About

Maze Ship Battles is a multiplayer strategy game set in war torn 12 galaxies under attack from the Isrun’s. This game is 2 to 4 players, ages 13 and up. Player’s control 1 of 4 Heroes who have been captured by the Isrun’s and await execution on the Isrun’s mother ship. Heroes must escape and strategize to reach the bridge of the ship where they can escape and go to the aid of each of their galaxies under attack by the Isrun’s. 

 Designing Maze Ship Battles

The creation of Maze Ship Battles has been a massive undertaking with our team of 11. It first starting with a short story and a simple idea of a circular shifting maze system that all players could strategizes to control and ultimately win. Too many times have we played games that didn’t take the right approach in development and the game play was subpar. Or the game play level and strategy couldn’t be increased as we become more familiar with the game and ultimately started to master the game.

That’s why we took a very different approach while creating what we feel is the ultimate strategy game. We wanted to create a simple out of the box game that appealed to all levels of experience. Once we had created a short story of the characters and the world they lived in, we then started at the core stage of development with our design team who created the complex 4 level shifting maze system. This in itself took over a month for the team to create and understand how the board and the players all interacted. 

We then worked for over 3 months with our strategy team creating how the complex maze system works. Giving layers and layers of in-depth strategies for the game play to evolve. We then spent over 3 months and thousands of hours of game play fine tuning the maze system, obstacles, advantages, and length of average game play.

After these final adjustments the game was ready to come to life. We then started working with our master illustrator while he brought the vision of the characters and game to life. Giving the game not only layers of exciting game play but visually stimulating illustrations that ultimately give the player the feeling that they are on the ship and in the game. Our vision is that this will become a game night favorite played in social groups all across the world.

Please support us and be part of the team bringing this project to life.

Risks and challenges

The game has been in playtest since August, 2014, and it is now rock-solid – extremely playable and fun. Maze Ship Battles is a finished and polished game that only needs the playing card illustrations, board joint and characters figures designed. All we need is the money for these few tasks and to start publishing it, so it can get into the homes and hearts of gamers worldwide. But there is a lot of work still to do. Even though the game has been designed and thoroughly tested, all of the miniatures still need to be mastered for plastic production, and the game components need to be finalized and printed.

It's very easy to get overwhelmed with all the work that it takes to make a board game, but we have figured out the costs and have worked it, so that we can offer you the cheapest price yet still make it a viable venture, and keep the components high in quality. We are just a small team, and we want to be smart in our planning and expectations. There are a lot of pledges to fulfill, plus add-ons and expansions to manage. With that being said, we have found great manufacturing company that has shipped successful Kickstarter projects in the past also so we have full confidence that we can deliver the game to you in time. Since all cost and factors have been calculated and game is finished we are confident we can achieve all our goals within the budget provided.
