A match made in metal and fulfillment updates
Hello again Backers!
The fulfillment site is making good progress, and the first test mails have gone out to make sure that everything is working smoothly. Over the coming weeks, everyone will start to get their emails to go to the website. This site will facilitate fulfillment of keys and physical goods over the duration of the project.
There will be a chance to add additional keys when you go through the fulfillment website, and for people in the physical goods level of backing, additional t-shirts and USB key-fobs. Until that time, you can still go to www.planetaryannihilation.com and add to your backer level if there were other rewards you want that you didn’t get initially. Shortly after the fulfillment site goes live, those PayPal backing tiers will no longer be available, so don’t wait!
Why a fulfillment site? Glad you asked, and here are the main reasons:
- Kickstarter and PayPal: A Kickstarter survey won’t allow us to get all the important information from the PayPal backers. And there are a lot of PayPal backers in the mix!
- A year is a long time! What if your address changes before the game is about to launch and final backer rewards are about to ship? A fulfillment site means, before we’re about to ship anything, we can send out a mail to everyone to make sure your shipping information is up to date, and that the cool items you’re waiting for don’t get sent to Kalamazoo. Unless you live in Kalamazoo, of course.
- Linked to your UberNet account. So even if your email address changes, you’re still able to update your information.
We have two additional updates to provide about the game and backing as well! First off, Jon and Steve talked about the progress of the game during the Super Monday Night Combat live stream, and you can watch that here if you missed it the first time: http://www.twitch.tv/uberchannel/b/334446805
Finally, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be working with Reaper Miniatures to create the commander miniatures that are part of the $100 backer level and up (excluding the digital only levels)! We are incredibly excited to be working with such a talented and passionate crew as Reaper, and look forward to sharing the progress on the minis in the coming months as we get real life (miniature) commanders! This backer level is still available for a little while longer through PayPal at www.planetaryannihilation.com, but when it’s gone, it’s gone. These miniatures are exclusive to the Kickstarter/PayPal backers.
Some ways to stay connected, in addition to these updates:

Thanks again for all your support. It’s hard to express in words how excited we are about building this game that you all have made possible.
Stay tuned, more coming soon!
