      What do you expect? You've had the boxes for over a year.

      September 2015 - Yay, the boxes are here!
      January - I'm sending out a few each day.
      April 1st-20th - Boxes are being sent every day
      July 18th - Your boxes are going out soon.

      I just went and added up the number of people who pledged at tiers that included the physical dvd and/or the big box. I came up with 375 (rounding up).

      If you had sent even 1 game a day since they came in, you would be done by now. So your claim that you are sending a few every day is bull.

    2. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator 1 day ago

      I'm mailing them out, one at a time, as I get to them - sending out a few a week. I did speak to Paskarl about this personally on FB, I only saw this message today. Packages are going out, I don't really have anything more exciting to update that to say that. Yours should arrive soon. Don't worry, in January I'm sure I'll have something new to tell you, but sarcasm duly noted.

    3. eXoScoriae 1 day ago

      Nope. No updates. Maybe in January we will get another update telling us about how hard it is to be a dad and a responsible adult at the same time.

      ANY UPDATE ON SHIPPING 'Quest For Infamy' and 'The Quest For Infamy Companion - Art/Strategy/Hint Book' ??? :(

    5. Bob Zygala on October 17

      2 1/3rd years since the game came out and I have yet to receive my big box or strategy guide. This has long since ceased to be understandable delays.

      Has anyone received their items?

    7. eXoScoriae on October 12

      BT stopped responding to any messages I sent him after I got my digital key back in 2014. Since then I have only messaged him twice, both respectfully asking for an update.

      It may be for the best that IQ as a company has folded. It is painfully obvious there is no longer anyone involved who has a passion for it, or cares to follow through on their previous commitments.

      Shipping is really bloody easy. You get a hard foldable priority mail box from the post office. You fold it and use the glue part to make it stick. you place a few packing peanuts or even some crumpled paper inside. You place the physical items inside. You place another piece of packing on top. You seal the box. Repeat.

      Take said boxes to the post office. Mail them.

      No more "monkey on your back". No more comments page filled with people asking wtf is going on.

    8. Paskarl (k0SH) on October 8

      And another month has past and no items have arrived.. :(

      Hey Chris, no I haven't received a thing. At this point it's slowly starting to take the piss.

      Has someone received physical items so far for the game or gotten the companion book? Unfortunately BT does not answer my email and there is no update for quite some time, so I want to ask the community if someone has received something so far and I'm just missing something or just being impatient. Thanks in advance for your help :)

      Great news on the shipping!
      Sad news about the future of IQ!
      Will wear my IQ t-shirt with proud!

    16. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on July 18

      Hi guys, I've posted an update - and your packages should be going out soon. I've contacted most of you privately as well.

    17. Paskarl (k0SH) on July 17

      An update would be very much appreciated indeed.
      Still no boxed game nor companion book :(
      And seriously! Start to doubt we'll ever get them :(

      Hi Steven, according to the tweets we had last month I should have received a sending notice by now. What's up? All the people asking here for the same doesn't bode me well with confidence to be perfectly honest.

    21. Andrew on June 21

      Still waiting on the shipping. What's happening?

    22. Benjamin Penney on May 13

      Melbourne, Australia. I haven't received anything yet either.

      Chris on May 13

      Hi there,

      I have not received anything so far either. I'm from Europe/Luxembourg. Is this normal or should I be worried? Would appreciate your help in this.



    24. eXoScoriae on May 9

      Hey there BT. Have all the big boxes been sent out yet? It's been 5 months since shipping started (according to the January update?), but I have yet to receive anything. Thanks.

      Enjoy pax east! I guess ill have to patiently put off playing the game then ;p

    27. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on April 20, 2016

      He's good... growing like a weed, and mischievous as can be. Shipping is going well; I keep sending out more items every week, though it's on hold this week because we're going to PAX East in Boston - when I get back, it'll resume. Hoping to get everything out and finished in the next two months.

      Hey Bt, how is the kid? with the pleasantries out of the way haha.. how is shipping going? my mailman is starting to get sick me because of me asking him "is it there yet" every day.

      Alex on April 4, 2016

      So I finally got the game today in the mail. Hoping everyone who backed at a physical level will be getting theirs very soon.

      Please see my pm I sent you.

      @Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander
      I hope these packages will have tracking numbers, and once mine is sent out, I would appreciate it if you can pm me my tracking number so that I can keep tabs on it and won't have to email you with inquiries as to its whereabouts.

    31. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on April 1, 2016

      Hey guys - got your PMs and messages. The last batch had a problem with the postage, re-done and set to go out now. I'm taking it to the Post Office tomorrow morning. Sorry for the delay; my time is really cut short because I'm watching our infant son during the days, and it's been difficult to do much right now. But more are going out with this group, and I'll keep sending out packages.

      Here's a picture of some of the packages (With names blurred out for privacy) that I took today. After I take them to the Post Office tomorrow morn, I'll post a large update. Sorry about the delays, really - this is giving me a lot of anxiety. I'm trying my best, and I promise things will go better and smoother from here out.

      Alex on March 31, 2016

      You beat me to it. I just sent Steve a pm asking him about the same thing. Let's see how long it's going to take him before he provides us with this elusive update of his.

    33. W on March 31, 2016


    34. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on March 27, 2016

      Hey guys - busy weekend with the holiday and family. I brought the packages to the post office last week; am shipping more this week. I'll check and see what's up with your packages. I'll post an update tomorrow after my visit. I'm really sorry about this - I'm still working hard to make sure everyone gets their stuff.

    35. David Frank on March 27, 2016

      I seem to be in the same boat as Alex and others. I have also gotten the same responses as Alex has gotten and I also live only 2 hours away from Steven. The last one I was told my package was mailed on Friday the 11th, but it still hasn't arrived, so it must be on the back of a turtle somewhere. I sent another message to Steven with a inquiry about 5 days ago, but I still haven't heard anything back yet from him. I just wish I could get the truth with what is going on. I don't mid waiting, but I hate being lied to or at least that it is what appears to be going on.

    36. Ilias ThE RetrospecT on March 26, 2016

      Same goes here unfortunately

      Alex on March 15, 2016

      Has anyone actually received their physical game yet? I've been promised time and again that mine has shipped/will be shipping/etc.. only to keep finding out that nothing was shipped and/or shipping messed up with sending out my game (or something like that). And I'm within the same state as "BT" and according to "BT" I would have received the game within 3 days if/when it would have been shipped out already. Several emails back and forth since beginning of February and still nothing.

    39. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on January 28, 2016

      Hey guys - I have been sending out packages, but at a slower rate - with the holidays, the birth of my son and the new game, The Order of the Thorne coming out, It's been busy - but I've started sending out the single DVDs - in the coming weeks more and more packages will be going out, including the larger ones that have boxes and some that have boxes and the QFI Companion. Thanks for being patient with me - I hope you enjoy your rewards!

    40. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on September 10, 2015

      Hey Andrew - not yet. I'm still waiting for them to be delivered. According to the production company, the estimated ship date to me is -
      Est. Ship Date
      Sep 15 - 17

      They'll begin going out soon after that, along with the fully boxed editions on the heels of those! Very exciting stuff, really. I'll be glad to get these to their homes!

    41. Andrew on September 10, 2015

      Have the regular Dvd versions been sent out yet?

    42. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on September 7, 2015

      Hey Raven!

      If you didn't get it, try using the Humble Key Resender and entering the email address associated with your Kickstarter Account.

      You should be able to redeem your copy there. If that doesn't work, send me a PM and we'll get this taken care of.

    43. Raven on August 22, 2015

      I'm a backer and I have no idea how to get the game. I still didn't get to play it. :/

    44. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on August 18, 2015

      Hey Daniel,

      I would LIKE to get a Mac Steam version working, but it doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon. I hope it changes in the future - we have been working on porting the AGS engine to Mac natively for that, but work on that has pretty much stopped and out of our hands right now.

      Kevin - Yes! I should have a big update coming soon.

    45. Kahuna Kevin on August 18, 2015

      Any update on the boxes/CDs shipping?

    46. Daniel Osers on August 15, 2015

      Are there any updates on the MAC Steam version? It's not mid 2015 - are we to assume it's just not happening..?

    47. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on July 22, 2015

      David - to confirm your address, you can send me a private message and we'll make sure.

      Roger - This may be an issue with the game engine, AGS. I'll keep looking into it now that I know your specs. Get back to you soon.

    48. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time Creator on July 22, 2015

      Hey Jesse - yeah!! You should have gotten them long ago - send me a private message here, or an email - info at and I'll make sure you've got everything.
