This isn't really a complaint or a gripe but you know I have thought about some stuff lately and it occurs to me... where is the word on our Physical Goods?  The game itself will release in less than two months.  Will physical copies be shipped for release?  What about all the books, CD's, playing cards, maps, and other collectibles?  We haven't heard one word about any of it.

 

This concerns me slightly because I have backed a number of kickstarter projects.  I backed the Reading Rainbow thing... already got those physical goods.  Heck today I got a messenger tube in the mail and sure enough it was a photo quality glossy movie poster and mouse pad from where I backed Skyshine Games Kickstarter Bedlam.  That thing was only put on kickstarter like 4-5 months ago?

 

Why has my Eternity Mouse pad taken over 2 years?  Just sayin, give us some info on this stuff Obsidian.

I think Brandon said in the comments to update #88 that physical goods would be shipped close to 26th March in an attempt to make backers receive them at about the same time as the game is digitally released (though there might be delays depending on where each backer resides, of course).

Yeah, I don't think its too much to ask for regarding production of and anticipated shipping of physical goods.

 

It's been pretty hit or miss regarding some of these kickstarter projects --Wasteland 2 in particular.

 

I think it would be nice to know when Obsidian/Paradox anticipates on going gold with their physical discs or if the tshirts have already been printed etc.,...

 

Obsidian has already done a nice job for the small scale shipping of certain reward tiers (AMD Loot Bag) which is very much appreciated. But mass production and shipping is a totally different logistical animal.

 

Hopefully the partnership with Paradox works out --but I am optimistic.

Have my Collector items been signed yet? Any video footage or photographic evidence of signers' fatigue would be appreciated!

All I care about is the t-shirt. I like t-shirts.

Ok, the signed stuff is always cool, but ... t-shirt, man, t-shirt.

The labor and expense to package and mail out the shirts separate from the rest of the goods would be cost prohibitive.

 

As a backer, I'd rather they save that money and allocate it for development rather than logistics.

Perhaps that can be made an option for backers? But it might be too late for that anyway.

I know, I went t-shirt overboard with two black Obs and a Pillars. I've waited this long, whenever they get here, that's when I'll be excited. 

 

Also, playing cards?! From now on, only sober kickstartering. The Add-ons button is like crack, though. 

You crazy, I can't wait to hustle some chump and drop a Ace of Eder on em!  (lul seriously I do collect playing cards)

My only disappointment is that there wasn't some sort of plush horse add-on. 

 

I can feel your disappointment.

Or maybe it should just be the Cramping Hand pin.

 

There should be a minifaction in the game known as the Coalition of the Cramped Hand.

Should we not start with some Ipelagos, or at least some Greater Ipelagos, before tackling a named Arch Ipelago? 6_u

It really feels like arrival of the goods is just around the corner. I wonder if there will be tracking for the packages.

 

Also, let's see if this time I can recognize more signatures. I had no idea who each signature belonged to on my other signed games.
