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

    2. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 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.

    3. 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.

    7. Andrew on June 21

      Still waiting on the shipping. What's happening?

    8. Benjamin Penney on May 13

      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.



    10. 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

    13. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander Creator on April 20

      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

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

      @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.

    17. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander Creator on April 1

      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.

      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.

    21. David Frank on March 27

      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.

    22. Ilias ThE RetrospecT on March 26

      Same goes here unfortunately

      Nothing here either, no game box and no book

      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.

    25. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 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!

    26. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 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!

    27. Andrew on September 10, 2015

      Have the regular Dvd versions been sent out yet?

    28. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 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.

    29. 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. :/

    30. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 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.

    31. Kahuna Kevin on August 18, 2015

      Any update on the boxes/CDs shipping?

    32. 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..?

    33. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 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.

    34. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 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.

    35. jessiebains on July 22, 2015

      Just wondering if I missed this information on an update, but I backed this project at the 30 dollar level and I am still waiting for The Full Digital Download Package which includes: the SPECIAL EDITION game (with behind the scenes footage, deleted scenes, game maker commentary), DVD art and digital copy of the official Quest For Infamy Soundtrack as well.

      Has there been an update as to when we are getting our digital rewards; have they already been given and I missed them? Thanks!

    36. Roger van Velzen on July 21, 2015

      This is older i7 (Sandy Bridge) system running running windows 7 with 8 Gb memory. The video card is a GTX 700 series card and a Logitech MX500. Thanks for the reply. I tend to not be home a lot these days so I appreciate all the help I can get to get this running smoothly.

      Is there a place where we can validate our shipping address to ensure the packages arrive to the correct address?? Thanks!

    38. Kahuna Kevin on July 14, 2015

      When are the $35 CD cases shipping? Just checked my PayPal and I upped $25 from my $10 pledge here. Thx!

    39. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander Creator on June 29, 2015

      Hey Roger, sorry you're still having mouse issues. What are your system specs - what kind of machine, OS, mouse, etc - we can start there and hopefully try and resolve your problems!

    40. Roger van Velzen on June 29, 2015

      Had this game sit for a while hoping that possible patches along the way might solve issues I have with it. Tried again this weekend (26th of June) and it seems that the problem I had still is present.

      When I start this game it will somehow screw up my mouse control completely. My mouse cursor is jerky and seems to be glitching around instead of smooth usage. I have TRIED and play the game but it becomes very frustrating when you can't really click anything. It is like trying to park a car at high speed. :(

      So am I really the ONLY one that has issues with this? Is there anything that can be done to help me resolve these issues? I'd really like to play the game.

    41. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander Creator on June 3, 2015


      Yes, of course! Just send me a message on KS here and I'll update your entry!

      I've moved since I backed this in '12. Is there a way to change the shipping address for my physical order?

    43. Andrew on June 3, 2015

      Have the physical copies gone out yet? Thanks

    44. Kahuna Kevin on April 3, 2015

      Also waiting for the physical version. I upper my pledge via PayPal... Will you have a backer kit that let's us view our total pledged here plus additional PayPal?

    45. Riggo on February 19, 2015

      Hi Bt! Hope all is going well.

    46. John k Arpin on December 13, 2014

      How's the Steam Mac version coming?

    47. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander Creator on November 17, 2014

      Hey Franz, Hey Christian,

      Sorry about the delay - I've been working on a KS update, and we've had a million things going on. Got a lot of info to cover, but I'll have it up soon, I promise! Thanks.
