They are indeed bringing Mage Knight back!
« on: July 09, 2012, 06:38:31 PM »
After having seen the Kickstarter for raising funds for a new MK digital and physical game, and after many people posted their opinions and many (however not enough by a long shot - as in only $16,500 pledged nowhere near the $700,000 goal) pledged money.  This afternoon they closed the Kickstarter prematurely and stated that they are now convinced that there is a player base and that they are definitely bringing MK back!!

I'm not entirely sure I believe that until I see some actual 'promo' figures on real bases and not just computer drawings. Given the ease of which you can slap a digital figure together, this has all just been a lot of free publicity / market research for them.

That said, if they use the new HC base design I have seen, I'd be real happy to see it back. Just make sure I have some dungeons version I can play and the Ibson Dungeons site will be back up to weekly updates!  8)

Cheers!

Yes, the funding was cancelled after they took a survey and determined that they were definitely having interest shown in the physical game. So, if you look back at the Kickstarter update #4 for that particular Kickstarter you will see that they closed it with a promise of brining the physical game back.

That promise is the reason for my doubt... show me something real and then we can talk.

They should team up with Blizzard and do Mage Knight Dungeons: Diablo!

Lol! MKRealms is all abuzz with the news but I'm still waiting for something more concrete. Despite what they seem to want over there, I'm hoping they go with the new style Heroclix bases (very easy to turn, pop apart and modify) and even 'HC style' rules (i,e, grid based). It would seem then to be very dungeons friendly, even if they were outside maps. Heck, its what I have been making rules for for ages.

Anyhow, I am not getting excited until we see some physical models and get some more info... and this form the fellow was willing to try and buy the product line when it was falling off the face of the earth.

Cheers!

I just hope that the new game will be compatible with all older figures and that there will be new mage spawn and heroes.

Cheers!
