ZynVaded! was created by John Vogel, cofounder of We Have Issues! Publishing (WHIP!). To help get the game fully realized, John initially enlisted the help of WHIP! cofounder Justin Nyland. Justin built off of the foundation he was given, refining the rough draft given to him. Together, they sat and hammered out the details of the game for days. The days turned into weeks, and the weeks grew into months.
John sketched and sculpted while Justin wrote and edited. Whenever either one would get stuck, or come up with “questionable” ideas (which does, in fact, happen from time to time), they would enlist their closest friends to help work it out. Many afternoons were spent sitting around, reading and play-testing the game while batting ideas back and forth. From these helpful sessions, new and better ideas emerged, making ZynVaded! the game it is today.
There is no stopping it now… the ZynVasion has begun...
As we progress into the new year, the ZynVaded! brand will continue to grow, as more and more ideas are brought to life. In the coming year you’ll see new items, such as:1. The full first wave of the Zyn, 18 models in total (9 for each side)
As you can see, we here at WHIP! have a lot of ideas that are just itching to get released. And we’re pumping them out as fast as we can. Play testing and model creation is being done as quickly as possible, and as time allows. This is where everyone comes into play. All of us here at WHIP! want to hear your House Rulez, see your pictures of Battlefieldz and hear your thoughts on what you’d like to see for new Modelz! Even though we go over the rules so many times that our eyes cross and brains throb, we know we occasionally miss something. Plus, outside opinions are always a great way to recharge the thinking possess. As we go through House Rulez that get submitted, and have a chance to play them, we may add them into the core rules in future releases! We Have Issues! Publishing is an ever growing company, and ZynVaded! will never stop growing.
