OK, I work on a lot of different things... sometimes I get held up on projects, sometimes I get things done. Well, right now, I am doing both. My "getting it done" project is a little Halloween game homage to slasher films of the late 1970's and 1980's. Halloween, Friday the 13th... you know the stuff. Cheesy, random stuff happening, high body counts, don't take a shower....
I am trying to tighten this up, getting it ready for a Halloween release as a short pdf game... Psycho-Slashers!!! The Game!!!
Here are some (blurry) images from my first play test. I am using paper miniatures (hey, they are cheap, take almost no time to prep, and look the part).... with a mix of "real" terrain and some hand drawn "flat paper" terrain. This game really likes interior rooms and walls (for various reason, you'll have to read the rules to find out), but that takes a lot of time to get together. So, for the play tests at least, I am hand drawing paper building maps.
Here is the layout of Camp Iwannagohome in North Carolina....
Here is Freddy strolling casually towards a Pawn, mid game.
This went very well, encouraging me to finish the game. Fast, fun, a little campy, certainly bloody... I'd call this one a winner.
