Hey​ ​all, 

It’s​ ​been​ ​awhile​ ​since​ ​we​ ​posted​ ​a​ ​substantial​ ​update​ ​to​ ​all​ ​platforms​ ​for​ ​the​ ​public​ ​to​ ​see​ ​and we​ ​felt​ ​it​ ​was​ ​long​ ​overdue​ ​for​ ​a​ ​“where​ ​you​ ​at?”​ ​status​ ​update.  

For​ ​those​ ​of​ ​you​ ​not​ ​on​ ​our​ Forums​ ​or​ Discord​ ​(and​ ​you should​ ​be!​ ​We​ ​don’t​ ​bite),​ ​we​ ​are​ ​in​ ​the​ ​final​ ​stages​ ​of​ ​editing.​ ​We’re​ ​using​ ​a​ ​fine​ ​toothed​ ​comb and​ ​Grammarly​ ​to​ ​pick​ ​apart​ ​every​ ​sentence​ ​in​ ​the​ ​book.​ ​We’ve​ ​also​ ​been​ ​releasing “Pre-Release”​ ​copies​ ​of​ ​the​ ​book​ ​to​ ​those​ ​on​ ​the​ ​forums,​ ​Kickstarter,​ ​and​ ​Discord​ ​who​ ​have backed​ ​via​ ​Kickstarter​ ​and​ ​Backerkit​ ​every​ ​3​ ​to​ ​5​ ​weeks.​ ​That​ ​being​ ​said,​ ​those​ ​of​ ​you​ ​who remember​ ​when​ ​we​ ​did​ ​the​ ​Kickstarter​ ​over​ ​two​ ​years​ ​ago,​ ​remember​ ​the​ ​“June​ ​2016”​ ​publish date.​ ​We​ ​thank​ ​you​ ​profusely​ ​for​ ​your​ ​understanding​ ​on​ ​being​ ​a​ ​year​ ​late​ ​at​ ​this​ ​point​ ​and​ ​we hope​ ​the​ ​more​ ​frequently​ ​released​ ​Pre-Release​ ​copies​ ​have​ ​helped​ ​allay​ ​your​ ​unhappiness​ ​and prove​ ​to​ ​you​ ​that​ ​we’re​ ​not​ ​Vaporware.​ ​We​ ​still​ ​plan​ ​on​ ​going​ ​to​ ​print​ ​soon​ ​and​ ​are​ ​still​ ​in​ ​talks with​ ​our​ ​customs​ ​agents​ ​on​ ​how​ ​to​ ​best​ ​get​ ​the​ ​books​ ​from​ ​our​ ​printer​ ​in​ ​China​ ​to​ ​a​ ​port​ ​in​ ​the US.  

As​ ​for​ ​the​ ​book​ ​itself,​ ​it’s​ ​hovering​ ​between​ ​290​ ​and​ ​300​ ​pages​ ​and​ ​will​ ​be​ ​printed,​ ​case​ ​bound, in​ ​full-color​ ​on​ ​US​ ​standard​ ​letter​ ​paper​ ​(that’s​ ​8.5”​ ​x​ ​11”​ ​or​ ​215.9mm​ ​x​ ​279.4mm).  

We​ ​have​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​to​ ​consider​ ​after​ ​the​ ​book​ ​is​ ​sent​ ​to​ ​print.​ ​First​ ​and​ ​foremost,​ ​we​ ​intend​ ​to​ ​ramp up​ ​our​ ​marketing​ ​for​ ​the​ ​game​ ​(Live​ ​streams,​ ​Pre-recorded​ ​videos,​ ​etc.),​ ​while​ ​attending​ ​what conventions​ ​we​ ​can.​ ​Aside​ ​from​ ​that,​ ​we’re​ ​planning​ ​to​ ​assemble​ ​and​ ​release​ ​several​ ​of​ ​the campaigns​ ​that​ ​we​ ​have​ ​created​ ​over​ ​the​ ​years​ ​as​ ​free​ ​PDFs,​ ​but​ ​will​ ​probably​ ​explore print-on-demand​ ​options​ ​as​ ​well​ ​for​ ​those​ ​of​ ​you​ ​that​ ​love​ ​paper.​ ​There​ ​have​ ​been​ ​discussions of​ ​future​ ​expansions​ ​and​ ​other​ ​ventures,​ ​but​ ​,​ ​above​ ​all​ ​else,​ ​our​ ​primary​ ​goal​ ​is​ ​to​ ​support Shattered​ ​and​ ​foster​ ​the​ ​amazing​ ​community​ ​that​ ​has​ ​grown​ ​around​ ​it.  

The​ ​best​ ​and​ ​quickest​ ​way​ ​to​ ​get​ ​in​ ​touch​ ​with​ ​us​ ​devs​ ​at​ ​INDE​ ​is​ ​definitely​ ​through​ ​Discord​ ​as​ ​we​ ​can​ ​have​ ​real-time​ ​conversations​ ​with​ ​each​ ​and​ ​every​ ​one​ ​of​ ​you.​ ​While we​ ​monitor​ ​that​ ​the​ ​most,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​also​ ​find​ ​us​ ​on​ ​our​ ​​Forums​​,​ ​Facebook,​ ​Twitter,​ ​and​ ​Reddit.  

Thank​ ​you​ ​for​ ​all​ ​your​ ​support​ ​and​ ​patience,  
The​ ​INDE​ ​Team
