I just got word that a pallet of games heading to Aetherworks got crushed during freight.
Obviously most of the games are still fine, but there was about 7-10 that are probably totally squashed though (I am awaiting the pictures to see for myself). Right now my options are to hold up the entire order, or to send the games out minus the ones mentioned that are unacceptable to send to a customer.
I have decided to send the games out - with a note to my AUS and NZ backers:
If you want to for sure be in the first wave of orders that will start going out tomorrow, comment on this update as soon as you can! Even if you dont respond, most people will be on this list. Most of the AUS/NZ folks that comment on the previous updates were automatically put here just because I knew they were keenly waiting more than most.
If you dont respond to this, you might randomly be one of the ~7-10 or so people that will have to wait until I get my surplus orders and mail them direct to you. Again, I apologize and will obviously pay for all shipping, and expedite it.
Additionally, if you find that your order is not up to snuff in any way, contact me! We will make it right!
Sidenote - Aetherworks is incredible, and has nothing to do with the freight damages. They have been open and very informative regarding the damages and helping me create a plan to get games to all of you.
