The Flatworks team is busy preparing for the upcoming Kickstarter scheduled for May 23rd.
Flatworks attended CincyCon 2017 in early March and tested a starter version of the game. The starter version will contain less guild cards, introduce players to the game and teach the game's mechanics in about one hour. The full game version is the same game as many of our playtesters played over the past year and a half.
We still have a few icons and other illustrations left to go, but we are 95% complete. We are working with Lisa and Greg Johnson of Luff Games to polish up our Player turn and Game Reference cards. Leonardo Borazio, who did the art our box cover and player characters, is creating the art for our game board stretch goal.
We've posted more game art on the main game website, so go visit if you haven't been there in the past few weeks.
We have narrowed the list down to three manufacturers. We'd be sending out quotes again next week to finalize the box size and other component pricing. Next, is to reach out to shipping and fulfillment companies to line up how the games will be delivered.
Videos of the game components, game setup and how to play will be made over the next three weeks and posted on YouTube and on our website.
We reached out to reviewers and will be sending the game out in April. We have lined up FatherGeek, UndeadViking, ForgedByGeeks and a few others.
Origins (June 2017)
Flatworks will be running 16 events for Dwarven Smithy at the Origins Game Fair in June. This will be the last weekend of the Kickstarter too. Hopefully the game will be funded and we have completed all our stretch goals, but if it's needed, we'll be there to push the game over the finish line.
Gen Con (Aug 2017)
Flatworks will be Gen Con running events for Dwarven Smithy. We are still working out the event schedule as we will also be in the First Exposure Playtest Hall testing other games.
