Getting Beta ready

Within the next month we'll have the Beta rules ready for the next edition of Heavy Gear. We're pretty excited around the pod since this means a brand new start and a great opportunity for new players to join in playing Heavy Gear on the tabletop. 

The hardest thing about talking to new players is communicating what the game is, how it plays, and what it feels like to experience it.

 

From Alpha to Beta

There’s a lot of things that I thought I would be doing when I was a kid but writing and editing rules for a major game was not one of them. I thought I would do sculpting, casting maybe if I was lucky. Little did I know that learning to read tabletop game rules when I was twelve was one of the most relevant activities I could do for my future career.
 
This development blog has been quiet, too quiet. That is about to change. As of last Tuesday I have passed off the document for layout so that it will be ready in both PDF and printed forms for Gencon in August. I’ll be working on a series of videos to kick start players into the new rules allowing everyone to get caught up. The die hard survivors of the Alpha forum discussions can all give themselves a well deserved pat on the back, their comments and responses have helped to shape and define the rules to where they are today.
