Maze of Games: shipped, Penny Arcade store, and the Audiobook Kickstarter


Hey folks. Just want you guys to know that all but about 100 of the physical rewards have shipped. If you haven't received a notification from us about your books, maps, and the like, you'll probably get one in the next few days. PDFs are going out shortly, and other electronic rewards in the next few weeks. We're very happy to be almost done with getting your books to you.

We also have a lot of big news today.

The Maze of Games audiobook Kickstarter

This is live.

You can go to our new Kickstarter campaign and pledge for a copy of the Maze of Games audiobook, with masterful narration by Mr. Wil Wheaton. We're making a really fun audio experience with the novel text (not the puzzles). There's music by Austin Wintory, Marian Call, Paul & Storm, and Kirby Krackle. The first 100 backers will get a exclusive audio puzzle. Read all about it on the Kickstarter page, and if you like what you see, pledge away. 

FYI, we won't be updating this page with updates from the new Kickstarter much. If you want to keep up with the progress of the audiobook and the campaign, follow along over there.

Ordering more copies of The Maze of Games

Lots of you have been asking about how you get more copies of the book. Here's the answer: You get the hardback at the Penny Arcade webstore. Please head over to there if you just want a hardback, not the audiobook. If you want the audiobook, you can combine your Kickstarter pledge with a copy of the hardback and/or the ebook.

The ebook and soundtrack will be orderable when they're ready to go, which won't be too long from now.

The Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume is also available now over at the BPAL site

Cool day. Please enjoy the awesome, and thanks for supporting The Maze of Games.

      Still no physical copy, and no shipping notice. The PDF is nice, but sure would be good to know the real book isn't lost.

      FYI, as a note to folks eagerly awaiting their book - even though I filled out the change of address form, my book was shipped to my old address. I got mine due to the courtesy of my former neighbors. So, if you haven't gotten your physical gift yet and moved in the last year, see if it was mistakenly mailed to your old address.

      It's been a long time to have problems with email filtering. Are you going to get outside help?

      I haven't received a notice yet. We just moved; how can I check if I have my new address listed?

      The ebook and soundtrack are still a couple weeks out.

      We tried to launch the PDF today, and we had an email filtering problem that bollixed things. We will try again shortly. Grump.

      Yes! My copy arrived in the post on Saturday. It's wonderful!

      Is the PDF version available too? If so, how do we get it?

      Also, did I miss the notice about the Maze of Games - Solvable eBook, and Digital Soundtrack of The Maze of Games by Austin Wintory? Are they out as well?

      Thank you.

      Is the PDF out and got lost in my spam filter?
