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.

Episode 3: Kickstarter Chicken

Ferrel Wears PlateWelcome to another episode of MMO Radio! If the third time is a charm then prepare to lose your pants, for here is episode three. This week we talk about Kickstarter, the good, the bad, and the tantalizing. Specifically, the games: table top, video, and beyond. Later in the show we explore developer’s over-promising ways and why players generally don’t care. Adam recounts his latest experiences running a DnD 4E campaign and how it’s never as simple as coming up with “a couple of names.” Silly Adam… this is Dungeons and Dragons! Nothing is simple.

    A really interesting talk about Kickstarter — written by a successful campaign about a local nanobrewery in Buffalo. You may find it interesting!
