaps even better news is that you’ll also soon be able to play virtually, on Roll20, with a complete set of custom backgrounds and art assets.

Our presence at conventions through the rest of the year is, of course, completely up in the air. We planned to have a booth at Origins again this year, but those plans have been canceled with the postponement of the show. We feel strongly that remote play is the best direction for everyone right now, and we’re working on more ways to support that.

Star Crossed has been nominated for an Origins Award, and we’re really excited! We have high hopes, but there is strong competition in the RPG category. The game is currently out of stock, but we have a new second printing coming very soon.

Our Patreon has been a modest success and will continue. Please join us! The income really helps us monthly, allowing Jason to continue developing small games and experiments – one of which might end up being the Next Big Thing.

Speaking of Next Big Things, at least in the short term we’re turning some of our design attention to synchronous/distributed play. This may mean revised versions of well-loved games like The Skeletons or completely new designs. Our most recent game release on Patreon leans in this direction- Find/Fix/Finish is an online game about drone warfare on an alien world!

So work continues, and we continue to make fun new things we love, and love to share. We know these are challenging times for everyone and we’re endlessly grateful for your support. If you ever have questions for us or if there’s something we can do to make your days a little brighter, please let us know!

Thanks,
The BPG team
