What's Bill Tiller been up to? Board games! 06 Aug, 2020 / 3 comments

While renowned illustrator and one-time Autumn Moon CEO Bill Tiller continues his slow, NDA-shrouded efforts to get A Vampyre Story 2 financed, his drawing hand hasn't just been sitting around idle. He's been recruited as the artist of a crowdfunded board game.

It's called The Shivers, which describes itself as a "mystery pop-up Role-Playing Game for 2-5 players, exploring a spooky mansion filled with hidden secrets!" With 28 hours to go at the time of this writing, the Kickstarter has raised $490,000. Its goal: $40,000. Well, good for them, but when I think about how Bill's AVS prequel Kickstarter seven years back couldn't come close to its $200,000 goal, well, the contrast is saddening.

Check out the project for The Shivers to get a sense of its Tilleresque beauty, and do excuse me while I come up with some-assed board game concept. Apparently that's where the money is.

    Is that Murray, framed on the wall of the children's nursery?! That's... evil



    And of course right next to Murray is a framed Froderick. :D

    So... future Vampyre Story boardgame -- confirmed. /s

    I'd still love more Bill Tiller video games and I did just back this game thanks to this news post. I saw this game mentioned briefly but I skipped over it. Happy to hear that Bill was involved with this!
