Not every Kickstarter goes how a producer wants it to. Things might not work out, but that doesn't mean your product will never see the light of day. If you're committed and ready to tweak your campaign and can figure out different ways of doing things, youc an relaunch and hopefully have a successful campaign the next time around. That's what we have here with Yohei. Eclipse Editorial was dedicated to making this game and now it looks like they'll be able to do it.
From the campaign:
Yohei is a skirmish game born from the combination of Japanese folkloric mysticism and its heroic deeds.
Combine die rolling, modular boards, and card management to immerse yourself in battles fought by the warriors of your army. Construct buildings, summon powerful events, invoke legendary weapons, and crush your enemy in games that last around 30 minutes per player.
Yohei offers 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, and 3 player free-for-all skirmishes. Additionally, for those who manage to master the game and want to delve deeper into its mechanics, you can also build your own decks with your favorite characters and events, seeking endless combinations and hidden tricks among the skills, weapons, and heroes of Jiin.
A good backstory provides the historical background to the feats and conflicts of the heroes of the Island of Jiin and its asymmetric clans.
Will you be the chosen one? Will you manage to subdue your enemies?
The campaign's around 2x funded with 15 days left to go.
