That's probably due to people that didn't had a 8 months delay to get it.

So sorry for the delay, Duarte. We really hope you find the finished game worth the wait!

I'm not able to be at tendon but I have sent a friend deep undercover to buy me a copy. Though I think I might have sent her to the Kickstarter room and not your booth, is their copies to buy both places?

I'm really sorry but we pointed out many times during the project the intended delivery was March not January. And yes we are late for that and I'm sorry but what I'm delivering today is much better

Nope, they'll only be for sale at the booth! You can tell her it's #2908!

Am I right in saying that having something to Thumb Up improves the hotness?

We should get organized and thumb things,

like the Box art:

8 months is nothing compared to some KS campaigns. For such a small team of dedicated individuals, I think you've done yourselves proud.

One artist I backed decided to burn the books he produced because he totally under estimated the shipping costs and ran out of money. He was kind enough to share a video of him burning them because I'd given him additional funds...twice after an arbitrary deadline. Some months later someone manged to find a few remaining copies and kindly sent me a copy, unbelievable generosity...or an elaborate ploy in the name of art all along....hopefully I'll never know.

8 months late is trivial in comparison and watching and being involved with the development processes here and on KS has been far better than numerous other projects. Well worth the wait I say!

PS: please dont burn my copy of VAST

Night fell and the hours dragged on, but still we murmured to each other of the King and the Pallid Mask, and midnight sounded from the misty spires in the fog-wrapped city.

We spoke of Hastur and of Cassilda, while outside the fog rolled against the blank window-panes as the cloud waves roll and break on the shores of Hali.

Awesome! Now climb that ladder and kick Scythe in the shins!

(... apologies to any Scythe fans. Last year my wife and I were saving for our move back to my home country and I needed to make a tough decision as to whether I keep my pledge for Vast (then Trove), or drop it in order to back Scythe instead. Don't regret my decision at all, but the Hotness... it mocks me )

I have backed 92 projects (probably 200+ if I counted the cancelled ones too) and this was one of the best run campaigns I have seen. Yes, they are a bit late (in KS world this is like nothing) and I'm happy to wait a bit more for a good game after a well run KS campaign.

Seems like you're right:

But, if the image gets lots of thumbs, it might appear on another list and draw more people in...possibly....blush

Nope, happy it's on the way. Also happy it's been successfully received at Gencon and Leder Games are getting positive reviews.
