Redmond, WA – March 30, 2015. After an extensive Kickstarter preview period, during which Calliope Games accepted feedback from dozens of Kickstarter and tabletop gaming enthusiasts, the Titan Series is ready to launch.
The Titan Series is a line of casual, family-friendly tabletop games by some of the world’s best game designers including Richard Garfield, Jordan Weisman, and James Ernest. Joining the Titans as a stretch goal designer is Peggy Brown, designer of Buzzword, Backseat Drawing, and Q•bitz. Additional designers from across the globe will be announced as Kickstarter stretch goals are met.
“The games one describes as ‘gateway’ games are probably my favorite area of gaming.” says Titan designer Richard Garfield. “When people say ‘gateway’ and ‘filler’ games, oftentimes those terms don’t carry the depth of the love I have for that category and I think it underestimates their potential.”
“I’m extremely grateful to the community for providing their thoughts.” says Ray Wehrs, president of Calliope games. “We were able to make the Titan Series a better project because of their feedback.
We want this project and these games to benefit the hobby as a whole, and there’s no better way to ensure that than by engaging gamers. Backers will be an integral part of the development process. From honing rules sets, to choosing themes and artwork and voting on game content and titles, they’ll be able to help shape the series every step of the way.”
The Titan Series will launch on Tuesday, March 31st, at 7:00 PM PST/10:00 PM EST.
