UPDATES! See end of post!
February is coming, and February means ZineQuest. Or does it?
It seems there we'll be no ZineQuest this year:
Anya is Anya Combs, director of games at Kickstarter, so we can assume she knows what she's saying. Let's take a closer look:
"Officially", yeah, but all we have for now is Sam saying Anya said... That's not my definition of "official". If anything, this proves that KS doesn't care much about ZQ anyway.
Note the specifics: it is not happening in February... which leaves the door open for another time frame.
Other sources say ZineQuest 4 might still be a thing, but in August:
Even before that, Pinnacle Entertainment (a veteran on Kickstarter) has experimented with other platforms (East Texas University on GameFound), and even on their own platform with the Super Powers Companion for Savage Worlds.
I've made this post to collect the info I've found so far, and to help other creators (small, big, aspiring!) to figure out what's going on. If I've missed some important piece of info, drop it in the comments!
ZINEQUEST 4 IS COMING AUGUST 2022
