It continues with new crowdfunding projects in the tenth calendar week and thus in March 2021: Various publishers are planning the launch of their Kickstarter campaigns this week, Eagle-Gryphon Games is even represented twice with Faux Diamonds and two sporty roll-and-write -Play. And: The already announced Eternal Palace campaign will start this week. There is some German participation through Academy Games and Uwe Eickert, who is sending the adaptation of Paradox's grand strategy game Stellaris into the running.

Already announced last week, but without a start date, is now available again Alley Cat Games' Eternal Palace on the list of starters. The Kickstarter campaign for the dice placement game with an Asian setting will start on March 8th. The highlight this week is another one: Stellaris - Infinite Legacy.

SPOTLIGHT: Stellaris - Infinite Legacy

Academy Games is taking on a difficult legacy and is trying to adapt the strategy game Stellaris, with which the Swedish publisher Paradox Interactive has launched the grand strategy genre into space. The mission for Uwe Eickert is as clear as it is demanding: to bring a profound game to the table at home. The video game has shown what it's about, now Academy Games “just” has to imitate it.

Easy said. Nevertheless: The announced basic mechanics are convincing. Comparatively short games with a playing time of around two hours, a real 4X feel, a legacy system without material waste and decisions that have consequences for the course of the game. There hasn't been much to see of Stellaris - Infinite Legacy so far, fans are correspondingly cautious, even if the basic tenor clearly speaks in favor of a financial success.

There is no tangible information about what it is about in terms of play, how individual mechanics interlock and how pronounced the story component will ultimately be. So here fans have to wait for the crowdfunding campaign to start. Not even pictures of the game material have yet been published. Rather unusual for a campaign with such a popular license.

Academy Games promises a 4X experience with a non-linear gameplay. That alone sounds exciting enough to make the Stellaris - Infinite Legacy campaign on Kickstarter at least to keep an eye on. It starts on March 11th.
