Latest Updates from Our Project:
Last Chance to Pre-Order & New Gameplay Preview
about 1 month ago
– Fri, Apr 19, 2019 at 02:32:13 AM
On Tuesday night, John and Jeremy previewed the current beta of Aeon's End live on Twitch. If you missed it live, you can now watch it on YouTube at your leisure. Did our team of Xaxos and Phaedraxa defeat Rageborne and save Gravehold for another day? You'll just have to watch to find out!
Get your add-ons and pre-orders in ASAP! We'll be locking down orders in a little over 24 hours, at noon Eastern tomorrow (Friday, April 19th). We will then be charging cards on Monday, April 22nd.
A reminder - if you pre-ordered the Nameless expansion, you will ONLY be charged if another thousand people order it in the next 24 hours. That seems pretty unlikely at this point, but stranger things have happened...
Fill out your surveys - Beta starts soon

We are thrilled to report that Aeon's End is very close to entering the Beta testing phase! If you backed at a level that includes Beta Team Membership, now would be a good time to head over to BackerKit and confirm that you've completed your survey so we can get you all signed up. We can't wait to have more Aeon's End fans exploring the game to help us get it ready for launch this summer.
The important dates to remember are:
We will be locking down orders on Friday, April 19th at Noon Eastern.
We will be charging pre-orders/add-ons on Monday, April 22nd at Noon Eastern.
With the game entering Beta soon, the next phase of development will be Early Access some time in the next couple of months. As a reminder, all backers who pledged at a level that includes the game will receive their Steam Key at Early Access launch. The only thing you need to do is make sure your survey is filled out.
The Fate of the Nameless
Looking at the velocity of pre-orders, it seems pretty unlikely that we will pre-fund The Nameless expansion in the next 2 weeks. However, we still very much want to make it (as well as the rest of the great Aeon's End content out there)! This means that we'll just have to wait to see how the game sells in Early Access and after launch to decide how to fund the development of expansion content. Having a solid Early Access period and a big launch will be the best way to get the funds to start working on expansions.
Join us on Tuesday, April 16th at 7 pm Eastern on Handelabra Live to see John and Jeremy playing the beta! The last time we played Aeon's End on stream it was still the Kickstarter Demo, and it's come a long way since then. Tune in to see if we can defeat the nemesis and save Gravehold!
Development Update, The New Age Kickstarter Ending Soon
2 months ago
– Tue, Mar 12, 2019 at 07:22:52 PM
Greetings mages! It's been nearly a month since our last update, so we wanted to let you know how things are coming along.
Pre-orders are still available, and we're up to nearly $2,500 in add-ons and 854 pre-orders of The Nameless. Pre-orders will remain open until the game goes into Early Access later this spring. Tell your friends to pre-order now to save a few dollars and help us reach stretch goals!
There are 2 distinct parts to the development of Aeon's End: the rules engine and the UI. The development stream John did last month focused on integrating the 2 parts. Progress has been going well in all areas, especially the rules engine, where most of the game content has been programmed. The only core game content remaining to be programmed in the rules engine is the nemesis Crooked Mask. We are well into alpha testing on the core game content.
Once Crooked Mask is added to the rules engine, it too will enter alpha testing. After the UI integration is complete, we plan to get the first beta build into the hands of the beta team. If you backed at a level that included beta team membership, now would be a good time to double-check your BackerKit dashboard to make sure you're all set for when the beta drops.
The New Age
The next chapter in the Aeon's End story is still live on Kickstarter for 2 more days! The campaign recently surpassed $400k, and has unlocked lots of stretch goals. Check it out while it's still live!

If you missed it live last week, Developer Stream #5 is now available on our YouTube channel. Get a peek behind the curtain to see how we're building Aeon's End for digital as John integrates more game content into the UI.
A new generation of mages has risen to protect Gravehold. This latest chapter has new cards, new mechanics, new unique breaches, and even a replayable campaign that works with your other Aeon's End content (that sounds like it will make a cool addition to the video game some day)!
Head over to the campaign page to explore the next phase of Aeon's End now.
Development Stream Wednesday: Redux

If you tried to join us last Wednesday for the dev stream with John, you know that Twitch was having some difficulties, and so the stream was postponed. As a result, we'll be doing the dev stream today at 1 pm Eastern. John will be working on integrating more Aeon's End core game content into the user interface.
The show starts at 1 pm Eastern on Twitch. If you can’t watch live, fear not! Twitch subscribers can always watch the replay at their leisure, or check out our YouTube channel for the rebroadcast next week.
