I bought this game a couple of weeks ago and I´m enjoying it a lot, but it seems to have a heavy backstory and I can´t find it. From the kickstarter updates and some other places, it seems to me that the game has some kind of story going on (with the freedom 5 becoming freedom 6 without legacy, etc) but in the official page I only found characters, villans and enviroment descriptions. There is a place where I can find all that background story cronologically or it´s just bits and pieces here and there with no real narrative backstory going on?

It's mostly just been released as bits and blurbs. There's been one issue of a comic released as a Kickstarter bonus, but other than that it only exists in the summaries and flavor text.

It´s a pitty, they should recopilate it, to write some story to fill the gaps, and put it somewhere on their web.

Part of my enjoyment of this game is how the story is slowly leaking out in the flavour text on the cards and the hints they post on their forums, I would not want to know it all right now.

However, they have just started to release the comic that the kickstarter backers have already seen, first two pages went up about an hour ago!

I thought it was already released. I won't ruin anything but its a good story nothing ground breaking but good enough.

I don't mind seeing more story stuff. The comic was fun. What I think is really cool is that they've got a pretty coherent world put together. I think it really says a lot that we have people thinking that there was like volumes and volumes of stuff to read.

I think it is better to have the backstory told as it is now - flavour text, character bios, the occasional comic issue. It leaves more room for imagination and exploration. It will be great if the card art and flavour text would match on every card.

What would be awesome would be a timeline of when each comic issue was published.

I´m ok with the sparse info of the sentinels universe as a whole, I just thought that each expansion had some kind of mini story justifiying the new villains, new enviroments and new hero verions.

Exactly. It will be even more awesome if it is 'official'.
