A standalone sequel to the award-winning Sub Terra (2017), Inferno's Edge has players join a dangerous expedition into a volcanic temple, in search of a legendary artifact. Work together to find and unlock the inner sanctum, avoiding deadly traps, scorching lava and the temple's relentless guardians. But beware - the earth shakes beneath you, and you're running out of time...

We have a limited number of review copies that we will make available for free to those who want to preview Sub Terra II at no cost.

See below for the different pledge levels available on this campaign. We've tried to make everything as affordable as possible, putting together bundles that make the most sense for lots of different gamers.

To pledge for a particular level, simply select that level from the pledge menu. Your shipping will be added automatically based on your location.

All core game and expansion items will be available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Polish as fully printed items. Upgrades and other items that do not contain language dependent components will only be printed in English unless otherwise stated.   

Would you like Sub-stantially more Terra

See below for add-on options available during this campaign. To add something to your pledge, click the green 'manage your pledge' button and manually amend the pledge value to include the add-on amount.

Additional shipping may be needed for add-ons. Shipping is weight-based. See the shipping section for details and an interactive pledge calculator that will help you work out if you need to add any shipping (you can do this now on the campaign, but if you get it wrong, don't worry - we can sort it in the post-campaign survey).

When we ran the original Sub Terra campaign all the way back in 2017, we were met with an avalanche of support we could never have anticipated. Our backers were really excited about the character miniatures, but wanted some more for their horrors (the monsters in ST1). This spawned a backer art competition to determine the final horror sculpt, as well as a flash fiction competition, a selfie-off and more! Sub Terra's competitions were so popular, we thought we'd give you another chance to take part this time!

Check out the schedule for the exciting stuff to get involved in during the campaign below. All events will be posted as project updates.

 LIVE COMPETITION RIGHT NOW

The Horror, as illustrated by our amazing backer Juhana, then rendered into full colour and 3D by our creative team!

But wait, there's more than just that treasure to discover!

There's a bunch of ways that you can help to support Sub Terra II and get the campaign in front of as many people as possible.

Any good adventure needs a side quest, right?

You'll see from the top of the graphic a range of things that will help the campaign grow and help us to unlock more goals!

Every time we reach one of those goals, we'll add in another promo to the Kickstarter promo pack, meaning every backer gets more awesome Sub Terra II content.

Sub Terra has enjoyed international success in four languages, and we want to share the terror of Mt. Arima with as many people as possible!

Sub Terra II (and Sub Terra's reprint) will be fully printed in English, German, Italian, Spanish, French and Polish (you'll be able to choose your language in the pledge manager). Upgrades may only be available in English (as these do not contain language-dependent components).

We will provide PDF translations of the rulebook (the only part of the game that needs language translations) in Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Danish, Dutch and Portuguese (both European and Brazilian).

If we hit at least 50 backers from any country where we do not currently have a pdf or printed language option, we will introduce a pdf for that language.

If we hit at least 250 backers from any country in this way, we'll do a limited print of that language which you'll be able to choose in the pledge manager!

If we get 500 individual comments from different backers in the main comments section asking for one of the novelty languages, we'll do a pdf! One at a time team!

Tim has spent a huge amount of time with us over the last few years designing Sub Terra, Sub Terra II and all of their (6!) expansions, as well as helping out at various conventions and events - giving him some pretty spectacular insights into the design process. 

Like last time around, Tim’s written a series of ‘Designer’s Diaries’ to outline his thoughts on how this all came together. Read them below!

 Local game stores, board game cafes, organised play venues and other retailers and businesses form the backbone of our community, providing a space for all us gamers to play, discover new stuff, meet other gamers and more.

ITB owes a lot of its success to the wonderful people in stores across the UK, convention organisers and others that have supported us, and we want to make sure that they can be a part of this campaign too!

Retailers that take part on the campaign, just like individual backers, are taking a chance on us and what we're trying to do - and for that we're really grateful.

We have a range of options available for retailers to pledge for Sub Terra II and Sub Terra on this campaign, getting all the same stuff as backers, so that you can share the campaign with your local community that didn't get a chance to be a part of the campaign themselves.

For more information on what options are available to retailers, click the graphic below.

Below you will find the beautiful faces of the incredible team behind this, our biggest ever, project.

We're joined once more by the outrageous talent of the original team members Tim, Diana and David (and of course Jon!) but now we're back with a #SQUAD.

A massive thank you to Rose, the most dedicated, aggressively versatile and resilient developer I've ever met. Thank you to summer interns Heather and Leigh, the creative prowess of Tim, Diana, Marco, Tom and David, the videographic wizardry of Jon and Lawrence, the technical skill of Lewis and Helen and most importantly to me (Peter), the unending, stoic support of the real MVP, me mam, Diane. 

This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 950+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $400M raised between them.

Risks and challenges

*Game Design & Development*
All game design and development on Sub Terra II is complete, with a final validation round of public playtesting ongoing throughout the campaign. The two expansions are designed and developed and require a last round of playtesting before being complete. We've got one of the most dedicated and talented teams around, and we are more than confident that everything will be complete ready for a timely transition to the next stage of the process as well as being great fun!

*Artworking*
All art assets and all design assets required for the core game are complete, with the majority already ready for print. There's still a couple of bits left for the expansions, and a few sculpts left, all of which is scheduled for completion before the end of the campaign. Diana, Marco, Tim, and Tom are fast, effective and professional and are all dedicated to making this their best project yet on budget and on time.

*Pledge Management*
After the campaign is complete we will launch the backer survey, or 'Pledge Manager'. This will be using the service pledgemanager.com
The Sub Terra II PM page is already in progress, with completion in the next week or so, meaning it'll be ready almost immediately after completion of the campaign. We will leave the PM open until we begin freighting goods around the world from the factory in China. With any complex software platform, there's always the chance of something going wrong or someone making a mistake. We've used this platform for 4 years now, and have direct communication on a daily basis with the PM team to fix bugs on the fly.

*Print Preparation*
All files for the core game without any stretch goals applied are complete and ready for print. expansion and upgrade pack packaging is laid out and ready for final assets. Artwork required is minimal and all print assets are laid out ready for final assets where needed to minimise turnaround time to print.
The ITB team will be visiting Longpack in Shanghai for a site inspection and print preparation session for one to two weeks to ensure the print goes to plan, on time.

*Mass Manufacture*
Longpack games are our manufacturing partner for Sub Terra II and the reprint of Sub Terra. Longpack is an incredibly well-respected printing company based in Shanghai who we've worked with on NewSpeak, Crypt X, and now Sub Terra. They are driven, professional, honest and effective. Importantly they are realistic and open about timelines, giving us the information we need to communicate with you on changes to plans. Mass manufacture of board games is really complex and can be delayed as a result of suppliers, other production projects, machinery breakdown or anything else that can affect a large company like Longpack.
We've made sure that all the stretch goals are pre-planned, costed, communicated with the factory and worked out production-wise to ensure there are no snags.

*Freight & Fulfilment*
International freight can have a deep impact on the timeline, as there are so many factors that determine how long it takes a shipment to get from the factory. We've selected the best logistics partners in the world, who are both knowledgeable about the tabletop industry as well as professional and experienced in international logistics. We have predeveloped plans for freight around the world, with estimates of the proportion of total print to each region to make planning for partners easier. Fulfillment has been planned out with packaging and labeling to be complete by the end of the campaign. Fulfillment planning has taken into account all pledge options, shipping regions, and possible stretch goals' impact on size and weight.

*After-Campaign Care*
We now have a productivity platform that integrates all support emails, accounts emails, project mail, social media and more - meaning we can be far, far quicker and more comprehensive in responding to backer queries and issues. We will also be looking to hire a new customer service assistant as a full-time member of the ITB team should we reach a sufficient number of backers to warrant it, to allow for seamless service.
