ZOE has been busy this month prepping and filming a new sketch comedy for their Patreon patrons. Ben Dobyns and Steve Wolbrecht provided some behind the scenes footage via Hang w/ which you can watch here, here, and here (note: if viewed on a desktop, the videos are rotated 90 degrees). Patreon patrons also received a backer advance screener to The Gamers Live 2015 (filmed at GenCon). If you've not backed at even a $1/mo you should -- the first 10 minutes alone are worth it.

Dead Gentlemen Productions

Dead.FM Episode 15 released on Aug 17th which features a story of Don paying way too much for beer. DG has been working on the Demon Hunters RPG as well as brainstorming ideas on what to do with the Brotherhood Membership Cards. Don also announced that he "wrote the first ever checks to the Dorkness Rising investors. More than 11 years they've been waiting. This feels really good." This comes from the copious work they've done over that time as well as their successful blu-ray re-release.
