Game Salute and Springboard Seal of Approval
Van Ryder Games to use Game Salute for fulfillment services!
What does this mean for you?
Well first and foremost it means that we have the Springboard Seal of Approval.
"All titles approved for the Springboard Seal of Quality are vetted by the industry professionals at Game Salute. During this comprehensive evaluation process, we work with the publisher to ensure quality. This includes ensuring solid designs, thorough playtesting and refinement, excellent presentation, and high quality components." ~Game Salute (http://www.gamesalute.com/?page_id=9774)
This validation should give you great confidence that you will most likely appreciate and enjoy the product you receive!
With Game Salute as our partner we retain a certain level of control that probably wouldn't be possible under the traditional distribution model. For instance, it is my plan that not one copy of "If I'm Going Down..." will be shipped (even to reviewers, unless they are also backers of course :) ) until each and every Kickstarter copy of the game has been shipped! I don't know about you, but seeing reviews with a final production copy of a game I Kickstarted before mine has even shipped is a little irksome to me. I plan for you all to be the first to have the game, after all, it is you who brought it to life. It is only right YOU should be the first to see the final product!
Game Salute takes pride in customer service, which is very important to Van Ryder Games. I have no plans to dump a game in your lap and not support the product. I want you to feel comfortable bringing any problems, questions, or concerns to myself or Game Salute.
Game Salute directly serves hundreds of game stores. Any game store can sign up to get special service and access to the rapidly growing Game Salute library. You should encourage your local game store to sign up if they have not already. Especially if they want to stock "If I'm Going Down..." as the first printing is rather limited in number!
These are just a few of many benefits that come with our partnership with Game Salute.
Thank you all for your patience as I continue to work nightly to bring you a great product. And most of all, thank you for your continued support!
