Final week for Cross Hares from 1A Games on Kickstarter

1A Games has a week left for their Cross Hares game over on Kickstarter. They're at roughly 2x funded, so check out what's already been unlocked, plus what hopefully is still to be unlocked.
Personally, I love the artwork in this campaign.

Since Day 1 of this project we've had a pledge level at $500 entitled 'You Dirty Rat.' The lucky two backers who got in first (and they went fast) are both getting custom designed characters which will be fully playable in the game.

The two backers at this level right now are Xavier Robledo and Kevin Dusi.

Jesse has been contacting them to see what they would like their characters to be and here is the first of the two (Kevin's)!

1A Games updates their Tide of Iron Kickstarter with new stretch goals

1A Games is still making their way to their funding goal over on Kickstarter for their Tide of Iron expansion, but they figured they should show off some stretch goals to help entice you to pledge.

From the update:

This is it boys and girls; the Big One!

1A Games is pleased to announce what we feel is our best stretch goal yet:

This final stretch goal would allow us to produce (earlier than we had originally hoped) a new Map Pack expansion; this time with all new maps! It will feature 9 brand new double-sided map boards and 3 sheets of punch out terrain overlays and the art will match the style of the current maps from Normandy onwards.

Go and read the description for full details on what will be featured on the maps!

1A Games cancels Tide of Iron Kickstarter campaign, relaunch coming soon

1A Games cancelled their Kickstarter campaign for their Tide of Iron starter sets. They're going to have a re-launch soon after they've retooled their campaign.



Source

From the update:

This Kickstarter is canceled and will be re-launched soon!

1A Games's motto is "We recognize and listen to our fans" – and we have been listening.

We need to fix some of the pledge prices, add new pledge levels, and hopefully find a way to lower the shipping costs to our overseas fans.

We cannot change pledge levels once a Kickstarter is launched, and trying to add new rewards and pledge levels while the Kickstarter is running just seems to be confusing people.

Therefore, we are canceling this Kickstarter.

It will be re-launched after we re-write the pledge levels, and after we preview the revised version – especially with everyone who gave us feedback.

Thanks for your patience, understanding, and support!
