Thank you to each and every metallurgist who backed METAL!!! You are now part of something truly unique and we cannot wait to fire up the...umm...fires. Literally!

Once we get into the new year, we will send out links to BackerKit (our pledge manager) and provide lots of updates as METAL is made. Until then, feel free to ask us questions or make requests around what you want to see in the pledge manager.

And again, thank you all so much!

GOLDEN MALLET UNLOCKED...and more!

Hello Metallurgists!

We have unlocked the Gold Mallet! This makes us so so happy! METAL is almost everything we had hoped it would be...except for those pesky unique ball finishes. The team has been discussing what is best for backers and for the game, and we have decided to do this.

 

Ultimately, the team wants METAL to be the best it can be, and we are comfortable spending more than originally planned to ensure your game is perfect. Now all backers will be getting the game for $35 ($5 off MSRP), complete with the Golden Mallet and Unique Ball Finishes no matter where the campaign lands.

Spread the word online and let's get METAL into more hands! Mainly so everyone can get stronger by lifting the game.

ONLY 10 HOURS LEFT! AHHH!!!!!

MALLET CLOSER NOW! + Walkthrough video

Hello Metallurgists!

We have made a very important decision about a very tiny object. The mallet will now unlock at $25k!

We took a close look at METAL both with and without the mallet, and determined the game is better with it in the long run. So now we are insanely close to getting it! But we need your help. Use the image and links below to spread the word of METAL far and wide.

 


You can also share this URL in other places. It redirects directly to the Kickstarter page.

With your help in this final push, we can make METAL the best it can be...and the heaviest it can be!

WALKTHROUGH

Want to see METAL in action? Now you can! Jordan and Jon from Lay Waste setup shop in the Boston Apple Store (on their floor!) to make a video for everyone. Give it a look!

 
Thank you all for being a part of this weird, heavy, badass thing we have created. We are so happy to be the first game in the Material Series and can't wait to see the rest!

Kickstarter Live and PAX Unplugged

Hello Metallurgists!

We have a METAL Prototype!

KICKSTARTER LIVE TOMORROW at 1pm Eastern.

Phew! We just got back from a fun (and tiring) weekend of PAX Unplugged. Both the Lay Waste Games and Jordan Draper booths were going nonstop all weekend and lots of folks saw METAL in person!

And yes. That is right. We have prototype copies of METAL in our possession and we will be showing it off tomorrow on Kickstarter Live! Head over to the campaign page to submit questions in advance of the live session :)


While these are just demo pieces, they felt amazing, and now we know exactly what changes need to be made in order to make METAL feel perfect! The reception for the games was stellar, and now we are working on editing the gameplay video with Jordan.

The Lay Waste booth was also showing off our next game Life Siphon, and of course playing lots of Human Era, Dragoon, and Heads Will Roll.



If anyone has any questions about METAL, drop them in the comments. And thank you all! See you tomorrow :)

Hello Metallurgists!

We did it! METAL is going to be a real thing! AHHHH!!! Thank you all from the bottom of our cold, metallic hearts. Jordan's might be made of sugar actually. Nick's too. Anyway, I think we can all agree that a game made entirely of metal is both amazing and absurd. But guess what? You are all getting a copy, no matter how crazy it is :P

Now...onto the stretch goals. We have two lined up. First is unique finishes on each ball, which is going to bring more glorious metal variety into the game.


And of course we had to bring back the golden mallet! Let's keep this metal train rolling! Wait...aren't all trains metal? Is saying metal train redundant? Or are there non-metal trains? If you know of a non-metal, normal sized train, please post in the comments. This is important.

BLACK FRIDAY/CYBER MONDAY

A number of backers have been asking about getting our other games as add-ons for METAL. We are still working out those details, but if you don't want to wait, we have a little treat we announced today on social media.


Just click here and use GOLDEN at checkout.

Since METAL isn't shipping until next year, we thought some of you might want to utilize this deal. If not, we are confident we can get our games as add-ons into this campaign. Just hold tight for more details :)

And again, thank you all so much for being part of this campaign. Enjoy your weekend!
