With just over a week remaining on the Kickstarter Dark Souls board game crowd funding campaign, the team behind the tabletop board game which takes its inspiration from the series of Dark Souls video games has now passed £2.3 million in funding after only requiring £70,000 to take the game into production.
After just one week the campaign had already raised over £1 million allowing backers to benefit from a range of stretch goal bonuses which are still available to bag if you haven’t yet pledged to receive a copy of the game when it starts shipping during April 2017.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the game’s mechanics and gameplay as well as all the mini figures you are entitled to get both in the standard set and via the Kickstarter stretch goals which have been met over the duration of the campaign.
Dark Souls – The Board Game is a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game for 1-4 players set in the Dark Souls universe. Players choose from a number of core character classes and explore dangerous locations full of monsters, treasures, and deadly boss fights.Designed specifically for the Dark Souls universe and introducing a number of innovative gameplay mechanics, with world-class miniatures faithful to the rich universe, this game delivers an experience that captures the very essence of the original video games.
We don’t like complicated Kickstarters, so we’ve made this one as simple as possible. There is just one pledge level for gamers, and one pledge for retail stores.As the campaign progresses, some stretch goals will unlock an ‘Add-On’ which is an optional item to purchase; to buy one of these, simply increase your pledge amount. This also drives the campaign total up thereby unlocking even more stuff!
The best bit is that every ‘non Add-On’ stretch goal that gets unlocked during the campaign will be included in your pledge! So the more people that support the project, the more goals get unlocked, the more value we can squeeze in, and the bigger the box we’re going to need!
