Top News Stories

Zinequest 4 moved to August: After a confusing tweet from a third party, Kickstarter Game Director Anya Combs made the (mostly) official announcement that Zinequest 2022 would be moving to August to coincide with GenCon. As a note, if you ever wonder why companies and their representatives refuse to make official comments on things like this prior to an announcement, this shows exactly why.

Discussion of the Week

So, What To Do About ZineQuest?: Following on the heels of Kickstarter’s blockchain announcement last month, the news that ZineQuest would be moved – barely weeks before it traditionally begins, throwing off plans, and now coinciding with GenCon which many fear will cut down on the number of eyeballs small creators will be able to draw – has creators redoubling their conversations on what their future with Kickstarter will be. It’s a complicated issue, but in the immediate future there are efforts to rally the community to take ZineQuest’s February slot. ZINE MONTH helmed by Feral Indie Studio seems promising; we’re already lurking in its Discord (with more than 400 members as of this writing) to see how things progress.
