About

Strategy is key in this turn based battle game to siege and conquer your opponent’s kingdom. You must take your weapons in hand, to fight and destroy your enemies till victory is won. Use your ballista to shoot and weaken your enemy’s towers, launch projectiles at the enemy’s defense with your conquering catapult and storm the castle front with your barbarian warriors. Choose your movements carefully, any ill decisions could lead to your defeat as you watch your legion crumble before you. For honor, pride and Victory. All in the fight, for Medieval Siege attack.

At Mind Sketch we love developing fun and exciting projects for our clients that really engage the kickstarter community. With that in mind we’ve decided to launch our own game that takes medieval technology to the next level. Not only can you use your onager and ballista to fire randomly with your friends, you can also use them to go head to head in one of our turn based strategy games. We have created multiple game types from `target practice` to `all out war` and these correspond to specific reward tiers to ensure everyone has a chance to get their hands on one of our creations. Check out a sneak preview of the game instructions here!

Why
We would like to use your pledges to produce our first run of this game. We will use this money to develop new warriors, siege engines and game machanics along with a tips and advice section on our website which will also include great ways you can decorate your siege kit.

Risks and challenges

This is not our first experience of Kickstarter. Many of our clients have used Kick Starter to crowd fund there ventures, including strooder and BOHA humming bird corkscrew. However it is our first personal campaign and no one can claim there Kickstarter project has no risks so we will have a look at some possibilities.

Delivery Delays

We have done all in our power to ensure that we will deliver on time. We already have our laser cutting supplier in place, with all the necessary files (including any stretch goal perks), information and contracts in place. As soon as we reach our goal or our campaign finishes we will call them to begin production straight away. We have our samples back from suppliers ensuring they meet our strict guide lines.

In the event that our laser cutting suppliers property is besieged by medieval warriors, flood, fire or any other unforeseen disaster, which would prevent them from delivering, we have another supplier backed up to deliver our product. However in this event it may take a few extra weeks to get your pledges to you.

As you can see we have tried planning for the worst case scenario, so short of national disaster, major personal illness or death. We will deliver on time.

Missing Parts

We have carefull precautions in place to ensure you are not disappointed when you open you siege kit as a result of missing parts. There is nothing more annoying… ok maybe stubbing your toe.

We have designed the files so all the parts fit on a A4 sheet. They are attached by small connectors that pop off when the componant is pushed, tactically positioned, so they don’t interfere with high tolerance parts. However you may notice that some small bits are missing from the sheet. This is normal, we allow small none integral parts to fall out, making your assembly easier.

We take these precautions and more to ensure no part can accidently not get packed or fall out in production.

However in the event that your kit does turn up and it is missing a part (Obviously stolen by mischievous gremlins in the factory) we will happy send you the missing parts, plus a whole new 1 and a hand written apology. We will also have a stern talk with our shipping fulfilment suppliers and manufactures and give them a slap on the wrist for letting you down, customers satisfaction is always key.

But what about a zombie apocalypse?…

In the event of a zombie apocalypse our fulfilment will likely be very delayed. However your priority should probably not be “when will I get my Siege kit?” but, “crap I hope I have enough spam in the cellar to last me for the rest of my life”.
