Risks and challenges
Hexy Studio specializes in sculpting and producing gaming miniatures, as well as in game art and graphic design. By preparing all of the visual assets for the game ahead of time we were able to eliminate any risk of possible delay due to delayed art or graphic design.
Star Scrappers Cave In will be printed in Poland, which provides us complete control of each step of production. The manufacturer specializes in board games, and has not only a lot of experience in this field, but also a flawless record. We have already received samples from the factory, and we are certain that you will be satisfied with the production quality of Star Scrappers: Cave-In.
As with any project consisting of multiple steps (production and shipping), some delays are possible, but we have already accounted for them, and built our fulfillment plan in accordance. Nonetheless, unforeseen production or shipping difficulties may occur, but with complete control over art, design and production, we believe that only the worst case scenario might actually delay the game, in which case it would arrive to you 3 to 5 weeks later than planned.
We aim to satisfy our fans and backers, so if you have any questions about the project, be sure to comment, ask us via a Kickstarter private message or via email at firstname.lastname@example.orgLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
