Language patch

Some cultural items are sold several times to the same person. First, we have the theatrical release. Then the DVD. Then the cable. Then the collector's edition with the director's cut and unreleased footage. It's the same movie, but you buy it several times.

What is a publisher to do with the English version of a board game already being sold and enjoyed throughout a non-English community of gamers?

One of the answers is to let them upgrade their games by offering a language patch instead of asking them to buy the whole game again.

The Alien Frontiers: Aurora patch is 24 translated Alien Tech cards that supporters will get at the Data Crystal level.

It's small gesture. I hope it's appreciated.

Paris in June

I was delighted to present Alien Frontiers and the crowdfuding project on http://www.ulule.com/af this week-end at Paris est Ludique !, the yearly open air game convetion held in Paris.

The game has been constantly played over the two days. Many visitors had seen the project on ulule and wanted to test the game before supporting the project. Given the number of pledges received since Saturday evening I think they did like the game very much. Now I wish I could have gone and presented the game in many other locations around the world.

The metal dice and the tower are available at the Gravity Manipulator level, but can be added to most of the other support levels as well.

We're about to roll out an update on the Alien Frontiers: Aurora project page at http://www.ulule.com/af

We're implementing the following changes:

1. New shipping option: free local pick up at qualified partners (clubs and stores) under the Aurora in your club operation.

2. New reward levels: Data Crystal, Lunar Mine and Raider's Outpost.

3. New reward: Alien Frontiers for iPad for European App Store users (big thanks to CMG!)

4. New reward: the "Art of Alien Frontiers" pdf (big thanks to CMG!)

5. Updated reward: immediate access to the Alien Frontiers beta on http://www.mirthworks.com (big thanks to the Mirthworks team!)

6. Simpler presentation: In order to reduce the clutter in the rewards column, the rewards from lower levels which are available at higher levels are going to be indicated systematically as "1 x everything you get at level X".
