Dreadball Extreme, arrasando en Kickstarter.

Debo reconocer que Dreadball, no esta en mi ludoteca, más por una cuestion estética que de mecánica. Soy gran seguidor de BloodBowl y me llama mucho la atención este juego, viendo sobretodo como se retrasa año tras año, una re-edición del BB, pero no termina de gustarme la ambientación galáctica. DreadBall Extreme es la nueva versión del juego, que esta arrasando en kickstarter y que nos ofrece nuevos equipos y mejoras. Me encanta el guiño al jugador de SpeedBall 2, juego que me encanto en su momento, en mi viejo Atari St.

More violence, intimidating sponsors and all-new teams, Xtreme is a whole new way of playing Dreadball - The Futuristic Sports Game!

Current Stretch Goal: $350,000 - Mechanites DreadBall Team!

DreadBall Xtreme is the underground sports game of the future and the follow-up to the hit board game DreadBall – The Futuristic Sports Game.
To get all of the great game experience, including everything you need to play plus a great selection of stretch goals, bonus extras and goodies, we recommend a pledge of Rampage!

In DreadBall Xtreme, two teams battle it out on the pitch to outscore each other, with all new twists:
- No Referee = More Violence for Everyone: with no one to stop the bloodshed, anything goes! Sucker punches and stomps are the norm, and the introduction of explosive collars, deadly traps and bloodsucking aliens only increase the level of violence.
- Customize your Battlefield: games are organized in prisons and warehouses at a moment’s notice, using industrial scenery to shake things up - everywhere from the scoring zone to the ball launch location can change!
- Play as Enigmatic Sponsors: the powerful organizers behind the game, Sponsors dictate your play-style and are experts in intimidation, blackmail and illegal gambling. Best of all, Sponsors allow you to build entirely unique teams out of any player combination you like!

Are you ready for an all-new ball game?
Please note that products are fully compatible with original DreadBall.

Risks and challengesLearn about accountability on Kickstarter

Delivering a Kickstarter is the hardest part of the project. We’ve successfully delivered three Kickstarters, as well as more than half of our Deadzone Kickstarter, with the remainder shipping as planned in June.
Furthermore, our fifth Kickstarter - Mars Attacks The Miniatures Game - is developing very well and will begin shipping on schedule in Q3 later this year. Check out the Kickstarter page for all of the latest updates.
Mantic has experience in sculpting, tooling and delivering Kickstarters – something that can be very difficult to get right. Models being too big to fit on tools and overspending is a challenge, but with careful management we’ve experience in handling that.
The other challenge is delays from the manufacturer – something that has meant we’ve gone down to the wire on a number of occasions with sculpting deadlines and delivery to our warehouse. We’ve deliberately added a couple of extra months to our shipping date to cater for this, meaning we can work on checking the quality of everything that comes through.
