For my first order of business as a full-time game designer now, I decided to tackle something that’s been bothering me for some time now. Part-Time Gods has received so many great reviews and comments and love from the fans, but everyone has said the same thing… editing could have been tighter. I took a little bit of time and skimmed the book to find, to my horror, it was riddled with misspelling and mysterious dashes that made no sense. So, I sat down, cracked my knuckles, put coffee on the burner and spent a lot of time going through the InDesign files to clean up the grammar, phrasing clarity, and spelling.
I didn’t stop there, however. I’ve been listening to feedback from the fans I’ve collected over time and took this opportunity to put a few changes into the game. Altering the Blast Manifestation and adding another way to Boost are just a couple examples of these changes. It’s the same awesome Part-Time Gods, but this revised version makes it that much stronger of a game.
What does this mean for you? It means you should have received a notification of a new version of the PDF if you’ve purchased the game from either the 3EG Online Store or DriveThruRPG. The awesome fans that helped out with the Kickstarter will get a new link to get the new copy. 🙂 This also means physical copies purchased from this point on will be cleaner as well. There may be a few other copies still floating around there, but it’s cool since the purchase of either will still net you the updated PDF, since we’re a member of the Bits-and-Mortar program.
This is the just the start of 2013, people! We have a ton of other great projects coming out, so be sure to keep up with us.
Until next time.
