Project Update: Stretch goals!

Hi all,

Daybreak is already bursting at the seams with content, but we have some even more ambitious stretch goals for the project!ย 

And over the weekend, we already blew by our first goal ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Check it out:

๐Ÿชฉ Free web edition of Daybreak (5,000 backers)


The team has been testing Daybreak remotely for most of its development cycle. We want to share it with all of youโ€”but as a a polished final version with the full art and components.ย 

All backers will have access once the game has shipped!

This will probably be hosted on the site Tabletopia, but still TBD.

๐ŸŒŠ Screenprinted tokens (6,000 backers)

We really want to add nice printed details to the wooden ocean and tree tokens, but it has always been a โ€œnice to haveโ€ since weโ€™re already pushing the production budget of the game to the max.ย 

Weโ€™re still creating the final versions of these tokens, but will be sharing out visual updates for those and other components after the campaign has wrapped.ย 

๐Ÿ›Ÿ 2x crisis cards (7,000 backers)

We want to DOUBLE the size of the tarot-sized challenge card deck, from 24 cards to 48. This will give each game even more of a unique puzzle to solve.ย 

And of course, we have our incredible illustrator Holly Warburton lined up to do more hauntingly beautiful art for all of them!

๐Ÿ’ช Challenge card deck! (8,000 backers)

Hereโ€™s the big one that weโ€™re REALLY excited aboutโ€ฆ

Weโ€™ve created a deck of 42 (!) cards that let you scale, adapt, and customize Daybreak depending on what kind of thematic or difficulty experience you'd like.

Want to try a game where the world runs low on materials for create solar panels? Or a world where victory means staying under 1.5ยฐC warming?ย 

There are all sorts of fascinating, challenging scenarios like these that you can mix and match. For example, hereโ€™s a raw screenshot of our database of card effects:

A few examples of challenge cards

Those are all our stretch goals! I think they're going to be really achievable given the response to the campaign so far.

To get there, could you share the page to help spread the word?ย 

If so, here's the link:

Sharing anywhere would be helpful, whether it's Facebook, Twitter, or even just telling a friend who would be interested in the project. Whatever makes sense for you!

Thanks so much,

Goal: 5,000 backers reached! โ€” We did it! This project reached this goal!
