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).

      @Louise Simpson: From Lauren, Jason's wife: We didn't send one to you because you chose no reward. It sounds like you thought you chose a reward though. You pledged $68. Which reward would you like? Please send me an email instead of posting here.

      Did mine get sent ok? I still haven't got mine yet, but my son received his over a month ago at the same address (I donated after him though). Just want to make sure it's on its way. Thanks!

      @NotBlaine: From Lauren, Jason's wife: Since you responded to the Kickstarter survey after the initial deadline of August 14th, yours didn't go out with the first batch. I sent yours out with the second batch on Thursday September 13th. It takes about 3 business days. So you should get it by tomorrow, 9/18.

      @KeithHanson: From Lauren, Jason's wife: Please check your email. I am just about to email you about resolving this. Thanks.

      I have also not yet received mine.....Jason, is there a process for those of us who are still waiting? Is it possible to track or see if it was scanned anywhere? Thanks for the feedback...

      I won't be worried about the package yet until this Friday, since I didn't get it yet. Then I will be concerned if I am missing it.

      I got my package 2 days ago and I've managed to beat the AI @ level 30 so far. I really love the dynamic music, I can't wait to sample the linear tracks!

      My copy arrived today! Just fired it up and am giving it a go!

      Been looking forward to this for awhile! A few years ago, I was flying to or from Australia and I saw a review about it in the in-flight magazine. Unfortunately, I forgot to take the magazine with me and I couldn't remember the name of the game I wanted to play - but I recognized it when I saw it here on Kickstarter. :D

      Creator Erik Harrison on August 29, 2012

      Wow. Mine arrived today. Believe it or not, I can't play it, because my DS was stolen and needs to be replaced. But the feelies! Easily the coolest experience I've had with a game without having to play it.

      Creator Daniel Klainbaum on August 29, 2012

      I just received one in NY. The packaging and inclusions are great, thanks!

      Received my two LE games today. Unfortunately I don't seem to have received the soundtrack code slips. :( I checked both the USPS envelope and game packages very carefully.

      Very lovely packaging despite that though.

      "If you try to download the album now (before October 31), you will download nothing and waste your code!" Surely the code won't be used up unless the date has hit?

      I was wondering when the games would be shipping out. It's gonna narrowly miss my friend's birthday, but he'll still get a helluva present. Can't wait to play this with him. Thanks for all your hard work!
