UPDATE: Bowls of the Oith UNLOCKED!!!! Cyclopean Muck Duck UNLOCKED!! Expansion Deck #2 unlocked! CREMEFILLIAN ...OF THE DANGED UNLOCKED!! MILF PROMO CARD UNLOCKED! FUNDED on the first day! You guys are awesome. Let's see if we can unlock more decks and promo cards. Also, check out the Deluxe Dementalism Denizen Design Dispute and nab a chance to have your character made into a Dementalism card!

This heap is playing Low Life because I didn't have time to draw a picture of a bunch of guys playing Dementalism. Please use your imagination.
This heap is playing Low Life because I didn't have time to draw a picture of a bunch of guys playing Dementalism. Please use your imagination.

Dementalism is an absurdly fun card game that pits rival dementalists against one another in a race to collect a horde of aimlessly-wandering clones. It takes place in the world of Andy Hopp's award-winning Low Life RPG (but you don't need to know anything about Low Life to enjoy Dementalism). The core game was successfully funded last year thanks to the generosity and support of a bunch of awesome Kickstarter backers and will be released through retail distribution this fall. We've already sold over a thousand copies and the game hasn't even technically been released yet! Woo hoo! The inquisitive among you might be interested in this link to the rulebook.

Sample Dementalism cards: a Denizen, a Giggity, and a Turmoil Card.
Sample Dementalism cards: a Denizen, a Giggity, and a Turmoil Card.

The goal of this campaign is to produce several expansions and enhancements to the Dementalism game. The expansion sets can be played on their own or combined with the core deck to create an enriched, weapons-grade Dementalism experience. Each deck includes an assortment of new Denizen, Giggity, and Turmoil cards. Furthermore, each expansion introduces a brand new card type to the game (Beasts, Holy Rollers, Digs, etc...). This is all very exciting!

We're also offering a number of exclusive promotional cards that will only be available to backers of this Kickstarter campaign, as well as some sweet, sweet Dementalism related goodies a peep can nab to enhance his or her life-living experience.

 Expansion 01: The Garden of Smellemental Glee

Funded at: $2500

You’re in some serious trouble! Those clones you let escape from the Primordial Soup Kitchen a while back have made it all the way to the Garden of Smellemental Glee. You better nab them before things get out of hand. Or more out of hand, as the case may be, or, apparently, is. Oh, and watch out for hungry beasts and whatnot while you’re out there. You'll need every modicum of brainularity you own to make it through this fast-paced and exciting expansion to the Dementalism card game, not to mention a shlode of luck and a few yorts of good old-fashioned courage. Also, an unspecified amount of gumption.

Beasts!
Beasts!

Expansion 01 brings Beast cards to the Dementalism game. They're really snazzy. When you flip a Beast Card you get to hold onto it and decide when to use it (right away or at any other point in the game). Once you use it it gets hurled into the Keister.

 Expansion 02: Holy Crap

Funded at: $4500

Suffering socks! Even more clones have escaped from the Primordial Soup Kitchen (thanks to your lackluster idiocy) and it's up to you to nab them back before the bosses feed you to something unspeakable. This time hordes of beasts and a bunch of holy rollers have joined the search, some of whom might occasionally do something helpful (but probably not).

It’ll take every wiggly grey thing in your noggin to make it through this super fun expansion to the Dementalism card game, not to mention a mess of luck, a dose and a half of gumption, and an unspecified amount of divine intervention.

Holy Rollers!
Holy Rollers!

Along with a bunch of new Denizens, Giggities, Turmoil Cards, and Beasts, Expansion 02 plops a bunch of Holy Roller cards into the mix. These guys will attempt to intercede with the Gawds on your behalf. Sometimes it works and the Gawds do you a solid. Sometimes it doesn't and you get snubbed.

Expansion 03: Flop, Slop, and Sop

Funded at: $8500

This third expansion sets the stage with awesome new Digs cards. These things are locales and settings that alter the rules or instill some sort of atmospheric condition that lasts until another Digs card is flipped. These are very exciting times in which we live...

Digs!
Digs!

For roughly every 1000 clams (beginning at $3000) raised by this campaign I will introduce a new limited edition promotional Dementalism card. These cards will be given FOR FREE to everyone who backs for at least $25. I'll reveal the next promo card once the one before it is met.

Here's a bunch of exciting stuff you can add-on to your order to make your face more smiley. Some of it will be unlocked when we hit certain funding levels, but most of it's available right now! You can get any of these things by adding the listed amount to your pledge and sending me a message in Kickstarter to let me know what to send you.

Dementalism

Here's the original Dementalism card game core set. It includes 128 cards, a rulebook, a sticker, an art card, and some other snazzy jazz. You can learn how to play right here.

Price: $20 (UNLOCKED!)

Limited Edition Lumbering Shlump Miniature

An extremely limited number (30) of these immense resin Low Life miniatures will be offered here. These guys are really big (over 8" high) and no more than 50 will ever be made available for purchase. It also includes a Lumbering Shlump Dementalism card.

Bonus: He's already done so you won't have to wait for him to be sculpted!

Lumbering Shlump Dementalism Card

This limited edition Dementalism Beast card, available only through this Kickstarter, can be nabbed for an extra five clams. It's included free with the Lumbering Shlump miniature.

Price: $5 (UNLOCKED!)

Dementalism Deck Box

This high-quality polished wood box is engraved with the Dementalism logo and everybody's favorite dementalist, Trozzgoxx the Lobe. It's big enough to hold all your Dementalism cards and any other small accessories you might want to stash.

This is just a crappy artist's representation. The real box will be much cooler.

 Trozzgoxx the Lobe Plushie

Hand-crafted by official Mutha Oith Creations executive henchperson Krystal Tomlinson, this extra-cuddly felt plushie is perfect for all your mindgoosing, butterfly catching, and snuggling needs. It's part of The Lowlies, a new line of Low Life themed plush toys.

Dementalism Vinyl Playmat

This 24"x28" vinyl playmat is double-sided and makes for a perfect surface upon which to play your games of Dementalism. One side features a 6x6 grid that makes it really easy to set up your game and the other side shows off all of the card images from the Dementalism core deck.

Price: $40 (UNLOCKED!)

Trozzgoxx Miniature

Part of the Low Life Miniatures line of 28mm miniatures, Trozzgoxx gets around. He's sculpted by Jason Wiebe based on a drawing by Andy Hopp.

Price: $10 (UNLOCKED!)

The Oithlings are the Mutha Oith Creations awesome squad. Members (it's free!) earn clams by helping me spread the word about Low Life, Dementalism, and other MOC jazz. Clams can be used to earn badges, special rewards (custom dice, challenge coins, shirts, etc...), and discounts in the MOC online store. Here's some more information.

As a special promotion during this Kickstarter, any Oithlings (even ones who sign up right now) who back the project will earn clams equal to half the dollar value of their pledge. Pretty cool, yes no? Also, something very cool will happen to all of the Oithlings if we meet the goal by the end of the second day. Something very cool indeed...

I'll be making regular updates along the way, adding more rewards and add-ons as the opportunity arises. Thank you very much for your interest. I love you all.

Risks and challenges

Barring catastrophe, I don't foresee any major challenges at the moment. The artwork and card design is already completed for most of the cards and expansions, as are the box designs and the distribution chain (Studio 2). Krystal is busting buns on the Lowlies, although some of the other peripherals and add-ons still need to be made.

The major hurdles at this point involve organizing the backers and getting things printed and ready for shipping. We have experience with that sort of thing from past kickstarters (we've learned a lot!) and I'm confident any bumps in the road can be ironed out without much difficulty (although the first bump might be figuring out what kind of iron works on a road).
