CMON Time Machine Revisits Past Kickstarted Games

Tabletop gaming industry giant CMON is offering a new Kickstarter project. In addition to copies of past successfully-crowdfunded games, backers will fund and acquire original mood soundtracks and digital art books.

Included in the new crowdfunding campaign are immersive soundtracks for Rising Sun, Zombicide: Green Horde, and HATE. Backers can also claim a new digital art book for Zombicide: Green Horde (with Black Plague content). Digital versions of the Rising Sun and HATE art books also made their way into the bundle.

 

The CMON Time Machine campaign does not offer stretch goals or new optional buys. Backers, however, gain access to the Time Vault, allowing them to access past exclusives from other Kickstarters. Some past exclusives come from Arcadia Quest, The World of SMOG: Rise of Moloch, Zombicide: Black Plague, and Blood Rage. New backers with a $1 backing donation can use the Pledge Manager to purchase these previous Kickstarter exclusives 48 hours after backers with one of the higher-tier pledges. The Asia-Only pledges have their own Time Vault with different items in different quantities from the US Time Vault.

Some of the games have sold out, but at the time of writing, there are still some good games at decent prices to be had here. HATE is available for $264, and Zombicide: Green Horde is available for $240. If you were hoping to grab a full copy of Rising Sun through this, however, you have sadly already missed your chance.

 

Take note, however, that shipping costs may vary based on location and pledge. CMON will collect any incurred shipping fees via their pledge manager at the conclusion of the campaign via Paypal. Excepting the Asia-Only pledges, all products will ship from the USA. This campaign ends Sunday, September 29 at 9:00 PM EST. At the time of writing, the campaign is over 6500% funded.

 

Quick Take

Soundtracks are really fun collectibles. They're perfect for setting the mood without having to search for any music yourself. It was one of my favorite parts about Flying Frog Games' Last Night on Earth. If you missed out on any exclusives from CMON, or you just want something new to jam to, now is as good a time as any to pick them up.
