One Post to Update Them AllJuly 30, 2011
I have been criminally negligent in updating this blog. Since Posthuman Studios went independent, we’ve all been rather busy. There’s a lot to report on over the past year, however, so here’s one massive catch-up post in bulletpoint format:
- We released several Eclipse Phase supplements: Gatecrashing, a sourcebook on exoplanet exploration; Continuity, a PDF-exclusive adventure with audio components; and Ego Hunter, a PDF-exclusive adventure I wrote where everyone plays a fork of the same character. These can all be found on our Releases page.
- In 2010, Eclipse Phase won a Gold ENnie Award for Best Writing and Silver Awards for Best Cover and Product of the Year.
- The 2010 End-of-Year Report for Posthuman Studios provides a break down of how our first year went, offers some transparent numbers about sales and other biz, and explains some of our philosophy behind Creative Commons licensing.
- Our Sunward sourcebook for EP was nominated for an Origins Award this year for Best Sourcebook, but sadly did not win.
- Fellow Posthuman Adam Jury posted up his Ignite presentation on our publishing efforts and philosophy.
- We took Eclipse Phase in for a third reprint. This one has some new art (all Creative Commons-licensed now), is updated with all of the errata, and features a better paper stock and two bookmarks.
- Posthuman Studios recently went independent from our previous publishing partner, Sandstorm Productions.
- Eclipse Phase received 6 ENnie nominations this year. Gatecrashing is up for Best Writing, Best Supplement, Best Production Values, and Product of the Year; the Continuity adventure is up for Best Electronic Book; and the EP Gamemaster Pack is nominated for Best Aid/Accessory. Voting is already over, we hear the results at the Gen Con ENnie ceremony on Friday August 5th.
- Our next sourcebook, Panopticon, is shipping now from the printers — we’ll have it at Gen Con!
