GATEFALL CHAPTER ONE: FANTASY VS POST-APOCALYPTIC

$62,158

1,911

 Gatefall is a strategic miniatures game of tactics, deck building, and resource management created by Jack Dire, the creator of Superfight, Red Flags, Blank Marry Kill, and You've Got Problems.

In the game, a rift has opened between worlds, causing a war between very different kinds of characters.

Players will take control of either the fantasy or post-apocalyptic team, and will use action points to move their figures and defeat enemy characters for victory points. Characters respawn when they are defeated, and can even "tag in" a new character from the same team (like one of the Kickstarter exclusive characters) while respawning.

A two player game will take around 60-90 minutes.

The game board is modular, which will allow you to play with 3 or more players (with the  purchase of a pack of differently-shaped rift boards), and will allow future expansion teams to fight these original two teams. The image below shows these rift boards, as well as the board for Chapter Two's sci-fi team. Spoiler.

A currently-highly-experimental arena mode is also being developed to allow three or more players to fight with one character in a battle royale setting.

The figures in Gatefall are enormous, making them a ton of fun to play with, paint, and look at. Penny is roughly the size of a moose in a typical D&D scale.

Peanut butter and Warhammer mini (bottom center) for scale. These are prototype resin 3D prints made at low resolution to test scale. The final product will have better detail and color.

Each character has a unique passive ability they can use immediately, AND a unique special ability that they can unlock.

Characters can be customized with unique upgrade paths to let you boost what you need when you need it. 

Gatefall is great for all kinds of different play styles. You can streamline your deck to beat your opponent with the number of actions you have available, upgrade your characters to move less but hit harder and smarter, equip them with weapons that boost abilities beyond upgrades, or a combination of any and all strategies.

Backers will receive TWO EXCLUSIVE FIGURES with their orders: Seline the sorcereress for the Fantasy team, and Piggy for the Wasteland team.

Backers will receive one copy of Gatefall AND the TWO EXCLUSIVE KICKSTARTER CHARACTERS, Seline and Piggy.

The game will have an estimated retail price of $55, and expansion figures will cost around $12. That means backers will get $79 worth of product for $39. Unless you consider Kickstarter exclusives priceless. Then you are getting infinite money worth of product for $39.

To make the game available to as many people as possible and as a thank you to this community for your support over the years, I have decided to make this $39 price (which was the former early bird price) available to everyone throughout the entire campaign.

If you want more than one copy, simply at $39 for every additional copy you'd like! 

I Kickstarted my first game Superfight in 2013, then went on to create Red Flags, Blank Marry Kill, and You've Got Problems.

Gatefall has been in development longer than all of those games. I got the idea for it a decade ago. I built the first prototype in 2011, and then coded the first playtesting AI in 2012. This game has been on my mind for a long time, and I was very fortunate to meet the very talented Alexei Konev who could sculpt and illustrate these characters.

Shipping will be calculated when your game is about to ship (months from now), and will be charged at that time.

These figures are huge, so the box is likely to be huge. Estimated shipping in the US will be $10-$15.


International shipping estimates:

CAN: $15

AUS NZ: $20

Rest of the world, with some exceptions if regulations or other factors interfere (in which case you will of course be reimbursed): $50

Risks and challenges

This will be the fifth game I create, but it will also be the first miniatures game. That brings new challenges as I partner with new manufacturers. I have been in constant contact with the manufacturers, and have reached a point where I am comfortable with the process and what to expect.
