Deadlands: Thunder Moon Rising – Now Rising on the Charts!
The second Deadlands novel, this one from author Jeffrey J. Mariotte, hit stores today and is already shaking the charts with its supernatural, western thunder, hitting number one for ‘science-fiction westerns’ and top ten for other sub-genre westerns.
And the reviews are already coming in!
“In the end, Deadlands: Thunder Moon Rising is a great book that can not only be enjoyed by tabletop gamers but also fans of steampunk, science-fiction and history. The author does an immaculate job of creating a world that fans of Deadlands can truly explore and enjoy.” – Amanda Dyar of BioGamer Girl
Kickstarter Campaign for Power Scourge Update
Then, we got pretty good confirmation we were right on the potential when we launched at Baltimore Comic-Con. The response was overwhelmingly positive. We left the con feeling there was no stopping us now!
Unfortunately, life had other plans. While Visionary has grown we are still a relatively small company, and a number of unforeseen circumstances with some key folks on our campaign team just piled up fast and furious, undermining a lot of our plans to promote, engage and build the campaign the way we intended. As a result, the necessary pieces of making this successful just did not happen.
Now, we could just try to push through, and try to hit the minimum goal, but that was not our intent, and we don’t want to ‘settle.’ We want all those great stories from all of our awesome creators and we want to have to go looking for more from top writers and artists to meet the demand.
As a result, we are going to suspend the campaign for now. By Kickstarter policy, that will mean canceling the funding and doing a full relaunch when we’re ready, once we’ve regrouped, replaced some key strategists and plans, and have a much more solid ground under our feet. We will also have more promotional and preview material in time for the relaunch, and once we come back, we will make it happen!
So, we certainly hope all of you will come back on board when we do relaunch. We will have promotional resources to help push the campaign from your end, and a more fully mapped out strategy and overview for the book to make it easier to jump in. If you decide to pass, or can’t, we understand and deeply apologize. Know, we seriously respect our fans and it is never our intent for something to not work out, but there are times those best-laid plans…
Thanks for all your support in all we do.
