Major Funding Quest: Your Hero Your Way!
about 1 year ago – Mon, Mar 05, 2018 at 10:08:14 AM

Hello folks!  Much of our team is away at cons this week.  Adam & Paul are at SaltCon, while Nate & Manny will be at Emerald City Comic Con (booth #621)!  So if you are at either one, stop by and demo Dice Throne!

 

Some details about today's Major Funding Quest.  In Season One, we offered an expensive pledge level that allowed a select few people to help co-create heroes with our development team.  This experiment was a great success, and many of the heroes that came from this appear in Season Two!  So, we really wanted to do it again.  However, we wanted to open up the program to allow ALL our backers to exercise their creativity.  So we thought, why not run a competition?  

The winner of this competition will have an opportunity to collaborate directly with Nate, Manny and the rest of the talented Team Roxley to create the hero of their dreams.  

Creating a hero takes a lot of effort from our team.  If you win, we will collaborate with you to create conceptual art, graphic design, illustrations, as well as design the hero abilities and/or its dynamics.  You will also receive an avatar of your your hero that you can use as a badge of honor forever.  The runners up will receive a Roxley anthropomorphic avatar!

Your Hero, Your Way process!

When Your Hero Your Way FQ is unlocked,

1) We will launch a Google Form that will allow you to submit your hero idea.  We will set a strict deadline for submission and also launch an update when the form is made available.  There will be a limit of 1 entry per backer.  Because we will need to traverse many submissions, you will have to communicate why your hero is awesome with short descriptions. 

2) From these submissions, Roxley and the Dice Throne development team will pick a handful of submissions that we feel show the most promise in the following categories:   

  • fun & interesting mechanics 
  • allows for exciting illustrations and graphic design 
  • opportunity to create lore around the hero that fits into the Dice Throne universe 

3) From the finalists, the community will vote for their favorite Hero concept. 

4) We will tally votes and reveal the winner.  Shortly after the campaign ends, we will reach out to you and start the process of collaborating with us to create this new Hero.

5) later this year, we will release a Print and Play Version of the winning hero, that can be downloaded by all backers.

6) If we feel this hero really cuts the mustard, it may even be included as part of the roster for a future Season.

Will your hero take the throne?

Artificer Component Reveal! A New Challenger Funding Quest Tomorrow?
about 1 year ago – Sat, Mar 03, 2018 at 06:19:11 AM

What an amazing week we've had. So much engagement from this amazing community, much of which was centered around discovering the secret of who the next hero is.  That's right, our team has devised an Easter Egg in this campaign where you can actually have an early look at the final hero, who's funding quest will be launching tomorrow.

The first person to discover this secret was a member of our Facebook group: Tim Chatterton! NICE WORK MAN!!!  Also, good job to the many others who have also figured it out, and thank you for not spoiling it for others!  We are seriously impressed with your ability to keep a secret. :) If you want to put the pieces of the puzzle together yourself, have a look on the campaign page for hints (marked like this "#1").  If that's not your jam, no problem - we will be revealing the final hero with tomorrow's Major Funding Quest!

The Artificer

Today we are most excited to reveal the Artificer!  The Artificer is a hero for those of us who like engine building.   The Artificer starts the match slowly, but as he crafts more and more Bots, he starts a snowballing economy of damage, eventually overwhelming his opponent.  He's a character you really have to put down fast.   If you are into complex challenges with heavy decisions, this is the hero for you.

Pirate - Cursed Side Art Reveal! Current Quest: Vac Tray Lids!
about 1 year ago – Sat, Mar 03, 2018 at 06:17:49 AM

Greetings everyone! We are so thankful for the engagement of this community. It has been INSANE. We had over 10% of backers join Manny's last art stream and we hope even more of you join the next one tomorrow!

Our Amazing Support Team

There are SO many people helping this campaign that we would not be able to do this without. But to name a few of our amazing helpers that we are so thankful for: Aaron Hine, Paul Saxberg, Jonathan Herrera-Thomas, Daniel Tolczyk, Kevin Nguyen, Billy Thiex, Blake Royall, PJ Torres, Drake Finney, and so many other rockstars for answering questions and keeping the community positive! Thanks also to Brett MacDonald for all his amazing help on boardgamegeek. You guys rock!

Cursed Pirate Two-Sided Hero Board

Without further ado, check out the Pirate's two-sided hero board! At the conclusion of each of her turns, she must remove a Cursed Doubloon token from her board. If she cannot (because they are all gone), then she must flip her hero board over for the remainder of the game. It makes for a very unique experience and we can't wait for you to get your hands on her! Note: as with all S02 heroes, they are still undergoing balance changes and are subject to tweaks as we continue with this process.
