Kickstarter v2.0 & Expansions
We were asked, “Will the second project have the same KickStarter promos or different?”, a more than valid question. To explain briefly why that was asked - In case you missed it elsewhere this is the first of two of our KickStarter projects for Wasteland (intended to help us get art for the game). The next KickStarter will be (unless this one does phenomenally well) for actual production of the game. I know this brings up another interesting question, "What happens if the second project is not successfully funded?", which will be answered in the FAQ or another update (a link will be posted right here).
Let us begin by saying that we GREATLY appreciate all of our initial backers – you will not be forgotten. All backers of $25 or more (Combatant level) will receive the new promo cards and factions in our second Kickstarter (in addition to those from this KickStarter); we only ask that they pledge at any level ($5) in that new Kickstarter. Similarly, those pledging at the $75 level or higher will receive more goodies as well; again, we only ask that they back the second project as well. We will have some reduced cost rewards for our awesome original backers too! This would include any "upgraded" items as well. (If you bought a game for this project and we offer a jawesome Limited Edition copy in the next, you will be able to "upgrade".)
For a brief preview of whats to come, our second KickStarter project may have:
- Promo cards (more promo cards)
- Promo Areas (promo areas and perhaps the chance to have an Area designed by Backers in the game)
- Promo Factions (likely two more promo Factions)
- Promo dice (perhaps a set for each faction so you can choose your favorite)
- Promo Visionaries
- Mini expansions (a taste of the expansions to come and perhaps a Promo only expansion!)
- Potentially even more Factions
These aren't set in stone, but hopefully it shows where are heads are. All of those listed above will be different than those offered in this KickStarter as well. There are lots of other things we would like to do as well but haven't decided if they will make the cut. We have a TON of great ideas, but a lot of them hit the cutting room floor for now.
There is a lot that we weren't able to include in the game for its initial release, so there is already a lot floating around for future expansions. With each expansion we are hoping to build upon many of the existing aspects of the game with new content as well as add wholly new Zombie fodder!
Each expansion is intended to be a stand alone expansion (not requiring any other expansion to play) with the exception of the “War & Peace” and the “7 & 8 Player” expansions. Either the “5 & 6” or “7 & 8” may include enough from every other expansion as well... we aren't sure how we want to handle this yet (because we are NOT about short changing our supporters!). Oh, and these names are what we call them for reference amongst ourselves.
Agents & Mercs
Two new Factions, new Agents and Mercs
decks, new Areas, new Scenarios, new cards for the four main decks,
Merchants & Tech
Two new Factions, New Tech deck, new
Areas, new Scenarios, new cards for the four main decks, and more!
War & Peace
New Areas, additions to each of the
[Seven total] decks, Equipment, Pacts and Alliances, new Scenarios,
new Visionaries for each Faction, new Units, and more! (Will require
the “Agents & Mercs” and “Merchants & Tech”
expansions to get the full benefit of this expansion.)
New Areas, new Zombies, new Scenarios, new cards for the four main decks, Zombie player (along with one or more decks solely for the Zombie player), and more! (Thus adding one more player to the game!)
5 & 6 Player expansion
More areas, more cards for each of the four main decks, zombies, tokens, units, etc.
7 & 8 Player expansion
We aren't sure that we want the
desolate wastes to be this crowded... but it has been and is still
being discussed. Otherwise it is another +2 Player expansion of
Greatness exactly the same as the “5 & 6” Player expansion.
(Will require the “5 &6 Player expansion to get the full
benefit of this expansion.)
