About

 

 

Yellorg aggression is matched only by Bluzark’s smug confidence – And there can only be one spacerace left standing. Choose a side & your fleet to command a triumphant victory. Last Mothership standing wins. Protect her at all costs with your 3 Fighters & your choice of 2 Special Fighters. But don’t underestimate your Mothership, for ACTIVATING her EMP can wreak havoc in all directions.

 SPACEFIGHTER is a grid based, combat game with elements of chance & strategy. Accessible, with 2-Player games lasting between 30-45 mins. Roll 3 Action dice per turn to decide your combination of Move, Attack, or Draw. The leftover D6 is the Distance Roll which determines how far your ships travel with each movement.

GAMECARDS may lead to ship upgrades to Attack Power, Attack Range, Shield or Movement; immediate swings in board state; or the cherished “ACTIVATE SPECIAL” card – Used for overpowered maneuvers like Phase Shift (Ghost) or Railgun (Heavyfighter)

Different Ships have different Attack Power, Attack Range, & Shield. Start with your Mothership & 3 Fighters, then chose a combination of 2 more ships from your ever expanding pool of Special Fighters. Evade or Advance. Attack or Retreat. Obtain victory by SPACEMURDER-ing the enemy Mothership!

Before we meet the other ships, we’d thought we would work on our relationship – Is this a safe space? Jacob & I (Cory) have been working on SPACEFIGHTER for a little over 6 months. The idea spawned from a dream I had, in which I was fed up as a wholesale scarf distributor for big box stores… As I perused one of my customer’s stores, frustrated with the monotony of neck warming, I stumbled upon the Board game section -Illuminated like the Arc of the Covenant.  

When I woke up, I started tossing & turning, battling the snooze button. Whilst in & out of semi lucid dreaming, I developed the basic game mechanics & woke up to the word “SPACEFIGHTER”. After pitching my idea to Jacob, my best friend & competent engineer, we dove into game play. Our obsession has been on game play & then aesthetic. We have play-tested to a point of balance, with the right combination of chance, strategy, & replay value. Then Jacob crammed some Photoshop tutorials to generate all original artwork on the dice & printed content. The playmat is a grid over-layed on the Bubble Nebula, a majestic image courtesy of the Hubble Telescope. (Thanks NASA!)

    

Jacob & I are medium to avid gamers. Our desire was to create a fast-paced game that was simple enough to be accessible to our non-gaming friends, but offer enough strategy & replay value to appeal to the better geek in us all. We are looking to raise $35,000 so we can procure the plastic injection molds & pay for the minimum production runs required to build the SPACEFIGHTER core set & expansions. We have many other ideas in mind for the future: Space Junk (Artifacts & Asteroids), Inter-dimensional Capture the Flag, 4-Player, & a whole lot more space ships!

Risks and challenges

We are working with a supply chain that is very experienced with the production and manufacturing of the various components. However, there is always the possibility of delays in any project, including Manufacturing or Shipping Delays. Our goal is to ship in time for Christmas, but machining plastic injection molds can sometimes take a long time. If we are 100% funded early, we will front the money to get production rolling ahead of schedule to make sure we can deliver on time.
