We are committed to getting the game shipped out to you ASAP, while still maintaining a quality game. We would like to get it out to you before the end of the year, if possible. However, we also know that delays can happen completely out of the blue (examples: shutdown of the manufacturing plant, strikes at the ports, delays in artwork approval, etc.) The last thing we want to do is promise that it'll be here early, then miss the shipping date by months because of something going wrong. Still, we will make sure that your game ships as soon as we are physically able.
