My Father's Work

A Victorian mad scientist game that's not going to be available through distribution, meaning if you want the cheaper price, the Kickstarter is the way to do it! This is a 2-4 player game as competing mad scientists complete experiments based on a page from their fathers journal. You'll need to aid the town, upgrade the estate, and complete their fathers work in an app driven game. And if you're worried about playing the same game twice, Renegade Games have crunched the numbers - you've got only a 1 in 13,808,372,000,000 chance of doing so!

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $99 (about £72)

Dice Theme Park

You know and love Dice Hospital, well now comes Dice Theme Park! The dice act as your visitor in the follow up to the original, where you're going to be building your own theme park, competing for visitors, attractions, and mascots, and maximising the enjoyment of the attendees. Including a new dice cascading mechanic, you'll pop down the dice activated and move them to an adjacent tile that you activate and move again...they call it "combo-tastic!"

King's Trial

You may have seen the trailer for this game ahead of time at our Virtual Spring Showcase! A dragon has appeared in the Kingdom, cutting off the King from being able to access his favourite foods, and he's offering the seat on the throne in exchange for convincing the dragon to leave. It's a tile laying game for the family, and a first game for Laughing Hyena Games.
