Rocket Race! is Launched

Aegis of Terra
A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to work on an exciting new project by TripleAce games called Rocket Race!  It was a little last minute but it was a card game based on a Steampunk theme, and I jumped at the opportunity to do some work for them.  Turns out it's just been released, and even better, 3 of the cards I worked on (with some help from Robot With a Smile to meet the deadlines) are featured in their announcement marketing.  My favorite (Aegis of Terra, seen above) was not included in the announcement image, but Anti-Gravity Painted Vanes, Martian Salvage, and Automatic Ballast Ejection System were included.  I really like how the final product turned out.  Somehow being framed as a card always seems to make the artwork look more awesome.

Looks like the game did quite well, as the initial batch of special edition copies was sold out, according to their Facebook page.  This means that they'll start thinking about mass distribution, and that might mean I get to make some more work for them!  In the meantime, check out some of the art I made for the game, and keep an eye out for Rocket Race! at your nearest games store.
