Closing The Book On Ruse
Hi there everyone.
Michael here, with what will be our final (proper) update for Gaslight Empire: Ruse.
Now that the game is hitting store shelves around the world and backers should all have their copies, it's time to shut up shop here on the Kickstarter page. I'd like to personally thank all of you for helping make Ruse a real and wonderful thing, and while I know it was something of a rollercoaster at times, I'd like to think that the game stands on its own too feet and hope that you're all enjoying playing it. It turned out beautifully and I reckon it was worth the wait.
I know that there was talk of zipper pulls and mousemats, but I'm sorry to say that these will not be shipped out. We hope that the extra bookmarks we included will be something of a step towards apologising for not having these trinkets in your collections, but to put it simply: the budget for the campaign couldn't stretch to having these made. After creating the game and budgeting for shipping everything out, there just wasn't enough left in the pot to stretch to making them. We actually ended up having to cover more than we received from this campaign, so we hope that you understand why these extra items will not be made.
We believe that everyone should have their game by now. However, if you're yet to receive your copy of Ruse that you've pledged for, please send a message to Service@GameSalute.com and the team will be delighted to help you out. In the meantime, thank you once more for your support, your patience and your passion for gaming. We couldn't have made Ruse without your assistance.
Enjoy the game!
