Frogdice’s President & CEO, Michael Hartman, was interviewed by the Lexington Herald newspaper and WEKU radio station about Frogdice’s part of Kentucky’s growing gaming and tech community.

Martin: Frogdice has been around now about 18 years … Was it difficult in 1996 to capitalize a startup gamer company?

Hartman: Definitely. E-commerce was in its extreme infancy. People felt that if you were going to do something on the Internet, it should be free. That was a really hard thing to combat.

The entire interview was also part of a WEKU radio broadcast and podcast.

STASH: No Loot Left Behind. Kickstarter live.

Posted by:

Stash is a multiplayer online RPG with turn based combat and epic amounts of loot. Be part of the story and own a piece of the world.

http://kck.st/1laosXK

We are bringing the old school feel of tabletop, pen-and-paper, and MUD gaming to online gaming. Core features include:

  • Turn based, tactical grid combat.
  • Stash your treasures in your personal Base of Operations, which you can build, upgrade, and decorate from bedroll to fortress.
  • Craft items to use, sell, or enter into competitions.
  • Massive character customization via class, race, build, gear, cosmetics, costumes, pets, mounts, and more.
  • Cool world story with a unique twist. Players affect the world and the story.
  • Both hand crafted and procedurally generated/random dungeons.
  • Huge world with hundreds of unique locations, tons of monsters, and epic amounts of loot.
  • Clans: form with friends and compete for dominance as well as optional solo or group PvP.

That is just the beginning. Check out the full campaign for a video and more details.

Early Bird Backers (the first 250) get a free copy of either ReignMaker or Dungeon of Elements.

We would greatly appreciate your pledge of support. Any help spreading the word would also be a huge help.

ReignMaker has been Greenlit on Steam!

Posted by:

 greenlit

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.
