The November Update

Woah Nelly, it’s the end of November already!

In this edition of our monthly update we have; Backer Surveys, Kingless Production updates, the sound of Alex and a peek at some of the images from our recent photoshoot!

Backer Surveys 

This is the big one. If you have not seen it already, we have now sent out our backer surveys to all backers. These should be waiting for you in your inboxes. If you have already completed your survey, that’s awesome. Hang tight, we should have some further details very soon on shipping dates.
 

Kingless Production

Kingless production is well underway, in fact, we have been given word that Kingless will finish production in the first week of December.

As part of this process, the first copy off of the production line is sent to us. This was shipped last week and should be arriving in the next couple of days. We might try and do a little unboxing video as well, so keep an eye out for that!

We don’t have any solid details on the shipping date at this stage. As always, as soon as we can lock in some concrete info we will share with you all. But unfortunately, it does not look like we will be able to get Kingless to you in time for Christmas. As disappointing as this news is, we are doing everything we can to get Kingless to you as soon as possible. But, as I know you are all well aware, things are a little crazy at the moment.

Flavours of Alex

You have had a taste of Nathan and Sebastian now you can experience the sounds inside the head of Alex. They say creativity comes from within… Well, we don’t know where this man gets it. But what we do know is there are some bangers in the Flavours of Alex!


That is all for the November update. I’m not sure when we will be sending the December one out – We will try our best to keep to the schedule…

We are going to end a little different today. We had some awesome photos taken of Kingless recently, so I’m going to sign off here and let you have a look around!
 

Take care and see you in December.

Alex, Nathan and Sebastian.

The October Update

Goodbye October! 

Time flies when you are having fun and what a fun month it has been for us! 

You might have already seen if you follow Kingless on Twitter/Facebook – But we received the first-ever pre-production model of Kingless at the start of the month (Actually, it missed the September update by a matter of days!). We are delighted to be able to share a couple of quick snaps of the externals of the box!

Unlike digital games, we can’t send out a day 1 patch to fix any bugs or typos, so we have been vigorously checking, checking and checking again to make sure we have not missed anything! This PPC has been put through its paces! 

We are currently in the process of taking some professional photos of the box and cards. As with everything we do, we want to make sure it is of the highest quality possible. Can’t wait to share these with you all very soon!

Podcast

We mentioned in the September update that we were joining the Neon City Daily team on their Developer Spotlight podcast. That’s now live and you can check it out on your podcast player of choice.

Push the button!

We saved the best until the middle – A few days ago (the 23rd to be precise) – We pushed the big red button and manufacturing of Kingless has officially begun! 

We don’t have any further details on timelines just yet, but as soon as we do we will share these with you.

Surveys

With manufacturing underway, we now have solid details on dimensions, weights etc. With this intel, we can start preparing our shipping surveys. We are using Backerkit to assist with this process, so it should be nice and simple for everyone to get their details locked in. 

Expect these to be hitting your inboxes within the next couple of weeks. We will make a separate post on Kickstarter announcing when they go out. Just wanted to give you all a little heads up.

Flavours of Sebastian

Last month you had the pleasure of diving into the playlist of Nathan. This month it’s all about me! 

Dust off that Spotify account and indulge in a menagerie of tracks that tickle my synapses. Don’t judge!

Discord

Have we mentioned Discord before? It’s a great place to hang out and keep in touch with the Two19 team. Backers get their own special role (Just ask Blosy, he will help you out), with access to a private lounge.

We were also now Verified by Discord, so that’s pretty exciting! ✅
 


Well, that’s all folks! 

We will see you all next month for another juicy round-up, but until then, keep safe and stop by and say hi 👋 on the socials

Alex, Nathan and Sebastian.

The September Update

Hello again everyone! 

It might look like a short update this month, but wow is it an exciting one!

Kicking off with Something a little different

A few days ago, we sat down with Josh, Nick and Dave from Neon City Daily to talk about Kingless on their Dev Spotlight podcast. If you have not heard of Neon City Daily, check them out! They are a local (to us anyway) group doing some awesome work with their various podcast offerings. While they mainly focus on video games, they also have some board game devs on, like us!

The Episode will be going live on the 4th of October – You can check out the podcast over on their website or search Neon City Daily on your podcast player of choice.

Pre-Production!

Now for something even more exciting… Our pre-production model is on the way! 

That’s right, we have been hard at work getting all the files proofed and signed off. PandaGM has been amazing at helping us through the process. The team over there is absolutely fantastic and without doubt, we are in great hands. 

Right now, the first-ever, pre-production copy of Kingless landed in Australia and is making it’s way to the Two19 HQ. It should only be a matter of days before we get our hands on it now! 

This is a huge step in the development of Kingless. Once we have spent some time with the PPC, checking, checking and checking again, we will be moving into full-scale manufacturing. 

We will be teasing some photos of the PPC when we have it – so again, keep an eye on the social channels for a first look! But we will, of course, share a roundup in our next update with you all.

The Big Milkshake: The flavours of… Nathan!

Last month we shared our Neon Milkshake playlist with you. This month… we are sharing The Flavours of Nathan! A handcrafted mixtape of Nathans personal TOP 30 tracks! 

Get into the head of Two19’s Director of Games Design and play the songs that inspired Kingless! kinda…

Two19 Expedition Map

Back in August, we mentioned we were working on a public roadmap for Two19. Well, here it is! You can read the full announcement over on The Big Milkshake. But in short, The Expedition Map is an overview of everything going on at Two19. 

We wanted to provide a way for people to see what we were up to, whenever they wanted. Not only on the current status of Kingless but everything that is going on behind the scenes at Two19.

Join us again next month when we’ll return with even more exciting news. Who knows what’s going to happen between now and then!

Until next time… stay safe and join us on Discord! 👋 – As a backer, if you use the !backer command, you will gain access to the backer lounge channel and role.

See ya! 

Alex, Nathan & Sebastian.

The Two19 Expedition Map

Back in our July Kickstarter update, we teased we were working on a public Roadmap for Two19. 

It took a little longer than expected, but I am pleased to announce the launch of the Two19 Expedition Map!

While we are committed to providing updates to our super awesome Kingless backers every month, we wanted to be able to provide an overview of everything that is going on at Two19

We are visual people at Two19 – While we love being able to provide detail in our monthly newsletters, we wanted to allow anyone the opportunity to check-in, any time, to see how we are progressing. Not only on Kingless but on all of our projects. Even some you’ve never heard of before! 

That’s why we built The Two19 Expedition Map. It’s a super easy to use, visual representation of our company roadmap. You can scroll around (both desktop and mobile) and zoom in on different areas. We have a little Star Guide at the bottom that should help you figure things out.  

We are and will be constantly updating the Expedition Map. Keep an eye on our twitter as we will share there when new changes are published.
