    1. Creator Eric M 4 days ago

      Ordered mine as well. Quite happy.

    2. Creator Leisa McBride on February 4

      Just ordered from Opsrey. It is very nice of them to offer this to us.

    3. Creator Jared Bond on February 4

      Just put in my order. Very classy of Osprey.

    4. Creator Jeff on February 4

      Just ordered my game and am very appreciative for their generous offer. Looking forward to playing this.

    5. Creator Eric on February 4

      Happily just redeemed my discount code from Osprey for their edition of the game (always been very happy with other stuff from them). Totally brilliant of them to make this offer to all of us. Shipping was free because I had a few other items I've had my eye on for a while. Looking forward to the end of the month when it ships.

      Still wonder what Seth actually did with all the money… (well probably spent it, but…)

    6. Creator Justin Lee on February 4

      Me too, Harrison. Let's just hope this game can live up to all this hype! Haha - happy gaming!

    7. Creator Harrison on February 4

      They're taking preorders now

      Pretty happy to admit I was wrong about this offer.

    8. Creator Justin Lee on December 17

      It appears that shipping to the U.S. will cost $3.50. What a scam! lol

      So cool of these guys to honor this corrupt KS. In fact, I'm gonna name one of my ravens Osprey. Wait. That's just confusing.

    9. Creator Tor Iver Wilhelmsen on October 19

      Well, I am taking my chances with Osprey, too. It seems from his project history that he managed to deliver some of the rewards for his earlier Kickstarters, but seems to not have studied how to do shipping etc. Though this particular one has the stench of a scam...

      Received from Osprey:

      "Thanks for your email!
      We are collecting people’s contact details for now,
      and will be in touch in January with further details.

      – The Osprey Games Team "

    11. Creator Thomas Wayne Diener on September 10

      IMO: the Osprey Art looks better than the KS art...

      From the Osprey Site blog:

      Philip Smith:
      "While we have no connection to the Odin’s Ravens Kickstarter, the simple fact is that a lot of people who supported the game had been stung. Right from the start of our discussions, we knew that we wanted to do the right thing by those backers, and I am very pleased to be able to say that we are going to be offering a free copy of the game to anyone who backed the Kickstarter. Regrettably, we do have to charge shipping, but we’re delighted the backers can finally get the game they deserve."

      'If you were a kickstarter backer and would like to recieve your free copy, we are currently collecting names. Please email your details to odin@ospreypublishing.com '

    12. Creator Harrison on September 8

      That's pretty good.

      Of course it's also possible Osprey was afraid the horrible outcome here would affect sales in some way. Either way (i.e., whether Mr. Gimmler negotiated it or Osprey decided it was the safe way to go) it's a nice offer

    15. Creator Harrison on September 5

      @rudy - To quote one of my favorite lines of all time: you have to receive something to be ungrateful. Point taken though, I'm just urging caution. That said I doubt Osprey did this out of the kindness of their hearts - I suspect the designer (Mr. Gimmler) is trying to do the right thing after a horrific licensing experience. (And for that I am grateful.)

    16. Creator rudy prico on September 4

      I don't think it is FAIR position to be ungrateful now. :-)

    17. Creator rudy prico on September 4

      I think it looks promising. Remember, Osprey was not obliged to give anything. They could just buy rights and publish it without any offer to backers. But they gave public promise to backers to deliver the game just for shipping. Kudos for them. I like art too. If you want to complain, complain to Seth or ...
      I don't think it is unfair position to be ungrateful now.

    18. Creator Harrison on September 2

      @Jason - Yeah, it would seem so, I hadn't heard of them, but that doesn't mean a thing. Their shipping rates seem reasonable too. Still, it's a very popular game, if it is actually published by Osprey it'll almost certainly show up in game shops in the states. I think I'm going to play it safe and buy a local copy.

    19. Creator Jason Middleton on September 2

      Interesting that Seth has deleted his Kickstarter account.

    20. Creator Jason Middleton on September 2

      @Harrison - Osprey isn't running a scam. Osprey is a HUGE publishing company.

    21. Creator Jared Bond on September 2

      This was one of my earliest KS projects. Fond memories. Amazed a game might actually come out of it. Not sure if I prefer the artwork, though.

    22. Creator Nils on September 2

      what "net scheme" means?

    23. Creator Harrison on September 2

      Remember Seth Nemec is an anagram... Net Scheme.

    24. Creator Harrison on September 2

      They're not giving you anything - you have to pay "shipping."
      It's another scam, cut your losses an move on. Nice tough though, the apology and links to places to contact about LONG expired refunds.

    25. Creator Michael Zions on September 2

      Just got the email. It's very nice that Osprey is giving the game to backers, considering that they have no obligation to this failed project. But it's still irritating that our pledges were more than their projected MSRP and we'll have to pay shipping on top of it. I wish that I had pursued a refund when it was still possible.

    26. Creator Beast on August 28

      The best new this day!

    27. Creator Justin Lee on August 28

      Praise Odin!

    28. Creator John R on August 27

      You beat me to it Wil, great news.

    29. Creator Wil Gerken on August 27

      This just in...

    30. Creator Mike Norris on August 19

      Hey, he logged in yesterday. Here is a list of things he didn't do:

      - Acknowledge his backers (aka the ones that bought him all that stuff off ebay without their approval)
      - Update the status on the game that is not being made
      - Deliver any of the unmade game
      - Assure us backers that he is not a fraudster

    31. Creator Takabrash on July 6, 2015

      Wouldn't it be hilarious if these just showed up in our mailbox one day?

    32. Creator Eric on April 5, 2015

      Glad to see Seth is hard at work on this - Last login Mar 17 2015 - guess he periodically logs in and laughs at everyone who foolishly thought the project was real.

    33. Creator Mike Norris on March 9, 2015

      Awww...4 days late from the funding anniversary. Another year and no word from the crook.

    34. Creator Thomas Vilfroy on February 5, 2015

      Never mind..I see where..under full bio!

    35. Creator Thomas Vilfroy on February 5, 2015

      How can I know when he logs in...since I gather others want him!

    36. Creator Gary on January 26, 2015

      Our funding anniversary is coming up guys!

    37. Creator Amit Arnon on January 24, 2015

      Well this sucks. Did everyone report this?

    38. Creator Mike Norris on December 26, 2014

      Yes, Merry Christmas Seth. Ts the season to be giving!

      You do know what that means right?

    39. Creator Brian Frahm (@frahminator) on December 23, 2014

      Merry Christmas Seth. Hope your family treats you well this Christmas. Some of us hold out a glimmer of hope that someday you'll come around and deliver on your promise.

    40. Creator Jared Bond on December 5, 2014

      Yep, we're still watching for him.

    41. Creator Sam Cannon on October 24, 2014

      I'd love to know why he logged in yesterday on October 23rd 2014.

    42. Creator Colin Campbell on September 10, 2014

      I would love to know why Seth logged in this January.

    43. Creator Thomas Vilfroy on August 31, 2014

      Another year of failed promise for the project will have gone by tomorrow.

    44. Creator Thomas Vilfroy on May 10, 2014

      Well I just wish kickstarter would do more than get their cut and say "you backers are on your own" attitude. Maybe that lawsuit hopefully might persuade the folks at kickstarter to do kore than get their cut of the money. They should be held just as accountable as the developer!!

    45. Creator Jason Middleton on May 6, 2014

      I still think it's hilarious that the last tweet that Seth ever sent out on his Works Ltd. twitter feed was to the Kickstarter for The Emperor's New Clothes.

      Y'know, hilarious and infuriating. It can be both.

    46. Creator Jason Funk on May 5, 2014

      Heh. Was just coming here to post that. Any of our 679 backers from WA? Let's hope the suit is a success and more accountability can be ensured...
