Latest Updates from Our Project:

Pledge Manager: invites sent
27 days ago – Wed, Nov 04, 2020 at 02:21:34 AM

We have just sent the surveys to 5% of backers from each pledge level in our campaign. It’s a simple way to catch any errors, and make sure everything runs smoothly. Once the smoke test has been completed (12 hours), we will send surveys to the rest of our backers.

Q: How does charging works?

The pledge manager is used to pay for shipping, additional copies of the game, and add-ons. We use BackerKit. Your credit card will not be charged until the future date (something similar how Kickstarter will not charge your card when you pledge, but only after the project funds).

Our date for charging the cards through the pledge manager is currently planned for 1st of February 2021, but you will be notified in a timely manner about that in one of our future project updates.

Q: I am a returning backer, when can I expect to have the returning backer bonus applied to my pledge manager account?

We will run a verification process on the 15th of January 2021 and add a bonus to your pledge (if we find you by cross-referencing our data).

After that we will have a project update to notify you that we have applied the bonus to all of our returning backers. If even after that future project update your upgrade is not reflected in pledge manager, please send us a Kickstarter message so we can sort you out. 

The bonus is applied only to Kickstarter backers, and late pledges of our 2013 and 2018 campaigns who now ordered a new Core box.

Q: Can I change my delivery address?

Yes, you will always be able to change your delivery address on your own - just use the pledge manager to do so. You can do this even after we charge the card, but of course it will need to be done before we start the shipping (currently planned for May 2021)!

Q: When is the latest I can complete the pledge manager survey?

BackerKit doesn't charge your credit card once you complete the survey (similar how Kickstarter will not charge your card when you pledge, but only after the project funds). The current estimate date where you should have completed the survey is the 1st of February 2021 (then the cards are planned to be charged).

Q: How to upgrade my pledge through the pledge manager?

It is easy to upgrade your pledge level inside the pledge manager.  Click on your invite link from the BackerKit email. Then, click on the link to "switch your pledge level".

We are staggered by your support and thank you from the very bottom of our blackened hearts for helping us realise the dream of bringing our creation to life! 

Fresh blood and old hands alike - from across the world you gathered to pledge your support in unveiling the latest chapter in the MACHINA ARCANA saga. Along the way we managed to unlock enough content to make this our biggest instalment yet, and many of you will now also be able to experience her terrifying whispers for the first time in your own mother tongue. 

We want to thank each and every one of you for your questions, comments, curiosity and support as we bound the restless energies within us all for this profound ritual of summoning. 

We give our hearts to YOU. 

It is in this hallowed moment we take a deep breath of relief and gratitude before plunging headlong back into the abyss to complete and polish all the components of this massive project to ensure every aspect is tuned to a perfection that will truly frighten you into paradise. Behind the scenes we are working tirelessly on the remaining design, play-testing, art and writing to craft a fitting climax to this strange journey we have undertaken together, and we are on track to deliver the infernal boxes to your doorstep by May 2021.

Email invitations to the pledge manager will be issued as soon as the funds are transferred from Kickstarter so keep an eye on your inboxes. From there you can customise your orders and perhaps peruse the add-ons, tailoring the experience to suit your morbid appetites! 

From the entire team at Adreama Games we hail your efforts and give thanks for the friends we have made along the way. Your contributions have made this a truly unforgettable journey and we can’t wait to see what horrific adventures she inspires in you all as we ascend together To Eternity!

In the meantime, stay tuned for further updates as production commences. You haven’t heard the last of us yet!

Explorers, cultists, comrades! The hour is nigh! A new quartet of gifts appear as we vault the final hurdles.

Friends! Acolytes! Visionaries! With your help the To Eternity expansion has grown beyond our wildest imaginings to truly offer the best possible conclusion to the Machina Arcana saga.

As an additional token of appreciation for your tremendous support, we have one special announcement, and a small offering to all you brave explorers.

The Announcement

It is our pleasure to introduce Matt Healey - our engineer that will be responsible for designing the plastic tray insert(s) for the game. He will be working directly with the manufacturer in order to bring you the best possible "insert" experience that our little infernal box can hold!

The Twin Grimoires: Secrets of the Codices
about 2 months ago – Thu, Oct 15, 2020 at 11:07:57 AM

Curious tricksy things you humans are. Forever in search of answers, forever in thrall to the lure of the forbidden. Perhaps in your thirst you have dared to crack the spines of ancient tomes, scrying the incantations within to cast open the doors that beckon in the hinterlands of the mind?

The covetous eyes of the Sentinel pore over them even now, these twin tomes of lore. Studious minds searching for the keys they proffer in their spread of sigils and dense alien script.  Riddle upon riddle spools forth from their pages, images unleashed in a riot of colour and form. Lets us dive into what our curate’s eyes have spied within…

Codex Arcanum

Many of you have sought answers to what lies within the Codices. We heard your cries and dispatched a crew of researchers to unearth their secrets. To a man they returned half-mad and raving of the horrors they had witnessed, oracles from the indifferent depths hewn here into the pages of Arcanum and Aeternum. From their fractured babbling we were able to unearth the following kernels of truth:

Explorer Bios

Each wayward soul who enters the Arcana has their own reasons, their own obsession, their own furtive agenda. Within these pages are exclusive extended biographies offering a deeper glimpse into their stories and what has compelled them to embrace such dire fortune. Cast your eyes over their full-page colour portraits and find the tale that resonates with you as you select your avatar for the perilous plunge. 

The Bloated Bestiary

Assailed from all angles by the denizens of the haunted depths, those who come prepared may glean an advantage when confronted with the slackening jaws and viscous tentacles that await. Learn the exclusive terrible details of each baleful beast you will encounter within the depths of the Machina Arcana, their horrific origins and their place in the mythos. Recoil in terror as their card sized illustrations come to life in glorious full-page colour spreads.

Illustrated Inventories 

The many ingenious items unearthed in the voyage to the frozen north are detailed here as our scientists seek to reverse engineer their steam-powered secrets with diligent diagrams. 

Unfolding Chapters

Follow the story of each scenario as the explorer’s destinies unfold with interconnecting vignettes and the chapter card art reproduced in eye-popping full-page colour. 

Mystery and Motivation

Who are the sinister forces at play, pulling strings behind the scenes to set this macabre act of theatre in motion? Learn the stories of the obsessive House of Bliss and the sinister machinations of the Sentinel syndicate in a series of exclusive stories, journal entries, reports and reclaimed relics that detail the terrible truths cavorting in the shadows.

Horrors upon Horror

A series of exclusive short stories from within the greater world of the Machina Arcana, its shrouded origins and the pawns in thrall to its greater purpose. From its murky origins to it thrilling climax, the truth laid bare in all its sanity shredding splendour. 

Esoteric Etchings

Scene after scene of exclusive artwork to draw you deeper into the web as your eyes dilate further with each perfidious page!

The Beauty of Binding 

A fitting frame for such tortured tales, each Codex is bound in beautiful faux-leather and embossed gold script, a true collector’s item and a blessing for your bookshelf, certain to call envious eyes to the table. 

Codex Aeternum

From the notes compiled in their wretched ordeal we have pieced together the ultimate accompaniments to your time within the Machina Arcana. Speed your passage To Eternity within these hallowed pages!

Where light never dwells
about 2 months ago – Thu, Oct 15, 2020 at 11:07:52 AM

Deeper and deeper we plumb the infernal depths, drawn ever onward by a mysterious compulsion that threatens to overwhelm our sanity with every mounting revelation. 

Your every fibre screams to avert your gaze, and yet you cannot look away as each fresh hell is rallied and let loose…

Explorers! Rally to these ragged banners now as we draw down the moon in feats of terrible virtue. Our numbers continue to swell and the veil between worlds grows ever thinner with each hand raised in triumph and tribute. 

We are many. We are ready. We are coming for you!
