Production Update: Fulfillment dates
Sorry for the stretch of radio silence, we've been focused on the last tasks on our lists before this is in the hands of the shipment company!
Here's the great news!
- Most of the add-ons are completed and in the warehouse: Playmats, posters, Broken Token inserts are stashed safely in a cubby-hole waiting!
- The rest of the add-ons are either on the way or are in production: Calendars, bento boxes, sleeves and tokens are all in the final production phase or en route to the warehouse.
- Winter Romance, Doki Doki Beach Volleyball, promo and foil cards and the big boxes are all produced and about to ship out to us.
We will even have a few advanced copies of Winter Romance and Doki Doki on hand at GenCon to show off to you guys, and you can play it at our GenCon party! Another exciting thing is that we are going to be theming the GenCon party this year around Maids and Butlers, to commemorate the release of our first Tanto Cuore expansion that has both boys and girls in it! If you haven't got a ticket for the party yet, you can preorder one by going HERE.
An important note about the promos: The "Hated" promo that we included in the pledge levels will now be included in the game, so we've produced a whole new promo for you! Introducing Ross Allison! Some of our long time fans may have met Ross before. Ross is a real life ghost hunter, and has been a friend of the owner of the company for years, helping out at Pax, Sakuracon, Gencon, and many other conventions. Ross and Eric did a lot of the brainstorming behind Tanto Cuore: Winter Romance initially, so Eric surprised him with this awesome promo card, done in his likeness, and we are making it available to all of our Kickstarter backers. Ross came to Sakuracon in Seattle this year, dressed as a "Winter Butler", in commemoration of the upcoming game - and we think you will agree that the artist did an excellent job of creating this card in his likeness!
So what does all of this mean? Unfortunately, it means that delivery will be delayed until the games have arrived. We anticipate the new fulfillment date being late August/early September, depending on when the container goes on the ship, and you guys will be the first to know as soon as that happens. We're disappointed to need to delay, but are happy that it should only be a short wait before we can start sending everything out to you!
Have a wonderful week everyone!
