Life on Gaia, EGX, RTX and upcoming cool stuff!

Hi everyone!

I apologise for the lack of news post last week, but things have been crazy over here at Shades of Vengeance HQ!

We did RTX in London a week ago, and then the 4-day EGX (formerly EuroGamer) in Birmingham. If you’re a new fan from meeting us there, welcome! That’s kept us very busy indeed for the last couple of weeks.

Along with that, we’ve launched the Life on Gaia Kickstarter:

Leo has been working night and day to get the stories which we spent the last few months edited and the book is sounding fantastic. You don’t need to take my word for it – visit the Kickstarter page and you’ll be able to listen to several stories already as a sneak peek!

We also have a brand new card game coming at you in just a couple of weeks
Era: Survival – Colony

This game has been described as “Dead of Winter but with only cards” and “a fantastic co-operative experience” by our brave playtesters. It’s going to be for 1-4 players and I have an idea for a small expansion (which I intend to offer as a Kickstarter Expansion deck) which would also allow play with a “traitor” mechanic.

It’s fantastic fun and a real struggle for survival, so I’ll let you know when we get close to having that launch on Kickstarter!

We also, of course, are continuing work on various other projects, including Era: Lost Legend, finishing off our Lobo Comic which was funded last week, sending out Evil Overlord decks to the over 300 backers, getting the Era: The Empowered books printed, editing Era: The Chosen, proofreading Battlecruiser Alamo, sending out the last Era: The Consortium Expansions Volume 2 books and more! The team’s all very busy, but we’re running on schedule with everything, which is fantastic.

We’re also just finishing work on the next Champion of Earth expansion – Dinosoids – which will be released next year, as you may know from a previous post. I’m going to leave you today with a new enemy from that expansion: the D’yuthinkesaurus – the featured image – which has to be seen to be believed (See what I did there?!)!
