Step 18 - Bandage hands
A few things to address in this update.
First of all, the Australian copies have arrived and will be distributed by the end of the week/early next week.
If you're in Canberra, you can message me to go on the list to pick your game up from The Games Capital (a nice central location that might be preferable to some). You'll just have to bring along a print out of your pledge. Or I'll be personally delivering them in the coming days!
If you're not in Canberra, they'll be jumping into the mail soon and will be with you in time for the holiday season!
I thought about it for a while and came to the conclusion that I can't miss the Christmas rush and as such I'll be letting retailers sell Vivarium in Australia once Australian backers have received their copies. While each region's backers will still receive their product before stores begin selling them, this wasn't a decision made easily. As a first time publisher it's important I burn through the full 1,000 copies of Vivarium as quick as possible and gather funds for another project I have in the pipeline. :)
The US shipment should be arriving shortly, once they do I'll get word about when they'll be delivered.
The European and ROW shipment is still due for early January but still looking ahead of schedule.
I'll keep you posted as information comes in. :)
Secondly, I planted the trees yesterday with the help of my parents! My hands are wrapped in bandages due to heaps of blisters but we got it all pretty much done. I made a time lapse video of average quality that I'll upload once I figure out how to do that! While it was a great, cathartic experience, it was rather exhausting digging holes in the hot Australian sun, rewarding, but tiring. I'm glad to have done and glad that people got behind the idea. :)
Until next time!
