Bored as I was, I thought it would be fun to go back in time and read the earliest threads of this forum. Boy was I right!

The excitement when the kickstarter began (we've reached 10k of the 35k goal woho), the complaints of the lack of rulebook, the complaints at the very expensive price of $100 (oh, if they only knew) for only a few minis, the debates of the nude nature of the female models.. those discussions seem kinda adorable now

Ahh well I have no point of this thread really. Just looking forward to the kickstarter in november so I can get as excited as these people were four years ago

I do not believe the "innocence" of the original campaign will be back though. KDM is a known quantity now, so excitement will not be the same

No, of course not. But I think it will be a fun KS experience nonetheless and poots hopefully (probably) has some surprises up his sleeve. Wonder what his funding goal will be though.

I popped my kickstarter cherry with Kingdom Death.

I'd seen some of the earlier big money makers and almost taken the plunge, but Kingdom Death's Monster Hunter meets Dark Souls aesthetics finally took me deep down into that crowdfunding rabbit hole.


Never to recover!
It really was a special campaign.

Actually, I would say that hype might be even higher, now that people know the kind of beast KD:M is to contend with. I bet and hope that this KS be ubersucessful.

Only the debates about nude female figures never changed...

Which is why most adults do the adult thing, and ignore those people.

Naw, the thread from way back when is locked now, so that's an update.

(looks like there were some personal insults, and honestly, the conversation had run its course)

From original gameplay demos and pictures it definitely has changed a lot... that said, it's hardly surprising with nearly 4 year production cycle. I love that it's not stopping either. New KS is definitely going to draw attention.

Poots is likely to follow tradition and have 2016 KS ship in 2020. But now the box will be a real human sized coffin box.

I wasn't on KS back in those days, so I'll be pretty damn excited! But I get what you're saying. It won't be the same as the first time. Few things are!

Poots is a smart man. He doesn't ignore people. He just had a different solution to their issue - make smutty male minis as well.

Unless you are counting the one starting survivor from the halloween gift bag dressed as a cat or the two male witches...none of which are pin-ups, then I have not seen a single male pin-up on sale at the store.

There are rumors of such things, but no show of actual product.

Why do they have to be labeled as pinups for you to consider them smutty?

Glue-Ups.

You heard it here first.

Google pin-up girls and tell me they aren't.

As for the Glue-ups...I'm really torn between a chuckle and punching my face with a wall. Could go either way, really.

Maybe just have some milk. Hmmm. Good ole milk!
