Brutal Gamer talks with Jasco about Megaman board game

Brutal Gamer had themselves a chat with Jason Hawronsky from Jasco Games about the upcoming Megaman board game release.

From the website:

Jason said that the Mega Man board game was a dream come true, and shared how he came up with the idea. “I came up with the idea while sleeping on a vacation in New York. I was at a Best Western, woke up in the middle of the night, wrote down the rules and concepts for a Mega Man board game, and then went back to sleep.”

Jason also added in that there are pictures of his original concepts from the dream floating around on the internet, and expressed how long he has been a fan of the Mega Man series. “I have been a fan of Mega Man since I was young and my best friend is probably the most fanatical Mega Man fan I know. That also had some influence on my knowledge for the Blue Bomber.”

Jasco Games has announced a new zombie-fighting game they're calling Dead Meat.

Dead Meat

From the announcement:

In Dead Meat: Quarantine Zone America™, two players assume the role of one of four diverse human factions. The tabletop game seeks to innovate the genre by changing the typical zombie game by pitting humans versus humans instead of humans versus zombies, as well as introducing new mechanics to encourage greater tactical decisions. Many of these systems revolve around the inclusions of zombies as an uncontrollable neutral faction that force tactical decisions and keep both players moving. In addition to these new gameplay systems, Dead Meat: Quarantine Zone America™ also features a rich history of the game’s world.

New stretch goal adjustments in the Mega Man Kickstarter

Jasco Games has updated their stretch goal levels for their Mega Man Kickstarter campaign.



Source

From the update:

That having been said, we are happy to announce we have adjusted our Stretch Goal previews! We have been listening to what our backers and fans are saying and decided to update the stretch goals previews with more bonuses and upgrades and make Cut Man available as soon as possible. His addition to the game is one of the larger expenses in manufacturing due to the sheer number of components, but because our backers and CapCom have been behind us so much (see international territories), we believe the risk now is minimal to include his stage into the game at a lower level.

We can’t wait to see what we unlock in the next few weeks and we’re looking forward to getting all of these items produced and finalized!
