Risks and challenges

Every project has risks. Most risks can be mitigated with careful planning, collaboration, experience, and communication. Others are just out of your control to prevent.

We have experience navigating a successful Kickstarter campaign that delighted our backers with the end result. We’ve been testing Illimat for a year, are near completion in the art & design process, and have collaborated with our manufacturer to reduce risks associated with missed production timelines. Although we are a small independent company, we have great partners that allow us to scale service and fulfillment to meet the needs of our backers worldwide.

Although we cannot control all risks, we can control how we communicate them to you. Part of being a backer for Illimat means that you have a front row seat for the last phase of making and delivering this wonderful game. As such, we’ll be transparent with you on issues as well as celebrations.
