Ya falta menos para que termine y estamos en la recta final del Kickstarter del Dreadball. Se ha desbloqueado el décimo MVP y viene de camino más versiones para los Veer-myn y peanas de aturdidos para lo mismo.
Además anuncian la tercera temporada del Dreadball un nuevo reglamento que incluirá partidas de cuatro jugadores, campos de juegos mayores, y la inclusión de robots gigantes en el campo de juego.
Por un error Mantic se salto un nivel del Kickstarter y como compensación va a dejar elegir a cada uno a partir de cierta participiación un robot gigante a su elección de todos los que salgan.
Unbelievable – you guys are just knocking over milestone after milestone!
Guaranteed pre-Christmas Shipping Strikers have now sold out. We’ve put a new Striker!level up that will pull stock from our second print run which will ship in January.
We are also going to close Jack and Keeper out and put the stock to one side to ensure we have enough stock to cover pledges of Cheerleader and up - these are still guaranteed for pre-Christmas shipping!
In addition, we’ve just got Rico Van Dien – simply amazing!
He’s now included free at Striker!
Up next, by popular demand:
$485,000 – Veer-myn Alternate Sculpts
If we pass this stretch goal we’ll be able to fund three new alternate sculpts for theSkittersneak Stealers Veer-myn Team – two Strikers and a Guard. Sculpting these alternate models is like funding a whole new team, so it’s a big undertaking and one we’re sure you’ll help us with!
To say thank you we will upgrade four Veer-myn players to these new sculpts* meaning you'll get more variety in your set!
But that’s not all - DreadBall is a violent game and big models on the board sometimes get in the way of play when they’ve been knocked over. To help with this, we’ll sculpt a “Prone” counter to denote knocked over models at the same time and include one free at Striker! – at the very least it’ll protect your paint jobs!
And finally, if we hit this goal, we can start talking about this guy…
* Ships Q2 2013
The ultimate test of skill and tactics for any major-league coach, the colossal stadiums of Ultimate DreadBall reverberates with the screams and cheers of millions of fans. Hulking mechs and monstrous aliens are thrown onto the huge pitches to play ball and teams from all over the galaxy clamour to compete in the hope of winning the competition’s considerable prize.
Season 3 - DreadBall goes Ultimate!
Ultimate DreadBall is the second expansion to the core ruleset. In short – it’s more teams and more MVPs, rules for bigger arenas, 4 player options and Multi-hex giant Robots of awesomeness! Check out Jake’s fantastic post over on Quirkworthy for more details!
When we started this kickstarter creating Ultimate DreadBall seemed impossible – now it is within touching distance! With your help it’s going to happen!
At $500,000 – the Ultimate DreadBall Ruleset and Board become a reality. We'll chain Jake to his desk and get him to create the most advanced set of rules to challenge even the best coaches in the game.
If we reach this stretch goal we will be able to produce the DreadBall Ultimate Expansion Rulebook – and give you a digital copy in every pledge level!
Not only that, but we will be able to create a new DreadBall Ultimate pitch – a large mounted game board with brand new art – so you can play with 2 teams per side – or the ultimate 4 player game experience. Playtests will dictate the look, but we need the space for some multi-hex beasties and multiplayer games so it’s going to be big! This will go up in the Extras ready for you to add to your pledge.
BUT – we’re still not finished!
Back when we passed through the £380,000 stretch goal, we slept too long (shame on us!) and the stretch goal between Nightshade and Helder was bigger than normal. If we pass $500,000 the next few stretches will be to fund some multi-hex beasts and giant robots – originally all of these were planned as add-ons in the extras section.
To celebrate the $500,000 milestone (and rectify the ‘missing’ stretch goal) you’ll each be able to select one of the multi-hex beasties – and add it for free to a pledge of Striker!and up.
To make this happen however, we’re going to need a couple of BIG things …
DreadBall Mech – coming to a stretch goal soon!
