Wave 3 Progress Update 5
4 months ago – Thu, May 09, 2019 at 01:57:14 AM

Hi Unkindled,

Before we jump into the progress with Wave 3 and Wave 4, we want to quickly reiterate the importance of making sure your address is up to date. We’ve seen a few comments from backers whom have been unable to update their address due to issues with BackerKit; if this is the case please submit an enquiry request by clicking the button at the bottom of this page.

All addresses must have been resubmitted by Wednesday, June 5th. Failure to do so will result in backers not receiving their rewards. 

Update on Wave 3

In an earlier Wave 3 Progress Update we mentioned we were awaiting the final samples for Wave 3 contents, the main hold up with these being Chinese New Year which has now been and gone. We were expecting to have these final samples shortly after Chinese New Year finished but are yet to receive them from our manufacturing partner. We’ve been assured these samples are on their way and that we should expect to receive them within the next few weeks. Once they arrive we’ll be sure to put up an update featuring photos of them!

Update on Wave 4

All of the artwork and graphic assets for the Last Giant have now been sent over to our manufacturing partner. They’ve then taken the assets to ensure everything is setup up correctly to match the machinery, which will print the various paper and card components, and make any adjustments required.

We’ve received the assets back from our manufacturing partner with the adjustments they were required to make and SFG have now approved these amendments.

The artwork and graphic assets for Manus and The Executioners Chariot are currently still with Bandai Namco for approval, once approved they’ll be sent over to our manufacturing partner just as the files for the Last Giant have been.

Wave 3 Progress Update 4
5 months ago – Thu, Apr 25, 2019 at 01:22:03 AM

Hi Unkindled,

Thank you to everyone that has resubmitted their address, we’re aware there was an issue with BackerKit where it had locked out the option to edit address which has now been amended. If you’d run into this issue you should be able to edit your address now. If you have any issues with updating your address please submit an enquiry request by clicking the button at the bottom of this page.

All addresses must have been resubmitted by Wednesday June 5th. Failure to do so will result in backers not receiving their rewards.

Update on Wave 3

Since our last breakdown of where each part of the project was at we’ve been focusing our updates on address resubmissions, but that doesn’t mean our project managers stopped pushing things forward to get your content out to you toward the tail end of the year.

All the artwork for Wave 3 content is now with our manufacturing partner, so we’re just awaiting the final samples to be completed and sent over to SFG HQ for quality assurance checks. We don’t currently have an eta on when those samples are expected to arrive, but once they do, we’ll be sure to let you know and provide some images of what it all looks like!

While we’re awaiting these samples, work continues collecting and collating all the assets for the Wave 4 content, to get those all to the same point as the Wave 3 content so it’s ready for when our production partners need it.

Address Resubmission Information & Wave 3 Progress Update 3
6 months ago – Thu, Mar 14, 2019 at 12:55:37 AM

Hi Unkindled,

Before we jump into the progress on the Wave 3 & 4 content, we’re going to cover what is going to be happening regarding updating addresses.

To start, we want to make it clear that backers don’t need to make any changes to their addresses just yet. We’ve been working with BackerKit to set the system up ready for all the address submissions we’ll be requesting from our backers.

All backers will be required to resubmit their addresses. The reason for this is a simple one, during the fulfilment of Wave 2 there was a higher than expected volume of returns that came back to SFG HQ, the vast majority of which were due to incorrect addresses. With Wave 3 being sent out to all backers, rather than just those which ordered add-on content we need to ensure that all the shipping information we have is as accurate as it can be, as early as possible.

We’re aware that between now and when fulfilment begins backers may well have relocated, and there will be plenty of opportunity to change addresses as we move closer to fulfilment.

Once BackerKit have finished their work on the system side an email will be sent out to all backers requesting them to resubmit their address. We’ll also put out a Kickstarter update reminding backers that the address submission is required, and the date it is required by. We anticipate starting this process by the end of this month, so keep your eye out for updates here and on your inboxes.

Hopefully that clarifies the process behind the updating of addresses, let’s move on to the progress with the stretch goal content. We had some packages arrive at SFG HQ this morning, the contents of which were revised white box samples. One of which included the Phantoms expansion miniatures we’d been waiting for, great news!
