Build your very own thriving jungle by discovering various wild animals, insects, and plants. 

’Life of the Amazonia’ is a medium-weight strategic meeple placing game that combines bag building and pattern building. In Life of the Amazonia, you’ll be invited to the lush jungle of the Amazon to join in the mission of building an ecologically rich jungle. The beautiful animals of the Amazon will guide you through the deep puzzles and strategic experience. After a pleasantly challenging game, you’ll find that there is a beautiful jungle created in front of each player.







“I absolutely love this game, love looking at it, it just creates such an excellent table presence. It is not just window dressing, this is an excellent game going on underneath it as well.” - Rahdo Runs Through

Animals and plants in the Amazon each have their own unique characteristics. Some will provide Environmental Points based on how many trees are in their habitat, how many different animals surround them, or how large their habitat is. Know the characteristics of each Animal and place them in the most optimal location.



VARYING WAYS TO SCORE

Pledge Levels






Why Kickstarter

1. Life of the Amazonia will be offered up to 25% off MSRP. 

2. Kickstarter Backers will receive a free Promo Pack that will be valued for more than $12 retail. The Promo Pack will consist of items unlocked from Stretch Goals. The more to join in on our campaign, the richer each Promo Pack will become. So let’s work together to unlock every goal! 

3. The Promo Pack will include Kickstarter Exclusive Items. The KS Exclusive Items will NOT be available for purchase anywhere other than through this Kickstarter campaign.

     

  • Though, the remaining stock after Kickstarter fulfillment may be temporarily available for purchase directly through Bad Comet.  
  •  

  • Retail stores that have pledged through this Kickstarter Campaign will also be allowed to sell copies that include the KS Exclusive items to the public.

4. Kickstarter Backers will be the first to receive their copies. 

5. Retail sales will not be available in certain regions, therefore, depending on your region, purchasing this title may not be possible aside from this campaign.  

6. Bad Comet Games is comprised of a small group of individuals. Unlike many bigger publishers who are able to publish straight to retail, our small team needs the help of supporters to produce and release our creations. We’ve built a great community of Supporters through our previous Kickstarter projects and through the love and support we were able to bring Shaolia and Wild: Serengeti to life. The same goes for our new project, Life of the Amazonia. The team's dedication and passion to making this project a reality can only reach so far without the support from our backers. Kickstarter creates the chance for our projects to see light!

7. Through our last campaign, we were fortunate to be amidst a valuable experience. Producing a game with our Backers to truly make it a game developed by everyone. Through the many ideas and feedback from so many of our passionate Backers, we were able to further develop the game. During the Life of the Amazonia campaign, we plan to actively collect and discuss Backer’s ideas through votes and/or comments. For our team, Backers are not just customers who purchase our games, but partners who become the source of inspiration and development. We want to make sure your involvement matters in creating this project! So, join us, and become a part of our community where we’ll do this together.
