Dark Souls board game from Steamforged


Recommended Posts

I thought I saw somewhere that they had SG's out to 4 million with approval from Bandai.  Maybe I misread it.  I think the project is a good deal so I'll probably stay in regardless, but once they show actual gameplay I'll decide if I keep it once it ships.


It was originally 1M then SFG later announced to 4M.

Yes, as far as I can tell they had stretches up to 4 million but only up to 1 million had been approved (or approved in full)


although Bandai is actually moving pretty fast for a licensor as they approved the video in only a 1week (not light speed by any means, but for a bigish company to actually get everybody who needs to sign something off to do it in a week is pretty impressive)

I'm still a bit baffled that there is no more Information concerning gameplay (the new video from Monday barely scratches the surface ... at least I hope so) and that there are no better concepts of the miniatures. I have almost no idea what the minis in the boss expansion will look like and the stretch goal heroes from the beginning are all in a quite boring pose which is surely not the final one ...

Do you think they're talking to Namco of Japan?  I figured that they're probably working with someone in From Software in Canada.  Or Namco's American branch (they're have one, I have no doubt).


I do wonder if they've got a contract that requires that everything get approved by Namco, or if they have something a little looser.  It isn't like Steamforge has any interest in putting out poor quality stuff, you know?


By the way, I like the update about character genders.  It looks like the core characters will be  4 women, 5 men and one suit of armor that completely obscures gender.

Give real Information for instance?


For example: will the Terrain/obstacles printed on the tiles have any effect?


Where do you see a "demo playthrough"? I mean ... a real one and not just 4 minutes of things that were known before?


How about providing the Information on the Kickstarter page and not buried in AMAs?

I'm only staying in because I feel pretty confident that I'll be able to get my money back by selling it if the game play turns out to be terrible. Otherwise, I'd drop this thing in a hurry. I honestly don't think they have a fully developed design yet, but they had to rush this because of licensing fees.


And talk about anti-climactic. Not expecting any surprises the rest of the way. And I feel no incentive to pledge for any add-ons since their discount seems to be about 7% there and online pricing for their stuff seems to be about 10% off.

      Kickstarter for a resin Dagon sculpt. Currently live and ends Monday 6 Nov, so not much time if you're interested

      Hi chums!
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      A new kickstarter from Crooked Dice. I've been following the publicity for this and it really appeals to me. Lots of very colourful figures and most of them are a nice change from the usual predictable gun-toting heavies. I've collected plenty of Crooked Dice figures over the years and always been very pleased with the quality.

      Welcome everyone to the Kickstarter campaign for Sun & Moon. Two highly detailed 1:20 scale (90mm) resin kits  cast in high quality resin. Sun Is roughly 100mm to the top of his head!
      Sun & Moon comparisment: Sun stands at nearly 100mm!!!
      This has been the project that has been the longest in the works and also our most expensive one to date! We could really use your help to bring these two kits onto the market so we do hope that you like what you see and will be able to back us and help us spread the word! :)
      Many years back, the idea to do some themed knights popped into my head and out of all of those, Sun & Moon were the ones that really stuck and kept coming back in my thoughts.  The idea to do two characters that are opposites of each other in every way really appealed to me. 
      You have the Sun Knight, devout follower of the Sun God, a fiery and strong warrior with everything about him representing his deity. I can just see him painted in bright and warm colours that embody the very essence of the Sun!
      And then you have the Moon Knight, a cool and brooding figure that operates under the cover of darkness, guided by the wisdom of the Moon Goddess. Very much a deadly warrior in her own right! Painted in moody hues that represent the colours that only moonlight can shower the world in.

      Nice models and one of the SG is a 20% discount on the Kimera Colors range (They will open a pre-order for their "almost-impossible-to-buy" colors at the end of April)
