      We didn't give your money to Belize even though I've heard it's lovely this time of year.

      We spent the money on backer rewards and this ridiculous game and we'll have updates on both (emphasis on the outstanding backer orders -- about 40 of them) in the New Year. Sorry for the delayed responses! Hope all of you Backeroos have a great New Year.

      I think the project creators "kickstarted in the butt" all of my money to Belize...

      It has been a little while since the last update. Are you planning a New Year's Post or Holiday one? What phase is the project in?

      What's up, Buckaroos? Let's get an update for the holidays, huh...!

      I’m a total dummy and just noticed I never received my mug. Am I way to late? I’m way to late aren’t I?

    6. Daniel Bernard on October 26

      Still using my mug daily at work.
      No one suspects a thing.

    7. John Warren Collaborator on July 15, 2017

      No, @drifterofhell, thank YOU for being patient and rad.

      Hi guys, I was so excited about my True Buckeroo mug that I was telling a friend about it. She was devastated that she missed out on the chance to become a backeroo herself. Is there any chance that we'll be able to order additional goodies for our friends who wish they could go back in time and become backeroos?

    10. John Warren Collaborator on July 5, 2017

      Hey everyone! Just confirming there are 11 orders of pre-orders (folks who ordered items outside of the Kickstarter itself) that are shipping this week after being missed by our order sorting system (i.e. I probably didn't understand I needed to make a different order segment for them but it's kind of unclear). If you needed a reshipment from the past couple of weeks those will also probably go out with this push. Thanks for your patience, backeroos!

      Sure thing! Thanks for the help!

    12. John Warren Collaborator on June 30, 2017

      @drifterofhell also welcome to email me lmao

    13. John Warren Collaborator on June 30, 2017

      Hey @drafterofhell we had a batch of orders not get pushed through properly -- I'm going to see if you're part of that group and get back to you. In the meantime, will you email with the email address you used to order?

      Hi I haven't received any word on my mug, will I get an email when it is shipped?

      Thank you John! Now I can prove love is real for years with ease!

    16. John Warren Collaborator on June 5, 2017

      Hey Backeroos! The mugs are both dishwasher safe and conventional microwave oven safe! Enjoy your clean and toasty mugs!

    17. John Warren Collaborator on June 3, 2017

      I've asked about microwave safe, as well.

    18. John Warren Collaborator on June 3, 2017

      Hi Sydney! I believe they are but let me get in touch with the manufacturer and I'll get back as soon as I hear from them. Thanks!

    19. Sydney S

      Hello! I am very sorry if this has been answered in a very obvious place. I received my mug and want everyone to know that I am a true buckeroo that supports love being real but I also want to engage in proper mug maintenance. Are the mugs dishwasher safe?

    20. John Warren Collaborator on May 17, 2017

      Hey Nickie! Doesn't look like they've shipped yet. Will investigate and let y'all know. You should get a Backerkit email when they leave the facility but I'll make an update when the first group ships. Thanks.

    21. Nickie Wild on May 17, 2017

      Y'all haven't sent out physical rewards yet, have you? Just checking.

    22. John Warren Collaborator on May 12, 2017

      Hi Erik! We just sent out instructions for the first time so check the email address you used for the campaign! Thanks!

    23. ERIK LARA on May 11, 2017

      Hi I did not receive reward in the mail Yet. Just wondering About Bigfoot Pirate. Do I send photo or something?

    24. John Warren Collaborator on April 20, 2017

      Hi Katherine just email me at with your updated deets and I'll take care of it. Thanks!

    25. Katherine on April 20, 2017

      Hello, I recently moved apartments and was wondering if there was a way I can change my address on the backer survey so I can make sure my True Buckaroo mug makes it to the right place?

    26. Zoë Quinn Creator on February 18, 2017

      Arthur - The window will open soon, and we will keep it open as long as we possibly can. You're likely in the clear, and those photos sound awesome :D

      Vainamoinen - We are cutting together the latest Behind The Scenes video, including video of us meeting Dr. Tingle and his feelings on the game :)

      Love you all Backeroos - big update soon (wanted to have it for valentine's day, but woah nelly we are workin hard over here on the game itself <3)

    27. Vainamoinen on February 18, 2017

      "Real Life Friendship Achieved" backer update please! :)

      Hi gang,

      I'm in the Bigfoot Pirate crew and just want to make sure of a couple of things:

      a) Has the window for us to submit our pictures for the Tingler covers opened up yet? (I haven't received anything to suggest it has but wanted to be sure.)

      b) How long will it stay open for once it does open? I had some really nice portrait shots of me proving love is real done lately which could work great for the cover, but if the deadline's likely to be tight I might need to check in with the photographer to see if it can be processed on time.

      rock butt is a bad butt?

    30. John Warren Collaborator on February 9, 2017

      Dear Jimmy,

      I am as impressed by this suggestion as I am embarrassed we hadn't thought of it.

      Suggestion: Instead of addressing the BACKERS as BUCKEROOS in updates.... maybe BACKEROOS?

    32. Zoë Quinn Creator on January 12, 2017

      @Will O'Neill: we are just waiting on Backerkit to send out surveys to everyone now that the holiday backlog stopped murdering our physical rewards manufacturer (which look great!) and there's one small thing I'm waiting to hear back on from a ~*really cool mysterious source*~ before we do a huge update!

    33. WZOGI
      on January 12, 2017

      Happy New Year! Would love to get an update and hear how things are coming along, and if the team is on track to release in February. :)

    34. John Warren Collaborator on November 30, 2016

      I believe we can accommodate! Gildan is one of the options we have at our disposal. When surveys go out in the next couple of weeks, we'll make sure buckaroos have plenty of choices!

    35. Matt Wiseman
      on November 30, 2016

      Gildan is a good brand for quality and size options

    36. Matt Wiseman
      on November 30, 2016

      Thanks Buckeroo John! My size is either a 5x or a 3xXt. I'm a buckeroo over 7' tall so the 3xXt is actually my size, but 5x's are easier to find and have the right length even though I swim in them.

    37. John Warren Collaborator on November 22, 2016

      Hey buckaroo name of Matt Wiseman, right now our shirts go up to 3X, but we're looking at going even larger. Will let everyone know once we know for sure!

    38. Matt Wiseman
      on November 22, 2016

      Probably late to ask this, but what sizes are the unicorn butt cop shirts available in again? I'm a rather large buckeroo is why I ask

      My butt is tingling already. I always knew Love Is Real and I can not wait to experience it first hand! <3

    40. Lucy Stratton on November 16, 2016

      Conrgats on the successful KS! I can't wait to play the game when it comes out :D

    41. Merlon Crenel on November 16, 2016

      Yay, funded by Real Buckaroos!

    42. Kerry Kraemer on November 16, 2016

      LOVE IS VERY REAL! In these dark times this is the love and joy that we need! So excited for this journey of love with all my fellow buckaroos! <3

    43. Josh Roseman on November 16, 2016

      In this darkest timeline, Dr Tingle and Zoe remind us that LOVE IS REAL, and now we will all get to experience that. Looking forward to it.

    44. Benjamin Pavey on November 16, 2016

      LOVE is REAL as this getting funded shows

    45. Lee Brokas on November 15, 2016

      Had to decrease my pledge (I am geuinely sad for this) because the US to AUD exchange rate is ridiculously crippling and my previous $15 pledge would cost me nearly $20, which I don't have.

      Really wanted that level, but just glad to be putting my support behind such an amazing project. So happy this got funded, and looking forward to the fun.

      Thanks Zoe and Dr Tingle. :D
