Dann lives in an area affected by the hurricanes, so he had been evacuated for a week and apparently only just got back home. He's working on things and will post an update any day hopefully (check the comment section on the kickstarter).
Apparently Dann Kriss is waiting to hear back from Whatz Games, the manufacturer ... yet again. As far as I can tell, they are the reason this game was delayed to August, then other things -- like Hurricane Harvey -- began interfering.
And his health issues of course meant he couldn't pressure Whatz as much a he'd have liked. Not that you can pressure much form a continent away. Basically though he planned everything out nicely for the kickstarter and then everything that could go wrong did.
