WOW, I’m back! But where was I? Rehab, Narnia, locked in a spiral of depression? Let’s just say it’s a bit of all three and leave it at that! What I didn’t let slide like these goddamn updates is the ART for Satanic Panic… oh no, we have been busting our ass (well, RS’s crotchety old ass at least). And it’s looking amazing. If you didn’t have a chance to see the Kickstarter update from yesterday, we are pushing out the release by about 90 days as I MASSIVELY underestimated how long it would take to make this much art. Whoops! And if you see me in person, feel free to spank my naughty bottom as punishment (consider this update consent).
As a bonus, we continue to iterate on the development for the game, with each playtest making the final product better and better. That’s the key to a great game: a tremendous amount of dev. The more we can play it and make those small tweaks, the more amazing the game will be. So there is a bit of a blessing in disguise from the delay.
We have been busting ass on the Satan deck artwork, as we wanted it to have a very different feel from the standard ESW art. I think RS really killed it with this stuff.
Check these out.
Amazing, right? And yes, they for sure take longer to produce ☹
We also wrapped up the first FFF series of mailers (you’ll notice I have dropped the year talk as that was not working). The second set of mailers is heading off to the printer soon and I hope we can start that in September. If you haven’t received mailer 12 yet, don’t worry: It’s on the way (they went out in batches). Also, the 40 people that wanted the all-at-once option, yours is also on the way. I will be doing an online sale in June of the leftover sets for folks that missed the chance to sign up. They will be at the same price or maybe a tad higher, so the Kickstarter people don’t feel like they got screwed.
In the comments below, give me an idea of what you would like to see in the next update. We could show off more base cards, or Spellbooks, or whatever. I could show you the champions you haven’t seen yet for the base game! Just let me know…
