A journey of discovery…

Dawn has been Relaunched and is live on Kickstarter now!

G’day guys,

After a lot of hard work by both Eagle Games and Darwin Games, the Kickstarter Campaign for Dawn – Rise of the Occulites has been relaunched!

A lot of thought and effort has been put into making this second time around more successful. So the campaign has been restructured with a lower goal, there have been new stretch goals introduced, new art for the cards and we have been able to get a very high quality pre paint organised. To be honest, I was shocked at how good they look. There is virtually no difference between the prepaints and the studio paint jobs now. This has cost us a bit more to achieve this quality, but we have been able to maintain the previous pledge costings as before for both Puscual and Sunmaster levels.

Card BackWe hope that you will join us again this time around and if you didn’t join in on the fun of the first Kickstarter, we hope to see you over there for our second.

You can check it out here:


Please share the link with your gaming mates and families and friends that are looking for an endearingly quirky, but incredibly fun and replayable game. Let’s get Dawn funded quickly so that we can start unlocking the stretch goals. We have some more up our sleeves and with your help, we may be able to reach them!

Cheers and thanks for the support!

  1. You probably want to focus on the positives of this project, but I would love to hear what went wrong the first time around, and what you’ve done that you hope has improved your chances this time. I’m planning to launch my own kickstarter for the game I’ve designed, and I’m looking for all the advice I can get before I take the plunge.

    When looking at games to buy on kickstarter, I always look for cool game mechanics. It might just be me…maybe you can point me to a video of a sample game 🙂

      G’day Wylliam,
      I would like to focus on the positives of the project as it is going really smoothly this time. But I’m happy to tell you what changed since last time.
      1) We improved the quality of the prepaints and were actually able to display them this time.
      2) We had all the shipping sorted from the start this time
      3) Our communication has been better this time
      4) Improved card art and layout
      5) Restructured the campaign, providing worthwhile, regular and realistic goals. We didn’t get ahead of ourselves like we did last time.

      You can see some sample games linked on the Kickstarter page if you wanted to check it out. There is also a review by Lance (Undead Viking) which is also linked there.

      I hope that helps!
