Check out the new Neoprene Playmats, our newest Spirit Spotlight and more!
about 2 months ago – Wed, Dec 04, 2019 at 01:16:24 AM

Hello backers! Maggie here with your December update! We are excited to show off the new and improved Neoprene playmat! In addition to the new playmats, we will be updating you on the editing process, showing you a new Spirit Spotlight and letting you know where to find us at PAX Unplugged!

Neoprene Playmat

In the first Spirit Island Kickstarter, we introduced the neoprene playmats, but for Spirit Island: Jagged Earth we were able to collect feedback and improve upon the concept! These new playmats are 30"x 35" as opposed to the original 24"x 28"playmat. We've also specifically outlined key gameplay designs, such as ocean boundaries and map coloration and included new terrain hints to simplify identifying land types. Like the first playmat, the icons on it are "future-proofed" to include any potential new token references.

Neoprene playmat with close up section to show icons!

Editing Process

We are excited to announce that we are in the file stages of prepping files to send over to the factory! Huge shout out to our development team and SaRae Henderson, lead Graphic Designer, for working their tails off to get all of the files out the door! We currently expect to send the files within the next week or so.

See ya'll next year!

Editing update, Spirit Spotlight and more!

Hey folks! Maggie here with your November update! In this update we are going to update you on the review and editing process, show off another Spirit Spotlight and share some info about the Spirit Island Digital IndieGoGo happening right now! 

Review and Editing Process

Last week we shared the third set of files with our playtesters, the Jagged Earth rulebook, and we are already receiving excellent feedback! We will be sharing the fourth, and final, set of files in about a week and playtesters will have the same two week period to provide feedback. Once that is completed we will do some internal passes over the edited content and then be ready to send it off to the factory!

Review and editing process kicking off!
4 months ago – Wed, Oct 02, 2019 at 03:07:34 AM

Hey folks! Maggie here and a happy first day of October to all of you! This update will cover where we are in the editing and review process, where we are with art, something new and exciting from our digital partners at Handelabra Games and a look into the past with our first Spirit Spotlight! 

Review Process

This week our playtesters will receive the first of four sets of items to review. We will give them two weeks to review each set so it will take around 2 months for our playtesters to review everything because this is a HUGE expansion! :) 

Art

As of yesterday morning, 87% of the art had been commissioned. Since this expansion is enormous that is well over 100 pieces of art so far! 

The art commissioning process is tricky, but Eric provides very detailed descriptions of what idea he is trying to bring to life and then our graphic design team finds the artists capable of doing that! We have had the privilege of working with very talented artists!

Handelabra Games

Spirit Island the video game is finally coming to life! Handelabra Games has worked with us previously to create the digital format of Sentinels of the Multiverse, allowing us to share our games with thousands of fans all over the world, and now they are about to do the same thing with Spirit Island!

Spirit Spotlight

Below is our first Spirit Spotlight where we take an in-depth look at how a spirit functions! And, in honor of October, we are kicking it off with Bringer of Dreams and Nightmares! Click below to check out the video!
