The estimated delivery was August 2013 and it's now November 2013 and I haven't heard anything about delivery of my game or an explanation for a delay.soblue
Does anybody know anything about this?

Just got this reply to a direct email.

There were delays with artwork and now we're waiting on the physical proofs. The past few updates have covered we're waitin' on the proofs, and from there, they're on the boat to the US.

Let's keep our fingers crossed for delivery in time for Christmas.

Io,

Just updated today; heard back from the printer that the proofs should be here by the end of the week. After approval, they'll be on the boat. Oh yeah!


Best,
P

Io folks,

We're lookin' at New Years' as the approximate delivery date due to Amazon doing fulfillment and it hitting them in the middle of the holiday.

If there were other 5th Street titles in the backings, we can get you taken care of. Details here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/5thstreetgames/baldricks...


Best,
Phil

@Mark: We're finalizing the shipping details for the factory this week. It should hit the ocean from the factory later this week.

Thanks Phil, the ocean is a big place.
Are we looking realistically at 6-8 weeks before door step delivery?.
Seriously, I don't mind at all, just like to keep a tab on my kick starter games - delays happen, it's the not knowing a realistic door step date that becomes frustrating with these things.

@Mark: Quick answer - Lookin' at about 4 - 5 weeks to get to me, then 2 - 4 weeks to get to International backers.

I completely agree with you with uncertain delays being a frustration in a campaign. That's what both the major delays in this particular campaign were, unfortunately. (Artist personal emergencies & plant back-ups for the physical proofs) I'm looking at how I can better account for such occurrences in future campaigns, such as longer lead times and multiple artists at once. I do my best to learn from errors and setbacks.

FORTUNATELY, though, it DOES hit the ocean this week. : D


Best,
Phil

Thank Phil, these things happen!.
It's nice to have a realistic time frame in the head, I'm sure it frustrates you much more than any individual backer
