Steamforge Games have completed another successful Kickstarter campaign with Dark Souls – The Board Game. These guys are no noobs when it comes to Kickstarter, having used the platform to kick off their sportsball tabletop game Guild Ball (did you see what I did there?). Guild Ball is currently my favourite skirmish style tabletop game, having a near flawless rule set, AMAZING models, and a community that feels super inclusive and relaxed.
But I digress. Slightly. See, the reason I felt so comfortable backing Dark Souls – The Board Game campaign is based solely (I’m on fire today) on the fact that Steamforge was making it. Dark Souls is great, and we all know how much I love minis. But these things combined with Steamforge making some of the most beautiful minis I’ve ever had the pleasure of painting, made this investment a no-brainer.
The campaign launched on the 19th of April this year, and it’s goal was reached within the first 3 minutes. INSANITY. Not only that, but it ended with AUD 7, 471, 029 of funding. In celebration, they decided to throw in the last stretch goal of a scenario-driven campaign mode, which all backers will now get.
Honestly, I’m just super excited to paint those minis. There are so many of them, and I’m probably going to be painting for a year solid to get them all finished. Which I’m totally cool with.
The game will be released April next year, giving you plenty of time to get painting supplies together. If you didn’t back it but still really want it, you can do a late pledge here: http://steamforged.com/late-pledge
Who else backed it? Are you excited? We should totally have a game session.
