This is me in front of ten pallets of The Maze of Games.
Several thousand copies of The Maze of Games arrived at our warehouse yesterday. We are, as you might expect, delighted. And so we can finally begin the process of getting copies out to you. It's not a short process, but it's finally underway.
Step one is confirming all shipping addresses. We have been tracking address changes as we go, but if you have moved in the last year, please go here and fill out this form. We want to make absolutely sure your address changed in our system. Even if you have submitted an address change, please do it. If you haven't moved since you filled out your initial survey or After the Crowd info, you're fine.
Step two is sorting and preparing all the physical products for shipping. We have all the hardbacks, Gatekeeper's editions, pencils, maps, bookmarks, and cryptexes in house and ready to be prepped for shipping; art prints will soon follow. It will take a while to number and sign the many hundreds of books that need such a treatment. We hope to have this process completed within a couple of weeks, and everything shipped out sometime in July. Please be aware that we have thousands of orders, and cannot respond to individual requests to prioritize one over another.
Information about access to the PDF will be included with your order.
The ebook and soundtrack are not yet finalized, but a lot of progress has been made on both. A lot depends on Apple and other things we can only moderately control. But we hope to have this process completed soon.
If you have a special reward such as a thank you video or Google hangout, you'll get a personal message from us about that.
Are you in Seattle?
We're thinking of having a release event in Seattle. If you are in Seattle, and are interested in picking up your order at such a hypothetical event, please send an email with the subject "Seattle" to firstname.lastname@example.org (after caesar shifting that 13 places in the alphabet, of course).
Almost here. Thanks as always for your patience, and your support of The Maze of Games.
