Heads Up – Iconica Changes Coming Soon

At the very end of 2007, I self-published my first game – Iconica. This strategy game features character archetypes from a fictional world setting I’ve created called Rynaga. Well, Iconica is coming to an end. Sort of. Read on.

At some point in 2019, current (or first edition) Iconica and Iconica Travels sets will no longer be available on my Etsy Shop. These sets will go out of print, making them kinda rare from a collection standpoint.

This is for a few main reasons:

  1. We make everything in small batches and we’re nearing the end of a print cycle.

  2. We’ll be putting the majority of upcoming investments into some new projects.

  3. We’re laying the groundwork for the next “phase” of World of Rynaga content.

I started Iconica as a game design project. An experiment really. It turned into so much more. It’s provided me with a practical education in tabletop game development. Iconica is a way for me to connect with the local gaming scene in Phoenix. It opens opportunities for me to share experiences on the business of creativity. This project has led to so many awesome experiences, which I’ve shared in person with students, peers, and employers through a presentation called Making the Game.

So, what’s the bottom line here? First, a big Thank You if you’ve supported this project over the years!

And second, if you’ve been on the fence about getting an Iconica set or two, you might want to consider picking them up. If you know anyone who’s interested in indie games, tell them about Iconica. Even though this chapter of Iconica will end, as long as I’m alive and kicking it’s not the end of the story!
