      Well, his previous goal was to send at least 10 packages per week. I also wonder what's the current status.

    5. eXoScoriae on August 8

      Wow, so now he isn't even replying to the info below?

      I'd suggest spamming the IQ forums then.

      I had to essentially email/post to him daily to finally get a response, at which point he acted like he was easy to get a hold of the entire time.

      It was only by being a complete dick that I actually got anything out of this kickstarter. Which is sad. As I know that had I not, the little group of packages in March would have never gone out.

      I wish my advice to you guys wasn't to be a complete dick.... but it seems to be the only methodology that has actually had any results so far :/

    6. themisGR on August 7

      Last update, regarding shipping of QfI boxes, was in March 2017. Today, 5 months later, I still haven't received my game. Is there ANY case, one of you guys at IA let us know WHAT is going on, and give us backers ANY info on WHEN are you planning to send out our games? Come on guys, this is ridiculous. We've been patient, we've shown a great deal of understanding, but we would appreciate AT LEAST some kind of info / update!!

      I emailed info@infamous-quests.com a couple of days ago. No reply yet.

      Still waiting on standard DVD copy.

    12. Magne Karlsen on July 9

      656 backers with physical rewards. Five years later and shipping is still not done. Years ago he said he had all the items, only needed to ship them. This is just pathetic, how hard is it to make short updates regarding shipments. How many packages are left?

      W.G. on July 5

      Same here. Nothing received. Last update was 4 months ago (about starting shipping).

    14. themisGR on July 5

      Any updates on shipping would be really appreciated. Its mid summer 2017 guys, come on now, seriously.

    15. Andrew on July 2

      It is criminal that your backers are having to hound you about their rewards from a project that was successfully funded 5 years ago! Where are the physical rewards? Do they even exist?

    16. Andrew on June 26

      Sent you guys an email nearly 3 weeks ago regarding shipping. Any update?

      Anything new about the shipping. Just a little update on what is happening would really be nice. Thanks

    18. Andrew on May 20

      Still waiting on the standard dvd edition.

      Sorry but this campaign has really soured pledging physical on software projects for me. Think I'll be only backing digital delivery from now on.

    19. eXoScoriae on May 15

      Correction, here is the proper email:
      info@infamous-quests.com

    20. eXoScoriae on May 15

      It pays to be vocal. Everyone who pledged for this should care about their money and where it went. It always amazes me the number of people who say things like, "Oh well, I just wanted to support them. I'm fine if I don't get anything." Or even worse, "You can't actually expect to receive anything, Kickstarter is not a store, it's a donation."

      There *is* an obligation to be filled. And some people need motivation to fulfill that obligation.

      For those who haven't received their items yet, email info@infamousequests.com and post to the forums over there.

    21. Insert Disk 2 on May 14

      Hi,
      I guess now that you've dealed with the more vocal people, the rest of us are not going to ever receive anything, are we ?
      Sorry if I'm being rather blunt, but I've also pledged for "Order of the Thorne" & "Roehm To Ruin" physical copies, and I'm very worried I'll never see any of the 3.

    22. themisGR on May 12

      Any chance for an update? It's been TWO months since some of the backers received their physical rewards. How's the shipping process going?

      Update please!

      C'mon fellas, by the time we get the physical orders this game will be actually retro.

      I haven't received my physical reward yet either, but it's nice to know that things are being sent out. Steven, when can we expect the next shipments? Can you provide rough numbers of how many have been shipped and how many are left to be shipped?

      Chris on April 12

      Hi there, I have not received the game or companion so far either but reading that people start to get theirs makes me really happy :) Looking really forward to get my items and will let people here know if I get them

    28. Andrew on April 12

      What's happening, anybody?

    29. Andrew on March 22, 2017

      Does the shipping update apply to the standard dvd box edition too? Still waiting on that and surely a standard mailer was all that was required?

    30. Paskarl (k0SH) on March 14, 2017

      Received my box too (Germany).
      Thanks.
      Unfortunatelly it got a bit damaged on the long journey :(
      Box content and companion are GREAT!

    31. eXoScoriae on March 13, 2017

      My copy of the game arrived today.

      Thanks to BT for following through. It's nice to see this Kickstarter through.

      Oh, and groovy dad. Go fuck yourself.

      UPDATE - I GOT MY REWARD TODAY! I did in fact receive my physical copy of Quest for Infamy. Also included was a sheet print that looks a lot like Creepy magazine. It shipped out from Minoa, NY on the 7th and I got it on the 10th. Thank you Steven and the Infamous Quests team!!!

      Speaking of hot air... Stephen, either post news on refunds or on shipping orders.. because if I am reading one more word about Disney world I am going to flip.

    35. GroovyDad and the Slap Me Some Skin Kids on March 5, 2017

      Well eXoScoriae it looks like you have become a broken record at this point. At least we all know that you are full of hot air at this point.

    36. eXoScoriae on March 4, 2017

      Hey GroovyDad, seriously, go fuck yourself.

    37. Fien on March 1, 2017

      Mr Blackthorne. Three weeks ago, you said you would post a detailed update about the physical rewards "in the next couple of weeks". Still waiting...

    38. GroovyDad and the Slap Me Some Skin Kids on February 26, 2017

      Well eXoScoriae I am guessing that you are a spoiled little child then. You do realize that in todays civilized world you are acting like a cry baby. All I am asking is that you act like an adult. But it is like you are incapable of doing anything more than making blank threats against people that you don't even know and screaming with vulgarity. Is this how you talk to everybody? Or just people that you will think that you will never come face to face with?

    39. eXoScoriae on February 20, 2017

      Hey GroovyDad, seriously, go fuck yourself.

    40. GroovyDad and the Slap Me Some Skin Kids on February 15, 2017

      Dude, your anger, frustration, and irrational ommunications is all on you. I just called for calm and clear heads and you freaking verbally attack me. I'm guessing that you're an adult but you're acting like a psychotic little child that screaming and yelling because he doesn't get to play with the toys when he wants to. I am also waiting on the collector's edition and the hint book. But I'm just going to ask again and let's discuss this in a civil manner and not use vulgarity and threats. We can actually get along but you have to try man.

    41. eXoScoriae on February 10, 2017

      You have no idea how long I tried to be nice before I became frustrated.

    42. eXoScoriae on February 10, 2017

      Hey GroovyDad, go fuck yourself. If it wasn't for me, you wouldn't even have an update.

    43. GroovyDad and the Slap Me Some Skin Kids on February 8, 2017

      Thank you Steven, we are all very excited to get the physical goods to the game. And we all know that you have been going through a whole lot in the past year. Sometimes we forget that other people have lives, ups and downs, successes and tragedies. And you especially have had those in droves in the past few years. I know that it gets frustrating waiting on that collector’s edition and guide book. But in the end and to us backers including eXo, it is just a box to an awesome game. To you it is a part of your passion and your life. Don’t let the angry mob sway your actions and life. You have come a long way doing what you wanted to do and accomplishing more than most. Hey eXo, honey works way more than salt man. I know you are frustrated but please man. Calm down because we are all in the same boat.

    44. Steven "Blackthorne" Alexander 3-time creator on February 7, 2017

      Hey Guys, obviously I haven't checked this comment section in some time, so I apologize. eXo has contacted me on other venues and informed me of this, so I'm by here to try and respond to you.

      I will be posting a much more detailed update in the next couple weeks, hopefully with pictures and such to help assuage fears, but I promise you - your packages will come. I understand people's frustrations here regarding the physical rewards, and honestly, it's a big black spot on this for me - as I'm proud of the team's work on Quest for Infamy. I think we created a great adventure game, and I'm proud that we created and finished it. Being held back on the physical rewards is something that weighs on me, and definitely adds to my personal stress. I do want you to know that I care, I'm not some guy who is laughing at you or running away - you will get your items. I'm sorry about the delays, I've had many things holding me up. I understand why eXo is so mad, and I'm doing my best to try and take care of things. Again, if anyone wants to talk to me personally about anything, you can send an email to info@infamous-quets.com and it'll reach me. I check my email often, sorry about forgetting the comments section. You are important to me, please know that.

    45. eXoScoriae on February 7, 2017

      For those keeping count, Steven has been claiming since September of 2015 that items have been sent out every week. At one point he claimed he was sending about 3 packages per week.

      Basic math says that there have been 69 weeks since October 1st, 2015. At 3 packages per week, that would have been 207 packages.

      There were 174 backers who pledged for the basic physical DVD.
      68 more backers pledged for the special edition DVD.
      148 backers pledged at a tier that would include the big box.

      At 207 packages, every single backer who supported at the basic DVD level should have received their item, as well as nearly half of the "special edition" dvd backers.

      And yet, not a single person in the comments has ever claimed to have received anything.

      Meanwhile, over in the dozens of other adventure game kickstarters I have backed, backers are quick to post pictures of their goods and share news that they have received their items.

      Steven however claims that everyone who has received items here must not be posting about it. He is lying about shipping and then pretending to place blame on backers for not posting about the packages he hasn't actually sent out. How delusional is that?

      At this point I am moving forward with legal action. Considering the amount of money I have tied up in this project as well as the other kickstarter, it pushes it out of small claims court.

      My lawyer will be contacting kickstarter and requesting a list of contact emails for all backers who had physical items in this kickstarter. He will also be requesting a list of all backers in the other project who either had physical items or had pledged for the undelivered game, Roehm to Ruin.

      At that point backers will receive an email encouraging them to join in a class action lawsuit.

      Unfortunately Steven is not going to have much time or money for Disney World anymore after all this is said and done.

      Steven is too busy going to Disney World and posting to the disneyworld subreddit to actually provide an update.

      This is what he has been spending his money on. Look through his reddit posts and you'll see he has been several times in the past year.

      So no, there are no health issues. If there are money issues then it is because he is spending it on stuff like this. And meanwhile, the co-CEO of this game, Shawn Mills,actively blames you, the backer, for their failure.

      Seeing as how BT refuses to comment on the topic anymore we will never know.

      We made his game a reality and we can't even get a straight answer. Everything said up to this point is extremely suspect.

    48. Magne Karlsen on February 3, 2017

      It must be difficult to put those dvds Into those bubble mailers and send them.

      If he is not going to send them why just not say so. At this time there really are no excuses (except maybe health related).

    49. Andrew on February 3, 2017

      I'm only waiting on a standard dvd copy of the game. How many January's must come and go with the promises of "sending out soon"?
