Today we’re serving up a freshly baked delivery of Neverrift news. We start with our first official German test print, followed by an insight into the creation of the Neverrift board game as the main course and the specialty we’ve all been waiting for as dessert: News about the launch of the Kickstarter campaign!
Yes, we know: We took our time printing a German version. But this time we had a few thousand cards printed for testing and the result is impressive: rich colors, crisp text and perfectly rounded corners will delight the collector’s heart (and the designer’s heart as well). We will therefore prepare enough decks for the next trade fairs so that all interested parties can play Neverrift without long waiting times. That brings us straight to the next topic:
We are going to be at Dreamhack in Hanover! From 15.12. – 17.12.2023 you can try out the new print of the card set right away. There are also a few minor changes to the cards: for example, our overpowered otter has had its claws trimmed:
As the last beta test of the app also provided such good feedback, we are planning further beta tests for the coming year. There is no exact schedule yet, but we will keep you up to date with beta test announcements via our social channels.
The Neverrift board game has to be epic, so much is certain. A complete list of all the details we have to pay attention to when creating the print data would go beyond the scope of this article. The design team is working simultaneously on a Neverrift-worthy box and its contents. From the instructions to the player tokens, everything has to be taken into account and created in a printer-friendly way. Sometimes we receive test products of individual parts. For example, we have received shiny boosters that are made of paper instead of foil. The process is an exciting race against the clock to have a finished prototype in hand when the Kickstarter campaign goes live.
That’s right, Neverrift is on Kickstarter! At least the page already exists and you can support us by clicking or tapping on the “Notify me when the project goes live” button. This will show that you thought Neverrift was cool before anyone else and make sure more people hear about our game! The real campaign is expected to go live at the end of March/beginning of April. At this point, a big thank you to everyone who has supported us so far! Without you and the other early tamers, neither Kickstarter nor the Neverrift board game would be possible.
May we meet again soon in the Neverrift!
