Hi TAKEDOWN community, 

Christian here. First off, I want to apologize for not engaging the community over the past few weeks. I had a very sick cherished family member that unfortunately ended up passing away while I was working to organize long-term care for her, and I just didn’t have the bandwidth to think about work. That being said, here is an update: 


Physical copies of the game and the final physical rewards have SHIPPED from the printing factory in Florida! Once we receive them, we’ll be working with our fulfillment company to ship them out to you. The actual printing process took longer than we expected, but are happy to be getting these out to you! Additional Steam codes will be provided with physical copies, which you can redeem as a gift if you like. 


Over the past seven months, we have released eight major patches, several hotfix updates, and tons of free DLC for TAKEDOWN. We hope that our dedication to TAKEDOWN has shown through, and reflects our deep gratitude to our supporters and our community. We are currently working on a postmortem for TAKEDOWN, where we will share with you the details on hows and whys of what went right, what went wrong, and lessons we learned for the future. Thanks again for your support, we hope this community will remain strong into the future.

      My thoughts go out to your family as you find in your hearts the celebration of her life, it's never easy saying goodbye.

      Thanks for the update, Christian, and I'm sorry for your loss. I wish you and your family well.

      That postmortem sounds great. One thing I'd love to see is some financial stuff. If you want to keep the numbers private, that's fine of course, but it would be nice to hear how well the game caught on post-kickstarter, how successful you consider the project to be, and the like.

      What good are 5,000 patches if a game is still a buggy mess with broken AI? First and last time you'll succeed in a Kickstarter.

      I take it there is no hope of this ever coming to PS3
