I see on Facebook today that René has left MBG. With other delays and Mark in Georgia I just wonder if people planning to get their game in Essen managed to do so?

From the kickstarter comments on the last update:

Quote:
I picked up my game in Essen yesterday. It's just gorgeous. The materials and the box are of very good quality, paper-wise, and the art design looks even better in print than digital. Mark and all the others at the booth were very nice. Thanks for making this possible!


So it looks like Mark is finally getting things together and delivering on this kickstarter. I had all but given up hope that there was going to be a game (usually, if there's that much smoke there's a fire somewhere), so I think this is really positive.

I also got my game at Essen and hung out with Mark for a bit. It seems the partnership with Game Salute has gotten the gears turning again.

Got mine at Essen as well - hope it's worth the wait, but it looks good!

So why does Game Salute have no information about this game?

Any why did a few (less than a handful as far as I can tell) people supposedly get their game at Essen and yet 3 months later, the rest of the backers are still in the dark about getting their copies?

This is a massive failure and I see no evidence why we shouldn't believe Make Believe Games isn't truly make believe, and therefore a fraud.
