Last week I wrote about one single experience from Essen, providing a few visual titbits of what the more general feel of Spiel 2016 was for us. Today, I want to tell you about a new challenge we decided to rise up to this year: running two separate booths.
We have returned from Essen, and as always, we are tired but happy. The scale and sheer energy of Spiel is something that can surprise even someone who has been an attendee for the last five consecutive years. However, this post is not about the fair in general, but more of a single interesting experience.
Previously I talked about the design ideas and mechanisms of Shadowscape – the newest game that shares its universe with Mistfall and Heart of the Mists. Today it’s time to dive a bit into its lore, and to talk about the present and future of the game.
If you’ve been following NSKN Games or the Mistfall universe, or if you are among the backers of our most recent Kickstarter, you already know of the existence of Shadowscape, a game separate from Mistfall and Heart of the Mists, but set in their shared universe.

You may also know that some of them were essentially Ally versions of base game Heroes, using the same art. However, our backers asked us if… Read More Heart of the Mists: Your Allies stand ready
During the run of the Heart of the Mists Kickstarter campaign, everyone (backers and bystanders alike) got access to three new Heroes featured in the standalone expansion. Now it’s time to let you play with three more!
Up until Heart of the Mists, our most recent Kickstarter campaign, whenever someone asked us if we’d use a pledge manager after the funding period was over, we’d always say „no”. Now, with our first pledge manager running for the last 48 hours, I’d like to tell you what had kept us from doing this… Read More The Great Pledge Manager Plunge
