The Gourd of the Beans: An Unplanned Adventure
On Middle-teen-earth, a small hoddit is about to embark on a dangerous and hazardous quest. You are Frobo Baddins, an abused charity case and alleged village idiot who has been assigned an apparently simple quest, to make the preparations for Uncle Bildo's birthday party. But, from an apparently inauspicious beginning, an unplanned adventure is about to begin.

At long last, my Gourd of the Beans project is ready for release. I recruited help from two of my brothers who made significant contributions to the game. It has been a labor of love and I have particularly enjoyed the artwork that I made for the game. After all the work, however, we began to wonder if there is still a large enough audience that enjoys these retro games to continue our development. As such we started a Kickstarter campaign to gauge that interest. We would love to continue development and have already completed a significant portion of the 'next' game as well as flushed out most of the planned storyline.
If you believe that we have a worthy goal, please consider contributing to our cause. I would ask that you please share our game with your friends that might have interest in it. Further, please do not upload the game to other sites until after the Kickstarter campaign has concluded (in about a month) so that interested individuals will be directed to our website and will have become acquainted with our campaign.
