We Broke the Post Office
Some lessons we have learned from Kickstarter:
1. We love video games, art and development. We hate prize fullfillment. Don't misunderstand - we love giving you guys posters and shirts and seeing how excited everyone is about the project, but we aren't exactly logistics people.
2. Shipping 100 tubes full of shirts, posters and other goodies is not something anyone is good at. UPS, USPS, FedEx - none of them. But we finally just went in and did it, by hand, manually entering every address to get these puppies out. Proof is attached. Behind us is a line of very pissed off people waiting to send packages and personal mail - nothing important, were sure, but stuff none the less. We were going to take a picture but decided against it.
3. Australia is really far away. We would appreciate it if you could move your continent a bit closer to save on parcel. Japan too.
4. Tim Schafer is a god. Unrelated, we know, but Double Fines achievements on Kickstarter are really amazing. We really love this platform. And we're really excited about a lot of other games coming out through kickstarter as well.
So all that said, we hope you guys really love your posters, t-shirts buttons etc. We're gonna release some iPhone and iPad wallpapers this week as well. And please, post pictures of your gear on facebook - we love seeing you guys get excited.
As always, thanks so much for supporting us and thanks so much for being patient when it comes to our development, prizes and just about everything else. We are working extremely hard on the game. Also, we hope your going to PAX, cause there might be playable demos, talks, roundtables, and exclusive schwag from Warballoon. More on that soon...
