Have a question?
@Lorcan - Let's Play Games (our fulfillment partner in Australia) has received the games! They should begin fulfilling either late this week or early next.
@John Espinoza - As per our estimates noted in Update #30, the games are scheduled to arrive at the dock in the US the last week of August, so we are expecting the US fulfillment to take place the first 2 weeks of September.
Have these been sent to American Backers yet? I haven't received mine yet.
Any update on Australian fulfilment? Looking forward to this one.
If any other backers in Asia received a damaged shipment, please let us know: Questions@imphouse.com (or send us a message here on Kickstarter).
Also: games are about to arrive in Australia, so we will be sending an update this evening with a 48 hour notice about closing the surveys, so get those addresses updated!
Well, that's not good! I'm going to private message you and we'll get you sorted out :)
Yes I meant the box cover of the game.
@Ahmad - Oh my gosh! Was the game box damaged?
I received it in Singapore. One side of the box cover was torn up bad that they had to tape it up though.
So, backers in Asia have started receiving their games! If you're watching the comments; please check in with your first impressions!
Hi @Claes - I will send you a private message to let you know the instructions. For anyone else reading this: using a computer, when logged into Kickstarter, go to the main Fate of Fantos project page, click on "view pledge" and then click the "Survey" tab. From there, you should see an "edit" button for your address. Let us know if you have any issues with updating!
Is it still possible to change location of delivery? How do you do that?
Ah man, those boxes are amazing looking. This game is really gonna pop out. Now the agonizing sea voyage T_T
As for that dice photo... don't know if it's an optical illusion with the camera angle or what, but that dice looks freaking huge!
Awesome update, I really can't wait for this game, the art is amazing!
Don't open the box, don't open the box! (Just kidding, we opened it...and it was amazing!! Update coming in a couple minutes!)
Whats in the box whats in the boooox? The FB photo is a serious tease.
So are the games on the boat now?
I just got an art print from you guys! It looks so good if only it didn't make the wait for the rest of the rewards feel even longer >< Tell the artist 'Good Job!"
You would think if it ALWAYS takes longer than expected you should start expecting something different ;P
Or is even weirder: What if you EXPECT it to take INFINITE time???
lol, as is life mate, thanks for the response. It will be all worth it in the end I'm sure :)
Hi Jason! Just awaiting word from WinGo; we are hoping to get the first load on a boat later this week; we can't wait either! It always takes so much longer than expected :(
How far is this from being loaded onto the boat? Can't wait :)
I watch the updates, just didn't know if the Jun 28 update was the one you were talking about, or a new one this week.
@Jim - are you not receiving our updates in your inbox? If not, you can click on the "updates" tab above to read the latest one (#27).
Is "early this coming week" next week?
Got some photos from WinGo to update on the process, and we're getting the original art giveaway ready...look for an update early this coming week!
Hi guys! Update was sent June 1st about the final production schedule. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/imphouse/savage-planet-the-fate-of-fantos/posts/2203052 - Any other questions at the moment?
This one...falling off the radar????
Happy to hear it! :D
@Richard Berry - Just received an email about that from the factory this morning! Looks like end of June for the production to be complete, and we'll be finalizing freight and fulfillment within the next couple of weeks, so we'll know exact dates at that point...but we are in the end game now! Update coming this week for everyone :)
So when can we expect to receive our copiey?
Oh! And we just got shipping confirmation for our physical sample of the giclée art print too! We'll add that to the photo gallery when it arrives.
@David, yes, confirmed in the update comments.
Looks great guys!
Will the dice still be pink / marbled shard in the final version?
Sure looks nice! And I like that the insert will hold sleeved cards too. What size were the cards so I could sleeve them right away when I finally get my hands on the game. The game mat looks awesome too. Too bad I didn't choose that too.
Update just posted with a link to the photo gallery of the sample! It looks good; the quality of the components is great, just some small updates to a few colors and text needed, then final production begins!!
I'm really looking forward to this, can't wait to see how the samples have turned out. This game has moved up on my personal anticipated list, not only due to a lack of minis, but the awesome art style (and gameplay of course).
Glad to hear samples shipped! Any sign of them at the doorstep yet?
@Jim Todd - Oh definitely, we don't plan on any more Savage Planet titles to be released until after Fate of Fantos has been 100% fulfilled! As frequent KS backers ourselves, we definitely understand the logic behind that.
AND....GOOD NEWS!!! WinGo sent us tracking on the production sample, and it's due to arrive this week! We're getting the camera all warmed up for hot-off-the-press photos!
I try and follow this logic as well, however, if late into production, as this one is, I am typically ok with it.
@Jim Todd I agree.
I like that more is coming, and that you are establishing a brand, but because of my experiences with companies like Soda Pop, I have put in a personal rule that I don't generally back any NEW Kickstarter projects from a company that still hasn't delivered the LAST one. I am not sure how many others feel that way, but I might suggest not launching a new Savage Planet product until you deliver the very first one.
@Alex Spaanstra - It caught us by surprise as well! I'm not sure why they didn't mention it before now. It's very odd, because they were amazing and quick 2 years ago with our dice game. I believe they are in a period of growth, which can always cause some hiccups. As far as timeline, our rep hasn't been able to give us a new projection yet; originally she had quoted us a 7-10 day turnaround on the sample...and obviously that is out the window now. Hopefully she'll have a more firm estimation soon at the end of this week.
Don't get me wrong, I'm fine with waiting, but what do you mean Wingo is moving? This sounds like a huge delay in terms of the production timeline. Hopefully an update will be coming soon to explain everything.
We just received a cryptic email from Wingo this morning about how they are moving locations this week, which has delayed their printing. It's still okay though; I don't start panicking unless they stop responding completely, and I trust Wingo to not do that! Got an update coming for everyone!
@Kirk Grentzenberg - The proof hasn't arrived yet! We are hoping next week, and AS SOON as it gets here, we'll be updating with photos...we are crossing our fingers that it will be perfect and won't need any major changes!!
Looking forward to seeing this one. Hope printers proofs were everything you expected! Further information? Thanks!
