• Hey!

    Do you like card games? What about cute dragons like me? You should check out Havok & Hijinks!


  • About Us

    Epic Slant Press is a small publishing company based in North Carolina that currently focuses on books and games. Positivity is the driving force that guides each and every project that the company takes on. The team strongly believes that with a positive outlook anyone can achieve great things. Epic Slant Press strives to support small and local businesses, aid fellow entrepreneurs, and donate a portion of all profits to charities and good causes.

    Why Positivity?

    Think of a time when you went back to a store or restaurant and an employee there remembered your name. That simple act probably gave you warm feelings (and might help retain your business!). How about a day when all of your customers were angry or just apathetic, and then you had that one customer that was cheerful and grateful for your help? Positive encounters like these make lasting impressions and it is our mission to better serve the community by creating as many of them as possible.

  • Havok & Hijinks Lessons Learned

    Havok and Hijinks Amber DragonI’m a big fan of transparency and educating. In my mind knowledge is not a resource to be hoarded. It should be shared with everyone so that others can hopefully learn and avoid similar mistakes. As such, I wanted to sit down and discuss everything I can think of about the process through which Havok & Hijinks became a reality. We’ve learned a lot and it will be far easier the next time around. It is also my hope that you can learn something from this.

    Disclaimer: This article ONLY captures what I felt we did WRONG. That may give the impression that this whole thing was a train wreck. It actually wasn’t. It is just easier to focus on the smaller column (things done wrong) than the larger one (things done right) first. I’ll do a “things we did right” column later.

    Havok & Hijinks Is Now Shipping

    Havok and Hijinks Amber DragonIt has been a long time coming but I am pleased to announce that Epic Slant Press is now shipping its debut card game Havok & Hijinks.

    Havok & Hijinks enjoyed a successful Kickstarter in 2013 and has been in production since. Starting in June orders have been filled for the backers of that project. Now that those are arriving it is time for the game to move to general sales.

    Starting in August you’ll be able to purchase Havok & Hijinks from our distributor Game Salute. They are currently taking preorders.

    We’re also pleased to announce accessories for the game that will be available from both Epic Slant Press and our partners. Feel free to check them out!

    Thank you all for helping make our first game a big success!
