Happy Holidays and Progress
27 days ago – Tue, Dec 24, 2019 at 02:17:42 AM

Hey Paleontologists!

Progress on Fossilis

While we are moving much slower during the holidays, we want you to know we are always moving forward. At the beginning of January we'll have all of our ducks in a row to begin translation into Spanish. While that is happening, we'll also be submitting our files for the sample. Once we receive the sample, we will tweak whatever needs tweaking, and then the manufacturing process will begin. We'll be in touch during January to let you know how things have progressed. 

Happy Holidays

There are so many wonderful holidays to celebrate this time of year. Last night was the first night of Chanukah and tomorrow is Christmas Eve. What could be better?

Until next time Paleontologists ...

BackerKit Surveys and Charging Cards For Shipping
about 1 month ago – Tue, Dec 17, 2019 at 02:08:57 AM

Hey Paleontologists!

We are chugging along here with completing the files for Fossilis. As we mentioned in a previous update, the rules have been completed and the art has been completed. We are working on submitting files so that we can get a sample ASAP. Our last bit of work is on the print file for the board. We created it to fit a vacuform board. But we have since decided that we wanted it to be thicker and sturdier. So, we're working on tweaking it a bit so that it can be injection-moulded.

BackerKit Surveys

You've done a great job at completing them. Some of you have yet to do so. We can't know how many games to order until your survey is complete. If you could take the time out of your day to fill your survey out, we will keep on schedule.

Charging Credit Cards

Paleontologists, today is the day that is scheduled for charging your credit cards. We usually send out a 24 hour notice so that you can get your banks to allow charges to your card. So, this is your 24 hour warning. Tomorrow at this time we'll be charging you for shipping.

Final Thoughts ...

We won't have much for you before the holidays, so for now, we're going to wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday. May all your holiday wishes come true.

We have some good news for you. Many of you have been asking for our other games during this campaign. But we haven't been able to offer them to you because of shipping constraints. We still have to charge you shipping, but as of right now until December 5th, our web store will be 20% off for Fossilis Backers only.

Enter the code fossilisbacker at checkout to receive 20% off your entire purchase. Not only is this coupon exclusive to you as a backer, but you'll get a better discount than the one we are advertising on Facebook (15% off).

BackerKit Surveys and Game Development Complete
about 2 months ago – Fri, Nov 22, 2019 at 02:40:12 AM

Hey Paleontologists,

Well, the time has finally come. Your surveys will be sent out tonight EST. BackerKit is just having a final look over it before I can send it to you. It took us longer than we thought it would to prepare because of how many add-ons we are offering. REMINDER: When you are filling out the survey please don't forget to let us know if you want the Spanish version or the English version. Thank you all so much for your patience.

Game Development

I am happy to report that after one final KTBG/David Diaz meeting today, development of the game is complete. The game plays so smoothly. The scoring levels are now right where we want them and feel very competitive whether you are going for perfections, sets, or a mix of both. We have played and finalized all of the expansions (which are awesome), and we decided on final tallies of components. The only things we have left to complete at this point are David Turczi's Solo Mode and the [near] final art and graphic design. I hear that the Solo Mode is nearly complete. They are just putting some final touches on it. We'll keep you informed as more information comes to us. The art and graphic design should be finished very soon.

Game Development, BackerKit, and the Dino Winner
2 months ago – Fri, Nov 15, 2019 at 11:01:14 PM

Hey Paleontologests,

Well, it's been an eventful week for Fossilis! We've been discussing balancing the scoring so that the different paths to victory have similar scoring. We've been working on some of the art that was not yet complete while the campaign was running. And we've also been in contact with so many of you to thank you for being here. This campaign was an absolute pleasure to run. We are still so thankful to each and every one of you for your support.

BackerKit Surveys

By the end of next week you will have all received your BackerKit surveys. The process for distribution is as follows: once the surveys are finalized on my end I will get approval from BackerKit. Once I do, they will send out a smoke test. That means that 5% of backers will get their surveys immediately. Once most of those backers have proven that there are no issues with the surveys, the rest of the surveys will be sent out. 

The survey itself will be straightforward. It will ask you some questions, for your address, your credit card information for paying for shipping, as well as how many games you want for your pledge. Kickstarter only collects your money. BackerKit allows us to allocate that money to a product. There will be a 2 week period to complete your surveys, after which they will be locked. Don't worry if you are moving between now and August 2020. We'll only close addresses 3 or 4 weeks before your games get to you.

The Moment You've All Been Waiting For

The winner is Microraptor!!

We've already had Apolline hard at work. Hopefully we'll have an image for you by the next update.
