Journey To The Overland is a completely solo game played on a numbered hex map that allows you to create a character and travel and adventure throughout the world of The Overland in search of Five Weapons of Power.

HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS:
Every project creator sets their project’s funding goal and deadline. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers’ credit cards are charged when time expires. If the project falls short, no one is charged. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing so no one who pledges their support now will be charged unless we make enough to fun the completed project at the end of the funding period!
We are asking for your support to make this game a reality. I know there is not any game like this on the market. Nor will there be. It simply is not the type of game publishing companies will fund. With today’s trend toward multiplayer and cooperative games a solo game is simply too big a risk for a game publishing company to put their money behind. That is why we are asking for your support and your funding to back our own funds that we have already poured into this project and continue to do so even during the funding period which our backers will see as we release new art and miniature sculpts as the campaign runs.
To give us your support visit our Kickstarter page now. Oh yeah and take a look at the cool video while you are there!
Thank you and God Bless!
