Moonshell Update Video #3
about 1 month ago – Wed, Jun 16, 2021 at 12:54:20 AM

Hello everyone!Β 

We just filmed and edited our latest update video!

Sorry for the slight delay, we've had a medical emergency over the course of the last week.Β 

However this should not be affecting our scheduled manufacturing date. We are looking goodΒ 

correcting the last bits of changes regarding the rules, sizing and solo mode gameplay. This should

all come to a close within the next week and then hopefully manufacturing will be underway.

If you haven't seen the sample manufactured copy, here's Calli to give you a little taste of what's swimming in the mermaid lagoon!

Sample Production Copy Arrived!
about 2 months ago – Thu, Jun 03, 2021 at 07:24:20 AM

Hello backers! We received an exciting package from our manufacturer: the sample production copy of Moonshell!

Check out some sneak peak photos below!

We are very pleased overall, especially with the thickness of the boards (mermaid boards, treasure chest boards, ocean board) and tiles, how nice the colors printed, and the quality of the box. There are a few elements to adjust, such as the size of the ocean board art, the updated rulebook copy, and a few cards, and the insert before we hit "go" on the full manufacturing process.

Please excuse our mess and boxes - the Unfiltered Games team is moving this week. We are excited to set up a filming studio in the new house and post a video of the sample production copy after the move!

Thank you for your support!

Moonshell surveys and store coming soon
3 months ago – Wed, Apr 28, 2021 at 06:37:52 AM

We have confirmation to open the Moonshell pre-order store with Backerkit and will start sending out surveys tomorrow! You may not get one right away. Please wait a week before reaching out if you don't receive your survey.

In the survey you will be able to adjust your pledge order by adding on any additional copies of the game, pins and/or deluxe wooden inserts. It will show you your total cost, including taxes if applicable and shipping, but it will not charge you until we close the store. Β The store will close in about a month or so to give everyone ample time to complete the survey.

The store will also be open for late pledges! So if Kickstarter was unable to charge your card, or if you know someone else who would enjoy getting a copy of Moonshell, they can still join the party!Β 

Our next order of business is an update regarding the games progress!

Moonshell prototypes from the manufacturer are in production and expected to be here within the next week or two. When the games arrive we will be sharing an unboxing video and discussing any changes we will make for the final version of the game. Another thing of note, the game will be shipped out to Sandbox Gaming so that they can prepare the deluxe wooden inserts to fit the game to perfection.Β 

Our plan now is to produce timely updates in regards to manufacturing progress and timelines -how soon it will hit your doorstep. a As previously stated we are hoping to get the games to you by the end of this year and if all goes well, even sooner!

Please ask away in the comments below and we will get back to you asap! We look forward to showing you more in the very near future.Β
