My good friend Cecil Porter is Kickstarting a brand new game in 2020 featuring all his original artwork. He's developed an entire world that he's super excited to release into the realm of magical realism. He wrote the story, developed the gameplay and painted all of the characters in oil. I've been working with him to develop the logo and all of the card designs. More to come on this project, get on the mailing list for updates here.
