Title: The Gourd of the Beans: An Unplanned Adventure
Post by: klownstein on July 24, 2015, 08:50:10 PM
On Middle-teen-earth, a small hoddit is about to embark on a dangerous and hazardous quest.  You are Frobo Baddins, an abused charity case and alleged village idiot who has been assigned an apparently simple quest, to make the preparations for Uncle Bildo's birthday party.  But, from an apparently inauspicious beginning, an unplanned adventure is about to begin.

Visit us at: jollyrogercrew.com (http://jollyrogercrew.com) to download the game.

At long last, my Gourd of the Beans project is ready for release.  I recruited help from two of my brothers who made significant contributions to the game.  It has been a labor of love and I have particularly enjoyed the artwork that I made for the game.  After all the work, however, we began to wonder if there is still a large enough audience that enjoys these retro games to continue our development.  As such we started a Kickstarter campaign to gauge that interest.  We would love to continue development and have already completed a significant portion of the 'next' game as well as flushed out most of the planned storyline. 

If you believe that we have a worthy goal, please consider contributing to our cause.  I would ask that you please share our game with your friends that might have interest in it.  Further, please do not upload the game to other sites until after the Kickstarter campaign has concluded (in about a month) so that interested individuals will be directed to our website and will have become acquainted with our campaign.

The Kickstarter campaign can be found at:

Good luck, on the kickstarter campaign. It will be interesting to see how that works out. I have thought about running one before but never got around to it.

Good Job on getting the Hoddit game finished, that looks like a pretty substantial accomplishment.

I have gone ahead and taken down the old demo from the game page.

Alright Klownstein, it has been quite a while now since the kickstarter campaign has ended. So like you requested, I pulled the game from the download game section. I have gone ahead and made it available again.

Keep us posted on the second installment

I think that their Kickstarter failed.
