We did it! The Stash kickstarter was a wonderful success.
It is clear that we already have the foundation of an amazing community for this game.
After a few short months (that felt longer), and a few weeks before public launch, ReignMaker (formerly known as Tower of Elements 2) has been Greenlit by Steam!
“Our team has poured their hearts and souls into this game to make it as wonderful as possible. We have agonized over so many details and decisions to make ReignMaker a delight to play,” said Michael Hartman, CEO of Frogdice. “Being Greenlit on Steam is a testament to Frogdice’s progression as a studio. Each game builds on the last and they keep getting better and better.”
Frogdice will be an exhibitor at PAX East, April 11-13, 2014. Attendees will be able to play ReignMaker on PC, iPad, Android, and Windows Surface. Mac and Linux platforms will also be fully supported at launch.
“One of the features I am most proud of is the Policy System. It introduces role playing elements to a city building game,” said Pang Hartman, VP and Creative Director of Frogdice and lead designer on ReignMaker. She added, “I also worked into the story homages to players who have been with us for up to 17 years, and Twitch streamers that have supported us for 7 months.”
Frogdice devotes tremendous effort towards maintaining a positive and safe community for their players. This includes online and offline games. The result is a welcoming and fanatically loyal community of gamers and fans. Being Greenlit on Steam is yet another example of the community’s tremendous support.
Dungeon of Elements is an RPG dungeon crawler with combat inspired by Dr. Mario and Tetris. It also has crafting, collecting, achievements, gear, a branching story, pets, and many other cool features.
Please help us get the word out about this cool deal and promotion.

The Tower of Elements 2 kickstarter was a huge success. We ended at 173% funding with 388 backers. Thank you everyone for your support and for helping us spread the word.
We are extremely excited to announce the launch of the Tower of Elements 2 Kickstarter campaign. Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that before we even had a chance to get this news posted, the campaign funded! We surpassed our goal in just 26 hours!
Thank you to our fans both old and new for once again showing their support for our games.
How can you help with the campaign?
1) Back the project! That is of course the #1 best and most important way to show support.
2) Share the link with friends, family, gamers, blogs, web sites, Facebook, twitter, news entities, everyone. This link is easy to remember: http://kickstarter.frogdice.com
3) Post comments on the ToE2 Kickstarter page. We really need to get more discussion going in there. Ask questions. Chat. Anything! There are metrics that actually count comments as a way to raise our profile and boost our exposure.
With 4 days left in the DoE Halloween Contest, the Channel vs. Channel competition is really close.
The battle will continue until October 24th at 11:59 pm (EDT). Get your scores submitted! (UPDATE: Extending this deadline by 6 hours to give everyone at different time zones a chance to get their final submissions in. October 25th at 6am now.)
Channels: It looks like the deciding factor is going to be which channels beat DoE on stream/video. Your viewers seem to have rallied hard to your support and really want your channel to take home the Grand Prize!

The good folks at GameSkinny interviewed CEO Michael Hartman and VP Pang Hartman about “Making Video Games a Positive Influence for Your Kids.” they wrote:
Michael and Pang aren’t just game developers with Frogdice, they’re also parents to two young (10 and 7 years old) girls who are avid gamers themselves. We caught up with them to chat about how they manage gaming to reinforce it’s positive benefits for their family.

Gaming website, Just Press Start, interviewed Mr. Hartman for their one hour podcast. They covered a variety of topics including accessibility, community, and charity. From the Just Press Start interview page:
Michael Hartman from Frogdice Games is my guest this time for a great discussion about the match-3/tower defense hybrid Tower of Elements (available here), and the upcoming Dungeon of Elements. We also spend time talking about the trials of indie development, how a company like Frogdice has survived since 1996 thanks to the amazing community surrounding games like Threshold, and why charity is so important to the team. Frogdice Games has now become one of my favorite companies, and I think after you listen to this, they’ll become one of yours as well.
