Announcing Jack the Ripper!
August 24, 2015 10:13 pm CDT
One of the projects that we've been working hard on here at Crypt Monkey is getting an agreement together for exclusive rights to publish Jack the Ripper; a card game that I designed along with Anthony Morris, John Watson, and James Gaugh. This is something we've really been looking forward to and I can tell you that it's been hard keeping it under wraps! But finally I can say that on Sunday, August 23rd I got together with the guys and we signed the agreement to make Jack the Ripper a Crypt Monkey Studios primer game.
Jack is a great game that's full of strategy, a lot of fun to play, and fits perfectly within the framework of a Crypt Monkey Studios primer game. In Jack the Ripper, you are transported back to 1888 during a scavenger hunt. Searching for one of your last items, you become trapped along with other of scavenger hunters as you all become aware that one of you is the Whitechapel Murderer. Suffice to say, we are super proud of this game and I had a great time designing it with John, James, and Anthony.
So where are we? Jack the Ripper is pretty far along its testing schedule, in beta right now, and the artwork is currently in production. We expect to have Jack's site up sometime in October and can't wait to hear what you think.
In the meantime, feel free to send us your questions and comments and we'll keep you up to date as there is news on Jack the Ripper.
