Any word on development/release progress? Going as planned? Releasing when, for Kickstarters and others?

Subscribed!

Even though I didn't back the KS, I'm still interested in possibly checking this out once it hits retail.

Edit: you may already have seen this, but the last KS update included the current beta ruleset: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/532062403/warquest/post.... That was from Oct 1.

Hey Folks!

Thanks for starting this forum! Working with L4 and Glenn on the final rounds of playtesting and producing miniatures is the short answer. Not much more to report just yet, but we will for sure post updates via the Kickstarter page very soon, so please check in there for more details soon!

I must say, of the countless boardgame kickstarters I've backed, this one releases the least updates, by a huge margin. Not that I'm fond of daily update spam, but something to keep me interested and confident the game is being tested please. I'm slightly worried.

I hope it still goes but I am glad I reduced my pledge down to just $2 for the book and maybe a pledge manager. If I had gone all in I would be very worried at this point.

I have had way longer waits on Kickstarter. Still not worried at all.

Thanks for your patience on this project guys (and gals)!

I believe that you will be extremely pleased with how we have spent the time. Here is the update that went out today with a TON of new content (all new, upgraded artwork and more).

Excellent update Glenn, just what I was hoping for. Sorry for any impatience, I'm just being a bit more proactive on status reports of backed kickstarters. A few recent bad projects have tainted me. meeple

I totally understand!

Kickstarter is great because it allows more designers the ability to get funded and make games. The problem inherent in that is that many of the first-time publishers have never dealt with production before and they get surprised by the costs and details of manufacturing, shipping, warehousing, distribution, etc.

Luckily everyone involved in this project is an old hand at game publishing. We took some extra time on this one, but only because we wanted to take the game to the next level.
