Rising Sun


CMON has launched their Kickstarter campaign to add new digital assets like soundtracks and art books for some of their previous games. They're HATE, Zombicide: Green Horde, and Rising Sun. You can also pledge for those games as well. Well, you could've if they hadn't all sold out super-quickly, anyway. But you can still possibly sign up for the pledge manager and get some stuff there.

CMON is launching a new Kickstarter campaign this week. They're going to be adding new digital art books and soundtracks for Zombicide: Green Horde, HATE, and Rising Sun. But, along with just adding those, backers will be able to pledge for those Kickstarter bundles themselves (as though they've gone back in time to when those campaigns were running, you see). So, if you missed out on your chance before, you'll have a new chance to back them now.

It's Saturday! Woo! What cannot be accomplished on such a day as today!?

Eric Lang is known for his "dudes on a map" type of games. One of those that people are really excited to get is Rising Sun. There, players are in charge of their own clan in a fantasy version of Medieval Japan. Will your clan use honor and diplomacy to attain power? Or will it backstab anyone it can in search of their ultimate goal? You decide.

The Friendly Local Gaming Store (FLGS for short) is really the center of gaming life. It's where we gamers congregate and play games, as well as pick up the great games we play. Well, CMON wants to make sure the LGS isn't overlooked when it comes to Kickstarter campaigns. That's where their Retailer Pledges come in for their Kickstarter campaigns. Brick-and-mortar retail shops in North America can sign up and be part of the Kickstarter as their shop, letting their customers come to them and still get all those great Kickstarter exclusives.

This is one that people have been looking forward to since its announcement last year at Gen Con. CMON has launched the Kickstarter campaign for Rising Sun. The game, designed by Eric Lang, with artwork by Karl Kopinski, and featuring miniatures from Mike McVey, the game takes players back to Feudal Japan, putting them in charge of the various clans, all vying for power. But first, a nice cup of tea.

The Rising Sun previews continue. We've seen a bunch of the minis. We've learned a bit about diplomacy. But what about when talking fails and fighting is the only way to resolve issues? Well, we get a look at how that works here in this preview.

There's a lot of games out there that have you battle it out against your opponent, crushing them with the might of your military industrial complex. Few include a way to talk your way out of conflict, though. Rising Sun is in that latter category, with diplomacy and alliance-forming being a major part of the game play. But how does it work? We get a bit of a look of it in this new preview.

It seems you all have been just eating up the Rising Sun previews we've had. And I can't blame you. I'm really looking forward for this one, too. Well, we've seen a lot of miniatures, but what about gameplay? CMON has posted up a short interview with Eric Lang were they get a bit into the overall way the game works.

With every new preview of the minis coming out in Rising Sun, I know I'm getting a bit more excited to see the final game. This game looks like it's going to be pushing the boundaries of what single-piece figures in a board game can look like. Here's another couple previews.

Rising Sun is gonna have a lot of awesome minis in it. If there's one thing that the various previews have shown, it's that. Well, there's a couple new minis they're showing off for the game. Take a look for yourself.

The Rising Sun Kickstarter draws ever-closer. We're less than a month away from its launch. CMON has posted up some more of the miniatures that will be available as part of the game, if you'd like to take a look.

Well, the latest CMON Kickstarter has come to an end. Rise of Moloch did rather well, getting $1.17mil. But if you're not a fan of steampunk stuff, maybe that wasn't the game for you. Well, then you'll want to perhaps check out the next game hitting Kickstarter for the company. Those that liked Blood Rage will definitely want to check it out.

One of the next games to be coming from CMON was one that got a lot of hype when it was announced last year at Gen Con (for good reason, if you ask me, since I got to take a look at it while at the show). Well, the previews are really starting to roll out. Have a look for yourself.

Here at Gen Con, CMON has made a couple announcements about new games they're working on. The one that I've heard creating the most buzz is Rising Sun. For those that like Blood Rage, you're going to want to pay attention, as the "gang's back together" that worked on that game: Eric Lang design, Adrian Smith artwork, and Mike McVey doing the minis. A few media people were given a closer look at what the game will be like.

So, it's coming up to 8pm. Day 2 is definitely in the books for Gen Con 2016. It's been a very busy day. I'm tired, but still pretty amped about everything that's gone on. And I'm sure you all would like to know about some of it. There's been about a billion things to see. So, relatively, here's a rather small percentage. More will come tomorrow.
