Kickstarter: Dystopian World Expansion

Spartan Games haben einen neuen Kickstarter gestartet mit dem Namen Dystopian World Expansion.

Kickstarter_Dystopian_World_Expansion_01

Kickstarter_Dystopian_World_Expansion_02

Dystopian Wars is the ultimate massed battle war game which uses highly-detailed 1/1200th scale miniatures to bring a Victorian era world to life for you on the gaming table. In this incredible setting the great nations of the world are locked in a devastating world war, with incredible machines of war, fuelled by a strange new technology called Element 270, battling for supremacy.

Players control powerful Battle Groups using a sophisticated rules engine that connects all theatres of war together: Air, Sea and Land. The innovative Spartan Exploding D6 dice mechanic delivers exciting gameplay and the rules cater for a myriad of combat options within a game system that already has over 500 models available for it! This expansion campaign is an exciting development for the Dystopian World. Based on the wish list of our worldwide gaming community, we have assembled an array of exciting new products.

Delivering the Products:

This major expansion of the Dystopian World requires significant resources (3D sculpting, graphics design, retail packaging design, writing, manufacturing, etc.) to bring it to fruition, and this Kickstarter is designed to accelerate that development for you. Our intent is to heavily resource this work with the funding so that we can deliver all Pledges by the end of March 2017. As indicated by many Kickstarters, issues do arise during projects, but we have selected a funding level we are confident will enable us to circumvent any potential obstacles and hit our deadline for you. That said, an invasion by a superior Alien Species would cause us all delivery problems!

It is also important to understand that these products will also have a retail release, but not at the expense of Kickstarter backers. Please note that when our Store Bolt-ons are made available any store that backs the Kickstarter will see their product shipped at exactly he same time as any other backer.

The Products:

A survey of our worldwide gaming community identified several key products that they wanted developed for the Dystopian Wars gaming system. We have used this feedback to create a Kickstarter full of what we believe to be the products you want to see. Let’s look at them:

Operation: Ice Maiden 2-Playter Starter Set Two of the Dystopian World’s most powerful nations come together in our awesome new 2-player set as they battle for control of the Baltic Sea! Naval forces of the Prussian Empire are steaming for the fabled city of Konigsberg to relieve it from enemy attacks. But facing them is a Russian Coalition fleet full of new war machines and led by the massive Murmansk Fleet Operations Vessel. The Prussians, however, have their own array of new ships and their secret weapon – Ice Maiden – the largest ship to ever be built in the Dystopian World that just happens to be made from an iceberg! Both behemoths of the sea are represented as full-size digitally painted card sheets which feature within the campaign scenarios.

Our brand new 2-player set brings together over 45 stunningly detailed models, plus all the materials needed to play (dice, rules, tokens, templates, scenery, campaign guide and TWO softback copies of the brand new Dystopian Wars 2.5 Edition Core Rulebook). This Starter Set is perfect for new players to start their Dystopian adventures, and a fantastic expansion for existing fans of the game and represents superb value for money.

  • Coole Sache. Auch dauernd jemand was von “das System ist tot” erzählt. Ich würde glatt mit machen, wenn ich nicht schon wegen Weihnachten überstrapaziert wäre. Vielleicht wirds dann ja was, wenn die Sachen im Handel sind.
    Eine deutsche Übersetzung des Regelwerkes mit ordentlichem/ übersichtlichem Layout wäre das Tüpfelchen auf dem I.

    • Wenn 100.000 Pfund erreicht werden, sind Übersetzungen angekündigt. Ich denke auch, dass das dem Spiel sehr gut tun würde.

  • Nun ja, die Starterboxen kostet halt auch über den Kickstarter den üblichen Preis. Man kann Spartan da nur Glück und Erfolg wünschen, ich bin mit denen aber mittlerweile fertig.

    Ach ja, kleine Anmerkung trotzdem: diesen sehr hohen Baserand um die Wasserflächen sollten die schleunigst wieder entfernen. Vor allem bei dem russischen Reparaturschiff sieht das sehr komisch aus.

  • Ich finde das Angebot recht schwach. Macht auf mich den Eindruck, als hielte man es für unnötig, den Kunden zu umwerben, denn das Geld bekommt man ja auch so. Auf diese Weise allerdings nicht von mir.

  • Anscheinend will Spartan da jeden Handschlag über den Kickstarter finanzieren. Anders kann ich mir die 50.000 GBP als Erfolgsschwelle nicht erklären. Oder wird plötzlich auf Kunststoffspritzguss umgestellt?
    Auch finde ich den Namen irreführend, da es in erster Linie keine Expansion ist, sondern eine neue Edition. Die interessanten Sachen zur Erweiterung wie die vor Ewigkeiten versprochenen Kampagnenerweiterungen sind vollständig Stretchgoals.

    Ich werde jedenfalls nicht mitmachen.

    • Die Kampagnenregeln sind im Grundregelbuch enthalten. Bei den beiden Kampagnenbücher die als Stretchgoals kommen handelt es sich um Hintergrundbücher

  • Ich hoffe sie haben Erfolg.
    Das Setting und die Modelle hätten es jedenfalls verdient und vielleicht werden die Regeln ja wirklich besser/ übersichtlicher.

  • Na, dann verwirklichen die Briten ja doch endlich ihr Projekt Hab(b)akuk.
    Wenn auch nur in…klein..
    Ob sich Lord Mountbatten und Geoffrey Pyke freuen werden?
    😀

  • Nachdem alles von dieser Firma recht ungebraucht hier rumfliegt oder schon weiter verkauft ist, bin ich bei dem Kicksstarter raus. Für die Hardcore Fans vielleicht was, aber in der breiten Masse fürchte ich, ist das Thema ziemlich durch. Bin gespannt ob der Kickstarter überhaupt durchkommt.

      • Die Spiele von Spartan an sich sind ja auch ziemlich gut. Wer damit leben kann, vielleicht nur einmal im Jahr was neues für “sein” System zu sehen, für den treffen 80% der Kritik nicht zu.
