Greetings Guys and Ghouls!  

The last update was titled "Breaking Non-News". This update is titled "Good News, Not-So-Bad News".  

First, the good news: After months of inexplicable delay, manufacturing is at long last underway and we have a projected date from the manufacturer.

Now for the not-so-bad news: It will be about ten weeks to manufacture and another two weeks to ship the product to us, so we don't expect to be in receipt of the 7th Guest Board Game until mid July. However, reality being what it is, it would be wise to pad out the time adding two or three more weeks, which would bring us to August. That would actually put us a month or more behind our original projected delivery date, but better a month late than never, I almost never say! ("Business at the speed of light" my arse!)

That's our story and we're sticking to it. At least until our next update.

Someday, I might write about our adventures in board game development and manufacturing. It would read like Kafka.

In other news...

There is a fine interview at eTeknix with Ryan Holtkamp who is leading the charge on The 13th Doll fan game. You'll want to check that out.

You'll also want to support Lawrie Brewster's crowdfunder for his next gothic horror venture, Automata. He did such an outstanding job on his previous movie The Black Gloves, this new tale promises to be even better.

      A month delay is nothing, bound to be a few hiccups, some of my previous are nearly two years overdue so not even breaking a sweat in the UK.

      If it's 7th Guest, it's all good. I have no problem waiting for another month. One question, though: when the game ships, will all of the peripherals (Stauf Mansion Model, etc.) ship as well?

      July 11. If you get it in time, that's when you should ship.

      7/11

      Fingers crossed.......

      I hope it does arrive in August for me. Sptember will be a bit difficult for me.

      Not too shabby. There’s some Kickstarters that were supposed to deliver in sept of last year that I’m still waiting for so you guys are in good shape.
      I was a fan of this back when it was pc game. It’ll be interesting how you rebooted it to boardgames.
