This is where the really exciting stuff is! Games, stories, and worlds that have, or will soon, make a splash in the world. Some are solo endeavers, others are created through partnerships...all fueled by blood, sweat, and tears!

Planecrafters is a tableau-building game set in a fantasy golden age of aviation. Hire employees, build lots of fantasy flyers, and get paid! Planecrafters is the product of a three year partnership with good friend and designer, Michael Patience. It has already received great praise from reviewers and fellow designers and it's launching on Kickstarter in June of 2018. For more info, visit www.paisleyboardgames.com/planecrafters.
Lightning & Bolt
Lightning & Bolt is a cooperative tile-matching game. In LIGHTNING & BOLT, the city of Midtown is being terrorized by the Evil Doctor, and it's up to Lightning & Bolt to swoop in and save the day! Lightning's game mechanics are lighter and less complex, while Bolt has more complex decisions to make. It's a beautiful parent/child gateway game that already went to Kickstarter in a limited run, but will see a broader campaign later this year. Lightning and Bolt is the brainchild of good friend and designer David Somerville, creator of Vast: Crystal Caverns.
The Brainstormer is a creative tool designed to kindle new ideas for stories and art. The original concept was created while I was studying concept art in school and was used to facilitate independent design assignments. In 2007, it became a web based app and in 2010, it started its long run as a popular iOS app, created by Joel Davis of Tapnik Studios. New expansions for the Brainstormer have already been developed and there are future plans for the tool yet to be seen.
