Latest Updates from Our Project:

Coalitions still on schedule!
8 months ago – Sat, Feb 12, 2022 at 08:42:10 AM

Hello Everyone!


We’re back after a longer break than usual – but a break only in terms of updating you, not in terms of working on Coalitions! Since New Year, we’ve been focusing on two specific Coalitions-related tasks.

First, we’ve been setting up the pre-production timetable and making sure everything is well on track. We’re happy to report the plans remain on schedule, and the Coalitions Pledge Manager and Late Pledge will remain open until July 2022.

Second, we’ve been hard at work playtesting Raison d’Etat. While everything is in place in terms of mechanics and rules, we’re still figuring out the best way to set up each scenario so that every faction has the same chances of winning the game. The game dynamics are much different than in the core game – as they should be! – leading to some interesting situations, and the diplomatic challenges facing the players are definitely more pronounced!

Here are some pics from our latest playtests:


From Napoleonic wars to the Vietnam war – Purple Haze’s campaign is about to end

In the meantime, a different part of our team has been working on another game that may pique your interest: Purple Haze. It’s not an illustrious and grand area control struggle for the domination of an entire continent, quite the opposite – it’s a very personal, thematic, and down-to-earth Vietnam War game. Atmospheric, narrative-heavy, dark, and gritty, with lots of twists.

With over 2100 backers and 430% of the initial pledge level reached, the Purple Haze’s campaign is just four days away from the finish line. We’ve already unveiled all four full expansions, including two that are entirely free to all base pledge backers!

If you’re interested in Purple Haze, you can check out the campaign’s page right here:

A new year for Coalitions
9 months ago – Fri, Dec 24, 2021 at 01:03:51 AM

Hello Everyone!


We end 2021 – the year in which you helped make Coalitions a reality – on a positive note. We’re moving closer to the completion of the project, even though the development of Coalitions’ expansions will continue into the New Year. We’re taking a two-week break for the Holidays and New Year now to recharge our batteries, but after that we’ll once again go into high gear, testing new ideas and options, including those proposed by some of you, and balancing the gameplay.

The pre-production plans remain on schedule, and the Coalitions Pledge Manager and Late Pledge will remain open until July 2022.


Stay safe, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
Srdjan, Adrian & PHALANX Team

Playtesting, playtesting, and even more playtesting!
10 months ago – Tue, Nov 16, 2021 at 06:51:05 PM

Hello Everyone!


The Coalitions development frenzy at our office continues! While we're done with the core game and nearly finished with Ancien Régime, we still have to give more playtesting love to the Raison d'Etat and Realpolitik expansions. That's why we decided to extend their development until the end of the year. It doesn’t affect Coalitions, though, only our future projects – the start of Coalitions pre-production is still scheduled for January 2022.

The Coalitions Pledge Manager and Late Pledge will remain open until July 2022. You can manage your pledge there, or pre-order the game, including its expansions and add-ons.

If you have any problems logging into your BackerKit account or you still haven’t received the BackerKit invitation for Coalitions Pledge Manager, please contact us using the Kickstarter private message or simply at customercare@phalanxgames.co.uk. We’ll try to help resolve any issues you may have.


Stay safe!

Development & playtesting kicked into high gear!
12 months ago – Thu, Oct 07, 2021 at 03:38:49 AM

Hello Everyone,


We hope your experience with the Coalitions pledge manager has been a positive one and you’ve managed to complete the process without any issues along the way. But if you need any help with the pledge manager, don’t hesitate to write to us at customercare@phalanxgames.co.uk.

On the development front, the work on Ancien Regime is progressing, though we’re not yet finished with that expansion. As a matter of fact, there’s still a lot of work to be done on all three expansions, a bit more playtesting than we anticipated to conduct in the coming months, and tweaking the gameplay so it’s just perfect and well balanced (you know, as all things should be) – but don’t worry, that won’t impact the production dates.

And here are some photos straight from our PHALANX gamesroom:

Take care and stay safe!

Pledge Manager and Late Pledge are open!
about 1 year ago – Wed, Aug 25, 2021 at 05:06:25 AM

Hello Everyone,


We hope you’re enjoying the summer and you’re are eagerly waiting for a new update about Coalitions. Without further ado, we’ve just opened the BackerKit pledge manager for Coalitions!

Some of you may have received the invitation to the pledge manager a few days ago, just before the weekend, when we were testing the BackerKit page for Coalitions, but most of you should’ve received it today. Please check your e-mail box, including the spam folder, for an e-mail from PHALANX or BackerKit concerning Coalitions. If you can’t find any such e-mail, please write to us at customercare@phalanxgames.co.uk.

You can also receive the invitation by inputting your e-mail (the one you had at the end of our Kickstarter campaign) on this website:

https://coalitions.backerkit.com

If you do that, you’ll immediately receive the invitation.


What to do in the pledge manager

1. The first thing you have to do, is to choose the language edition of the game and its expansions. Each and every copy of Coalitions core game and each expansion will come in the same language edition.

After choosing the language, you’ll receive a note informing you that the price of the two-wave delivery will be calculated depending on the destination country. It will also be recalculated every time any change in the contents of your order is made. If the shipping cost of your order equals £0, it means you haven’t chosen the destination country yet.

2. Then you can pick the expansions and add-ons you want to buy. You can also choose to take an additional pledge or additional pledges, including additional expansions and add-ons. Keep in mind, however, that the shipping cost is dependent upon the number of bought expansions, and that you can change the contents of the order at any time, until the closing of the pledge manager in July 2022.

Don't forget – each and every backer with at least a Core Pledge will get the Ancien Regime Expansion for free, so you don’t have to add that expansion to your order.

3. After that, you have to input your address data. Please remember to add a telephone number for the courier. At this point, we’d like to remind you that we’ll be using a regular courier service for the shipment of Coalitions, and that means we can’t send the game to any PO BOX, military base, or any other location to which the couriers have no access.

4. In the “Confirm” section, you’ll be presented with the summary of your order. There you’ll be able to see the cost of the entire order, including the shipping cost. You’ll also be able to input your credit card number. You can change the credit card or address information at any time, until the closing of the pledge manager in July 2022.


>>FAQ<<

How to switch pledge levels?

After completing the order, you’ll be able to change the pledge level at any time. You can do it by clicking on the "Your Pledge Level" button in the BackerKit console at the top of the page. After clicking on the button, you’ll get your pledge information, and in the upper right corner, you’ll see a button called “Switch Pledge Levels?” which will allow you to change the pledge level.

How to choose a language edition for the expansions?

Both the core game and the expansions will come in the language you chose in step 1.


Where can I buy a group pledge?

The group pledge is no longer available. If you’re interested in buying more copies of Coalitions, simply add the number of copies you’d like to buy in the Add-ons section. This way you’ll save on shipping.


I’ve pledged £1/$1. What now?

Thank you for your support and for believing in the project. You’ve received an invitation to the pledge manager, and you can buy the Kickstarter Exclusives in the Add-ons section. As we’ve mentioned in the campaign’s FAQ, you won’t receive the free expansions and add-ons that come with each core game pledge, but you can still buy them in the pledge manager.



Stay safe!
