About

The Alter Story

First, I need an artist to capture a natural feel of the ‘Alter’ story and create a cover for the standard print version and help brand the story. In addition I want to mass produce a fun and adventurous board game that has been in the making for around six years. It was created by game theory graduates and professional gaming experts with incredible resumes; being play tested hundreds of times. It is ready for release. I do not want to work through a publisher or gaming broker to get it on shelves. I want to work with other game lovers, like myself, to build and ship our product, continuing other story-lines in the ‘Alter’ series and ‘Journeys of the Esephris’. 

The ‘Alter’ board is set to a time when the face of this world was changed forever. There are hundreds of countries that have been lost by catastrophic disaster. Atlantis holds a chance of surviving if all of the Crystal Skulls can be gathered together in the District of Atlantis. Countries and territories are displayed in a grid pattern and defined as “Districts”.

The Atlantean Districts are about to fall, with all of the knowledge and wisdom of their civilization stored in crystal orbs, known as the Skulls of God, an Esephris is sent by Ka to travel the world, retrieve the skulls and return them to the Fountain of Time. Through the fountain they can escape our planet and keep the skulls from falling under the Shadow Cult’s power. As war, plague, and natural disasters break out around the world, the members of the Tje Council of Light as well as the Shadow Cult all seek to possess the skulls. The world power that can return all 13 skulls to the Atlantean Fountain of Time will survive and be granted the power to rebuild their once great civilization.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk for Alter is the cost of materials. Those who have pledged $1000 will get a well crafted and handmade board game. They are the "Get the cost down" version of the game. With those 100 unique and limited games we will track costs and watch pipelines to refine our manufacturing process and seek affiliates if needed. The challenge is to create an affordable adventurous game with a target price of $30 that offers hundreds of hours in game play. The story already lends itself to a large demographic but advertising costs will also be a risk. If there is too much time spent on the manufacturing and budgets get cut in advertising, the full potential of the game might not be met. Many people have shown an interest in the story of the Esephris, but most haven’t even heard of it, exposure to the right people at the right time is very important. Having a running advertising campaign by December 21, 2012 would be awesome.
