When we started Zpocalypse we set out to make a few hundred copies of a board game, the first ever for us. Many things have happened since then. One of the most important things we learned was to be as forthright as humanly possible with your backers. The second is that producing a quality product takes a LOT of time. We really wanted to have a few months where everyone got a chance to play our game and really know it before we started our next Kickstarter. Of course when we started we never planned for our level of success, or what that would mean for our time table. It's a lesson we have taken to heart going forward. However if we want to go forward, we can not wait to start our next Kickstarter if we want to deliver it to you in 2013.
That being said, we are pretty excited about Zpocalypse: Aftermath. Rather than start another expansion (and believe us we want to do that too) we listened to what players and backers wanted to make the game even better. The biggest comment we have gotten was, "Wouldn't it be great if you had fortification minis in this game?" We completely agree. To that end, Aftermath is a Kickstarter that would enhance your Zpocalypse game. The fortifications of course can also be used in any game. Also, we are introducing new military-based characters that fit into the world of Zpocalypse the board game, and will also be characters incorporated in our future RPG project.
Unlike our first project where we started with cardboard and ended with numerous miniatures and expansion packs, we've learned a lot about the manufacturing process. We now know to set realistic goals which can be made for both the backers and ourselves to make the entire process worthwhile.
We are pretty proud of all the work we've done to make this happen. Jed Wahl has worked with us to make some fantastic characters based on Ricky Casdorph's art. It's pretty awesome and we are so excited to move on to the next chapter of the Zpocalypse.
We thank you for all you have contributed, and hope you join us in our next adventure.
