On their Facebook page in the update for October 29th Ares shows us pictures of map tiles 21-24. The thing that caught my attention is that between them these tiles have 10 socket connections and 0 plug connections.

I'm hoping this indicates that they've changed all tiles to exclusively socket connections with a presumed set of "small double headed plug pieces" to join them.

I didn't notice that, but you're right. Having a set of connectors would certainly make map building more flexible in the long run.

Those pictures look great, hopefully when we have the physical copy, it'll be easier to figure out which lines are crossable and which ones aren't.
The artwork itself is impeccable! Really dig the fences on the first one.

main question is...When are we going to be getting it?.it was supposed to be out by now..but still no firm date on the shipping date...but why am I surprised its a kickstartershake
its all very well showing us the game which has been happening for months now.at various shows around the world.but we have had virtually no info about estimated shipping dates for us backers.
just another thing guys.[I think this as been mentioned a few times in the past]..not everyone uses Sadbook.and shouldn't game info be going on the KS page before Sadbook?

all in all the game looks great.but would like to be kept up to date

I think the Facebook/KS issue comes down to this: Ares does the Kickstarter, Gremlins do the Facebook page. And Gremlins never sleep, but they seem not to be able to post KS updates (presumably because they're not Ares).

As regards shipping dates: My best bet is they don't know either. It seems between the stretch goals and Ares'/Gremlins' quality control, mass production of the minis hasn't really started, has it? So, to be honest, I personally don't expect the project to ship before March next year (though I could be wrong and the game gets here much faster).

They're still doing updates on the KS, usually one week after the FB update.

I don't use FB either, but we can still check the updates over there. Updating FB makes sense for them in trying to reach more players that aren't already backing the project. I'd like them to do both updates at the same time, but can manage the current situation too.

Might be. OTOH all tiles shown are rooms. So maybe all rooms have sockets and all corridors have plugs? If they add some 2x2 'rooms' with corridor graphics that would provide pretty much the same flexibility.
