Privateer embodied what I feel was the best of what was emerging as a genre in video games - self-guided experiences with the freedom to adventure through your own story. The boardgame we are developing is inspired by that sense of adventure and open-ended story.
If you are familiar with the Vassal Engine, that would be a benefit, though it is not required. Our playtest group is setup on Facebook. As a need, I am looking for more artwork of pilots from the Privateer/Wing Commander world to be used as characters in the game.
