As you've previously read, I'm making a new game with my lovely wife Kit Daven and a good friend, Sabrina Scalarini. It's called Honey Bomb and is developing into something quite amazing! To the updates then...
Our original plan for Honey Bomb was to have a working tester pack by, well, about now. Unfortunately, the artwork is taking a little longer than I had hoped. I'm only about a third of the way through (with plans to complete two more images today). So, by all accounts, I think we'll be ready with tester packs by about the beginning of November. Wanna see what the cards are gonna look like?
The first of our Drone Bee cards, the drunken, carousing bee!
As you may already know, the concept bee-hind the game is based on actual bee bee-haviour, namely the Drones get kicked out of the hive by the Workers when the winter hits! In Honey Bomb, each player picks a side to see just who gets to dominate the hive for the season; The Party-It-Up Drones -or- The Hard Working and Industrious Workers!
Another Drone Bee card; The Fat Drone! This one has eaten soooo much honey, that he's all abdomen! We're thinking of updating the image with a bib.
As I progress through the artwork, I'll have more updates for you. So far, I've completed three drone cards, the insecticide card and a flower card. The other flowers are ready to paint, so is the bear card and I have designs ready for all the worker bees. It's really just a matter of me putting my butt in a chair, picking up my airbrush and getting to it.
That is where we're at for now. Oh, did I tell you, my parents came by yesterday and tried out Honey Bomb? They really liked it! And I'm pretty sure they weren't just paying me lip service either. Looks like Honey Bomb is fun after all :) That is my biggest worry, that people won't enjoy it. Worry averted! We'll get a real understanding of its enjoyability (sp?) when we have our tester packs in hand!
My parents going head to head! In this pic, Dad was getting his butt kicked, but he pulled out of that nosedive to win by two tiles!
