Lunarchitects shipments underway! And Gamehole Con
I'm happy to say that as of right now 872 out of 888 shipments are in process! Over the last week, Shipwire's warehouses received and readied all the game pallets, and I shipped two test orders successfully. Today the "orders" were submitted to Shipwire, so now they'll box up and ship the packages ASAP. Over the next few days, you'll receive three communication emails from Shipwire / shipping@ironkittengames:
- 1. Warehouse Confirmation email: this will let you know that the "order" has been received by their warehouse, and will list its contents and address. It'll also include an estimated delivery date. This will not include tracking... yet.
- 2. Shipping Confirmation email: this will confirm that your package has been handed off to UPS / Fedex / Royal Mail / etc... and most will include a tracking number.
- 3. Delivery Confirmation email: finally, this will let you know that according to the shipper, the package has been delivered to your doorstep (yay!).
If there is wrong information in any of those three emails, reply and let me know! We'd like to hear sooner rather than later if an address is wrong, quantity is wrong, etc.
872/888? What about the other 16 orders? Well, unfortunately not everyone has responded to my nagging. One backer has never responded to any messages or emails (not even the original survey), while 15 others have not given me their phone number (and my google-sleuthing hasn't gotten me anywhere). It would have been more than 16 were it not for reverse-address search on the whitepages site! But anyway, if by the end of the week you haven't gotten at least a Warehouse Confirmation email from email@example.com, please contact us- you might be one of the 16 (but I'd bet if you're reading this, you're not).
This coming weekend, the local-ish convention GameHole Con will be held in Madison, WI. Last year (it's third year) they had 1,300 attendees with over 4,000 event tickets sold, so it's not HUGE, but it's big enough!
Iron Kitten Games will be there, and I will personally be hosting 6 Lunarchitects events, teaching at least the 26 people who pre-registered for the events. We were at Gamehole last year, right before this Kickstarter campaign launched, and tons of people saw Lunarchitects, many played it, and I know the exposure helped the campaign momentum. So if you're in the area or are already going to the con, feel free and stop by and say hi! You might even have your copy in-hand by then :)
While this is the culmination of lots of work (and waiting), we're on the last step! But if there are ANY issues with your games, please feel free and contact us via Kickstarter, via the ironkittengames.com website, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We did receive some replacement parts from the factory, and if there are issues we will work hard to make everything right. You backers have been great, and making you happy is our #1 goal.
Thank you all, again!
