      I'm with Brett B and his BS! I'd love an official update.

      When can we expect the next official KS update to come out?

      There is a new Monte design diary about vislae death and vislae ghosts. :-) https://www.montecookgames.com/invisible-sun-design-diary-5-vislae-ghost-play-experience/

      Monte has written a new design diary about long form magic. :) https://www.montecookgames.com/invisible-sun-design-diary-4-long-form-magic/

      Sean - no email for me either. I submitted my NDA and I filled out a request for info form from the MCG website, and no response. I know you guys are busy making great games but I've got a play testing itch that only Invisible Sun can scratch.

    8. John Medany on February 5

      Ok - so not entirely sure why things went astray but only fair to say that Sean is on top of things :)

      Heya, folks!
      I see your messages about not getting the playtester information and I'm investigating. I have a theory. Please stay tuned!

      I did get the auto response saying my request had been received when I filled out the form the other night. Nothing otherwise, yet. I just used the Ask A Question on the FAQ here to ping MCG. Hopefully someone will see that soon.

    15. John Medany on February 2

      I should say thats the contact form Sean said to fill in - My NDA was returned mid December ...

    16. John Medany on February 2

      I am trying to be understanding - but its now been two weeks without even an email to say the form has been received (i've now filed it in twice 10 days apart) ...

      I can't review the details of my pledge on Backerkit anymore, it displays the project as closed (when a project I've backed three years ago still has the review details button). Is this normal?

      I'm pretty sure there's no problem with my account, but I like to review things from time to time.

      I've not received a reply to my submitted completed NDA yet. I reckon the team are super busy. Time differences make things interesting as well.

      Ha, just had a friend text me to see if I had an update on the playtest (he's one of the folks I got an NDA from). Guess I haven't checked here in a couple of weeks. I haven't received a playtest email yet, either.

      @John I'm sure that Tammie is busy upon her return to the office.

      Hope we receive our Playtest emails soon

      I also am not annoyed, really eager

    21. John Medany on January 30

      NDA was signed within 10 mins of it turning up. Still not had the play test email however.

      Not annoyed - just eager

      Just found an email from December � Grrr, requesting NDA �. I've controlled PDF Expert via my intangible black cube and just sent a signed NDA. I'll keep my senses peeled for responses and Playtest materia. ���

    23. Thomas van Iersel on January 20

      So uh is it november yet?

    24. John Medany on January 20

      Just sent form as instructed. Thanks

      Sean:

      Nothing yet. Form submitted per your instructions below.

    26. Sean K Reynolds Collaborator on January 18

      We just sent out the playtest documents, so if your backer level gets you the playtest materials, please check your email. It might take a few hours to arrive, as the emails are sent in bursts so they're less likely to be mistaken for spam. If you still haven't received them by about noon tomorrow, let us know with the Contact Us form and we'll sort it out:

      Sean: I probably gush too much. I just want Monte to get that positive energy / excitement going.

      ...And I return you to Krzysiek's question..

    28. Krzysiek Piwowarski on January 17

      So about that playtest...how's that coming along?

    29. Sean K Reynolds Collaborator on January 16

      Thanks, Jim! We appreciate that you're excited. And we get it. :)

      Monte and Company,
      Thank you for the design diaries! I thought about asking for one, earlier this January, but I told myself to be patient because it was still in the wake of the winter holidays. It was a genuine pleasure to see my patience was rewarded. These design diaries do a lot to soothe the necessary waiting while you create and finish the game. I just wanted you and the team to know that I didn't take this update for granted. I look forward to hopefully reading another one next month!

    31. Sean K Reynolds Collaborator on January 13

      @Doug Smith Do you mean the playtest materials?

    32. Doug Smith on January 13

      Any word on ship date?

      Hello!
      It's me.
      I was wandering through the mazes
      of sunlit Satyrine.
      I've drunk thought wine
      Played the Screams
      There's no vestige left within me
      Just a baleful harmony.

      Oh the spells, we used to weave
      and the marvels of Between.

      Happy (belated) New Year peeps!
      Still not November, I see. :(

    34. Jim Groves on December 30

      @Sean C Campbell- Thanks for the reply! Good luck to those able to participate.

      @Jim Groves - Not yet. Early next year.

    36. Jim Groves on December 30

      I'm asking this only because I'm nosy. Has the playtest started?

    37. Dustin Alcala on December 25

      NOW I have more money. If you could just reopen the backer kit, I would GLADLY throw it all at you ;p
      ... all of it.

      @Daniel Flood please use the Contact Us form on our website—that'll let me put you in contact with Tammie via email replies, and she can get that sorted out for you (she is the master of BackerKit). :) http://www.montecookgames.com/contact-us/

      @seankreynolds I upgraded through the Backerkit from a pledge that originally included the the 'Set of 9 Wicked Keys'. The upgrade did not include this on the backit. Was asking regads the process of getting the set of Wicked Keys rolled over to the new pledge level.

      Watching a show called The OA on Netflix and I swear the lead actress is Shanna Germaine's doppelgänger.

      Shei on December 16

      Wonderful! Thank you, Sean! :)

    43. Sean K Reynolds Collaborator on December 16

      @Shei as long as you didn't completely cancel your pledge and make a new pledge, the sun you originally pledged under remains the same. If you changed your backer level (such as by switching to a "With a Key" backer level) or added add-ons, your sun doesn't change.

    44. Missing avatar

      Shei on December 16

      Hello!

      I don't know if anyone's asked this, but is there any way to verify under which sun I backed? I upgraded during a key fall, but I would like to stick with my original sun...
      I feel like it was mentioned in a post, but I can't remember which one!

    45. Sean K Reynolds Collaborator on December 2

      Salutations, people of the Actuality!
      Yesterday we posted another IS design diary from Monte:
      https://www.montecookgames.com/invisible-sun-design-diary-2-acquiring-different-abilities-with-different-experience-points/
      (FYI, I've been updating the IS "What Has Been Revealed So Far" article with links to the design diaries. https://www.montecookgames.com/what-has-been-revealed-so-far/)
      Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

    46. Sean K Reynolds Collaborator on November 18

      Greetings, vislae!
      We just locked down BackerKit for Invisible Sun. This means you're no longer able to make changes to your pledge level or add-ons through BackerKit. However, if you later realize that something isn't right with your pledge or add-ons, please let us know through the MCG Contact Us form and we'll make it right for you:
      http://www.montecookgames.com/contact-us/
      Keep in mind that we're a small team, so it may take us some time to respond to your requests for help, but we'll take care of you. We couldn't make Invisible Sun without your help, and we greatly appreciate your support and want you to be happy with your pledge.
      Thank you for making this project come to life!

    47. Jim Groves on November 17

      @Khalil: No worries. I overreacted. You were trying to help. My sincere thanks.

    48. Khalil on November 17

      @Jim, sorry if I jumped to conclusions earlier. Glad you got ahold of Tammie and your issue was resolved.
