Update #27

November Update

Hello to everyone!

 

We are at last very pleased to announce our cooperation with the manufacturer Starry Games!

http://www.starrygames.com

 

As we promised you, the quality of the game components is our first priority. We want to create games that our/your kids will be able to play years from now. In Essen, we visited many manufacturers'€™ booths, and although we were impressed by most of them, we were amazed by Starry Games'€™ miniatures.

 

Please take a look at the following videos about Starry Games'€™ printing tech. We think you'€™ll understand why we made this decision!

Moreover, our manufacturer has pledged to deliver Theosis to us quickly. This means that the September 2019 estimated date that we announced is cancelled! We are now looking at getting Theosis to you much earlier, possibly even in early summer 2019.

We will continue keeping you informed with news on the manufacturing process. We hope to have another update with much more news before the end of December!

October Update



Hello to everyone!

October was an overwhelming month for us. As we are new to the industry, the Essen International Games Fair was our first experience as Exhibitors. We tried the best we could to make a decent showing. To be honest, we did make some mistakes in preparing our booth - for example, our banners could have been more illuminated and we had problems with a lot of stuff arriving from customs.

Despite that, the overall impression we made was quite satisfactory according to both our backers and a lot of new people we met in Essen. We had the chance to show off our miniatures which impressed everyone. More importantly, however, we got the chance to play Theosis with a LOT of people and most importantly with you, our backers. We served you drinks and had fun killing you in the arena and getting killed by you. Best of all, everyone had a great time.

Most importantly, however, we had the chance to do great work. All the boardgame manufacturers who we had already spoken to were there. We had the opportunity to discuss all aspects of Theosis with them with emphasis on the specifics of our game'€™s construction. As all construction stretch goals are fulfilled, we want Theosis to clearly feel like one of the most high-quality games you own.

Moreover, we had the chance to examine carefully samples from all the miniature manufacturers and discuss details on the molds that will be used. Especially challenging is the creation of the bigger miniatures. We now feel more secure that the manufacturer we choose will have experience in the field on manufacturing highly detailed miniatures and we have seen proof of miniatures they'€™ve already created for other well-known games.

Last but also important, another issue we discussed in detail with manufacturers was the delivery date. Now we know that the Estimated Date of Delivery was September 2019, but this was just an estimate. We are planning to deliver earlier than this if at all possible. Delivering as soon as possible and being able to secure this was a really important aspect of our discussions with the manufacturers.

In the next update, we will inform you of our progress on our rules with the new dual Hero abilities and so on. Perhaps more exciting, however, is that we will hopefully present you with our new manufacturer, their credentials, and an updated new, earlier estimated delivery date!

To all of you who managed to come to Essen and honored us with your presence in our booth, a really big THANK YOU! We really had a great time with you guys. We will attempt to meet more of you at other conventions!

September Report



Hello to Everyone

We would like to share with you the progress we went through during September and also coordinate with you our nexts Steps during the month of October. It is going to be a critical month for Theosis as you will see.

We will start with our most challenging '€œquest'€ ..  

The Essen International Games Fair.
If you can visit you will find Dreamcraft Games at:  

Halle 6 Stand 6A104  

next to terraforming mars as fas as we know.

There will be seven of us there and we would be really happy to meet you, buy you a beer, discuss any aspects of the game with you, talk to you about our future plans and most importantly play Theosis with you!
Please sent us a message to let us know you are coming, and we will be waiting for you!

Now as far as the design of the new Rituals and new Hero Abilities are concerned:
They are Ready!
We will not finalise them by ourselves however.
We promised you that we do want you as part of the creative procedure and we will keep it this way. From our part we created the different Rituals and Different Hero abilities and tested them in terms of balancing as our first priority is to preserve the delicate balance of power.
However deciding among different valid options and expanding our lore is something that we can do together with the ones of you who would like to participate in this exciting procedure.

Therefore we have created a Secret Facebook Group where all of the'€¦ '€œbrewing'€ will take place.
We decided that we will use Facebook as our communication platform as it offers valuable tools as polls and the ability to upload photos and files but most of all most people are familiar with it and its interface is really easy.
In order for us to invite you to this secret group you will need to be friend with us well actually with one of us. Therefore I do invite you to add me on Facebook.
Username: Panagiotis Aiollus Laskaris
(I am really a nice guy I will not invade anyones privacy)
You do not have to be friends with each other or anyone else. You just need to be friends with Aiollus and we will invite you to the group.
If you do have a facebook account but feel that you want more privacy please let me remind you that you can set your facebook preferences the way you feel more comfortable so people who you assign to the category Boardgame for example can only see your name and nothing else.
For you not having a facebook account I humbly suggest you take only 2 minutes to create an empty account with just your name so you can participate to our Group. It will be really fun.

Now on procedure we will follow on the group.
There are 6 Rituals and there are 3 extra Hero Abilities for 12 Heroes. These are a lot!
The work is divided into 13 days. One for the Ritual and 12 for the Heroes.
Each day we will discuss the different Ethos that our Hero may follow.
This will not be a blunt Light or Dark choice. More Lore and Flavor decisions will be made and the skills will be set up accordingly.

For Example we have our Paladins background. Not is the time to expand his story. What happens from now on. What will he face in his storyline and how will his actions change him. Will he follow a more pious path and gain more Healing and Protective skills or will he follow a more Avenging path gaining more offensive Retribution Skills. And yes we are a bit inspired by the world of warcraft talents trees. We will make minor changes to our illustrations to illustrate better the duality of each path so you will have the same illustration but a bit altered for each path and we will produce new lore for each path. Therefore your choices in the group will have as much effect as possible.

To have me enter you to the group simply sent a Messenger message to Panagiotis Aiollus Laskaris in the next 3 days and on Thursday 4 of October I will invite you to the group!

After these 13 days are over we will have our final version of Rituals and Skills. Keep in mind that all these option have been play tested to the best of our ability. However as soon as the final version is ready we will be able to playtest the final version where we will ask you to remotely join us and play with us. We will sent print to play files and we will explain how this will be done as soon as the design procedure is final. Those who will join us in Essen will have the opportunity to play with us.

Now as far as the Rulebook is concerned. It has been expanded with 8 more pages to include the Solo and Co op Rules. As far as the new skills are decided they will also be included in the rulebook and it will be finalised.
Our supported languages are at the moment English, French, German, Spanish, Russian. If there are some of you who would want to see our rulebook in more languages please sent us a message with you language and we will discuss it with you in more detail.
Now as far as showing better the rules the feedback we got is that not a lot of people read rulebooks.
Therefore in Essen we will film moments of playing the game with actual people (who of course will want to participate) and we will create small videos showing of the gameplay of the main gain as well as the solo and co op version.

We are now actually waiting for our monster miniatures to be produced and we are estimating that we will have them 3d printed in about 16 days so we will have an update with photos of the 3d printed monster miniatures!

Last but not least at 16 of October we will announce our new projects. If all things go well as we expect in the final design of our Heroes Skills and Rituals we will like to establish this procedure to the designing of all our next projects. Ideally we would like to invite you and have you participate in the design procedure of all our next projects. Designing a game might be more fun then you might thing and we would like to share this creative experience with you!

Update #23

Stretch Goal Unlocked !?!



The most amazing thing happened. I was double checking the Stretch Goals and noticed that the next Stretch Goal was set to unlock at 27,000. This was most probably a mistype as we really wanted the Goal to be at 26,385 euros.
Happily enough we got funded at 26,387 euros! That means that if we want to be fair we have to give you this one!
Therefore our Initiative counter will be a Metal Coin !!! :)

Stay tuned we will have a lot of interesting things from now on'€¦
