126 Cartons Delivered Today

The freight truck just came and dropped two pallets off at my house.  126 cartons, 48 units per carton, and from an initial survey, everything is here (21 boxes of special editions, including one partial box of 40, and 105 boxes of regular editions, including one partial box of 8).

Pictures below.  "Duel Screen," eh?.  The fellow included for size reference is Novy, 21 months old.

      Unfortunately, there was no way to set an embargo date in Bandcamp. If download codes have been handed out for an album, even a private album, then people can try to download it. And it's impossible to generate codes for an album that hasn't been created yet. SO, what we've done is put an empty placeholder album there for now, which allowed us to generate codes. And we can change that album at any time (by actually uploading the real material), which we will do before October 31. Yes, that means that if you try to download it early, you will download an empty album and waste your code!

      Do you have any estimate on when you'll be able to start mailing them our way? I'm super anxious to play. :P

      Tingling with excitement. :D

      The game does include a duelling screen, right?

    5. Creator Sam Mayo on August 7, 2012

      Awesome! Best of luck with the postage process - that's a lot of work to still be done.

    6. Creator Jon Pernell on August 7, 2012

      Wow! That's a big shipment!

    7. Creator Bret Gourdie on August 7, 2012

      Pretty sure the DS stands for "Developers' System," not Dual/Duel Screen.

      Those images are very cool! Congratulations once again.

      IndiePub is Zoo's indie-publishing branch. The games actually say "IndiePub" on the front, not Zoo. But for whatever reason, the packaging company put Zoo on the cartons.

    10. Creator Maxwell Smart on August 7, 2012

      So Zoo Games is still involved somehow, then? I'm curious as to how.

    11. Creator Alexander Lucard on August 7, 2012

      Wow, Zoo Games? I thought they became IndiePub or whatever. Truly, DToL will be the best game they ever published.

      Hope you made sure Novy was off the truck when the door was shut! But that looks so very impressive, seeing so many copies of the game there.

    13. Creator Thibaut Girka on August 7, 2012

      This is awesome. Can't wait to receive the game!

    14. Creator Ben Whelan on August 7, 2012

      Great stuff! It's exciting to see the photos - I'm sure it's even more exciting for you.

      Are they basically ready to ship, or do you still need to 'assemble' the LE copies?

    15. Creator Antonio Garcia on August 7, 2012

      They do exist! Can't wait to get my copy in the mail.
