Where are the reviews by independent reviewers?
By the regular set of reviewers?

Interested, but passing for now.

We contacted Tom Vasel of Dice Tower who, unfortunately, indicated that he no longer does new KS previews. His people who do them know were unable to get the game in before the KS campaign ends.

Having said that, we ordered and received a few prototypes which are on their way to several gamers who indicated their interest in posting a review. We expect most of these to be posted before the campaign ends, and will announce them as they come online.

I felt the same way. I usually never pledge without reading reviews, but I pledged this one.

Between the posted rules, videos, and the amazing responsiveness of Doom and Bloom, both here and on KS, I jumped onboard.

I'm sure the upcoming reviews will support my decision. I am super psyched about this game.

Really hoping Doom and Bloom make an appearence at Gen Con (hint..hint) so I can play a game or two.

IF they do and you do I look forward to reading about it.

As promised, the first of our reviews is now in! Thanks to veteran game reviewer Michael Forder of NVS Gameplays (YouTube channel: NVS Games) for being the first to give his impressions on Doom and Bloom's SURVIVAL!

His impressions video on the game:

Also, thanks to Andrew Pickard, who has put together a couple of variants on the game, including a cooperative version (now in playtesting).

Definitely needs to be on the video list of the main page for the game.

Very positive review. Congrats.

We have reached our first stretch goal and (if we stay at that funding level or above by the end of the KS)all backers at the game level or above will receive a set of miniatures of each character in the base game!

The KS project has three days to go, and we are seeing more activity each day. Also, Kae Hutchens of Initiative Tabletop has playtested the game, liked it, and placed a nice comment on the project page. She promises an official review tomorrow, which we will post here.

Thanks again to all our backers!

As promised, here is initiativetabletop.com's review of Doom and Bloom's SURVIVAL! We feel that she really hit the nail on the head with regards to the game, and we're glad that she took the time to get it out before the project ends.

You can access the review here:

I received my KS this week and got in my first test play last night, will get a few more plays in before debuting it at the FLGS for some more new players. Will do more test plays and will have a review up at Club Fantasci, will post here when it goes up. Thanks!

First impressions so far are positive. :)
