Out of the Pan: A Power Outage Adventure


Hi,  Bebarce here.  I just wanted to post an important update regarding Power Outage.  I am in the firm belief that there shouldn't be barriers for kids to experience the joy of games.  From March 15th until yesterday (April 14th) I had made Power Outage available for free.  I am now returning the price to $4.  HOWEVER, as mentioned below if you are an organization that could use Power Outage to support children reach out to me and I'll get you a copy for free or at cost.  The new addition is that if you are currently experiencing financial restraints and are looking to game with kids or just need it for other reasons.  Reach out to me, and I'll get you a copy.

You can reach me at bebarce (at) gonerdy dot com or via twitter (at) bebarce

Let's all be heroes together. 

If you run a school, library, hospital, a charitable, or social program that supports children but are hard-pressed on funding, reach out to me on twitter (at) bebarce and I will work with you to get you a copy(or copies) for free or at print/ship costs.  I will also reach out on your behalf to companies that produce or sell accessories.

Reviews, and Interviews!

“For many of us parents, the Holy Grail of game design is the child-friendly RPG. With Power Outage, Bebarce El-Tayib has launched a well-equipped expedition upon that sacred quest, which demonstrates that his love of gaming is only matched by his love of children. But it’s left for you, the players, to imagine how it will end!” - Jason Walters, Indie Press Revolution

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
