Color Warz : Dark Threat (Canceled)
Dark Threat is a new asymetrical boardgame for 2 players taking place in the Color Warz universe. Strategy black paint and white magic.
Color Warz : Dark Threat is the Color Warz : Paint Brawl sequel.
This new game stages an epic battle between the colors unified around the Chosen One to the Wooden King and his black paint.
This two players board game proposes an asymmetric gameplay: each player has different abilities and characters. The players don't have the same goals. It's a standalone game with some bridges with the previous boardgame: Paint Brawl.
Color Warz : Dark Threat in 5 key points
=> Define a Strategy to bring up the white light with the Bright Chosen One or cover the world of black paint with the Ultimate Bane.
=> Choose between your movements, attacks and special Actions to find the best way to defeat your opponent !
=> This board game is accessible for Casual Gamers
=> With different difficulty levels, additional characters and scenarios. The Core Gamers will enjoy it too !
=> Compatible with Color Warz : Paint Brawl game, it increases the game possibilities when you have both games.
=> High detailed resin miniatures range compatible with the game (see below).

Like in ouf first game, Color Warz : Paint Brawl, we develop a miniature range compatible with Color Warz : Dark Threat.
20 new models are planned for launch the campaign and some other amazing miniatures are considered depending on the success of the campaign (stretch goal).
Below, you can see the 3 firsts models
The Color Warz : Dark Threat miniatures will be sculpted by Ammon Miniatures (Da Clash!) with who we have a partnership. We already work with Valentin Zak (Ammon Miniatures owner), who has sculpted some of our miniatures : Warrior #2, Shaman #2, Ninja, Cleric and Monk.
Now you know what we have done for our first game : Color Warz : Paint Brawl.
So, imagine what we can do for Dark Threat !
Below, we had selected 5 pledges depending to the popular needs :
=> If you want to play to Color Warz : Dark Threat AND Color Warz : Paint Brawl without miniatures, the best pledge may be the "Gamer" one (£70). That gives you acces to both board games and all stretch goal game.
=> If you want to play Color Warz : Dark Threat without miniatures, the best pledge for you may be the "Bronze" (£35) or "(Early) Silver" one (£50). Depending if you want the stretch goal game or the box update only.
=> If you want to play to Color Warz : Dark Threat (only) with ALL the corresponding miniatures, you may need the "(Early) Platinium" pledge (£225).
=> If you want to play with both games (Dark Threat + Paint Brawl) with ALL the corresponding miniatures, you may need the "Miniature 4 Gaming" pledge (£460).
=> If you want to collect Color Warz miniatures (MiniZ) without playing games, the "Miniature 4 Collection" pledge may be the right choice (£290).
We hope that these precisions will help you to make the best choice.
How does it work ?
We have three stretch goal levels.
1°/ Box Updates
The box updates are evolutions of the Dark Threat game box with additional material and new game elements. This is our lower stretch goal level.
2°/ Stretch Goal Game
The Stretch Goal game will give you the same advantages PLUS other extra game elements not included in the basic Dark Threat box like new scenarios, punchboards, etc. It will also contains some Kickstarter exclusive miniatures like the Black Devil Pig or the Black Norbit. This is our medium stretch goal level.
3°/ Stretch Goal Miniature
Gold and higher pledges, will give you access to all previous stretch goals PLUS new miniatures incoming. This is our higher pledge level.
The background color show you which kind of extra pledge it is.
Color Warz is an original universe based on paint, small creatures and magic.
An antic battle opposes Kaos the God of nothingness to Gaia the Goddess of life to take control of Mana, the pure magical star.
The story takes place in a little planet called Khroma, overhung with a giant tree : The World Tree.
There, The Khromaz which are small creatures leave and grow up on Khromic tree and make fight with paint. They are six different clans : red, blue, yellow, green, orange and purple. Each clan gets his own specificity.
But in the cursed forest, a dark power is growing and a great danger approaches to enslave the Khromaz people.
Hopefully, an old master called Oak is looking for the Chosen One that will be enough powerful to counter the Dark Threat.
In Color Warz : Paint Brawl, Oak the old wise was looking for the Chosen One. The players have to fight with colors in several challenges to prove that they are the Chosen One.
In Color Warz : Dark Threat, Oak found the Chosen One and the Dark Threat has been revealed. One player plays Gaia forces with the Chosen One, Oak and his Followers. And the other plays Kaos with the Wooden King, Fongia the Mushroom Queen and their minions to unleash the Bane.

Risks and challenges
Though this is our first kickstarter adventure we at FLUO Games are all seasoned veterans of the gaming industry.
Since 2011 we have created, produced and sold one board game, Color Warz : Paint Brawl and more than 20 different resin miniatures.
For this campaign we have organized a partnership with renowned crowd funding oriented firms : Devil Pig Games for its Heroes of Normandie campaign and post-campaign management, and Ammon Miniatures for the realization and the production of all the Color Warz : Dark Threat miniatures.
All the game's elements will be printed in Germany by a company specialized in gaming material, with who we had already worked for our first board game.
Therefore, we made sure of our game quality and delivery schedule.
Concerning the delivery, the delivery term : july 2014, is defined because of the production of the resin miniatures which take a long time to be hand sculpt and produced.
At this moment all the game rules are written and well tested.
Regarding the art works, all the character design are complete.
It remains the work on the game elements :
- illustration of the game box (coming soon)
- game board elements (illustration of the game board, temples, items)
- game rules sketch
We will let you know about all the steps of the process and how it is going. So you will know exactly where we stand.
Even though bullshit could happen, be confident that at FLUO Games we will make our best to solve it quickly and definitly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
