Wouldn't mind seeing them have a terrain and map KS for 28mm superhero and zombie games.

 

Anyway, live session going on right now!

I just now realized how much I need a giant exclamation point miniature.  Because reasons.

 

Edit: in the comments, it looks like they are running demos in my area this weekend.  I can stop by and report back how it looks/plays.

I'd be more impressed if the 'Kidlovestigergames' website wasn't just a parked GoDaddy domain, and all their other dealings seems to be on FarceBook.

(The parked page seems to have had the title 'The World of Wayword' )

Also, no pledge level for just the minis.

 

As far as earlier Kickstarters, it might be prudent to study Beast Masters, the Dice Placement Game(on KS), Legends of the Mist(another KS) and Hunters: Enter the Darkness(yet another KS).  These are all by Chris Peach, but as the verified ID behind both that name and the Kid Loves Tiger Games name is Erica Wiebusch, I think they need to be considered, also. (Nope, haven't studied those older KS Projects, but the Hunters game looks as if it has some neato minis... )

I got some pictures of the prototype game at Con of the North yesterday:

I think the models would benefit from basing on something heavier like a metal washer, as small table bumps can topple trees / fire hydrants / lamps.

 

For the game itself, it has all the standard superhero stuff I'd expect.  Running up the side of a building and pushing another dude off the top, throwing trucks at people, big dude bowling over the top of several smaller dudes, etc.  And some silly stuff like getting soda from a vending machine to get caffeined up for extra actions.

 

The game moves really quickly. Characters get 4-6 actions per turn all of which can be used for movement or attacks, so you can all out run 15+ squares in a turn, or unleash a multiple attacks, or line up knockback chain reactions, etc, all pretty easily.  Special powers unique to each character are listed on their card.  Tokens for damage or status effects can go on the character card to keep the play area less cluttered.

Since I liked the look of the game and wanted to spread the word I also started a thread on my other favourite forum Dakkadakka, and some information has come up over there that raised possible concerns over this project

 

i'd urge anybody interested in backing read over the thread here https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/750823.page and make up their own minds if it's a risk they want to take

 

(i'm sure this is a real game they want to make and that it would be fun, i'm less sure the driving force behind it is who it initially appeared to be and therefore the risks might be higher than I first thought)

Thanks for the link. Will wait for retail instead. My brother was backing, he dropped the pledge since he no longer feels comfortable with the information provided.

      for all your turtle minis needs (there seem to be an awful lot of proprietary dice gameplay wise, but other than that I haven't looked to hard at it)

       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!

      Anyone have any info about the company? How able do you think they can pull off a KS? They've at least been in business for a long time?
