Hey y’all! Exa here to give you a quick update on our goings on here at BetterBuilt this past week. We’ve been meeting with local start-up assistants Science Park to work out some details of our burgeoning new enterprise, and continue seeking council from professionals like previous Senior Designer Adam Mayes with regards to our plans moving forward. We’re working on our Kickstarter campaign, which we’re aiming to open in January/February, after the holidays. So keep an eye out – and don’t worry, we’ll wave the banner to remind you! 😀
The Tabletop Simulator Workshop Version of State of Wonder will be available to the public starting this weekend!
If you have Tabletop Simulator via Steam, you’ll be able to test our prototype at any time with our team, your friends, or previous testers! We’ll post the download link and ruleset document when we announce. We can’t tell you how HYPE we are to open to a new testing public. We are hungry for your feedback like a pack of tiny screeching volerats. I don’t even know what that means!
36 New Cards await you!
We’ve expanded on every faction, so that each has two states, three wonders to choose from when constructing a deck, additional powerful cards, as well as a number of new neutral cards, for offensive, defensive, control plays, secure as well as insecure economic cards, and a new keyword, Worker.
Worker units have health and damage, just like any other units. However, this keyword enables them to be Exhausted in order to make your next building or fortification cost 1 less resource to build. This effect stacks.
Some of the most pushed cards we’ve introduced are the Drug Den, the Iron Champion, and the Dark Executioner.
The Drug Den is a card designed for the Outcasts faction (thieves, beggars and bandits).
The illicit substances provides powerful benefits to all the defenders of the State that use it. But their dependency is fatal, and should the Den ever be destroyed, so are its users..
The Iron Champion is a heroic figure among the Crusaders, and one of the three Wonders this state can create. This powerful figure brings with him reinforcements, and declares Heretics when he arrives.
The fanatical Cultists’ Dark Executioner demands a sacrifice of blood to wreak destruction on his state’s foes.
In combination with Innocent Sacrifice, the Cultist player can reap incredible power at the cost of the innocent lives.
We’re always working on fine-tuning balance among the cards and deck combinations, and with that in mind, we need still more fresh testers to refine the experience State of Wonder provides!
Our lead artist is burning the midnight oil knocking out the art to all the new cards, so we’ll soon have some goodies to show off.
Catch you in the publicly accessible Tabletop Sim version of State of Wonder this weekend!
