Last 24 hours + last Stretch Goal

Let's beat the last SG

There's less than 24 hours now for the campaign to end. Thank you all again for the wonderful ride - we at Games Omnivorous are beyond thrilled with this level of enthusiasm and funding; none of this would be possible without you. 

Die Drop Poster

Here's a preview of the last Stretch Goal! This is a die drop poster that can be used whenever a PC attempts a deep-dive (i know, why would they?!) and/or tries to reel something up from the ocean. The rules/instructions on how to use it will be printed on the other side of the poster. Basically, the player drops three dice atop the poster and, depending on where they land, this will determine the encounter or the thing that is pulled from the ocean. Pray that this won't be the GREAT TWENTY-TENTACLED CEPHALOPOD. 


Let's make this happen!

Another Stretch Goal down

The Floating Hexahedron

We've just knocked down another Stretch Goal! The Bottled Sea sets will now come with an additional pamphlet module: the Floating Hexahedron. This module will expand upon the location found in hex 11. And, as you've probably guessed by now, it's very much inspired by the Vincenzo Natali's Cube! Here's a sneak peek. As usual, this is a mockup and the final product may vary slightly. Writing by Andre Novoa & Adriana Oliveira, maps and layout by @Chalkdown. As we did in the case of the Undying Sands, we'd like to encourage everyone to release third-party content for the Bottled Sea under the new compatibility license. Compatibility logo for the Bottled Sea can be found HERE. Send us your creations and we'll share them around.

Next goals!

More goals shall be unlocked when we reach the 30k euros mark. This has been an incredible ride so far, thank you all so much for making this happen. 


THANKS!

5 days to go

Last Stretch Goals announced!

We are reaching the last days of the campaign, so we've decided to announce the last two Stretch Goals: 

  • 30k euros: we will give more money to creators, designers, illustrators, editors, everyone gets a raise. 
  • 35k euros: we will add a "What comes out of the Ocean?" die drop sheet that the GM can pull out whenever the players attempt fishing in the Bottled Sea. This will be fully illustrated by Kevin Cannon and we shall share some mockups soon. Stay tuned.

Once again, thanks so much for the amazing support. Here's a little animation Kevin did. Enjoy!

New Stretch Goals

Good morning!

Hope you had a great weekend. It appears that last night we knocked out the 20 thousand euro mark (!!), which means UNLOCKING new Stretch Goals. We'd like to thank everyone once again for making this possible. It's absolutely wild that we've reached this much in less than 4 days.

Soooo... onto the good stuff. What are the new Stretch Goals?

  •  IMMEDIATELY UNLOCKED: happy to announce that we will immediately add a pamphlet adventure to the Undying Sands sets! this will be a dungeon crawl expanding upon the Tombs of Ancient Royalty in hex 11. the pamphlet will be made available as an add-on via BackerKit, so that folks who have previously purchased the Undying Sands also have a chance to get it. we shall share some mockups in the next few days. 
  •  At 25,000 euros: we shall add another pamphlet adventure, but this time around to the Bottled Sea sets. this will be a weird mini-module expanding the Floating Hexahedron in hex 11. 
  •  At 30,000 euros: if we ever reach this much, we will unlock more goals. 

Let's keep this campaign going. Share the news around, if you can. 

THANK YOU!

The Tombs!

As promised, here's a sneak peek of the Tombs of Ancient Royalty pamphlet module, expanding upon the location found in hex 11 of the Undying Sands. This is a mockup render and the final product may vary slightly, but look at it! Writing by Andre Novoa & Adriana Oliveira, map by Dyson Logos (under 'release the Kraken') and layout by @Chalkdown, who we welcome to the team. We encourage the release of third-party modules like this under our new compatibility license. Compatibility logo for the Undying Sands can be found HERE. Send us your creations and we'll share them around. 



More goals close!

A new pamphlet module for the Bottled Sea sets is not that far off. We are circa 3k euros from it at the moment. Share the news around so we can make that happen. We will make a new update with mockups of it in the next few days. More soon.


THANKS!
