Well folks, it’s all over except for the loose ends. We’ve had a good run of a solid decade. First as D3 Games and then closing out as D3 Adventures. We existed in three states and had contractors from across the globe. What started as a vanity project to release my world of Kamarathin grew into something far more.
Looking back, the evidence is pretty clear that I was a mediocre game publisher, but the endeavor allowed me to help others release their imaginations in digital and print and to put together a group of individuals who might not have met otherwise. I know that at least two people would never have been in the game industry had it not been for their experiences with D3. That is a big win for me.
Our Line Developers are scattering to the gaming winds and bringing their product lines with them. Some, like Curtis Baum (Dire Corgi Games) and Jim Cook (4 Devils Studio) have already begun bringing their lines out under a new umbrella. Others may soon follow, if you don’t see a product line you’ve been following in the wild, reach out and we’ll see if we can’t put you in touch with the powers that be.
I met some amazingly creative folks and the experience has taught me that, while I am likely not going to be a successful publisher, I just might be a successful “fixer”. Throughout my life I’ve become “The guy that knows a guy” and the connections I’ve made over the last 10 years has only shown how true that is. To this end, Anne and I have joined forces with a pair of our friends to take our experience with gaming conventions and our collective connections to start up a new company called Game Theory Events. Information will be slowly trickling out until the big announcement at the end of February.
As for D3, well, I’ll be closing down the website, the Facebook Page, and our products from the various online stores over the following weeks as time permits. If you happen to be in the Houston area for OwlCon there will even be a selection of hard copies that we had left over from conventions available for sale and I’ll be around there, shepherding the special guests.
Until then, thank you for all of your patronage, kind words and support.
