Buffalo Bill Cody joins the fracas!
You cowpokes have unlocked some fantastic stretch goals. Thank you again for all of your support. Let's take a look at the latest additions to Western Legends.
Unlocked Stretch Goals
At $220k, you unlocked another component upgrade. All cards throughout the game (including the Fistful of Extras and the Good, the Bad, and the Handsome expansions) will now be 310 GSM.
When you pushed us past $240k, you unlocked something that excited a lot of people - including us! The first of our character-specific miniatures - Wyatt Earp. Wyatt Earp's character mini will be added to the Fistful of Extras expansion. This sculpt is still a work in progress, but the team at Pure Arts (Kemet, Inis) do incredible work, and Wyatt is going to look stunning when he's done. Which character-specific mini do you think we'll reveal next?
Since we hit $260k, you will get a NEW CHARACTER added to the Fistful of Extras expansion! You will now be able to build your legend across the Wild West as Buffalo Bill Cody. Buffalo Bill brings the character count in Western Legends to 16 (or 19 if you have the Good, the Bad, and the Handsome expansion).
William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody was an American scout, bison hunter, and showman. He fought for the Union in the Civil War, later becoming a scout for the U.S. Army. During the Indian Wars, he was given the Medal of Honor for gallantry. He earned the nickname "Buffalo Bill" after being purported to have killed 4,282 buffalo for Kansas Pacific Railroad workers. His exploits were immortalized in print, leading to the formation of his world-famous Wild West Show.
What's Up Next?
The next stretch goals will add replayability, another component upgrade, and a new weapon!
When we hit $280k, we'll add 4 more Story Cards to the Fistful of Extras expansion. These Story Cards will add replay value and more variation to what can happen to players as these stories are triggered.
At $300k, you will unlock a new weapon - the Peacekeeper! The Peacekeeper's ability can make it easier to climb the Marshal or Wanted track. We'll reveal its specific ability when you unlock this powerful gun. The Peacekeeper will be added to the Fistful of Extras expansion.
Then, at $325k, a new component upgrade will be unlocked. All punchboard in the game will be upgraded to 2mm thickness.
