@B Adams - Yes, you will be able to do that in the BackerKit survey. As for beta testing, all members of the beta team will be invited to iOS/Android beta testing as well at the appropriate time. So if you want to beta test for that, you can pledge at that existing tier.
One, to confirm: There will be an option in backerkit to say "here is X extra dollars, please count them as X extra mobile backers (for I are legion!)"?
Two, to last-minute suggest: Is there any thought of having a mobile alpha/beta tier? Dunno about Android, but TestFlight should allow time limited test versions to be available to iOS testers. The folks doing the digital version of Evolution have made use of it.
@Jai - As the update says, we cannot offer keys directly for mobile versions of Aeon's End. Adding $1 to your pledge registers your support and will help make the mobile version come out sooner. It does not grant any access to the mobile version, which will be sold separately.
I didn't quite understand. Would adding a dollar to my pledge let me play mobile too? Or gotta buy the mobile version once out?
This is great news! I love playing games on my tablets / phones! Sign me up for 2!
I have a few other digital 'board' games I rarely play now, because they are JUST on steam. But I was playing catan, carcasonne, ticket to ride, small worlds... (Asmodee and Days of wonder games) at end of day on a tablet (Android) almost every [school] night cause that was what was convenient. When I sit down in front of a computer (Steam) its different, and I play Evolution, ogre, and Talisman very rarely now since I am not a in front of my gaming rig as often as I am just chilling with a tablet nearby. I am very much transitioned to be a mobile gaming experiences now. The experiences are only getting better over time. It's just another platform with a different input paradigm. And board game's work so well with touch paradigm imo since THAT is the natural analog with the IRL components... I am ecstatic to hear you are going into the mobile realm. Do not hesitate to put expansions as in app purchases. Seriously I purchase those things because the base games sell me on it. There is a right and wrong way to do mobile, especially with Tablet/phone device form factors. I just know that the day that comes out I am playing Aeons End on mobile for sure. It will probably displace all the others as my new end of day chill out goto game... Now you got my excited with the pre-hype!
@JJ - Yes, you will be able to specify that in the BackerKit survey after the end of the campaign.
If I’m not in the market for other add-ons, and I just pledge $5, can that be counted for 5 mobile backers?
So, what they're really saying is, "Buck Up!"
@Brian - We're not sure about that - we'll look into it though!
@A.D. - Of course, any extra content will be completely optional.
Can you add an option to turn off custom additions to the game? I would rather just play with the content from the physical games, to be honest.
I really love Aeons End so I'm glad to hear that a Mobile Version is also in the works. I do want to back at the full price but I'm more interested in the mobile version than PC since my PC isn't the best for gaming. Would there be anyway to back the Kickstarter to get the exclusive background and card backs for the mobile version? If so, I'll definitely fully back if that is possible. Thanks!
