ok so I was on another forum and some one really wanted to see my original sketches ... not sure if they were a big fan or they thought my work wasn't original ... LOL well either way it prompted me to make this collage of my original sketch work and some of the wips as well as some finished stuff ( though none of these includes the vehicles and buildings and will be included in the game. Hopefully this would put originality to rest ( if that was it LOL ) when I was done I couldn't help but think ... dang I've done a lot of work on this! and it's not even showcasing the rule book with all stuff that's in it.... Hopfully when it's done it will all be worth it! well here they are the sketch pages of Temporum Oblitis !
Well ... what do you think

I like it all. I hope it finds its market. Don't take this the wrong way; but the comic-book esthetic makes me think this could be really popular with the 10 to 15 crowd, which I think is how "Magic the Gathering" and "Pirates of the Spanish Main" made all their money. I think if the rules (and the product) is accessible to that crowd, you might have a shot at real success.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

I thought I posted a reply yesterday but I guess I surfed away before it posted. I only wanted to say that my own business experience would suggest that what I think is a good idea is not necessarily a money maker. But I can't be wrong ALL the time!

Hey Thanks for the advice cowboyleland! in my previous experience as a graphic designer for a marketing company I learned a few things this might help you in the future ( might not ) 1. All successful business is 10% product/ service and 90% advertising 2. marketing research is worth it's weight in gold. 3. All entertainment markets have to create the need for their product it doesn't exist intrinsically. ( however your target market responds to your advertising ) 4. Professor Harold hill was the master! www.youtube.com/watch?v=s60hOgqLFGg
after doing some research ( though not as much as I'm going to do ) I have found that the group I need to be looking at is late high school to early college. 15 to 25 year olds these are the kids who have extra money and time ( though be it not much ) they (most of them) still live at home but have jobs that pay them a pittance but they have limited overhead. before 15 they don't have a job and are relying on mom and dad. Mom and Dad don't have lots of free money, they have tons of overhead and extremely limited free time. After 25 they become mom's and dad's sooo the window is small and I am looking to narrow it even further. there are certain places like BYU Idaho where the kids are stuck indoors with nothing to do for 3 months ... fish in a barrel. there's lots of ways of advertising to them and other groups like them the key is finding it. that's why companies spend BILLIONS on advertising research every year. ... so I think the trouble you have had in the past is obviously not your product ( TOP NOTCH!!) it's probably your advertising and marketing that failed you as it had soooo many others ( myself included ) I used to run a printing company .... used to being the most notable point in that statement. Lack of market research killed me.
pavaro i'm making a tutorial just because you asked ... should be done later today!
Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
