7 Days Until Born to Serve "Re-Lunch"
Happy New Year Heroes!
We are here to tell you that we are just one week away from the "Re-Lunch" of Born to Serve. As a reminder we are launching at around 10am EST next Tuesday January 8th (I guess 10am makes it more of a Re-Brunch technically). We hope to see you all back there and if at all possible on day one. This would go a long way in showing the Kickstarter and Gaming community that Born to Serve is a game worth supporting.
As you may know, we took all of the feedback very seriously and made some big changes. Starting with lowering the price of Born to Serve to $29 and unbundling the shipping cost from the pledges which is just $7.00 for US backers as we are covering just over half of that expense.
Second, have changed the box cover art to better reflect what Born to Serve is all about and to make clear it is not "just another superhero game". In this same vein you will notice that the new main Kickstarter image has also been changed to something that we feel more reflects the game's theme about out of work superheroes competing for a job at their local restaurant.
Third, we have taken steps to help make it clear to potential backers that even though the prototype is mostly cards, this does not reflect the final product. The Heroes, Staff, Phantom Realm, The First Hero marker and all of the player's Fortress of Loneliness are all tiles which we were told did not come across as it should have the first time around. To combat this we are adding a new quick game overview video showing the prototype tiles we made. Additionally, while we can't change previous reviews which used a lesser prototype, we have added a new one from the great Edo from Gaming with Edo with a better prototype being featured.
There are many more improvements which will hopefully help reach our goal this time around, but I don't want to turn this into a graphic novel. :) Again, we thank all of you heroes who have supported us with Born to Serve from the beginning and hope that you are willing to stick with us. We can defeat the bad guys and serve up a hot meal of Born to Serve with your help.
Diane and Nick
