Epic Slant Press LLC Epic Slant Press is a small book and game publishing company. The team is currently working on Havok & Hijinks, a family-friendly, fast-paced card game. More details at http://havokandhijinks.com
Epic Slant Press LLC focuses primarily on publishing small literary and artistic projects. With a track record of success we know what it takes to take an idea from zero to market.

Epic Slant PressLLC is a small publishing company based in North Carolina that currently focuses on books and games. Positivity is the driving force that guides each and every project that the company takes on. The team strongly believes that with a positive outlook anyone can achieve great things. Epic Slant Press strives to support small and local businesses, aid fellow entrepreneurs, and donate a portion of all profits to charities and good causes.

Mission: "Why Positivity?" Think of a time when you went back to a store or restaurant and an employee there remembered your name. That simple act probably gave you warm feelings (and might help retain your business!). How about a day when all of your customers were angry or just apathetic, and then you had that one customer that was cheerful and grateful for your help? Positive encounters like these make lasting impressions and it is our mission to better serve the community by creating as many of them as possible.

Keeping Up Recently, the Dice Tower podcast has been discussing the notion that there are too many games to possibly play, review, or even process the flood of games coming at consumers and reviewers from all sides.

Game Review – BaRPiG

BaRPiG Review Pigs are not people, but if they were, I’m sure they’d love to party. That’s the circumstances you’ll find yourself when you play BaRPiG (RPG, get it?). Developed by Jonathan Franklin and Phillip Melchers, this card game is for 3-7 players ages 13 and up, with a playing time of 30 - 60 minutes. While the age range is based on the game’s mechanics, the party in which you’re presumably playing does take place in a pub and alcohol is presented a great deal on the cards and throughout the game.

Haunted by Kickstarter Kickstarter games have changed. According to Ignacy Trzewiczek of Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island fame, they have become that phenomenon which has, in business jargon, "disrupted" an industry: I’ve talked with many publishers and KS creators in 2017. Without giving names and focusing rather on general trend rather than particular cases, there are more and more KS creators who no longer dream about getting their game to regular distribution.
