2-4 player game of miniatures, mages, & monsters. Battle with monsters in gladiatorial combat for the right to be the ARCHMAGE!
Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
@Dave im still a fan of your project and do keep ready to back u again. Im very sad all the work with my friends for naming and flavoring the critters will be on hold, but Hey, then we have a headstart for the next launch!!!
Tbh wouldn't have backed if this was another creator... But I want to keep things running :)
Yeah, I realized that too late, feels like I had to read the manual first. But at least I will get the updates :)
Ruben read the last update - lots of details in there. It will come back in another form and there is info on NMF3 and some other light games we are doing and news about our ROBOTECH license
I'm on board! But I'm also with @Shihayazat, I've seen this theme, or type of game play too many times even on kickstarter. It's just that I love Nightmare Forest Dead run and lords of rock, and I really trust you Dave that I back this project. And you are right, these sculpts are very nice indeed. Oh and I'm just too late, project is cancelled.
Y'all I appreciate the faith. It is very hard to do mins as a 1 person company but I had such nice sculpts I had to try...twice. It was worth it and now we proceed to work on the things that we already had planned and we retool this a little to be more affordable to people who like lighter games like we make and the ROBOTECH deal was huge for us and going to be so much fun.
The Kids games will be inexpensive and light and we can keep building a fan base. NMF3 will be epic fun...fantasy monsters, ranged combat in a NMF game, and a boss wave and magic...all in that same size box if I can swing it...
Alien Invasion ended up at about 1.7lbs in 8 x 5 x 1.45 backpack brick
Though I have to admit the version without minis could be my Option.
Your determination and spirit is certainly admirable Dave. Will be on board for the next one, no question.
I still think it is cause the theme is not "special" enough and versus battle isn't en vogue :(
And there really are a lot of KS running all the time...
@kevin I appreciate that but - I have a plan and I am working on that update right now.
Shame this KS hasn't more interest.
And another two thumbs ;)
@shih thanks and there is a update coming in a minute that will show everyone the long term plan.
Can't emphasize enough how great customer service here is...
Before AND after the KS...
Two thumbs up (more if I was a four handed alien / demon / elemental)
@Dave all the monsters from the 1st 3 games all come back for one last push to release the ultimate ....gahhhhhh
Made me laugh!
Looking forward to the upcoming games.
Missing only dead run btw but maybe that will be available in the next nightmare forest KS
Reagrding the mat...
Then I shall wait for part three and hope the mat works...
Thanks for all the answers.
Hm did an Internet search and none of the "bigger" shops carry your games...
Well thankfully you keep using KS :)
@shih We have some of the Mats left. Email me directly and see if we can do anything customs friendly. Also note the plan is when we do Monstrous Horde we will do a NEW mat for that - and it SHOULD also be able to be used to play the first 2. :) Darkness Rising (NMF4 and the finale in the story) wont have a mat - it will be a larger game with a board and bits and stuff as all the monsters from the 1st 3 games all come back for one last push to release the ultimate ....gahhhhhh
I dont know which ones you have. Thrash-Car and Dumpster Brawl will be retired shortly and are not in distribution. Nightmare Forest: Dead Run (SRF0300), Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion (SRF301), Lords of Rock (SRF0400), Lords of Rock: Mosh Pit (SRF0401), Archmage Origins (SRF0500) and Udder Terror are all in active distribution. So if you have a game store you like you can request them to get any of those and they should be able to be ordered from whoever their distributor is. We distribute via Impressions in CA-USA. The ROBOTECH game when we put into distro should be available everywhere BUT Japan.
Speaking of nightmare forest...
Make sure the playmat and previous games will be available there ;)
Skipped the mat and the first game and am not happy with my choice...
Oh I forgot....
How can I get hold of any older games in europe?
And the new direct to retail when it becomes available.
Do you have a partner here?
Importing from the US is a little on the expensive side with shipping and fees and stuff :(
@shih appreciate that. Next year will bring Kids vs the House (and maybe Kids vs the Quests) in the same KS (light filler games within the same universe) then the ROBOTECH game will go straight to stores aroud June and then Monstrous Horde (aka Nightmare Forest 3) around this time next year
I like the new KS and do want that game...
And on a brighter topic..
I now own two "real" and three small ones of your games and I must say they're all definitely worth their price.
Keep on designing games no matter the outcome here please ;)
Yes there is a plan - if we get to that point I will send it in an update.
Not to sound negative...
But is there a plan in case this doesn't fund?
Hey peeps, lets do our part and get some click throughs happening here!
Critter 3: Anathommy
He's the creation of the bones collected from his victims. Now he can't dicide wich head to wear, so he's after yours!
Sorry I was late to the party, have been travelling. Let's get this sucker funded!
Oh a direct to store Release...
Sounds good... But will I be able to get it in europe without paying twice the price?
We will (hopefully) know by friday ;)
Maybe it is because coop is the thing nowadays...
Maybe the theme isn't "special" enough to catch... Reffering to a game happening inside ones mind that does very well in terms of funding right now... I am almost sure part of the success is due to the "different" artwork and setting...
I still hope this funds...
Was referring to the number of backers not the percentage of funding. I think there are less than last time... But tbh it is only a feeling...
@shihayazat well its relative I had to make the goal higher to free all the minis up front. There will be a big news item about SFG this Friday late in the and we will see if it has impact like I think it will for visibility and traffic. If not we will all have a conversation on what the next steps are. I never give up on a game that is this much fun and it just may require one more reconfiguration but I will make sure that we discuss those options. You are all great supporters and I appreciate all the help and involvement everyone has had. Just stick with it and stay engaged and we will see where the ship goes as a team.
It seems the project is doing worse than last time :(
@sean the monsters on each team some can vary - yes the art is different on all of them and then on each team there are monsters that have special powers and they are thematic to their school of magic from which they originate. Additionally the wizards each have a different thematic power.
@elli at that level it is effectively all the paid addons that are available at the time the campaign ends
Will each monster from each team differ in form of rules? Or is it just appearance only? Will there be any synergy between having different types of monsters out at once? How will the different teams differ in playstyle? Thanks for any answers your able to offer :)
Hey guys happy to.be here. When you say one of all unlocked add-ons does that mean I get one of each unlocked paid add-ons or I get ONE from all of them (rather confused sorry) xx
Great, thanks. I'll change my pledge
@Destiny - the 70$ level comes with the 20 minis the game does not contain standees. The 100+ levels come with the game (the base minis) and then a second set of minis.
Does the $70 level come with any minis or is it just the $125 level. The $70 comes with standees only?
Critter 1: Scallop
Critter 2: Trident + Imp = Trimp
Critter 2: Imppy "the naughty imp"
With his staff he takes controle of your mind by taking away your happyness.
Thnx to my daughter Ilana for helping with the name.
Critter 01: Cyclasp
"Once it's got you in it's steel grasp, it stares deep into your eyes revealing your mortal fate."
Critter 2: Impherno
"From the hottest depths they plot the demise of the world above."
Critter 1: Wannay "the eyecatcher"
With his claw it tries to steel the eyes of sleeping people to leave them in an everlasting nightmare.
Thnx to my 8th year old son Reno for the idea!
If you follow the link below you can see the first two images of two of the demons that can be summoned. We would love you to suggest fun and/or scary names for them as well as flavor text for each one. Any ideas we use will get the comment's creator listed in the rule book as one of our honorable Archmages.
We will be posting at least every other day so check back and comment often.
Thanks Kyle we will love to have you join the SFG FAN-mily.
That sounds fair enough! I will be increasing my pledge fairly shortly. Good luck on this run!
