Hello Mezo Backers!
Last update we discussed a number of items pertaining to the pledge manager and Pyramid add-ons. We hope that those of you that were interested got a chance to upgrade your pledge to include these. And for those of you that missed out, they will be a product available from our web store when Mezo is finished being produced.
The Wonders of the Ancient World
We have 3D printed the pyramids to make sure they fit together and look cool! The color of these is not final.
In addition to those colorful pyramids! We are finishing our internal file review and will be sending these off to the factory right after the holidays to start production! We cannot wait to see this game come to fruition!
Let's take a look at the Production Calendar. As we feel based on our previous campaigns that this shipping calendar and proposed delivery dates were confusing. We want to make sure that we continue to be as open with information as we can going forward. That's what these monthly Third Thursday updates are about.
The Kickstarter ended on October 21st. Shipping is scheduled to begin 8-10 months after the Kickstarter so in late June. Our previous calculations for Estimated Delivery Date were made originally to inform when shipping began. Which means that Backers closer to the factories in the Asia regions would have their copies shipping at this time. The rest of the world would have their copies loaded into container ships and shipping to fulfillment centers in North America and Europe.
We understand that these Estimated Shipping dates we had been using in our Kickstarters were unintentionally misleading the majority of our backers into believing that their copies of these games would be arriving sooner than they would.
We are really sorry for that miscommunication. This is one major change we'll be making to our campaigns going forward, to adjust estimated shipping date to reflect when the majority of our backers are expected to receive their games.
We will, of course, keep updating you all on these production details on these monthly updates until the games are all in the hands of backers in 2019.
Asia Can expect to see their copies in June/July.
Australia & New Zealand Can expect to see their copies in August/September
United States & Canada Can expect to see their copies in August/September, with Canadian games being shipped 1-2 weeks after US copies.
Europe & UK Can expect to see their copies in September.
In addition to bringing Mezo to all of the incredible people who supported this campaign, we're excited to see this on store shelves next fall!
We want to thank everyone again for supporting Kolossal Games and this campaign. We have a lot of exciting announcements and new games to bring to Kickstarter in 2019 and we hope that we can count on your continued support! Speaking of exciting announcements...
