VM Pledge Manager

We decided to create and implement our own Pledge Manager tool. Why? Given the fact that we plan to run more Kickstarter campaigns in the future, it just made sense. Our goal is always to get our backers the best shipping rate possible so, by cutting out a 3rd party pledge manager, we cut out their processing fee... which is normally added to the shipping cost.

That said, this is the first project that will use our pledge manager, so please, if you have any issues, or even ideas on how to enhance the experience, send us a private message or post your comments in this thread. We'd appreciate it!

If for any reason your pledge doesn't look as it should, or the shipping can not be calculated, please do NOT complete the pledge manager and simply notify us to address any issues.

For backers who added extra funds using our Webshop, you should see those funds on your Pledge Manager screen. If you added add-ons from our Webshop and you do not see them in our pledge manager, do not complete the process and notify us to resolve the situation.

You should start receiving invitations tomorrow (Friday, September 29th). The email will include a URL, which when you click will send you inside our Pledge Manager. Everything runs in our "Hive Portal", so if you already have an account with us and your email is the same as the one you use in Kickstarter, then the pledge will be added to your current account. If you do not have an account a new one will be automatically created for you.

In our pledge manager you will be able to select your add-ons and make adjustments.

If you didn't pledge through Kickstarter and you late-pledged through our Webshop, you will not receive an invitation since you already paid for shipping and we have everything we need to deliver you the games. This pledge manager is only for Kickstarter backers.

Production Update

The mold for the new Boss' miniatures has finally finished. It took a little longer but the result of the end product is the one we wanted. Here are some photos of the new Bosses.

Also, here are some production images of the Legacy Expansion:

And until we have final production photos of the components, here is a graphical representation of the contents of the Legacy Box:

Updated timetable

Our manufacturer has informed us that the entire production for Centauri Saga (due to Chinese Holidays at the beginning of October) will finish by the 25th of October.

This means that:

Unfortunately, we can not ship Covil and Centauri Saga at the same time. Covil will ship earlier on its own. So, backers who have pledged for both games, will receive two separate packages. One with Covil's components, and one for Centauri Saga.
Also, we expect the games to reach the distribution hubs of EU, US and Canada during the last week of November. Our goal is to ship out from the hubs to backers at the end of November. The games should be delivered to most of you during the first 10 days of December. The Asian hub will get the games earlier and, as such, backers should get their games towards the end of November.
Please remember, our current shipping solution does NOT offer tracking for remote locations (outside US, EU, Canada and China). If you would like to get tracking, please contact us to give you options.

Thank you for your patience, input and support!

Wow! Astral maps are awesome!

What about the delays... In Russia we have giant game publisher called "Zvezda" ("Star"). They promised to publish "Andor: The Last Hope" in august, and now, after dozens of questions from the fans, they tell us that it's going to be out only in November. And they are 27 years in business.

So it's a common thing. Vesuvius Media at least try their best to inform us.
