TradeWorlds: The End of an Era

Well I guess I wanted to post this thread to share with all the other Game Designers about the pitfalls and problems that one may encounter AFTER a successful KS. It was about 2 Years ago, in 2017 when we launched our KS for "TradeWorlds" (at the time it was called "Tradewars — Homeworld").

We got more funds than expected with over 250% the original Funding Goal... We were all happy about the results and the accomplishment. But unfortunately that was 2 years ago...

Just storing some ideas for later... and in Portuguese

Here's the perfect place to jot down a few ideas about game design, as opposed to on my Whatsapp gaming group, I suppose. So I've decided to share something with anyone else who might be interested as well:

Today I burned some neurons a bit by starting an amalgamation of a game inspired by 3 completely different games: 1)borrowing the setting and factions of Civ Beyond Earth for PC, 2) worker placement and action selection as in Champions of Midgard, and 3) in tile placement and all players manipulating the same units as in Takenoko.

Improvements to our Crowd Sales system!

We’ve made a bunch of improvements to our Crowd Sale system so that game designers can enjoy even more success with their crowd funding campaigns.

- When you go to create your Crowd Sale we display a checklist of everything you’ll need to get started.
- We’ve added 500 and 1000 unit discount tiers. in addition to our normal 100 unit discount tier.
- Backers can now select Will Call as a shipping option if they plan to pick up their game at our factory.
- Creators can now set an initial discount between $0 and $5 (was hard coded to $5).
