So exclusive that it wasn't even offered as a possible Kickstarter reward, Number 1/1000 is now up for auction here:

Good luck!


Update #10

A few people have been asking, so I'm posting an update to make it clear.

All aspects of this Kickstarter project, from the video to the text to the update photos to the soundtrack samples, has been placed in the public domain.  It can all be freely reused and modified with absolutely no restrictions, for any purpose, and no permission necessary.

Not like I could stop you from doing this even I wanted to (without installing 2 billion cameras in 2 billion homes).  But I don't want to.


Update #9

Soundtrack Out (And problems with codes)

3 comments

Some of you may have noticed that the Kickstarter-exclusive soundtrack is now live and available on Bandcamp.  To access it, you need to follow the instructions on the slip of paper that you received with your Kickstarter rewards.

Enter your code here:  http://delcroy.bandcamp.com/yum

If you lost your slip or wasted your code accidentally before October 31, just email me, and I'll get you a new code right away:  jasonrohrer@fastmail.fm


Update #8

All Packages Are Away

The last two days were busy:  Yesterday, two mail vans came by to pick up a total of 861 USA-bound packages, and today I spent three hours processing the remaining 302 international packages at the post office (thanks to Wanda, the counter clerk who helped me with this mountain of mail).  I left the post office with a receipt that was 26 ft (8 m) long, and an international postage bill of $4,927.95.

A few VERY important things for backers:

  • Those who are receiving Soundtrack Anthology album downloads (including all Limited Edition recipients) should check their package carefully for tiny download code slips (pictured below).  And please follow the instructions on the slip.  If you try to download the album now (before October 31), you will download nothing and waste your code!  We want you to hear the interactive music in the game before you hear any linear versions.
  • Packages were sent Priority Mail and should arrive in 2-3 days for US residents and 6-10 days for international residents.  Some people got theirs today!
  • For the 44 people who are getting just the photocopied memos:  we haven't forgotten about you.  You'll receive a shipping-info survey soon, and your memos will be sent out in a few weeks.

Now, some additional news:

For those of you who missed out on the campaign, the regular edition of the game is available for mail order purchase right now:  http://diamondtrustgame.com/buy.php

And if you're going to PAX Prime this weekend in Seattle, Tom and I will see you there as part of the Kickstarter games program.  We'll be selling copies of Diamond Trust at our table in the Kickstarter room at the Grand Hyatt (Building E), so stop by, try the game, and save on shipping.  If you bring your DS, we'll even be able to upload the game to you wirelessly (it will remain playable on your DS until you power-off).
