Story Goals, Team Versus and Group Pledges.
Survivors! This is a Broadcast from the Fortress!
Set up your antennas and listen up.
In this broadcast:
Story goals – A new feature for our Backers!
Team Versus – A new game mode!
Group pledges – get a discount on the game and shipping!
New Social Stretch Goal - Mutant Die! (You can shout that when you roll it)
We thought it would be a great idea to give you a taster of the Posthuman world and the narrative encounters in the game’s Story Book. So we tasked Daniel, our writer, to write a dedicated series of episodes for the KS that chain together and lead up to a grand finale. At the end of each episode we will ask you to make a choice - by popular vote in a linked Boardgamegeek poll - and this will determine what happens in the next episode (very much like the chain stories in Posthuman Saga).
Not only this though… we will also unlock story goals that add more content to your game of Posthuman Saga after each episode! These are very much like stretch goals that you unlock through your engagement with the story because of the decisions you make. Sounds like fun? We think so too!
The first Episode will be sent out tomorrow as an update and on BGG and you will have 3 days to vote. After which we will send out an update with the outcome and the unlocked content!
After a suggestion from Ludovic, one of our backers, Gordon got an idea for a competitive team mode for posthuman saga. We’re calling it Team Versus. You play co-operatively in a team sharing the same map and board section against another team of two. It’s the best of both worlds ☺. We have been testing it over the last few days and it’s a very different experience and a hell of a lot of fun!
More about this in some detail in the next Broadcast.
Some of you have asked us if we can give group discounts and we thought why not? If we can help you save a bit more we’ll do that. So we’re going to open a new pledge tier for groups of 5 and over for backers of the Mega Mutant All-in. This is the most popular tier so we’re just going to offer this. We will be giving you a 20% discount on the game price and a discount on shipping depending on the country and amount ordered.
Chris has been hard at work calculating estimates for shipping and we can estimate up to 50% savings on shipping to US, Canada, Europe and Asia and between 15% and 40% savings for the rest. The best savings will be on groups of 5 as this is the capacity of one shipping box. Anything in between may reduce the savings.
Once we reach 500 fans on BoardGameGeek, the old boring white D6 will mutate into this little scarred beauty. And if we unlock the other BGG stretch goal (subscriptions) for an extra Loot Die and an extra D6 then both D6 in the game will be upgraded to mutant dice!
(New die will be the same size as the old one)
