Decision overload

There is a fundamental problem in the modern world, and the game world that has a name: Decision Overload. It's particularly obvious during the holiday season when people start looking for presents. You go to a store and you look at your options. You want to buy a present but there's fifty options with so many differences. Your brain can't process all the options so you end up making your decision based on incomplete information, or just not making a decision at all. 

In game terms decision overload can occur in different parts of the game.

HGB 2017 Kickstarter Preview: NuCoal Chasseur Model & Launch Date Set!

Today we preview the new Chasseur 3d model for the NuCoal faction. Checkout the 3d model images below of NuCoal's Trooper Gear with walking and hover movement modes. The Chasseur also has ball and socket connections between the torso and other parts, plus 2 part arms/shoulders that the lower arm can be rotated for the most poseability possible. It will be a plastic miniature release as part of Core NuCoal forces in the upcoming Heavy Gear Blitz Kickstarter #2.

Prioritizing rules issues

There's a list that I keep on my desk. It's not one piece of paper but a stack of post-it notes that I'm constantly adding to. It's become two piles because now I'm working on development of two games, Heavy Gear Blitz and Jovian Wars. The purpose of these list is to ensure that passing comments by players on the forums and messages to me do not get forgotten along with my own epiphanies and thoughts. There are rules comments and then there are rules observations. Questions about how the rules work and what their purpose is and that's where the concept of priority comes in.
