90 dollars is a lot of money, and there is also the risk of facing customs. I will have to wait until it's officialy released, I'm afraid shake

I'm confused. There is no pitch video. There isn't a single picture of game components. What are people throwing their money at?

I pledged with a 29 day window to change my mind.

I pledged because of all the fun I have had from Sentinels of the Multiverse. I am hoping this turns out as good, and I am willing to give the campaign a boost while I wait for rules and previews.

How is that "throwing" my money at it?

Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.

I'm not even considering backing this until I see some components and an overview of the rules. Sentinels is great, but backing without knowing what you're spending money on is unwise.

I love Sentinals but there is not nearly enough info for this game for me to invest yet.

This is an underwhelming launch.

"...from the creators of Sentinels of the Multiverse!"

Really, how much more do you need to know?

Reminds me of an article a read a few days ago about how a band's best selling album often isn't their best album but rather the one that came out after their best one.

I don't know how much info will be released by >G on day one, but I do know that they have been playtesting this one allot. Based on their track record, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, plus I'm a sucker for space based games. Unlike others though, this one is co-op.

I like co-op, I love Sentinels, I'm ... okay with space.
Less happy with the races clearly being elves, orcs, etc. Kind of wish that were at least a little more subtle, but still.

I personally feel like its the naming. Like I wouldn't have seen the connection to the Dwarfs and Orcs unless they explicitly mentioned it.

Really? You can look at that dwarf picture and not immediately see a dwarf? The others aren't as bad, but still.

I like it.

Fantasy in space has barely been explored, and I have not been a fan of most previous attempts (WH40k and Star Wars). I did like the old Dungeons & Dragon's setting Spelljammer, and this may scratch a similar itch.

The first pilot they have shown flies around in a giant dragon claw. That is a fun idea, and I look forward to one of the Opposition being a very angry mate to that dragon.

The way I saw it I thought it was more of a lion race until I read the text to understand they are Dwarf's beard.
