Unfortunately I have some sad news for those who were following this game.
After I have spent over a year of development on Deep, Leder Games has told me that they will not be publishing this game in any capacity.

That means I retain the rights to the game, but now need to find another publisher if I wish for it to reach market. So if there are any interested parties out there, feel free to reach out to me!

Sorry for all those who were excited about the game, I was as well. Hopefully it will still find its way to market sooner rather than later!

I just want to express my DEEP compassion for this event. I was really looking forward to seeing this game in action, and it looks like there was quite some commitment from the team presenting it, too. Actually, I still am. I have started to learn patience, and will keep subscribed to BGG for this game in the hopes it finds a new home. Please keep us posted.

Was there a specific reason for this, or is it just a kind of "we will focus on what we estimate will yield the biggest return on investment for the end of the financial year" thing?

I was not given any real specifics about why it was canceled beyond that they were not satisfied with my design.

I thought the design was quite good however, and the feedback from those who played it was pretty positive. I was looking forward to sharing it with the world...and hopefully will still get the chance to do so in the future. Thank you for sticking around

That's a loss for Leder Games.

Let us know if there's anything we can do to help spread the word.

Thank you, Colin and the rest for your support. I am exhausting some other options and trying to make things work. Should know what approach I need to take in the next week or so.

That's a real shame. I was looking forward to this. Does this mean you won't be able to any of the art and assets that were already created? If so, that's another shame! I hope you're able to find a new publisher soon!

As a 4x fan, I was looking forward to this. It’s unfortunate, but if the game is good, it will find another publisher.

I hope it gets picked up quickly.

Will you still be play testing and posting periodically on game mechanic development? I'm really interested to see how the mechanics flesh out.


I backed the third (i think) wave of Vast on kickstarter. Really like the unique competitive nature of it. So when I saw this I got pretty excited for it.

Its in a pretty solid place in my opinion, but Patrick wants to bring another designer on board. So I would likely wait for the other designer to join the team before working on it anymore.
