Hello brigands!

Thanks again for all your support so far. With your word of mouth, we've managed to let more people know about Brinkwood than we ever thought possible. Please, keep doing what your doing! Sharing Brinkwood with your friends, comrades, and anyone else you think might be interested is helping us out a ton

Stretch Goals Achieved!

In this update, I wanted to bring your attention to some of our stretch goals! We've already funded our first two, so the Expanded Almanac, Lifepath Lyric Game, and Reformed Background are all set to go!

Our next goal, In the Face of Our Despair, is truly special to me. It's author, Jammi, has been a deep source of inspiration in terms of both the game design and aesthetic of Brinkwood, and has helped immensely in making Brinkwood what it is.

 In addition to being a wonderful game in it's own right, In the Face of Our Despair is a tragic prequel to Brinkwood, and I think it provides a strong, dramatic foundation for more hopeful campaigns of Brinkwood to build upon.

But you don't have to take my word for it. Jammi put together a twitter thread that goes in depth on what you can expect to see in In the Face of Our Despair, as well as what new additions and expansions they have planned! Definitely worth a read!

Thanks again for your support, brigands! Keep up the good fight, and we'll see you in the forest soon!

Thank You - Funded in 7 Hours

Hello brigands,

When I first sat down to work on Brinkwood, it was as part of an itch.io jam that charged creators with making games based on myths and folklore, the appropriately titled "#FolkloreJam." But even before that, I knew it would be special to me.

The real start was the title, dreamed up by a friend of mine, Talen Lee, and a logo that captured my imagination.

That said, it wasn't until I found the community around Brinkwood when my dream started to become a reality. This is a game built by and for that community. On discord, on twitter, on reddit and in the San Jenaro CoOp, it is the combined effort and passion of so many people that make this game what it is. 

So, I dedicate this game to you. The brigand. The rebel. The organizer. The worker. 

And, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
