Attention, Galactic Citizens!

We have an important update for you regarding Project EOS Rise!

Firstly, let me address that their has been a delay in manufacturing. Rest assured, this is a delay that I willingly undertook to ensure an exceptional gaming experience for all of you. Our incredible partner, Hero Time Manufacturing, has wholeheartedly embraced an idea I had for the player boards. However, upon seeing the finished component, they and I felt it didn't exude the premium quality I envisioned.

With the manufacturer's guidance, I made the decision to pivot slightly and introduce a finish to the player cards. This adjustment will elevate the components to the level of premium excellence I had always dreamt of.

Consequently, the completion of manufacturing will be pushed back by two weeks, extending beyond the initially anticipated deadline. But fear not! I firmly believe in delivering the absolute best product possible, and I'm willing to stall momentarily to ensure an unparalleled gaming adventure awaits you.

Now, brace yourselves for the extraordinary news I'm about to unveil!

Over the years, numerous players have reached out to me with awe-inspiring ideas for an expansion. And guess what? The time has finally come to embark on this exciting endeavor. I'm thrilled to announce that the first expansion for Project EOS Rise, tentatively named "Aliens & Anomalies," is currently in development.

In "Aliens & Anomalies," the intrepid crew of the Starship EOS will encounter four new Alien spaceships, traversing the vast universe with endless possibilities for interaction. Let me give you a glimpse of what awaits:

  1. The merchant ship will grant the crew access to unique equipment, empowering their mission while introducing a vibrant marketplace for groundbreaking technology.
  2. Prepare yourselves for an epic showdown with the marauder—a formidable foe that demands caution and strategic planning. Conquering this adversary will bring forth extraordinary rewards.
  3. The collector ship will seek relics from across the galaxy, creating an opportunity for players to exchange these artifacts for exclusive rewards, truly enriching their gameplay.
  4. Behold the gambling den! Here, players will unlock a plethora of luck-based activities. From advantageous outcomes to the potential need for debt repayment. Remember always pay your debts or else fall victim to the wrath of the bounty hunter guild.

And that's not all! The expansion also features the intriguing Anomalies section. Prepare to face new challenges as you navigate the uncharted darkness of space. Encounter treacherous black holes, energy nebulas, and quantum time gates. These mysterious obstacles will present you with thrilling new choices as you fight to safeguard humanity.

Now, I must emphasize that the development of the Aliens & Anomalies expansion is still in its developing stage. This is where you come in! Join me on this exhilarating journey by sharing your incredible ideas for technology and space anomalies you'd love to see incorporated into the game. Your input will help shape the game mechanics and ensure an unforgettable experience for all.

Before signing off, I want to express my deepest gratitude for your understanding regarding our slight manufacturing delay. Know that I held up the shipping process to guarantee the creation of an extraordinary product.

Thank you for your unwavering support.

Farewell for now, 


Exciting news! Project EOS Rise is rapidly approaching the finish line
4 months ago – Wed, May 31, 2023 at 06:05:51 PM

Dear backers,

Exciting news! Project EOS Rise is rapidly approaching the finish line of manufacturing, and I couldn't be more thrilled to share this progress update with all of you. The collaboration between Hero Time Manufacturing and myself has been nothing short of amazing, as we've dedicated ourselves to securing the finest materials and bringing this game to life. The printing, cutting, and painting processes are already underway, and I'm delighted to offer you a glimpse of the player cards being printed through a short video. Witnessing these components come together, with the fantastic dual layers that keep everything in place, is truly a sight to behold.

Now, let's talk about the next steps: preparing for fulfillment. As manufacturing nears completion, it's time to start organizing the backer data for shipping and dispatching to fulfillment centers around the world. In the coming weeks, I may reach out to some of you for additional information to ensure a smooth delivery process. Rest assured, I will communicate through Kickstarter as well as the email address you provided in the backer survey.

Here are some fun statistics to share: 

  • Project EOS Rise will be shipped to an impressive 28 different countries. 
  • The United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Germany have emerged as the top countries with the most backer counts. 
  • Additionally, Texas stands out as the state with the highest number of backers in the US.

Before anything else, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for helping turn this dream into a reality. While there is still a journey ahead for the game as it makes its way across the world, reaching this milestone is a significant accomplishment. Your unwavering support and enthusiasm mean the world to me.

Now, let's address the timeline. If the games are shipped in June, there's a realistic chance they will reach the fulfillment centers by September. However, as experienced backers can attest, unforeseen circumstances can arise and potentially cause delays. Nevertheless, I have received honest and trustworthy guidance from Hero Time, and I maintain faith that we can navigate any obstacles that may arise.

Before we conclude, I have an important announcement.

I will be closing the pre-order store this weekend in order to provide the fulfillment centers with the addresses of all our backers. This serves as a gentle reminder that the deadline for securing a copy is fast approaching. To ensure you don't miss out, I kindly request you to place your order no later than this Friday. By doing so, you secure your place on our fulfillment list and guarantee to be among the first to receive our product.

You can find the pre-order store at

Many of you have asked about the possibility of retail availability. Currently, the answer is no. Due to the nature of our small print run of 500 units, over 400 of these copies have already been claimed by our amazing backers. Considering the additional copies needed for shipping and potential replacements, very few will be left over. If I had 200+ copies remaining, it would be a viable option. Therefore, please cherish your copies, as they will become extremely rare.

While I may have some remaining stock, I cannot guarantee their availability. I may consider selling them through a simple e-commerce platform like Facebook Marketplace or Etsy, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Now, what's next for Random World Games? As many of you know, Project EOS Rise is the first installment in a trilogy, and I've been hard at work building the basic mechanics for the second game. 

Here is a sneak peek of my testing playground on TTS

Additionally, I'm taking the time to meet backers whenever possible and playing Project EOS, which brings me immense joy. Presenting the preproduction copy and seeing your excitement has been an absolute delight.

Lastly, I'm excited to announce that I'm working on an expansion for Project EOS Rise. If any of you are interested in playtesting alongside me, please send me a message.

Once again, I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to each and every one of you for being a part of this incredible journey. I eagerly await the day when the game arrives at your doorstep, and I can't wait to hear your thoughts and experiences.

Wishing you all the best until then,
