Day 3 Update - 800 Backers and 6 Stretch Goals Unlocked

Posted by APE Gamer (Creator)

We're creeping up on $70K and the 7th stretch goal - an alternate mid-boss for the Tower Laboratory expansion. A few words on the expansions - APE commissioned the expansions a while back, and we have had them without art for several months. I wanted to be sure that the project was going to fund before investing too much into the art. I had the heroes, main bosses and cover art for Philip duBarry's Tower Laboratory expansion done before the project started so that we could include that in the initial Kickstarter launch, but there's still a lot more art to do. I waited until after the project launched to start the art for Scott Almes' Cursed Library expansion. I chose for this one to be second since it's a lot more ambitious than Tower Laboratory. I showed you Sir Conan Doyle in yesterday's update. I'd actually received that art only a couple of hours before I made the update and it's the first piece of art that I got for Cursed Library.  I'll provide a lot more details on that expansion and make it available as an add-on as soon as I get the cover art, which the artist is working hard to complete.

Before leaving the topic of expansions, here's the art for The Mechanic hero from the Tower Laboratory. The artist for this expansion is Vincent Joubert (Moa, Via Nebula).

Room Cards and an Upcoming Kevin Wilson Post

I mentioned earlier today (in a comment? on BGG?) that a lot of the genius of the game comes from the rooms and it's hard to appreciate that until you actually play. The enemy interaction, their placement in the room, and the increasing peril effects make each room a unique challenge. Kevin Wilson has offered to do a guest update post where he'll talk about Stygian Society rooms. Expect that in the next couple of days.

      Dang! I was hoping you mentioned the add-on pricing especially DitN. I just want to give you my money. :)

      Interesting. Will wait for more info then, sounds like it's more like a different campaign entirely than just 'more stuff.' Probably will grab anywho :)

      No pressure, I know it's a lot. If you have any word before the campaign ends I'd appreciate it, but thanks again for all the hard work!

      The expansions haven't been tested to work together. Certainly, The Cursed Library is different enough that you will not want to play it with the base game or Tower Laboratory expansion.

      Nothing to announce on using just one hero each when playing 2 players. It's been everything I can do to keep up with the comments, updates, and stretch goals in addition to my day job!

      Are the expansions completely cross-compatible? Like, we can use the heroes from the base game, the mid-bosses from Add-on 1, and the End Bosses from Add-on 2?

      Also, any word on 2p scaling?

      Project looks amazing, keep up the great work!
