ATTENTION! Update only for Pending shipments - Mostly International Shipments

Hello Guys,

Hope you guys are doing good. This update is ONLY for people that have shipments pending and have not been sent off. There is about 165-170 shipments left to do.

About 157 of those are international shipments outside of US, MX and Canada.

We have some mixed news for you... We ran out of plush toys. The factory owner finally started responding to us again, and he said that he lost a lot of employees and ran out of money. The plush toys left to do are almost done, but need the filling and the last stitching and he said he is looking for someone to finish them. But we have no clear timeline of when this is going to happen. Rather than keep you waiting, we have come up with a solution.

So we will give you 3 final options for you to pick, PLEASE ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS your decision.

Option 1- You will get $7 Refund to your paypal account for not receiving the Plush toy.

Option 2- You will get a free copy of RETRO Magazine Issue 13, AND the RETRO Magazine special book with 200 pages of retro content.

Option 3- We ship your reward until the plush toys arrive.

Those are the only things we can offer, and I hope you guys understand, as we were sort of scammed by this company and really messed up the fulfillment of this campaign. If it was not because of this, we would have fulfilled no later than October.

Picking one of those options will ensure your Reward will be sent in the next 5-7 days.

To see if you are in this group of backers, go to your backerkit survey, it must be marked as shipped/fulfilled, also look for a section called special notes, in that area there should be a tracking number if it has shipped, nothing if it has not shipped. If you don't see this section or there is nothing in this section, it means that yours have not been shipped and we need you to answer.

The rest 10-15  backers are backers that we have not shipped because their address if not being picked up by the USPS, or there is some kind of problem with their Address or the way they wrote them. We will contact you individually and will sort it out.

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Cheers!

Happy 2019!

Hello Backers!

We want to wish you a Happy 2019 from the Piko Interactive Team! We wish for you to have the most success and health for this coming year!

We'd like to just give out a quick update in regards of the games, they are all have been shipping none stop each day. We check everything is up to quality, assemble and ship out. So everybody should start receiving their games. I want to thank everybody for being so patient. You all should have your reward soon. Sorry we take all this extra time but we just want to make sure we make the least mistakes possible and everything is sent out with the upmost care.

We are disappointed in Backerkit as the main feature we wanted to use which is tracking number notification is not really what they had pitched to us. For the system to update you with your tracking we have to go through their shipping system and buy postage from them, which is a lot more expensive than going through our own account. So we have to add the tracking number on your backerkit public notes (doesn't send you an email). You will be able to find tracking there. We are currently assembling and shipping US/CAN/MX Special edition rewards. After done we'll start European shipments.

Thanks again!

Piko Interactive Team.

Hey guys quick shipping.

We've shipped out about 400 packages already, today USPS didn't pick up as they are not working today.

We should be done with Domestic regular editions this week and ship Domestic Special edition starting next week.

Then we move into regular edition International (out side of American Continent) and then Special International.

Then at the very end, we move into Special requests.

Thanks!

We've been shipping!

Since last Friday we have been shipping. About 50 packages a day.

We are done with carts only, now regular edition start. Then we start with special editions.

Hang in there. For special edition, we are working things out on the plushes hopefully everyone that has filled out a BACKERKIT Survey AND has responded to the plush updates through comments, will get a plush.

Tomorrow is the last day of shipping for this week, we'll be going to enjoy Thanks giving with our families. We'll start shipping on Monday again.

Happy Thanks Giving!

New Development on plush and final decision!
