Check out the first 4 completed Arduventure Special Editions in their packaging! The remaining 700ish units are being completed as we speak and are expected to ship to our office in the USA before February 16th.

Survey for shipping info coming soon!

We will wait until we have tracking confirmation that the bulk shipment is on the way before we issue the survey. This survey will come via email and also be available through the kickstarter website. We will ask for your shipping information here and we hope to have as little gap between the survey and actually shipping.

tldr; 2 weeks!

Delivery times

If you are located in the United States your reward should arrive sometime before the end of February. International backers can expect some time in March. We will issue everyone tracking information via USPS.

Downloading Arduventure

If you are receiving an Arduboy pre-loaded with Arduventure you will also get a download option available to you so you can change the game and then put back Arduventure on the device.

Backers who selected the software only will get this same opportunity, but will be waiting just a little longer to reward the people who made a greater contribution to this campaign.

Finally, once the game has been distributed to all backers we will make it available for everyone to download but we have yet to set an exact date for this.

In other Ardu-news...

We sent a couple units to the folks over at Linus Tech Tips (YouTube's biggest PC enthusiast channel) to review for their sub $100 tech reviews and we are currently awaiting their video. But it seems like it may be coming soon because they posted this positive review of at least the USB-cable on twitter!

This is really exciting stuff for us at the Ardu-headquarters, we're big fans! (Ok I'm done with the Ardu-puns)

Thank you!

We have looked at the metrics and it seems a majority of people who backed this campaign are already Arduboy owners! Thank you so much for your continued support! Let us know if there is anything we can do to help you out with anything at all regarding your Arduboy experience!
