2022! We have arrived!
You might have noticed we didn't post an update for December... 2021 was such a wild and busy year we all took some extended time off over Christmas. Now we are back! refreshed, revitalised, and ready to go. We have so much planned for 2022. Lots I can't talk about just yet, but some I can.
Let's dive in.
Two19 Retreat 🏕️
Every year we hold the annual Two19 company retreat, 2021 was no exception. We like to step away from our usual scenery and find somewhere that will get the creative juices flowing. Usually well into the countryside with little to no Internet access!
The Two19 retreat is an opportunity for us to plan out the year ahead, reflect on the year gone by and just have a chance to work on our projects without distractions.
Here are some of the things we have planned for 2022. If there is nothing below this sentence, Alex and Nathan made me cut it all out...
Kingless Expansion 🃏
It's no secret now that we have been working on an expansion to Kingless. Towards the end of 2021, we made huge progress in locking down the core mechanics, signing off on a lot of the big-ticket items at the Two19 retreat.
2022 marked the point of us moving into our "Friends and Family" playtesting. This is always a really nerve-wracking time for us, but key to making sure the game actually works outside of our own minds.
While playtesting is ongoing, we are beginning on the first cut of the artwork. Obviously, this is a huge process, but perhaps one of the most exciting. At least visually!
New Stuff! 🎉
Perhaps a little unknown fact about Two19, we have some experienced artisans within the team. Leather Craft and Blacksmithing are two of them.
We also have a love for really high-quality products. We try to reflect that in everything we do. We teased previously some handmade leather dice bags we have been working on. We are still testing some different styles and designs, but getting close to the final product.
We are also working on some other premium tabletop gaming accessories. I will share some photos on our socials pretty soon for those. It's been really fun designing, building, and combining skills from two different industries into our pedigree.
I'm super excited for what's to come in 2022, I know the rest of the team are too!
Oh, before I forget. We have a name for the expansion now too... We are not quite ready for the full announcement just yet as we are still in the process of working out the final design for the logo. But, as a dedicated reader of The Big Milkshake, you get to hear it first!
Kingless: Festival of Explosions! 💥
But don't tell anyone just yet!
Until next time.
