The Kickstarter for Time Cellist, a game designed by Wheel Tree founders Todd Nicholas and Megan Pedersen, has just gone live!
We’re raising funds to create a really cool finished product and the money will be mostly used to pay our collaborators on the game book.
Kyle Bice is a Chicago based freelance artist, specializing in illustration and fine art. A 2002 graduate of the American Academy of Art with a BFA in painting, Kyle has done artwork for Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics and recently designed a series of original label artwork for New Holland Brewing. He is the lead artist for The Monster Weekly, a blog that promotes childhood literacy, and is the author and illustrator of A Book of Dwarves, which he self-published via a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2012. Kyle will be creating original artwork for Time Cellist which includes a full color cover illustration for the book, along with several pen and ink illustrations for the interior.
Our layout expert is Nathan D. Paoletta, an independent graphic designer, game designer, small press publisher and narrative design consultant. While many people are familiar with Nathan’s original games, like Annalise, Vesna Thaw and the newly backed World Wide Wrestling, he has also worked behind the scenes on layout design for games like Ron Edwards’ Circle of Hands and the Sorcerer Upgrade, Elizabeth Sampat’s It’s Complicated and Russell Collins’ Tears of a Machine. Nathan will be helping us create the overall look of our Time Cellist activity booklet and character sheets.
Finally, we’re also working with author PK Sullivan, known for his work with Margaret Weis Productions on the Firefly RPG, to create some unique historical primers for different time periods as a supplement to the book.
Todd and I are very excited to launch this project – please take a moment to check it out! Every dollar counts. If you’re able to help us out, even with $1, it gets us a little closer to our overall goal. If you aren’t able to back us financially, please consider giving this project a signal boost on your own social media pages.
Many thanks! May your time stream be free of dinosaurs (unless that’s your jam, and then may T-Rexs fall from the skies)!
