It’s been five months and nineteen days since we last emailed you. How’s that for our no-spam rule? We’ve been working hard on polishing Overlords of Infamy and we have several updates to share with you.
We are excited to announce that on February 17th, 2016, Obscure Reference Games will be launching the official Kickstarter for Overlords of Infamy! Mark those calendars (we’ll send an email reminder again) and get ready to receive a copy of our game before everyone else. We have a few special treats planned for those who back us, such as…
Waffles the Corgi is an exclusive evil Overlord, and will be provided to backers of the Kickstarter for free! Waffles will also be available as part of a promo pack at a later date for those who are unable to back on Kickstarter.
“When it comes to pets, the Adventuring Hero hit the jackpot. Waffles the Corgi was just about the friendliest puppy to ever prance around the Kingdom of Good. But, as their name implies, the Hero was, more often than not, adventuring far away from home. Naturally, Waffles was sad and worried for his human while he was gone, but showed them that much more love whenever they returned home.
One day, after a particularly long adventure, the Hero returned to Headquarters with a curious relic: The Femur of Acute Brilliance. To Waffles, the relic looked like a huge, delicious bone. Surely his human wouldn’t mind if he just took a few bites, right? Waffles leapt up and snatched the bone from the Hero’s hand. In an instant, the Femur of Acute Brilliance flooded Waffles with sapience and a genius-level intellect. Waffles immediately lamented his short stature and stubby legs. He hated that the Hero neglected him for days and weeks on end. He loathed the fact that he couldn’t contort his face to stop smiling. To top things off, the Hero berated and punished him for nibbling on the bone.
Waffles ran from his master and fashioned a new home for himself away from the Kingdom of Good. If he could no longer be blissfully ignorant about the world, he’d strive to make the world suffer along with him…”
