Gameplay Video, BGG Contest and one more sneak peek

Posted by Artipia Games (Creator)

Hello everyone!

We are back with another update!

4 - Player Gameplay video

We have released a 4-player gameplay video of Project: ELITE. Make sure to check it out and let us know what you think.

The Objective we played was Extermination at Medium Difficulty.

The Characters we played with were:

Spyros (bottom-left) with Bus : He ignores wounds when he is pushed by Aliens.  

Konstantions (top-left) with Lilla: She can ignore 5 Alien Moves rolled per Round.  

Nikos (top-right) with Momentum: He can move 2 spaces for every Move symbol rolled.  

Sotirios (bottom-right) with Robcart: He can -once per Round- search for Weapons/Items anywhere on the Game Board.

BGG Contest

Yesterday we also launched a Project: ELITE contest on If you are a member of BGG make sure to participate and get a chance to win a free copy of the game + stretch rewards. VISIT THE CONTEST.

A Sneak Peek

We have a final sneak peek for you! We are very close to revealing an expansion add-on for the game. Until then, we have a special treat for you.

We have already shown you several awesome Characters with exciting abilities but this... this is something else. How about a Character who controls a droid?!

Everyone, this is Vicky. Her ability is that she's able to control a droid while fighting on the battlefield. By doing so, she allows the player to be present in two places at the same time! And the best part? Her droid does not even need to return to the starting area after the job is done. She just leaves it on the battlefield.

Gameplay-wise, this Character comes with two different Character cards and two miniatures. The player who plays with Vicky can also control her droid. That player still gets 4 Action Dice as normal (5 in Solo), but may use the rolled symbols on either Character. Each Character has their own inventory. They have a mutual pool of life.

But wait, we are not done yet! Backers also get to name this droid! We noticed that many of you requested for a name starting with KS- as a reminder of this campaign's contribution to the game's production. We invite you to suggest names for the droid in the comments of this update in the following form KS-[NAME].

Tomorrow we will launch a poll on Boardgamegeek where everyone will have the chance to vote which name they prefer for the droid.

We say it all the time but we can't say it enough. Thank you so much for supporting our campaign and helping us bring this game to life!

      KS - 571

    8. Michael Smaragdakis on

      KS-Backer's Nr is an obvious and fitting name but KS-R4HD0 seems to me by far the best one of those I read.

    9. Richard Diosi

      KS-ATS (Among the Stars)

      On the other hand Vicky and her robot are cool, though the robot might be to sexy. :)

      Okay, I watched the video yesterday and was trying to figure out how to say this, but did it seem like it was to easy? The game was finished in five turns with what looked like very little threat to the players. If you watch closely, the guy in the bottom right corner (Sotirios) even seems to play pretty slow compared to the previous hectic die rolling we have seen.

      Another question while watching this one is what happens when two players want to affect the same alien? Say one wants to move it while the other is shooting it? Who takes precedent? Can one move the alien and thereby negate an attack, say if it were moved out of line of sight or range?

    13. Tarcha Saleeba

      KS- PERobo
      (As in project elite robot)

    14. Skazz

      Do not Name the Hero Vicky but Jen. Then you can Name the droid KS-RDO.
      if you do so the Shared Pool of life is more thematic. :-)

      Also not having a 2 minute soundtrack with an optional add X seconds option (for those aliens who add seconds) is a severely missed opportunity.

      BUT with a slight variation, pending how many. e.g now we are 1279 backers; so make some of those numbers it matching letters, in this case "L27g" .. that idea

      Also like KS-52515 (date KS ends as Founded :) )

    21. Stuart Fern on

      I like KS-Echo.

      Echo already sounds like a robot name but it also has the symbolism of reflecting what the character is doing.

      I also love the KS-#### idea for the number of backers.

      I also liked the red shirt idea. But with a slight modification: KS-R3D5HRT (makes it look more like a model number)

    27. Caleb O'Brien on

      @Don Riddle, I like the Echo Knight & Asimov3.

    28. Don Riddle

      KS-Asimov3 (For his 3 laws)

    29. Fabian Bohlmann on

      KS-CK (pronounced Sicky - so it's Vicky & Sicky)
      KS-242 (because oldschool EBM will provide the perfect soundtrack to this game)
      KS-G.A.E.M. (GuardianAndExterminationMecha) - (pronounced KS-GAME)

    30. Artipia Games 15-time creator

      Pink Dice! Please tell me the game comes with pink dice!

      Well.. no :) It comes with green :D

    31. Sebĉjo on

      KS-42 sounds nice to me, for 42 is the answer to everything isn't it?

    32. Renato "Merc with a Mouth" Lule on

      @Levi, I think you misunderstood the KS-# suggestion. We will have a number at the end the "#" is just a placeholder for now until we know the final number of backers for the project.

    33. Jedra7609

      Pink Dice! Please tell me the game comes with pink dice!

      @Renato & @Joaquin +1
      KS-[number of backers]

    35. Joaquin

      I got a second suggestion: Since you can leave him on the battle field when evacuating, what about KS-Redshirt. Though I still like the number of backers better!

      I know this is kind of simple, but I suggest KS-512. Putting a number on the end looks better/cleaner to me. And 512 is just a nice number; it's one of the powers of 2 that show up in programing or graphics a lot, and it rolls off the tip of the tongue.

    38. Caleb O'Brien on

      That's so cool! Can see him being hugely useful in protecting the home zone as well as covering the final retreat. Really like the idea of KS-[# of final backers].

    39. Renato "Merc with a Mouth" Lule on

      @Joaquin, thanks man! I really hope it gets chosen!

    40. TyDeL

      Woo! That sounds like a really fun character to play! Does she not start with an item like other characters? Seems like it would be much stronger otherwise.

      Is this a Kickstarter exclusive or will it be in all boxes, or just as an option addon in the future?

      Really cool, I can't wait to paint the droid!

    41. Joaquin

      I have to give a hats off to @Renato for my suggestion! I had seen his suggestion somewhere else, but didn't remember who it was from!

    42. Renato "Merc with a Mouth" Lule on

      This would be perfect for the idea I had where we name something KS-(#) where #=the final number of backers! He is a droid after all so a numerical name would fit in perfectly! =D

    43. John Garcia on

      When naming the Droid, you should call it KS-##### with the #'s being the final funding amount from kickstarter. For example, if at the end of the campaign the total amount funded is $132,781, the droid should be called KS-132781.

      This way the droid is highly tied to the contributions of the kickstarter campaign!
