Final Hours for XenoShyft Dreadmire Kickstarter

The Brood is pressing their advantage. The base is starting to crumble. NorTec bodies litter the ground. The transport ships are on their way, but who will make it to the Xenosathem first? Time is of the essence, delaying could mean tragedy. The final hours of XenoShyft: Dreadmire up on Kickstarter are upon us. You only have until 3pm (Eastern) today to pledge.

XenoShyft: Immolation Expansion Added to Dreadmire Kickstarter

Even though temperatures are dropping here in the Eastern part of the US, things are certainly heating up over on the XenoShyft: Dreamire Kickstarter campaign. The NorTec Corporation isn’t looking to just get Xenosathem from one or two planets. Anywhere they can find this valuable resource, they’re going to go after it, no matter what sort of hellish conditions may exist on the planet it is found on. And “hellish” is certainly the right term for this next planet. How about a little fire, Scarecrow?

XenoShyft: Dreadmire Passing Stretch Goals

Well, it’s been a bit more than a day since the launch of the XenoShyft: Dreadmire Kickstarter campaign. Seems you guys are as eager to get that Xenosathem as the guys at NorTec (or the monsters in the Brood), as they’ve gone through quite a few stretch goals since the campaign. They’ve added various new cards to the box, as well as full-art cards as well. Well, the first add-on has been posted as well, if you’re interested.

XenoShyft Dreadmire Kickstarter Launch Date Posted

Progress marches on! The wheels of commerce and trade will not be stopped! Better get out of the way! NorTec is setting their sights on another planet rich in Xenosathem and they’re not afraid to send wave after wave of troops in order to get it out of there.
Wait. Wave after wave? Troops? It’s not going to be as easy as, “land on planet. Extract Ore. Profit” is it? Oh heck no it isn’t. Dreadmire, the next expansion for Xenoshyft will be hitting Kickstarter in just under a week.

New Dreadmire Preview Cards Posted

With all the fog outside here today, you could almost think you were in a swamp. Though I don’t think that just wandering around Atlanta is anywhere near as deadly as walking around in XenoShyft. There don’t tend to be giant monsters waiting to jump out at you here in Atlanta. Either way, we’ve got another quartet of preview cards to check out.

New NorTec Cards Previewed For XenoShyft

Well, the other day we got a look at some of the upcoming cards for The Hive in the new XenoShyft expansion, Dreadmire, which is coming to Kickstarter in January. Of course, if there’s going to be some new Brood cards, there should be some new NorTec cards to fight against them. It wouldn’t be much of a game if there were just aliens to wreck your base and no way to defend it.

Announcing: Xenoshyft: Dreadmire Playtest

XenoShyft puts players in charge of a NorTec mining operation as they look for Xenosathem, a very valuable mineral. However, The Horde, a name given to various groups of alien life forms, are also looking for Xenosathem. And the only thing standing between your bottom line and a grisly death is how you deploy your NorTec defense forces. Well, things are getting nastier as XenoShyft: Dreadmire takes you into the swampy, nasty areas and still tells you, “survive if you can.” New Weather effects in this stand-alone expansion will challenge players like never before. That’s where you come in.
