Day 7: First week and $500k!

Posted by Kolossal Games (Creator)

Good evening, all! 

Quick daily update. Today marks the first official week of the campaign! We cannot thank you all enough for the support, the feedback, and the passion for Eclipse. What's more, we just crossed $500k!

2 new discoveries tiles were unlocked.

  • Ancient Might: At the end of the game, gain 1VP for each 3VP you have in Reputation Tile total.
  • Artifact Codex: At the end of the game, gain 1VP for each Artifact you control.

This is more brand new content that will be added to the Worlds Afar stretch goal content. For a thorough breakdown of what we have unlocked thus far, head to the campaign page toward the bottom of each pledge level graphic!

Next up for rewards, we have screen-printed bags at $525k and then the 24-page short story, which will contain 6 new illustrations! Here is a sample of what the bags would look like with the screen-printing!

A Couple Other Notes...

ICYMI: Toni from posted about the wash colors and is looking for your feedback. Join in here or share your thoughts in the comments below. 

Playmats: We have heard back on the packaging options for the playmat and are working through the logistics piece next. We hope to have the final pricing for you soon!

That's all for tonight! We will be back with more info and updates tomorrow!

      Hummm... how about a 3D printer file for a player board overlay that provides similar functionality to recessed player boards? This would be a lower cost stretch goal...

      I expected as much with the separation of the resource board, but it was worth asking. Thanks for the reply and congratulations on the milestone.

      Hi, Nicolas. Unfortunately we will not be having layered boards for this campaign.

      @Kolossal Lautapelit - Nothing against the bags but there's a building consensus that 2-layer recessed player boards would have made for a much nicer stretch goal. Of course, since the boards are two-sided, that would mean 4 layers (or maybe 3 layers would work?).

      Cool. Please don't fold the playmats for packaging. Serious Poulp did that with The 7th Continent, and mine came in permanently creased. Sad.
