Hello Day One Backers!

Welcome and thank you all for showing up on day one. It really makes a difference to the success of a project to have strong early support. 

We've been working on Tiny Epic Mechs for quite awhile now and we're so excited to finally be able to share the game with you all. The collective response it has gotten and all of your tremendous support today means so much to us. 

It goes without say that we've obliterated our funding goal and are now smashing through stretch goals! 

Going through the backer list I recognize a lot of return backers. Welcome back! A lot of this post will be familiar to you. For some of you though, this may be your first Gamelyn Games/Tiny Epic project or it may even be your very first Kickstarter. How exciting!? I'm committed to doing everything I can to make your experience enjoyable and worth your time and hard earned money. 

Please feel encouraged to share your thoughts on the game, the campaign and anything Tiny Epic related. If you have questions, please ask. l will also keep the FAQ updated, so you can check there to.

My promise to you as a faithful project creator is to read all comments and emails, consider all points of view and answer a ridiculously high amount of the questions! 

While this may be obvious for some, the Tiny Epic series is very important to me, the game's designer Scott Almes, and to everyone involved.

I will be present and involved daily during the project and I will be diligent about delivering the final product as close to the estimated date, and as glorious in form, as possible!

So welcome again to all our backers. We truly hope that our Tiny Epic games will change your gaming life as you know it!

Lastly, lets all remember to keep our community friendly, considerate and accepting of others' opinions!

From here on out I will be posting regular updates to share more about the game and to keep everyone informed on how things are progressing.

Talk to you all again very soon.

Sincerely and greatly appreciative,

Michael Coe

      The graphic design reminds me of Tron. Any chance that a future stretch goal could include glow-in-the-dark ink on the arena cards?

      Just a thought. It may not be possible.

      @Olaskos - When will we learn more about the Spotlight Mini Expansion that comes with the deluxe?

      - When you do something that makes the crowd go wild, you’ll get a camera on you. If you keep the camera on you then you’ll gain extra perks and possibly bonus points!

      @Joyce L - If I also wanted to get Heroes of Land, Air and Sea, would it be better for me to do a late pledge on that kickstarter page or to do an add-on in this campaign’s pledge manager?

      - The late pledge on that Kickstarter is closed. So adding it to this PledgeManager or ordering it through the website (when we post it) will be the only way to pre-order it.

      @Olaskos - What about your comment in the general comments about extra ITEMeeples for sale? What’s that about and in tale?

      - It's a way to get the extra plastic in the game. All weapons, the power armor, the mech suit and the ITEMeeples.

      @Gamelyn Games That's too bad, while ShipNaked may be good they ship via DHL. I've had enough bad experiences with DHL then I care for, they're terrible about providing updates on packages, and they're dreadfully slow.

      @Rick Shaw - Are you going to use Shipnaked again for delivery?

      - Yes. They just did a marvelous job shipping over 23,000 units of Tiny Epic Zombies in 3 weeks.

      @Olaskos -Do you see August as a actually time table or are you giving yourself some extra room. TEZ from fund to my door was only like 7 months, this is 11. Without making a verbal commitment to us, do you think it’s possible that if everything goes smooth that it could be delivered faster as well?

      - While not making any commitments, I could see this project delivering a little early if all things go as planned.

      @Alexandra - Any plans to offer a Mech playmat?

      - Yes, we will be offering a Tiny Epic Mechs playmat in PledgeManager after the project.

      @Joyce L - Other Tiny Epic games, deluxe versions, will be offered in the PledgeManager after the project.

      @Joyce L - shipping will be charged separately for each extra item because the items will be shipped when ready and will not be held back for Tiny Epic Mechs. The shipping is weight based and will vary by location.

      I have all your Tiny Epics and Heroes of Land, Air and Sea. Your games are great and you run a great campaign! I even bring a few south when vacationing in the winter. I would back a Gamelyn game without reading the details.

    16. Olaskos on

      That I do not know. I’d assume around $5-15 depending on how much extra you get.

      I want TEG (both) but probably will order online since they won’t ship until MECHs ships.

      Thank you @Olaskos. :)

      Does anyone know how much shipping costs will increase with each item add-on in pledge manager?

    18. Olaskos on

      @joyce yes. When they collect money they do the pledge manager after where you add the addons and more funds if desired.

      I’m a little confused with add-ons etc. Are we able to purchase other Tiny Epic games through Pledge Manager after this campaign?

    20. Jayvir on

      I'm technically a first-time backer but I own Quest, Defenders 2E, and Galaxy and was a late pledger for Heroes of Land Sea and Air. I made it a goal to get everything from you guys when it come out. Needless to say, I got some other TE games and expansions to collect but I'm all on board with Mechs

      Backer 3197 here. I started with Tiny Epic Quest and Galaxies on Tabletop Simulator. I immediately bought TEQ deluxe! I found out by accident of Tiny Epic Zombies and late pledged it.
      While I only played one solo game, my group is gonna play it like mad this Sunday!
      No doubt as much as I love how each of the Tiny Epic series, mechs and smooshing my friends - it was a definite day one back! ❤

    23. David Rowan on

      Tiny Epic Zombies was the first I had the chance to back and the entire process was insanely professional. Can’t wait to play with some mechs...oh also, I have had a hard time putting TEZ down.

      @Olaskos, so is mine but you'll be happy with me for the suggestion! :D

      I found out about this through a Promoted Post on Facebook, FWIW. So if you spent money on that, you got a return on investment.

      After recently receiving TEZ I could not wait to jump into TEM especially when the solo mode got unlocked... Also gamelyn games actually fulfil when they say they will which is refreshing for kickstarters... And TEZ is awesome...!!!

    27. Himle on

      2nd TE* game here and even though I'm more of a Co'Op player/group myself I have to say, this looks great!
      Also really helps when it's a great company 👍

    28. Olaskos on

      @Joenathan me too. Saw your post on fb too lol

    29. Olaskos on

      @ Alexadra, my wallet is very mad at you! Lol

    30. Jonathon Mark Johnson on

      I jumped on about 6 hours later and it was a trip still seeing the pledge money spinning out of control.

      Backing was a bit hesitant as the video said it was a 2-4 player game - but then came across the $100,000 Stretch Goal - Solo Play - and then it was a no brainer and backed.

      Backer 6,038 here and reporting for Mech piloting duty - SIR!!!

      I've been anxiously waiting to back this. Tiny Epic... are all so much fun. Thanks for sharing your games with the rest of us.

      Any plans to offer a Mech playmat? I got the playmat for Tiny Epic Zombies and I love it! Would equally love one for this game. Looks like tons of fun!

      This thing about being nice and courteous though I think is really not for me :P

      Thanks, Michael. Well said. And welcome to all my fellow backers. This is my 6th Tiny Epic Kickstarter, and I've never been disappointed. Awesome games, awesome community, awesome @Creator support. Thank you!

      Just wanted to say we played our first game of tiny epic zombies Wednesday - a great addition to the series and really looking forward to mechs and action programming - one of my favourite MECHanisms every since first print of robo rally

    37. Olaskos on

      @Chris this is my third day 1 backing. My first was Sorcerer and then TEZ!

    38. Adam Butler on

      First Gamelyn game I've backed- I wanted to with Tiny Epic Quest, but simply couldn't. I did receive Ultra Tiny Epic Kingdoms at one point, but I've been avoiding buying most Tiny Epic games since it seems the only way to get them complete is through Kickstarter.

      While I came in on the late pledge for TEZ, this is my first day one backing and I couldn't be more thrilled. Thanks for creating games of such quality and fun! :)

    42. Eli Butcher on

      I love this game! As for comments or suggestions. I'd love to see decals/stickers for the ItemMeeples. So we can have the characters look cooler with our painted mech and power suits. That would be cool for the other ItemMeeple games too.

    43. Olaskos on

      Can’t wait, TEZ was amazing!

      #3 for me, +1 if you include a late pledge
