We are proud to announce that Arcana Agency: The Thief of Memories is now an active project on Kickstarter:

Click here for the project!

Click the image for the playable demo!



Those of you following our games in general know what we mean by "gamebook." This one is different because we are going in a new direction: whereas normally we've taken classic gamebook series and made electronic apps, we're now making a new game in actual hardbound paper. This one is all our own creation and we're eager to see it come into existence.

In Arcana Agency: The Thief of Memories, you play a team of private investigators in 1930's New York City out to solve paranormal mysteries--and, if at all possible, stay sane and alive. Paul Gresty wrote the magic words and a team of artists (familiar to those who've played our apps) made full-color illustrations:





. . . And it's hopefully going to be printed in full-color hardback when the project concludes. Hopefully. If you've never heard of Kickstarter, the idea is that we ask you for funding, and we send you the product (and various other rewards as applicable) if we get enough funding to create said product. If we don't get enough funding pledged, then you don't pay anything, and we sit around twiddling our thumbs.

If you need evidence the contents are any good, you can click through the top banner to a free "demo" of the game. The file is a prequel and is completely self-contained, but also can link up with The Thief of Memories if and when the latter is published. Download it, play it, admire the art, and spread it across the internet.

Further information is also on Facebook. If you like what you see, then please think of tossing a few dollars our way to order the book and any other Megara goodies that interest you: for instance, The Way of the Tiger T-shirts are up for grabs on Kickstarter!

We really, really want this project to succeed, and we think a lot of people would enjoy playing in our little world. Thanks for lending us your ear!

By the time you read this, Arcana Agency: The Thief of Memories will be almost two weeks from its deadline, and approaching 50% of our goal! Response so far has been terrific.

Most recently, we got a little nod from Ryan North, author of Dinosaur Comics and Adventure Time comics, during his Kickstarter run with To Be Or Not To Be: That Is The Adventure.

We've partnered with fellow gamebook Maelorum (successfully funded) and Turn to 400 - The Fighting Fantasy documentary film (in its last hours).

Gamebook authors Dave Morris, Stuart Lloyd, Jonathan Green, and Herbie Brennan have all weighed in on our project.

We got a review on a new site called Table Tested. And though we think the book stands on its own merits, the Campaign Master blog even reviewed the project as a gaming aide for roleplaying in general.

We still have a ways to go, and for that we need your help. If you like the pretty graphics I've posted, and think a literate bit of gaming might be your thing, then please take a look at Arcana Agency:

. . . And/or try out our fully-playable game sample:

. . . And/or tell your gaming friends. Thanks once more for listening!

Good day, everyone. Arcana Agency: The Thief of Memories has surpassed 50% (and is now at 60%) with one week left in our project. We've seen backers coming from all over (including here) who are interested in the sort of classic gaming experience that RPG gamebooks represent. If a printed solo adventure you can hold in your hands sounds good to you, or you just want a download with pictures you can swipe for free (download link and alternative), then please take a look now:

We're almost done, and we're hoping to have a few more nice surprises before we get there, so please come on by. Thank you for reading!

Yes, Arcana Agency: The Thief of Memories has succeeded on Kickstarter! Many thanks to all who checked out the project, played the prequel/demo, and pledged: we now have enough funds to print the whole book WITH the demo included as an extra "case 0"!

We're exhausted now, but of course there's more work to do. Look for Arcana Agency to go on sale to the rest of the world near February, 2013. Thanks again!
