Hello all, I hope you are having a good summer so far!
This is a progress update, so that you know how everything is progressing.
Materials are here
Almost everything we were waiting for is finally here. Apart from the necessary raw materials, we have also received a number of smaller add-on scenics which would look nice on magnetised urban tiles! They will be included as options in the Pledge Manager, so we are busy working on them to post appropriate photos. You can see some of the scenics in the image below (they are not magnetised yet, just laid out so you can get a glimpse). Apart from the modern and old-fashioned city lights, we have included traffic lights, flower beds, statues and wire-fences.
Pledge manager is still being set up
We wanted to have everything presented with corresponding prototype images in the PM, so unfortunately it was not ready to go in last days of June (that does not mean we are not already working on your tiles, read below). We are now finishing most of the moulds and we will be casting prototypes next week. So we hope to send invites during July.
Production is under way!
While finishing prototypes and moulds, the first sets are almost ready. The fixed contents of each reward level has allowed us to start working on the basic types of tiles. You can check the tiles of the first 3 3'x3' "medieval" sets at their finishing stages in the image below.
I know we have delayed the digital reward delivery, but I wanted it to be part of the pledge management process. Actually, the digital files are ready, but I wanted, as a bonus, to include as many of the extra tile types which unlocked as possible. This means we have to finish more of the prototypes to take the proper images. So, it's for a good reason since you will be getting more stuff :)
That's all for the time being, we will talk again soon!
