Fluo Games is going to be rebooting their Color Warz: Dark Threat Kickstarter campaign. They’re hoping that cleaning up the pledge levels and some other things will help make it a much more successful campaign.


From the announcement:

Hello Backers,

These last 27 days, we worked hard to propose you the best campaign we can. We did a huge start with £10,000 in one day but only £8,000 in the following 26 days. We count today 135 backers but we have lost around 30 of you. As you can see in the Kicktraq, if we do nothing, staying in this situation, we will not reach our goal at the end of the campaign. We have too many pledges (15) and our offers are not clear at all. We wanted to make the best choice for you but we did wrong.

For all of these reasons, we decided to make a reboot. We know that we might lose some of you but we have to be objective. Without a reboot, we won’t make it. So, we will come back this week with a clearer offer and a campaign focused on gamers.

But you do not have to worry if you are a hobbyist. All of our miniatures will be available on the new optionnal stuff, without locking. So, if you are a painter, a collector or a tabletop gamer, you will find what you need with a Kickstarter special discount.

We will also make one and only one VIP offer but it will be nice, very nice. We hope to see you in our new Color Warz : Dark Threat campaign.

We count on you !

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • I really wanted this game to work. DPG really has a great design thing going on imho and would like to see them attract people. I do think that they need to make the purchase a little more exciting though tbh as their games do seem a little expensive (in a kickstarter way) and they need to remember that they are in direct competition against bigger companies offering a lot more for people money. Is this how it ‘SHOULD’ work? I feel a big NO is the answer. Is this how it ‘DOES’ works? I am afraid the answer is yes and it needs to be remembered imho in order to be more successful.

    Please please please get us excited with those awesome models at a nice price and I think they would fly off the shelves. 😀

    They really need to have a plastic model option that’s more affordable. $400+ for a board game is just insane.

    besides the ridiculous prices they were asking, the other issue is the nature of the game, or rather, theme. While people bemoan the constant influx of new cthlulhu or zombie or gygax-DND sword n sorcery minis and games, the sad truth is that the masses continue to pay mucho $$$ for those products so something with a different theme or look needs to work harder and more competitively to attract funding.

    And full disclosure — I consider myself in the masses of being satisfied with more of the same traditional fantasy or ww2 or scifi stuff.
