Final Artwork is IN - Final round of editing near complete!
We're in the home stretch leading up to manufacturing now! On their advice, we're going to take time to make sure everything is correct NOW to avoid potential costly delays during the production process.
THE SPACE DOG IS HERE!
The final piece of artwork is now in; the Space Dog and his Cat Minions has arrived! Jared of Sanford Illustration has knocked it out of the park with all of the character illustrations and we're very grateful for his participation in this project!
Meet the feline minions - from left to right - Frenchie (aka French Fry), Thomas O'Malley, Rumble, Raspberry, Nicco, Iggy and Pooty.
Mascot Sir Charley of Barley's bark is worse than his bite but he has an increased hand limit (standard hand limit +1 per health remaining), and exceptional search ability and speed (the fastest of all playable characters).
Space Dog and his Minions are actually all our real life furry rescue friends here at I Will Never Grow Up Games and we're happy to have them in game (and happy with the early response people had about adding them to the game)!
FINAL EDITING ROUND
Although many files were already prepped and uploaded to the manufacturer, we've got the final round of editing for spelling, grammar and layout just wrapping up to ensure that we provide you with the best possible product we can! As a result, a few corrected files have been made and are almost ready to go.
I can't stress the importance of full size print proofs! Legibility issues were revealed with the Epic Encounters cards and thankfully that has been addressed prior to going to print!
We're almost there! Things have taken much longer than anticipated, but again we're still on track for on-time delivery!
The (almost final - pending spelling/grammar corrections) rule book for Boarding Party and both expansions (EPIC Encounters and Increased Crew) have been uploaded to Board Game Geek as well if anyone would like an advanced view.
Speaking of Board Game Geek, if you've got an account there we'd love it if you would become a fan of the game and maybe up vote some of the images. Once the games start arriving we'd love to see it in play on your table too!
Until next time, Cheers!
