Latest Updates from Our Project:

PDF and Minis Update + Sideshow Adventure Preview!
11 days ago – Tue, Feb 23, 2021 at 09:42:22 PM

Hey backers!

Got some new progress that we'd like to share on the book, minis and more!

Book/PDF Progress

We have some news on the writing front! The entire book is currently under revision. We’ve brought on a secondary writer as well as a new editor to help with development and content edits during this revision process! Right now, we anticipate that should be done by the end of March, which means we can look at releasing the beta within the weeks following wrapping up those edits.


We know we had an earlier estimate in the past, but we really want to make sure everything is up to snuff before it gets released. Thank you for your patience! We’ll keep you updated on the revision process.

Minis

The artists have been hard at work sculpting new minis! Take a look at who’s joined The Revelia recently.

En"thralled"

Heckin' Pets

Myrmidion
Snout

Heckna Himself

Revelers

Sugar Rush

Sideshow Adventure Preview: Dastardly Disco

As apart of the stretch goals we promised to make an additional side quest for your party to partake in! We're building this so you can use it as apart of the main campaign or a stand alone piece, let us know what you think!


Slap on your dancing shoes and boogie on over to the Dastardly Disco! This never-ending party overflows with music, bright lights, and a host of enticing new dance partners. Think you can keep up?

You’ll never want to leave this party! (As if that was even an option…)

Beta and Minis Update + Tunnel of Love Preview!
about 2 months ago – Tue, Jan 19, 2021 at 01:29:34 PM

Happy new year, backers! Here’s our first update of 2021 with some more information on editing for the beta release, a look at some fresh minis designs and a closer look at the Tunnel of Love!


Book/PDF Progress

In our last update, we mentioned our editing team was hard at work with some major development edits and revisions. Some less fun news is that revisions are still ongoing, but we also have good news! We’re looking at bringing on another writer to help with this process.


Though we don’t have a date for the beta release just yet, with more hands-on deck it will come sooner rather than later. Thanks for your patience!


Minis Update - Got Your Nose! 

The Got Your Nose set is complete! What do you think? We certainly wouldn’t want to meet any of these shady characters in a dark alley in The Revelia. 


*Designs subject to change.

The Tunnel of Love

Are you feeling the love? Settle into a swan boat with a loved one and get whisked away on a romantic ride through this heart-shaped tunnel! Did we mention it’s anatomically correct?

The Tunnel of Love is one of The Revelia’s most iconic rides--just ask the many Plasma Punks who loiter outside! Try to ignore their teasing, that outfit looks great on you, actually.

Please keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. Consume the contents of the red river (probably wine) at your own discretion.

Take a jaunty ride down the Tunnel of Love! 2 people per boat please! (Art by Justin Chan)
Come take a dip! (Art by Justin Chan)

Who knows what other excitement the Tunnel of Love has in store, be sure to check it out on your next trip to the Revelia!

PDF Update + Popcorn Swarm Preview!
3 months ago – Sat, Dec 05, 2020 at 07:29:12 PM

Hey backers!

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy as we approach the end of a year more fitting to experience in The Revelia! Here’s a quick update on some of the progress we’ve made since wrapping up the campaign.

Book/PDF Progress

The writing is done! (Whoo!) The next step is editing. Heckna is currently undergoing some reconstructive surgery (Sophie may or may not be involved) with a major round of developmental edits and revisions, which the team anticipates to be complete by the end of the year. Once this is complete, we can look towards releasing a beta version.

Minis Update

Our artists are currently still working to build the remaining minis and are eager to share some models with you once they’re complete! We know many of you are waiting patiently for a look at a few more of the minis before completing your survey. Rest assured, we want to make sure that we provide a preview of a couple more before locking surveys to ensure everyone who is interested in minis gets the opportunity to add them to their pledge.

Bard Thrall (pose not final)
Popcorn! or is it? (model not final)

We’re looking forward to sharing the finals with you when they're ready!

Wait is that a new Logo???

Yup! While working on the packaging design we came into some issues with how the current logo looked so we went back to the drawing board and improved the logo while we were at it! Let us know what you think! :D

4 months ago – Wed, Nov 04, 2020 at 11:45:52 AM

Hey backers! 

Thank you to everyone who tuned in last week for the Heckna Halloween livestream! What did you think of the first taste of the Revelia?

Miss the stream? Watch the VOD!

Hecknaween VOD

What did you unlock? Heckna music for your campaign!

Through upgrades, add-ons and late pledges through BackerKit, we’ve reached the 700k milestone which means Mint Potion will be composing 10 Heckna themed tracks!


As we get new tracks in we'll share them here! Here's a link to the original teaser in the meantime :D

FINAL STRETCHGOAL: HECKNA! COMIC

One more to go!

There are so many stories to tell about Heckna and the Revelia. This final stretch goal will allow us to team up with Gail Simone (Clean Room, Birds of Prey, Deadpool, Wonder Woman) to bring those stories to life!

Available as PDF only, included in all tiers. Slated release, 2021.

Mini Mini Reminder

We know how important it is for our backers to see more of the renders before committing to adding miniatures to their pledge! As we release designs, you’ll be able to add to or modify your pledge.

We’ll share designs as soon as we’re able! The remaining minis are still being built as they were an unlocked stretch goal. Our artists are working to get them built as quickly as they can!

Surveys, Preorders + Heckna Halloween Stream!
4 months ago – Fri, Oct 30, 2020 at 01:20:53 AM

Hey backers! 

Surveys have been sent out, thank you for your patience!

We ask that you complete it as soon as possible so we can start to prepare our orders with the production facility. The longer this step takes the longer we have to wait for the product! We’re looking to get 80% of the surveys filled before production starts so we can ensure we have enough for everyone.

You’ve sent the surveys out but I didn’t get it. What do I do?

Double-check what e-mail you used to back the Kickstarter at the time of your pledge! That’s what gets pulled to BackerKit and where the survey will be sent to.

Check your junk folder! Sometimes the surveys get swept up by spam filters and removed from your primary inbox.

Use this link to send your survey again! Ensure you submit the email you used to make your original pledge. 

If you still can’t locate the survey and don’t receive it by the end of the month, send a message to support at support@hitpointpress.com and we’ll look into the issue further.

Can I upgrade my pledge through the survey?

Absolutely! Right underneath the Get Started button when you launch the survey will be a link labeled switch your pledge level. Click it!

When will my card be charged?

Cards won’t be charged for pledge upgrades or add-ons right away when you complete the survey. We will start charging when we know product is en route to the warehouse. We'll be sure to post updates regarding this.

My delivery address is in the UK or Europe. Why are there two shipping options? Which should I choose?

We’ve built the survey so we’re able to offer our backers with delivery addresses in the UK or Europe the option to ship their rewards by courier from our warehouse or to have their rewards included on a pallet that will be sent to a distribution centre and shipped from there during fulfillment. Backers we don’t receive an answer from for this question will be automatically placed on the pallet.

To make this decision, consider how long you’re willing to wait for your rewards and if you’re willing to take on any VATs, import taxes or customs fees.

I don’t mind the wait and would like to save money!

Great! Choose the pallet option!

I don’t mind the potential additional costs for VATs, import taxes or customs fees and would like to get my rewards ASAP!

Fantastic! Choose the ship as soon as the package is ready option!

My delivery address isn’t in the UK or Europe. How do I answer this question?

Choose the skip option!

Preorders are live!

Did you or a friend miss out on the Kickstarter? It’s not too late to pick up the campaign setting and add-ons!
