Hey, everyone! As some of you might already know, we at Ill Gotten Games have been producing fully 3d-printable boardgames and miniature wargames for the last five years. What we started with our first game, Pocket-Tactics has led us to our first Kickstarted 3d-print-and-play game, TELEDROME!
In Teledrome, you take the role of a ruthless fight promoter, assembling and training a diverse force of gladiators to battle in televised events broadcast across the Wayfarer Multiverse.
Teledrome is our first official game using our OpenTactics wargaming system, and those of you who have played Pocket-Tactics will already be familiar with the core dice mechanics. Games of Teledrome generally last between 20-40 minutes, though extended campaigns may be played, where players grow their force and level up their individual gladiators.
We'll be introducing the character pieces and traps as the campaign progresses. We'll also be be offering custom-character slots at each stretch goal, taking a poll from you the backers at each level and choosing our favorite character concept! So, get to thinking about what you'd like to see and be ready to weigh in!
We'll update this space as stretch goals are unlocked. With each stretch goal met, we'll poll you, the backers, in a special update, asking for component ideas and designing the goal after our favorites. All backers at the $25 or higher pledge levels will receive all unlocked stretch goals along with the base rewards.
Backers who pledge at $40 or higher will receive the Teledrome Coliseum scenery tiles. Like the arena tiles (into which these will integrate) the coliseum is fully modular. Unlike the base arena tiles, however, the coliseum isn't required for game play.
MINIATURE AND TERRAIN SCALES
All of the models included in this game come printable in one of two scales:
OT Scale: A smaller scale (close o 18-20mm) perfect for quick printing and casual gameplay. OT scale is perfect if you don't want to paint your models, simply color coding by filament (though they can be painted if you prefer). OT scale models are also space efficient, allowing for larger arena builds.
28mm/Heroic scale: The standardized miniature scale of the tabletop world. Printing at this scale will ensure that your miniatures and terrain tiles are compatible with other models you may have in your collection.
Do you design models for 3d printing? Want to contribute to the game? If you have a design or are interested in making one for Teledrome, get in touch with us! Direct message us here on Kickstarter or email us with your ideas!
The following is a space that we'll be updating with images as we finish model prototypes. Here you'll be able to see the finished prints, as well as models in both scales.
Risks and challenges
Since most of the game has been printed and play tested, we're expecting that we'll be finished before long. We've set a two month lead to get the product finalized, though we may end up releasing before then.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
