A fan-created family-friendly version of Scythe gets an official stamp of approval by the publisher, as well as a full publication!
My Little Scythe is a full re-imagining of Scythe from the ground up with a focus on family-friendly content. On May2nd, Stonemaier Games released this video preview of the upcoming game, and it looks adorable.
The goal of My Little Scythe is simple, be the first to win 4 trophies from the 8 possible categories. Unlike its predecessor, in My Little Scythe, players are trying to gain friendships, make and deliver pies and maybe have a friendly pie fight or two along the way.
My Little Scythe is extremely accessible for children but the simple mechanics and playful art style are a great draw for anyone.
My Little Scythe actually began as a fan-created Print n’ Play game which caught the eye of Stonemaier Games who decided to make the game a reality! The original site for the print n’ play version is now mostly just to redirect to the official announcement page (with a delighted note from the designer). It’s great when game companies are welcoming of their fans who take their creations and make them their own.
