Shipping update! / Surprise gift #3 / Language editions
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:
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!
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 ;)
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!
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 ;)
