This is getting ridiculous. They are taking forever to deliver this game.

No problem for me. It should be as perfect as possible so don't hurry things up, Mike!

This is how Kickstarter projects go. There's no realistic way to speed the manufacturing process, which has many delays based on catching and correcting errors at the factory.

The only projects that deliver more quickly are those that don't actually need the funding from KS, so they run the campaign when most of this stuff is already done.

We will get the game soon enough and it will be awesome!

Yeah, but....at this point more frequent communication will calm concerns.

I'm in no huge rush either. But a regular update, even if there isn't much to add, is always calming to the Kickstarter soul.

It has been just over a month since the last update.

This is what always surprises me around Kickstarter projects, particularly in this case with a skilled writer involved!

Even if it's just a paragraph, an update each week takes very little effort and helps to reassure backers.

A weekly update? Many backers would would call that spam.

If you need weekly updates to sooth your kickstarter psyche, you probbaly shouldn't back KS projects.

This is always the knee-jerk response. "Kickstarter probably isn't for you".

I am aware of the risks/rewards, however I also enjoy the build-up to a game release, like I'm sure many do. There's something nice about hearing a few manufacturing details and being told about the developer's experience, while hearing about any snags in production/logistics.

The best Kickstarters, with the best rewards I have yet received, have had regular updates, from developers who like interacting with their audience.

So are we on time in terms of the adjusted schedule??? I got distracted by "life" - you job, kids, and lawn work. I would appreciate an update in the near future...For some reason I have September stuck in my head as an important month for FTZ? Am I right? Anyway, if anyone has any news please share

The latest KS update says the games are scheduled to leave the factory 9/14, and arrive at customs around 9/30.

Customs end of September probably means delivery end of October at best, FYI.
