FAQ: Overlords of Infamy - A Board Game of Silly Super-Villainy!
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

What is included in the art book?

Every piece of artwork that we own related to Overlords of Infamy (and then some, probably!) will be included in the art book. You can see how the characters evolved to where they are today, and how the resources have changed. We'll probably also have some photos from the original prototype. Oh, and the backstories for each Overlord, and for Planet Fred itself! Last updated: Wed, Feb 17 2016 5:42 pm EST

Why does the artwork look different between your videos etc, but different on the project page?

While we love the art on that is present on our prototypes, we wanted to go in a different direction for the finished product. Hence the artwork that you see on this page is moving in the direction of how the final game will look. That said, we are always open to suggestion for art direction!

Who did the artwork for your game?

Over the two years we've been working on this game, we've gone through several artists to find who fits the project best. We are very pleased to feature the beautiful styles of Jacqi Inouye and Doug Scott and we're sure you'll love it as well! Last updated: Wed, Feb 17 2016 2:54 pm EST

I noticed there are bananas in your videos and project images. Are they included in the game?

Sorry, the bananas are only for scale! Last updated: Wed, Feb 17 2016 3:07 pm EST

Who is manufacturing Overlords of Infamy?

We're working with QPC Games (http://www.qpcgames.com/) to manufacture Overlords of Infamy. They've been great so far! Last updated: Wed, Feb 17 2016 3:07 pm EST

Your shipping date is set to April 2017, why so long?

We are committed to getting the game shipped out to you ASAP, while still maintaining a quality game. We would like to get it out to you before the end of the year, if possible. However, we also know that delays can happen completely out of the blue (examples: shutdown of the manufacturing plant, strikes at the ports, delays in artwork approval, etc.) The last thing we want to do is promise that it'll be here early, then miss the shipping date by months because of something going wrong. Still, we will make sure that your game ships as soon as we are physically able. Last updated: Fri, Feb 19 2016 5:29 pm EST

Your wooden bits look fantastic! Where did you get them?

We used the excellent products provided by Meeplesource for our wooden bits. It is still up in the air if we will have wooden bits in the game, and if we do, we are not yet decided on who will make them. Last updated: Wed, Feb 17 2016 3:07 pm EST

The continuity in your project video seems to jump around a bit, almost if you meant for the video to be as whimsical as your game.

Continuity? Stop making up words. Last updated: Wed, Feb 17 2016 3:07 pm EST

I followed an advertisement here that indicated your game was gluten free, is this accurate?

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://overlords-of-infamy.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
