What a Great Campaign!

Thank you so much for being a part of this project. It was an amazing experience, and I'm so grateful for the support from you and the other 1,685 backers. We totally are making a crazy 3D mountain game! As I've mentioned before, spending 2 years working full time without pay on this project, and having all of you show so much support, has been an amazing experience! I'm so happy and thankful. (: 

Moving Up The Next Mountain...

Obtaining the funding was just the first step. Now begins the process of adding in all the stretch goals, doing the final play testing, redoing manufacturing quotes, preparing for fulfillment, and all the less glorious responsibilities of a game publishing company! 

I hope that I can count on you to remain an active member of this community we've created, to keep up the support, to give us feedback, to review final text/art files, and help make this one of the coolest board games ever! 

For my part, I promise to provide you with regular project updates, include you in the final design process, and respond to your questions as promptly as possible. Because I need to focus my energy and time on meeting our August 2018 delivery goal, I may not always respond to every comment in the same hour, but I promise that I see everything you send, and it goes into a follow up folder on my email.

Additionally, if you want to be more involved in the design process, please check out a couple of our social media links: 

More Important Information!

Pledge Manager and Extras:

Don't worry if you didn't get all the extra's you wanted. You'll be able to do this in CrowdOx, our pledge manager. You will also be able to upgrade your pledge to a better edition. 

We'll send out the link for the pledge manager as soon as possible, but it will probably be a few days, and not till after the weekend at least. Note that the extras and shipping prices shown in the pre-order link aren't for you- they are for late pre-orders! Our Kickstarter backers get the best deal! 

German Language Edition: 

Spieleschmiede is doing a crowdfunding campaign to produce a German edition of the game. Here is a link that you can visit or share with your German friends: https://www.spiele-offensive.de/Spieleschmiede/Mountaineers/

Other Languages: 

We'll have card packs and rule books in many language options for you to choose as extras. We are also still talking with other publishers about licensing other language editions. I'll let you know if anything becomes available, and in the case that it does, we'll work to get your Kickstarter copy in that language, if at all possible. 

If you know any distributors or publishers in your country that might be interested, please share our campaign with them, or send me their contact info. (: 

Have a Great Weekend! 

Thanks again for rocking this campaign! I hope you have an amazing weekend, playing lots of games, and enjoying the holiday season. I'm going to try to spend a little time tomorrow and Sunday, relaxing and resting, but I'll see you guys bright and early on Monday! 

Don't hesitate to reach out in the comments or by message if you have any questions. 

Sincerely, 

Corey Wright

      Hi Andrew,

      Good point... I'll relay this to the artist, and also see if I can get you guys all the different characters to provide constructive criticism for her... Glad to hear you like the overall style though! (:

      Thanks for the update. Great to see a clear path laid out.

      If you don't mind a bit of critique of the two character arts...something about them doesn't fit. The faces don't seem to match the bodies. In the case of Pasang, the 'head on' shot of the face doesn't match the pose of the body (which suggests a face looking off towards the right). I'm assuming these are photos of backers or friends being incorporated into the art, but, at this point, it looks a bit disjointed. I'll also say that I love the overall artstyle presented in the bodies.
