Unpub

The Winter 2015 issue of Casual Game Insider is now in stock and available for sale! Print and digital versions are available.

How Unpub has improved Planet Chasers, a game of solar system exploration in which all players share the same dice roll to move their rockets, but must decide when to spend fuel to use the full roll.

FireBreak is a cooperative forest fire fighting game. It was made better over a series of Unpub events because of designers and players who were willing to play it and offer constructive feedback.
