Update number 3 suggests they aren't aiming for too many miniatures in this game. 

Makes sense.  What will be included seems more than enough in my eyes. 

 

I'm still surprised at just how interesting this game seems to me, mist be my old Natural Selection (a game) days coming back ^_^ normally I'm not into horror or survival horror at all.

I enjoyed the gameplay put out by beastsofwar. If they are adding the expansions for a good price, I will stick with my pledge. ^.^

Looks like shipping to Canada is from Poland by boat with UPS. :angry: So... expensive shipping, 2 months later than the US, and brokerage fees highly likely. Yay.

 

A while ago 

AR_Jordan Collaboratorposted on the KS page:We send to canada via postal services so backers can avoid UPS brokage fees, they will be shipped first in line with other economic shipping so they should arrive along last UPS packages as shipping will take 1-2 months

Showed the game to hubby, and he rather likes the idea, especially since it's semi-random and therefore each round should be different. 

 

Haven't watched gameplay videos yet, but I like the concept, and especially the intruders..

Hmmm...I watched an hour of the BoW gameplay and was bored out of my mind.  Actually, that was what caused me to drop my pledge.

 

It got interesting around the 1h13min mark.  Only one of them made it out in the end. 

 

Much as I find the game neat, I might be dropping my pledge simply due to the slow boat shipping alongside the cost.  Before shipping its already $180ish CAD, and I'd much rather spend that on painting supplies (and miniatures)

Yeah, I finished watching the BoW video finally.  It did get more interesting, but still just seemed sluggish and they always had the option to run away from the aliens.  That doesn't seem very cinematic.

I was kinda hoping this game would have multiple gameplay options like turning it into a bughunt besides the survival horror. Or different game types and plotlines for replayability. I mean if you have the minis why not put them to use. It's going to be boring playing the same "aliens! run and hide while doing a couple objectives" over and over again. There's a comic book with a story that seems choose your own adventureish and might be innovative, or might crash and burn. I'm still not seeing the value for the cost and the Carnomorphs add-on is half the price of the core game and no where near the content. I'll wait it out the next 10 days and see if it gets better before I back out. I need to make sure it's worth the $250-/+ its going to cost me. Probably better off waiting until it hits retail and goes on sale.

Whoa, that's ambitious.  They mention in the update that a polished comic takes a lot of money to produce- but do they know how much work they'll have to put in to learn to write a comic well?

 

I generally assume that game designers absolutely suck at fiction writing (and once in a while, I'm pleasantly surprised).  How was the writing in This War of Mine?

 

I hope they surprise me, but I'm definitely going into it with low expectations.

Not sure about the board game, but the video game of this war of mine had pretty good writing imo. A very good portrayal of survival and the gravity of any decision you take.

Many bakers (myself included) are currently receiving emails informing us that ...

 

Quote

The status of your order has changed.

Ready for shipping

Your order is in transit to shipping hub! We currently estimate shipping directly to you in November / December, depending on your shipping zone! Once it will ship to you, you will get status update with a tracking. 

 

It's probably nothing much but it's a definite sign of progress.

 

Obviously I removed any sensitive details but it seems loads of the backers are all receiving the same email. It's a week or two earlier than the creator's estimates for the shipping crates to arrive at the various shipping hubs so many of us are feeling lucky. Or confused. Often a bit of both.

Well this morning at 5.33am UPS put my parcel on the van.

At 8.27am they turned the engine on and drove the van out the depot.

Then at 6.14 pm (PM!) they took it back to the depot and decided to deliver it tomorrow instead.

 

They're only about 15-20 miles away. Must be a very busy delivery driver.

 

It could be worse.

They could be DPD!

 

Not a happy bunny.

Box arrived here today in jolly old England. Everything seemed to be in order but I'll have to make a more detailed investigation. The bonus box included the comic (which I had not added so I'm a little confused there). No early bird freebie Medic but then she was an expansion so I imagine she'll be turning up some time next year.

      It's time to print and release the newest volume of the GOLD BRICK SERIES, the GOLD DIGGER FREDeral Reserve which compiles a multitude of the Gold Digger  spin-offs and ancillary series.   If you supported the previous Gold Bricks, thank you very much, and we hope you support this campaign too. With a load of great standalone and continuity pickup stories, this collection makes a great jumping-on point for any new readers, as well as awesome reading for longtime fans. THESE ISSUES HAVE NEVER BEEN COLLECTED INTO ONE VOLUME BEFORE. Between its black-and-white and full-color issues, the main Gold Digger series is fast approaching the 300-issue mark and is going strong!  (Including material like that being compiled into the FREDeral Reserve, GD is already well past that milestone!)
      If you're not familiar with us, my name is Joeming Dunn, and I run Antarctic Press, a small, independent comic company started in 1984. I have personally collected comics of almost every type and genre since 1974, and I can say that during the past 30 years, we have published some of the greatest and best independent comics out there. Our publishing history includes titles like Gold Digger and Ninja High School. The comic industry has changed over the years, so we have started this Kickstarter program to help introduce new projects from our talented group of creators.
      Prominent among the many series we have published over the years is Fred Perry's ingenious title, Gold Digger, which Fred describes as a mixture of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. The idea for Gold Digger was first conceived during Fred's tour of duty in the first Gulf War, and it debuted in Antarctic Press's anthology comic, Mangazine, in 1991. A four-issue miniseries followed in 1992, and a regular monthly black-and-white series followed starting in 1993. The current color series began in 1999 and has continued since then. It is the second-longest-running solo-created title in the industry. Among comic books with female leads, its run is second only to Wonder Woman.  In 2013, Fred was honored at Comic Con International in San Diego, where he received an Inkpot Award for his work on Gold Digger.
      Over the past years, we have released other Gold Bricks as Kickstarter projects. This Gold Brick is outside the numbering system of the main-series Bricks, so no potentially confusing volume numbers this time! If you haven't seen or read Gold Digger, this is your chance to enjoy one of the best and longest-running ongoing series in comics. Like the other Bricks, this one lets new readers join in easily, so you don't have to be shy!
      Over the next few years, we'll go back to reprint the other volumes to match the new Kickstarter printings' format. We want everyone to have nice editions. In addition to reasons already mentioned, during previous campaigns, many backers have asked us to collect these series, since many of these issues are difficult to find. 
      So what is included in this Gold Brick?
      A Science Affair Asrial vs Cheetah GD Minus 18 Gina vs Penny (GvP) Gold Digger Dreadwing's Mymior Gold Digger Adventures WHEW...that's quite a line up.
      What are we going to do with the Kickstarter money?
      Plain and simple, we're going to print and ship the Gold Digger FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick.
      The FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick is over 600 pages, many of which are in full color. Printing the actual books is the biggest single expense. The first print run of a typical Gold Brick is quite costly, as most printers require a minimum run to make it cost-effective. We are thus using Kickstarter to assist us with those costs. If the amount seems high, you must remember that we are printing at least a thousand copies of a 600+ page book. Another cost is shipping: First we will have to ship the books from the printer to our offices, and once we get them, send copies to all our supporters and distributors. Several thousand pounds of books represents a significant shipping expense.
      Here is a breakdown of our expenses.
      Printing: $12,500 (which includes hard and softcover)
      Shipping: $3,000 (Sending a 600-page book is costly, especially overseas.  The cost for shipping just one copy overseas is now around $34.)
      Fees: $1500 (Kickstarter takes their fees off the top)
      Handling/Supplies: $1500 (We have to pay for boxes and pay people to pack those boxes.)
      That does not include cost for sending the large PDF files to all the supporters and other miscellaneous costs.
      Those basic expenses total $18,500.
      So what do you get?
      The brick is 6 x 9 inches and will contain AT LEAST the series we mentioned above.

      About this project
      This is my first set of TerraScapes.  I present to you a natural Caves & Grottos core set. With the full range of double sided modular tiles, you can quickly create ultra-realistic cavern scenarios for any of your spelunking adventures! If you've ever found yourself in a cave, you know how under represented they are in the games that we love to play. There is nothing linear about spelunking and caverns aren't flat! Caves are twisted sections of open air encased by cool moist rocky walls.  That's why I've coined this terrain as a Nonlinear Modular Terrain System, and it's a new way of dressing your Tabletop with functional, dynamic terrain for all your Tabletop RPG's!
      TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos strives to simulate natural terrain for optimal immersion and strategic playability. To maximize the possibilities every tile is double sided! This means that with every tile you get twice the possible play space! Both tops and bottoms of each tile can be used in your layouts!  Each tile is designed to work like a table where instead of legs, you have stalactites and large rocks. It allows you to stack them up however you want! This gives your layout real depth and introduces a whole new dimension for increased strategical encounters. Whether it's for your big boss battle, wargame or random encounter, everything you'll need for an endless tactical cavern layout comes with our set of Caves & Grottos!
      This video shows how to build an endless array of immersive caverns for your tabletop!
      What's in the Full Set?  I have a ton of tiles prototyped and ready for this campaign.  If everything is unlocked we will have 9 Core double-sided tiles, 3 exclusive large  double-sided KS tiles, 2 Rock Packs which include a total of 8 double-sided rocks and rock/well combinations, 2 sets of Stalactite risers containing a total of 4 risers, 3 double-sided flowstone/pit centerpieces and 4 packs of double-sided wall sections containing 8 wall sections.  This is everything you'll need to bring to life any dynamic cavern scenario that you could possibly dream up!  You can purchase any of these Packs of tiles or accessories as Add-ons as they are unlocked during this campaign by managing your pledge amount and adding their cost(s).  If you are bad with arithmetic, just send me a message and I'll give you hand personally!
      I know, I know...  I'm getting ahead of myself here!  When the campaign launches we'll only have the three tiles from Core Pack:A, and the exclusive KS:1 tiles available.  Whenever we unlock another Core Pack, I will also unlock another exclusive KS tile for you to snatch up!  I am fairly confident that we are going to smash through almost every stretch goal I have planned.
      Core Pack:A Random Layout with KS Tile:1  With the exception of the Stalac-Packs, note that every terrain piece in TerraScapes is double-sided. The following graphics depict both the tops and bottoms of every piece and are not separate pieces offered with the packs.  The sizes listed are in terms of tile height.  So a Size 2 piece is two tiles high.  A Size 3 piece is 3 tiles high.  
      Please Manage your Pledge if you would like to add-on any pieces.  A survey will be sent after the Kickstarter has concluded for you to list which add-ons and options (like paint schemes) you would like.  All shipping charges will be handled by a Third Party Pledge Manager after the Kickstarter as well.  You will have until December 1st, 2017 to update your Pledge using this Pledge Manager
      3 Core Pack:A tiles and the first Exclusive KS Tile:1 As each set of new tiles and accessories are unlocked we will journey deeper into what TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos has to offer any story.  During this campaign, your very pledges will move a group of adventurers through the deep, exploring the sets that you unlock.  Our heroes fate will depend upon your support!  When the campaign ends, our adventurers will either perish or succeed in escaping these deep Caves & Grottos! 
      Core Pack:A, KS Tile:1 and Rocks & Wells Pack:A  
      Rock & Wells Pack:A contains four Size 1 Risers  
      Stalac-Pack:A contains two Size 2 Risers  
       
      Core Pack:B Random Layout with KS Tile:2
