I am proud to announce that in partnership with Eagle Games, we are ready to launch the Dawn – Rise of the Occulites Kickstarter this Wednesday 19th June at 9pm US EST
I will post the link to the KS here when it launches, but until then, please spread the word!
The full base rulebook will be available to download on launch, so you will be able to properly evaluate whether or not this is the game for you. It is a huge box, with lots of components. You will have the option to purchase the game with coloured plastic figures or with pre-paints if you so choose.
We also have some very cool stretch goals and add ons to help immerse you in the Occulite world. We are very excited to finally share the game with you all.
If you have any questions at all, please ask away!
I hope everyone is doing well. I apologise for the lack of updates lately, but I have been extremely busy finalising art and working hard to make sure that Dawn – Rise of the Occulites is the very best it can be.
I received some great feedback from my cold readers of the rulebook which I am using to redo the layout of the rules to make it even more accessible. While this takes time, I know that it will be worth it for everyone that picks up the game. So as part of relaying out the rulebook, I decided to go with a different front cover for the book itself. You will find this below and I hope that you find it as endearing as I do. 🙂
The Kickstarter launch draws ever closer and I will be sure to announce here when I have a firm date in hand. But rest assured it will be worth the wait!
All the best guys and thanks for your continued support!
I’ve been playing around with some artwork for potential card backs for Dawn: Rise of the Occulites and would love to hear your thoughts on which you like best and why.
So far there are six options. Please let me know which one you prefer and just as, if not more importantly – why you like it.
If you like bits from several different card backs, just let me know as well please.
Please vote below and then post your thoughts and any comments, feedback or suggestions as a comment to this post. Your help in shaping what the card backs will look like is much appreciated.
A very warm welcome and a Happy New Year to everyone! We hope that 2013 brings excitement, laughter and great times to all!
We are looking forward to the Dawning of the Rise of the Occulites Saga with our first boardgame coincidentally titled “Dawn – Rise of the Occulites”, which will debut on Kickstarter with Eagle Games early this year. Please look for announcements about our upcoming Kickstarter soon! Please also consider spreading the word about the game if its something that intrigues you or you like the look of. It helps us get the word out there.
Have a look around the site for information about the game and the setting itself. There are some videos showing some of the gameplay concepts and what the characters look like.
Thanks for your support, we are most grateful for it indeed.
Happy holidays and welcome to the Rise of the Occulites.

Would love to hear your thoughts guys!
Today I wanted to show off the box cover art for Dawn – Rise of the Occulites. This thing took many, many hours of work, but I am proud of how it came out.
If anyone wants a high resolution image to use as a desktop background, please let me know and I’ll upload one here. 🙂
I hope that you guys enjoy it and that when it is on the box lid, it attracts many curious gamers to check it out!
To address Rodrigo’s comment below, here is an alternate option with a faded background to help draw your eye to the Occulites themselves. Bottom right corner will have either Eagle Games logo or Darwin Games logo.
Here is one more option that I’ve been playing around with. Let me know which one you prefer.
I plan to release a series of short videos that take you through some of the gameplay concepts in Dawn: Rise of the Occulites.
The first in the series can be viewed right here:
If there’s something in particular you’d like to see, please let me know and I’ll address it in one of the next few videos. I hope you enjoy it and please consider spreading the word.
Remember, Dawn – Rise of the Occulites will launch on Kickstarter with Eagle Games early in 2013.
