TAKE THE PLAYER SURVEY AND SHAPE THE FUTURE!
I’m not exactly sure what the device above is supposed to be, but it sure looks futuristic, right? And that’s a pretty good metaphor for my current thoughts on Adventure Snack: Year 4. I have a general idea of the kinds of quests, projects, and features we may explore, but I need your help to crystalize those plans and develop a roadmap. Let’s map out that road!
Last year’s survey led to me learning a damn programming language, so know that I take your feedback seriously!
The Adventure Snack Player Survey quick factz:
The survey is less than 10 questions.
It’ll take ~5 minutes to fill out.
Everyone who takes the survey gets a free print-n-play gamebook zine!
(1) lucky adventurer will win a $50 eBay gift card!
Complete the survey by Thursday, December 22nd to be eligible to win.
All the best stuff is on eBay. I got a vintage Flying Toaster tie on eBay for $5 recently. I know that’s off-topic, but still, it’s a very cool tie.
One last thing. A bit of feedback I got last year was to “gamify” the survey. So this year, I added a skill tree! In video games, skill trees are used to determine how a player levels up. For example, a player can go on a “Bruiser” path to upgrade their character’s strength or a “Magic” path to upgrade their ability to chuck fireballs at dumpsters.
You can level up Adventure Snack by helping choose what project we pursue next year. Here’s a sneak peek. The full chart’s in the survey…
Thanks for taking the survey and helping me make Adventure Snack the best email newsletter RPG it can possibly be!
YOUR 2022 QUEST LOG
The night air is crisp and the sabrewolves howl in the distance. They howl constantly and at a higher pitch than you’d expect. It’s super annoying!
But the fire is warm. Join me by the campfire, adventurer, as I regale you with the tales of our party’s exploits over the past year. Let me open the book and see what brave yarns lie in wait. Did you miss one of these quests? Complete it anytime, at your leisure. There are 80 quests in the archives.
You explored far-off realms. From the dark and decrepit tunnels of your disapproving moleman father to the oversaturated oceans of Lisa Frank dolphins, you were unafraid to venture into new and unfamiliar territory this year. Even when it made you extremely nauseous.
You faced-off against dangerous foes. You battled a hippogriff with an impractically long sword, took on subway werewolves with unstable magic powers, and faced a human-hating alien invader with merely your wits. (And in some paths, a pulverizer gun.) When it comes to mortal enemies, you never backed down from a fight.
You experienced our high-tech future. You used AI to create gorgeous and/or unfathomable works of generative art and learn the secrets of the universe in two of the most commented on quests of all-time. When it came to advanced technology, you mastered it all this year, even the cutting edge DVD-VCR Combo Player.
You cavorted like royalty. You threw some wild events this year, like an unruly monster mash and a giant robot spring break. It felt like the good times lasted forever, which was literally the case on your infinity vacation. When it came to living, laughing, and loving, no one did those three things better than you.
You triumphed over monetary adversity. You held down multiple jobs this year: an adventurer-for-hire with a shady client, a psychic-for-hire at your local Applebee’s, and a waiter-for-money serving the Grim Reaper. None of it broke your soul, not even suffering kid detective burnout or having to hunt down your bigfoot landlord.
You assisted those in peril. You helped a wizard counsel acquire their crystals, a superhero find their purpose, and a bunny rabbit get revenge. Not only did you save our world by playing Mr. Bucket, but you helped scientists discover a Wordleverse beyond our own. You were most generous with your time.
The campfire is still roaring. Before we put it out for forest safety reasons, I’d love to hear from you. Answer as many of these as you like…
