What's up Earybody?!
Happy May! The VStheUNIVERSE team has hit the ground running since the campaign ended and we're happy to say we have some updates that we're excited to share with you now that the funds have been transferred into our account.
The BackerKit is coming!
We're assembling our BackerKit and getting everything ready for our backers as we speak! You'll be finalizing your order as well as paying for shipping in BackerKit. If you want to add any additional copies of the game, you'll be able to do so in the BackerKit. We're happy to be working with this company as they've helped thousands of projects across the world and now we're a part of it!
We're compiling all of the suggestions that people submitted from the campaign, including the KS comments + live playtests and convention appearances. We'll have more details on the voting process for this in the coming weeks.
"I'm Your Biggest Fan" pledge tier backers!
We're in the process of getting all of our demo decks back from different sources like board game shoppes and other game companies. We'll be sending a KS survey soon where we'll collect your address so we can send you your demo decks along with a special message from us.
"New Band Mate" pledge tier backers!
For our new band mates, we'll be sending out a survey before the end of the month (if not sooner) to gather some info from you. We'll take this info and then send it off to our artist so we can get your likeness in the game!
Theme Song tier backers!
If you backed our Geek Show KS campaign then you'll know what to expect here. Theme Song surveys will collect all the necessary info from you so that we can craft your theme song.
Notice a theme here? It's a lot of surveys.
Print & Play version!
We're happy that we'll be offering two different Print & Play versions of the game to our backers! We'll be releasing a P&P file that includes all of our demo cards in June, and then releasing a retail-ready P&P with all of the nice art we have at a later date.
Our TENTATIVE timeline!
MAY - Send out surveys + work with our artist to finalize some assets.
- JUNE - Finalize character portraits and begin assembling cards for PrintNinja. Conclude voting process for the expansion. First P&P version is released.
- JULY - Proofread cards & box art for errors, and work with PrintNinja to assemble P&P files.
- AUGUST - GENCON PARTY!
FALL 2018 - Begin production of game in China and await prototype copies for approval. Retail-ready P&P version released.
- WINTER - Fulfillment begins!
The above timeline is subject to change. If there are any changes to the above timeline we'll be sure to communicate them with our backers ASAP.
We're still in a state of shock at the amount of support we've gotten for this game! When we hit our goal we were stunned. We couldn't believe that all of our work paid off and that we're now going to be able to release this game that was near and dear to our hearts. The real work begins now, and we're eager to jump in with both feet.
One of our biggest supporters during the campaign was Ironrise Games, and they JUST launched their own tabletop game on Kickstarter yesterday! Please check it out! You may notice some familiar faces on the cards and in the video...
