Zenit Miniatures Working on New Edition of Yokai Quest



Yokai Quest is one of those games that didn’t have much luck. He also almost sent Zenit Miniatures under. Hopefully, however, it will become a winner soon, as Zenit is looking to release a new version of the game soon.

According to the message:

Hello everyone.

I am Ramón Pérez from RamPer Design. I am the creator of Takkure, the cyberpunk rugby game launched in November on Kickstarter and published by Zenit miniatures.

During these last months, I had a permanent contact with Zenit because they are at the same time producer and in charge of the logistics of my game. I visited their workshop twice. During one of my visits, they told me about all the issues that arose during the Yokai Quest project. I mean internal issues: The issues you saw during the Kickstarter campaign were already known to me as I myself am a funder of Yokai Quest.

I have to say that for what I already knew and for what I was able to verify myself, this project could have caused the bankruptcy of the company. And it was very close. While some things did not turn out the way they should, the great effort put into completing the project cannot be denied.

At one of our meetings we had a long conversation about the game. One of the biggest issues now is the large amount of stock that was left in their magazine, here you can see some of it:

We have come to the conclusion that in order to bring all this stock to the market, the game has to be renewed. Since I own a copy, I suggested that they craft a complete remake of the game using all of the original components but with a whole new set of rules. A new game with the same materials. Keep in mind that economically and logistically it would be impossible to produce new components.

That’s it: with just a new rulebook that turns Yokai Quest into a fast and interesting game.

We have been working on it for some time and we are already testing the game and revising the texts in Spanish. The purpose of this message is to introduce myself and tell you that you will soon have a new version of the game to try it out.

I have to say that Zenit and I find it mandatory to grant access to the original funders to the new rulebook. In addition, we want to be transparent during this process so that you can give us your opinion, this way the game will be as good as possible.

This is why the rulebook will be available for free download in PDF format. Not only the rulebook, we will give you access to the storybook (the new rules will have a strong narrative element) and all content unlocked during the campaign (we will add additional missions and alternate storylines if the campaign unfolds. ) good).

We hope you enjoy it and think most of you will want a printed copy. We will create an engagement with the printed rulebook for a good price so you can get yours if you want.

As a game developer this is a huge challenge: not only to develop a new game without being able to change a single element, but also for the whole background of the project. We’ve been working on this for a while and we hope you like what you see and my way of working and that all of this will encourage you to try the new version and give us your feedback.
