Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
Very, very sorry guys! We had some personal problem (a very close friend died this month), plus we didn't get notices from your comment from kickstarter as it used to to do. Thus we haven't realized your comments and we thought there were not any. I know it's funny or weird, but that happend. We apologise to you, all of you are absolutely right. It was our fault not to communicate.
We must explicitly state not to become monks, and doing the job are entrusted by you. I can promise you a fresh update this week which will contain real material since I wouldn't like to bespeak before. And we are working hard on Hexpanse project day-by-day. I know you don't see too much from that right now but the result will compensate you fully. We won't cause disappointment at the end, but you know the ordinary expectation from the unforseenable circumstances. It hears like tons of bullshit until you are on the other side, Believe us, we feel this every single day.
Thanks a lot for your patience, and sorry for our follies! We are here and not going away.
Hi. My name is John and I'm a Facebook user... While I'm not quite sure I understand all the animosity toward Facebook here, I do think this should be the central place for updates and information. It bugs me that Korona (and many other designers) think that once the campaign is over they don't need to do more than the minimum updates on KS. Nothing is worse than a silent creator. It kills the energy and everything loses steam when the creator doesn't engage with their community. It's been over a month since Korona's last comment here and even longer since their last update. I know they do post on Facebook, but that is not here and that is not where I go on a regular basis for information.
+1 to the 'I don't use Facebook' crowd
I, too, resent being asked to follow facebook for updates and progress reports. I did not support this project through facebook. This is the appropriate place to inform backers about progress and problems. Period.
Indeed. THIS is the campaign page. Please post updates here. I'll not use Facebook, but you have our money, so please update us over here.
Mother of God...
Why is everyone expecting me to use such scum as Facebook or WhatsUpp?
I don't use Facebook. And I won't.
Keep an eye on the Facebook page, lads! They are working hard to deliver it in time for us. :)
Any news ?!?
Needing to update mailing address. Survey out yet? If so link plz
PNP Updates Korona. ITD had already been through.
Knock, knock? Any updates you can share with us?
Hello Korona Games folks! Any news or updates you want to send our way? How's the prototype coming along?
@Fredrik: In the latest update (16th April) we wrote the following:
"In a few weeks, we are going to get the prototype in hand - we will show it to you, of course! - then we are able to launch the pledge manager issue.
We are as much excited as you to touch the final result of our enormous effort which brings Hexpanse into life. If everything was all right, we would prepare the Print and Play version and send it to you."
That means you won't get the P'n'P until we get the prototype from the printing company, which takes some weeks more, unfortunately. I know it's a little bit later that we promised, but we had to upgrade many elements and develop new content thanks to our successfull campaigns, both KS and Spieleschmiede.
It lasted a little bit more than we expected before. The main goal is to ship the final version in time (September) which is still probably. We are working on it hardly!
What's the status on the pledge manager? On April 3rd "it comes to an end very soon.".
I started with a Print&Play, but have come to the conclusion that I wouldn't mind a physical copy.
Also, when can we expect the Print&Play?
Post 400! Woohoo!
Looking forward to this great looking game.
Has anything more been planned since the spiele campaign, such as the defender and the craters?
@David: Check the last update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1385946864/hexpanse/posts/1833507
We've reached the Librarian and some other excellent things.
I'm intrigued to know, are there plans to include some of the other elements such as the librarian and craters? Or should I just wait and see???
@David Humphrey: Thanks. We had been tested the solo mode more times, but it's not very easy to get a prefect solution. To be honest it would need more time and we have to go on with other stuff now.
@Symond Caldo: Apologise for this, we are not ready with everything due to several reasons. We are developing game components right now, and should not have put any element into the game which is not completly tested. It would take a month more probably.
So where are the pnp files? It says March.
Exciting news about new game elements in the pipeline! The defender looks great, Korona!
Has there been any play testing for the solo mode?
@Leonard Simpson: It's pretty easy. Just enter your firstname.lastname@example.org address!
@Patrik Csapi: You can send the name in your private answer for our letters.
Where can i send the name to the early bird admiral edition?
Howdy. I don't believe I have received an email about the early bird admiral. Is there a way to check?
@Helga Lucey: We have 139 early bird backers. Almost 60 did not answer the first time. When you send a message through kickstarter you can send to all backers of a reward or write them one-by-one. We are sorry for dsiturbing you secondly with the same issue, but we have to spare our time for develoing a game instead of mailing for hours. Necessarily would be more professional with single letters, but hopefully you will understand our point of view.
I backed this project with early bird admiral edition. I received my second message from you asking what was my chosen name to be added to the board. I replied the first time and would appreciate if you could acknowledge that you received the message and that my name will be on my board.
I should not have to post here to find out, you should have replied to my message. Very unprofessional.. :o(
We are still negotiating with pledge manager companies, but it comes to an end very soon. Micheal's idea is right, we are goint to count those late pledges in stretch goals, and you will get some extra stuff if you manage to reach a new one. The only problem that 30 backers haven't paid their pledges thus we left approx. $1500.
Agree, I also planning to update with add-ons.
And maybe, it seems I'm one of the 126 "sleepers" with a print-and-play,
we could raise with some pledge manager increasing money the last stretchgoal?
Is there any news about the pledge manager release and timeframe?
(At least you'll get some more money by increasing my pledge from a "lurking" pledge to an all-in...)
@David Humphrey: It's only calm at the surface, inside the abyss there is something afoot...
Follow us on facebook, you can pick up informations: https://www.facebook.com/HexpanseGame
It's all gone quiet...
These questions haven't decided yet. We are going to ask all of our backers about they would like. We are not able to promise an other gift, but we can give you ideas or some more rules can turn up.
Could we have at least the "crater" rules? It seems simple to add some craters (home-made) to the game...
A lot of germans are still on the original KS, for example me too..., and I ordered only the additional "german" rulebook at the german campaign (in addition). I think a few others did the same because the game itself, and all in-game tiles and cards are language independend. And I WANT the golden Admirals Edition...! :-)
At least maybe add the craters and solo mode as a special gratis for the expansion? :)
@Sebastian Du konntest eine deutsche Übersetzung bei der Spieleschmiede kaufen, aber die Kampagne ist ja nun leider zu Ende.
Does the successful German campaign bring us also a German edition we can order?
Holding out hope for solo/co-op mode here too.
So no solo/co-op mode? :(
@Micheal: Of course, nothing has happend to alter our schedule for shipping. We are working hard in the background, and keep the right pace.
Also, are we still on schedule for September?
Getting excited for this one again! Cheers for another great campaign.
All right, men! A new update is going to launch soon...
Yes please! An official update would be nice since that was a major milestone that was achieved.
Do you plan to share an official update about the german campaign and the PM? Thank you
