The Kickstarter campaign is over and games have shipped to backers, but you can still bring these cute and mildly dangerous pets in your home! Manage your dice workers and the chaos in this light engine builder.

Greetings Petshoppers!

I am reaching out to ask for your input on the next Alien Petshop offering.

What do you want to see for this game in the future? 

Do you want more cute and dangerous pets?

 (actual art. yay!!)

OR


Cute and dangerous Robot pets?

robo-pets?

(AI art renders, not actual designs)

Please leave comments below!

If you'd like to participate more directly in the design of the expansion, consider joining the Ogre Crossing Games Discord!

https://discord.gg/VeUBAPxj

That is where we playtest, discuss game ideas, and have a jolly good time. We try to keep it "safe for work" there too!

--

Even though design work is happening now on the expansion, you can get more alien pets now!

If you missed this announcement in the previous update, here it is again:

For Petshoppers in the US who missed out on the extra pet cards included in the 5th-player add-on, we have those cards available again as a pet expansion pack for $9.99 plus shipping.

Here is link to the Backerkit shop: https://alien-petshop.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

I am actively looking at non-US options too, so stay tuned for that announcement.


Thank you everyone!

Best regards,

-Greg

Greetings Petshoppers!

For Petshoppers in the US who missed out on the extra pet cards included in the 5th-player add-on, we have those cards available again as a pet expansion pack for $9.99 plus shipping. 

 Here is link to the Backerkit shop: https://alien-petshop.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

The 10 card pack includes 8 new pets, 1 starter-pet, and one reference card. 

Here is an image of the included pets:

If you already have the 5th player addon (which is no longer available), then you already have these pets.

Base games are also available for ordering for your friends and family for the holidays! What better gift  than cute and mildly dangerous pets!

Note that we are currently only shipping to the US, but based on the success of that we might make items available to other regions too.

Finally, I have made a Spanish-language version of the rulebook PDF available. Its available here:

Greetings Petshoppers!

After over a year of waiting, Alien Petshop has arrived at 90% of backers, including a few retailers! (O Canada your Alien Petshops have shipped and are arriving soon!)

The outpouring of love for these cute and mildly dangerous pets has been amazing!  Thank you for sharing your heartwarming experiences with Petshop. I have tried to craft the highest quality game and a fun experience.  It's so much work for a single person to create a game including artwork, design, and publishing.  I know Alien Petshop isn't perfect and it can't be all things to all people, but its my first published game and I am so very proud of it. This game would not exist without my playtesters, my supportive family, and for you.

Thank you for your trust and patience!

And with that I leave you this teaser....




If you want to know what that card is for, you can join the Ogre Crossing Games Discord  Ogre Crossing Discord . I'll announce more details soon in an update. If you join the Discord, maybe we can play Alien Petshop together via Tabletop Simulator so if you want to play against me sometime, join up!

Best regards,

-Greg

EU games will be sent from Surfin Meeple, our fulfillment partner for the EU, starting Thursday the 22nd. You should have received your tracking number in email.  Add a few days for your local courier delivery and you all should start cracking open Alien Petshop in a week or so.

For the EU shipping issues, you can contact me at greg@ogrecrossinggames.com

For the US and CA, shipping will begin from Bridge on Monday the 26th. Games should arrive to backers in the US and Canada within 5 to 10 days.

That leaves the UK. I am waiting for a shipping date from Zatu. I will send out a update when that happens, but I expect it to be very soon.

If you want to share your positive experience with me via facebook I'd love to see unboxing pics and tableshots of you enjoying Alien Petshop!  I will send a promo pack of 9 pet cards to a few folks that share the best Alien Petshop pics! (if you have the 5th player expansion, it's the same cards)

Greetings petshoppers!

I have some good news!  Games have reached the fulfillment hubs for the US, the EU, and Asia.  This means games will be shipping via local couriers and arriving in the next 2 weeks. 

The exception to this is the UK, unfortunately where BREXIT continues to provide additional hurdles. We are still hoping to get games to the UK hub soon, but I'll send out a separate update for that.

If you're friends want to pick up their own copy, some LFGS will carry Alien Petshop.  They can also visit https://alien-petshop.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders (US only for now)
