Shipping update! / Surprise gift #3 / Language editions

Posted by Awaken Realms (Creator)

Hey Everyone! 

Time for another update from the front! There some good news, there are some bad news (nothing major thou, so rest on easy!) ;)  

Lets get into it! 

Shipping started in Asia / Europe! 

Ok, so last week first backers from Europe / Asia / Rest of the World started receiving their games! Quite exciting time for all of us! 

We would really like to thank you all of you that took time to make a picture / post it and share your impressions (that are really positive so far!). You guys are the best! 

If you will had opportunity already to check out the game, make sure to rate it on BGG! This really helps to spread the word!

Also - if you will have any problems with components - you can post a ticket HERE and our Customer Service will quickly get in touch with you! 

Worldwide shipping status 

USA  / Canada

Ok, so all games got onto the ships without any bigger problems (one ship departure was delayed by 2 days, but estimated timeline was not changed). 

So generally we have containers at 2 different ships, that we can track on the link below:

Long Beach Trader 

HONOLULU BRIDGE

We will be shipping from Florida, so it needs to go through Panama Canal. 

Overall, we had a very serious talk with our partners in US and they let us know, that it might be very hard to get the games to you guys before Christmas - mostly due to VERY possible delays at unloading from ship / customs etc. 

It is not 100% confirmed and we still hope we will ship before Christmas - but we are informing you guys of the status as soon as we got news. But generally end of the year is quite realistic in current expectation with first weeks of January as the worst case scenario. 

On our side, we are doing everything we can to make sure the process will go without problem and will keep you up to date if anything will pop up! 

Europe 

First 2 containers came to Poland at beginning of the week and went through duties without any troubles (whole unloading and duty process took 3-4 days) and that gives us a lot of hope for future containers, that it will go as smooth ;) 

So 3rd container was expected to come Monday, but there is a delay and we are awaiting information how long it will take (so far we do not know, but we hope for 1-2 days). 4th container is expected to come 3rd of December and the last one 10th of December. So generally we expect that everyone from Europe should have delivered their games by 15th of December. 

We were shipping containers as soon as 1 full container was produced to send the games ASAP, this is why they are spread week by week in delivery ;).

Also - important info - if you did not received tracking - do not worry! This is natural at this stage, you can start worry after 15th of December ;) 

Asia

All 2-wave backers with English version of the game should already recieve game / or tracking. If you have not - contact our Customer Support! 

Australia and Oceania 

There is a delay with the container, but again, nothing serious. We expected last week for container to arrive, now we estimate this week and shipping to start next week. 

Rest of the World 

Some of the location we have already shipped games from Europe with UPS (like Saudi Arabia) but others must be shipped with National post office (for you guys not to pay extremely high customs, that was our previous experience with UPS - like for example Israel) - they should be shipped by the 15th of December as well! 

Language Edition 

Quick update about Language editions. We have received information from Rebel that everything is on track so far with the translation process and we have also got information about partners they have picked for those editions that we can officially share! 

  • French - Funforge
  • Italian - Cranio Creations
  • German - Asmodee Germany
  • Polish - Rebel  
  • Spanish - Asmodee Spain

From our side, we can tell that we are receiving a lot of question about the rules and from our experience this is a good sign that translating team is working hard on the files! 

Surprise #3 - Etherfields deck 

Ok guys, time to reveal another item from the extra surprise box. This box is composed of additional gifts, that were not promised during KS campaign that we added extra as a way of saying huge THANK YOU for all your amazing support. 

Etherfields deck is a standard playing deck with an art of our game that will come one day. At this point we have no idea when, as this is one of the most "artistic" game we will ever make and we do not want to rush it in any way. It is already in development for quite some time and it will be for quite some more time - but since we had all of those awesome arts done already we decided to share them with you in form of playing cards deck! 

We hope you guys will like them ;) 

 There is one last gift in the box that we are going to share with you in the next update! This one is quite BIG! ;) 

IMPORTANT: People who had chose 1-wave shipping will also receive exactly the same Surprise box with content! 

Tainted Grail - KS launch date announced

Speaking of our upcoming games and surprise box - for anyone that is interested, we have confirmed launch date on our future, story driven, survival and exploration co-op game Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon! It will go live December 5th at 5pm GMT +1 

We will have a bonus for everyone that will be with us on this campaign from Day 1, just as we had with Nemesis, so make sure not to miss it if that's a game that might interest you! Here is a story trailer for the game:

This project will in no way influence Nemesis production / development. Awaken Realms currently is quite a huge company with multiple full-time teams sitting in our offices (2D art, 3D art, testers, developers, copy-writers, production managers, logistics managers etc.) and we are perfectly capable of handling multiple projects at one time.

Ok guys! This is it for today! Hope Nemesis will get to you guys very soon and you will be able to enjoy this game!  We will update you soon with all the shipping info ;)

      Thanks Awaken Realms, I really enjoyed this campaign and will be supporting future projects as well!

      Hi there,
      I receieved my copy last week and I had 1st game at Sunday.

      The game is entertaining (and quite hard for newbie). I have few technical complains which AR could address:

      1) Miniatures have quite big mold lines. Possibly sue to higher pressure which is needed for more details. I have ordered fully painted Intruder pledge, so I would like to make sure that such thinks will be addressed prior painting. I will be impossible to fix that afterwards without damaging paint job.
      2) Contamination card values are quite visible, so I know when I am infected or not even without scanner. My friend did not believed me, so I have asked him to pick a card and line. Then I was able to tell him what exactly is there. We have checked it with scanner and it was 100% accurate. I do not think I have some kind of superpower, instead it is because there is given font which is monospaced. Therefore it is very helpful in determining, because I know exact position and exact shape. Could you please consider something better?
      I can imagine that it will be there will be something like captcha - random font, size and orientation and possibly some foreground/background blending? Maybe add more ballast colors to confuse tricksters like me? I would pay for such alternate deck, players could decide if they want to have basic or advanced contamination.
      3) I miss index in rulebook. I know I could say that when there was public beta, but I have realized that only when we constantly searched for something. some things are still unclear to me (like should be place doors on board during setup)?
      4) Will be there some big sorter/box package/transport for full intruder pledge so I can carry all that nice stretch goals and expansions easily together?

      Thanks in advance for answer!

      @Fabio It is a single standard playing card deck yes.

    4. AR_Jordan Collaborator on

      @neodruid I know it is at times confusing - there are dates everywhere, campaign, updates, gamefound. If I can help in anyway, never hesitate to ask. : )

    5. Fabio Paulotto on

      Great design for the playing cards deck! It's a single deck? I ask because a lot of italian card games requires 2 decks to be played... ;)

      Thank You for info. I missed that info(3 months later). I was confused by the info in gamefound prediction date of send, which states on date of this year.

    7. AR_Jordan Collaborator on

      @neodruid I'm sorry you feel this way. We have always said language versions take an extra 3 months. It is even on the main campaign page.

    8. AR_Jordan Collaborator on

      @All - All shipping info is in the updates, and/or the comments section. As any other info is available, this is where it will be.

      On gamfound faq there is information about language versions of game will be shipped 2-3 months later than English. This is very bad news. On project itself when I took language game the was no info on delay. In this case I would take English version. It is poor approach from awaken realms that they give opportunity to take language version but this people are in bad situation to get game so late. Bad PR for Awaken Realms. Never take language version.

      I have the English version of the game, but it's still "Placed and Paid".
      Dunno really what to think.

      Hello,
      mine is in the "Ready for shipping" status from 11/13/2018 8:56:45 PM.
      Does it mean the package is on the way? If yes, can I also get the tracking number?
      We really really cant wait to try this beast out :)
      Cheers, Gyula (from Hungary)

      @AR_Jordan, I called the UPS Hungary, they said they can't provide information without the tracking number and their website don't send out a notice whitout tracking number.
      So, send me my package's tracking number. Thanks!

      Received the game and it looks great. I especially like the insert that actually works and has room for everything (unlike most board games). I haven't checked everything yet, but at least one if the minis has been broken during transportation (the "shoulder claw" of a sitting adult intruder has fallen off). I will try to glue it and otherwise send a ticket.
      Thanks for what looks like a great game 🙂

      It does seem another Kickstarter is a lot plates to juggle. It's also difficult to want to back more till I have some more of what I paid for in hand. A card game, a reprint and now a new game when I'm still waiting on two games is a lot to ask. If you wanted till either nemsis base game or Hellas second wave delivered I would back another but as is I don't see myself doing so.

      dont cry babies. delay is 2 weeks. The rest is just because you cried over the language tiny problems in rules => 4 weeks delay. So WHAT DO YOU WANT? AR try to satisfy you but the tears are probably so sweet...?

      @Eddie Gonzalez they probably ship to florida because it is cheaper than the west coast.

    27. Kaladin on

      @Nuulstaladt don’t speak too early. Who knows how long it will take for the 2nd wave to come. AR’s Lords of Hellas hasn’t delivered their 2nd wave and it’s been a year since their initial estimated shipment date.

    28. Nuulstalädt
      Superbacker

      Well, at least it's not the Steamforged Games method of delays which is, ship in 2-4 waves a year and a half after expected completion date. Same goes for Kingdom Death. This is tame as hell by comparison.

    29. Kaladin on

      @Olomat they said it should be June 2019 before the other stuff starts shipping (other language versions and English stretch goals).

      @Expat I agree. I’d trade all the “surprise gifts” if it meant a faster production on the actual game I ordered (though I doubt there’s much if any correlation). I’ll probably be pitching the deck of cards if it’s pinup model art.

      Jaroslav Fabian on

      @Expat Mike: I think this happens to many companies (even most I believe) here on KS. We all experienced quite a delay, but there is nothing we can do about it. It is always a risk we choose to accept. And if this is about Europeans getting their games sooner then Americans, then although I can understand the feeling, I believe this is quite normal too. I usually don't see US companies delivering their games to Europe first...

      Now, you can say they could have made better estimates and advertise delivering dates as such, but that wouldn't help. We would all end up getting games in January/February. It is not easy to handle projects of such magnitude, one would need to try to understand I suppose. Still, I believe AR might get better at this in the future and I really think their ideas are fresh and bringing something new to the genre and for me it is worth the wait. I heard about much worse delays, so this is not that critical. I can imagine you are an enthusiast and have a pile of games to be played during Christmas anyway :).

      Btw., originally I was expecting delivery by the end of the year, which was almost accurate assumption...

    31. Max on

      Just need to confirm if there is any posibility that my copy had arrived to Argentina from Belgium. I received a notification from my local post office (a box of 3 kg from belgium)
      Thanks for any info!

    32. Antaar Garcia Avila on

      Just received mine and I love it. I was wondering if I still can buy add ons for them to ship with wave 2.

    33. Re-pat Mike on

      Genuinely disappointed in the US. So pardon the rant, but this has been building for a while.

      Post Christmas? Really? The one world region (US/Canada) comprising over one third of all your backers and its going to be delayed over a month after first backers receive their pledge? And ya I'm playing the special consideration card b/c we represent the largest chunk of your investors. I can understand the typical length of shipping and even a delay of a week or two- so we aren't going to ever be the first, I get that, but come on AR...

      I like your games (I've backed 3- and all three are still incomplete), but I'm done backing your stuff until I get all my pledges... in full. And then after that, you are gonna have to blow my socks off for me to back your delay machine. This is THEE ONLY REASON I didn't back The Edge: Dawnfall. I think the game looks great all around, but I need to see more return for what I have already invested in before I join up again. I keep feeling like I'm stuck in a pyramid scheme. I would easily trade your artistic cards(which from the looks of things I can't even use- I got kids) and the art book from your next project for you devoting more time on getting pledges fulfilled in a timely manner for your backers.

      I didn't realize language editions will ship separately from the english editions. I thought they were simultaneous. Are they still divided in 2 waves? Or are they all part of Wave 2? In which case I made the mistake of dividing it. Are the expansions also translated?

      @Rackar... I had to go in and burn a hole in my wallet to get 2 wave shipping ... originally was 1 wave :-P
