      Do you ever feel a little guilty about this little scam of yours?

    2. Creator Thomas Eldredge on November 8, 2014

      Yeah- I spelled loser wrong... so what...

    3. Creator Martin H. on October 18, 2013

      Hey ... since You Never delivered the game You could do me a favour ... how about giving way a nubby for free ? I tried to order one but the shipping is 39$ to europe 0o

      so this would satisfy me for not getting the game but only the ball.

    4. Creator Thomas Eldredge on August 20, 2013

      SCAM!!!

      I want my $25 back you unscrupulous no good loosers!

    5. Creator Thomas Eldredge on July 15, 2013

      I just wanted to say I love this game! It's the most innovative flight simulator available for the Android and the Sphero controls are just amazing!

      Oh wait... that never happened because this campaign was a complete SCAM!!!

      I'm just beating a dead horse here but hey... this dead horse took $25 from me so I'm going to keep throttling it for awhile.

    6. Creator Thomas Eldredge on July 8, 2013

      Another week of silence... astonishing.

      I don't expect we'll ever get a legitimate excuse for this shameful conduct, but I'd sure love to hear it anyway!

      "We ask all of you to please be just a bit more patient and expect to see the game ready in 3-5 more weeks"

      It's now been 7 weeks since that comment was posted. No followup, no updates.

      Shame on you for using this platform so irresponsibly.

      "We ask all of you to please be just a bit more patient and expect to see the game ready in 3-5 more weeks"

      It has now been 5 weeks since that comment was posted.

    9. Creator Thomas Eldredge on June 10, 2013

      @Duncan RAY I think this campaign is essentially dead, If you've heard anything from the leads, please post because the leads are being highly irresponsible in their communication with their contributors.

      I've never received any emails from the leads even thought they claimed to have messaged me multiple times. I've emailed as requested and received no reply. I never got my reward and there have been no official updates since December, totally unacceptable.
      I'm concerned something may have happened to the leads, or else this is just a flat out scam.

    10. Creator Duncan RAY on June 10, 2013

      Skylar,
      Still waiting for the "Sphero Glide" game to appear somewhere.

    11. Creator Thomas Eldredge on May 31, 2013

      I emailed you as requested. Nearly 4 weeks later, still no response, no reward, no updates, no software. This is irresponsible and unfair to your backers. I'm surprised I seem to be the only one still keeping up.

      I am also very concerned when I look at the kicktraq stats and see a $5,760 spike in one day (11.14.2013) and on that same day only 2 backers signed on. I find it hard to believe an unconnected backer would contribute so much individually. And I do the math on the donation levels and see that multiplying donors*pledge levels only account for about 1/2 the goal. If 1/2 your funding comes from a single, dubious source, then this is not really 'crowd funded' at all and indicates fraud. I realize the severity of this accusation- but you have had ample time to preempt this. No official updates for 6 months after the estimated delivery should make anyone suspicious and start digging.

      All I ever expect from campaigns is to be kept informed, that is why I back campaigns, to be part of the process or at least kept in the loop. For goodness sake post an official update on this campaign! How hard is it to post an update and say "Sorry, It's taking longer than expected"? I would have been silent and patient with some form of official communication, but this has gone on long enough.

      At this point I severely regret contributing to this campaign and it will negatively effect my decision to support future game projects.

      FYI - I'm moving shortly so the address I sent you a month ago will not be valid after tomorrow. I don't really want the t-shirt anymore so don't worry about it. Just post an update for crying out loud. That will suffice to shut me up.

    12. Creator Skylar Graika on May 7, 2013

      We have been working long hours on ensuring this game is flawless for its release. We have discovered that 3D games with an open world require an incredible amount of adaptive techniques to enhance the performance on mobile devices. We are thrilled to say that this game will be unlike any other game available for the Sphero and has been rigorously tested with Sphero to make it skillful while in flight. We ask all of you to please be just a bit more patient and expect to see the game ready in 3-5 more weeks

    13. Creator Skylar Graika on May 7, 2013

      Thomas, I have sent you several messages now in regards to both the reward we shipped you and when the game will be finished. To avoid further miscommunication, I ask that you re send me your shipping information to my email: sgraika127@gmail.com. I'm very sorry you have felt so mislead.

    14. Creator Thomas Eldredge on May 7, 2013

      No updates since December, no reward, no game. This is ridiculous. This is without a doubt the single most disappointing campaign I've contributed to.

    15. Creator Thomas Eldredge on February 21, 2013

      I have not received my reward or any communication from the leads. Please respond.

    16. Creator Philipp Dümpelmann on February 13, 2013

      Finally arrived in Germany without any taxes. Thanks a lot.

    17. Creator David Sailer on February 6, 2013

      Hey Philipp, I'm from Germany too, and today I got mail from the customs authority.
      Now I must send a bill (Credit Card statement) to them, so that they can calculate the duty I have to pay.
      That can last another week, as experienced. Cant wait!
      Greetz from Germany,
      David

    18. Creator Philipp Dümpelmann on February 6, 2013

      Same here. Still waiting for the package to arrive in Germany.

    19. Creator Anthony Gallichand on February 6, 2013

      Hello Skylar.

      I didn't receive my package so far. Is that normal? I am in Canada. I supposed it should have arrived by now... Anybody can confirm they received it already in the eastern region of Canada?

    20. Creator Martin H. on February 3, 2013

    21. Creator Skylar Graika on January 30, 2013

      We are still finishing up with Sphero Glide. The game will be free to download on the app store by the end of March.

    22. Creator Craig Telega on January 30, 2013

      Received my sphero and t shirt. How do I access Glide? Thanks.

    23. Creator Anthony Gallichand on January 24, 2013

      Alright! Thanks Skylar :D

    24. Creator Anthony Gallichand on January 24, 2013

      Alright! Thanks Skylar :D

    25. Creator Skylar Graika on January 24, 2013

      Hey everyone! Your gifts have been shipped. Unfortunately I was not provided the tracking #'s but they should be arriving by next week. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    26. Creator David Sailer on January 24, 2013

      Can you send a tracking number per E-Mail or will there be no tracking number?

    27. Creator Skylar Graika on January 17, 2013

      Shipments are ready to be sent out. The T-shirts have still not arrived unfortuneately, I will leave a comment as soon as they arrive and the packages are sent out. Thanks for your patience.

    28. Creator John V on January 17, 2013

      Any update on shipment?

    29. Creator Skylar Graika on January 5, 2013

      Happy new year everyone! Sorry for the delay on shipment. The spheros will be shipped out next week along with the t-shirts. There was a delay due to the printing manufacture being closed for the holidays. If you have any other questions please let us know.

    30. Creator Martin H. on January 5, 2013

      Any news? Do you have any news on when we can expect our spheros?

    31. Creator David Sailer on December 25, 2012

      Hey,
      Merry christmas to everyone :)
      Have the Sphero's already been shipped?
      Would be cool to know if there is a tracking number that you could send us!
      greets from Germany,
      David

    32. Creator Skylar Graika on December 18, 2012

      Hi Phillipp,

      We will be sending the backings gifts within the next week. Thanks!

    33. Creator Philipp Dümpelmann on December 18, 2012

      When will you ship the items? Will you send us the tacking no?

    34. Creator Anthony Gallichand on December 10, 2012

      I have a smartphone using Android so I really look forward to the milestone for it :P But I didn't restrain myself to pledge 100$ and get the sphere in the process! :D

      Congratulations for the project (and for the funds collect, of course) ;)

    35. Creator Zoe Caggiano on December 8, 2012

      I have had a sphero for 3 months

    36. Creator Zoe Caggiano on December 8, 2012

      I REALY want this to be a success

    37. Creator Skylar Graika on December 8, 2012

      Sphero can be used with any of the Sphero apps on the market. A lot of the apps are really cool! Also, you can download Sphero's SDK from https://developer.gosphero.com/ and start building your own apps! That's what we did.

    38. Creator Amit Sanyal on December 6, 2012

      I just heard about this a couple days ago. Sounds really cool! Can the ball in the $99 level be used with any of the apps or is it only for glide? Thanks!

    39. Creator Skylar Graika on November 1, 2012

      Who here has heard of the Sphero before?
