Updates and Progress!
All the pieces for your pledges are coming in and fast!
*I've got a sample of the Book of Puzzles for you. It hasn't been through an editor yet, so things may change, but this is meant to give you a taste of things to come! http://machineageproductions.com/?attachment_id=1162
*The 3D Printer is in. We'll need another week or two to get it running and have some samples made. At that point, we'll let you all vote on your Special Thank you gifts.
*Lunch Boxes are IN! Decals are on their way.
*Working on the Building Pieces as we speak. It looks like they'll have magnet backings, so you'll be able to store them on your fridge and they'll slip around a lot less in the lunch box! Yay!
*You still have time to get me your information if you're getting a personalized building for the Book of Buildings.
*I have in all the art for the Book of Obstacles. My artists out did themselves, its all really SUPER charming.
