We truly believe that this partnership with Patrick Rothfuss and his charity, Worldbuilders, will really delight our fans and Rothfuss’ fans as well.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 26, 2013
A tabletop game developer and publisher, is proud to announce their newest project, customized Bicycle playing cards based on celebrated fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind. The company has teamed up with Rothfuss to provide fans with a breathtaking deck of cards that will sweep you into the land of faeries folk, bards, tinkers and more.
Inspired by the incredible world built by Rothfuss, each card will be lovingly designed by artist, Shane Tyree, lead artist and graphic designer with Albino Dragon, who has contributed artwork to a number of projects including projects by Wizards of The Coast, Fantasy Flight Games, Alderac Entertainment Group, Ace of Spies & Genegrafter (Albino Dragon), and the wildly successful Call of Cthulhu, The White Rabbit, and Synthesis playing cards.
“We’re constantly impressed with the responses our projects have with our fans,” said Erik Dahlman, CEO of Albino Dragon. “We truly believe that this partnership with Patrick Rothfuss and his charity, Worldbuilders, will really delight our fans and Rothfuss’ fans as well.”
The project will be funded by Kickstarter and it joins the family of already successful projects Albino Dragon has created using crowdfunding. Pledges from the Kickstarter will go to offsetting printing, shipping, and production. Albino Dragon strives to make the most of their Kickstarters through innovative rewards and updates. For example, the company has regular Google Hangouts with backers and fans so they can give their input into projects. Previous projects have included incorporating backer’s likeness or ideas into card designs.
In less than a week, The Name of the Wind has already generated over $33,000 and accumulated 1700 backers. It’s currently on track to not only be the highest grossing project for Albino Dragon, but also for the entire graphic design category on Kickstarter.
