      As Baroness BorgKitten has said, he's not trying to underhand you at all. You just have to realize that there are certain things that take some time. And as far as communication, it isn't an easy thing for one person (I mean I will admit that perhaps in the future that there can be a designated person hired on to help with that) so just imagine if you were in a creator shoes of any Kickstarter, would you want anyone to send you a nasty gram if you honestly are trying to do everything you can? Just a food for thought, take it as you will

      I did receive an e-mail reply from Sean yesterday, just letting you guys know. I don't think that Sean is trying to underhand anyone, I just think there has been a lack of communication & updates since the pledges were supposed to be shipped out. Even with his last update about the shipping it would be nice just to have some sort of monthly update. Replying to all of the post here would have helped Sean to not get flooded with such post as below as well. In any case, try to send him an e-mail if you need to get in touch with him, it worked for me.

      I guess it is useless to send him messages here, is this the e-mail he supposedly checks? galloway.sean@gmail.com? If I do not get a response in a few days I suppose I'll have to resort to twittering him for my book or a refund!

      Sean,

      I backed the $350 tier and have yet to receive my commission (it is for my 6 year old daughter, and I made the mistake of telling her about it, so I get asked constantly). I filled out my survey (twice) and sent multiple Kickstarter messages, The first few received the "I'm a little delayed" style response, but the last three or four have gone unanswered. I've been patient and considerate and very understanding. I'm also a consumer protection attorney, and quickly running out of patience. You've made me look like a fool/liar to my daughter, you took my money and you refuse to even respond to my emails. The next communication you will get from me will be on letterhead, and will be considerably less friendly or understanding.

      I really only want what I paid for. I love your art. I love your creativity. I don't love that I invested money in you with the return promise of a drawing for my daughter and you completely flaked and refuse to answer. Please respond to any number of the Kickstarter messages I sent you with a date certain I can expect the drawing. I don't want this to get combative.

      I would typically send a message like this to you privately, but I don't see the point at this time. There is no indication you actually read them anyway. So instead, I'v going to vent publicly hoping it will shame you into action. I don;t hold out much hope that you will read this either, but at least the people complaining below will know it is not just the $25 and $35 tiers that are getting screwed.

      As of March 7th still have not received my books after being told on Jan. 28th that they would be shipping out. Tried to send another message on March 1st since I figured a month would be enough time to receive a package. Have not gotten a response and am unsure what else to do other than to take the advice below and log a complaint ticket with support.

      I still haven't received anything also. I filled out (possibly another) survey by the new Jan 17th deadline and sent payment for shipping. We're almost coming up on a year since the project was successfully funded. I just want my books or my money back. Thanks.

      Creator Jon Pinto on March 5

      Filled out a second survey in early January as they "couldn't find" my original one. Have not heard a peep since and have not received anything. Nine months late from the estimated delivery date so far. That's bad. How does Kickstarter allow someone so delinquent with one project, start another one??

      Creator ☆Baroness BorgKitten☆ - Virtuous WoOS on February 26

      April 2, 2013 I sent my shipping payment of $10.00 to Sean Galloway's PayPal account for my $25.00 tier with my address included as was requested. The last message I sent though Kickstarter has not been responded to yet & I am still patiently waiting. My Kickstarter account shows that I never received a survey to this project, not sure if the survey was for add-ons or such but all I really wanted was the basics for my tier. To Sean Galloway, not sure if you guys are overwhelmed as this has been your first Kickstarter project or if there is a blatant lack of concern or care on your end. Please send an update to reassure us & let us know what is going on at your end. I really hate making a post like this, it's the first time I have done so, I really just want to know what is going on.

      Wow....I thought it was just me. I got 3 emails from them on 1/13/14 but I have not gotten anything but empty promises. This was after I paid the extra shipping via PayPal, and sent them my shipping info 3 times! So with the backer survey, PayPal, Kickstarter backer survey, and me sending them my address 3 times via email (and mind you I have not moved in the past12 yrs) I have not gotten anything.

      Great news team Gumshoes! I've received my goodies today!! Everything looks great!!

    20. Final_2.small

      Creator Matt Reppert on January 4

      Todd, I also filled out the Bastion survey with a note saying that I did not receive my Gumshoes 4 Hire rewards. Sean actually sent me an email apologizing for not mailing my rewards. He actually sent me a G4H survey and said that he would mail the rewards out to me that week so I filled out the survey and sent it back to him, along with a note saying that there was some discontent on the G4H page and that maybe he should respond to people who've been posting on there. He sent me another email asking if I had the PDF which I did. At first this seemed like it was going great, I was going to post on here about my positive experience with Sean.

      Until I never received the rewards. Did I mention that the email exchange took place from Dec 13 to Dec 17.

      Sean hasn't responded to me since the 17th, I sent him another email politely asking him as to what was the status of the shipment that he promised me and no response.

      Look, I'm a patient guy, I will occasionally post and poke creators of certain projects if they don't post updates or what have you. I've come to accept that a majority of the Kickstarter projects are never going to be completed on time. It's just how it is. However, I'm THISCLOSE to starting to bombard Sean's pages with demands as to where the bloody rewards are. Currently on G4H alone I've spent $50 on my tier along with the $20 payment I sent for shipping. So as of right now I've spent $70 on G4H alone and gotten nothing other than two emails from Sean. That is unacceptable.

      I also backed the Bastion 7 project only because I didn't know what a nightmare it would be to get my rewards from Sean, not to mention that now I'm concerned that I'll never get Bastion 7 as well whenever it's completed.

      Sean, if you read this, fix this, not just for me, but for everyone who hasn't gotten their rewards. I'm on the verge of going over to Bastion 7's page and starting to post constant requests for my and other people's rewards.

      I understand that stuff happens during the holidays and people get busy and whatnot, but the utter lack of communication here is absolutely disrespectful to people that backed the project and have gotten nothing from it so far. I'm contacting Kickstarter about what has happened so far and providing them with all of the emails I've gotten from this project to this point (which I've saved). So far this whole experience has been a nightmare.

      I too filled out the Bastion survey with an additional note about not receiving Gumshoes. I've tried his personal email and Facebook where I received a single response asking about the survey but couldn't get a second response or any sort of ongoing conversation. Sadly, I felt I had to write KS about what was happening. This is how they responded...

      "Kickstarter Support, Dec 23 15:50:

      Hi Todd,

      Thanks for sending along this extra information. I sent another message to the creator to further explain the confusion about the surveys, since they were sent through Dropbox and backers are unable to view their survey responses. I asked him to post an update or respond to messages to clarify how he will move forward with reward fulfillment- particularly for those who did not respond to the survey in time.

      Again, thanks for letting us know about this. Hopefully our combined effort will encourage the creator to respond soon.

      Best,
      Natalie"

      So now I have some sort of 'ticket' open. Perhaps if other backers who haven't received their rewards also let KS know their status and issues, we can get some forward movement on this. I'm not trying to be difficult or cause Sean any trouble, I just want my books or my pledge back. This whole thing has been disheartening.

      Hey there! I have PM'd a few times about this, but have not gotten a response, so I don't know if they are getting through or not, but I haven't received my tier reward/hard copy books. Are there any estimates for when I will receive them? I just got my B7 survey, but I still haven't gotten my books from Gumshoes and I don't want them to get lost/forgotten about!

      I'm really looking forward to getting them, so an update on them would be really appreciated!

      Hey Sean,

      I was really looking forward to reading Gumshoes. But I can't seem to get in touch with you and I don't have my books even though you have my $50. I don't know what to do at this point. I guess I can try to go through KS or Paypal or something to try to get a refund. I'm a big fan, so this really sucks that you've put me in this position. I'm also pledged in Bastion's so hopefully it won't happen there as well. Either way, send the books or refund my money. I don't care at this point, I just want it over with. I'll take action next week if I don't hear from you.

      Thanks,
      Todd

      Still waiting. Sorry that this turned out not as you planned. For me either. Was going to keep the PDF for myself and gift the books for Christmas, however I don't expect to get the books in time now and I no longer have the PDF because I downloaded it at work and stopped working there right after. Any chance of getting a new PDF file to compensate for the extended wait time??

      I figured I'd hold off a while before sending a message (I completely understand life getting crazy, especially with big project deadlines!). I'm curious if my survey actually made it to you since it sounds like things are getting close to winding down for shipments of things and I haven't seen anything yet. I'm part of the $25 tier and send my survey back in mid-April. Not in a huge rush, but just wanted to make sure the Internet didn't eat something. Thanks for all you do, Sean! :)

      Sorry for all the tardiness, folks!

      Hope this will shed more light on your messages....The latest update explains my being incognito for the month and half (and with deepest and most sincere apologies.)

      Updates 45 and 46 provided information of an indepth look into why rewards have taken longer to send out. I'll also include here. 1 of 4 reasons:

      1) I have a new son born a month and half early, so alot of adjustment with our new addition to the family.

      2) the amount of head sketches from the unlocked stretch goal resulted in 600ish head sketches drawn by me. Update 44's update still holds true that at anytime anyone may opt out of the free head sketch and I can send your book (rewards) out ASAP.

      3) Surveys sent back to me late have been prioritized to send out last.

      4) Still in the process of finishing out a tier's reward.

      If you haven't yet click the link at the bottom of Update 44 to download 300ish head sketches!

      Again, I can't apologize enough how unforseen events had thrown me off the path, but rest assured I'm back after wrapping up a pressing deadline for my editor to finish out the rewards.

      My best-

      Sean
