Nintendo Switch Macro Controller and Animal Crossing New Horizons

Regular readers of my blog will know I’m a massive Nintendo fan (hence some of the references hidden in Mothership). Regular readers will also know that I haven’t posted in a bit and, well, that’s because I’ve been playing Animal Crossing on the Switch…don’t worry I’ll be posting new Mothership info real soon!

In the meantime, I just had to post about this easy little trick that I found which will hopefully make you some easy bells and also save your hands from a little repetitive strain disorder.

Big Pre-production update + Manufacturer spotlight

Manufacturer Spotlight

The 1st Edition of Mothership was handled by a company named WinGo who are known for a few Kickstarter games. They were great to work with and the minis were fantastic, but quality issues with some of the printed materials and increasing costs made us look else where for a new factory.

They were kind enough to send us a sample (ie a full game!) to show us the quality of their work. They sent Bunny Kingdom which they produced (published by Iello) and we were very impressed. 

So far their communication and diligence in getting the quotes correct and working with the massive list of extras and SKU’s has been excellent.
