Paypal Backing + Projected Schedule
Paypal Backing

A Paypal backer option is now available on the Paypal page of our website:

We trimmed and streamlined our reward tiers (with remaining quantities) into a compact list which should make accounting and fulfillment easier for everyone. We will keep everyone up to date as we continue toward our next stretch goals!

PLEASE NOTE: A good handful of Kickstarter backers had their pledges transactions fail. Please check your Kickstarter account and email backlog to see if you fall into this category. If you do, you will need to send a replacement pledge using our Paypal page if you wish to receive your rewards.

Projected Schedule

The following set of dates is subject to change, but should give everyone an idea of our general timeline for 2014:

January 20: Extended backing begins
March 7: Pre-Alpha Build Complete
June 6: Alpha Complete
June 27 - July 27: Alpha Tester Access
July 28: Extended backing ends; all backers receive Backer Surveys
July 28 - August 28: Early Access
August 29: Release on Windows/Mac/Linux
November 7: Release on Android and iPad

Once again, thanks to everyone for their amazing support. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we will be sure to keep you guys posted as we go.

The Mansion Lord Kickstarter Has Been Funded!
Release date: Mid 2014
Mansion Lord turns the traditional "whodunnit" murder mystery into an RPG/business sim game with a pixel art style.


Mansion Lord combines a murder mystery business sim with tile-based world building and turn-based RPG combat. Build your mansion tile-by-tile, invite unscrupulous aristocrats to dinner, and, with the aid of your hired detectives, capture them for bounties after they slay the other guests. You can level up your detectives, equip them with hundreds of different weapons and accessories, and teach them a variety of skills. All in the name of profit!

  • BUILDING SYSTEM: Create your mansion one piece at a time using a grid-based tile system. Place each individual object to gain vital room bonuses to attract more guests - and for your personal sense of interior decoration, of course!
  • TACTICAL TURN-BASED COMBAT: Claim bounty money by defeating the killers using a grid-based combat system. Use a variety of a special skills, joint combo attacks and maneuvering (side attacks and back attacks do matter!) to take them down.
  • SUSPECT DATABASE SYSTEM: Each killer has a unique set of likes and dislikes - tailor your rooms to suit their preferences to lure them to your mansion! Try to draw in the most elusive suspects to complete your "collection."
  • RPG CHARACTER UPGRADING: Improve your stable of hired detectives by earning XP, updating their equipment, teaching them new skills, increasing their happiness with gifts, and even building them their own bedroom!
  • ENDLESS ROGUELIKE ENCOUNTERS: If you want to take a break from management for some old-fashioned dungeon diving, try sending your detectives into the depths of the abandoned basement levels to clear out the ghouls below. The deeper you go, the bigger the dangers (and the rewards, of course)!
  • SOCIAL BOND SYSTEM: Detectives with strong relationships have special abilities in combat. Strengthen their social bonds by sending them out on "dates" every now and then. Who knows what might happen when their relationship maxes out?
  • 100% CHIPTUNE SOUNDTRACK: If it doesn't chirp, bleep, or bloop, you won't hear it in our music.
