We are game designers that made a cross between a video game and a board game, ask us anything!
UPDATE: Sumer has reached its funding goal! The Kickstarter ends at 11 AM EST: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/studiowumpus/sumer-a-game-of-divine-strategy/
We are Studio Wumpus, four indie game designers with master's degrees from NYU.
For the past 16 months we have been working full time on Sumer, a board game-inspired strategy video game. We started out with the idea to explore the space between digital and tabletop, and ended up making this completely new kind of game. Sumer has the action and fast pace of video games but the elegant strategy and feel of modern board games.
Sumer will come out on Steam Early Access this summer, and if our Kickstarter funds successfully we'll take on the challenge of adding online multiplayer.
We’ll all be answering questions at different points tonight:

Thanks for great questions everyone! It's getting late (especially in Iceland) so we'll probably call it a night. But we'll continue answering any questions we receive tomorrow.
