Shipping update!


All Kickstarter packages have now been shipped, except for people who filled out their surveys after the 13th of August: we're doing you now. Orders placed through Breadpig are shipping this week. All this is to say, if you live in the United States and don't have your package by the end of next week, you should message me on Kickstarter or email with the details: Christina is handling logistics and will get it sorted out. She is the best! If you're shipping internationally, add another week on top of that.  99% of these packages will make it there okay, so know that the odds of your package getting into trouble are really low!


All delivered! If you're missing something, drop me an email - - and we'll get it to you!


Here are some more of them!

Oh not much just Michael's book at The Globe theatre! :o

Joseph doesn't want to miss a thing.

Amy's Yorick has joined the workforce.


In other news, I've started thinking seriously about Hamlet pizza, as well as starting to think seriously about how "I've started thinking seriously about Hamlet pizza" is a sentence that was never before written on the internet until now. I'll start a plan of attack and get started on building this for you guys soon!


It feels weird to have so few things to talk about!  Weird and - kinda sad? But I will have more to talk about soon, oh yes.  OH YES INDEED.

      I got my stuff!

      I already beat the book. I got the ending where they make out and live happily ever after. I am afraid to replay it because I feel like there can't possibly be any happier ending, so it can only go downhill from there... But I guess I am probably wrong! :P

      Amazing kickstarter, by far the best I've backed. I look forward to backing any future projects you create.

      I got mine today (I was in the middle of moving houses, so I sent my survey very late). I am completely blown away. I was expecting something tiny; maybe twice as long as Poor Yorick. This book is huge! And beautiful! And it has at least one good story in it! (Because I have read one story and that story was good.)

      Mine came in last week, while I was travelling, along with my mini squishable fox! :D

      Then my roommate's dog ate the fox. D:

      I have to drop my name into the bucket with those who are sad to see this end. Oh, don't you worry that I don't loooooove my books and the other goodies, but the ride to this point was almost worth the price of admission (..."almost" is REALLY close to "not even any doubt about it, you guys," so that's saying something!). I am crazy-super-mega-dino-looking forward to a chance to support the heck out of another Ryan North Kickstarter!

      For now, I guess I'll just have to enjoy my books and my cuddly Yorick skull. :P

      I'm also sad that the project is winding down... I got my books and stuff a few weeks ago, which was completely unexpected and made me reaaaally happy. No news of my Yorick yet, so I wanted to ask if those also shipped by now. I know it's supposed to be a separate package, I'm just not sure if Squishable's already shipped everything or not, how long ago, that sort of thing. Thanks!

      One look at Yorick and I could tell he was in New Zealand. Seriously, hi-viz vests seem to be the new national dress, especially after all the earthquakes in the last few years.

      My package seems to have been mis-delivered by the Post Office. :( I've messaged away, so hopefully this can get sorted out and I can get the books - one of them is for my best friend, who teaches remedial English to junior-high students, and she is really looking forward to using this in her class.

    9. Richard Luijten on August 26, 2013

      I completely agree Kevin.
      While I am glad that I received the book well before any other kickstarter project I've backed (some of which were supposed to be released in MARCH) I'm also kinda sad that I won't be on the tip of my chair waiting for updates.
      I'm enjoying the hell out of the book, but I'm totally up for the next kickstarter!

    10. KLAWLOR on August 26, 2013

      Its kinda upsetting that i already have the wonderful books and the brilliant skull, it means this whole adventure is coming to its end and that's something i don't want to allow :(
