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!

    4. Creator RageQuit24 on October 22, 2012

      It's Monday yaaa maybe there is a chance :) Hope I get it today that would make this week awesome.

    5. Creator Joe Ruskey on October 21, 2012

      I think with 44k backers not everyone will get their emails at first.

    6. Creator Zipi on October 20, 2012

      I have not received an email as of this date either.

    7. Creator Zubair on October 20, 2012

      No mail as yet

    8. Creator Garhett Bambrick on October 19, 2012

      I haven't gotten mine either... :-/

    9. Creator Donik on October 18, 2012

      Have not received an e-mail here, either.

    10. Creator RageQuit24 on October 18, 2012

      Next week hopefully to bad we don't have a date or some form of when just that they are working on it. We can only hope lol and keep checking are emails.

    11. Creator Andjohn on October 18, 2012

      Hello PA, I still haven't gotten the mail. It's not in my spam folder.

    12. Creator zeroumus on October 17, 2012

      still have not gotten email, and i have check kickstarter info and spam folder

    13. Creator Zachary Durham on October 17, 2012

      I'm already excited for the soundtrack.

    14. Creator Ken Roger Lindekleiv on October 15, 2012

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

    15. Creator Gord Cluthe on October 15, 2012

      Steam is the preferred method of distribution for me and my gaming crew.

    16. Creator DagothAgahnim(Menarra) on October 15, 2012

      @Travis, they said a while back it will be through Steam, UberNet, and possibly other venues.

    17. Creator Vidas Zilys on October 14, 2012

      steam sucks. it takes longer time to update game on steam then from direct servers :(

    18. Creator Michel Rowinski on October 13, 2012

      I really loved the graphics in the video :-)

    19. Creator travis on October 13, 2012

      So Is the game going to be on steam?

    20. Creator Marc Davies on October 12, 2012

      Kinda wish i never cancelled my paypal account now D: (really wants the miniatures)

    21. Creator Uber Entertainment Inc on October 12, 2012

      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.

    22. Creator Sinan Midillili on October 12, 2012

      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??

    23. Creator Uber Entertainment Inc on October 12, 2012

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

    24. 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 ;)

    25. Creator Rand Chua TL on October 11, 2012

      Waiting to hear a next great update.

    26. Creator John Riggs on October 11, 2012

      Woohoo! Nice to see things coming along. I was worried for a while, it was quiet. Go PA!

    27. Creator Uber Entertainment Inc on October 11, 2012

      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.

    28. Creator Schro on October 11, 2012

      What if I spended 40$ here... can I somehow spend 10$ more to get the Progenitor?

    29. Creator Chris Brown on October 11, 2012

      Oh man, I'm pretty jealous that you guys are having Reaper do the minis. They make a mean mini; I just shelled out a ton of money on their kickstarter recently.

    30. Creator MichaelB on October 11, 2012

      Thanks, I'll check on my settings.
      I look forward to seeing your new site!

    31. Creator James Arthur Crocker on October 11, 2012

      I anxiously await my flair so I can complete my Cheston!

      The other stuff is awesome too, but Cheston needs more sexy.

    32. Creator TheChosenOne on October 11, 2012

      To bad it is not Weta making those statues. :'(
      *telepathically changes Uber's mind*

    33. Creator gadam07 on October 11, 2012

      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?

    34. Creator Jeramy Staub on October 11, 2012

      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.

    35. Creator Uber Entertainment Inc on October 11, 2012

      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.

    36. 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.

    37. Creator Zpelfresne on October 11, 2012

      Good thing I live in Kalamazoo.

    38. Creator MichaelB on October 11, 2012

      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.

    39. Creator Uber Entertainment Inc on October 11, 2012

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

    40. Creator J.R. Raith on October 11, 2012

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

    41. Creator Joshua R on October 11, 2012

      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!
