This crowdfunding project's goal is to release Hibernation, Jesse Terrance Daniels' first product in a pursuit to create a game making company titled Pied Raven Games. Hibernation is a strategic deck building card game where players take on the role of a bear competing for enough food to sleep all winter. It’s fast paced, easy to play and educational. Visit the Kickstarter for more information.
Players are a bear waking from Hibernation, slim & hungry. Time to prepare for next year’s big sleep. But alas, other bears in your surrounding ecosystem have become extremely competitive. Players must race to gather as much of the available food as possible, while fending off foes along the way. To do this you will forage, frenzy, and even steal to stockpile your hoard of food. Better get going, winter will come fast.
Hibernation is a Deck building game. The Deck contains your means of finding food. It starts out forlorn and bare, but players strive to make it a perfect library of food collecting assets. Then, eat the food in proper portions to gain layers of fat. The first one to achieve the 5 required layers of fat, via Hibernation tokens, gets to fall asleep - victorious.
As an exhibitor at the 2016 Boston Festival of Indie Games, here is what the Judges had to say:
"Love the theme. Smart take on a deck-builder."
"Having kids, I think that games that teach are far superior to teaching games, and this is a game that teaches."
"I've never played a game like this before, so it was refreshing."
As a Berkshire County native, Jesse has always loved the outdoors and animals. He attended Berkshire Community College, then transferred and completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts at UMass Amherst. Having spent years harnessing his creativity and playing games, he's now combined these attributes in attempting to establish a company. The purpose is to generate fun games that will stand the test of time and put a player's ability to creatively strategize to the test. With help, not only will Hibernation become a reality, but so will the multitude of additional games Jesse has brewing in his head. Hopefully in time he will be able to hire employees and grow as a company distributing games world wide.
