Hi, hope you’re having a great day. Dropping you some last-minute news about All On Board!, the VR platform where players will be able to create, share and play board games with friends, created by Blasphemous studio The Game Kitchen. As the Kickstarter campaign is entering its last 48 hours, the studio has confirmed new features thanks to community support.
The Kickstarter campaign is coming to an end on August 11. Backers can still support the project here.
The studio recently confirmed “Dungeon Master”, a mode that adds all the players need to be able to direct role-playing sessions with friends, as well as the “Stream On” feature, a tool that allows players to set up and control camera positions, so they can broadcast their sessions live.
The Game Kitchen also aims to unlock the Wargaming Toolkit with the next stretch goal in these final 48 hours. This toolkit will let players set up a campaign directly from the game, choose a wargaming ruleset, load a terrain, pick an army, and start playing immediately.
After hearing the community’s feedback, The Game Kitchen also announced Flat-Screen Guest Mode, an application for flat-screen devices that will enable friends who don't own a VR device to join your game sessions completely for free.
Furthermore, All On Board! has detailed the 12 licensed games that will be available at launch including VR versions of Edmund Mcmillen’s The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls, and Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield’s The Hunger, as well as Black Rose Wars, Rallyman GT, Sword & Sorcery, Infinity Defiance, Istanbul, Escape The Dark Castle, SteamWatchers, Hamlet, Wild Assent, The Breach.
Players can support the project starting from $20, which gives access to the platform, exclusive accessories, and a backer role on the official Discord. By contributing $40, players will be granted access to Backerpass Basic, a tier that includes three licensed board games of their choice. Backers of the Kickstarter campaign can buy the Complete tier which will grant access to 12 games for $90, and 3 extra copies of All On Board! for their friends.
All On Board! is aiming at a 2023 release for Meta Quest 2 and SteamVR-compatible headsets. Backers can still support the project to grant access to an exclusive beta this Holiday season.
You can find more information about All On Board! on the official website, and discover the latest updates on Discord, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. For more information about The Game Kitchen, you can visit the official website and follow the studio on Twitter.
