We have a couple of fantastic graphic designers working on the game. Mr. John Eiberger is working on the revamped game board; here’s a look at his design for the Hibernation Room!
We’ve also introduced the Dr. Viktor Four-Day Challenge:
Dr. Viktor, the scientist who developed the Specimen, was originally brought on board the T.C.S. Brown in suspended animation. He was killed when the meteor hit the ship at the beginning of the game. But we have an expansion card set planned that allows Dr. Viktor to survive and become part of the crew. This expansion was originally slated to be an unlockable/stretch goal, but we’re going to do something special: if we can get to $10,000 in pledges by Thursday, Sept. 27 at 11:59 CST, we’ll include the Dr. Viktor expansion as part of the game!
Doctor Viktor has survived the meteor impact. But will he help the crew hunt down the Specimen? Or will he be reluctant to destroy his own horrific creation? This expansion explores these questions. Includes: Dr. Viktor Character Card and Playing Piece, 10 New Strategy Cards, and rules addendum.
Well, we’ve gone and done it – the Kickstarter campaign for Specimen went live on September 5. We have until October 9 to raise $30,000 so we can finish up the graphics and print the game. To give you a deeper look into the world of the game, we’ll be adding more videos to the page soon. We raised over a thousand dollars on our first day, so needless to say we’re pretty excited about things so far. Go on over to the Kickstarter page and check it out – it’s pretty cool!
In his new blog post, our resident game designer Steve Baldwin tells the story of inviting two gamers over to playtest “Specimen” straight out of the box, with just the manual and no help from the game designer. Read all about it!
