Latest Updates from Our Project:

We had an incredible week in Washington DC for the Nova Open
6 months ago – Mon, Sep 02, 2019 at 02:58:07 PM

We are back now from the Nova Open where we were running demos and introducing more people to the Genesys Project. We ran 10+ hours of demos from Thursday through Sunday. My favorite part of it all was meeting some of you that have already supported the project and came down to say hi, or to get in a demo to see the game. 

I had such a great time but as you can expect there is a some exhaustion going on today. It's a 5 hour flight from Washington DC to get back to beautiful Oregon. 

The great news is that with the new Pre-order store up on Backerkit we are very close to approaching the next Stretch Goal, and if the interest level we saw at Nova was any indicator, that will be a short run to get there. 

With a little rest this morning, we are off to the races to get the first of our books, The Genesys Project Core Rules over to Dave for Editing and Layout. Just as many of you know that swung by over the weekend, we are looking to go to print at the End of October/beginning of November which will coincide with the Backerkit Pre-order store ending on November 15th. 

Please make certain you are jumping into the backerkit to fill out your surveys and if there are any problems you can message me here or even reach out to me directly at 

One little tidbit. I got to hold those templates you can get on the pre-order store and use them over the weekend. They are very cool, sturdy, and are even nicer than I thought they would be. Due to that, we are also going to talk to the producer and see about getting some custom dice made with our logo on the 6. 

One Shout Out. Arriving in DC last Wednesday I had discovered that we had forgotten our gaming mats. They guys across the walkway next to us, Tablewar jumped in and handed us a beautiful mat to use and said to just pay for it the following day. Real good guys there that allowed us to set our tables up that evening with much less stress about finding a game mat to use. 

If you have been to our facebook page you have seen some of our pictures from the event. If not don't worry, here they are!

Our set up on that first day

Pledge Manager Update + New Add-Ons Revealed
6 months ago – Tue, Aug 27, 2019 at 05:59:28 PM

The Pledge Manager through Backerkit is currently under review and has been since yesterday. So we should be doing a smoke test (testing the system) shortly. I will keep everyone apprised of the situation and we will be live as soon as possible. 

So to keep it all exciting and show off a few things, check out the images. 

A Magnetic Turn Counter and Objective Markers all on smoked 2mm acrylic. The objective markers are perfect for the game with a centerpoint-where objective markers are measured from.

A Template set with tokens for wounds and other effects as well as a 3" and a 5" blast marker. The 3" is the inside with the 5" on the outside. 

Both of these will be available as add ons. More to come. 

The Genesys Project will be in Washington DC for the Nova Open where we will be doing demos and creating factions! Look for us at the bottom of the escalator as you first enter the Vendor areas starting Thursday Morning. 

The Pledge Manager should be up and running by then. 

What's Happening: Pledge Manager, and Events
6 months ago – Tue, Aug 20, 2019 at 07:29:49 PM

First off we are working hard right out of the gate. In fact our pledge manager will be up and running early next week! While it takes a couple weeks for Kickstarter to process with the funds we are not waiting and pushing forward. Are you kidding... we are spent far too long in development for this game to wait around, we are beyond eager to get moving forward.

Pledge Manager

We will have the Pledge Manager up and running through Backerkit on Monday (although it may be later in the day on Monday). Remember that we will keep the Stretch Goals alive through the Pledge Manager which will run into early November. This means please keep spreading the word to help move things forward and lets see where that takes us. 

Within the Pledge Manager will be all the items you had during the Kickstarter Campaign including a few new Add-ons. The Add-ons will include the Primitive Age from the campaign and the following;

The Genesys Project Template Packs (preview coming soon): These include the Blast Templates, Objective Markers, a Magnetic Turn Counter, and Wound Markers. 

PDF Race Pack: Included will be Factions from each domain designed intentionally to give concepts and ideas to those of you that will be jumping right in to create your factions, looking to just modify an existing one, or for those of you that want a faction already built. This will also expand upon the creation stories of the Genesys Worlds found in the books.

Banner for the Nova Open (and Planning for Adepticon)

The Nova Open: We will be at the Nova Open in the Vendor Halls. The event takes place starting next Thursday and we will be up and running with the Pledge Manager there with our own Demo Tables! 

Want to create a faction? Yep... you can do that there. We will have faction cards ready for you, meaning you just need a little bit of time to sit down with us to see how it works. Our demo tables are right at the bottom of the Escalator as you head down into the Vendors Area. 

Want to get in a demo game? Yep we will be doing that as well! We will have two factions there for demos, or bring some minis and lets create a faction specifically for them! 

We will be in the Black

Additionally: On top of everything else..... We are working hard on making certain the goals from the 1st two stretch goals are added into The Birth of Genesys as we are working through editing the books, preparing for what is to come. This means creating artwork, editing and proofing, and probably more than enough to blow my mind. 

It's all exciting stuff and I will be posting images on our Facebook page during the Nova Open and doing an update here as well, especially as we see the Pledge Manager open up. 

Any questions or comments are welcome. If you are in the Washington DC area... pls swing by and say hello! Dave, Myself, and Josh will all be at the event.


We are Funded! The Birth of Genesys: 1st Age
6 months ago – Mon, Aug 12, 2019 at 12:51:30 AM

The Genesys Project is now funded with a big thanks to all of our supporters out there. It was a wild ride, and Dave and I are thankful for all your efforts to make The Genesys Project a reality. 

The best part is that this is just the beginning. We have many extremely fun things planned for the future of this game and we will be keeping everyone here up to date on what is going on with updates and on the Genesys Games site. 

Both Dave and I will be meeting tomorrow morning (we've been meeting every Monday), to lay out the details of what is needed to get the books wrapped up, like final editing, new artwork, and layouts to make certain we get the best product out to you possible in the time we promised. 

The Genesys Project has turned a great concept all those years ago into a reality and I am excited to be moving forward. 

Thank you,


Down to the last Day of the Kickstarter
7 months ago – Sun, Aug 11, 2019 at 06:31:13 AM

Thank you to everyone that is pledged to support The Genesys Project. We are down to our last day of the Kickstarter! Its been an exciting ride and I am very excited to get down to business to move forward with both the Core Rules and The Birth of Genesys- The 1st Age

Once the Kickstarter is complete Dave and I will be working to get the Pledge Manager going shortly and will be in contact doing updates as everything moves forward. We will have some exciting announcements during the Pledge Manager, as well as keeping the Stretch goals alive that were just posted up. 

If you are a backer to one of the "Your Factions in the Core Rules" you should have already received a message from me on what to expect moving forward. If you have not. Please message me through Kickstarter. 

As the last day progresses, please share the information from our Primers with anyone that you know that was interested in game. We have shared a ton of information revealed through the Primer Updates and that information will make it to the Genesys Games website very soon. 

Again Thank You for your Support.
