With orders locked, our factory can start cranking out the production sample for approval. We aim to have everything done and approved by March 1st, putting us on pace for an on-time fulfillment. Let's make this happen!

I've been working tirelessly to level up the prototype and make it even more amazing.

Project EOS Rise Update!
11 months ago – Wed, Jan 18, 2023 at 07:26:33 AM

Attention Fans of Project EOS Rise!

We are thrilled to bring you an exciting update on the progress of our game development. We are happy to report that we are still on target for our timeline, and by February 1st, we will be submitting all of our design files to the manufacturer, putting us ahead of schedule.

Since the successful funding of our project, we've been hard at work to bring you the best gaming experience possible. We've set up a small business, "Random World Games," and have been working on all the necessary accounts to bring this game to life.

We've also partnered with our friends at Archona Games to design an icon pack that perfectly fits the look and theme of Project EOS Rise. In addition, we've been working diligently to overhaul all of the game assets, updating the artwork to align with our new icons, and have even commissioned a brand new illustration for the box art from the talented illustrator, Michael Storey.

We've also been working hard on setting up Backerkit and conducting fire tests on our surveys. We will be deploying these surveys soon to collect shipping information and funds.

Attention any backers from the Montreal Canada region. Local pickup will be available. Instructions on how to select this option will be provided during the survey process. A Torono Canada local pick up may also be a option. More details will follow. 

Pre-Orders NOW OPEN

And for those of you who missed the campaign, we are now offering pre-orders for the game on our website,

So, don't miss your chance to secure your own copy of Project EOS Rise!

We'll be sure to keep you updated as we hit new milestones and submit our designs to the manufacturer. Stay tuned for more exciting news!

Best, James

Quick Update Before The Holidays
12 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

FUNDED! We are absolutely thrilled!
12 months ago – Thu, Dec 15, 2022 at 05:53:50 PM

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.

Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn't have done it without you, and we can't wait to share the finished product with you.

Best regards,

James Baker,  Carl Huard,  Patricia Mackenzie
