FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Announcing Exclusive Titan Series Box Art
Calliope Games offers its backers exclusive box art by legendary artists
Redmond, WA-April 18, 2015. Calliope Games announced a new benefit to backers of their Titan Series Kickstarter. All backers at the Muse, Titan, and Mt. Olympus levels will now receive exclusive backer-only box art. World-class artists Echo Chernik (Shadowrun), Larry Elmore (Dungeons & Dragons), Andrew Hepworth (Exalted, Love Letter), and John Kovalic (Munchkin) have already been recruited, and Calliope is looking to Titan Series backers to see what other artists they’d like to see join the Titan team.
“Our backers expressed an interest in exclusive box art early on.” said Ray Wehrs, President of Calliope Games. “While backer-exclusive art wasn’t a part of our initial plan, we saw this as an opportunity to express our immeasurable gratitude to the community for the support we’ve had so far. We also want to stay true to our promise of making backers a pivotal part of the game creation process.”
Having raised nearly $100,000 at the time of this release, the Titan Series is more than 2/3 of the way funded with over 40 more days to go. In addition to an all-star designer lineup including Jordan Weisman, Richard Garfield, and Eric Lang, stretch goals include games from renowned designers James Ernest, Matt Forbeck, and Peggy Brown. Other designers–at least one of whom hails from Europe–are lined up as secret stretch goals.
Titan Series backers receive games at nearly 50% off the target retail price and will be an integral part of the game development process. Backers will be consulted regarding gameplay, art choices, game themes, and game content.
