The Bantam Philosophy

Bantam West Banner (2021)

It all started as a dream I had while deployed overseas...

Our company, Bantam Planet, is a game publisher directed by Ike Brunicardi with the support of Lead Graphic Designer David MacKenzie, Head of Marketing Max Palmer, and an Art Team made up of superb independent contractors. Based in Southern Pines, NC, and aiming to distribute worldwide, we are showcasing our first game on Kickstarter in two days: Bantam West.

Bantam West is the initial introduction to the planet Bantam: a diminutive world whose resilient inhabitants are fierce and seasoned fighters. Home to a myriad of different biomes and cultures, Bantam is brimming with cowboys and cultists, merchants and mobsters, politicians, soldiers, and even mythological beasts. With each new game in the Bantam Series, players and fans will explore new environments and territories, revealing undiscovered enemies and lore

Mission Statement

Our mission at Bantam Planet is to provide you with an unforgettable tabletop experience. We aim to create games that build rich narratives, bring joy to players, and provide challenging puzzles. Our three pillars for creation are rock-solid mechanics, an expansive theme in both breadth and depth, and gorgeous artwork. While the complexity and detail conveyed by our games might not suit everyone's interests, we strive to create an all-inclusive world. Bantam is a world wherein anyone can be a hero without regard to race, color, gender, religion, age, disability, or national origin.

Our One Ask of You

Our small and humble team has worked ourselves to the bone to make our first project a reality! We are more than willing to take comments, concerns, and criticism (as long as it is genuine and constructive haha) with one goal in mind: to make the game as great and enjoyable as it possibly can be, while sticking to my original vision and dream of Bantam West. Reach out to us at any time on any of our social media platforms or on the Kickstarter, and we will do our best to respond. If there is anything in particular that you would like to see anything in the game, let us know and we will absolutely take it into consideration! Our one ask of you is to keep in mind that we are an extremely small team, and as such, to be patient with us and our communication.

Thanks for joining us on this journey!
