new-unit-playtesting
Playtesting is almost complete on this section of the game.
The new unit is a hit! I mentioned in a previous post that I didn’t want any game shattering changes. The new unit and accompanying 4th tech tree really round out Mothership in a way that provides much needed variety and substance without affecting the balance.
 
I’m not quite ready to show off the unit or the new tree just yet. But you should definately look forward to the next update and next expansion for Mothership.
 
Next on my list, the untitled expansion content which will dramatically affect all gameplay types in a way I think you’ll all love. 😉

Here’s an update on the next campaign and new edition.

Next Kickstarter: As you might be aware, the awesome team at Outer Limit Games will be publishing and running the next Kickstarter for Mothership. As a result, we are running on their game timeline. They have three massive games being produced and fulfilled as we speak.

For them, they have decided to finish the majority of these projects before running another campaign so they don’t have to divert their attention away from Mothership. So, bottom line, when is the new campaign? The new target Q4 2018. That might seem like a long way off, but I am super happy about this decision.

New content: I’m so thankful for this revised timeline as it means the new content can have more time in the play-testing oven.

“What’s the new content? Tell me!!”

Alright settle down, here’s what we have planned:

  • Full single player / co-op campaign
  • New defense unit
  • Updated Tech tree with entirely new category
  • New Action cards

I want to build on what is already familiar and loved, not overhaul an already great frame work.

Don’t forget, for any new stuff, we will make sure that previous backers will be able to get their hands on it without having to buy a whole new copy. Although you can buy a whole new copy too, I’m not here to tell you what to do.

I’ve just updated the Board Layout page with a massive 18 new maps, all including Into the Vortex elements like nebula and wormholes. Five of the new maps are also on the new 24″ board!

A big thanks to Doc for sending me a whole bunch of new content! If you want to get involved making new layouts, check out the Layout Creator and send me screenshots of what you make.

The future of Mothership is looking great thanks to the team at Outer Limit Games. They will be bringing the game back to Kickstarter in Q1 2018 for a second edition and some new content to go with it.
