Progress Thursdays #56

16 likes

While 56 is not the sexiest number out there, it marks a very important update.

This is our last Progress Thursday. Devon ships his last US orders this week and all Canadian next week. 

And we are done! Sort of.

Next week we start shipping out replacements and missing bits. That should go fast as there is not that many cases reported. 

We are closing up the Supreme Genesis cards and 4 out of 5 models are sculpted and waiting to be cast. 5th is close to the finish line as well.

We still have some backers missing in action. Whenever we see a social media update and somebody says they are still waiting for their order, we run a cross-check and often find out that some of the orders are not locked in (underpaid etc.). Hopefully we will get you all sorted out fast so you can enjoy the game.

Final questions: Was it worth it? Absolutely yes. Without you, it would take us years to push the game forward in that way. Was it easy? Absolutely no. We've learnt a lot and between our dayjobs managed to get some schooling in project management :). Are we millionaires now? Rather not, in fact, I am putting together a document with our ups and downs and financial breakdown. It might hold some interest for some of you.

What's next? Webstore is almost there, it will come with a Rewards/Loyalty system, vouchers and other cool stuff. Retail - we are building up a retail-friendly short list of products.

Are we thinking about new Kickstarters? Yes. Actually two of them. Next one will be an easy project to manage as we have a locked in number of miniatures, profiles that are already being playtested and no rulebooks and 150 cards to re-work :)

You might have seen the concepts for Supreme Alliance floating around. 

(that is not the entire team btw, we have some surprises for you)

The sketches were amazing but they produced even more amazing models. I can't wait  to share them with you. You realize that the mightiest heroes in the history of Pulp City need enemies? I will keep you in the dark for a while. Keep your eyes peeled.

This is the last Progress Thursday but not the last update in this KS. Enjoy the game and once again, thank you for being with us on this amazing ride!

Shipping Update

With the remaining orders due to hit Devon no later than Monday next week we anticipate all USA orders should be finished shipping by next Friday the 17th. Canadian orders will follow directly after and are expected to finish shipping by the end of April.

Model Assembly Note

Many folks are concerned they are missing Gravito Grimm’s hand. The hand is attached to the tab at the bottom of the model. So please double check that before letting us know it is missing.

PDF Rules

A number of folks did not download their copy of the free PDF rules and the time limit has expired to do so. If you didn’t get your copy of the PDF rules please send us a message on Kickstarter that includes your current email and we will be happy to get you another copy.

Rock Hard

What comes next...
What comes next...

So what’s bigger and meaner than Stone Hawk and Grimmrock put together? What towering pile of muscle is this on the horizon? Stay tuned…

Progress Thursdays #54

Howdy Citizens, 

First, have a great time celebrating Easter, return of the spring and sun or anything else that makes you happier in your life!

A couple of quick updates:

European HQ: We shipped everything. We are gathering your feedback and will ship out all missing items. 

US HQ: Still in progress. Devon is working hard. We are almost there, though there is still a fair amount of packages.

Missing & Damaged parts: We will have a 1 month window from the last package to report any missing or damaged items. So please make sure you report them to us. After that time, we need to close the project's budget and further corrections won't be available.

What next: If you are worried about your package, please start with checking whether you have no unresponded correspondence from us. There is still a fair amount of backers that had not a/ sent their reports b/ paid for ordered extras.

We will make a one more attempt to get back to each one of you. If we don't get a response, there are two options:

- If you have your pledge and shipping covered, but no extra choices made, we will ship you the most basic pledge, no extras, to the address registered with KS.

- if you have uncovered bills, we will leave 2-month period of grace. If we won't hear from you, we will consider this a done deal. Again, from the project management perspective, we need to be realistic.


And to soften the message, here's some bugs for the spring!

Progress Update #53

Shipping Continues

Shipping is still in progress. On the EU and ROW front a number of orders were not shipped in the first wave and are being sent out now. Second wave is also soon to begin so if you don't know if you have filled out a Pledge Manager now is the time to contact us at Kickstarter (at) Pulpmonsters.com.

US orders continue to go out at a good pace. A number of orders were not received in the US and those orders will be shipping out Monday from Poland. Once all US orders are out the door we will begin shipping to Canada. At this rate I anticipate most orders to be out the door in two weeks or so.  

Some Model Issues to Address

1) The Cyclops Monster head with multiple "moustache" tentacles or catfish whiskers will not be replaced due to damage. There is no way to cast it and ship it without a good chance of breakage. We just can't amend that error. The sculptor designed it more to be looked at than shipped. Fortunately repairs are easy to do for a mildly skilled hobbyist. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

2) Aurelius' smoke coming from the vial. It is a separate piece as of now. It simply does not work as a one-piece mold. Smoke is now optional, you can glue it on or leave it off at your discretion. Again this is a simple fix for any hobbyist.

Thanks Again

Just wanted to take another moment to thank you all for your patience and goodwill throughout this process. We have had more setbacks and bumps than we dreamed of. Murphy's Law has been applied to us with a vengeance. But for ever set back you guys have been supportive and positive and it has really kept this team going.

I have maintained for years the Pulp City has the best fans of any game out there. So thank you for your support. If you haven't yet joined our forums now is a great time to do so. Also don't forget to sign up for our fan run Miniature Exchange: http://forum.pulp-city.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2980

We are sorry for the delay in the weekly update, but a lot of things have been happening with Pulp Monsters as we continue with Kickstarter fulfillment, and work on the new web-store. The new web-store will have a fresher appearance and will have all the necessary safeguards for transactions. Once fulfilment is complete, then we can look to stock the new items in-store which will be another exciting development for us.
 

We have been able to read some very positive things as backers have begun to receive their pledge rewards which is great; those positive stories help us and hopefully will help the Pulp City brand grow, which in turn will allow us to do more with the game – so feel free to share those good stories guys! It has been fantastic especially to see the first painted minis that are as a result of the Kickstarter. 

We are aware that some backers are still awaiting their rewards, and shipments continue to go out. If you have not yet received your reward(s) and want an update, please email us; it is better for us, and therefore you as we try and resolve any issues, than trying to round up messages via social media of Kickstarter message system. The contact email is: kickstarter (at) pulpmonsters dot com

Finally, we are pleased to show off Rath (picture above, along with Dr. Warlock and Bramble), another of our Supreme Genesis backer’s concepts, a pretty bad-ass Supreme to say the least! Card files will very soon to the Supreme Genesis backers before the shortly head off for printing. 

Thanks, Leon and the Pulp Monsters team.
