Bluebeard's Bride Takes the Cake

Award season is finishing up here in the game world, and I’m left staggering around under the weight of what has happened. Bluebeard’s Bride has swept, just absolutely swept the landscape.  It’s competed with large traditional tabletop role-playing game publishing houses, other amazing indie tabletop RPGs, and even got directly in the fray at IndieCade, competing not only against the best indie analogue games, but the best video games as well.

And won. IndieCade. It won IndieCade.

I know we were making something special but, yeah, wow. To have the vision come all the way through, and know that you’re players are absorbing it, are thrilled by it. It’s what we live for, us designers and storytellers.

I’ve been hearing play reports from folks all over the world, and it’s fascinating to hear what grisly things each group gets up to. The game is also being taught as part of the curriculum at at least three university level literary classrooms in the U.S. I’ve had the pleasure of dropping in on some of these lectures, and helping professors adapt play for the classroom.  So hit me up if that’s something you’re interested in!

As always, you can purchase it here if you’re interested in it.
