Chances are that the game will get a retail release, but there are no plans for it as of yet I'm afraid. The authors are too busy working on the actual game, they'll be looking into future options once the game has been completed.

You can almost put your house on it. KS games usually use profits from pledges to fund retail production on the back of it.

There may not be a widespread release in FLGS - but I'm sure you'll find it on their website as an option to get an order.

Contacted the company:

Hi John and thank you for your interest in The 7th Continent,

We are currently focusing on our backers and the “Kickstarter version” of the game therefore we don’t know yet how and when the game will be available again.

Stay tuned on www.the7thcontinent.com to be informed when the game is available again for purchase.

So......theres a chance it might be available for retail. Not even a sure thing.

When do you all think would be the earliest it would be available for retail? Early 2017? I would hope late 2016 but that's probably wishful thinking.

I think there is virtually no chance that it will be available in 2016, even for Kickstarter backers. If we see it in Q1, 2017, that would be fantastic, but even that is on the hopeful side, since manufacturing hasn't even begun yet. The last update suggests that it will be a few months before all the design and pre-production is finished (e.g. graphic design, layout, editing, etc.).

I agree, it looks like we're at least 6 months out from getting the game. Looks like all those add-ons and minis are backing things up.
