Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy

$958,792

 Eclipse Second Dawn for the Galaxy is the updated core game of the space opera masterpiece from designer Touko Tahkokallio and publisher Lautapelit.fi. 

Eclipse is a "4X" game where players will command a human or alien species that explores, expands, exploits, and exterminates their way to victory. Over 8 rounds, each player will select actions to achieve their goals, carefully managing resources, engaging in epic battles with one another and the Ancients that lie in wait. Only one will guide the galaxy toward the second dawn.

This new edition features new components and thoughtfully revised content, incorporating material from former expansions to create the best possible updated version of the game. For more information about these revisions, click here.

Please click on your desired reward level to see the shipping cost for your region. Every backer is important to us, regardless of location, but the reality is that shipping is very expensive and is a cost we all need to share. To offset this, while remaining fiscally responsible, we have included a small discount on ALL shipping, but no shipping is free.

This campaign includes Customs-Friendly delivery to the US, Canada, the UK, and the EU. Customs-Friendly means, if you live in any of these regions and have any additional charges for receiving your package, simply email kickstarter@kolossalgames.com a copy of your customs receipt and we will reimburse you via PayPal. Note: If your country is not in one of the above-mentioned regions, we cannot guarantee customs friendly shipping in these areas. (For example, Norway & Switzerland are not in the European Union.)

We have adjusted rates for the following countries: Macao, Australia, China, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Norway, New Zealand, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Taiwan, Ukraine, Vietnam, and Hong Kong. If you live in one of these countries, please choose the desired pledge level with the title "adjusted shipping" included. 

Please note: While the U.S. is customs-friendly, there is a small possibility that tariffs for the U.S. are something that could happen in the future. This would be new for the U.S. and if it does come up we will address the impact in an update.

Risks and challenges

While Eclipse is our sixth Kickstarter project from Kolossal Games, our team has years of experience with publishing games. We have an impeccable track record of successfully delivering previous Kickstarter projects to thousands of supporters in a timely fashion--if not sooner. Our commitment to building a strong, supportive community around Kolossal Games will enable us to also deliver this project on time and with the highest quality possible.

That said, there are always complexities and considerations in a project of this scope that may cause delays. There are many steps in the process of manufacturing and fulfilling a game, many of which involve partnerships. Through careful and thorough planning, common mistakes can be avoided. However, possible delays can occur from circumstances beyond our immediate control. If such an issue is encountered, our team will adapt and no corners will be cut to course correct as needed.

Our greatest obstacle is simply the funding capital to manufacture such an ambitious product of the highest quality capable. Your contribution makes this a reality!
