I came across the following post on Facebook. After Craig Robertson already having left the company, this certainly doesn't seem to bide well for 1A's/TOI's future...


OK, so over here most of you know me and what I've done, but I'm reposting it here on my own timeline because I don't know who among you might know something useful to me; so, here goes:

Looking for a New Position
Hi all! The name kind of says it all, but here goes anyway; I'm Chris Williams and for the past two years I've been with 1A Games (makers of Tide of Iron under license from FFG) - and for the last 1.5 of those years, I've been the Operations Manager.
It's been a good ride at 1A, but the time has come for me to move onto something else.
In my 25+ years in the industry, I've worked in retail, wholesale, both for and as a publisher, and as a freelance writer and editor. Some of the companies I've worked for include R. Talsorian Games, Chaosium, and Green Ronin. I've done shipping, sales and marketing, project management, and line management.
I'm just putting this out in case anyone here is hiring, or knows of someone in the industry that is.
Thanks!

Certainly would be nice if we, the fans, could get an update!

While I agree that it would be best if we could give you some kind of information, I am not free to do so at this time.

As, I think, has been mentioned on the KS page, 1A will be resolving all of the remaining rewards and stretch goals due to the backers of the project.

Beyond that, 1A is not free to make any announcement at this time; although, one should be forthcoming shortly.

Thanks Willem for posting this, and thanks Chris for responding.

1A can do whatever it needs to do, and ToI can evolve into whatever it is going to evolve into, but what I want to say is that I have been privileged to meet and get to know a great group of people like Willem through 1A. I have gone on and have been play testing for others, and 1A has been a great stepping stone for me in that regard.

If ToI picks back up, we are all still here, eager to be a part of it.

Chris, I have seen you in action and know how you think, so with confidence I can say that you will do fine. As far as I am concerned, we still have some projects to work on together, so you just have to keep us updated to let us know what great new thing you have found yourself a part of!

---John

Bonus scenarios, scenarios featuring Sigs and artillery decks. I hope they mean it also includes add-ons as i've personally ordered painted figures as well.

Thanks for the update Chris, looking forward to the rest of the items from the Kickstarter. I regret not adding on those sIG's, was figuring those would still be available after the Kickstarter.

So Chris, where we at now?
How about fulfillment of KS SGs?
Where to look for this announcement?
Is 1A Games & ToI still alive?
