The last two days were busy: Yesterday, two mail vans came by to pick up a total of 861 USA-bound packages, and today I spent three hours processing the remaining 302 international packages at the post office (thanks to Wanda, the counter clerk who helped me with this mountain of mail). I left the post office with a receipt that was 26 ft (8 m) long, and an international postage bill of $4,927.95.
A few VERY important things for backers:
- Those who are receiving Soundtrack Anthology album downloads (including all Limited Edition recipients) should check their package carefully for tiny download code slips (pictured below). And please follow the instructions on the slip. If you try to download the album now (before October 31), you will download nothing and waste your code! We want you to hear the interactive music in the game before you hear any linear versions.
- Packages were sent Priority Mail and should arrive in 2-3 days for US residents and 6-10 days for international residents. Some people got theirs today!
- For the 44 people who are getting just the photocopied memos: we haven't forgotten about you. You'll receive a shipping-info survey soon, and your memos will be sent out in a few weeks.
Now, some additional news:
For those of you who missed out on the campaign, the regular edition of the game is available for mail order purchase right now: http://diamondtrustgame.com/buy.php
And if you're going to PAX Prime this weekend in Seattle, Tom and I will see you there as part of the Kickstarter games program. We'll be selling copies of Diamond Trust at our table in the Kickstarter room at the Grand Hyatt (Building E), so stop by, try the game, and save on shipping. If you bring your DS, we'll even be able to upload the game to you wirelessly (it will remain playable on your DS until you power-off).
