Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

Recommended Posts

It was going to be this or 'Cthulhu: Death May Die' and I backed the latter.

 

....I've also backed the former, but the chances of that pledge remaining in place is small

This looks very good - but I find it strange that only concept art exists for even the first stretch goal miniature.

I agree!  Especially with delivery set for March 2019. 

 

The next miniature SG is supposed to be another large lord figure but again only concept art.

They are starting to lose me.  By now, everyone that's launching a board game should know that you need the rulebook (draft) and a gameplay video.  I'm also finding it concerning that for an Australian company, their grasp of English is rather tenuous.

Beta rulebook download on the project main page about two thirds of the way down.

 

A gameplay video showing a short sample round and another video explaining a stat card breakdown appear just below the rulebook download.

 

As for the English ... there are quite a few Oriental names on their staff list (and one African surname too, I think Nguyen's African isn't it?)

The Nguyen's that I have know have all had Vietnamese ancestry.

This is beginning to remind me of the recent Overturn Risining Sands kickstarter where it turned out it was a Canadian kickstarter in name only as everyone involved was in Pakistan.

I see what you mean but Limbo already has a resin miniature line and is a real company with a web store.  They have some really nice pieces!

 

Also a Youtuber by the name of King of Average received some pieces from Limbo and he posted a video of the pieces.  

 

I think @Balgin Stondraeg is correct in that this is a real Australian company but English is the creator's second language.  It is very close to Asia.  And Australia has a very high Asian population.  

 

They have been very active in the comments and have responded well to people's concerns and tips.   This is also their 2nd project.  

 

I think they are just very inexperienced with a large KS project and this is their first boardgame which also is a challenge for them.

Yes, I've seen the beta rulebook and the VERY limited videos.  It's not enough to really show me how the game plays.  Put two people at a table and have them actually play it.  Let's see that there's some strategy other than simply trading blows.  Let's see the cards in action and how using fate points at the right (or wrong) time can impact the game.  I don't think that's too much to ask.

I merely meant that there are a lot of Chinese & Japanese folk in Australia.

 

I do like the back and forth idea of spent fate points essentially being passed to the opponent at the end of the round. It can allow the battle to sway back and forth. I would like to see it in action some more to get a feel for how much it would impact the game.

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!
       
      "A dark fantasy tabletop game with spell casting & area control.  The fate of the colony is at stakes; build your empire & rule the realm!"
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshbeck/obsidia
       
      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.
