What is it?

Bristol based Thunder Vaults Ltd have created a brand new sci-fi graphic novel, which follows a dystopian multiracial humanitarian group as they venture out into the dangerous unknowns of space to resettle the refugees of their home planet, Keleressa. It’s an exciting sounding start for the Defection series, which stems from their board game of the same name. You can reach out to the creators of this Kickstarter and the game via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the ThunderVaults website.

How much were they looking for and what are the rewards for backers?

They only needed £600 to be backed and they passed that a little bit after their first day of their campaign being live on Kickstarter. I too backed it, as it looks fantastic and the story sounds intriguing. Still, because they’ve already succeeded, you can now be sure to get the product by backing them with one of the below.

As for the rewards, they’re pretty modest, with only one big, but limited reward:
