Greetings Kickstarter Backers!
Our apologies for the extended radio silence since the last update. We have been completely swamped with work here at the Greater Than Games headquarters, which is consistently thrilling but frequently frustrating. Development work is coming along well for both Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance and for Galactic Strike Force, and both will be sent to the printer within the next couple months.
However, this timeline represents a significant delay from our planned timeline when we first
ran our Kickstarter campaigns. In retrospect, having multiple games in the early and middle stages of development simultaneously was far from optimal - we have learned our lesson, and we won’t be doing it again. Our primary goal with all of our games is to release a fun and awesome product, regardless of pre-estimated timelines. Unfortunately, in holding to that goal, we will be unable to meet our October delivery date for SotM:Vengeance and GSF. The delivery date will instead be pushed back to February 2014 for both products.
We realize that this is delay is disappointing - it’s disappointing to us as well! That said, we believe that taking the time to make the games the best they can be will be well worth the wait. However, we also want to thank you for your patience. To that end, we will be enhancing your backer rewards, free of charge.
For Galactic Strike Force, we will be going forward with the $100k Stretch Reward and upgrading all Opposition Flagship Miniatures to the much more impressive 60mm models. Seriously, they’re super cool, and we’re more than happy to eat the extra costs as thanks for your patience.
For Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance, we will be including an extra promo card: G.I. Bunker.
This is an early version of the Bunker suit, which fought alongside America’s Greatest Legacy in World War II.
Finally, some of our international backers pledged with the understanding that they would be able to pick up their rewards at Essen Spiel, thereby saving on shipping. This will obviously no longer be possible. However, for those backers, we will ship you your rewards free of charge once they are available.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. From all of us here at Greater Than Games, thank you for your understanding. We are doing our best to make excellent games, and we very eagerly look forward to delivering those games to you.
