Big Pharma: Marketing and Malpractice is officially out.
I’ve been working on this expansion full time since the start of the year and it has been an interesting challenge and learning experience for me.
Accuse me of arrogance if you will, but I was actually surprised how challenging it has been to design my first ever expansion for a game. It requires a different design philosophy to designing a game from scratch as you are more restricted as to what you can take out, because you don’t want to disrupt the “magic” of the original game.
Coming up with a neat little package of extra features that maintain balance with the existing design while offering something new and exciting is no mean feat. It was touch and go in around February but now I can say with confidence that I’m proud of what I have achieved with M&M and I believe it is a good expansion, worthy of your consideration if you happened to enjoy the original game.
To avoid showing favouritism I’m going to include a link to the buy page on the official website which, while not being the prettiest piece of web design in history, does have the advantage of listing all of the store fronts where you can purchase the expansion. Buy the expansion.
If you already own the base game, it is recommended that you buy the expansion from the same place as the original game to ensure compatibility. The expansion is available in English, French, German and Spanish. Unfortunately we are still waiting on the Polish translation but rest assured, it is on its way!
