In February, I started working on the Chickenfox Game! I’ve been wanting to make a game for a while, and after a weekend with friends in a snowy cabin, the concept started pulling together.
It’s currently in an playable alpha (not yet beta) while I expose it to playtesting and refine the rulebook and wording on the cards.
Here’s the current introduction:
Chickenfox racing clubs from around the island are gathered to compete against each other in the ultimate Chickenfox Derby race.
Chickenfox Derby racing is an intense running sport with high stakes and big rewards. The racers are running as fast as they can, and you are their pace-keeper. Your job is to tell them when to turn so that they can stay on the road as much as possible. But Chickenfoxes aren’t afraid to play dirty. They steal points, force each other off the road, and sabotage whenever they can get away with it.
Each running club has three racers and a shared pool of backup racers that can tag in to help maximize their scores. The club that covers the most ground at the end of the meetup wins!
I’ve created a little poll to see what you guys are interested in! It should take about… 30 seconds I guess. It’s 2 questions and a fill-in-what-you-want. It’s anonymous and does not require you to log in to anything. Thanks!
(if the poll doesn’t load, it’s located here)
Well, I did the thing! Chickenfox Studios is now on Patreon!
Patreon is a website that helps fans support creators with monthly donations. In return, I’ll provide extra content and early access to my patrons.
My goal is to create more Chickenfoxes, more consistently.
Come find us at booth 306 if you’re going! Play the game, check out the book, get a sticker, and meet some neat folks ( @kyleehenke and @kingcharon will be there with us… ! And the lovely Carrie from Juniper will be at table 601! I’m stoked.)
Come let me take pictures of you with the Chickenfox, which I will later post on this very website!
(I’ll be trying again to use my Twitter to make it easier to find me, if you’re so inclined)
I wish I could say it’s the anniversary of constant updates, but that is unfortunately not the case.
Chickenfox Studios has embarked on its first foray into print design with Valorous Games’ Valor tabletop RPG… and the PDF launch is Friday, April 3rd at Seattle’s SakuraCon! It’s what has been consuming my time lately, but I’m very very happy with how it’s turning out and am looking forward to the hardcover print that will be released soon.
That said, I am aiming to make this truly the year that the Chickenfox takes off, with more updates and projects! I know I say that a lot, but life has a way of throwing curveballs.
If you are going to SakuraCon, follow the ChickenfoxStudios twitter to hunt me down and get a sticker! I’ll be mostly in the Gaming room helping to run Valor demos, but I’ll be around all three days. First convention! Whee!
This week has been a bit crazy: here’s a whirlwind Chickenfox!
Wrapping up the semester, so no new Chickenfoxes this week while I focus on final projects, etc.
There’s one computer hooked up to our scanner and my husband really really needs it right now…
Yay! Stickers are now in the Chickenfox Store!
Just use the paypal scrolldown to choose a pack of 3 or 6. Shipping is included, so get them while they’re available!
Even if I run out, I’ll have more made, so you’ll get yours eventually :)
Have been consumed by schoolwork. Will return on Saturday.
Stay tuned for the 2012 Chickenfox Olympics!
Going to have a lot of things on my plate soon, so to improve update quality and sanity levels, Chickenfox Studios will be updating four times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
Thank you everyone for coming along on this strange ride with me! Stay tuned for lots of exciting new things coming soon!
