William and Jeremy have spent 12 years designing and developing Castle!, a set of stackable, textured castles and buildings for 25-28mm scale tabletop gaming, a lego-like modular construction system. Each piece is 3D printed and can fit into any other pieces. It stacks and unstacks, you can easily remove the various floors of your Castle! and put them back on as you move up and down during gameplay.
After 12 years' hard work William and Jeremy bring their Castle! to Kickstarter. They need a minimum of $20,000 to produce the first Castle! kits, see the pictures below, which is a foot long wall with battlements and a door, and a double foot wall with two doors on either end.
But why Castle!? Though the designers focus on modularity it doesn't mean you have to build just one sort of structure. Actually you can build towers, outposts, courtyards or even just wall to fight over, anything you can imagine. Besides that Castle! is fully textured on all the surfaces you'll see when you've got something built. It's got a look and feel that makes you think of real stone.
Here is what you get for your donation:
What can you expect from Castle! after the inital 20,0000 funding? There will be more kits to be produced, "more crucial sections of Castle! that Master Duelington, the master builder of the village, can be invented and built to protect the village from the impending attack." There will also be a patent-pending sytem, as they said, "allows limitless possibility".
