All Stretch Goals Unlocked! The first of many THANK YOUs!
With over 24 hours left in the campaign, you guys piled into the Van and loaded up for the Apocalypse and picked up a sweet Army Ranger on your way. We have an absolutely perfect version of Maximum Apocalypse without bloat, and with plenty of room for growth in the future. It's all because of you guys and I can't express my gratitude and thanks enough.
Backers Get the First Expansion for FREESIES!
The Scientist, Community Apocalypse, and Army Ranger are going to get packaged up together in a tuckbox and will make up the first expansion of the game. It seems lame to call it the Kickstarter Expansion so I'm open to suggestions in the comments below but am thinking something like "Remnants of the Apocalypse" or "Stragglers of the Wasteland". Thoughts?
So What's Next?
Next we transition to making it all happen. In fact, I've already emailed my manufacturer to get a final quote and lock all the pricing in.
While we wait those pesky 2 weeks for the funds to get to us from Kickstarter, we will be finishing up a pdf of the rulebook for your feedback and then will finalize the mission cards. The rest of May and June will be spent getting the final art completed and files ready for production.
No more Stretch Goals but perhaps I can offer some peeks behind the curtain...
I don't want to throw in more stretch goals that will delay the project. As I've always stated, our intention is to get you this game well before May 2018. For fun I'm willing to unveil some of the characters, scenarios, and new mechanics that we are already working on behind the scenes, with the disclaimer that they are prototypes, not heavily tested, and may change completely if they prove to suck. We're offering a glimpse of a vague and distant possible future. I'll unveil a new idea/overview for every $10k that we go past the $125k goal. Any takers?
