Latest Updates from Our Project:

25 Nov - A brief Status Update
3 days ago – Sat, Nov 26, 2022 at 09:23:23 PM

TL;DR: Nothing new to report right now. We are still working on getting updated samples of the wash from the factory and plan to share them as soon as they get to us.

Hi, everyone!

Just a quick touch base to let you know how things are going. Nothing new to report this week. 3d files are still going back and forth. The wash samples are being worked on/updated so we can show them to you.

We plan to lock down BackerKit surveys on Wednesday, Nov 30th however the lack of our wash samples MAY adjust this plan again. If it DOESN'T, we will charge cards on Thursday, Dec 1st. Please update/mark your calendars accordingly!

We'll be back soon. Have a great weekend!

Keep rollin' sixes!

11 Nov - A brief Status Update
18 days ago – Sat, Nov 12, 2022 at 12:28:38 AM

TL;DR: Digital Proofs are in review for 3D, Print & Tray components

Hi, everyone!

Just a quick touch base to let you know how things are going.

We have received several digital proofs for 3D, print, and tray components.
The tray looks very promising, but we need the physical proof before revealing it. We are also quite excited about the prototype we got. This is currently in review with the team to look for anything we need to fix, update, or adjust.
The wash samples also came through, and we need to work with the manufacturer more to get the perfect results before finalizing. This work is already in progress.

We plan to lock down BackerKit surveys on Wednesday, Nov 30th, and charge cards on Thursday, Dec 1st. Please update/mark your calendars accordingly!

We'll be back in a couple of weeks with our next status update. Have a great weekend!

Keep rollin' sixes!

4 Nov - Extending Pledge Manager Close Date
25 days ago – Sat, Nov 05, 2022 at 12:26:08 AM

TL;DR: A quick update to let you know we have pushed the pledge manager close date to the end of the month.

We had expected to have the wash samples by now to share with you to help you decide if you wanted to add this to your pledge. Since we do not, we’ve decided to push back the close date on Backerkit to allow more time for you to make an informed decision about adding the wash to your copy of Skyrise.

We plan to lock down BackerKit surveys on Thursday, Nov 30th, and charge cards on Friday, Dec 1st. Please update/mark your calendars accordingly!

We'll be back next week with our regularly scheduled status update. Have a great weekend! 

Keep rollin' sixes!

28 Oct - The work continues - General Progress Update!
about 1 month ago – Sat, Oct 29, 2022 at 04:57:11 AM

TL;DR: Work continues! Just an update to keep you apprised of where we are at.

Hi, everyone! 

Just a quick touch base to let you know how things are going. 

Printed Components

  • Digital proofs have been approved for (Collector & Essentials cards, punchboards, Essentials box & insert)
  • These files will now be moving to physical proofing

3D Components

  • Every building, blimp, and island sculps have been iterated on at least once.
  • Many have been approved for production.
  • Many are very far along in the process.

REMINDER: We plan to lock down BackerKit surveys on Tuesday, Nov 8th, and charge cards on Thursday, Nov 10th. Please mark your calendars accordingly!

Nothing further to report right now. We will see you again in two weeks. Have a fun and safe Halloween!

Keep rollin' sixes!

14 Oct. - We're Back from SPIEL with the latest production update!
about 1 month ago – Sat, Oct 15, 2022 at 10:26:26 PM

TL;DR: Things are moving along! Production Update + Photos from SPIEL!

The team is back from a great SPIEL! Thanks to those of you who were at the show and came by to say hello. :D We have some photos to share but first, let's get an update on production:

All Print Components

Our manufacturer is currently working on proofs of these components for us. We have spent some time working on the gold foil applications for the cards and game box, and we can't wait to show this once we receive a sample. We think they will look very, very nice.

Rulebook

We are organizing and implementing the great feedback we received to improve our rulebook.

Insert Design

The 3D design is with our manufacturer. They are currently working towards proofs for our review.

3D Components

We have now received most of the sculpts back from the manufacturer, modified in a way they can produce. We have approved about 50% of them and are working back and forth to perfect the remainder to our liking.

Wash

Unfortunately, creating a wash sample is not simple. To do so, we must:

  • Approve all 3D files
  • Receive and approve 3D prints of those files (we need to ensure every design can physically stand upside down!)
  • The manufacturer must create a physical mold of those files (which is a long process)
  • The manufacturer must provide several samples of the wash effect
  • We must work back and forth with the manufacturer until we achieve a wash result we are happy to move forward with (this result must be tweaked for each of the four building colors we are offering)

We understand that backers want to see a wash before investing in it. And so, we are currently looking into pushing forward one of our building color designs to completion to expedite this process for that one colour so that we can hopefully at least provide an accurate comparison for you. We will let you know in the next update what the status of this idea is.

TEAM ROXLEY & DICE THRONE @ SPIEL!

Ok, not impressed with our blurry team photo? It's ok. Luckily, BoardgameShot Mateusz Zajda was on site to help us out. 

RAD! You can see our awesome partner for manufacturing Skyrise in the background. Hi, Eastar!
I assume there is a deep discussion about which hero matchups are the best going on...
Utter destruction incoming. Can you feel it?
Do you have a moment to hear about Dice Throne? Hmmm, Why yes, I think I do, good sir.
NO NO! Just listen to me - go for the ULTIMATE!
See this right here? This is where things get wild. RAID!

Where is Skyrise? Well, our prototype is very delicate, so we didn't bring it with us, but you know we will have the final there with us next year!

REMINDER: We plan to lock down BackerKit surveys on Tuesday, Nov 8th, and charge cards on Thursday, Nov 10th. Please mark your calendars accordingly!

Keep rollin' sixes!
