    Hello! My name is Hubert Spala and I represent a UK/Polish company, Rombo Games. We found your website and your mail leading us into believing, that you might just help us with the feedback on the project we are working on! 😉

    I will tell you a little bit more about Publish or Perish:

    This is a game in ongoing development process at the moment, however on our webpage you can see more about how the game is going to look and feel. It is a family board game with mobile app (hybrid game) designed for 2-6 players from 8 years old up. It is simple enough for kids to grasp it but offers enough competitive challenge for adults as well.

    Publish or Perish is a deduction game where you have to discover the secret properties of the subatomic particles (called hypersymmetry). In order to do so you have to clash particles against each other in the collider and observe the results. After few smart experiments you will be able to deduct the secret properties of some of the particles and trying to build a solid publication paper that will give you a lot of points.

    This is an example of deduction: Assuming that the secret property of particle 13 has been discovered and it is circle, if a player experiments with particle 13 and 7 and the result is circle and square, the player can deduct and publish that particle 7 has square as secret property. Of course, this is the simplest case of deduction because particles have charges (positive or negative) and belong to different groups (leptons and quarks) and all this need to be taken in consideration when experimenting and publishing.

    Long story short, we capture the essence of the publish or perish motto. As a scientist you need to struggle with the decision of continuing your research and risk that other person will be faster than you or publish your findings to be safe but waste the opportunity of more discoveries.

    I hope you find it interesting enough, It would be great to hear your questions and your feedback about the concept. The webpage will be updated regularly with the progress of the game. 🙂

    Best Regards!
