UK backer and have received no email notification.
Hearing that this is now available in shops and we are still to receive our copies, sours this KS for me and by the sounds of it - others.
I'm a UK backer and I haven't received an email notification. I'm currently out of town and having to check my email for a delivery on a daily basis. I don't what to get something and not be there for it. When should I reasonably expect a tracking number email? Thanks for your time and help. Cheers
I have no problems with the game available in shops/online. I have problems with broken promises and little communication with the backers.
no horror meeples shown in the pic above?
UK backer. heard nothing. getting annoyed now especially as you can buy in shops / online apparently
not good PR guys, not good at all.
There are pros and cons to both approaches.
Shipping to nearest first allows them to test the delivery, things like whether the packaging is OK, how many destroyed packages they have to handle, does more or less padding is required etc. Any issues can be discovered immediately because of the close distance. This is the approach used by most companies. Obviously, the bad thing here is that ROW backers, already has a long transit time, needs to wait even longer.
Shipping to furthest first allows for "worldwide launch" on the same period of time, because most packages will arrive at roughly the same time. From the surface this is the fair approach, although you will have the close by backers complaining why they have to wait. The bad thing is that they better get the packaging right the first time, because by the time they receive feedback of any horror stories, everything is already in transit.
UK backer here. I can confirm I yet to receive any tracking information. I thought they go through tracking number. Backer #3965
Just gotta ask, why do those closest get sent first then those of us who are further away? Wouldn't it make more sense to ship furtherest away first so everyone gets their ganes around the same time...
Do you have promos or other goodies in booth 8-A146 for Sub-Terra? ;-)
Thanks for the straight forward (not convoluted) updates. I have another game I am eagerly awaiting, and these to the point updates are appreciated.
Do you have any specific details about the rest of the world? Canada, for instance? Are the packages going through a distributor once they arrive in Canada and will then be sent out from there? Thanks.
Eagerly awaiting my tracking number now :D
FYI - the email has the instagram user name link for aviewinsidethebox send us to twitter.
