In less than 48 hours, we have reached our funding goal and today, more pledges are still coming in! Thank you very much to all those who backed our project (especially the Uber Dwarf and the Legends) and spreading the word to your friends.

A new Dwarf faction called the Stoneborne is currently in development with new heroes, campaigns, underground maps, and more!
July 21, 2016, Singapore – After launching fantasy-themed strategy game Legends of Callasia on Steam last month, Southeast Asian game studio Boomzap Entertainment returns to Kickstarter for the crowdfunding of a new expansion pack, which introduces a new playable faction, the Stoneborne, also known as Dwarves.
Legends of Callasia is a world conquest game inspired by classic turn-based strategy games like Civilization, Heroes of Might & Magic, and Risk. Players control heroes from their chosen faction, occupy territories, and control kingdoms in a tabletop-style map with bonus cards that may alter the course of battle. Its original simultaneous gameplay mechanic keeps games moving quickly, even in multiplayer mode while adding deep strategy elements.
Named Legends of Callasia: The Stoneborne, the expansion will include content based on players’ feedback: new heroes, cards, maps, and campaigns for the formerly non-playable faction, the Dwarves. The story of Stoneborne will follow their journey underground and their encounters with a new enemy, the Cavespawn.
By supporting the Kickstarter campaign, backers can pre-order copies of the main game and the expansion pack as well as have their names included in the game as heroes, territories, and kingdoms.
Boomzap has set a funding goal of $2,500 USD, and pledges start at $5. Those interested may download a free demo to the main game, which already includes a glimpse of some of the Dwarven heroes in campaign mode. Legends of Callasia is available for $24.99 USD on Steam, and will be coming soon to iPad and Android tablets. More details available at legends.boomzap.com.

Our Kickstarter has just ended. It may have been unsuccessful, but we still got Greenlit and the development of the game continues. We’re now preparing for our Steam release, and hopefully we can do an Early Access.
Since we launched our Kickstarter project last December 14, we managed to reach over $5,000 worth of pledges for Legends of Callasia. It’s better than our previous campaign, but with less than 2 days, it seems unlikely that we’ll reach our $25,000 funding goal. We sincerely thank you all for checking out the beta and supporting this game. It’s a shame Kickstarter didn’t seem to be a great venue for funding it – but we learned a great deal, and had fun.
On the bright side, we got Greenlit in just two weeks, and now working on our Steam submissions. Hopefully we can do an Early Access, and we wish to see you all in the multiplayer lobby when the game officially releases.
We sincerely appreciate all the feedback and we’ve been thrilled to meet our players! We also learned a lot – and I would be glad to share my opinions on this.
Aside from the new Mac build, we’ve also set-up Android set up over the holidays and will be available once tested by QA. And, because the community has shown an interest in it, we’re also working on a Linux version to be released later.
More people have also been checking out the game and posting their game play videos:
Thank you for all the press that we have been getting. Please keep your comments and suggestions coming, and hope you’ll continue to share our project to your friends! Again thank you to everyone who has been supporting Legends of Callasia!
