Want to know more about DreadBall?
In DreadBall Xtreme, two teams battle it out on the pitch to outscore each other, with all new twists:
- No Referee = More Violence for Everyone: with no one to stop the bloodshed, anything goes! Sucker punches and stomps are the norm, and the introduction of explosive collars, deadly traps and bloodsucking aliens only increase the level of violence.
- Customize your Battlefield: games are organized in prisons and warehouses at a moment’s notice, using industrial scenery to shake things up - everywhere from the scoring zone to the ball launch location can change!
- Play as Enigmatic Sponsors: the powerful organizers behind the game, Sponsors dictate your play-style and are experts in intimidation, blackmail and illegal gambling. Best of all, Sponsors allow you to build entirely unique teams out of any player combination you like!

Risks and challenges
Delivering a Kickstarter is the hardest part of the project. We’ve successfully delivered three Kickstarters, as well as more than half of our Deadzone Kickstarter, with the remainder shipping as planned in June.
Furthermore, our fifth Kickstarter - Mars Attacks The Miniatures Game - is developing very well and will begin shipping on schedule in Q3 later this year. Check out the Kickstarter page for all of the latest updates.
Mantic has experience in sculpting, tooling and delivering Kickstarters – something that can be very difficult to get right. Models being too big to fit on tools and overspending is a challenge, but with careful management we’ve experience in handling that.
The other challenge is delays from the manufacturer – something that has meant we’ve gone down to the wire on a number of occasions with sculpting deadlines and delivery to our warehouse. We’ve deliberately added a couple of extra months to our shipping date to cater for this, meaning we can work on checking the quality of everything that comes through.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
