Frequently Asked Questions
3rd Party Enemy:
The Cyber-Memetic Sociopaths (CyMS) are a constant threat to both sides, and both sides alternately control them to harass their opponent! This unique mechanic adds more tactical depth for all players, going far beyond the use of basic AI to control the CyMS.
Assemble Your Squad:
Omicron Protocol offers a seamless experience, where the game mechanics represent the world and each character is fully realized by their story and special abilities.
The game mechanics have been relentlessly streamlined to eliminate needlessly complex rules without sacrificing tactical depth. The different combinations of factions, characters, scenarios, and CyMS behavior make the game almost infinitely replayable. A game can even be played in less than an hour!
Our community is our backbone and they have spoken! They wanted a solo mode! We loved this idea and have set ourselves apart from other skirmish miniature games by using our 3rd party enemy to craft a fun and challenging experience that you can enjoy solo or with friends.
We are dedicated to growing local communities via league and tournament support. We will continue to introduce expansions that include new factions and characters for years to come, as well as keep all the existing factions and characters balanced and competitive. We will also have an online editor to create and share your own scenarios.Last updated:
Retailers! We would love to have your support! If you’re a brick and mortar retailer and would like to carry Omicron Protocol in your store, here’s some information on what we offer you. For more information, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
You can reserve your copies during this campaign by putting down a $25 deposit (choose to make a pledge without reward and put in $25). With that pledge, we will:
Give you 50% off Retail price (which will be $10-20 higher than KS price), and we will NOT sell the game in late pledges or on our (direct) online store for lower than the Retail price.
Reserve a number of copies for you of any pledge level, in multiples of 5, with all KS stretch goals and exclusives included. In short, we treat you like our valuable KS backers.
Ship to you for free if you’re in the Continental USA (any other address will require forwarding service, or we can figure something out!)
Give you an extra demo copy.
Deliver your copy at the same time as the regular backers, but before any distributors or direct sales.
To qualify for this pledge level, you must provide us with (by emailing email@example.com):
Your official business name and address.
Business tax ID/VAT number (and which state or country)

Yes! You can make a "Pledge Without Reward", add the total value of the add-on(s) you want, and you will receive that many dollars in the pledge manager, where you can select your rewards.Last updated:
The standee version (Basic Survivor) is available from day 1. This just means that that we will include standees in the regular version of the core box (Prepared Survivor & up) in addition to miniatures.Last updated:
Q: What are the miniatures made of? A: PVC 100 - 110 plastic. This is hard plastic which is good for achieving a high level of detail.
Q: Do they come painted? A: NoLast updated:
The core game and expansion will be more expensive in retail, even after adding US shipping.

Yes! We will work with a well known pledge manager with a lot of experience with post-Kickstarter pledge management, add-ons, and payments. We will send out a pledge manager link to all backers when all the pre-production work is ready after the Kickstarter campaign closes.Last updated:
Backers in some regions, especially the Middle East, Africa, South and Central America may experience high shipping fees that reflect the actual cost of shipping to these areas in excess of 50 USD; also be aware that you may be responsible for import duties, taxes, and/or brokerage fees, and that we must comply with international law and cannot mark your reward as a gift or declare that it has a value of zero. Please be aware of this before backing the project.Last updated:
Unfortunately, due to the cost of localizing our rulebook, we will not be providing the rulebook in languages other than English, unless there is a large group of supporters from countries speaking a different language. We will continue to evaluate the backer numbers and will make announcements accordingly if anything changes!Last updated:
We can refund you within 14 days of the campaign’s end, fees included. After that, we can refund your pledge amount, minus Kickstarter fees, up until we start the fulfillment process. Once we have begun the fulfillment process, no refunds are possible. If you decide that you want a refund you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Last updated:
This is our first project and we have observed a lot of KS campaigns. 14 months fulfillment estimate with a lot of buffer in hopes that we can deliver early, but at the very least not late. We want to exceed your expectations.Last updated:
If we fund well we may offer this as a stretch goal!
