Does it seem odd to have so little out there for a game that is suppose to hit crowdfunding within a couple of weeks?

Not particularly, most prelaunch information on Kickstarters is pretty minimal. The creator used to be quite active on BGG, but decreased presence after he was attacked on the forums for some of his aesthetic choices.

There's been a lot of details given in the backer discord servers (such as gameplay information, miniature/map sculpts, playtest pictures), which'll no doubt be shared on launch. The game will be China-ready on launch, so everything will be finalized - sculpts, gameplay, etc...

I'm not sure any pricing has been announced, nor how many expansions or what they are, but I'm 99% sure it's well under Cthulhu Wars. My gut says somewhere around where Orcs Must Die! was.

Tenative preliminary not at all confirmed could be different pricing puts it at around $100 for a base pledge (including stretch goals), and around $200-250 for the all-in (which includes the core game, stretch goals, and 3 expansions).

Geez....$100 for this and then in less than a month another $100 for Edge of Darkness. Games are getting ridiculously expensive.shakeshakeshake

We literally just did a kickstarter for a fine worker-placement game that only cost $49. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1816687860/evil-high-pr...

Planet Apocalypse has an abundance of maps, counters, figures, and cards, and so sadly costs more than did an Avalon Hill game back in the day.

Yeah I gotcha. I am still very much interested but I need to see more and how the gameplay works out. Also how the solo game works. That is important to me.

There will be a full playthrough video, plus a how-to-play video. Plus more playthroughs posted throughout the campaign.

The solo game is exactly like the multiplayer except you have to run 2 characters which is actually not amazingly challenging.

Check out the turntables! And we have a TON of updates coming that I've already written with spotlights on various heroes & demons, as well as Design Corners on stuff like why the upgrades work like they do.

I hate to act like a total newb but I have no idea what you’re talking about Sandy? Not sure where the turntables are?? But if given a link I will begin to devour that information.

I tried to post them here on BGG but guess they're not approved or something. BGG is a surprisingly hostile environment for me, personally.

What time is this going to be up on kickstarter and will you have a preview page??

Also, really sorry for all the issues you've had to deal with over the years on this forum.

It launched around 10:30 CST, roughly. As I type around 1:15 EST, it has 400 backers, and is over 55% funded.
