Project Update - 11 December 2018

Hello all, 

As promised, here is a video talking about some of the complications of manufacturing a 3D game, as well as some other general updates! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

If you don't feel like watching, here are a few bullet point notes for you:

  • Manufacturing is going on full steam ahead.
  • We were able to fix the last of the manufacturing errors.
  • No new timeline updates. As far as LongPack will tell me, we are still on schedule to finish manufacturing before Chinese New Year. Yay! Fingers crossed!
  • Thank you to all of you helping Luisa with translations! You rock! If you know anyone who can help with Spanish or Portuguese, please let us know as a few more volunteers for those languages would be helpful! 
  • I've contracted (just signed today) another experienced game publisher (PieceKeeperGamers) to manage the Kickstarter fulfillment process. This will help us make sure the fulfillment process is as quick and painless as possible, and will take a big weight off my chest! Getting ~40 different items to ~2000 different people in 53 different countries is no easy task, so I'm glad to have the help of someone who has done it multiple times! 
  • This means we will be locking down the pledge manager soon. More news on that as I work through the details with our contracted publisher. 

Thanks all for your support and continued patience. We are almost there! 

Have a happy holidays, 

Corey Wright

      Thanks for the update Corey. I do electrical construction for a living, so I totally understand the extra time needed to get details sorted out to achieve the best product possible. Good job having a meticulous mindset and not sending out the game to backers as is...looks like some fantastic improvements. Hope you enjoy your time off. Merry Christmas!

      Corey, you are a rockstar man! Thank you for the update and for continually throwing everything you have into this project. Especially with those little details you bring up in the video, like the card slit in the upgrade board, and the instructions on the trays, it really shows the thought, care and work you're putting into this, technically side 'passion project', in addition to trying have a life and support a family. The passion shows. Sorry you're getting grief from a few backers. I, for one, totally understand the delays and the disjointed communication you've had to work through, so there's no worries, no rush! :) I hope you're enjoying winter and you have a wonderful holiday! Can't wait to play the game and for the next update!
      Cheers! 🍻

      Great video of a man working his arse off to deliver even a better product than the one we backed. If everyone was feeding his partners in a job with that amount of useful information, the world would be made of more trust and better products.
      Thanks again for being so productive and demanding with your product.
      I don't have this one yet but hopefully you'll keep designing games with the experience growing.
      Keep up the good work.
      PS: I ususally don't watch this kind of video either but I did it relegiouly with that one, also because it is interresting to follow what you are going through in the process.

      Thanks Teurlinx... Definitely exited to get it to you guys. (:

      Thanks for the update. I have a lot of respect for how you handle this campaign.
      You went out of your way to improve the quality of the game in many little, but significant ways. And you keep us in the loop by straight-up telling us what you had to deal with.
      100% confident I'll have the best possible game in my hands when all is said and done.

      Hey Corey,
      Appreciate the update, and specially the "no unkeepable" promises about deadline and schedule. Recently many kickstarter project I've backed make unreasonable claim "it's going to be delivered by next week", "may be more the week after" and so on.
      We don't ask you anything, you fix your own timeline and we only want the best product at the end. So keep the good work and the good communication !

      Cheers

      @C.M. Your welcome, thanks for your patience!

      @Carlos: We are trying to wrap them up this month, maybe into early January. Would love to have you help! Just send Luisa at luisa@massifgames.com an email, and she can get you set up!

      @Stev0: ditto!

      Appreciate the update! I don't usually take the time to watch this sort of thing, but you've been doing a great job with all this and I was very interested in seeing how the delays have occurred. Not that I was being impatient, I just suspected it would be interested to see the behind the scenes aspect. Thanks again for the great updates!

      What’s the deadline for the translations? I could help both the Spanish and the Portuguese (Portugal) translation. It would be first time but I can try to manage it!

      Delays happen. Communication is key.

      @Reinaldo: Thanks, you rock! Could you send an email to luisa@massifgames.com? Or message me your email, and I'll connect her with you!

      I can help with the Portuguese translation.
