The KS page says April 2017. Unless CMoN has made an official announcement, it's all speculation.

Considering the fact that they haven't even finished making everything yet, any answers you will get here are just wild speculation. It probably will get delayed, as most CMoN projects do, but you will get your game. Eventually.

From who? Even the usual pessimists aren't going that far out with their delay guesses.

The suggestion by CMoN made before even the KS began was: that the APRIL 2017 delivery date had ALL the usual delays pre built in to the estimate.
They said they learned from previous experience and decided to give the REALISTIC timeframe.

I still don't get it. It says right on the front page of their Kickstarter "Estimated Delivery April 2017."

I'll believe it when I get my package in april. Until then I will assume a delay of at least a couple of months. I suggest others employ the same frame of mind or you will likely be disappointed/frustrated.

This is the attitude I take to all KS. CMON have stated they've put a realistic estimation on the delivery date because they have done so many but it is still at estimation so it is likely to be delayed beyond this. Anything that doesn't come straight from CMON is just speculation though.

Yes, and CMON didn't just earn experience with this now. They've done a gazillion kickstarters and as far as I know, they've basically all been at least somewhat delayed. So maybe they have learnt to be on schedule this time, or maybe not. I wouldn't bet on the former.

If KS has taught me anything, it has been: 1) Patience; and 2) The ship date is usually wrong. Out of the 25 or so projects I have backed, I can't think of a single one that made the ship date. Either some cards were printed wrong, miniature sculpts had imperfections, gremlins pooped in the boxes, yada, yada, yada. . .

That being said, with only one exception, I have been thoroughly pleased with the games once they got here. KS versions of games always have some neat exclusive content, as well as cool stretch goals (this game has an insane amount of the latter!). I backed Xenoshyft, from CMON, and if memory serves it was a couple of months late at least. However, the game was excellent, both in components and gameplay.

I'm not trying to steer anyone away from KS (quite the contrary) - except those who have problems with immediate gratification issues. If ya gotta have it now, wait for the retail version to come out.

That's quite funny.

The thing is, with retail, you often don't know about a game until shortly before it is released. With Kickstarter, you get to see it before it is properly developed. That's good and bad - I haven't KS'd this project, but I am following it, and I have already started saving up for the retail version. And I think I am as eager to see it hit the shelves as you!
