Waldo's Weekly - Wyrd's Gen Con Wrap Up


Recommended Posts

Hey Wyrdos!

Thank you all for participating in this first ever virtual Gen Con! Waldo may have been chewing on some wires over here, but you stuck with us and helped make this a great time. It was fun talking with you, answering questions, and giving previews about upcoming content. We still haven’t shown everything off, so keep your eyes on Waldo for future teases and news about our games!

Did you miss any of our events during last weekend? Fret not! We have compiled a list of links for you to browse and catch up on all the awesome things we did.

What better way to start off than with a video previewing a new Explorer’s Society model being sculpted? Take a look at the Bellhop Porter!

Ready for the kick-off event? Watch the designers preview content for The Other Side, Through the Breach, and Malifaux:

Finish up with a second sculpting video for Fat Cap, an alt Metal Golem:

Then, listen to Craig Shipman from Third Floor Wars sit down with the Malifaux design team and ask them some questions. Ever wondered how Malifaux’s eighth Faction, the Explorer’s Society, came to be? Want to see previews of another new Explorer’s Society Master, English Ivan? Sit down with us here:


Remember Lord Cooper and his crew of mighty Apex hunters we showed off? Well, they’re back in this 50 Soulstone game played by the gents at Third Floor Wars. Lord Cooper’s Apex keyword goes against Von Schill’s Freikorps in this first ever public game of the Explorer’s Society! Who will be the most dangerous hunter? Place your bets and check it out here:

Have you been curious about Through the Breach? If so, catch up with Dead Aussie Gamer and his band of Fated as they set out to a small contract town hosting a no-holds-barred music festival. If only we knew about an infamous band in Malifaux that might want to crash the show… It doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to Through the Breach or a player with dozens of One Shots under your belt; Dead Aussie puts on a great show! Watch the chaos unfold here:

If you didn’t get a chance to snag this year’s Nightmare box, Malifaux 1988, don’t worry! Gumdrop and her crew will be available again during our Black Friday sale in November, along with Fat Cap: a Metal Golem kitted out in cyberpunk style.


That’s it for this week, Wyrdos! We want to thank all of the teams and individuals that helped us put on these events; they have lots of content to keep whetting your appetite for everything Wyrd, so go check them out:

Just wanted to say thanks for the effort that was put in to this by the Wyrd crew and their partners, I follow several mini games and your virtual Gencon efforts were the best by far.  As someone from Australia it was great to be able to get excited and participate in it at the same time as everyone else. 

I hope it's something that you consider doing a little more of in the future even when things return to normal.
