      Unfortunately not and there seems no one to have received a game so far or at least no one reported to have got one. I still can't understand why BT is doing this to us? If really there will be no shipping then please tell us as hoping for nothing is the worst.

      I never received anything except empty promises (neither game nor hint book).

      Now I learned that at least one hint book as been sent out and I would tend to think this is very inappropriate and rather discriminatory behavior.

      Usually no one gets anything or everybody gets something and why does only a handful of people (probably those who are in close contact with the creator or those pestering most) get their items?

      Please don't get me wrong, I'm clearly angry at the creator and not the backers. I spent over $150 for both Quest for Infamy projects (game and book) and got no physical reward at all. I'm really upset about this as I believed in this whole concept from the start and the person that was behind it and which told me since months and months I would get my game and my book...

      Anyway, thanks to all the backers that take their time to come here and post their opinions and experiences. I’m posting this also in the project for the hint book and I hope more backers will join to tell if they got their items or not or if they got at least answers or some kind of support.

      "I have been patient for quite a long time now and attempted to give Steven every benefit of the doubt but I can no longer say that. I have reached the point where I have to consider that shipping is not actually happening as he claims and that it is possible that said packages don't even exist. "
      SADLY, have to agree.
      NO ONE on FB or here EVER posted a pic of receiving a package.
      But a lot have already sent out if we believe in what was told over and over again.
      Last "next week 100% sure" message is again many weeks old.
      This STINKS a lot and I'm done with excuses all over again.
      Seems that money is lost once and forever :(

      Well, over two weeks have gone by since the last post made by Steven. In said post, he claimed he was going to send packages out to a few of us, myself being one of them. Also mentioned he would send receipts, pics, and PMs. I received none of those and, of course, have not received my package. I have been patient for quite a long time now and attempted to give Steven every benefit of the doubt but I can no longer say that. I have reached the point where I have to consider that shipping is not actually happening as he claims and that it is possible that said packages don't even exist. Steven and the crew are all very talented individuals who delivered a great game as promised. But after being told personally that my package was to be shipped plus evidence of said shipping and receiving none of that, I can't help but think that I am being lied to. That we all are being lied to. At this point, I highly doubt I'll ever receive my physical rewards. I hope at least some of you do.

    6. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time creator on October 27

      Right, probably because they aren't checking back here - I'll make sure to send your packages out next. I'm sending out some tomorrow (Friday) and I will specifically send your packages. I'll send you guys receipts and pics via PM tomorrow afternoon.

      Helmishgen on October 27

      Steven, a suggestion if I may. Ship to eXo Scoriae or Paskarl or myself, we will then post here that we have received and that should, at the very least, let those who look for info here know that packages are in fact going out. I know there are only us vocal few who are still posting here but the fact that no one has posted stating they have received their items is concerning.

    8. eXoScoriae on October 25

      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.

    9. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time creator on October 24

      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.

    10. eXoScoriae on October 24

      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.

    11. Paskarl (k0SH) on October 20

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

    12. 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?

    14. 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.

    15. Paskarl (k0SH) on October 8

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

      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 :)

    23. 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.

    24. 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.

    28. Andrew on June 21

      Still waiting on the shipping. What's happening?

    29. Benjamin Penney on May 13, 2016

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

      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.



    31. eXoScoriae on May 9, 2016

      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.

    34. 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.

      @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.

    38. 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.

      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.

    41. 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.

    42. 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.

      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.

    46. 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!

    47. 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!
