    [​IMG]There have been a few Kickstarter updates for Gamedec in the last couple of days. The ninth update is for those who like coloring. You can now download a small booklet with 4 images that you can color yourselves. You can also participate in a coloring contest. In that update there is also some information on new pledges.

    The tenth update is about the Aspects game mechanic.

    When we started working on Gamedec, the idea of transferring pen & paper roleplaying experience onto the computer screen was one of our most important goals. What we aimed for was simulating the fact that your character, during p&p sessions, is a work in progress, defined by choices, with character traits emerging in most unexpected situations. That's why we decided to go with the Aspects.

    Aspects are elements of Gamedec's characterization that cover many different sides of a character - some of them are typical traits, some describe assets in possession of your character, Aspects can also tell you about Gamedec's background or skills. Think of them as tags, if you like.

    Few of them we gain during character creation. After answering a set of questions, you are presented with a bunch of Aspects that seem to define your character best. You will gain most of them during your playthrough. Choosing a vicious answer during dialogue, or showing MacGyverish level of problem solutions will give you certain Aspects. Beware, because you may also lose an Aspect. For example: if you have the "Rich" Aspect, people from higher reaches of society will be more willing to talk with you. If you spend too much money, you will lose the "Rich" tag, and dialogue options available before will be greyed out.

    ...

    The eleventh update is a shoutout to another Kickstarter game: Chinatown Detective Agency.
