Gothic Horrors are coming March 27th!
I wanted to start off this update with some exciting news, the next expansion for Maximum Apocalypse will hit Kickstarter on March 27th. This deluxe expansion will introduce 2 new characters, 2 new apocalypses, an insanity deck, day/night cycle, dividers for the Kaiju expansion, an expanded rulebook, new tiles, etc and much more of course as the game is stretched. I'll be sure to post a preview link for backers here once the page is ready. I'm really excited about the expansion and just got my butt whooped by the Cultist/Cthulhu set last night. Here is a quick FAQ but feel free to ask more questions in the comments below:
Will the Core Game and Kaiju Rising expansion be offered as part of this Kickstarter?
Yes, the Core Kickstarter edition will be available along with the Kaiju expansion.
How can I get the Kickstarter Play Mats?
We will have them available and do another limited print run of them through this Kickstarter.
Will there be a big deluxe box to fit everything in?
Not yet. We're already in pre-production on the next standalone expansion. We plan on offering a big box with that campaign.
Are you fixing/changing/revising the rules?
We are going to offer an expanded rulebook with this expansion rather than an insert to go over all of the new game additions. Hopefully we can address any rule clarification questions that we've seen over on BGG. If you have any burning questions, rule clarifications, etc - I advise that you ask them over on BGG if they're not already asked in the FAQ that was put together over there since we are actively working on a draft of the new rulebook now.

ShipNaked/Unicorn Games (AU/NZ)
Aussie backers definitely seem to be on a bit of a delay. If you haven't received a shipment notification email or contacted ShipNaked and/or have a problem with your shipment, it does not hurt to contact them directly at https://www.shipnaked.com/help/. If for some reason ShipNaked can't locate your order, they will contact me and I will take care of it immediately.
I am really frustrated with GamesQuest. The last email that they responded to I sent on 2/22/18 and got a response on 3/1/18 (about a week). I have several more emails and questions that have gone unanswered. I did some digging online in other Kickstarter/Publisher groups and have learned that they have been overwhelmed (which is probably why they sent the games out without play mats even though they waited to start shipping until the play mats arrived at the depot). I've heard they are overwhelmed for primarily two reasons: first, they're fulfilling for CMON and this little game called Rising Sun. This issue is compounded because I've heard they are also changing/upgrading their warehouse/shipping software. Unless you filled out the PledgeManager late in 2018, GamesQuest has your order information and you should have your games so I implore you to open a support ticket with them: https://gamesquest.freshdesk.com/support/home and select "Rock Manor Games" as the publisher/creator. They will not respond quickly to this ticket but hopefully if they see a lot of issues under the Rock Manor Games tag I can get their attention.
