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.

Gen Con 2022: Steamforged shows off Dark Souls, new Rivet Wars, and Adventures & Academia: First Class miniatures

Steamforged Games has announced some exclusive exhibits for their appearance at the immensely popular tabletop convention, Gen Con, taking place 4-7 August in Indianapolis. Attendees can visit their booth #2221 to enjoy, amongst other things, world premieres of a host of never-before-seen miniatures and material.

First to be displayed are miniatures from the new Dark Souls: The Board Game release, Tomb of the Giants, due to be released later this year. These stunning models include skeleton soldiers, necromancers, an imposing skeletal beast and a huge new boss, the iconic Gravelord Nito.

This is the first Dark Souls: The Board Game content released since 2017, and is the first of a series of new core sets, which include a new campaign system and an updated rulebook, designed to be backward compatible and with community involvement.

Attendees will also get an exclusive look at the new faction for the recently acquired Rivet Wars franchise. More information about the exciting future of the game, including new ways to play, will be revealed in due course.

Finally, Steamforged are excited to give an exclusive world-first preview of the upcoming miniatures for Adventures & Academia: First Class. After securing the support of 7,611 backers on Kickstarter, this hotly-anticipated range of miniatures is currently in production. This exhibit is a chance for backers to whet their appetite for roleplaying fun in advance of the campaign’s delivery, slated for early 2023.

As well as displaying minis, they’re running demos of various games every day at Gen Con, giving visitors a chance to get hands on with Steamforged’s awesome tabletop experiences.
