9,627 backers pledged £621,811 to help bring this project to life.



Hey guys!

The campaign is over and you guys left us speechless. During those amazing 21 days we have managed to gather 621 811 GBP thanks to kindness of 9 627 backers!

We also manage to acquire a similar funding to Blood Rage and this is amazing! Why? Because we hope that together we have shown Board Game industry that games carrying a message and with a meaningful story are something that people desire!

In the Kickstarter trailer movie, Michał Oracz, was talking about bringing some kind of revolution to board games and thanks to you guys it become a reality! THANK YOU!

What now? We need a little sleep ;)

But tomorrow we will send out another update with all the information, upcoming deadlines and how things will work from now on. You gave us TONS of motivation and positive energy and we will put all of it into the game to provide you with one of the best tabletop experiences so far!

      Congrats & thank you for doing this. I'm glad I was given the chance to back something like this. Without your team's effort in the first place, none of this excitement, backing, funding would have happened. So, thanks for taking the risk!

      I'm thrilled to have helped make this a reality. I wish there was a way I could get my hands on a prototype copy so I didn't have to wait until February to play this amazing looking product.

      Congratulations what an amazing project, I am excited to be part of it.

      Congratulations -- have a wild party and then get some sleep after what must have been pretty exhausting for you fine folks at Awaken Realms.
      Once you are refreshed, in a couple days when the waves calmed down, maybe think about the hot topics again. Just the money on top of the last stretch goal is three times the initial funding threshold -- if you were happy with 800 people and £40,000 GBP to produce the game from scratch, incl. copyright/license fees, brainstorming sessions, art/graphics design, game development and playtesting, English translations/proofreading and all the other overhead, perhaps there's now a cushion to fill in what's missing for complete translations? :-)
      A decent, mounted tactical board (as it should have been in the first place, instead of mixing different qualities for game materials) adds another what? ... $1.50 - $2.00 USD to the costs? That's 10% of the last £120,000 on top of the last stretch goal and should be feasible without further ado.
      With the number of backers nearly hitting the magical 10,000 mark -- plus those that will buy the game in retail stores -- production techniques and materials make sense that may not have been an economically viable option for 5000 customers. While is just an example of one of many manufacturers, considering the production of furniture, etc., for more reasonable prices might no longer be such a bad idea as it seemed a week ago. :-)
      These are not complaints or requests, not at all, just something to consider in a quiet moment when the dust has settled. Retail margins are lower and retail customers not as pre-conditioned as KS aficionados; going the extra mile will make the game more competitive and reduce sticker shocks. Can't hurt to think about it, can it? :-)
      Thanks for the ride, all the best and take care.

      I'm curious about the custom minis:will they be available to everyone, just the person paying for them, or a mix of both?

      I've never been a fan of other "real" gamers as minis in KS boardgames and video games, but even though I can't get my dog :( I am just a little tempted by the idea of a custom human AR mini due to the amazing quality. Is there any extra deadlines for buying those (due to the extra logistics needed to sculpt them)?
