    Hi, Adam, just a heads-up in case you weren’t aware, as you launch your Kickstarter for Thrive…it would probably be hugely beneficial to get your game featured on Tabletop Simulator’s spotlight during at least the first few days of the campaign. It could actually be incredibly easy to accomplish this; basically, all you might have to do is ask politely.

    Why do I say that? Well, I’ve been developing a board game (see the blog listed below) and I built a TTS version of it, but I had some questions and reservations about actually making it available on the workshop, so I contacted one of the TTS devs through Steam. During the course of our discussion, she offered to feature it upon request if I put it up on the workshop. So, they must not have an overwhelming number of featuring requests and/or are really nice people to work with.

    This is fantastic advice. Reaching out now. Let me know if you want a playtester at some point for your project ;)!

    Play testing the game has been awesome and I can’t wait to play this more with friends and family!

    I just heard your interview on the Cardboard Herald which got me to look you up, download your podcast (which I’m excited to start listening to) and look into Thrive, which I’m pretty sure I’ll be backing 🙂 I like everything I’ve seen and heard so far. I hope you guys are super successful with it!!
