Welcome to the Fifth Dimension
I can’t say if it’s my idealistic side, but for a long time, I dreamed of playing a game where all types of gamer would compete and have fun together. Pretty hard to find, as the logical approach for any game publisher is to have a target audience, with game mechanics that appeal solely to specific type of players/consumers. The question was: is it really impossible to make a game with mechanics that can appeal to every individual or could it be that it would take too long to create such a game that developers just didn’t bother to go toward that path?
As board games or card games are a great platform to spend time with friends and family, I found it disappointing that we were always bound to compromise around a certain type of game, leaving people around the table not happy with the choice being made but who played just to not be excluded. As an avid board game, card game and video game player, I figured that if someone in my position didn’t care to try to make a game that would unite all types of gamer around the same table, who would? It was with that goal in mind that my pilgrimage started…
10 years of development to bring you the most unifying game ever created. Do you want to warp into the VDimension?
20 000 hours.
That's the time spent creating VDimension.
Passionate about all types of games and members of Ubisoft creation team on multi-players maps of Far Cry, game balance on King Kong and many other independant projects, I secretly built a laboratory in which I was able to create the ultimate board game: VDimension. 10 years and over 200 players in focus groups later, I offer you my game in a home made, printable version. Whether you are a casual board game player or a fan of franchise such as Magic the Gathering, Settlers of Catan or even Monopoly, you will love this game for these 5 reasons:
- Its versatility: You can win the match from 5 different ways
- Its complexed simplicity: You will feel like climbing mount Everest, but without losing your breath
- Its replayability: 20 000 hours and still always a different ending!
- Its game balance : all the cards you play has the potential to lead you to victory
- In addition, since I wanted VDimension to be played everywhere as quickly as possible, I offer you the whole game at the most affordable price, into a digital version that you can print and assemble yourself at home, IKEA style.
VDimension combines the best elements of board games and card games all in one. A game that unites all gamer types around the same table; casual, experienced or just curious. With 5 different victory conditions, 5 realms (+4 in construction) all offering a different playstyle, you will be able to discover a new way to play a board game: your own!
What are the funds for?
Once we reach 10 000 $, we will be able to print 250 arsenals of 50 high quality cards, 2,5” x 3,5” including a box in the colors of the realm. These arsenals will be offered at cost price of 10$ CDN (+ applicable taxes and shipping), to all of those who have supported the Ulule campaign (You will also be able to choose your realms from Indigofera (Life), Xardion (Death), Absolum (Order) et Anarkya (Chaos)). If the demand is higher, we will be able to print more arsenals so no worries; there will be plenty for all the citizens of the Dimension!
Once we reach 20 000 $, we will be able to print 100 physical boards quad-folded with all their elements, and coming into an 18” x 18” box. These will be offered at cost price of 50$ CDN (+ applicable taxes and shipping), to all of those who have supported the Ulule campaign. Again, if the demand is higher, we will be able to print more games, so no citizen of the Dimension will be left behind!
About the project owner
From my young age, when people were asking me what I wanted to do in life, my answer was: Play games. When I became a teenager, I found a passion in actually make them. So I started building a pen & paper and was offering my friends to play in that universe I was improvising as they were making new choices. People grew excited and soon enough, I didn't have enough spare time in my life to make everybody play. This is when I realized that I had a talent to make people resonate into the fantastic universe I had created. From that moment on, I didn't want to do anything else with my life aside from bringing the rest of the universe into mine.
25 years later, I stand before you with my lifetime accomplishment; VDimension. A game that doesn't target gamers only, but every human being who likes to be brought around a table with pleasant people to have an epic time.The avatars and minions of VDimension are all based on the story I created during my 15 years of pen & paper. The essence of each card you will discover are the fruit of the prowess and historical gaffs made by all the characters populating that universe!
Having invested my soul into this project, I incarnate VDimension. The board on which you will play and the cards you will manipulate are the extension of my interpretation of the universe at every level. All I am lies in that box, ivory tower in which you will also take place.
So come resonate with us, and unite the world around the same table!
