So a lot of people have started to receive their copies of Technoir and other rewards. It's great to see all the love the game is getting!
If you haven't received your copy and goodies yet, don't panic. I haven't shipped all the packages yet. My shipping operation has encountered a few delays.
• I had ordered padded mailers that were too small for the book (technically you could shove a book into them, but I didn't want to risk bending any corners). But I have new padded mailers now, so we're back in business.
• It's taken longer than I expected to sign copies and fill out customs forms. This mostly a one-person operation. And though I've been fortunate to have some friends help with some of the order packing, no one else can sign your books obviously.
• The house where I live and work was burglarized yesterday. It doesn't look like they took any of the books or Kickstarter rewards fortunately. One ready-to-ship package was torn open and the sheriff's department now has that book as evidence (wouldn't it be cool if they lifted some prints from it?). So I've been spending a lot of time dealing with that since yesterday evening. I hope to get back into the signing/packing/shipping business tomorrow.
I'll be sure to let you know when all the packages are out the door and when you should let me know if you haven't seen yours yet.
As for the milestone rewards, Mechnoir (and a special bonus reward of three Mechnoir-specific Transmissions) is nearly complete. Once I've finished shipping, I'll be able to put the finish those up and get them out. Hexnoir and Morenoir will follow.
Thanks everyone for your continued patience. I know from the Kickstarter projects that I've backed how eager I get for the rewards, so I definitely appreciate how understanding everyone's been. You are the best!
