Two New Companions and Some Mode No One Wanted

Did we really need to stoop solo?

Yes. Yes we did. 

For those who may have missed it:

SOLO!? YOLO!!
SOLO!? YOLO!!

Pretty much speaks for itself: when this community pushes this campaign past $500k, we will be adding Solo Adventure mode to every copy of the Leaders & Alliances expansion! And we've gotta be honest here - we are incredibly excited about this! 

Those of you who took part in the most recent livestream will remember us saying that giving solo mode the diligence it deserves is a big deal for us, and the funding level we've associated it with was chosen accordingly, but we believe this community will have no problem reaching that level of success and unlocking this content! The call has gone out - time for us all to rise up and answer!

We've been elated as we've watched the joyous reactions pour in all day and are right there with you. The more we thought about building an adventure mode for this game, compared notes, debated ideas; the more we realized just how primed for a solo experience this big modular sandbox-y game really is and we could not possibly be more excited for what it has become and what it is adding to the Leaders & Alliances experience!

Thank you all for expressing your passion and excitement. This has been something many of you have been lovingly clamoring after for years and we are so excited to be able to deliver a return on that great attitude. This is such an amazing group of people. Appreciate each other - there is special stuff going on here.

Your winged escapades are proving to be incredibly rewarding as you have not one, but two brand new companions about to be added to the Community Promo Pack! All that's left is voting on the abilities and names you've proposed! We have to warn you though, there are some incredibly great options in there, so prepare yourself before entering. We are going to have a very hard time deciding between these.

We know there are quite a few of you who have been looking forward to catching up on The Outpost Podcast before episode three lands next week but were waiting for the show to hit Spotify. Your moment has arrived. We are incredibly pumped to share the next episode with you. We recorded in a flurry yesterday before rushing across town where we arrived at Marc's house about five minutes before launching the livestream, but knew even in those zany moments that it is quite possible we've found that thing people call "the groove." 

Come - join us in The Barn. It is, at times, exactly as weird as that sounds. 


Well done fam. We're nearly nearing the half-way point of this campaign, yet it feels like you are just getting started. Let's spill some of your passion, heart and enthusiasm out into the wild and show the people out there just what an amazing community this is.

      I currently don't own Vindication. The Solo Adventure shows the original Boulder Hulk mini - does that mean we need to purchase the add-on for it or is it included in one of the pledge levels? I'm just confused as to why it is pictured if it's not included in one of the normal pledges. Thanks!

      Woah, this is crazy! Both the names I suggested are on there. Illuria, the Mirage and Bracca, the Tactical. And they're popular!

      Really excited about the solo mode.
      I was following the project along and waited to see when this stretch goal would finally appear!
      Let's unlock it!!!

      I think all 3 abilities should be on 3 amazing new companions, never seen the vote so close....plus secretly hoping mine wins lol

      I'm with you Andrew - this was definitely the hardest time I've had seeing abilities pass by.

    6. Andrew Apgood on

      Also if those abilities don't make it onto this card, I hope they can be used else where in the future.

    7. Andrew Apgood on

      I really like the 1st and 3rd ability options for the second companion. The first one has a cool thematic feel. Having control and influence over an area giving you knowledge, like you have people reporting information back to you. And the third ability would be a cool combo with Rho, the Illuminated. Using your companions to improve your influence blocks. But I think there would need to be a different way to get influence on his card other than just activating him. Or maybe he could be activated using influence from other companions. I'm not sure if that would be too strong of an ability, but I bet there's a way to balance it if it is.

      I ask because while it's a great addition to the game, solo mode isn't something our group would ever use, but a cooperative adventure mode is, so if there's any plans to fashion this inna way that works cooperatively, that would be fantastic!

      So, this begs the question, if there's going to be a solo mode, then is there any plans for a cooperative mode?

      Don’t worry Patrick, Adventure Mode sticks to the theme of the game :-)

      is the solo mode only fighting against Ronak? it feels bad with the theme of personal enlightenment and self discovery to have the game finish in a boss fight like all dungeon crawlers
