Defend Neo Tokyo Kickstarter – On hold for now

We have decided that the way for us to create the best possible version of Defend Neo Tokyo is to cancel our current funding campaign. We’ve gained a considerable amount of insight from this experience and will be using this knowledge to restructure our campaign and relaunch early next year.

Thanks again to everyone and you’ll see us back up real soon!

How To Serve Man T-Shirts Now Available!

There comes a time in the life of every young game company when thoughts turn to promotional merch. To that end, Gateway Games is proud to announce fancy How To Serve Man t-shirts!

How To Serve Man Shirt

We don’t have a model but it does look pretty sweet haphazardly folded on a table.

Let’s face it: Polite society demands people wear clothing most of the time. So if you’re going to wear a shirt, why not wear one that declares your love for the galaxy’s favorite cooking competition? Make perfect sense to us, anyway. Besides, these 100% high-quality black cotton tees feature a road map to the tastiest bits of people, er, meeples. The only way this shirt could be any better is if it came in Women’s AND Men’s sizes, and guess what? WE’VE GOT BOTH.

Supplies are very limited, so if you want to make sure you’ve got one of these shirts for your next BBQ, you’ll need to jump on that quick. We’re not sure when we’ll get another run printed, but it won’t be for a long while.

Pop on over to our shop and grab a How To Serve Man shirt while supplies last. Who knows? If these do well, maybe we’ll branch out into Gateway Games aprons? Socks? UnderpOKAY okay, just the shirts for now, geez.

HOW TO SERVE MAN now available for Preorder!

Great news, everyone! you can now secure your copy of everyone’s favorite Cosmic Cooking Competition board game, HOW TO SERVE MAN! We are taking pre-orders for the game over on our shop page.
This is no skimpy starter edition, either. This is the KICKstarter Edition with all the stretch goal awards you’ve unlocked: the B.E.T.H. judges, the Galactic Garnishes, the Valentine’s Day Promos, all that stuff. Once these are gone, however, they’re gone. The next run will be for the basic version, and the extras will be rolled into expansions that will be sold separately.
Order before January 15th and your game will ship alongside the Kickstarter rewards, directly from our fulfillment centers.

HOW TO SERVE MAN – October 2015

The dust has settled and the Kickstarter campaign was a huge success. We raised over $30,000 from more than 900 backers to fund our very first project “How To Serve Man”.
Come October 2015, you’ll have the chance to compete in the Cosmic Cooking Competition and serve up some delectable Human morsels of your own.
Head over to the Product page in our store if you want to Preorder the game, and have it shipped to you as soon as it is released.

HOW TO SERVE MAN Funded and looking to get BIGGER!

We’re now in our final week of the HOW TO SERVE MAN Kickstarter Campaign. We hit our funding goal of $20,000 and now are looking to unlock some more stretch goals!
Each stretch goal unlocked means more stuff in the box! More Judges, More Recipes, More Components!
Keep spreading the word! Every unlocked stretch goal makes your game better.
