Boxes, labels and bubble wrap. Its all happening.
We are currently in the thick of packing everything up here in the USA. Yesterday we got all of the unique orders completed and today we tackle the bulk of the orders. If you are in the US your shipment will be on its way soon.
I stepped away to respond to some messages and post this so I will make it quick so I can get back to it. It is a family affair here, even some of the kids are helping. I am going to do a facebook live video later today once we get rolling on the bulk of these orders. It will be posted on the portal dragon facebook page.
EU friendly orders
All pre-orders from the EU were charged the EU friendly shipping prices. So if you pre-ordered and are from the EU or did an EU friendly pledge this section, however brief it, is for you. Spiral Galaxy will be shipping the games for the EU. They have received the shipment, completed inventory and everything is in good order. They are processing the addresses and should start shipping this week.
The rest of the world
If you are not in the USA or did not order with EU friendly shipping your shipment will come from China through VFI. They have all the info and are preparing for the shipments but they have not yet received the units from the manufacturer. I have been bugging the manufacturer a lot. I paid for the shipment for over a week now. Needless to say this is another frustration, but I am working on it.
A Fun Video
On a more positive note I have really been abusing my plastic cards and they are holding up great. Check this video if you want to see how resilient they are.
The response to Palm Island and other Portal Dragon games at GenCon was overwhelming. Our small booth was packed all day everyday. I had a hard time squeezing through people to make it to meetings. We have already had a bunch of reviewers and fans posting about games they played on the plane, a big chain store is interested and tons of publishers are opening talks about localization.
I am so excited for the future of Palm Island and Portal Dragon. All of you have made this possible. From the bottom of my heart I cannot thank you enough.
OK, so this wasn't all that brief. I am sure I will have more info coming soon.
Thank you so much,
