Everything is going very smoothly! We just received shipping quotes, which place the games into the states around mid June. The US orders will be going out first with the international ones shortly after. All add-ons are prepped and ready to go and will ship with your copies of METAL.
The games are looking really amazing and we are psyched for you all to get your hands on them!
Since going into production, we noticed that the steel boxes were not looking exactly the way we wanted. The steel box didn’t fit together properly and the stamping wasn’t working as expected. Not the type of quality you would expect from Jordan and Lay Waste Games. AND WE WON'T STAND FOR THAT!
We always had the option of aluminum, but originally didn't go with it due to a very high cost. However, thanks to the amazing folks at Panda (looking at you Joe Wiggins!), we managed to make it work and now all copies of METAL will come in an amazingly precise aluminum box! The box is cast and laser etched in aluminum, allowing for a precision perfect solution. Check out this video to see for yourselves!
PAX EAST PICKUPS
We are still not sure if this is going to be doable, and should know more in about a week. Coming down to the wire! But if it is, you will be able to swing by the Lay Waste booth to grab your copy, plus two free pins to make up for the shipping cost. One Pinny Arcade pin of your choice from Lay Waste, and one pin from Jordan as well. Stay tuned for updates!
For those not going to PAX, if PAX pickup happen, we will be air shipping your games from China to get them into your hands as fast as possible! The reason we are able to get you them this early via air shipping is because we are selling them at PAX East to balance out the added cost. We did this before with Dragoon and it worked out very well. Estimated time table is a few weeks after PAX for US delivery, and a bit longer for non-US, as the fulfillment center needs time to receive and dispatch all games. Once we have more solid details, we will send out another update.
After entering 2019, our fires have been burning bright, and production is about to begin for METAL! But first, we need to do surveys. And we are doing this quick, so please make sure you fill yours out ASAP.
TODAY: A small amount of backers will be receiving their surveys today so we can test the BackerKit system, making sure there are no issues.
TOMORROW: All remaining backers will receive their surveys.
We will be in touch with more dates for locking of addresses and charging of cards. But for now, stay tuned. A few quick notes on METAL:
Shipping increased by $1-2 based on your location due to increased shipping rates in the new year.
We are still working out details, but the box for METAL may be aluminum instead of steel. The steel samples we received simply lacked the depth of detail and refinement required. The upside here is an aluminum box would be of much higher quality, allowing for more details. YAY!
As always, if you have any questions, please let us know!
Thank you to each and every metallurgist who backed METAL!!! You are now part of something truly unique and we cannot wait to fire up the...umm...fires. Literally!
Once we get into the new year, we will send out links to BackerKit (our pledge manager) and provide lots of updates as METAL is made. Until then, feel free to ask us questions or make requests around what you want to see in the pledge manager.
