Two additional Kickstarters to make plastic miniatures for the Peace River and NuCoal core models will follow. Backers that support two or more of the individual Kickstarters will be able to have them shipped together for the basic fixed shipping cost.  

Utopia Vehicle Name Changes Announcement

We have been working with graphic designer, Greg Perkins, to improve the graphics for the upcoming Utopia Kickstarter. It was pointed out that the new Ettin and Harpy names didn't follow the planned Utopia naming convention. The N-KIDU Drones take their name from the Sumerian epic of Gilgamesh and Enkidu. With Gilgamesh being the name of the new Command Tank for the faction.

Decision overload

There is a fundamental problem in the modern world, and the game world that has a name: Decision Overload. It's particularly obvious during the holiday season when people start looking for presents. You go to a store and you look at your options. You want to buy a present but there's fifty options with so many differences. Your brain can't process all the options so you end up making your decision based on incomplete information, or just not making a decision at all. 

In game terms decision overload can occur in different parts of the game.
