Happy New Year

On behalf of Game-O-Gami, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year, Prospero Año Nuevo, Yoi Otoshi Wo, etc, etc…  2015 has been a big year for Game-O-Gami as indie game developers, and we will be working very hard to make sure that 2016 is even bigger and brighter!

Art Progress

The stretch goal Kickstarter project for Immortal this past October was a success, thanks to our dedicated fans and supporters! Since then, we have been working on the artwork for Immortal‘s two new pantheons (Celtic and Egyptian mythologies), and have made excellent progress. A few new artists have been brought onto the project to help finish the remaining illustrations for the game, art book, and playing cards.

The first of these is Andrei Pervukhin, an extremely talented artist from Russia. Below are a few of the new characters from world mythology that he has contributed to this project: Sobek, Osiris, and Khnum from the Egyptian pantheon, and Great Turtle from the American pantheon.

Andrei really knows how to capture the feel of different environments, and is particularly good at painting water and textures. You can see more of Andrei’s excellent artwork in his portfolio.

The second new illustrator for Immortal is a versatile digital artist from China, who goes by the pen name RING. Below are a few of the character illustrations that he has recently contributed: Amaterasu (Japanese sun goddess), the Banshee (Celtic harbinger of death), Hathor (Egyptian goddess of love and motherhood), and Spider Grandmother (American creation spirit).

His brush and color techniques are really impressive, as is his ability to quickly grasp and sketch out a concept. You can see more examples of his skills in his portfolio.

If your eyes are hungry for more of the deluxe artwork that we are creating for Immortal, you can visit our gallery page.

Pre-Orders

If you or your friends would like to own this game, you can pre-order Immortal: Master Set One, the add-on card packs, the standard edition art book, and the mythology playing cards on our store page.

Immortal is due to be delivered to Kickstarter backers and Pre-Order customers in spring 2017, and then released to retail stores shortly after.

We will be sharing more of the artwork and game design previews that we have been working on for Immortal, as we build up to our mid-year release of the board game. Once again, Happy New Year!

Immortal, Game-O-Gami’s strategy game of warring mythologies, successfully funded on Kickstarter and is now in pre-production for its 2016 release! Now we have launched a new Kickstarter project to expand Immortal with 2 new pantheon factions, adding the Egyptians and Celtics to EVERY COPY of the game! This is a short, 2-week project, ending on October 8th.

Immortal - a strategy game of warring mythologies

If this “stretch goal” project is successful, we’ll be able to add 36 new unique characters inspired by Egyptian and Celtic mythology, along with their amazing artwork and new special abilities, to the board game before it goes to print. With your help, we will be able to pack 50% more cards, artwork, and gameplay into Immortal’s debut release.

You can back Immortal now to get all 6 factions and the limited edition card packs!

We are also creating a new deck of custom Playing Cards, featuring Immortal’s beautiful artwork on every card (54 unique characters!) Unlike most custom playing card decks, which only illustrate the face cards, every card in the Immortal Playing Card Deck will be illustrated with a fascinating character from world mythology.

All new artwork created for this project will also be added to the Deluxe Edition of Immortal – An Art Book of Myths and Legends from around the World, which you can also get from the current Kickstarter project as an add-on reward.

Immortal - Mythology Playing Cards

The Immortal Playing Cards deck is an awe-inspiring work of art for collectors of custom playing cards and lovers of world mythology.

Your favorite myths are being brought to life through these stunning cards – painted by talented and trending fantasy concept artists, including Xia Taptara, Milek Jakubiec, Monika Palosz, Grant Griffard, Kian Ng, and David Sanhueza.

Every one of the 54 cards will feature a unique illustration of a god, goddess, hero, or monster from the myths and legends of four distinct cultures: ancient Norse, Greek, Japanese, and Egyptian.

Immortal - Mythology Playing Cards

Thank you for backing this Kickstarter project for the board game and/or the playing cards, today! Your pledge dollars go towards helping indie artists make our dream projects for you to enjoy. The Kickstarter project for the Egyptians, Celtics, and Playing Cards will run until Thursday, October 8th.

And in related news…

Immortal: Master Set One

Shout-Outs to the Media

I would like to express a special THANK YOU to all of the game reviewers, bloggers, and journalists who helped promote Immortal during its Kickstarter campaign. These are awesome, friendly people who love games. Their support, both publicly and privately, is something that I greatly appreciate, and is one of the reasons that I love being in this industry.
