The Kickstarter campaign for Green Hell: The Board Game, based on the hit survival video game, has only started yesterday. Just after 7 hours, the developers from Galaktus Games and the fan community could celebrate reaching the 100% goal that was set at 45 000€. This guarantees that the project will be finalized! But this is not the end. There are still 17 days left till the end of the campaign and there are more stretch goals to be unlocked.
The Kickstarter campaign was originally launched on August 3. However, after the first few days, the creators made the difficult decision to cancel it, even though 65% of the goal has been reached and there was still plenty of time left. The Galaktus Games team has decided to follow the community feedback gathered during the campaign. Thanks to that they could implement many improvements and re-launch the Kickstarter on September 1st with the new, less expensive Core Game for only 62€.
“The re-launched campaign is an amalgamation of new opportunities and possibilities which opened up during the first campaign and the community feedback. All of this resulted in lower prices for our Backers, KS exclusive content, longer Early Bird period, upgraded component content (dual-layered player and camp boards), social stretch goals to engage more of the community and many more. This combination turned out to be a recipe for success – and the project was funded faster than we expected. It took us 7 hours and we are determined to grow it even more with the help of the Kickstarter backer community.” said Mateusz “Vik” Sochoń, lead designer at Galaktus Games.
More than 600 backers have managed to raise over 59 000€ and thus unlocked two more stretch goals, which include additional map cards and new mechanics added to the game. The clock is still ticking! Those who decide to support the project will also receive a free Steam copy of Green Hell by Creepy Jar, but the stock is limited, so hurry up. Backers who will support the project within the first 48 hours will also get a set of four Skull Dials for free.
