If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Generally considered good words to live by for most things (example, if you fail to eat 20lbs of pudding, I don’t know if I’d really recommend trying it again), Idle Ideas Inc. has restarted their Kickstarter campaign for Sandstorm, their new virtual tabletop software. This new campaign has a few changes compared to the previous.
It’s a small world after all.
Sorry about that, but it’s becoming more and more true with each passing day. For example, I was just talking with one friend in Wales and another in Australia at the same time. And here’s the thing: that’s not anywhere near such a big deal as it used to be. The fact that you read that and probably went, “yeah, so what? I do that all the time.” just proves my point. And, us being gamers, if we know someone, we probably want to game with them. Well, Sandstorm is a new virtual tabletop that can help make that a reality. They’re up on Kickstarter now.
Idle Ideas Inc. is running a Kickstarter campaign for Mote, their new virtual tabletop program.
From the campaign:
Our project is a non-profit effort to bring our vision of a Virtual Tabletop community to life.
Mote, in a nutshell, is a free and open software development project centered around a Virtual Tabletop built on top of MapTool, which is, quite possibly, the most widely known, and respected open-sourced VTT project of its kind. Mote does everything MapTool can do, but better, and it can do many things beyond MapTool’s frozen feature set.
Mote is heavily enhanced, with a cleaner interface, an intuitive control scheme, the latest bug fixes, and chock full of features relevant to the VTT user base.
