the math is done, the project is wrapped up.
We want to share the final summary of the project that gave the game, thanks to you, a massive push forward.
Before we move on to the numbers, three things to address:
1/ There are still a couple of backers that didn't receive their BunBuns, Heralds or some other minis. While not the most comfortable situation, we wanted to combine productions and shippings with the new models – that due to the long queues at both of our casters and holidays don’t help either. We will amend this asap, the order has been placed.
2/ Supreme Genesis backers, as above, the streamlining process means your cards are not printed yet, but here’s the good news – we will ship you (next week) resin master copies of your models for you to enjoy (that is something beyond the original pledge) and then follow up with metals (where required) and cards.
3/ There are still some backers that: never got back to us with their pledges or never paid remaining dues. If the situation was simple – we shipped the pledge in its basic form, but there are some that require decisions made by backers (which of the factions pack do you choose?). The numbers ain’t huge, but after multiple attempts at communication via email and KS messages, we are making the final push this week and leaving that window open for 30 days. Please get back to us!
The numbers: I am glad that the economy behind this KS worked (mostly :)) the way we planned. Thanks to you, the book, the cards and nearly 40 new minis are there for you to enjoy.
As you see, the casting cost is MASSIVE. Do we feel great about it? Yes and no. Yes, because we worked with the best local companies using traditional methods, supporting the local economy; no, because maybe doing the casting in China would have saved some money.
As you see, the budget doesn’t include literally thousands of hours that went into reworking the rules and over 100 profiles between me, Leon & Devon and some extent Melvin. Some companies hire rules writers, we have house writers and amazing playtesters.
Shipping includes warehousing, shipping services and labor as well as packing materials.
What is the Reserve budget? Vide non-responding backers, money saved for shipping and production costs.
In the end, we got a bigger and a better game and we’ve managed to run a great campaign.
KS turned to be a blessing for our boutique game, proving it is a great tool to promote new content. Please keep your eyes peeled for what’s coming up in the near future – either look at the last page of the book or visit our Facebook page! Are you Team Breaker or Team Hammer?
All the best to you and happy gaming, Maciej, Devon, Leon, Melvin & Karol
