Rogue Games Offers :16 … Sort Of

Rogue Games has a new game out called :16. You try to wield your celebrity power, gaining status and spinning rumors about your opponents.

Only it’s not out. Exactly.

:16 is a card game that Rogue Games believes in, but we are unsure what the reaction to it will be. What we have decided to do is offer a free prototype of the game. This game has been tested and is ready for play. What we hope you do is play it and let us know what you think.

I don’t know how they can “believe in the game” and consider it “tested and ready for play” but still think it needs Beta testing.

    Hello. Maybe I can clear up the confusion.

    We believe int he game, but we are not sure if they game will be liked by a wider audience. Card games are tricky and what a publisher might like, players might hate. In addition we are a small company, and the printing of a card game, which is risky in and of itself, is even riskier if you are a small company.

    So what we have decided to do is put the prototype out and see what people think. A prototype for a card game is a complete playable game without the art and and graphic design. It is low tech, and that is due to the nature of a prototype.

    Before starting Rogue Games, I was a freelance game designer of card games. When shopping a card game to publishers you had to have a ready prototype. This prototype, minus the art, should be ready to go into production. For ;16 this is what we have done. It is a complete game. You can play as is, without the use of art.

    In short, we believe in the game, as a game, but as a game that we will invest our capital in, we are not sure.

    If you have any questions, please let me know.
