Just watched the kickstarter for Rising Sun.
Miniatures look awesome. The bigger cards with the Oni/Kami?Monster art look cool....

.....but the map and the cards for the actions and (to a lesser extent) the seasons, look pretty horrible. They look like homemade, clip art cards...the horrible coloured box frames, the cheap "ink" outlines of the castles and people....i love minimalist Japanese ink artwork...but those look pretty average

Does anyone know if the art on those cards and on the gameboard is final or not? Just prototypes? I was looking for that kind of statement on the kickstarter page but couldn't find anything to that effect....

meeple I'm guessing prototypes, compared to the final art for Blood Rage.

Really? The Blood Rage Kickstarter seems to have displayed the FINAL artwork. My guess is this is the final work. CMON rarely goes to KS with a partially done product.

I hope it's final. I think it looks good and matches the theme well.

Did you like artwork for the cards that show seppuku/hsotage etc?

And the cards that show marshall etc too?

I thought those looked really cheap.....

The map?!! The map didn't look good to you? Wow, had no idea tastes could be that different.

One man's "cheap" is another man's "thematically correct minimalism". cool

This. It's based on Japanese calligraphy and art. Less is more.

Like I said..I'm a big fan of Japanese calligraphy and art...been living in Japan for many years and have seen lots and lots of it

But from what I saw on the kickstarter video of those particular cards...looked to me (and it seems like I am in the minority in my opinion)that it was a tacky version of it

Hopefully I'm wrong though

And yeah...the gameboard looked average to me....the colours looked a bit 90s or something....which was weird considering how awesome the miniatures and the other artwork cards looked....I have seen images on-line of other game boards that looked average and then seen that they look much better when you see the physical copy but hhmmm

Will have to wait and see I guess

I agree with you. I am hoping that things change but not feeling its likely.

Yeah...I get what they are going for with the ink style line work on those simple colour box cards....but it looks basic rather than artful and minimalist...

..actually doesn't look like much has progressed on those cards since the prototype the dice tower guys played

People in Japan I've showed it to think it looks pretty horrible.
