Just A Bit More Madness

Greetings Lovecraft lovers!

Well, things have certainly picked up since the 48 hour notifications went out! We’ve now unlocked absolutely everything… or have we? *insert mischievous laughter*

Ahem. Ok, yes, we have unlocked absolutely everything, but because you’re all so awesome and we’ve raised much more than $150k, you’re going to get just a bit more.

First off, we’re going to add some UV coating to parts of the game board, which was talked about as an option way back toward the beginning of the game.

Next, we are going to screen print the Necronomicon symbol on top of each Cult’s Summon Track markers for some added flair.

Finally, everyone’s getting another Monster for the beastly menagerie. This Monster is just a little bit different from the others - it’s so tiny that it won’t need a miniature. We’re talking about the Insects from Shaggai, or the Shan!

The Shan are tiny alien insects that merge one of their 3 brains with the human brain, taking over a person’s actions and leaving them confused for days or weeks after. The Shan typically use humans for building things the insects might need for their nefarious plots. Of course, in Fate of the Elder Gods, perhaps you can coerce the Shan into helping you carry out your nefarious plots against the other Cults!

Finally today, we have a short video play-through of the solo version of Fate of the Elder Gods. In the video, Darrell shows how to play the game on Expert Mode - and gets a bit of a comeuppance from the powers of good in Arkham. The great thing about the solo mode is that the difficulty can be adjusted very easily, providing a leisurely few minutes of play, or a heart-pounding roller coaster of destruction. It’s your choice!

And that’s that for today. We cannot thank all of you enough for all the excitement and support. We hope these final few surprises make you all happy, because you’ve certainly warmed all of our cold, cultist hearts.

      Neato! I can't wait to play! Sorry if this info is available somewhere I haven't looked, but what changes in the different difficulty levels of the solo variant?
