Tons of people want our game even though our Kickstarter campaign came up short. 

We’re working on Plan B right now.

If you want us to let you know when it’s available, head to fixestgame.com

We'll let you know how Plan B is shaping up and, most importantly, when & how you can buy a copy of Survival of the Fixest! (Spoiler: You'll get a discount!)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Please note: Some of these designs may change, but if they do, they won't change much!

The oldest player starts the game as Judge. He or she reads a Dilemma and now everyone has to come up with their best survival plan. How? By using the items in your hand!


These dilemmas can get pretty crazy, so you’ll have to combine & modify your items (i.e. fix them together!) to make it out alive. Maybe you can use your hockey skate to sharpen your broom handle into a spear!

In the middle of the table, there are 3 additional item cards up for grabs. Better grab that canister of tear gas before your opponent does!

There are surprises built into the game to keep you on your toes. It wouldn’t be the game of resourcefulness without a real challenge!

After the 30 second timer runs out, everyone takes turns pitching his or her survival plan to the judge. Your plan can be ridiculous or realistic, or completely ridiculous - whatever you think the judge will like best.

After the judge has heard all the pitches, they pick the survival plan they like the best. That player survives the dilemma (while the rest of you sadly perish!) and also gets a point! 

The mantle of judge is passed on, and a new round begins!

The standard mode of play is best suited for 4-6 players. This works perfectly for your typical game night configuration - around the dining room table with friends or family! 

There's also Road Trip mode for  2+ players! It's a loose mode of play (think of Highway Alphabet or Would You Rather!) that gets you talking and laughing together! We've also seen this work for date night, no joke!

We call this Party Mode. To play with a large group, split players into pairs at the start of the game and play as you normally would, with one pair taking turns as the judge!

We call this Game Show mode, and it’s great for large groups! There’s a host who acts as the consistent judge, while teams of 3-5 compete in the way you might see trivia play out at your local brewery or rotary club!

We believed Kickstarter was going to be great for this project but we didn't end up reaching our goal. That's OK!

When you launch a campaign like this, you do all the research you can but that doesn't mean you're not going to miss a couple things.

Despite whatever we might want to go back and do differently, this campaign has taught us that people REALLY want our game. That's a big win!

We have a Plan B to bring this game to market. So if you're just finding out about us now or if you pledged and want to know how to get a game after all, head over to fixestgame.com so that we can tell you what we're up to.

To everybody who pledged in the campaign, thank you! We are deeply, deeply grateful! This isn't the last the world will hear of Survival of the Fixest.

Cheers!

Risks and challenges

Secret Level Entertainment has 5 years of experience in the entertainment industry. Even though this is our first game project, we've handled the publishing and fulfillment of music projects and book projects via Kickstarter, so we are well acquainted with all of the risks and problems that can arise during production of a project like this.

This campaign did not reach its goal, but we have a Plan B for bringing this game to market. Please visit fixestgame.com to learn more. Cheers!
