Why a new game, instead of another 7GS? The answer is complex, involving earnings from 7GS, code portability, and some burnout. In short, I'm moving my game development to new tools, and TorB is a way to learn new tools, refresh myself, and release a game in a shorter time span than a 7GS sequel. I hope begin work on a sequel after this quicker game is shipped.
Family. Generations. The rise of western civilization. Survival means victory. The journey crafts your story.
7 Grand Steps is an abstract telling of the lives of our ancestors. Part board game, part machine, part nod to computer games of yore, it begins with a simple mechanic. Spend tokens to traverse the wheel of life. Earn tokens by tempting the jaws of death. Then, like layers upon a pearl, game play expands, allowing fresh tactics and strategies which, turn by turn, drive a sophisticated, emergent narrative. How you play defines the lives of one family's generations through the changing ages.
