An Update from the Project Team: Expansions, Contests and Free Stuff!

Hello world, and thanks to all of you who’ve embraced our game with such enthusiasm.  This is how cults start, which we find quite heartwarming.  Our first free Lurker, the Human/Fishman Hybrid, has been posted over in the Resources area.  We have some big stuff planned for next month (Rocktober!) to feed your unspeakable hunger.  Only a few short weeks to wait!  We’ll also have some contests, which will give you a chance to win Strange Aeons swag and potentially even get some of your creative ideas into the future of the game.

We’re hard at work on the first expansion for the game, which we hope to have available by Q2 2010.  There are also some other exciting projects in development, which we’ll be sure to fill you in on as they come closer to becoming a reality.

The online store has been working smoothly so far.  Please note that we’re not actually using the online order tracking system (Mike is a recovering Luddite – go easy on him!), so if you have a question about your order status, send us a message directly at orders@unclemikesworldwide.com.

Second, the first 50 paid preorders will receive a free limited figure: Agent Lovecraft!

If you’re not sure about the game yet, make sure to try the Sample Game Kit for a chance to do battle with (or as – your choice!) nefarious cultists.

The Stars are Right!

Our first shipment of rulebooks has arrived!  The “official” release is scheduled for the end of July, but we’re going to start taking preorders as soon as possible.  Check back here July 1st for preorder info, plus a special announcement.

The first four months of miniature releases are set, and pictures of the painted models are now posted on the site.  There’s a few here that haven’t been released for public view before – enjoy!

Also check out our demo game package.  It includes everything you’ll need (apart from a few minis and dice) to try out a small game of Strange Aeons for yourself.

New Website

Welcome to our new website, which we hope you’ll agree is much nicer (and distinctly less 1998) than the old one.  What can we say – we’re more concerned about packing as many tentacles as we can into the game than we are about brushing up our HTML skills.
