Hey Carma Backers!

Time for a quick update on your physical goodies! We've started sending out the first batches of rewards and many of you have already received your postcards (we even stuck in an extra one for you - we’re that damn nice!). 

The next batch, which will include our lovely Backer t-shirts, will commence after the 18th April 2014 - so now’s your chance to let us know if your mailing address has changed. 

To check the address we currently have for you, please visit our Backer site (http://backers.carmageddon.com). If your address is incorrect, send us a message either through the Backer site (by clicking on the ‘Contact’ tab at the top of the page) or by sending us a Private Message through Kickstarter and we’ll get it updated for you. 

Please make sure that your address is correct by the 18th April 2014. We will be unable to change addresses for you after this date. 

Please note that any physical rewards specifically related to the game will be shipped when the game is fully released. This includes rewards such as the game in a box, alternative models, skins and accessories DLC.
