Wow, we hit that stretch goal super fast! To celebrate, here are a preview of four of our favorite items in the base set!
Now that we’ve hit the “base set upgrade” we’re going to include some of the features of the DELUXE PACK in the BASIC PACK: The basic pack will now include a sampling of blank cards that users can draw on, as well as it’s own mini-comic that will contain different comics from the DELUXE PACK version. These rewards *stack* too, so if you ordered the DELUXE PACK you’re also getting everything in the BASIC PACK as well, which means you’ll have even more blank cards and even more comics.
But also, based on the comments, it sounds like you guys want more brand new cards. Fear not! Just because we don’t have expansion cards listed as stretch goals doesn’t mean we’re done adding new cards to the game. We’re still working on new promo cards that will be added to the DELUXE PACK for free, like Ophelia from To Be Or Not To Be:
We’re currently working on the art for Hamlet and King Hamlet, who will accompany Ophelia in the DELUXE PACK. We’re also working on securing more deals to make promotional cards based on characters you might be familiar with, and you’ll be hearing about those as we lock them in.
The DELUXE PACK’s cards are sort of an experimental thing that we can play around with without worrying about the integrity of the proper game. We expect cards in the base set and expansion to be recognizable to anyone, but it’s okay if cards in the DELUXE PACK are based on niche things, like Ryan North’s hamlet book. And we just realized we can totally just… put in some really wacky cards in the DELUXE PACK that are made up by our backers.
So, lets do that! In the comment thread of this update, suggest some items you’d like us to include in the DELUXE PACK! Check out the items shown above for inspiration.
Items are more fun when they’re open-ended, and can change the flow of battle without giving the user an automatic win. The Wishing Star, listed above, is by far my favorite item. It’s also important to the universe of Story War, as you’ll notice the Wishing Star is a recurring motif throughout our art, sort of like the Triforce in Zelda. Try watching our video again and see how many times you can spot it!
We’ll go through the comments and pick THREE of our favorite item card concepts and we’ll draw them and post them for you guys in a future update. Be sure to read everyone else’s comments and let us know which ones you like the best!
you guys should really get into this! Not only its a REALLY FUN GAME, but it also has GREAT SUPPORT behind it!
Personally, the best tier would be the 40$ Tier, but dont worry if you cant pitch in so much… The Print and Play tier is also really good for a mere 10$!!
