So the new update confuses me a little bit. It sounded to me like they would be shipping out really soon, as oppossed to the June date that we've been given. This seems really unlikely, and I'm sure I'm extrapolating something that isn't there. Can anybody straighten me out?

Thanks!

I think this shows they finished processing our surveys and are confirming address to make sure we entered it all in correctly.

What update? The latest one I've seen is from February 11 which doesn't mention anything about shipping.

Indeed, Feb 11 is the most recent update. What is the OP referring to?

He is referring to the email that backers received today, subject line "Shipping Soon":

Hello!

Fief - France 1429 is getting ready to ship rewards. This is the address you provided in your survey response:

address here

If this is the correct address, you're all set.

If this is NOT the correct address, update it here. Please make any changes within the next 48 hours.

Same. Kinda worried I haven't seen it yet.

The message makes it sound a lot like everything is ready to go. So soon is surprising.

You will note in the email it says the expected shipping date shows as Jun 2014, which is the original intended ship window. I think this is just confirming the surveys.

I did notice that at the bottom, and it likely means things are still the same, but it also could be a small unchanged detail.

It was this bit:

Fief - France 1429 is getting ready to ship rewards.

that threw me for a loop. It could be read a couple different ways, but I guess it just sounded really eminent to me. That being said, I'm not sure how the kickstarter could be done such a short time ago and have them already to ship the game and rewards, so it's likely still June. Also, it really doesn't matter in the end, I was just curious if anyone had heard anything recently that might confirm or deny my (admittedly shakey) interpretation of the e-mail.

The game is still not produced, so will not be shipped next week !
I guess it's a generic KS sentence.
The release date stays june.

Agreed with this. KS sends the same email for all projects to confirm the mailing address. I'm assuming it's a form email that can be automatically distributed by the KS originator at any time after the funding window is finished.

I'd say the wording is just bad.

They processed our surveys and want to make sure our shipping addresses are okay, but the game still has to go through production.

For people who didn't receive the email, just give it some time. Similar to the delayed surveys it seems that certain groups get to give them feedback before the next group. Probably to lighten the load of requests.

This is the first email of the sort that I've ever received from Kickstarter.

Kickstarter usually sends out address confirmations 2 weeks before shipping, so I'm wondering if this was a glitch in the system.

If not, I'm kind of worried, as I haven't gotten this email yet.

Just got a message from Uwe Eickert, the email is probably a mistake / KS thing:

... I do not know why Kickstarter sent out this email. We still are planning on shipping in late June ....
