|Underdog Games makes only one kind of game: gateway games that gamers enjoy as much as non-gamers. It requires creating lots of interesting decisions through simple, intuitive rules. It's tricky, but because it's the only thing we do, we've gotten pretty good at it.
Our first game, Trekking the National Parks, has sold more than 80,000 copies since it was published 18 months ago. Trekking the World is a sequel.
We're different from other publishers in that we sell our games direct to customers and retailers online instead of through the distribution system. Because our business only works if we're really good at direct fulfillment, we have a lot more practice than the average publisher in solving the kinds of fulfillment challenges that come with Kickstarter. In fact we've built our systems around preventing them from ever coming up in the first place. |
