Nemesis: Großes Kickstarter Update

Für den Kickstarter zum Brettspiel Nemesis gibt es ein großes Update.

Awaken Realms Nemesis Kickstarter Update 1

Langauge editions production update / Voidseeders PnP / new art and pictures / 2nd wave timeline!

Hello guys!

Today we have a mega-update with a lot of stuff from all fronts. You guys had to wait a little bit more for this update, but we wanted to gather all the information and thus small delay from our usual update time.

I will write this update from first person (Marcin here, ERO of Awaken Realms), as I am currently in China overseeing our productions and I think it will be easiest like that 😉

Before we will go to further update, one VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Nemesis Pledge Manager (CLICK HERE TO GO THERE) will close 25th OF JUNE! (for all the ENG second wava / 1-wave)

This means, that by that time you should:

  • Make sure, you have completed your Pledge Manager (if not – you can check THIS UPDATE or CREATE A TICKET so our customer service can help you)
  • Make sure your shipping address is correct
  •  Add any expansions you might want, as this might be final occasion to get them

We will remind you about this via mailing and next update 😉

Having that important piece of information, lets go to the update!

So, today we will talk about:

1) Language editions production / delivery update:

a) Cards color problem (and solution)

b) Italian 1 card problem (and solution)

c) Timeline for delivery

2) Voidseeders Print and Play

3) New art (including new comic book!) 

4) Mass production miniatures samples

5) 2nd wave production and delivery timelines 

Lets go!

1) Language editions production / delivery update

I traveled to China with a specific focus on making sure Language editions production will go smoothly and to make sure the quality will be top notch. Right upon arrival and after the very first day, there was quite sad surprise waiting for me there.

a) Cards color problem (and solution) 

Upon closer inspection of all the components, it turned out that 3 out of 5 decks of cards had a problem with reverse: Black colour was sometimes a little blue, sometimes a little orange. Please see examples below:

We had a very long discussion about this topic and we came up with once conclusion – since those differences were visible by the human eye, we need to reprint all of those the cards. 

As you can imagine, it was an extremely hard decision for everyone, as literally tons of cards will go to waste – but we made it very clear, that quality of the game cannot be compromised. Here, we need to extremely positively commend our producer, who took action amazingly fast, and new cards will be reprinted by 29th of April. So even that this problem was really big, it will result with „only“ 1 week additional delay, which all things considered is quite good news.

Obviously, we are really sorry for yet another delay, but we hope that in this situation you will understand this decision. You are all waiting quite a while, so it better be of amazing quality 😉

b) Italian 1 card problem (and solution)

Another (this time very small) problem was cough in translation of one of the cards(card was lacking „and“, but it had strong gameplay context) in Italian version. Once again our partners stand up to this challenge and we will additionally produce this one card and add it to all Italian copies (so don’t be surprise, when you will have one extra card laying in the box 😉 ). Upon arrival, just change it and you are good to go 😉

(Some of you might ask, if we reprint cards, why we didn’t reprint this one – this small error was discovered too late for that 🙁 ).

c) Timeline for delivery

Ok, so all things considered, where we are in regards of deadlines?

New cards will be finished by 29th and from there assembly should take from 5-10 days (up to 10th of May). Then we will collect container and ship it by train, with expected warehouse delivery of 21-25 days. By the end of May / 5th of June we should have games in warehouse and start shipping by courier to you guys.

So all in all, we are looking at delivery from 8th up to the end of June. 

Once again we are sorry that those language editions took longer than expected. We hope that we were transparent about all the reasons behind that. Now, here are few pictures from production 😉

2) Voidseeders Print and Play

Ok, so today there is a looot of other things to share with you guys, so I will let PnP let it speak for itself and not write all the details of how this expansion works. It changes core game quite a lot and while testing both Carnomorphs and Voidseeders we are gathering tons of positive feedback, so we are quite excited to share it with you guys!

ALSO, please note:

  • Expansion is not yet final – if you have any feedback, send it over to feedback@awakenrealms.com 
  • There was some profreading done, but not the final one, so typos and mistakes might be there
  • Art is obviously not final and there are some place holders

3) New art (including new comic book!) 

Here is a little of new artbooks, including few pages from whole new Comic-book (we have put blanks, not to spoil it 😉 ).

Remember, that with Pledge Manager closing soon, this might be the last chance to get this new comic-adventure – you can add it to your ORDER HERE (and it will be added to your 2nd wave shipping)

4) Mass production miniatures samples

I will be in the plastic factory this weekend, so you will get much more pictures of mass production of second wave next update, but I managed to snatch few miniatures and make some pictures with my phone 😉 Those are mass production miniatures.

I personally love all the new aesthetic that will be added to Nemesis wit new models and art and am extremely excited to see everything on the table!

 5) 2nd wave production and delivery timelines 

That brings us to production of 2nd wave of Nemesis, I had long planning session today with our producer to know all the deadlines. Here is how the plan looks like:

– Mass production of models is already happening

– By the end of May, we need to prepare all the final files for paper production

– Production and assembly of all the expansions will take 2 months (this includes all the time needed for confirming colour samples, quality checks etc.). This will mean, all expansions should be produced by the end of July. From there it will take around 10 days to load it to containers and ship to the hubs.

We will use fastest sea / train shipping possible, so it should take from 21 – 30 days. 

In current plan, 1-wave orders and 2-wave expansions (ENGLISH) should start to ship to you guys around end of August. This is very realistic plan, but please note that there might always be some unforeseen problems on the way, that will prolong it.

All in all, 2nd wave should be delayed around 4 months from original estimate (April). This delay is mainly result of 3-months delay from Core Box (that naturally get moved also to 2nd wave) and additional month came from additional gameplay development and testing, that we gave ourselves. We are sorry for this delay, but we hope that the final quality of the game will reward that to you guys!

Ok, this is it for today, it is 00:30 here in China and I’m very tired after whole day of planning, solving problems, discussing production and quality check  – but also really excited to see things come together! I hope you guys are really excited too 😉

  • bisher scheinen Awakened Realms sehr kommunikativ zu sein, was die Produktion angeht, ich begrüße das.
