      @Matt - the green tool is a laser cutter. We removed the hammer (you have a wrench, right?) and the screwdriver. Duct tape is the universal repair tool.

      In the prototype, the four tools are: hammer, screwdriver, blowtorch, and wrench. In the most recent photos/videos, it's clear that some of the tools have changed. I still see the blowtorch and wrench, but now there's duct tape (very cool), and some green tool that I can't figure out. So, what's the green tool?

      @Matt - the container is in the port of Seattle - about a mile from my warehouse. I am expecting delivery today... though I have not yet received customs clearance notification. I just emailed the freight company to get status. I am planning on doing an update once I have them in hand.

      Are things still looking good for the boxes to show up at your door tomorrow (4/18)? Having played the prototype several times, I'm really looking forward to seeing the final product!

      @everyone - the games are on the water - they are supposed to arrive at US port on 4/11. We are expecting a week in customs, and then to have them turned around to our backers. We are expecting to have them in your hands before the end of the month.

      Matt - we hope to have photos of the games going into the container next week. We will also have an updated ETA as we are on a ship, or waiting at the port for a specific ship at this point.

      @Justin, same thing happened to me. It kept telling me that I needed to enter a country on the address form even though I had selected US. Tried it a couple different ways getting the same error. Eventually just closed it and logged back in. Now it says I backed at Dekaspacer AND is trying to charge me $25 to ship.

      @BFRG Let me know what can be done to correct this. Thanks.

      I backed at the SPACER - [GAMER'S PACK] level and after using the backer kit it seems to think I backed at the DEKASPACER - EARLY BIRD [DELUXE LEVEL]. Can this be corrected and the amount owed amended? Thanks.

      Dr. Benn, this being the internet and given the possibilities of misunderstanding I will just say that in my opinion, this kickstarter has been executed in a "respectable" manner. We have been kept informed all along the way. I can give you some examples of project owners showing no respect for the backers at all if you need them.

    26. Gripmatkickstartericon.small

      Creator Break From Reality Games on February 2

      Dr. Benn - absolutely. The last thing we want is someone backing who does not want the game. email me at eric@bfrgames.com to receive your refund. Be warned - this game will retail for $65.00.

    27. Redshirticon.small

      Creator Dr.Benn on February 2

      Other respectable game makers, such as Game Salute, offer a refund option when delivery is significantly delayed. I think that 12 months certainly qualifies. How about it?

      @Jared -

      I am waiting to hear back from them... we also had to add the Kickstarter Exclusive character set to the box for all backers receiving a game. I am hoping to have an answer for that tonight. I will be doing an update as soon as I have confirmation. I am sure that the Chinese New Year will impact us.

    29. Missing_small

      Creator Jarad Bond on January 27

      So, when they told you, "Games should ship from China next week", did they mean next week after the Chinese New Year? Or did it make it in time?

      @Michael - Systems Critical is underway! :) We will be running a Kickstarter on this in April -ish. We want to get the main game to market, and sold out first. Stay tuned - much awesome work will take place in 2014.

      I have only been following the updates, and only have read some of the most recent comments, so this may have been answered below, but what is the current plan for those who pledge at Deluxe Level or higher and the expansion Damage Report: Systems Critical? Is the plan to start on that soon, or is that the extra scenario's you mentioned below?

      Mini-update: Good news guys! I got an email today from Panda saying that our hard proofs *should* go out tomorrow. That means by early next week, if all goes will we can give the thumbs up to start production. Wahoo! We'll do a full project update with photos when we get it. I'm pumped!

      Creator Break From Reality Games on December 2

      @David What I am trying to say... is the GripMat project is not causing any negative impact to Damage Report. And in fact - is a huge relief for the team that the GripMats are finally ready to be produced. We have been slow with Damage Report, and we are committed to being better with every future project.

    36. Gripmatkickstartericon.small

      Creator Break From Reality Games on December 2

      @David - We have never claimed not to be late, and we are most definitely at fault. We have had team changes, a complete art-redesign of the game, and 5 new scenarios that had to be play tested, vetted, and made right. These are some of the many factors that got us to July to get the game into our manufacturers hand. We never have made excuses - always just what is going on. As for a track record - we are 1 and 0. Disaster Looms! was on time, Damage Report is not. GripMats are actually in production now... and should be ready to ship in January to all our backers early. But we are quoting March. We learned our lesson.

    37. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator David Havelka on December 2

      Not trying to be a jerk here, but seriously, look at the dates involved. Damage Report funded on Oct 8, 2012. YOU indicated an "estimated delivery" date of January 2013, which is a period of time of only 4 months, giving you the benefit of the doubt of the last day of January 2013. Even if Damage Report was finished and ready to print on Oct 8, 2012, you would would have been hard pressed to been able to get it printed in China, shipped, cleared thru customs, and delivered to the backers by the estimated delivery date. But, it CLEARLY wasn't finished in October, your own updates indicate that you were still finalizing art in March 2013.

      Even if the "delays that have persisted for the last 3 months are not related to" your team, that would still have put production starting approximately 7 months after the estimated delivery date; as noted above and in the prior comments you were still involved in development and art work months after the estimated delivery date.

      I am simply pointing out that you have an established track record of grossly underestimating your delivery dates and now you have a Grip Mat kickstarter with a funding date of January 8th 2014 with a estimated delivery date of March 2014. I think you need to seriously look at what estimated delivery dates you are publishing.

    38. Gripmatkickstartericon.small

      Creator Break From Reality Games on December 2

      @David - also in the last post - we are only waiting on the Hard Proof at this time. We may have it this week. Production should happen the week after - then onto the boat!

    39. Gripmatkickstartericon.small

      Creator Break From Reality Games on December 2

      @David - the delays that have persisted for the last 3 months are not related to our team. We have been responsive and alert to anything our manufacturer needed. We have been working on several projects alongside Damage Report as it cleared various groups. The first person that was done with the game was our illustrator - subsequently she has been working on art for our GripMats for several months. We are less happy about the delays than anyone... but it reality, and there is nothing that we could do to change the situation. The good news is the GripMat - which many people added on to this campaign - and has been in development since our first project Disaster Looms! is in print. Thus those backers will be getting their games and GripMat at the same time. Again, we are frustrated by the delay of Damage Report - but it has been in the hands of Panda now since July, with exception to the rule book which was completed in August. If you review the posts you will see that this is due to the tooling and die making for the custom sculpt tools, or at least that is what we have been told.

There are also non-science-fiction strategy, miniatures, and more on the docket, in fact, we find ourselves already with more games to make than time. In addition to receiving all future games we produce for life, we would like to meet you the conferences we will be attending throughout the year. We are planning a party for everyone attending Origins, GenCon, and other conventions/conferences next year as well!
