Have a question?
@creator: will there be a pledge manager at some stage? I've pledged extra hoping to add on a regular arduboy to my special edition and since the special edition will be delayed, maybe they could both be shipped together? Thanks!
Sorry for the delay in the updates, just filled one out! We've been listening to your feedback!
In about a week it'll be a month since the last update. Im sure a new update is coming soon.
Yea an update would be great, even just replying, not a full update but a comment to let us know we're still on track, or not, either way just honesty.
Any updates on how you'll proceed?
Ship hardware, update software later. sounds good to me.
I'm all for waiting a little extra untill the game is fully done.
Please offer a shipping option to include a 'finished' product.
I’d prefer to just hold off until game is ready. Unless its going to be a much longer time than first let on. Id be fine with waiting a month or two

This is a horrible idea. People are going to play, hit a roadblock, feel furstrated, upgrade to full version later, overwrite their save files accidentally, and feel even more frustrated. Not to mention that some backers may be intending this as a present for someone who has no experience of flashing roms on a device and no interest or desire to do so.
If you are going to ship a demo version to keep your delivery time commitments, make it an option in the survey. I, for one, and I suppose many other backers, will prefer waiting a couple more months to get a final products flashed with a full version of the game.
I have the original Arduboy from the last campaign. So I'm in no hurry to get the hardware. In fact, honestly, I'll probably set it up in my display case with my other "collectables." So I'll play the game on an original anyway, most likely.
That one will be a LOT easier to replace if something happens to it! ;-)
I'd rather wait for it to be completely finished.
I have no problem loading the final software myself.
I rather have the game properly developed and loaded into device so delay the shipping if needed. Don't rush to deliver it.
I wouldn't mind waiting for the final version before shipping. Im in no rush to recieve my special editions. I rather the hardware and software be perfect first, also if its the demo, i will have to start over from the beginning once the full game is downloaded. Please take your time
I am with downloading the software ourselves, would rather have the software be perfect then rushed!
I support shipping the hardware now and perfecting the software later... a more perfect game is always better :)
I like the current choice of gold color and think it is good to go with that selection.
Dont worry they most likely just busy. He replied my messages before. And also on the forum too. Super excited to recieve the Special edition with adventure
This is the first campaign I know of that has got no update after being founded...
@Kevin, I sent you a message 5 days ago and still no answer
Amazing. In the end, 4 Ultimate packages were left on the table...
I hope the silence since the funding is Kevin doing all the final planning to provide us with a realistic timetable. I hope this isn't delayed - running into the Chinese New Year would suck.
Stoked to be a part of this campaign, but I think I might have to order a regular edition Arduboy from the store to tide me over until next year. :)
Yeah!!! It is a success!!!
Woohoo! Congratulations to Kevin and Team ARG on an awesome campaign! Looking forward to playing Arduventure soon!
You know... on one hand, I'm thrilled this got funded.
On the other hand... GAH!!!!! Now I have to wait until January to get my hands on it! ;-)
Keep checking back y'all! Been seeing 1-3 standard Special editions pop up every visit back! You still have a chance!!
CANNOT BELIEVE I snagged at Special Plush Edition this morning! Hope someone enjoys the standard special edition I left behind! My life would've been a Void without that plush doll case!
Three special editions open.
Decided to just get the game, giving up a special edition.
Backed the project because it looks quite intriguing. That said, the project description is for a "Limited Special Edition Arduboy" and all the images in the campaign description are for the black special edition. When in fact that actually not the case since the "Limited Edition" is also limited within the project itself and the project itself is actually for the white edition (see how this is misleading for those coming into your project late?). If the project description was for Arduventure with a limited number of special edition than that would be more accurate and in fact what this project actually is. Almost didn't back this project because I quite dislike the way the white one looks but the game itself sounds intriguing. If you do another kickstarter, please make the campaign lead-in description accurately reflect the campaign.
Also was able to get a special edition by checking in a few times - I've added some more money to get a normal edition as well. So looking forward to hold them in my hands :)
I lucked out and found one special edition up for grabs today. I suggest anyone else waiting for one just keep checking back to see if someone retracted or edited their choice. ^_^
I'm the 1200 backer ! Awesome number ! I'm eager to be part of the early player. I wish all the best to the dev team. "Bon courage"
All gone now. Lol
Actually, the one from the comment was claimed within a couple of hours of the comment. There have been a couple that opened up and got claimed again since then...
...and there are currently two open, 'cause I saw someone had let go of an Ultimate, so I traded up from the Special Edition I'd snagged earlier. :D
That special edition is still there if someone wants to upgrade. (Not gonna lie, I like the traditional colors better, personally.)
Letting go special edition...now
It says the ultimate edition has "special packaging" does the special edition also include special packaging?
Just found out about this; wish I'd seen it sooner and could have gotten the Ultimate tier with the black one and the plush!
While I'm certainly going to spend the next four days obsessively checking back in case a black unit opens up, I'd still like to get both the system and the plush. I'm currently backed for the white Arduboy; can I add on $10 to get the plush as well? (I love the fact that his backpack doubles as a carrying case!)
Looks fantastic almost perfect!! Just need a special case or pouch for it!
Love the text was added to the logo, only concern rectified.
If I wanted to add a regular on top of my special edition, would there be extra shipping costs and would the regular ship the same time as the special edition?
THe best way to avoid another game overwriting your savegame is to get another Arduboy to play the other game on...
Hot damn. Switched to special edition
Re: "Save" Functionality
I can't speak to the specifics of this game (not involved in it's development) but on other team A.R.G. games when we have offered "save" functionality it has been to store the data in EEPROM so your data will be saved between turning the Arduboy on/off. You *may* be able to load other games on the Arduboy (as Kevin mentioned, provided they also do not use the same EEPROM space) and then re-load Arduventure and preserve your save data.
Re: "Mute" Functionality
Again, not involved in this effort, but other team A.R.G. games offer a sound toggle (on/off) on the main menu. I would guess that they will implement the same on this game.
Yes! Somebody gave up a special edition tier! Wanted to back this but wanted that black version, the white one wasn't doing it for me. Just wish it was the regular one and not the Ultimate pack with the plushie, mainly because no where to put it, wish it was a key chain or something else instead =/.
Perhaps a tier for 2 regular arduboys loaded with the game?
