Hello! I'm Tim Fowers and I make games—boardgames and videogames. My games tell a variety of stories —from heists to airlines to writing pulp novels. I strive to create new mechanisms and settings so my games are unlike anything you've played before. I am driven to create, and I would like to invite people into my creative workshop. As my patron, I want you to experience my work earlier in the process, to have the opportunity to see my projects evolve, and to provide your input and feedback.

I've been making games since 2005. Most people know me for Paperback (novel deckbuilding game) and Burgle Bros (cooperative heist). You can find information about my games at www.fowers.games

I'm not alone in this—my friend Jeff Krause is the programmer and helps a lot with designing. He's somewhat introverted, but he's around, and you'll see him on Discord and on the live streams. Also, the art behind everything is Ryan Goldsberry. He's crazy talented and brings all the worlds in my games to life. Skye Larsen is also helping with testing, print-and-play and getting stuff ready for Patrons. Jeff Beck(Getaway Driver) will also be making guest appearances.

At the entry level tier, Patrons will get access to the Fowers Workshop Discord where we discuss design, talk games and hang out. We will be doing live streams—discussing our current projects and taking questions from Patrons. Occasionally we'll do reviews of cancelled projects that never made it to the public. Also Patrons will get access to what we are currently working on—both print-and-play files and videogame downloads. It'll often be rough, but you'll be able to check it out, give us feedback, and be part of the process. I'll also be giving out discount codes to Patrons that they can use or gift to a friend.

The highest tier Patrons will receive copies of our newest games when we send them to reviewers, before they are released on Kickstarter. These Patrons will also receive postcards featuring Ryan Goldsberry’s art—like Paperback novel covers and Fugitive story panels.
