I’ve been taking a hard look at the components in Nightlancer and thinking about which ones I might be able to remove, without having a negative effect on the gameplay experience.
This would have two advantages.
- It would make the game cheaper, so it would be less at stake for people who are thinking about supporting Nightlancer when I relaunch on Kickstarter.
- It would allow me to reduce the funding target for the Kickstarter campaign itself, making the goal easier to reach.
In the Kickstarter campaign the funding target was £17,500, with £45 as the cost (including P&P) to buy the game itself.
I’m confident I can remove and replace some components without worsening the gameplay. This involves taking out 45 playing cards, and replacing the game board with a set of mats. This would result in the cost reducing to no more than £40 with a funding target of no more than £15000.
There are some more components that I could remove, potentially removing the cost to only £35 with a funding target of £12000. I’m not as confident that this will have no adverse effect on the game, so I will putting this to test to explore whether it’s a viable change.
There is also the possibility of a Print On Demand version of Nightlancer – but obviously this would not come cheap! Depending on the amount of components included I could offer this for between £50 and £70. To offset this, I would offer a FREE copy of the final production version of the game when it is funded successfully!
