Forsaken Isles & Doomed Run – July Update

posted in: blog | 0

This post originally appeared on the Forsaken Isles and Doomed Run Kickstarter page and is reposted here so that fans can keep up to date with Rock Manor Games projects. Late Pledges are still available for this project!

92% of you have finished the Pledge Manager, so we’re using that data to finalize our print run numbers.  If you’re one of the 8% we’re still waiting on, be sure to fill out the survey ASAP.  Once our print run numbers are fixed, the pledge manager will be capped at those production quantities.

Game Progress

All the edits are back from Doomed Run and all the files have been completed on our end. This past week,  we’ve reached out to a few different factories and are finalizing quotes and moving to get preproduction copies made. Getting those first PPCs is always an exciting thing to share with backers so we hope to have an unboxing video for you when that happens.

Estimated (Rough) Timeline

Our estimated timeline hasn’t changed since last month.  We’re moving ahead and are on schedule.  As always, please understand that delays happen and this is just a rough estimate.  Late Pledges will be open through Preproduction.  Changes of Address will be allowed up until Ocean Freight.  Exact cut off and lock dates will be announced in a future update.

  • July – August 2023: Preproduction with Factory
  • September – October 2023: Production Window
  • November – December 2023: Freight Window
  • January – February 2024: Fulfillment Window

GenCon is on the Horizon

We are just a few weeks away to the biggest board game convention in the United States! Todd and I will both be heading to GenCon where we will be demoing games, playtesting new games, and meeting with press.  We actually are heading to a local con here in Harrisburg, PA to get prepped for GenCon.  If you’re heading to Indianapolis, be sure to stop by and say hi at Booth 1819. 

Final Summer Streams

I’ll be hopping online for two final live streams this summer.  This Friday at 3pm EST I plan on showing off our untitled Heist game and playing through a few turns since I’m working on getting it ready to playtest/demo at GenCon.

Then on July 28th at 12pm EST before I head off to GenCon, I plan on talking about Rock Manor Games heading to GenCon and what  games/etc I’m looking out for there.

As always, if you can make one of the live videos and want to chat, I appreciate you stopping by. Everyone is welcome and I’m not strict about staying on subject.  If you can’t make it, feel free to post any questions you have in our Discord and I’ll answer them during the stream.  The videos will be up on demand on our youtube channel as well so you can catch up at your leisure.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  I can’t believe it’s winding down already.
