New Add-Ons & Reward Levels, Dresden Files Crossover Event, Music Live Stream, and More!
Holy kitchen-sink update Wraith! There’s so much happening today, so strap in and check out all the news that’s fit to print! Let’s start with a quick funding update.
As of this writing, we have raised over $67,500. We’re halfway to the next Squish Goal™, but more importantly, we’ve crossed 2,000 backers! At our current rate, we need less than 400 more backers to be fully funded. So tell your friends and spread the word! See the bottom of this update for direct links to share on social media.
Aside from bringing in new people, another way to help the campaign succeed is to give all you wonderful supporters more cool things to back! That brings us to...
Curses, Foiled Again!
When it’s all said and done, there will be more than 100 Heroes and Hero Variants in Sentinels of the Multiverse, and Greater Than Games has created alternate versions of all of them with brand new artwork! But that’s not all, Greater Than Games has also created oversized Villain cards with great alternate art as well. And these will all be available on the tabletop as special collector's edition foil cards (thanks to the recent OblivAeon Kickstarter).
“But Handelabra,” you say, “what if I want to use these alternate hero and villain cards in the video game?”
“That sounds like a great idea!” says we.
Today we are announcing two new Add-Ons for Sentinels of the Multiverse: The Video Game! They are the Digital Foil Hero Collector’s Pack and the Digital Foil Villain Collector’s Pack.
When you’re setting up a game, these collector’s packs will allow you to choose which hero cards or villain card you want to play with:
- Classic Artwork (the original cards you know and love)
- New Artwork (heroes from the 5th Anniversary Foil Hero Collection, and villains from the Complete Foil Oversized Villain Collection)
- Foil Artwork (foil versions of the new artwork, digital preview coming soon)
Each pack will be $5 on their respective stores, and they will be released simultaneously across all stores later this year. Just like a Season Pass, as we add new content to the game, these packs will get the new cards added to them for no additional charge.
In multiplayer, everyone will get to see which card you chose to play with, even if they don’t own the collector’s pack. If the Team Leader of a game owns the Collector’s Pack and chooses a foil Villain card, then everyone is playing against the foil Villain for that game!
For Steam players: Click this link, or click the blue “Manage” button in the top right by your pledge amount. Then click the blue “Change your pledge” button to change the amount. You can add the Collector’s Packs by adding $5/each to your pledge ($10 for both). At the end of the campaign you’ll be able to tell us exactly how to allocate the extra amount. You can add extra Steam keys or other products this way, too! Learn more in Update #1.
For Google players on Android: We’re creating several new reward levels that will allow you to get the Collector’s Packs as part of your pledge. Check out the new SHINIEST ANDROID WE NEED, QUICKEST, SHINEST ANDROID WE NEED, and SUPER-SCIENTIFIC ANDROID COLLECTOR reward levels on the main page. Google Play promo codes are limited so we cannot offer them as an add-on.
For our super-duper collector backers: Both SUPER-SCIENTIFIC COLLECTOR levels now include the Digital Foil Hero Collector’s Pack and the Digital Foil Villain Collector’s Pack for no additional charge.
Dresden Files Crossover Live Stream!
Sharp-eyed Sentinels fans probably noticed that one of our beloved Sentinels made his way into the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game as a stretch goal 2 weeks ago. On April 25th it was revealed that Ra would be jumping multiverses to make an appearance in the latest game from Evil Hat Productions.
If you have questions about the crossover, the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game, Evil Hat or anything else, why not ask Fred Hicks himself? Well you can, because he’s joining John and Jeremy on #SentinelsLive tonight at 7 pm Eastern!

Watch Jean-Marc create the brand new Villain Victory Theme song for the Mini-Pack 3 Villain: Wager Master.
