Can I add 1066, Tears to Many Mothers, or Gloom of Kilforth and/or its expansions as an add-on?

Yes, you will be able to add these after the campaign through the pledge manager.

Will there be a Print and Play option?

No. We learnt that less than 0.5% of backers actually took us up on our Print and Play option so we can’t really justify investing resources in a PnP version.

Will there be add-ons in this campaign?

Let’s see how far the funding takes us.

I just backed a game about aliens recently - how is this different?

They are nothing alike, we assure you. There’s some discussion here about the differences: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1920216/lifeform-vs-nemesis

No reviews?

There’s a full play-through video of the game on the main Kickstarter page for you to make up your own mind. Also, check out our collective back catalogue of games - we have great pedigree. :)

Planning for card sleeves: what are the size of the cards, and how many of each size are there?

We use Swan Sleeves - 64mm x 89mm for the 63mm x 88mm sized cards. Pic here: https://boardgamegeek.com/image/3584577/ninjadorg?size=large Sleeving is a very personal thing though, so your mileage may vary…

In limited quantities in the UK and the US yes, as well as foreign language versions in French and German. The RRP will be £50.

Will this Kickstarter affect production of 1066, Tears to Many Mothers?

1066, Tears to Many Mothers has already been sent off to the printers and will be delivered within the next few months.

How do I make sure my credit card will process payment for foreign currency?

Speak to your credit card provider and advise them that there will be a single unusual transaction on your account at the end of this month.

What about Brexit??

The games are coming from China, so in the unlikely event that Brexit causes UK hubs to cease operating effectively we’ll use alternative hubs, like we’re already doing with the US and Australia.

What type of beer goes best with a game of Lifeform? ;)

A rum and coke! We’re avoiding too many carbs this month…

Are there any Kickstarter exclusives?

Kickstarter funding means Lifeform will exist. That’s pretty exclusive.

Last updated: March 29, 2018 01:32

Is it not fully coop?

We love coop games, but there are plenty off fully coop games out there already, and the dynamic of Lifeform keys beautifully off one player stalking and killing the other players as the utterly hostile lifeform. It also plays quickly enough that you can swap roles and set up again very soon afterwards. That said, there may be a fully coop expansion in the future.

Schwerkraft-Verlag on the German language version of Lifeform:

Die deutsche Ausgabe kann versandkostenfrei am Verlagssitz in Oberhausen oder am Warenlager in Langenfeld abgeholt werden.

Die Versandkosten sind eine Pauschale. Auch wenn weitere Exemplare des Spiels hinzugefügt werden, bleiben die Versandkosten gleich.

£ 8 Deutschland £ 12 Österreich £ 45 Übrige Länder (alle außer Deutschland und Österreich)

How do I add a second copy of Lifeform to my pledge?

If you increase your pledge by £46 for the extra copy (or £58 if you want the expansion again too) we will only charge you the shipping for just one copy. Message me here after the campaign to confirm and I will arrange this for you directly. Many thanks for your support!

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
