Heyah Space Miners!
Howdee doodee? I hope you're especially well in this lovely summer time. Lifeform development continues as quickly as a Cocoon cycle of our favourite intergalactic space beast. Our monster of a game continues to grow and we're bringing in some extra pairs of hands to help us round out and finish off the graphics on all the extra content you guys unlocked for this mahoosive beauty of a game.
Design Chief Mark Chaplin has given final sign off on the rules following all of the excellent feedback we've had from you guys, so now we're having another fresh professional editor take yet another look over them in exhaustive detail to make sure we haven't missed anything.
The pledge manager has launched and is now live! If you haven't already you should receive your email invites to fill in your BackerKit surveys very soon.

As always we had a fantastic weekend in Birmingham at UK Games Expo. The whole weekend was a jam packed extravaganza of meeting existing backers, fellow designers, reviewers, contacts and new game enthusiasts. We were there demoing Gloom of Kilforth, 1066, Tears to Many Mothers and joined by very special guest Mark Chaplin who successfully demoed Lifeform including to the Shut Up & Sit Down guys! We were also invited to be in the audience for a very interesting panel discussion hosted by GamesQuest on board game design and production. By the end of the weekend we limped home on our bruised and burning feet and tried to repair our vocal chords with throat lozenges. We can't wait until we do it all again next year! We've uploaded some more photos of the weekend to the Gallery.
The Kickstarter campaign for Lifeform got off to an amazing start, fully funding in just under 8 hours and closing at 451% funded and with 1,679 backers. Don't worry if you missed out on the Kickstarter however as you will still have a chance to stow away on the escape shuttle by jumping in on the pledge manager which we will be opening soon,. Watch this space for more details...
The campaign for the second print run of Gloom of Kilforth plus expansions fully funded in under 4 hours and eventually raised a staggering 769% of its funding goal on Kickstarter! It's not too late to pledge however as orders are still being taken on BackerKit.
We were delighted to be voted at number 6 in Tabletop Gaming Magazine's Game of the Year 2017! Dan Jolin from TTGM stated "...there’s something wrong with you if you don’t get a tingle of excitement every time you waggle your fingers around in Hall’s lucky-dip-style, drawstring loot bag.
