Update #14

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!

      @Vidas That sounds weird. You should be able to get good download speeds on steam. You sure your regional settings in steam are correct ?

      Sinan, if you used the same email address for both, we should catch it automatically. Even if you used a different email address, there is a chance we'll be able to identify it.

      If we add from paypal(20$ for usb) and already have a pledge from KS (i.e 150$ +15$shipping fee) do you merge those??

      Andrew - USB key's are unique keys. So if you add one, your wife will indeed be able to use that one.

      Creator Andrew Nichols on October 11, 2012

      Hey Uber, thanks for the update, a question though. I pledged $115 (95 tier + 20) and was wondering if my commander USB key that was an option was a 2nd game key, or merely an option for a physical form factor for my game. I originally set out to add $20 to my pledge to get the game for my wife as well, but if I can get her copy on a USB key I'd be more than happy to oblige ;)

      Schro, you will be able to do that when the fulfillment site is sent out to everyone. You can add to your pledge at that time, excluding the $95 and $15 limited availability pledges.

      Jeramy, yeah, I have the same problem with that. You can't even use capitals, which is very poor. Uber, would you please allow special characters or even just spaces in names?

      If there was one thing I wish I could do on your forums it would be to use _'s because in recent years my game name has gone from Cpt. KIll-Jack to Cpt_Kill_Jack. But your website only let me use cptkilljack.

      Michael - these updates are automatically sent out to your email of record for Kickstarter. If you're not getting them, check your Kickstarter account settings, and possibly your spam filter, on the off chance it's getting flagged incorrectly as spam.

      Creator gadam07 on October 11, 2012

      You guys should consider selling or licensing your KS fulfillment site to other KS projects to use. I'm sure there are many who could benefit from your work.

      Is there a way to get updates (like this one) by mailing list or RSS feed?
      Perhaps that could be made opt-in on the fulfilment site.
      I like getting my updates the old fashioned way - sent to me, instead of having to poll various places.
      Honestly, I was getting frustrated about no email announcements from Uber re: PA until I checked back here at kickstarter. It doesn't need to be like that.

      J.R. - Correct! That does indeed include the lucky few who got in on the $95 promotional level.

      re: Minis, surely you mean the $95+ tier, since it's supposed to be equivalent to the $100 tier, yes?

      Hey, if you have to go to Kalamazoo to get your stuff, at least you can swing by Bell's for a beer, right? Look on the bright side!
