Latest Backer-Only Update (#5) is up! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pixelpress/bloxels-build-your-own-video-games-with-blocks/updates
Hi Juju - things are going well! Trying to figure out all the logistics of manufacturing before we share the latest update. Also making great progress on the game, and looking forward to getting it in everyone's hands.
Hi guys, so what's happening with the project?
New Backer-only update live today, head on over backers!
Hi Santi, thanks for pinging us again, we changed some email servers and some messages were getting caught. Appreciate your patience and diligence!
Also sent three private messages across almost 3 weeks now with no response yet. Kindly acknowledge. Thank you!
Hi All, update coming end of this week. Sorry Juju, we changed some things with our email accounts and we did not see these messages come through. Still on track!
You guys still alive?. Update time, we like to know what's going on thank you.
So how's are things going now ?, Look forward to finally getting the game as we are going to be integrating this into our tabletop rpg setup, you're not the only ones that have ideas, lol, is it , December shipping now ?
Getting excited. Glad to see the blue changed color a bit. That should totally help stop the blue/purple swapping in areas of less then brilliant direct sunlight. Thank you for the changes. They will very much make for smoother interactions later. The munchkin is still pouting that the prototype board needed to be mailed back. He loved his chance at being a play tester...
@ Juju Seducer: thanks for the comments JuJu
Impressive additions you have made, still need invisible traps added to dungeons and stuff. Though I do understand, I am not IMPRESSED with the delay.
Hey all, our 3rd backer only update is live!
Hey Juju, we'll be sending out another update this week. Stay tuned!
Hi guys, two weeks later from last comment and my question is , are you STILL ALIVE?. Have a nice day.
Hey Juju, good timing, we are sending out an update this week. Thanks for the prod!
we know you are busy guys,but we have money invested in this project and ARE ENTITLED TO REGULAR UPDATES. Thanks.
@Cristal - apologize it was not more clear. You can add an Expansion set at the following link > http://www.bloxelsbuilder.com/ - if you email us at email@example.com we can also send you a coupon code for free shipping so that you don't have to pay extra beyond your current order.
There was no way to add the 20.00 to my pledge to get the extension set.... I tried several times.
We're going to wait to send out the survey closer to shipment so that we have everyone's latest address. We will be sending out an update next week though outlining next steps.
Shouldn't the surveys for addresses and so forth be sent out now? To all ks backers?
Thanks @Patricia - we agree, will be a great fit!
Thanks all, appreciate all your support and we are excited to be to this point. We'll send out an update outlining next steps soon.
Well done and now onto the important things, coming up with new ideas for Bloxels!!!. Congratulations guys.
Yeah I just got mine with like 3 minutes to go I was nervous
Way to go everyone! It's great to see like-minds come together to get amazing new projects off the ground! Thanks for all the hard work Pixel Press and thanks for the funds, backers!
Well done guys!! Can't wait to get mine :)
Wow, 764 backers! Thank you.
Thank you @Juju and thank you all. Has been such a pleasure & the fun does not end here!
We'll be in touch to update you on manufacturing progress, software, shipping and more. In the mean time we're putting up link for others to pick up their Bloxels Box Set (minus all the great Kickstarter bonus' you got in on for being the first to support us). Be sure to share with your friends.
What would the world do without us AUSSIE backers, lol.? Look forward to playing with the sets. Also we have been thinking of creating games using the Bloxels sets, based upon the Vault Tec , Vaults in Fallout 3etc,but for that to work dear devs , we would need switches, and stuff in the game, as well as those hidden traps we talked about a while back. Ones that don't show, traps that is , until you are on top of them. Well done Bloxels, must admit our other ks, Shemnue took us by surprise , fast mover that one . Keep UP THE GOOD WORK GUYS. Bye from Oz.
I just pledged the $100, $50 pledge + $30 for postage + $20 for the extra set. Another Aussie here too :-)
Another happy Australian packer here :)
I just pledged at the $50 level and add $20 for the extra board expansion set. Think I did it correctly. Am trying to transform my middle school library into a Makerspace. Bloxels sound like a perfect fit!
We had some great fun today showing off Bloxels to a group of high school juniors and seniors. They had a ton of fun and shared some awesome prototype ideas with us. Some photos up at: http://www.projectpixelpress.com/blog-list/2015/6/17/bloxels-game-ideas-with-xtreme-it-umsl-downtowntrex
@Pixel Press, and hello to you too!
@Alex - just add $20 to you current package, we'll see that it's over the normal amount plus shipping and confirm with you in the post-campaign questionnaire to make sure it's right.
Hi Pixel Press how do I add a Bloxel's Expansion set upgrade to my account?
Welcome friends from Australia, good to have you!
@David, thanks, appreciate you backing Bloxels! Yes, the set you ordered should be great for 10-15 kids.
Just ordered the team builder plus 5 extra boards. Half a class set should be more than enough for the kids to use :-)
Great project guys! I just hope that you continue to develop the apps and they're free after the campaign ends.
New photos and video are up of Saturday's Bloxels demonstration at the Saint Louis Science Center - click through to see them all. http://www.projectpixelpress.com/blog-list/2015/6/10/pixel-press-the-saint-louis-science-centers-new-makerspace
We just passed $50k, thank you @kickstarter and Nathan Miller for jumping in! 68 hours to go!
@Knightess Great to hear, thank you!
@ Andrew Dickinson: Yes! Well offer expansion pack upgrades after the campaign.
At the moment I have two copied pledged for, but I am worried I won't be able to stretch to that now.
I wonder if you might allow us to add extra copies on after the campaign? It'd be nice to know I had the option if I did have to reduce to just one copy for now.
Added my expansion pack on. Very excited to have several board and tons of blocks to play with...
Hi Carol, the additional $40 results in 2 expansion sets, which includes 1 gameboard each and 100 blocks each. So you'll end up with 4 gameboards and 700 blocks (250+250+100+100).
