Progress Update - Awaiting final illustrations, Vote for an Image & Late Backing Closed

Posted by I Will Never Grow Up Gaming (Creator)

Ahoy friends!

We are chugging along here on the good ship Nevergrowup!

I had hoped to have everything off to the manufacturer by this point but delays (as always) unfortunately happen. Thankfully we're just awaiting the final bits and pieces!

For now, I'll update you on what's happening behind the scenes!

PROGRESS UDPATE

Awaiting final illustrations Final Rule Book Proof reading/Edits .. otherwise ready to send the files for manufacturing!

What happens once the manufacturer has the files? They will put us in their queue, and provide digital samples for approval. When those are approved they will express what is called a "white box" sample for approval (this has all of the components but none/very little printed on it to verify the component quality and quantities). Once all the approvals and adjustments are made, it's off to the manufacturing and assembly lines then on to the ships for the journey overseas to fulfillment centers in the United Kingdom and Canada!

ILLUSTRATIONS + YOU VOTE!

We're currently waiting on the final illustrations, mostly for the Epic Encounters but also, excitingly, the Space Dog (crew "Mascot") and his Minions!

Here's a mock-up of the adorable pup and felines provided to the illustrator;

Crew Mascot "Space Dog" and his Feline Minions

We'd also like YOUR OPINION on one of the EPIC Encounter villains!

Which would you choose (left or right)? LET US KNOW IN THE COMMENTS!

Here's a quick taste of some of the other Epic Encounters you'll find as well;

LATE BACKING CLOSED

We have closed the Pledge Manager to LATE BACKERS. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to making this project a reality. Unfortunately we did not hit enough to feasibly unlock that final stretch goal (after failed pledges were taken into account), but the late backing has to end before we can send final numbers to the manufacturer to ensure we order enough (but not too many) copies!

All of you who have backed already can still access your Pledge Manager to provide us with updates and/or add-ons up until approximately 1 week prior to fulfillment. We will let you know exactly when that will be well in advance!

There are still about 8% of you who have not even logged in to your Pledge Manager. We will be sending re-invites and, in time, messaging each of you personally in the hopes of getting that info locked down.

What if I don't see/never got the Pledge Manager email?  

Check your spam folder. If you use Gmail, sometimes your invite will go to your "Promotions" tab.  

If you still can't find it, search your inbox for "PledgeManager"  

If that doesn't work:  

  • 1. Click - https://iwillnevergrowup.pledgemanager.com/projects/into-the-black-boarding-party-0/ 
  • 2. Click "Request New Invite" 
  • 3. Enter your email address (the one you pledged with) 
  • 4. Wait at least 10 minutes - then go to your email, open the invite, and click the giant button to confirm all your goodies 

And if that doesn't work, check the Pledge Manager FAQ page and submit a support request.

There's something wrong with my pledge! 

That does happen! If you notice something is awry, you can submit a support request or send us a message directly to info@iwillnevergrowup.com and we'll look at it for you.

What if I need to change my address? 

 As long as your items have not been shipped, you can always change your address. Just simply log back in to PledgeManager and make the appropriate change. However, if you change your country, additional shipping costs may apply.

Until next time, Cheers!

      I prefer the left the one on the right reminds me of the federal mark

      I like the right version better.

      @Tony and @Adam - I agree with the puzzled/cheeky look (could go either way). Cheeky villains are fun villains!

      But, at the same time, the one on the right is fancier .. fancy villains are fun as well.

      Such is the dilemma in this choice!

      In either case, both illustrations will be used, it's just a matter of assigning them to the appropriate character.

      I like the one on the left. He seems cheekier and that is always fun for a villain.

      I like the look of the first one more, but the helmet on the second one.. :) but I don't dislike either.

      @Rick Mann - Lol @ "Off to the pub" .. Pirates enjoy their drink, yeah? ;)

      @Braxxan - These images are not finished yet. Just flat colors. Highlights and lighting are still to come (these are progress images I've been sent).

      Seems like all the womens faces look like men and all the colours are very drab and lackluster.
      Maybe it's a military thing.

      left

      One on left looks like it could win a fight. One on right looks like it's off to the pub, or at least would spend more time fighting the attached quilt and other accessories than an enemy.

      I agree with Freddy regarding color choice

    17. Freddy

      I prefer the one on the left, though I think the yellow/gold color is a bit too cheerful for a "destroyer"... something darker (dark grey, or black) would suit him much better...
