It's cool to see characters you love from one game making their way into others.

Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5 Up On Kickstarter

Pretty much every gamer out there knows of Kingdom Death. The original Kickstarter campaign made over $2mil. But then... oh the troubles. It was one of the campaigns that took the longest to actually deliver. However, from all I've seen, it was worth the wait... and worth the weight, since the final game's components made it so heavy that selling it retail wasn't really an option. Well, the game is back up on Kickstarter with a new, revised version, and a new record-breaking Kickstarter.

Kingdom Death posts Monster update

Kingdom Death posted an update about how things are moving along with Monster, their board game that's been in production for quite some time. The first bit is that fulfillment hasn't started yet. However, they are moving forward with things and have a schedule for the core games being printed. The first set of games should be done around the end of May. Plastic piece creation has been completed and the pieces have been sent to the company that will be packaging the game.
They also posted up a small preview shot of the Gorm sprue from the game.

Hey, it's a KD model I can post. That's kind of different.

From the website:

Strong-willed sons and daughters of powerful Great Game Hunter houses sometimes find themselves bored of the intricate courtly intrigues they must entertain. These Rogues will eschew the stuffy machinery of the city, turning their attentions to mastering the wilderness beyond. Armed to the teeth and rich with all the advantages of their houses' resources, they set out to live rough, or as rough as nobleman of fine-breeding and plentiful wealth can live.

New Monster update posted

Kingdom Death lets us know how things are going on Monster. Though the title says much of it, "This project is not finished yet."
Note: Being Kingdom Death, of course there are some elements that may not be safest to view at most places of employment.

From the post:

The amount of effort that has gone into each and every miniature is akin to squeezing a diamond from a lump of coal. Metaphorically speaking, I’m covered in soot, my finger nails are cracked and I’m coughing up black chunks.

I’ve been busy, more busy then I’ve ever been in my life, trying with every ounce of myself to keep the plastic production on track. It has been a huge challenge and has required more of my attention than I anticipated. When I tried to step back, I had to balance it against more lost time or worse yet, a loss of quality and thus, I’ve just had to keep my nose to the grindstone.

I could not step away from the tasks at hand and thus, could not get this update out any sooner. Between preparing it and getting my brain ready to respond to the follow up messages, I decided to finish the time sensitive stuff, and then return to the public surface.

And well... here I am!

New Nightmare Ram available from Kingdom Death

Kingdom Death has their new Nightmare Ram available over in their webshop.

From the website:

The nightmare ram is the living spawn of a parasitic plant. It subsists on the salt of creatures which it metabolizes to power the glowing bulbs that grow atop its tough horns and the large lantern organ on it carries outside its body. They are sensitive, lonesome creatures that carefully cultivate beautiful, hidden gardens containing the plants that produce them. They will often beat trespassers into a pulp and use them as salt-rich fertilizer.

Like any fruit that has been picked, their life span is short.

Kingdom Death: Monster release pushed back to Quarter 1 of next year

Kingdom Death has updated their Kickstarter project for Monster to say that they're having to push back release of the game in order to make the pieces more detailed and of higher quality.



Source

From the update:

I decided long ago to match fans enthusiasm by offering my absolute best. Today that same decision has led me here. To ensure that the entirety of the project is the absolute best I can offer, I must delay it. Additional time will be spent on play testing, expansions, and plastic production. This includes a return trip to China to oversee the final 2-3 weeks of production in person.

If there is any one to blame for this delay, blame me and my absolute refusal to compromise the quality of Kingdom Death. A brand built entirely by fans and now thousands of backers. I have never before rushed anything to market or compromised the vision for this project.

This kickstarter has been an amazing opportunity for Kingdom Death and we will not squander it by simply rushing to the finish line.

Huge update for Monster from Kingdom Death

Kingdom Death posted up a pretty huge update on their Kickstarter page for their Monster game. It includes info about all aspects of the production and how it's moving along, plus a lot of preview photos.



From the update:

Schedule Update
We are still aiming to hit our target date to begin shipping rewards in november. At this time the manufacturing partners involved have made it their priority to meet our very aggressive timeline. Things will be close as time is tight. As we work as hard as possible, If I feel the quality of the game or its components will suffer in any way, I will let you know and we can decide if we should delay it or not. While I feel that maintaing our timeline is of the utmost importance, Anna has reminded me several times that actually you, the backers, are the most important and that no one wants anything to be rushed.
