Nope. We've been told to expect a shipping update by the end of January. I suspect we're looking at a Q2 delivery to backers.

The alien minis are likely a summer delivery.

Unfortunately not. We have a big update coming regarding shipping that will be posted publicly on the Kickstarter this coming week.

It's now the end of April, and we don't have a firm timeline yet for delivery of the game. Per the most recent KS update, the box insert required a redesign, and the manufacturer is taking longer than expected to get that done and print the game.

My guess is we're looking at a July delivery to backers. Anyone else have a guess?

Lol, checking in to add a more recent entry: it looks like maybe Jan 2019 or so is a more likely target? Maybe later in Q1 2019?

The latest update now put delivery to backers by the end of January or possibly into February 2019. Shipping in winter is always subject to weather delays, so my money is on February.

While this has been one of my most delayed KS games, it's also been the one with the most civil KS comments, due to the outstanding updates from the publisher. He has been really good about keeping backers updated with full transparency.

Thanks a ton for the nice words.

The game is shipping on Monday Dec 10th. It's been a long road, but we are happy with the quality of the final product and so is Hidden Path.

Now to find out how the community likes the game. This is always the hard part as a creator.

That's shipping from China though, and it could easily be 6 weeks before local deliveries start. I'm certainly looking forward to it, though. Hopefully the wait will have been worth it!

If the games did ship out on December 10, they should be docking in the U.S. very soon. Hopefully we'll get an update soon.

Anthony just posted on KS that the games never shipped out of China due to a documentation error. The proper documentation has now been provided and the games should ship out shortly.

This adds another month delay to the project. I must keep telling myself: "Patience is a virtue."

Yea I was really really frustrated by this

I am busy bugging them daily right now with basically "has it shipped yet". As soon as it does, I will be doing another Kickstarter update to explain in more detail what happened.

It looks like the U.S. boat is due in Seattle on 2/9. Then customs, transport to the fulfillment center, and final shipping to backers. Looks like this will be an end of February (i.e. birthday) present to me!

Birthday for me as well

That being said, Gamerati is cautioning that games may not arrive at backers till early March due to customs and the massive snow storms we are getting this weekend.

Seattle area is a weird place. We get 3 - 4 inches of snow and it basically shuts down the entire area for 3 to 5 days because of all the hills.

Awesome!

Sounds like our roughly 60 copies to Australia, New Zealand, and surrounding areas should all be delivered now, with the exception of any signed copies.

Up next is US and Canada with EU and Rest of World starting delivery around March 5th.

Really sorry, but it sounds like no one has yet. The payment to Gamerati for covering shipping expenses is still showing as "pending" likely due to it being over $10,000 USD so they have not yet released the games to UPS. I got the bill and immediately ordered the payment be processed a week ago.

This is quite frustrating and I am trying to work with them to just get the games out the door already as the money is there and there is nothing I can do about expediting legally required banking reviews of large transactions.

Sometimes feels like I just cannot win.

Thank you for your honesty and transparency. At least the enthusiasm and impatience of us rabid backers should be a positive sign that your game is eagerly anticipated!
