Hello dear Backers,
Like every month, I come to keep you informed of Color Quest progress and development.
This month of July has been placed under the sign of prototyping and game testing.
We had also started printing and received most of miniatures and games elements.
First of all, I still miss half of your surveys. I remind you that they are necessary to retrieve delivery informations (among other informations).
So, thank you to download this survey and to send it back to me at the following address : fluocraft[at]gmail.com
Christophe continues his progression and his carving work on Koloss miniature and he is progressing well. He finalizes the placement of masses and will pass very soon to details.
At the same time, we are finalizing season 2 sculpture schedule with various sculptors.
Kevin has finalized game tiles illustrations :
And Mariana completed the coloring:
Kevin is currently working on Character design of Season 2 (and Season 3) and Mariana continues her work on Season 2 cover illustration.
First of all, game tests has begun and are encouraging for the future. Kadamas dices bring a real interest to the gameplay because you will have to collect them on the board map and choose how to use them. You will have several possibilities: place them on the "Instant" section of your Dices board to trigger the corresponding action whenever you want (see Paint Brawl bonus cards), or in the "Gauge" section to trigger different actions: special abilities (1 Dice) , Blasts (2 Dices) or Transformations of your hero (3 Dices) during the corresponding game turn.
Last thing about it, Kadamas dices will also be used to reproduce effects of items cards if you use the right combination of colors (indicated on the card).
Note: Kadamas Dices boards (to place your dice) are not listed in the material but will be provided with your copy of the game.
Condition of victory: for the moment, the victory condition is quite simple. Your Hero must have passed level 2 AND you must knock out the opponent Hero in the same turn.
Note: A Stunned Hero returns to the previous level. If he is level 1, he is knocked out.
At this development step, the Kaos camp (black) is still a little disadvantaged compared to Gaia's camp (colors). We are working on that point. Therefore, bulk of the work is to set profiles of each of the 26 playable characters of season 1.
Color Quest miniatures have arrived from manufacturer ! Clara and Frank from GRX Créations have done a remarkable work on it and I should spend some days on conditioning them !
Dedicated illustrations for stretch goal n°1 have been sent to print worker and have been received (under epic conditions, I will have enough to say to make a ticket on it ^^).
Without me, I was required to take pictures ^^
Printing of game elements (box, boards parts, cards, tiles and game aids) which was scheduled for middle of July took a little delay. It still remain a few graphical settings (most of which depend of game testing) to set to reach the desired quality. Printing files will be sent to print worker next week. This will not affect delivery, scheduled for early september.
So it remains some work on these elements. The next "big thing" will be the drafting of game rules that will be sent to print worker in mid-september.
New tokens (stands and puddles) were also received from manufacturer.
So miniatures (excepted Koloss), dices and tokens has been received.
In order to raise more funds for the development of season 2, I propose 10 "All-in" bundles until september.
There is no way to customize these limited pledges. They are composed of the following elements : Color Quest game set + Khromaz add-on + Girlz Blast add-on + 2 Koloss for 269€ (one free Koloss included), shipping cost included.
Payment will be made by Paypal.
The price is the same than during the campaign and quantities will be limited to 10 bundles that corresponds to Early Birds not taken during the campaign. Of course, these bundles will include Stretch Goals.
Important : shipping for these late pledges are scheduled for november (not october).
If you are interested by one of these late pledge, you can send me an email at the following address : fluocraft[at]gmail.com
Do not hesitate to join us on the social networks to follow our news:
What do we know about Color Quest season 2 ?
- new game elements (cards and tiles) will be available
- it will introduce a new caste : the "Dark" Kromaz
- It will take place between November 2017 and February 2018 (depending on late pledges success)
- Backers from season 1 that will join season 2 will receive an exclusive miniature for free with their season 2 parcel
- Valentin Zak will sculpt at least two models for this new season
- Ronin camp will receive massive reinforts
Management of production is progressing well and will soon comes to the end. Most of the time available is now spent on game testing, game rules and to season 2 development (content, illustrations, video, etc.). It remains many work to be done for the next two months but we are on time.
