Over 400 games shipped!

October 5th Update

Over 400 of you should have your product at this point.  Here are some exceptions:

  • High tiers - Those of you waiting for a CE or DE box - see below.
  • International - Most international orders have been sent. If you are in the Drawing Live or Drawing Dead tiers and don't have your orders, you should shoot me a message. If you are in a high or more oddball tier, it might not have been sent yet, but will be going out over the next few business days.
  • Missing Promos - Working on that, but it'll probably take a back seat to everyone else getting their stuff. I hope that's okay! I want to get people that haven't received anything something first before circling back for errors.
  • Shipping issues - A few of you had some shipping issues, destroyed packages, etc... Trust that I'm working as hard as I can to get everyone their stuff. I will be trying to prioritize issues where the affected parties haven't received a game at all.

Collector's Edition

With the laser running mostly smoothly I can actually make these!

Making one as I write this!

The boxes had been constructed and were waiting for the laser parts to be completed so I'll be working on those as quickly as I can and sending them out as they're completed each day. Over the next week or two, everyone waiting on these should have them.

Hopefully, nothing else goes wrong between now and the time they are actually all done. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times. You guys are awesome! A lot of effort was put into this, so I hope you all enjoy it.

Deluxe Edition 

So this one has been even worse. The first factory I worked with raised the minimum order they'd accept to 500, which put it out of the range of something I could consider. The second factory after sending samples, now raised the price of the box to much more than we had agreed upon and want a minimum order of 100 pieces, making it far too expensive.

On top of that, the box that I ordered as a sample during the campaign has not held up very well at all. The edges are all worn away and you can see chipboard underneath it.

With all that in mind, I decided to make them myself. So I made a couple of attempts at replicating the box and, I think, have had good results. I think it's nicer than the factory ones, but I'm biased. I usually go for hand made stuff over factory made stuff either way, but things I make myself are obviously going to appeal to me. 

Since it's hand made it isn't as "clean" looking. Meaning that it's not quite as precise to the micrometer. That probably sounds bad, but I assure you, it's really nice. And being hand made lets me give it a little more flair.

Here's the first attempt

Deluxe 2.0

I was able to use some higher quality materials and some cool hardware to help it hold up over time better and be more strudy and last longer.

I think you'll like it, but if you aren't happy with it for whatever reason, let me know and I'll make sure we make it right.

I'm also offering you all free upgrades to the wood chips if you want them. If you want to upgrade your pledge, send me a pm to let me know asap.

That's it for today.

Thanks for staying positive!

Your rewards will be there soon!
