What’s Odd Bird up to in 2023?
Hot Game Magnet talks to Odd Bird
April 11, 2023 | Hot Game Magnet podcast hosted by Justin Crooks
Feudum by Mark Swanson is one of my all-time favorite games, but after five expansions fans of the game are hungry for something new from its creator. I had the opportunity to speak with Mark about the future of his company Odd Bird Games and he had some exciting news.
He has been teasing in social media that a new game will be coming out, but in fact he has a total of three brand new games in the works that will be crowdfunding in 2023 and 2024. Mark had a lot to say about these new games, called FIR, FLED, and an as yet unnamed CCG.
If you’re a fan of Feudum then this is a must listen episode, but to be honest after listening to this episode you will probably be a fan of everything Odd Bird Games has to offer.
