Campaign Update #44 - Another round of the waiting game
Hi there backers,
We're stuck with another round of the waiting game this week as we wait for the next sample to make its way to us. Alistair at Rule & Make has been on the phone to the manufacturers every day to make sure it's moving along and we had hoped to have something in our hands in time for the update today but, alas, it was not to be.
Updated delivery timeline
As you may have noticed, we've been a little hesitant to put an exact timeline together for the game's delivery. Due to the delays we've already had, we didn't want to put an expectation to you as the backer, and then not meet it and have to push it back again. The good news though, is that this waiting IS coming to an end soon. Once we hit GO on the final production run with the manufacturer, we'll be able to put together a timeline for you that is unlikely to change, barring some significant event (i.e. worker strikes, natural disasters, etc...)
With the samples coming through, that day of hitting go on the manufacturing is creeping closer and, once we do have a timeline for you, you can be sure that it will be posted right here, along with our regular weekly update.
Preorders now live
Ever since the campaign ended, we've had a regular stream of people mention that they've missed the campaign and if we plan to offer a way for them to support the project and also get the game.
The team's priority thus far had been to produce a high-quality game first and worry about sales later. Now that everything is with the manufacturer, our team have been able to take a breather, step back, and support the people who want to support us.
Have a friend who's keen for Smiths of Winterforge as well? Missed the Kickstarter but are still following along with the updates and wondering when you can get a copy? Well, good news friend! Preorders are now open.
Note that this version of the game comes with the limited edition box sleeve but does not come with the Kickstarter Exclusive metal coins, pouch, or wooden first player marker, since they are, well…Kickstarter exclusives.
For those that are not already part of the campaign, you can head to https://smithsofwinterforge.com to preorder.
As always, thanks for backing.
- Dylan, Aaron, and the Smiths of Winterforge team
