Rivet Wars: Reloaded, coming to Kickstarter in September

Rivet Wars: Reloaded

Steamforged Game has announced the launch of Rivet Wars: Reloaded! Rivet Wars: Reloaded will be launching on Kickstarter on Tuesday, September 6th and will include a new faction, new ways to play, exciting new artwork, an updated game engine, and beautifully refined miniatures.

After announcing the acquisition of the Rivet Wars IP in July, Steamforged Games gave eager fans a sneak peek of the game at Gencon 2022, which was incredibly received by old and new fans alike.

Rivet Wars is a Dieselpunk inspired, tactical miniatures game where each player takes on the role of the commander of a Rivet army representing one of the opposing factions. Set in the world of Rivet, the game features unique technology such as diesel powered mechs, unicycled vehicles, and armour plated cavalry.

Strategic decision making is key to success, whilst giving the player the choice of new options each turn means that players can adjust their play and tactics by reacting to what is unfolding during the game. It’s an incredibly fun, fast and frantic experience. 

Launched in 2014 by video game legend Ted Terranova, Rivet Wars has been out of print for some time and now has an exciting future at Steamforged Games.

Take Your Dice to the Next Level with the Levitate Dice Kickstarter

Conflict Games is following up their string of wildly successful Card Kickstarters with a new campaign, this time bringing a new pop culture innovation to market with Levitating Dice. The Levitate Dice Kickstarter campaign gives players a unique way to spice up their gaming tables with a novel piece of magical décor.

Initially, there are four dice designs to choose from: Abyssinian Brass (brushed brass dice with black ink), The War Blade (dark grey dice with white ink), Quintessential Red (reflective red dice with white ink), and Rainbow Touched (pearlescent dice with gold inking).Conflict Games hopes the Levitate Dice will become a must-have for pop-culture collectors and tabletop role-players worldwide. They are a novel addition to TTRPG and dice collecting and add a little panache and the X factor to the room and game night.

To make these dice happen, Conflict Games has initiated a Kickstarter drive. The “Levitate Dice Kickstarter” runs from March 21 to April 21 for an intended release in the early fourth quarter of 2022. The project will be available worldwide. Funding gathered through Kickstarter will go toward additional design, engineering, manufacturing, and distribution of the dice. This is Conflict Games 5th Kickstarter. The previous four raised in excess of $250,000.
