Alchemy RPG, a virtual tabletop (VTT) currently running a Kickstarter campaign, has surpassed its initial goal of $10,000 and raised over $280,000 with 28 days still remaining. The campaign, which ends on May 25th, has seen tremendous success, indicating that there is significant demand for a VTT that prioritizes immersion, art, and ambience over trying to mimic a video game like the newly announced Dungeons & Dragons Virtual Tabletop.
Alchemy RPG’s Version One, which has been in Early Access beta for a year, introduces officially licensed first-party support for 12 game systems, content modules from over 50 publishers and creators, and Alchemy Enhanced, an immersive new way to experience tabletop RPGs online.
To celebrate the release of Version One, Alchemy RPG has partnered with 30 content creators to offer an exclusive collection of physical cards arranged into four thematic content decks. Each card includes a code to redeem the title digitally on Alchemy. Alchemy RPG is collaborating with gaming industry giants like Free League Publishing, Paizo, and Chaosium to create Enhanced versions of popular titles such as Mörk Borg, Tales From the Loop, Coriolis, Forbidden Lands, and Dragonbane. The Enhanced versions include a custom-themed Alchemy interface, original score, ambient soundscapes, motion overlays, and an animated title screen.
The Kickstarter campaign offers four thematic content decks (Fantasy, Futures, Horror, and Modern) as reward tiers, each containing ten cards with campaign settings, adventures, and supplements from creators such as Paizo, World of Darkness, Modiphius, Magpie Games, Kobold Press, Hunters Entertainment, and Chaosium. There is also a fifth deck exclusively offered in a box set collection that includes all 50 content cards. Backers will have the opportunity to get decks at more than half off the retail price.
Kickstarter backers will receive exclusive benefits, such as “Backer Account” status, advanced access to new features, and Alchemy Version One before the general public. Each physical tier will also receive access to Alchemy Unlimited, with an option to purchase a lifetime license to Alchemy’s premium subscription at the campaign’s highest tier. In addition to Enhanced content experiences, title availability, and a wide array of game system support, Alchemy RPG is also adding tactical improvements like fog of war, grid customization, video chat, and Streamer Mode, making it the only tool needed to tell an incredible story.
