Greetings Knights!

You amaze us with your unending engagement and support. All this results in more and more Backers joining the project, lots of Facebook Likes, as well as new Fans of the game’s BGG page. We can’t thank you enough and despite the weekend we keep working hard on new ideas regarding the campaign.

Not so long ago, you managed to unlock Doctor Feng, the Scientist, the 9th character in the Stretch Goal path. If you add 3 more knights from the optional buys, you end up with 12 tough survivors to challenge whatever roams the wastelands.

We now have over 500% of the initial funding goal, with impressive $200,000 behind us, over 2400 comments, and almost 3100 great Backers. We feel such a big crowd of determined knights will brave the Waste and reach more Stretch Goals in the following days!

There are 17 unlocked Stretch Goals and every one of them enriches your copies of the game with valuable content. Yet, we are still struggling for more! We are very close to 4000 Likes on our Galakta Games fan page, and with that the Community will design a new enemy card. Our artists are ready to put their talents into work and turn your ideas into some post-apocalyptic horror! Regarding the BGG game page – with over 800 Fans you are getting closer to 1000, and that means you will get another tool of destruction for your knights – the Painsaw!

 
Ahead of us is yet another SG – a completely new Adventure Plot, with accompanying 2 Special Cards, Ramparts Marker, and around 100 new narrative entries, giving you a chance to find a besieged community and prove your courage! Considering your support until now, we feel you will unlock it in no time!

Our journey through ruined Australia will last for 10 more days. When we started the campaign, we did not realize how great the power of the KS Community is. We thank you very much for every comment and help. We hope you will reach the finale with us and start your own journeys once you get the game.

See you in the Waste!

      @Leo Borg There should be enough time for it. We don't think you need to worry.

      @Game Inquisitor Thank you for the comment! We will work on the covers to make them more climatic.

      @Galakta: Then it's just fine. Just wanted to check that I would have time to get in more money for the shipping ;)

      The curly font on the titles of the adventure guides doesn't seem to vibe well with the feel of the game. I get that maybe you guys are going for something similar to the 50's throwback graphic design elements peppered throughout the fallout universe, or even also used similarly by Martin Wallace's recent game 'Hit Z Road', but the curly font on the adventure guide covers seem leave them feeling a bit out of place, like they need something a bit more than just curly fonts to work. Maybe replacing the curly main titles with the bold shredded font from most everything else in this game, along with making the cover subtitles curly, but also italicized would work better so at least it feels more like the excited sci-fi movie trailer titles of those throwback 50s times would help. Throwing in some faded bombshell pin up girl art also wouldn't hurt. 😁

      @Leo Borg These are the technicalities we need to work out, it really differs depending on the campaign. More experienced publishers usually offer a quicker PM start (a month maybe after the campaign is funded) with the PM active also for a month or so. As this is our first campaign we may need more time to set up the PM, but rest assured we are looking into the best offers regarding the PM. Once it's up you should easily have at least a month to fulfill it. But please be aware that our logistics team is working on this. We will inform all Backers in detail on how this will work in a couple of days.

      5th player would be a great option since some groups (like mine :D) constist of 5 ppl. I would love to get it even as an addon. Also having plastic cars miniatures would be really awesome!

      @Galakta Games: How long do you think the pledge manager will be open after the kickstarter campaign is over?

    8. Leo Borg on

      So far we have come in such a relatively short time! Looking very much forward to the game.

      Well, I'm totally won over by this campaign and by Galakta. Stopped just sort of going too far with the paid add-ons and do seem to genuinely listen to the community. Would have /would still like to see a discount for an add-ons bundle and obviously people are still waiting for language updates, but it does seem like Galakta are trying their best.

      @Christian Bedard The 5th player matter - we are considering this option. Theoretically, it is easy just to add 5th knight and play, but at this point we wish to cut downtime as much as possible and keep many players engaged actively in the game at once. Plus the adventures are streamlined in many ways depending on the player count and adding another player means we have to add a lot of narrative / cards. But we know you wpuld like to see this option in the game, so we are working on it. In a couple of days we should know more how to make it work well.

    11. Galakta Creator on

      @Andrei Badea We made assessments regarding this idea. At this point it is somewhat costly and we want to keep the prices on a reasonable level. However, we keep this option in mind, maybe for some later stage of the campaign or the PM level.

      @Jay Pershaw Thank you! We must do our best considering how great the Community is.

      Will the rules support a 5th players?
      After all we now have 12 tough survivors. ;)
