      Since this was supposed to be sent out I've moved and my 12 month postal redirect has expired. I guess it's good to know I definitely won't receive anything rather than constantly wondering like everyone else now.

      How much longer do you expect the project to take since we are now a year and five months out from the funding of the project?

      2 years to create a comic? Wow, just wow.

      And no, I've said this before, I am the game maker. If I'm doing anything with games it's not involving Simon's time. Rest assured he's concentrated on our book :)

      Hey Sara, we've been updating monthly with progress. Are you not getting the updates?

      Any update? I hope the game is not holding back the comic. :)

      Hey Richard, I apologize for such time between updates. It was a case of holding off to see how much work we could have gotten done so our update would be more positive than "we're still working". Unfortunately a few attempts to bring help on board didn't work out. I'll try to keep updates coming more regularly, it's just tough when there's no huge milestone to announce. As of right now our schedule has the first pass of the 110 page book completed by the first week of September. We're working around the clock to achieve a timely delivery and still achieve the quality everyone is expecting. We're very happy everyone is so patient with us and we will make sure it's well worth the wait. Thank you!

      Creator Richard on July 24, 2013

      You had said back in may (your 2nd to last update) that the book should be finished in June/July, and since it is nearing the end of july, i was just curious.
      You hadn't posted an update since May 28th, so i haven't missed anything..

      Creator Rizzo on July 21, 2013

      Sounds like you're hard at work. I'm sure we all agree that we care more about a nicely finished product than the time it takes to produce. Keep up the good work.

      Creator Bryan Wiegele & Simon Rosati on July 7, 2013

      @Richard, are you not receiving the updates? We have been keeping everyone up to date as we make progress. Our last update explained and apologized for being behind on the book. We're working as fast as we can to get the book finished. I will provide more updates as we progress. Again, thank you for your patience and apologies all around. We greatly underestimated the amount of time to put the entire book together but remain committed to a quality final product.

      Hello,
      I was wondering if you had any new information about the progress and when the rewards will start shipping?
      Thanks

      Hello, how is it all going? Well I hope! :)

    13. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Bryan Wiegele & Simon Rosati on March 13, 2013

      @Sara, I've sent out two updates talking about the books being pushed back to June/July. The entire 88 page book plus the 22 page stretch goal really created a big workload. We're working on it as quickly as we can while making sure our end product will be of high quality.

    14. Img_0195.small

      Creator Sara - Princess of the OOTG $7.77 on March 13, 2013

      Hey, any update on when everything will be ready? :)

    15. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Bryan Wiegele & Simon Rosati on February 5, 2013

      @Jenna, I'm sorry for the delay but as I said in the update, with added work in the stretch goal, an already tight deadline for the book and the lack of being able to bring another artist on board, we had to push the date out. Unfortunately this affects everything, including the rewards as we can't afford to send out rewards as a separate shipment than the books. Again, I apologize for the delay but we're working hard to make sure everything is the highest quality for when you do finally receive it.

      Hi, I was wondering about your latest update; One of the reasons I backed this was to get the miniature figurine by at least March. This is because I was planning on giving the figurine as a b-day present early April. Thanks.

    17. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Bryan Wiegele & Simon Rosati on January 17, 2013

      @Connie, The $40 level was for people who wanted the hardcover edition of the book without the extra rewards. That's why it was listed as "Exclusive" and listed everything it came with. If you'd have pledged $30 you would get a softcover edition of the book and the t-shirt. HC editions of books are much more expensive to produce. Sorry for the confusion.

    18. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Connie Dupuis on January 17, 2013

      $40 level should include tshirt because under rewards it says for pledges above $30, or I would have just pledged $30.

      I see that you tried this campaign once before this one and it failed. Can I ask what you did differently to make this one a success?

    23. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Bryan Wiegele & Simon Rosati on October 17, 2012

      Thank you so much! It just goes to show, the only way you can truly fail is by giving up. Setbacks always will exist!

      Creator S.D. on October 17, 2012

      Great to see so many friends here, from adventure game Kickstarter projects! Hello, friends :-)

      @Bryan: Isn't it interesting to note that your exclusive hardcover tier, by itself, exceeded the original funding target? It goes to show that people enjoy nice, high quality things, intriguing storytelling, and are willing to pay for it. Only lately have I heard of your recent setbacks, and I'm firmly in the "don't give up, Bryan!!" camp. I'd love to see this project blossom into a "new lease on life" for your team. I'd like to extend a genuine, hearty & heart-felt, congratulations to you on this book & soundtrack, as a fan from the community you're most associated-with (*hint* *hint*). Best of luck to you, and a *wink* *wink* back to you, regarding the juicy tidbits dispensed in the update comments...

      Creator TheChosenOne on October 17, 2012

      There. Added a T-shirt last minute.
      -
      I would advice doing the survey as late as possible (best way to counter people moving) a little while before you start to ship stuff. Sometimes people do the survey a day after it has ended but don't ship for many months.
      I'd also would add a line/question in the survey asking people if they have added extra $ for any addons like T-shirts.

    29. Untitled-1_9f99.small

      Creator TheChosenOne on October 17, 2012

      Oh no I never had to resort to such measures but I have backed a few projects here and there and picked some things up.

      Also I'm happy to be a small part of it.
      Thanks and cheers to Bryan and Simon!

      poopy, I suppose I have to settle for "the Red Queen of Oz" P&C adventure game then :P

    34. Untitled-1_9f99.small

      Creator TheChosenOne on October 17, 2012

      If you really are so low on cash I'd advice against spending it in the first place but if have to do it you can pledge for the amount you want and let the pledge fail. You have 7 days after that to fix any problems.

    35. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Bryan Wiegele & Simon Rosati on October 17, 2012

      @Warrick, I wish I could! But sorry, we're down to the last hour and the chess set is something we can only offer in the top tier :(

    36. Chadwsmith.small

      Creator Chad Smith on October 17, 2012

      More than 5 times the number of backers, more than 4 times the amount pledged, and you asked for half as much.

      I'm happy that you kept pushing for this project, and excited to see the results! Congrats Bryan & Simon!

    37. Image-251540-full.small

      Creator Warrick on October 17, 2012

      I would love to change my Pledge to the 32 piece chess set or have the option to get the chess set, only if this campaign went for another few days. Can you extend it? :P

    38. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Bryan Wiegele & Simon Rosati on October 17, 2012

      @Warrick, We've honestly not planned for anything beyond the KS campaign. It's something we'd have to consider...

      after this ends will you still have a way people can buy extra items, eg t-shirts miniatures, plush Cheshire, statue Cheshire?

      Creator Bryan Wiegele & Simon Rosati on October 16, 2012

      @Gabriel, Our print quality is already excellent from the prototype book we've received. Both the $15 and $25 are softcovers, all softcover editions of the books are the same.

      @Bryan
      What about better printing quality at $20k ???

      Also, is there a difference between the books at $15 and $25 tiers?

      @TheChosenOne, I don't know who these people are, but anyone with a little Kickstarter experience would have imagined they'd cross $3M. I thought they'd be closer to $4M, which I don't think can happen, but I'm not surprised by what they managed to get.

    45. 302wiko.small

      People thought PE (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/obsidian/project-eternity'; would have a really really hard time to even get to/near 3 mil. Now they are breaching 3.5k and that is without another 100k from paypal.

      (ofcourse I already called that about a month ago ;) )

      Okay, that hardcover has been calling my name all along. But so has the t-shirt. Just upped to the $40.00 Hardcover Exclusive Tier and added $15.00 on top to get both. Did I do that right? (I know, I'm a bit of a dimglow.)
