We know it. Long time ago you’ve been waiting for news about us and we owe you more than an explanation. For better or for worse, our policy has always been from the very beginning to be focused on the creation of the commemorative 25th anniversary edition of one of the best dungeon crawler boardgames in history.
When in November 2013 we told you that we had little time to fulfill de project, but still we could have the game ready for Christmas 2014, we really didn’t know how many problems we’d have to face. Everything started with kickstarter, which delayed the project a whole month until the relaunch of our crowdfunding.
Believe me when I tell you that we did everything we could to adjust and keep the schedules to avoid further delays. We even gave up our holidays, but there are still many pieces of the puzzle that have to fit, and we are not willing to let haste to affect quality. We want this product to be really special, and if we have to miss a promise, we prefer it to be one which you’ll forget as soon as you’ve got your game at home.
No, unfortunately we won’t make it for Christmas. The project is operating in a smooth manner and we’re really on the final sprint, but as hard as this is for us (and believe us, we are less than enthusiastic to let Christmas season go) it’s precisely now when we must walk a fine line, taking care of the last details on the production of your HeroQuest materials.
It is still not possible, however, to give any date for when everything will be ready, but instead we are going to offer you an image of the project’s current status, which will be kept up to date in our next frequent updates:
As you can see, the basic rule book and the heroic rule book are almost finished. The adventures are really advanced, and the remaining job is mainly literary. Regarding the miniatures and scenography, they are practically completed by now and we have the warehouse filled with boxes waiting for the game to be finished.
The illustrators are flating out, finishing the illustrations until they’re completely satisfied for the rules and adventure book layout to be started. The printing and of course de handling and sending are at 0%, but as we’re committed to working with companies within the national territory, once we’re started everything will move very quickly.
You won’t have to wait for too long to hear about us. In a few days we’ll start publishing some videos about the main aspects of the rules so… Resist! The waiting will be well worth it
