2019 was a year of big changes for OPR, during which we polished our games a lot as well as re-released a lot of old games. We also added a ton of new features that we always thought the project needed, and now we feel pretty stable in our offering.
That being said, we want 2020 to be an even bigger year for OPR!
Since we’re stable and things have calmed down this is the perfect opportunity to start expanding what we provide to our players. This year we want to release new games, as well as delve into unknown territory and try completely new things, so it’s going to be a very interesting journey.
To help us with that, we’re launching a new community survey today: https://forms.gle/WCvXCSbTLMarM1rP8
This community survey is a bit different from the last one, in that we’re asking for a much broader range of opinions on a multitude of topics. Because of this we’ve added an extra blank field to each question so that if you don’t find the option you want in the list, then you can add your own comment.
There are a couple of things we’d like to highlight about the questions:
Question 1 – Game Jam: The plan right now is to do a 48hr game jam that takes place over a weekend, where everyone is given a simple theme to build a one-page game around. We’ll be providing all of the documents and guidelines to make the process as simple and possible, and we’re thinking of using itch.io for the uploads.
Question 2 – New Games: For this question we’d like to know what games you’d actually be interested in playing, which you already have models for or for which you’d buy new models. The list is quite short so feel free to add any additional themes you’re interested in, as we’ve surely missed a ton of popular ones.
Question 3 – Paper Miniatures: Here we’re talking about paper miniatures for a completely new game and/or project, and not for our existing games. Right now we’re not too keen on making miniatures for all of our existing armies (they’re far too many), but please do leave your opinion in the blank space.
Question 4 – Physical Miniatures: We’ve been in contact with an awesome miniatures company that already has a few KS projects under its belt, and we’re looking to see if it would make sense to collaborate on a new project. The main idea would be to create a custom game that comes with a two player set and that can be expanded upon, but that can be fully enjoyed as a stand-alone boxed game. This way people can get awesome miniatures that they can play with forever, instead of having to buy in to yet another model line that they’re afraid might be abandoned one day.
Question 5 – Expansions: Here we’re talking about expansion booklets that are akin to the full rulebooks, so not just a one-page affair (like the skirmish campaign rules). The narrative campaigns would come with their own storyline and multiple scenarios, whilst the other expansions would have special rules, new mission types, random events, etc.
If you have a minute to spare please take the community survey, it really helps a lot: : https://forms.gle/WCvXCSbTLMarM1rP8
