ONLY ONE WEEK remaining to update your shipping addresses!

Happy new year, folks!

This time next week, I (Anne) will be on my way to Madison, Wisconsin, where Becca and I will be starting the process of physical reward fulfillment for Seventh Circle. The merch is starting to come in and we have a label printer and everything! This is wild stuff.

With that in mind, you have one week remaining to update your shipping addresses in BackerKit. How do you do that? By visiting https://seventh-circle.backerkit.com/ and recovering your survey, then entering your updated shipping address when prompted. We will send a final reminder on Tuesday, January 22nd, and then you'll have 48 hours to make a last change.

Having accurate addresses for y'all means no returned packages, which means cheaper shipping fees for us and less time between you and your rewards. So please, if your address has changed since Spring/Summer 2018, update it or double check!

Physical rewards will be going out between the last week of January and the launch of the game in April, based on manufacturing times for different items. If you know your address might be different in April but you aren't sure of a new address yet, please reach out to us and we'll figure out a solution. 

Here's a sneak preview of the enamel pins, which turned out incredibly cool. I can't wait to get mine? ANYWAY.

Peace, love, and magic, 

Anne & Becca

October & November Update: Release Date Announcement, Patreon Pause, and More!

Posted by Rock Candy Games (Creator)

Hi everyone! Happy fall. We have some pretty big announcements regarding the game’s release date, physical reward fulfillment, and so on.

1. We are setting Seventh Circle’s official release date for April 2019. We anticipated having the game done by December, but here’s the thing: it ended up longer than we thought! We’re talking several extra hours of content—the total script for this thing is going to be between 180,000 and 200,000 words, which is about the same length as The Goblet of Fire. We originally anticipated between 125,000 and 150,000 words. More words take more time to write, obviously. But, by delaying the release date a few months we can give you significantly more story and a better game overall. We want our game to be the best it can be. Since we’re essentially a two-person team and this is our first project of this exact nature, we want to avoid running ourselves into the ground to create Seventh Circle, without sacrificing quality — we believe in keeping creators happy and healthy so they can make their best work, and we can’t except ourselves from that rule. So that means we need a little more time. We appreciate the support and love you all have heaped on us (HEAPED!) and we think you’re going to love this expanded final product. 

2. Physical rewards will now ship in January. The game itself is the only thing being pushed to April. You will have until January 15th, 2019 to update your shipping addresses in BackerKit, via this URL: https://seventh-circle.backerkit.com/

3. Our Patreon is paused for the time being! We’ve decided to hold off on producing extra canon content until the game is 100% finished and released. Patrons are likely already aware of this change, but in case you missed that announcement, here’s a heads up.

Those are the three big things. We also want to give a shout-out to anyone we saw at a convention—FlameCon, Keystone, or NYCC! It was amazing to meet backers in person, and hear how excited you are for the game.

Finally, we want you all to know that we’re open to any and all questions from our backers. Please feel free to open a line of communication with us if you have questions, comments, concerns, etc. We know that a delayed release date is nobody’s favorite thing in the world, and we are happy to chat with you all more about the game and the new, very beefy and delicious story content we’re adding.

Thank you, sincerely. And keep being awesome.

August & September Update!

Hi everyone!

This is a DOUBLE UPDATE for the months of August and September, because you may have noticed that you didn't hear from us in August. There's a pretty simple reason for that, which is: we've been super busy! We've done two conventions since mid-August (Flamecon and Keystone) and have another one coming up (New York Comic Con, October 4th - 7th; we also spent a week in a cabin in the north woods of Wisconsin on a Rock Candy work retreat, where we had a lot of important conversations about Seventh Circle. 

With that in mind, we should have some announcements for all of you in the coming weeks! We are super excited to share what we've been working on with y'all and give you more insight into what the game will look like and when you can expect to be playing it. 

If you're going to be at New York Comic Con, definitely stop by and find us in the Artist's Alley, table E10. We always love chatting with backers (and shoutout to those of you we saw at Flamecon, you were awesome). 

As always, thanks for your support, patience, and enthusiasm.

Keep being awesome,

Anne & Becca

Hi y'all!

This is a loving, friendly reminder that BackerKit surveys will close on August 1st, meaning you have just about one week remaining to adjust your pledge questions, purchase add-ons, and get additional downloads of the game at the early bird price of $10. 

Our preorder store is here, and you can use this link to recover a lost survey.

A quick note: You WILL still be able to change your shipping address after August 1st! The lock down only affects your reward selections. Additionally, if your reward included a commission, you will still be able to change your request--we will be handling commissions via email.

Thanks so much for your support! We continue to plug away. Remember that we have a Patreon, if you'd like extra Seventh Circle content while you wait.

Keep It Up,

Anne & Becca
