Dear backers,

Today, we would like to share with you another complete element - first player token.

 We hope you like it, because we do :).

Right now, authors of the game are working on instructions (both english and polish versions).

We will keep you informed on the progress.

Best regards,

Games Factory

Hello,

Today we have an anouncement, which is longer than usual. We will try to make it as much specific as it can to describe what happened lately. Also, we will try to describe upcoming changes in Games Factory and answer the question „what now?”.

The truth is that aprroximitely 2 months ago we encountered a very difficult situation – we were very close to bancrupcy. Problems with cash-flow in our Polish activities, along with ongoing production problems in our other projects, impacted us very seriously.

Past months were difficult, but we did not surrender. After many sleepless nights and lots of work, we finally can try to calm you down. The financial situation of Games Factory is coming back to normal. All projects that we were working on, are still ongoing, and will definitely come to you. It is not only about Solar City and Board Game Creative Kit, but also our Polish crowdfunding campaigns.

And what about us now? We are definitely leaving domestic crowdfunding, but we are not leaving Kickstarter. We are currently working on finishing actual projects, and after that, in further future, we plan to get back on Kickstarter with new, exciting projects.

As a part of our convalescence plan, we started a cooperation with the Ateneum company - the biggest polish distributor of books, board games and toys. They are winners of many prestigious business prizes, such as the Diamond of Forbes (2018). Having them at our back is helping us getting back on feet.

What about Solar City? The game will come up in the first quarter of 2019. At this moment we have completed: 1. Plastic inserts for the base game and expansions. 2. Cards in both languages for the base game and expansions. 3. First player tokens – they are currently produced. 4. We ordered plastic tokens.

The redaction of instruction is currently ongoing for both languages. After it will be finished we will start to plan the production of cardbox elements (boxes, tiles, boards etc.).

From this moment on, you will get updates not less than once every 2 weeks.

Also – we will NOT attend Essen Spiel this year. All copies ordered with the „Essen Pickup” will be delivered at our cost.

Thank you for your patience, Games Factory
