Welcome to the Rise
of the Rock
Star Kickstarter project website This was the page for the failed
Kickstarter: Rise of the Rock Star.
We gave it our best shot at success
and created a game that we felt played
well and had lots of
replay value. We throughly researched the production
some smash-up excellent prep work but alas... We hope to try
project again in the not too distant future. We hope you
will join us.
PS. If you are making a Kickstarter of your
own, we encourage you to look
through the month of blog posts
for helpful tips.
What is Rise
Of The Rock
the Rock Star is a board
game ATW Productions is developing. In order to get this game out to
the masses we are running a Kickstarter Project to fund the
production of the game.
What this Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a website where you
can promote your artistic project and attempt to obtain funding to get
it produced. It is a 'crowd-funding' based donation site. Anyone can donate money to
help us get the game produced!

Yes you can donate (at several levels, from $1 on up)
to help us out.
