      August 1st is approaching, it's actually right around the corner. I'm excited to hear the next excuse though. Cheers!

      @Stuart Carrier, similar message to you, Try reading, you might learn something. Nobody has missed out on anything. The San Francisco CBR has been postponed, not cancelled.

    3. Nathan McCree Creator on

      @Heather Ninneman, try reading the updates, or indeed the numerous direct emails and messages I have sent you personally. That would be a good place to start.

      Really feel upset about how this whole campaign has been handled. The fans pledged all this support and money to make this project successful and it was, but it's over a year later and we are still waiting for the products we pledged for, the album isn't finished and the 1st buffet reception happened but the SF location did not. As a fan and backer of this project, I feel like we have been left in the dark about what is going on with all the delays and that's not right. We have no definite date for a new event for the SF Buffet and instead have only been given a promise to "postpone at a latet time" and those tickets cost the fans a lot of money. At this point, I have a bad taste in my mouth for this whole project and the way it's played out. Don't even know if I want to be involved with it anymore 😕

      So looks like we are getting closer to August 1st... Will we get the merchandising on this date as promised??

    7. William Hopewell on

      For the concert that was supposed to take place in July in San Fransisco, is it possible to get a refund on tickets purchased? As much as I want to go, the other people I'm with wouldn't be able to take more time off and since the trip is already planned, we can't get a refund on that and also do yet another trip for the event.

      Frustration
      In my lexicon of hate
      I see you with your portraiture
      Does he love you?
      Does he love you too?

      The brush strokes
      Kiss your breasts and toes
      I cry icicles in my stein
      The heartbeats flutter
      With an abnormal rhythm

      The pain shoots through my body
      A sword between my thighs
      I wish that I could kill you
      But I too love your eyes

      You’re feeling less whore but you stimulate
      The hatred smolders in your eyes
      I’d drop to my knees in a second
      To salivate in your thighs

      But all I do is fall over
      I don’t have the strength I once had
      In you and your prickless lover
      And his easel in his eyes

      I feel the pain creep up my leg
      Blood runs from my nose
      I puke my guts out at your feet
      You’re more man than I
      To be dead to have no feeling
      To be dry and spermless like a girl

      I want so much to hurt you
      I want so much to hurt you
      I want so much to hurt you
      Marry me
      I want you as my wife

      Spermless like a girl
      More man than I
      More man than I

      Frustration
      In my lexicon of hate
      You’re feeling less like a whore but you
      Stimulate

      All I do is fall over
      I don’t have the strength I once had
      All I do is fall over
      I don’t have the strength I once had

      I want you so much to hurt you
      I want so much to hurt you
      I want so much to hurt you
      I want you as a wife

      Frustration is my lexicon of hate
      Frustration is my lexicon of hate
      Fru… fru… frustration, my lexicon of hate

      I cry icicles
      Heartbeats flutter
      Abnormal rhythm

      I wish that I could kill you
      But I too love your eyes
      I want you as my wife
      I want you as my wife
      Spermless like a girl

      Lucky in feeling
      More man than I
      Marry me, marry me, marry me
      I want you as a wife
      Spermless like a girl
      Puking my guts at your feet
      More man than I
      Fru… fru… fru… frustration

      I just remembered this digital download was supposed to get released. I suppose we're too deep into the Shadow of the Tomb Raider teaser/release hype kicking in for anything like this to happen at the same time. If anyone is looking for something to do for he next few months I can recommend The Room series of phone games. Excellent puzzle escape room stuff. There's four of them now.

    13. Nathan McCree Creator on

      As previously stated we are working towards an August release date. We are trying to release the Digital Download before then but that depends on a number of factors which we have yet to nail down. We have been gathering data from the Add-On purchases and we hope to put some of that merchandise into manufacturing over the next few weeks. Thank you all again for your patience.

      Sorry to bother but there’s been a huge gap between the time I was supposed to get my products and the actual sending of them. I’ve tweeted asking for the new schedule or so and still no answer. When are we gonna enjoy this?!? I’m so excited I’m just asking to know how much longer it’s going to take, but please... make it a real date. I believe in this project and Really want to hear this soon.

      I have every confidence that Nathan will deliver. There is too much as stake for him (read his biography). Plus there is the fact that it is very personal to him now that he has met some of those lucky backers.

      In my experience, delays for KS projects are not unexpected (even multiple delays) and one just has to accept that they occur. I would prefer that this project is done right, not rushed. If there are external pressures at play here causing a delay, then so be it.

      It's just funny how things are... Another KickStarter project, which was funded, in November last year it's about to be delivery already. It's about a new turntable called Mag-Lev. They were able to mass produce a really high-tech TURNTABLE, and here we are waiting for cds, vinyl and t-shirts... Oh yeah, and digital release.

      That strategy of playing dead tends to work, but not for too long though. Being smart enough to come back to live in the right moment is the key factor here. Not giving any feedback and follow up just sounds rude to me, and I'll make sure to never ever again jump in a project leading by these people. I don't mean to offend anybody, but it is just my frustration... sorry!

      @LEMOND Oliver as far as the community knows the worldwide deliver was postponed for August 1st. But, I'm pretty sure we will have to deal with another bad news in the near future. Best scenario we will get this thing mid-September (since will be the Shadow of Tomb Raider's release).
      They finally updated their website and the delivery supposed to be August (from 1st to 31st, who knows?!) Don't expect too much or put to much expectation here... things are though! Cheers!

    36. Michael Prager on

      I just spent a bit of time reading through some of the comments of the self-proclaimed "real backers" and have to say, it is amazing how full of themselves people sometimes are. I am almost willing to bet that it is mostly folks who have thrown in a leisurely 15 bucks and think for that they now deserve super special attention. I mean - really...?

      Of course, I am as disappointed as the next person that the delivery date of the project keeps moving out, but if you were indeed a "real backer" you would make an effort to understand the circumstances and put yourself into the shoes of the 3 (!) people who are doing the work here - and yes, maybe they underestimated it a bit at the beginning and gave out timelines that were too ambitious to meet...

      Personally, I can say that I met 150 "real backers" at the CBR in London last week:

      People who support this project not because they want to get a download of "some nice old Tomb Raider music to store in a back corner of their smartphone somewhere", but who support it because of a true passion for the beautiful music that Nathan has created for us.

      People who did not go there because they are rich or wanted to be at a Champagne party, but people who scraped together their last dime to be able to make it and overcame their anxiety and concerns about meeting 150 strangers - only because of their passion for and commitment to the project - and their desire and interest to get in touch with the people who are making this happen!

      I feel very honoured that I had a chance to actually spend time talking with Nathan, Tracey and other people engaged with the project effort at the event and hear about their good and bad moments along the way. And I am very humbled by how much passion the attendees showed when I got a chance to chat with them too...

      So again:
      Nathan - Thank you for the music!
      And Tracey - Thank you for managing Nathan and getting all this done in the end ;)
      It has been a great pleasure meeting you!

      Having been to the preview I have to say the album is just stunning. For those that are mad about the delay just wait until you get that CD or Vinyl and start playing it. The annoyance will instantly be gone.

    38. Missing avatar

      Sally Berrow on

      @James Harvey: Just because the album is 'in the can' does not mean the album is ready. It means it has been recorded and mixed. Those recordings need to be duplicated and printed onto CDs, vinyl etc. There's also the sleeves for those things to produce, all the other rewards like the posters and the T-shirts... The champagne reception and preparation/delivery thereof was also one of those rewards.

    39. James Harvey on

      @Andrew Field: "At least the album is in the can." Don't you see that this is the reason why backers who made this possible are upset? The album is ready but the people who put their money where their mouth is are suffering whilst the champagne receptions take place in the UK and the US before they can even listen to the product that is already "in the can".

    40. Andrew Field on

      I agree with the last 3 comments. Whilst the delays are frustrating we should not be going overboard with the vitriol. We have been told the album is making good progress, without this project we wouldn't have the opportunity to listen to the Tomb Raider music in this fashion so I am grateful to Nathan and all the backers for the support

      I totally agree with Thomas, Sally, Kevin and Spads.

      I just have to add: thank you Nathan for the great job you and your team have performed so far, and good luck and all my support for remaining tasks. I bet you didn't expect such a challenge when you started this KS project, but that's exactly what makes this project interesting. And even if I'm looking forward to see the final result, I will remain as patient as needed, so just keep going.

      Thomas Smith on

      Nathan, you have our full support! Some people just need to calm down and learn a bit of patience. Delays happen, that's real life - get over it. How can you insult the man who is bringing our dream to life?

    43. Missing avatar

      Sally Berrow on

      First of all, I want to make clear my support and gratefulness for Nathan during this time. I'm so excited to receive my rewards and can't wait to meet you and all the team at the Composer Buffet next week, which I made *as part of my pledge*. I care so much about this project and encouraged all my friends and family to back because I wanted it to become a reality.

      On a less positive note, it really saddens me to see so many negative, and quite frankly abusive comments on here. Nathan and his team are doing the very best they can, and the reality is you really don't know what's going on behind the scenes. Delays are always disappointing, but as someone else has mentioned here, delays on Kickstarter projects are nothing new. I have 3 projects backed at the moment... NONE of these are running on time. Am I worried? Not at all. I've also backed 2 projects in the past with both my rewards delivered. Again, neither of these were delivered on time. I've only ever seen one instance of a backed project not being delivered/cancelled, and that creator is now barred from Kickstarter because they essentially ran off with the money and didn't put it to good use. 'Tis the nature of the beast, and an inherent risk one takes when using this website. If you wish for guaranteed on-time delivery of an item and are not prepared to wait or factor in potential delays, I would advise you not to use Kickstarter in the future. The timelines are always estimates and nothing is guaranteed.

      Nathan has also made clear down below that he's happy to issue refunds if you're not satisfied, so please don't abuse the creator - just ask for your money back. As Spags said, Nathan & co. need our support at this time, not negativity; negativity EATS into creators and makes the situation so much worse. By all means express disappointment, but hurling abuse at Nathan and his team and, rather inexplicably, OTHER BACKERS, isn't on.

      Freya Fenton on

      Delayed AGAIN, this time so rich fans can go to champagne parties. Nice. If the backers are paying for the parties, why were you charging for tickets in the first place? Surely they should be already paid for?

      I've said it on Twitter and I'll say it on here - as soon as we reached the stage of iPhone raffles (which should not have been held on KS according to their TOS) this started feeling like a cash grab. IIRC we were way over the funding point by then ANYWAY. And now another delay.

      I would lay money down that August gets pushed back to November too, quite frankly. Poor Lara. Pretty sure that Core wouldn't want her Classic IP fans played around like this.

    45. Andrew Field on

      Whilst the delay is disappointing at least the album is in the can. If people want to complain then they are entitled to but this is not the first project to be delayed nor the last. Roll on August

    46. Kevin Manier on

      Saying that this delay doesn't affect me in any way would be a lie… But since it's been announced I got around it. The thing that actually makes no sense to me is how the organisation of everything has clearly been melted together. Now we know that the files have been ready to be pressed for two month, so a release on the 1st of May was reasonable, but then two weeks prior to the release, you just notice that it takes 3 weeks for the vinyle editions to be made ? They would have been done by now if the files were sent 2 months before… But let's say that you got your plans shifted because of some reason related to the disc company itself, a delay would be acceptable. But then, you talk about the unfairness of the British buffet having a premiere listing party over the American buffet (which wouldn't have one since the album would've been out for 3 months)… I don't get it, initially the buffets were designed to be an opportunity to meet you and all the team and give away the gold editions… But over that, you say NOW that you noticed this "unfairness"… couldn't it be noticed from the time you announced the release date for the 1st of May (while knowing the two dates of the buffets ?). With all that being said, I'm actually wondering if Square Enix has something to do with this 3 months delay… Since the first buffet is set to the 27th of April and the reveal of Shadow of the Tomb Raider is set on the 28th and the release date of the album was on the 1st, weren't they afraid that the Suite would overshadow (pun intended) the marketing plan for the game ? By delaying it to August, the album would come out a month before the game and reload the marketing campaign for the game itself that probably would have dried a little… But anyway, in the end, I'm just thinking that previous delays were acceptable since it involved Abbey Road Studios to be booked when you wanted to go, but this one… You say that the buffets are one of the reward tiers… Why would THEY have their rewards before us ? To be fair, shouldn't we ALL have the main reward that we invested in, the album, first ? I acknowledge that you are a small team and that you plan big things… But I think that solutions can be found if you have a strict organisation plan… So I'm just going to call out a domino effect on here and say that you got overdone by the amounts of work to do and won't let weakness show through (which would have probably been received better), I just hope that you will do the best and keep your heads above the water…

    47. Missing avatar

      Luciano Vilas Boas on

      @Dani I was being sarcastic... But, yes we have to wait anyways. It's just this mindset that any delay is "acceptable" just because we are on KS that I don't get it. Creater has being doing whatever he wants and that's it. We are the investors and the ones that made this thing happen, and in return we have been treated like shit (sorry, that how I feel).
      And btw, I don't see any kind of compensation for those who has supported this since May-June last year. We should be more than happy on getting our stuff some day, and that's it.
      I hope I'm completely wrong here.

      @Luciano Well, I will have to change the delivery adress to my office, there is always someone there.

      Don't want to make a fuss here. Is just... there are things I don't understand why were not planned better, like the time needed to press albums. It's something so basic and it should have been known since day 1. But ok, what is done is done. I will wait patiently.

      PD: Some kind of compensation would be nice.

      Dani Guerrero on

      I'm still waiting for the public announcement in social networks for the new release date of the TRSuite. I'm dissapointed, not because the delay, but because the misinformation around it and the explanations gived. I understand there are some events around the world, and it takes time to put all together, but there are almost 3.000 backers waiting for the rewards and they keep getting delayed. I'm not sure how many people would attend this events (100 people maybe at most?), but... what happens with the rest of us? I don't see why the rest have to be affected of this "buffets". Also, August is a terrible month for delivers. Most of us will be on holidays, and probably I won't be home by then. I don't know, I put myself more than 100 bucks on this project, and I think I have the right of being not happy about this; and that a new release date I think is important enough to make a big announcement about it, and I'm thinking that this isn't done yet because some people will be mad as myself. This silence strategy is not helping either, and I find it upseting.
