Production update #1
The cogs of production have been set in motion!
As the original Posthuman and Defiant expansion are dropping from the skies onto welcoming backers, we have started the first phases of production. In this update we'll give you an overview of where we're at with that process.
Cards, punchboards and all
In the last couple of months we have been working on the final versions of the graphic design and layout of the cards, punch boards, rulebooks and storybooks for the base game and all the expansions and add-ons. The rulebook and card texts have been given an extensive edit by a professional rulebook editor. While we had an internal editor that did a pass on these we wanted to get an outside perspective of someone that has done hundreds of rulebooks and it was definitely worth the effort. The rest of the material has been through extensive in-house proofing, and final checks have also been completed by the manufacturer.
The storybook is polished and ready with 70 stories for the base game. A new addition to the storybook are the follower Traits. If the active player has a follower with the indicated Trait then it might trigger a different section of the story, either by giving the player an additional option to choose from or forcing the player to choose a particular option. A Clumsy follower might lead you into a trap for example, or a Violent follower might throw himself at a mutant before you have the chance to take a more tactical approach!
We are now waiting for the manufacturer to send us the digital proofs of the print files and masters for all the plastic components for us to check, iterate on and then give the go ahead for actual production to start. If all goes well, production should be completed by the end of May and you should be expecting to have Posthuman Saga in your hands in July.
-Till the next update, keep mutating!
