Tempest Delivery Date Update + First Look at Packaging
Let's get into the updates:
Tempest Delivery Date Update
Last week we updated you all on our Tempest screen trials and tribulations. Happily, that saga ended well, and we now have a suitable screen for Tempest x RepliCade that can handle the beautiful vector graphics without any issues. However, this exercise has delayed our production schedule – not only in the time spent sourcing the right screen, but also in the design (the new screen is larger than originally planned so we need to tool up a few new parts) and tooling of the machine itself.
We now have a revised schedule from our factory and, barring further obstacles, we can now tell you that we expect to be shipping Tempest from China in early November, with delivery out to you all by early December. We know this is later than the August ship window we originally planned, however please be assured that Tempest x RepliCade is now up to our standards.
First look – Tempest Collector Packaging
We are excited to share the first test print of our Tempest packaging with you all. Still many changes to come, but it’s coming along great!
Insert Coin Key Chain
We will be shipping the Insert Coin Key Chain at the end of the month to backers who backed the Insert Coin Key Chain Tier!
Thank you everyone for your patience and support.
