Join me in the exploration of why we love table top games through long form interviews with game designers and industry influencers.

GARRY SNOW

Help us share the story of the world’s largest game store!

Communities are not just bound by borders – they are often comprised of people with shared passions. A local game store is a unique place where people can connect with each other, create memories, and build community.

Celebrating 40 years of operation, the Sentry Box in Calgary Alberta has become an inviting space for people of all backgrounds who have a love for table top games such as Dungeons and Dragons.

We share the unique history and stories of the Sentry Box by interviewing the owner, long-time customers, current and former employees, and local industry influencers who have all been connected by the local game store.

We also explore why games are the perfect tool for breaking down barriers and creating common ground between people of diverse backgrounds.

Where will be it be viewed?

The completed film will be submitted to festivals and game conventions in the new year. After that we hope to eventually get it on various streaming services, where your name in the credits will live on forever!

If you are a convention or festival that would like to screen the documentary, please reach out to me, either here or on social media!

 

Reward Tiers

The base reward gets you early digital access and bonus features, all for the price of a cup of coffee. If you want to get your name added to the end credits as a supporter, we have three different levels – Copper, Silver and Gold – in descending order and font sizes.

Where your support is going

Your generous support will go towards completing the final post-production including a feature-length edit, color-grading and preparing it for delivery.

Bonus Material

We could only include a fraction of the 20+ hours of interviews that we captured. Our Kickstarter backers get access to some of the full-length interviews featuring some amazing analysis on games and why they are a special part of our lives. 

We wanted the Dieku System to be so simple it could be conveyed in an instruction manual. Inspired by that design aesthetic, we created the Dunjön RPG to showcase the Dieku System.

We are sharing this Beta version for playtesting, with links within the document to provide feedback and suggestions.

The Dieku System has been a labor of love, and we are thrilled to share it with the table top role playing game world. To support our continued work on the Dieku System, we would appreciate you becoming a Patron!

 

  • Exclusive Dieku System Häks to try
  • New monsters, adventures, magic items, classes, and spells
  • The occasional one-shot game that uses the Dieku System
  • Early access to new YouTube videos reviewing other games and discussing game design theory
  • Sneak peeks and discounts for digital purchases of games that we are working on, including The Cities Grimm and The Secret World of Zar!

The Cities Grimm will be Dieku Game’s first full RPG game that will be launching the second half of 2021. The setting takes place in a fictional mid-30’s city, combining paranormal investigation, the occult, golden age heroes, pre-WW2 espionage, ancient mysticism, and the criminal underground. Think of it like the Maltese Falcon with an X-Files twist!

How does Grimm end?

We give you the setting, and you can do whatever you want without having to adhere to any canon. All we know is that Grimm ends up disappearing off the map – but it will be up to your table to decide how that happens. Do Nazis open an inter-dimensional gateway? Do aliens attack? Do demons from the underworld invade? Take the building blocks provided, and have as many fun adventures as possible before you blow the whole damn thing up!! You decide how Grimm ends!

 

Kickstarter coming soon!

We will be launching The Cities Grimm Kickstarter upon completion of Dieku System playtesting through the Dunjön micro-RPG.
