Happy International Tabletop Day! New Stretch Goals
Today I demoed the current prototype of the game at Red Caps Corner in Philadelphia for International Tabletop Day (so sorry for the delay with this update). We had quite a few close calls and it was delightful to return and see that we’ve smashed through the $80k stretch goal. I think you all will be very excited about these next stretch goals:
Alternate Hunter Promo Card
This stretch goal unlocks an alternate art promo for the hunter class. This version of the hunter is a better scavenger than scout. His innate ability is to draw from any scavenge deck (regardless of what tile he’s on).
If you’ve played with the most up to date prototype, you may have seen that some cards ammunition spot is represented by a Fuel canister. It’s always seemed silly to put bullet tokens on these cards so by adding fuel tokens, we’ll be able to differentiate the ammo types and you’ll be able to place these on the van tile as you fuel up your getaway car.
New Tile: The Amusement Park
This abandoned place will call to you with it’s diverse resources, but beware because sticking around will cause you to lose yourself (and your cards) in the fun!
This Stretch Goal will unlock a community inspired apocalypse to be included as a Kickstarter Bonus for all backers. It will include approximately 30 cards with monsters, bosses and new missions. If this stretch goal is reached, it will be combined with the Scientist to create the first retail expansion of the game. The important thing is that you will decide which apocalypse is added:
Here is a general design overview of how these apocalypses will play:
Dinosaur: Dinosaurs have overrun the world thanks to some genetic missteps. The monster deck will be full of vicious predators and some defensive dinos as well. Raptors will viciously attack your survivors in packs but perhaps that next monster is a mighty Stegosaurus that will swing its tail and kill all the raptors in sight. Obviously we’ll have a T-rex as a boss card.
Kaiju: Enormous monsters are appearing from deep under the ocean and have decimated our cities and now roam the land as Gods. This scenario will be a little different where the monster card draws build up tension until a mighty Kaiju appears. These guys will have tons of health and be incredibly hard to take down. Think of it sort of like a deck of bosses.
Bugs/Arachnids: The bugs have infested our world! The basic bug enemies will be a bit squishy but they will trigger additional monster draws so you’ll face large swarms. Arachnids will spin webs that deplete your actions per turn, until you’re nothing but spider food.
