The Essence

The Essence is a strategy board game for 2-5 players. Each player represents one of the factions struggling for dominance in this magic-punk world of mysterious powers and powerful technology. During the game you will develop your "flying kingdom" by building great monuments and locations, hiring loyal advisors, fighting other nations and reading prophecy fragments, all of which will bring you closer to your ultimate goal – rebuilding the Great Crystal and becoming the Emperor of the New World!

Great box cover, nice layout in the rules, solid graphic design. Definitely a KS I would look at more closely.

A couple thoughts for revision:

1 - It would be great if you used a couple more keywords for mechanisms in your early description of the game. I can see that there is some city building and deck building, but it's not clear to me what I'm supposed to be doing to win. The win con itself isn't in the video or the early description.

2 - I would reduce the space given to each faction on the opening page and do that in early updates. Foreground the gameplay a bit more.

3 - your CUBE FACTORY intro clip is about twice as long as it should be, at least for something at the beginning of the video.

4 - You say this is being made by CUBE factory, but then Big Bad Wolf studios is featured under "about us." We need more detail about who you are.

5 - your reliance in your video of having worked with big publishers doesn't add anything to your pitch if you don't say which publishers and products you've worked on.

6 - The biggest gap for me would be that you have no reviews at all.

Good luck!

Hey, game looks intriguing. Some honest feedback, though: I know I'm probably in the minority here, but fwiw, I'd be more inclined to back if the art for the female player characters were a little more reasonable and a little less exploitative.

Not trying to stir anything up, and only mentioning on the off chance stuff isn't finalized. Just my two cents.
