Warming up

Hello all!

Things are moving fast here, so we'll keep this update short and sweet.

ZR Advance is live!

We are launching ZR Advance ("the app formerly known as beta") today! It sailed through Apple's approval process with nary an issue and everyone who's pledged $45 (i.e. LOOKOUT level and above) should be receiving an email with instructions shortly.

Of course, you can all download the app - it's free on the App Store - but only people who bought beta access will be able to log in and play the missions. 

THIS IS IMPORTANT: This is not the final version of the app. The final version will have way more stuff and will look much, much nicer. In fact, the version we have in our office already looks way nicer (full Retina graphics, proper tutorial, better UI, etc etc.). So don't panic.

T-shirts and posters are being made!

Yep. As you'll have noticed, we opted for the Gildan T-shirts, for the greater good. We'll keep you updated on when they'll be shipped out, which shouldn't be too long from now.

If you're interested in this sort of thing, out of all the orders we've had, about 70% are from the US, then Canada, Australia, and the UK all have around 7% each, with the remaining orders from Austria, Israel, Korea, Mexico, Vietnam, Norway...

The full game: Late February

Of course, we want to release the game as soon as we can, but we've decided to aim for a late February release while still also getting as many features into the game as possible - and Kickstarter backers (i.e. you guys) will get the game at least a few days earlier than everyone else, via ZR Advance.

Barring disaster or an actual zombie apocalypse, though, we are absolutely committed to launching in February!

Action stations

We're hoping that today's release of ZR Advance will provide some useful feedback and data on how people play the game, and that we don't find too many bugs. So it's all systems go for us right now - we're on our final sprint to release! 

Stay safe and run fast,

Six to Start and Naomi Alderman
