      Sorry, Cory. That's so disappointing. I am happy to help you in any way to get this restarted. Looking forward to play testing!

      Thats a bummer. Was looking forward to this one. Any chance you could keep us in the loop and let us know when you plan to relaunch?

    3. Cory Scanlan (Vorpal Chainsword Games) 2-time creator on May 22

      Thanks for the kind words and PMs you guys have been sending our way since we had to cancel. I really appreciate the understanding, and I when we return I assure you the Chronomega campaign is going to be so much more awesome!

      For those of you that were asking about adding the Deluxe KS edition of Ravingspire to the Chronomega campaign pledge, that is of course no longer possible. However as a workaround I recommend checking out Ravingspire at The Game Steward. They're a really friendly online retailer who picked up a LOT of copies of wood box Deluxe Ravingspire during the original Kickstarter, and I just checked and they still have some available. :D

      Game on everybody!

      Sorry that you had to cancel, but looking forward to the relaunch at some point. Good luck moving the game forward and hopefully the feedback and extra time make for a better game.

      I too would be interested in your previous game and would likely up my pledge to accomodate it - great idea folks.

    6. Henry So on May 17

      If you do make Ravingspire available here, I'd like to know how big the box is, to see if it would fit on my shelves. (And yes, that implies I would be interested, too)

      I would also be interested in Ravingspire Deluxe Edition if there are any left.

      @ Aat Niehot how can they lower shipping? shipping a game internationally @ 30$ is cheap. i sell on ebay all the time and shipping a small box can be over 30$

      Thanks for the update.
      This project needs a boost to get it up the Kicktraq hotness list. Only trending to $34000 now. Any suggestions? Social stretch goals? Thunderclap?
      Even chat here gets the project noticed on kicktraq.

      Interesting game, but a 30 dollar shipping fee to europe is crazy.
      If you can lower this i am in.

      @Cory Sounds great about the possibility of adding on Ravingspire. The extra benefit of bumping up the total for this project is nice too :)

    15. Cory Scanlan (Vorpal Chainsword Games) 2-time creator on May 13

      Hey Donald and Michael - Thanks for the kind words and glad you’re back! Don thank you for being our first backer, that’s awesome. And Michael I loved the Unboxing Bros video for Ravingspire. Keep up the great vids!

      Henry So - That is a very fair question, as the Ravingspire deluxe edition is gigantic! Fear not for your shelves this go round, as the Chronomega box will be much more standard-size for a boardgame. I don’t want to commit to dimensions yet since we’re currently in discussions for additional box adds, but at its absolute maximum size it won’t be larger than Mansions of Madness if that helps. ;)

      Panagiotis and Jay - Both of you guys have asked me about Ravingspire deluxe edition add-ons for those that may have missed it and I think its a great idea. We’re inspecting our remaining (very limited) inventory of the deluxe KS version now, and crunching numbers (shipping estimates), but I’ll ping you guys directly if we can do that and I’ll then do an official update about it. I think offering the last of the deluxe Kickstarter editions of Ravingspire out to Chronomega Kickstarter backers is a fantastic idea.

      I am back, and wow Ravingspire is freaking amazing! This game looks as much amazing as Ravingspire did! I am hooked!!! Take my money!!!!

    17. Henry So on May 13

      Approximately how big will the box be? I may have to drop out if it's too big to fit in my shelf space.

      A lot of project communities are working hard to get projects up the hotness list. We should be too. Project is trending to $66000 atm, not bad, could always be better!

      Reading the reviews on amazon they all mention the rules being difficult to follow and to watch a how to play video instead, using the rules book as a reference.
      Do you plan to release the rules book for backers to have a look at and feedback to you?

      A presence set up this year, does that mean this won't be eu friendly?
      Ravingspire is on amazon.com and won't ship to the UK.

      Hello everyone!
      I have returned as well!
      In fact, I so enjoyed Ravingspire that I did something I've never done before. I'm backer number 1 on this project! Woohoo!

      Too bad about not getting a riveted box, that would have looked super sweet. I can't wait to see what you all have in store for us though.

    25. Cory Scanlan (Vorpal Chainsword Games) 2-time creator on May 11

      Hi Jay and Mantichor – Thanks for the suggestions and enthusiasm guys! I’ve got feelers out to those companies you mentioned now, and we’re doing some paperwork looking into warehouses in the EU as well. Can’t promise anything yet, but I’m very hopeful to get an EU presence set up this year.
      And yeah Jay there are only a few copies of Ravingspire left. Looking on Amazon right now there’s just 7 left before the first printing is sold out!

      Hey Mad_Yan – Thanks! And while we’ve been approached about rules translations for Ravingspire second printing already, and are going to look into Chronomega as well, the Kickstarter print will very likely just be English for the first print.

      @Cory: You could/should contact Happyshops in Germany - they are willing to fulfill also for smaller companies!

    32. Cory Scanlan (Vorpal Chainsword Games) 2-time creator on May 9

      Troy, Chad, Fro, Andrew, Daniel, Steve, Paul and marc - I’m glad you guys are back and willing to give us another go! Thank you so much! And thanks for the positive comments!

      Frederic and Hunter - I hear you guys, and sympathize. International shipping really is expensive from the US (and we have a lot of numbers from our previous Kickstarter to work with), and without an EU partner it is not nearly as easy for a small US-based company like ours to get into direct-ship EU warehouses as it sounds like online. Still we are trying to make headway in that direction. As for the early bird tier being US only shipping, we did that for logistical reasons on our end. I see now how that could be perceived as insensitive to our buds overseas, and I apologize about that.

      Andrew, Daniel, Marc, and dv8er - We do want to do a themed box for the game like we did with Ravingspire, but when we priced metal-riveted game boxes the estimates crashed us right back down to earth. ;) But we still want to do something in that regard, and gameplay tutorial footage is coming soon. Stay tuned for updates!

      @creator, I'm backing the project, Ravinspire is great, but I'm very concerned about the sparse content included in the base game. Your pictures of the game include SG material not included in the game at the moment. I understand the picture would look bare without them, but banking on reaching SGs to fill out the game may be risky.

    35. Paul Gorecki on May 9

      @Marc. I got the experience of play testing the primary game. And I was quite impressed, we didn't play with any of the SGs and it was still great. The game moved quickly, there were 5 of us playing and the game got pretty frantic when it came down to the end and the race to the control system. The game played quicker than Ravingspire and just as enjoyable, but then again we had a lot going on with 5 players. Personally, I am excited to find out if we get to the alien threat mini-game. This mini-game looks awesome.

      I will stay here just in case this GREAT game comes more attractive to EU backers.
      This game deserves the best, it seems very unique.

    39. The Hunter on May 9

      I can understand that you don't want to take risks on the shipping cost, but I can not understand THE ONLY USA EB pledge. It's only 5$, but it also a bad movement on this campaign.
      Seems that they are saying, "we don't want your money, so we put this barriers on your way".

      Hello. The game look great, but 30$ shipping for 60$ game to France seem very very high. Is the box so big and heavy that it justify this shipping price ?

      I'd love to see the game actually being played. I'm in right now cos I can see there's something there (and Ravingspire turned out amazingly), but it's difficult to imagine exactly how it'll play!

      Also, are we looking at a standard cardboard box this time round, or do you have something special in mind again?! :-D
