There's a physical box.

Quote:
Here are some additional pictures of the proof copy we received from the manufacturer.
































Of course, some people are already piling on in the comments. I am just watching and waiting at this point. I would probably do the same thing if I were them -- get this out and get it done, damn the comments. They realize this is not going to be a Kingdom Death Monster hit, so they just want to get the game out there and be done with it.

The sense of entitlement Kickstarter has stoked in some people drives me to despair. I'm not even reading any comments anymore, they're usually more worthless than YouTube's.

e: in this case I could not resist. One day I will build that device that tasers me when I read comments.

one of the very few time I agree with Magic Pink.

I think "entitlement" may be the wrong word, but when it comes to KS projects that didn't pan out, these guys are way ahead of the game. Most projects that run into this much trouble simply give up.

Late and less isn't great, but it's still better than never and nothing.

I paid for it as well and I am also waiting on it. Progress updates are a good thing, yes.

But.

The person mentioned in the comments is repeatedly shitting on the looks of the game, the white rulebook front page, and so on, which helps nobody.

That's what I'm talking about.

I agree with Aaron.
So glad we're getting something. Plus, I think it looks great!
Although, I am dismayed that within the couple pages they show here, there are several grammatical and spelling errors. Hopefully, the game is playable, and fun would be nice too.

To be fair, the game does look like ass. But everyone who has been following the KS should know by now that the money is basically gone and last I had heard there's barely anyone left working on the game. It may look awful, but I'm shocked that it may actually see the light of day.

That was said to be a proof copy, which does typically does mean only one or two exist.

More strange though was the update after that one which shows what appear to be large stacks of printed cards. Based on those pictures I would think everything is printed and sitting... somewhere by now. Maybe the factory never received final payment so they never released anything. That wouldn't surprise me at all.
