      Just wondering how this is going and if there's an estimated shipping date yet?

    5. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on March 2

      @Jussi We are sorry for the delay. I have answered your email with more information. /Jenny -customer support

      Some emails later, now March, and still no book. And GamesQuest aren't being terribly responsive.

      I emailed you this morning about an alternative solution; I'll need you to respond within the next 24hrs however for it to be viable.

      So, please check your email.

      I still havent received my order. Mailed you about a month ago on this aswell. You replied that you would look into it, and I havent heard anything since.

      @Joseph Sweeney and Andrea Repele: Sorry for the delays on the map! We're working on it.

      @Les Green: The pledge manager for The Electric State is closed so you cannot buy them from there I'm afraid.

      Is it still possible to get pdf versions of Tales From The Loop and Things From The Flood (English version)

      Is the high quality FLAC version of The Electric State soundtrack available yet?

    13. Joseph Sweeney on February 14

      Any news on the road map?

      Still havent received my copy of The Electric State or any of the stretchgoal rewards. Contacted Fria Ligan by email in mid January and got a answer that they would look into the matter. That was a month ago and I have received no further information or update.

      I have not received any word on my reward can you help me find where it's at?

    20. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on February 8

      @Lev This is of course, of great concern for us. We would really like to help you, and all others that are having problems with their delivery. Please, email to and we will look into it all.

    21. Lev on February 8

      @Fria Ligan - Your fulfillment and customer service is not judged by "tens of thousands of items sent from different warehouses to backers all over the world". The people still posting here, trying to get the rewards they _paid for_ certainly couldn't care less about that.

      Your fulfillment is judged by how you handle cases where mistakes or problems arise, _especially_ cases where these mistakes are YOUR fault (per your own admission)!

      The ticket Gamesquest opened for me on has been closed for three days and I have received zero communication before or after this. I am having a hard time understanding why you're allowing Gamesquest to treat your backers in this way. I will be reaching out via email again.

    22. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on February 5

      @Mark Argent Thank you for notifying us. Could you please send an email with your order number to, so that we can look into this? Thanks!

      I never received my copy of The Electric State. Fria Ligan were very responsive and helpful, and they got GamesQuest to send out a second package, but it contained the wrong item. I notified FL and GQ again, and haven't heard anything back.

    24. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on February 2

      @Vladimir Kapustin We are happy to hear you received your book, and that you like it. We just hope you still can enjoy it even though it was a bit squashed.

    25. Vladimir Kapustin on January 31

      The books are stunning. Just got them and I am thrilled.
      My copy The Electric State has the same defect as @Cadd's one had—one corner is squashed a bit.

    26. Vladimir Kapustin on January 31

      @Denis Kulagin Мне в Питер вчера привезли. Попросили назвать адрес организации, я дал адрес приятеля. И потом сама доставка заняла буквально сутки. Но с момента смены адреса до собственно отправки прошла почти неделя. Геймквест тупит, ДиЭйчЭль на высоте.

      Totally agree with Lev. Never received my package and was put in contact with Gamesquest. It's been 12 days since I last heard from them.

      Друзья! Кому-нибудь в Москве доставили уже книжки?
      Мне написали, что проблемы с таможней и нет возможности доставлять на домашний адрес, только на адрес организации.

    31. Vladimir Kapustin on January 28

      Looking forward to it! ;)

    32. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on January 28

      @Lev and Vladimir Kapustin: We are working actively on your cases. As Gamesquest keep our entire stock, they are the only one who can send the books to you. We are very unhappy with this delay, and we have made this very clear to Gamesquest. Overall, the fulfillment of the Electric State has worked well - we are talking about tens of thousands of items sent from different warehouses to backers all over the world - but some shipments have been gone astray and we will not rest until these cases have been resolved.

    33. Lev on January 27

      Working with Gamesquest has been an absolute hassle. I hope that Fria Ligan (and anyone reading this) never use their services for anything. Unfortunately communication with Fria Ligan's support team has not been much better.

      What's really upsetting is that if I had said nothing then I would have never received my rewards at all! Fria Ligan had a "technical error in the order export from the Pledge Manager" (whatever that means) and never followed up to see if the expected number of orders was shipped out.

      Simon creates great art and wonderful books, but I think next time I'll skip his KS and just wait for a wide release instead.

      Finally got mine in North Carolina, USA after the first one was lost. PHEW!

      Gamequest is a big joke!

    37. Vladimir Kapustin on January 24

      This is getting ridiculous. Gamequest wanted a business address instead of a personal one (due to some Russian customs insanity no surprise here). Well, I have given them one but it's been a total silence ever since. Have they got a letter from me? Does the address suit specific circumstances my homeland customs set for this delivery? Have the books been sent yet? An uncertainty is the worst here.

      @Uberking: Sorry for the delay, we're looking into it!

      @Cadd: Sorry about that! Send an email to with pictures of the damage, and we'll help you out. :)

      No posters, sent a email waiting for answear.........

    41. Cadd on January 20

      Book arrived this week (English version) - it's absolutely beautiful!
      However - the packaging was a bit insufficient, two sides only protected by a single layer of regular bubble wrap, so one corner had been slightly dented :(

      While I wait for the book to arrive in the post I'd like to encourage people to have a look at METROPO

    44. Richard Osborn on January 17

      HUGE congratulations on getting the book to be made into a major film!

      Having been along for the ride since the 'Tales from the Loop' kickstarter campaign, I just can't wait for this! It'll give a wider audience a chance to see Simon's wonderful vision.

    45. Max on January 17

      Got my package before NY, it is so awesome I have no words to say :)
      Thank you, guys!
      Looking forward to see your movie.

    46. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on January 17

      @Uberking: Please email to and we'll sort it out!

    47. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on January 17

      @Lev: Hello! You should have received a reply now. We try to answer all emails within 24 hours, but sometimes it can take a little longer. Sorry about that.

    48. Lev on January 16

      As others, have not yet received any items from my pledge level or the extra items I paid for.

      Emailed and a day ago and still no response.

      I understand that Simon is not directly involved, however fulfillment for his previous project was handled much smoother. I don't know what has changed since, however I recommend that Fria Ligan, as a company, reconsider the choices they have made in fulfilling this KS.

    49. Uberking on January 16

      Still no posters. :(
