Update on DeepWars Progress

It has been a while between updates but there have been many things going on behind the scenes as we get ready to launch DeepWars. The most important milestone was the completion of the rulebook, which has now been uploaded the Wargames Vault, serving the dual purpose of being ready for sale right now and also serving as the printer. Printed proofs are on the way right now, so in a couple more days we will should be ready to start shipping out books. Kickstarter bundles are waiting for the books, so those can go out now also. We are working on getting the retail versions of the books (BW interior) out to distributors, along with the full set of miniatures.

The last few figures are being completed now, including all of the commanders, so they will be ready for casting in one to two weeks. Shipping of Kickstarter rewards may be staggered, with the main items available now shipping first, then the rest later int he month. The goal is still to be shipping everything out before November, but things might be tight. Game Master level and above will likely ship in November.

 

Boxed starter sets will include an option for a free download of the PDF rulebook, and cards for the miniatures. Some of the cards designs are shown below. The Fortune Hunters, Ancients of Atalán and Scaly Horde starter boxes will be ready in a few days as the last components arrive from printing. The Dark Mariners are delayed due to a shipping issue with two of the miniatures, but we should solve this problem soon.

We are in the process of updating the main AntiMatter Games website, so it will serve as the new spot for all news updates and will have a new store with all of the current products, including the art prints and maps. The store will have a set of special pre-order bundle deals similar to pledges from before, running up to the launch date for those who have not had a chance to get into the game. The main store will link to Flash-based websites for further exploration but the main site is designed for mobile devices and non-Flash systems.

 

Lastly, we are gearing up for the start of the ShadowSea Kickstarter, the land-based skirmish adventure game that spawned DeepWars, getting new miniature starter sets and and updated rulebook. We hope to start with three forces initially, the Fortune Hunters, Dark Mariners and Axibalán Empire, then moving to the other three forces as funds permit. Some concepts are shown below.
