Hello dear Backers,

Summer holidays are ending and like every month, I come to keep you informed of Color Quest progress and development.

Planning

This month of august was partly under the sign of printing of season 1 game elements and season 2 development with an advanced on character design and development of the next Kickstarter campaign teaser with ID2SON studio.

Note that we took a few holidays so the content of this logbook will be a little shorter than usual.

Surveys

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

Carving

Christophe is currently finalizing "domesticated" version of the Koloss :

Carving of mounted Chief (delivered with this miniature) is also progressing. Pictures should be available in the next logbook.

Carving of the "savage" version will begin at the end of September.

Note: this is a provisional schedule. In case of delayed delivery of this miniature, we will take this second delivery to our charge.

Illustrations

Kevin is currently working on Season 2 characters.

 Graphisms (general)

Following your advices (Facebook and Twitter surveys), the Color Quest logo has undergone a little evolution with the addition of colors: golem in blue (recall of the Color Warz logo), Kadamas in orange (recall of the FLUO Craft logo) and paint puddle in green (recall of the Kickstarter logo).

We are also considering integrating a new Illustrator / Character Designer to strengthen the team for the development of Season 3.

As you can see, since the elements have been sent in print, there will not be much more news about season 1 illustrations. The bulk of the graphic work is now on season 2 development (and other).

Gameplay

Game testing continues their progress and the game stabilizes.

I am currently working on a handicap system ("Heroes" square on Kadamas dices boards) to balance forces.

There are still some adjustments in game turn progress (best moment to use Kadamas dices) and some finishing setting on the special abilities of few characters. The addition of "passive" abilities such as the "avoid" rule has limited spamming on heroes.

Note: A downloadable version of the game rules should be available in the next logbook.

Manufacturing

Game elements (box, boards parts, cards, tiles and game aids) were sent to the print worker. We should receive them in a few days.

The next "big thing" will be the drafting of game rules that will be sent to print worker in end of september.

Late Pledge

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

      @Biomage, thank you for your comment ! Regarding Paint Brawl, that will depend of characters abilities (not black paint puddles given in the game) but that's a good idea. I will think about that, for sure !

      The illustration of the Spartan is great!

      Will there be Paint Brawl rules for the new characters?
