FAQ: Secret Unknown Stuff: Escape from Dulce - Co-op Sci-Fi Fun!
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Is Escape from Dulce a true co-op game?

Yes! Each player chooses one of the eight characters to play as, and all players will have to work together as a team to escape the base. No one has to play as the bad guys, as the bad guys run themselves. Every time your group enters a new room you’ll draw an encounter card. This card tells you how many and what kind of enemies you find in this room. Draw the appropriate enemy cards and put them on the Combat Tracker. Each enemy card is different and outlines that enemy’s attacks and who they will target for each attack. It could be the player with the highest accuracy, the lowest speed, or the highest armor rating. You’ll still need to roll for the enemies to see if they hit you, and move their pieces around the board, but nobody is in charge of them, and no one has to make decisions about who they will attack.

There’s a ton of components in this game. Will I be able to fit everything back in the box?

Yes! We’ve built seven prototypes of this final version of the game and we don’t have any problems fitting everything back in the box. All of the leg supports for the game boards will be a one-time assembly to cut down on wear and tear, but this also increases the amount of space they will take up in the box. Additional components might be added depending on the stretch goals we hit, and these will obviously take up additional space. While we intend to have all stretches ship in the box, it might be hard to fit those assembled legs back in with everything else. Our solution to this is a fold out cardboard insert that will fit around the inside edge of the bottom of the box and pop the top of box up higher. This insert will take the box depth from 5 inches up to 6.5 or 7 inches giving you plenty of extra room to fit everything back in there.

Will you be doing translations for the game?

We would love to, but need to see how many requests we get for these. If you would like the manual translated, please message us and let us know what language. Right now we’ve had a few request for French and Spanish. If we get enough requests and go over our goal, translating the game manual and making it available online, is something we will pursue.

I really want this game, but I can't afford it right now. What can I do?

Just pledge $1 before our campaign ends on April 1. As long as we hit our funding goal, you'll be given access to our pledge manager and will have the opportunity to adjust your pledge, and buy a copy of the game, after our campaign finishes. You will be notified of this from our pledge manager via email. Again, this will only be available if we hit our initial goal.

Will the Expansion pack include Minis?

Unfortunately, no minis will be included in the Expansion. They will be punchboard standees, but we are looking to get minis of Sir Reginald, Joey Fixit and the even the dreaded Umugatu down the line a bit.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
