Geek Dad just spotlighted a lovely looking new game, Iconica, over on their blog. The game could be great — I have no idea. What strikes me about it, what has captured my imagination, is its venue. Iconica is for sale on Etsy. I like Etsy — it’s what my wife uses to sell her handmade books — but I hadn’t seen much publishing going on there, so this was a pleasant surprise.
Frankly, I dig the idea of a handcrafted game being sold as a craft object. This one sure looks as much like an art object as a game, and I can get behind that. When I can scrape together the sixteen bucks, I think I’ll pick up Iconica. I’m always on the lookout for good two-player games to play with the missus.
