Status update

Posted by Darren J. Gendron (Creator)

This past week has been a mess for me personally, and I've been trying to not let it spill over into my work. The thumbnail version of what's been happening is that my son's nanny has been unavailable to work for the past week and a half, which has ground my order fulfillment down to a halt.

The office side of things - updating addresses, weighing the boxes, buying the postage and creating the labels, is now caught up. Tracking emails will be coming out really, really soon. But I need to warn everyone: packages won't be in motion until Monday at the soonest.

There's about 200 boxes that still need to be taped together, and the earliest that I'll be able to fetch the games from the warehouse is Saturday morning. I expect to be spending all day taping and stuffing, plus a good chunk of Sunday, too.

      Any delay is acceptable when it comes with an update. We've all waited a long time for this, a little longer won;t kill us.

      Great to hear it! ..but don't forget, Monday, October 8th, is a federal holiday. Post offices will be closed.

      'We didn't join this crew withbout thought and us scurvy dogs don't snap at the hand that feeds us,'

      I snap. But in a good way. (you hear that O?)

      We're with you Cap'n! Did you expect a mutiny? We can wait for the treasure to be divied up. We didn't join this crew withbout thought and us scurvy dogs don't snap at the hand that feeds us, we just like a pat on the head now and again. I could go on I'm done for now.

      No worries, Dern - we can all understand how life just conspires against us at times. If you need to take more time, you take it. We'll still be here, happily waiting, when all is said and done.

      I think we'd all rather you were sane enough to keep making awesome games and comics. :)
