Hall or Nothing Productions: Shadows of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game

10th May 2019 
Worldwide demand led to a fifth Kickstarter launch for Hall or Nothing Productions. Overwhelming success has resulted in a sequel to the fantasy adventure card game.

Launched on Kickstarter in March 2019 Shadows of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game, is the sequel and stand-alone expansion to Gloom of Kilforth by family-run Hall or Nothing Productions. Funded in just 42 minutes Shadows of Kilforth has already attracted over 3,000 loyal fans, and is now available to all for late pledges through BackerKit here.

From the award-winning team behind Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game - the sell-out game from Tabletop Gaming Magazine's Top Ten Games of the Year - and 1066, Tears to Many Mothers - the historical card game which was runner up for the Golden Geek and Award Origins Awards - Shadows of Kilforth is the ultimate RPG-style adventure experience in a dark world of Gothic high fantasy.

Gloom of Kilforth, and its three expansions, have now raised more than half a million pounds from just two print runs, with more than 10,000 copies sold around the world.

Director and founder of Hall or Nothing Productions, Tristan Hall, said: “It was a no-brainer. After the overwhelming success of Gloom of Kilforth, we listened to the feedback and suggestions from our backers and decided we had to create a sequel.

“Since 2015 we've gone from fulfilling the dream of having a single game design realised and produced, to funding multiple games, with even more exciting and beautiful projects in the pipeline for the future.

“One of the fantastic elements for our backers is that the new game, Shadows of Kilforth, is compatible with the original game Gloom of Kilforth. New players can enter the world of Kilforth fresh through either game, and existing backers are able to breathe even more life into their game world by discovering brand new adventures. This all results in plenty of rich experiences in a new area of the same fantasy world.”

Co-director, Francesca Hall added:  “The artwork for Shadows of Kilforth is nothing short of extraordinary, with over 250 unique images in the base game alone. Our artists have worked tirelessly to create the ultimate in fantasy art visuals. It’s truly breathtaking. There will also be new incredibly illustrated individual playmats that can be used with either game too.”

Shadows of Kilforth sees 1-4 players, working individually or together, assume the roles of heroes on a journey through a dark world of magic and peril. They will visit dangerous places, meet strange people, and defeat powerful enemies in their mission to discover mysterious artefacts and mystical spells. Each player follows their hero’s tale, an epic saga, from modest beginnings through to a climactic battle that will decide the fate of the world.

A company that has scaled significantly since its launch, Hall or Nothing Productions now collaborates with a team of artists, designers, and copywriters to maintain and deliver the highest standards of quality tabletop gaming, and is a proud sponsor of UK Games Expo.
