Second Day, Second Dawn

Posted by Kolossal Games (Creator)

Good evening, backers. 

What better way to end our day two than with a summary of what you all have helped to unlock! As mentioned in the update earlier today, we will continue to work on things like shipping, updating backers as the information comes our way. 

First up, we unlocked new discovery tiles!

Next, we unlocked 4 guardian sector hexes, guardian ship tokens, and two guardian blueprints!

If you head to the main campaign page, you will see new rewards have been spoiled, including the guardian miniatures! We are currently in the process of amending future stretch goals to match our funding cadence as well as add more content to Worlds Afar.

Thanks again for all the support on this campaign! We will be back in the AM to answer questions and share any new insights we have regarding shipping and other topics.

      @JJ Lee: but the $100 per backer is the wrong calculation. Trying to calculate how much money per backer is available now that they have reached their minimum goal is hopeless if you don't know the details (which means without knowing how much less is 1 game going to cost them because of the higher quantity of games that are produced). Should be at most a few percent price reduction, not a ~50% price reduction as you seem to assume.

      @Adrian -- Dark humor maybe lol. I wasn't saying $100 per backer meant all of that went to stretch goals. Just that it is a lot of money, and the stretch goals have been paltry so far. There is time for that to change of course.

      @JJ Lee: you are forgetting in your calculation that the cost of producing the game is not fixed to the funding amount. If more people back than the minimum they calculated with, more games will have to be produced. Of course with more games produced the cost per game will be reduced, but you seem to assume at some minimum number of copies, each additional copy can be produced for free and all surplus money can be put into stretch goals. But maybe I misunderstand and it was intended as humor :)

      @Kolossal I still haven't seen an answer to My question in the comments section: Why does my shopping say 65€ but Finland is according to your shipping 20€? I live on an Island group that belongs to Finland, the distance between my hometown and the capital is less than 300 km... But THE game looks awesome!

      @rendersolo -- By overfunding by about $190000 and counting, Kolossal has added just 12 tiles and tokens (counting each guardian token individually) to Worlds Afar. Not sure that justifies excitement just yet. (Dividing $190k by 1873 backers slated to receive Worlds Afar is about $100 per backer -- those are some expensive tiles.) The upcoming SGs are less stingy, fortunately.

      I have never played Eclipse before.
      Can you please include info about what these things are?
      What is great/exciting about these tiles and hexes?
      How do they change or enhance gameplay?
      What is the story/history behind it?
      Were they a part of the 1st edition expansions? Or completely new?
      If they are changed from 1st edition, how and why are they changed?
      Why did Touko bring these into existence?
      Give us newbies some context so we can appreciate and get excited about these stretch goals.
