Have a question?
Just in case anyone is still checking here... I purchased a rather large amount of GA stuff from HBS when they wrapped up support of the game. I'm selling it off at HUGE discounts, so if you're looking to add to your collection please check out my sale at http://clixaccessories.com/GAsalepage.htm
I would love to see a postmortem from HBS so that other creators could learn how to avoid the mistakes that were made in this project.
I highly suggest checking out the Golem Arcana forums to follow along with how HBS is exploring with members of the community ways to provide a lifeline for the game ^_^
After today's news that you will no longer be even SUPPORTING this app going forward, I am NOT a happy camper...
@marc: yeah, i actually AM registered there but unfortunately i cant get to those sites at work, which is where i do most of my perusing :)
@Slyde - Time to register at the website/community forums
Jup, back up again
It was down earlier, but its back up now.
Is the website down?
I can't reach http://golemarcana.com/
i really miss the days of coming here in the morning and catching up on the latest GA news.... :(
the pic was kinda small and grainy on my phone... i didnt see any other golems that didnt look familair, but i'll give it a better look tonight...
Not just a new Colossus, but new Zikia and Urugal golems :D The Colossus looks like a giant horned terror with tusks and massive fists from what I can make out. Exciting stuff!
anyone else see that picture HBS posted on facebook?
If my eyes didnt deceive me, i thought i saw a new colossus in there!
Anyone know any info?
@Slyde...nope, no indication of upcoming features.
@Peter... I agree. The lack of Windows support is just a huge missed opportunity, IMO.
i dont frequent the official forums as much as i should... have they mentioned what the next upcoming feature are for the app? I know team play was being worked on, and im still REALLY keeping my fingers crossed for Colossus (and ALL golem) A.I.
@hair10... I post as Paranoid Coyote on the forums :) Just searched and found the thread in the emissaries forums. That's not encouraging.
I'm very frustrated that they implemented a $750k stretch goal (living fiction) before fulfilling the base funding promises.
@Peter... We were just told on the official forums (if you're not checking there, you really should be!) that it won't be before GenCon. Yeah, I know, I'm not happy about it either. :(
@HBS... What's the word on the Windows app? It's been quite a while since any update.
@Matthias... you should probably email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey Brian, I'm from Germany and still waiting for my second wave delivery. Could you please give me an update on that? Thanks a lot.
Sweden! I knew we had a Scandinavian in our ranks...and at least 2 in Germany. I mean, it'll be up to the incomparable John (who loves getting new emissaries from all over), but I should think if there's anyone in the UK interested, he can set up at least one or two emissaries there...
Aside from official release, here's a blog post that pretty well outlines the scenarios and gives the victory conditions for each, as well as the map layouts. So if anyone wanted to recreate these themselves in the meantime...we have a Scenario Builder now to do just that ;)
Also, I'd highly recommend submitting an app for being an Emissary...I know we have at least a handful of EU emissaries already, Ireland and Germany come to mind (and I think someone in one of the Scandinavian countries, can't remember for sure).
that would be awesome, brian :)
@redend sorry for the slow response. I keep up at the Forums but don't come back here as often. hair10 is right, these aren't 'living world' the way that the previous scenarios were. That said, we can release them for normal pick-up games after the fact easy enough. I'll talk to the team.
@Redend... I don't think this league is a living world event.
Woohoo! Got the promo cards so I am now 100% complete! Good job HBS!
@hbs Im curious but what it be possible to allow players to play the hundred skulls scenario after its over ?, the reason I ask is that being in the uk there are no emissaries so im unable to try it, im not fussed about the rewards side of things but dont want to miss out on the living scenarios
Love this game and I am very happy to have backed this project.
Just reinstalled and it is working now!
Does not work for me, I get kicked out when I choose Battle and then Golem Scenario :-(
HOOHOOO!! An Update for the update! ^_^
They pushed out the update? NICE!
Maybe I should run that at Anime Boston in my extra time slot...
We are a GO for multiplayer! WOOT! Need to try it out tonight when i get home :)
Just received my last two Golems! woohoo! Only one day late due to the Blizzard.
Once I get the envelope of cards I'm completely 100% fulfilled! ;)
@Craig - I was referring to an "everyman" wiki page on wikipedia to help get the word out about the game. I am quite familiar with the particular wiki you mentioned ;)
There is the beginnings of a wikia page:
Check it out and help it grow
Just wanted to let you know that I received my cards today. Thank you so much for getting them out to me. I guess this finally concludes all KS transactions where GA is concerned for me. That makes me alittle sad :).
Received my Wave 2 in Germany today
Going over to the mainland tomorrow to check in on the next manufacturing run: Zikia 3, Urugal 3, German Loc, and some random reprints
@Brian... so, what are you doing in Hong Kong? :-)
@Aaron @Kurtis... don't forget about my Blood Channeler giveaway there too!
@Kurtis If you're looking for single, I strongly recommend checking out eBay and the official forums at https://golemarcana.com/forum/. Some folks have been selling off singles, and there are some threads on the forum boards for selling/buying/trading golems. If you check there, you may very well find what you're looking for...or if you pick up a full expansion, both eBay and the forums are good options to offload single golems you decide you don't want/need.
Nihao from Hong Kong, Backers!
@JR -- re: Wikipedia
That's kinda crazy, I'll bump it to our media team.
@Redend -- re: sand kraken
Nope, I'm afraid that figure design is deep, deep on the back of the back shelf. I'd be surprised if he ever gets pulled off.
@Kurtis -- re: singles
Nope. It's important for our hobby-store relations that we do not undercut sales of 3-fig sets by selling their component golems individually.
Is their a plan to sell single Golems?
@hbs This has just occurred to me, but since we are beginning to see wave , is there any chance of the return of the original sand kraken ?
@Brian - I just realized, there isn't a Golem Arcana wikipedia page!
Someone should probably create one, either you or a fan.
(sadly I don't have the time at the moment) :(
woohoo! Received my final shipping notice!
understood. thanks brian.
@Slyide - regarding dates. You're right, we are loathe to give out dates. What I can say is that the update we are preparing to submit to apple has the 3+ player support in it and that we are still ruthlessly crushing bugs. Dinner will be ready when it's ready. :) Right now, it's safe to say, though, that it won't be ready by the 31st. :( That's the best I can do.
Naz -- please email us at email@example.com -- being in Malaysia, getting t-shirts to you is much more challenging. Sorry that that fell through the cracks for you. We'll get ti figured out.
Got my wave 2... now, did I miss an update about T-Shirts?
