Latest Updates from Our Project:

Quick Update Before The Holidays
6 months ago – Sat, Dec 17, 2022 at 03:08:50 PM

I hope this message finds you well and that you're as excited as I am about the launch of 'Project EOS Rise'. We've been working hard to bring this project to life, and I'm thrilled to say that we've now completed the funding stage and are ready to move on to the best part - actually making the game!

Timeline!  Here is a look at the most conservative timeline I can imagine based on the information I have today. My most significant win in advancing this timeline is getting the manufacturing setup process done before the Chinese New Year. This will move up all the production timelines by a month. But I want to be realistic, so I'll keep it as is. 

Launch our Pledge Manager! 

In January, we'll be launching our pledge manager, which will allow anyone who missed the Kickstarter campaign to secure their own copy of 'Project EOS Rise' or the 'Away Missions' expansion. If you already pledged on Kickstarter, you don't need to do anything - your order will be taken care of automatically.

For those of you who are new to crowdfunding, a pledge manager is a platform that helps us manage and fulfill orders. We'll be using BackerKit, which allows backers to see their orders, track fulfillment, and more. If you receive communication from me through BackerKit, don't be alarmed - it's just part of the process.


As we move forward with development, I'll be using the Board Game Geek forums as a way to keep in touch with everyone and provide updates on what we're working on. If you'd like to stay up to date on the latest news and see behind-the-scenes glimpses of the development process, be sure to follow the link below:

I'll reserve Kickstarter updates for only major milestone announcements. 

Language Editions

I know that many of you are interested in language editions of 'Project EOS Rise', and while we currently only have an English version available, I'm committed to exploring localization options if/when we have a successful market launch. Later on in the development process, I'll be conducting a poll to see what languages are most in demand, so we can cater to that market as needed.

Happy Holidays! 

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has supported 'Project EOS Rise' so far. Your enthusiasm and support mean the world to me, and I'm excited to embark on this adventure with you all. Have a happy holiday season, and I'll be in touch again soon with more updates.

Best regards, James

We are absolutely thrilled and humbled by the overwhelming support we received for Project EOS Rise. Your generosity and enthusiasm have allowed us to fully fund our game, and we are deeply grateful for each and every one of you who contributed to our success.

We cannot thank you enough for your kind words, encouragement, and social outreach. Your belief in our project has been truly inspiring, and we are excited to turn our dream into a reality.

In the coming weeks and months, we will be working hard to bring the game to life. I will be;

  • Setting up a pledge manager and the game will soon be available for sale at its full retail value, along with the expansion!
  • We're partnering with Milan Tasevski, the talented lead Graphic Designer of the hit game PEST, to bring a fresh new look to our game's iconography.
  • It's time to kickstart our company and get to work bringing our game to life. Stay tuned for updates!

Our goal is to create a company that is focused on making medium-weight games that provide unique, immersive worlds to play in. We believe in providing fair value for our products and excellent customer service, and we are committed to making Project EOS Rise the best game it can be.

EXCITING NEWS! Free Expansion Now Included!
6 months ago – Sat, Nov 26, 2022 at 02:40:12 AM


We are currently only ten days into our campaign and have hit 50% of our funding. I knew having, top card stock, reinforced box, eco-friendly coatings, and beautiful wooden components for a first-time creator was going to be a challenge. But, I wanted to provide you with the best quality game to match the incredible gameplay experience. It's been a fantastic campaign, and listening to your stories about playing Project EOS Rise has filled me with joy. I'm with you right up until we fund. 

So, Let's Celebrate With This BIG News!

All Kickstarter additions of Project EOS Rise will now come with a FREE mini-expansion!

The away missions will add a new room to the Starship EOS. Once unlocked the team can embark on away missions as a new action during the crew action phase.  Away missions will bring new thrilling challenges and unique rewards only found in the expansion.  

The missions will feature a dice placement mini-game. Characters will roll their dice count and, from left to right, try to match the icons of the away mission card. Each dice placed in the sequence will unlock more rewards. But be warned! Away missions can stress out a crew member leaving them vulnerable during the rest of the game round.  Additionally, up to one other crew member can participate in the mission, helping you achieve more rewards. 

Unlocking the Shuttle room has one more added gameplay benefit. The Card has five additional hull strengths that the engeener can use to mitigate incoming damage. 

What's inside the expansion box

A Custom Tuckbox - Keep your expansion cards safely tucked away in their custom tuckbox. 

1 Double-sided Rules Card - The mini expansions' easy-to-follow rules are printed on a standard playing card that fits neatly in the tuck box. 

1 Shuttle Room Card - Send your team on an away mission by unlocking the Shuttle room during your adventure. Additionally, when opened, the Room comes with hull strength, allowing the EOS to absorb more damage. 

15 Away Missions - Embark on fifteen exciting away missions to gain all new rewards not found in the core game. Replenish Power cubes, moving asteroids, and increasing the funding track are just some of the new rewards gained through away missions. 

 There has never been a better reason to back Project EOS Rise! The mini-expansion will be for sale on our E-COM after the Kickstarter campaign. But this is your chance to secure your copy for free by backing the project. 

Join me this weekend as I host a live stream event debuting the new expansion. Join our Facebook group to learn more -->

Final thoughts

I'm so happy with our success. Our daily trend still has us on a course to fund. So, Thank you to all the current and future backers for making Project EOS Rise such a positive experiance. 

Until next time! 

James Baker
