We draw the campaign to a close, and we are all ready to take naps worthy of Plumplim. Thanks to every backer and follower and to anyone who talked about our game out in the world. It helped! 

Stretch Goals: What Next?

There are more Stretch Goals you've seen (and others you haven't!), and we're not abandoning them. When the BackerKit opens, funds raised there will count toward those goals! We'll have more news on the BackerKit this spring. 


As we work through writing the game, we'll post updates on how things are going, and -- we had so much fun doing the livestream discussion stream a couple weeks ago that we're going to do more throughout the year! Stay tuned here for news on when we'll be hosting them.

Fates of the Iliad UNLOCKED! New Pledge Levels, and Canvases!
over 3 years ago – Wed, Feb 27, 2019 at 10:43:55 PM

Just over 24 hours to go!

Fates of the Iliad Unlocked!

For scheduling reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with me having to leave for my Curling game in the next hour, we're unlocking Fates of the Iliad a teeny bit early! 

The expansion box will be available as a $35 add-on during the BackerKit (and will be available at retail later on), but as a thanks to our Kickstarter backers, we're including three new pledge level bundles which allow you to get the expansion for $30. These are available now on the campaign page!

Fates of the Iliad will contain some new small maps and a story book with various short tales of the many possible alternate universes that the Iliad wound up in. Strange, dark adventures await...


We've shown the Canvases in the KS video, but we wanted to share some dedicated pictures of them based on requests from people. The two canvases we have available now are for Brumigum and Terragast, and are 32"x16". The best part about these pieces of art is they can ship right after the Kickstarter ends. If you back for a canvas and want it now, just ask and we'll get it printed for you now, to hang on your wall. They're beautiful, and come on sturdy wooden frames:

We love having beautiful art on our walls and think you will too!

If you are outside the US and want a canvas, we're looking into options on how to make that happen using local print shops. We want everyone to have art!

GALAXY All-In Pledge

Some folks asked for an all-in pledge and we've got it! For $320 you can get everything, including a canvas. Do you want all the things? GET ALL THE THINGS!

Thanks to all our backers for making this possible :) We're so excited to bring you beautiful art, wonderful stories, and fun adventures with friends.

Stream Tonight (7PM EST), Last 48 Hours, and Stretch Goals!
over 3 years ago – Tue, Feb 26, 2019 at 08:55:26 PM

Livestream: 2/26 - 7PM Eastern 

Tonight at 7PM we're going to do a stream on Twitch with Chris explaining the PDF Walkthrough we posted yesterday. If you want to get a good idea of the game, or just stop in to ask questions, come to our twitch channel at twitch.tv/asmadigames tonight! 

Walkthrough PDF: http://plumplim.com/1001Walkthrough.pdf

If you miss it, the VOD will be available after the stream ends. 

Final 48 Hours + Stretch Goals

Part 22 of the Terragast Adventure is up at http://www.plumplim.com/story_act2_w5.php#part22, as we near the conclusion of both it, and the campaign! We're looking toward getting to one or more of the stretch goals we've laid out, so hopefully the last couple days are exciting and full of Plumplim-like optimism. 

Thanks again to each and every one of our backers for supporting this project, and helping us be able to write cool things. 

Gameplay PDF, Final Week, and Terragast!
over 3 years ago – Tue, Feb 26, 2019 at 12:12:52 AM

Hello Space Adventurers! We come bearing news, craft fairs, and shiny PDFs.

Gameplay Walkthrough PDF

We've shared videos of our playthroughs of the first Chapter of one of the 1001 Odysseys stories, but we thought you might like a deeper dive into the mechanics. This PDF contains a walkthrough showing how the different roles of the Odyssey bridge crew interact with the Story Book and the other game components. You can also read examples of the in-game writing!

Final Week + Fates of the Iliad

We've reached $125K of our $50K goal, which is great! But as you may have seen, we've got some pretty cool stretch goals we'd like to reach, including our next goal at $150K to begin work on the Fates of the Iliad expansion box. Jerry + Eric made a video for us, since they really want to be a part of the project!

If you'd like to help out, just tell people you think the game is awesome, or that our art is pretty, or if you're really on-board, build a replica Odyssey and run around your backyard making space-like whoosh noises.

Or just post on social media with a link to this update. (You can still make the whoosh noises)

Terragast Adventures

Our adventures on the world of Terragast continue, with the possibilities of a Craft Fair on the horizon! Join in on the story, and vote on what might happen next. (Spoiler: Probably a craft fair)

1001 Odd Questions - Twitch Tonight at 9PM EST! Terragast Adventures roll on...
over 3 years ago – Mon, Feb 11, 2019 at 04:53:47 PM

Join us tonight! We're going to have a fun time on Twitch talking about all the things in the Universe. Leading Zibzab scientists expect this to take 237.5 hours, but we'll try and keep it a little shorter. 

Our Twitch channel is twitch.tv/asmadigames and we hope you'll come along for some fun. If not, don't worry - we'll post a video of the discussion to YouTube later.

Terragast Adventures!

We've entered Week 3 of our adventure on Terragast, with a new bonus addition: Tooltips! Various words in the paragraphs will now be highlighted, allowing you to click on them for more information. As always, your votes determine what happens next, so dive in and read all about a dangerous breakfast catastrophe:
