Ironmark Games Opens Its Doors
Well, not really, since there aren’t any actual doors to open. We DO have a sweet new website however, which we’ll tell you more about in a second.
First, a word about who we are. We are a group of gamers that has been running a weekly board game group on Long Island since around 2008, starting with just a few people and growing to over twenty. Recently, a few of us discovered that we each had independently started working on our own game concepts, and the natural outcome was to band together and pool our efforts. Among the five team members of Ironmark Games we have a number of complementary skill sets relevant to board game development, and working as a group allows us to be much more effective than if we were to go about it alone (not to mention the very real sense of motivation that comes with creating something as a team).
We have big plans in store as far as game development is concerned. Each of the three developers on the team has several projects in various stages of design and prototyping, so there is no shortage of ideas. We decided to kick things off with the smallest and simplest project we possibly could in order to learn the ropes of the entire idea-to-product process without being distracted by the complexities (and monetary requirements) of bigger games. The idea is for each project to be a little bigger than the last, until we get to a point where we are able to make anything that we dream up a reality.
The website you see here is the very first bare-bones version, designed to have just the necessities to get things rolling. In the future we plan to expand it quite significantly by adding not just a lot more information about future projects but also a fully featured blog where we can share development stories and provide an insight into our process. The end goal is for this website to be a very useful resource to the board game development community as a whole, and not just a platform to promote our own products.
In the meantime feel free to sign up for our newsletter using the form at the bottom of the page. We would also be very happy to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will read everything we receive, we promise. Sometimes more than once.
