Latest Updates from Our Project:

Shipping is about to start!
about 2 months ago – Tue, Mar 29, 2022 at 04:20:11 AM

Hi everyone,

it's been a while, but today we have good news for you. Production is almost finished and we're about to start shipping.

You should have received a notification from BackerKit that your address will be locked within 48 hours. After the addresses are locked, we will immediately start shipping. Apart from a few exceptions we expect all packages to be on their way by the end of this week.

From our latest experience most intercontinental shipments (shipping from Germany) take the usual 10-20 days. However, exceptions may apply due to limited air-traffic and Deutsche Post informs their customers that runtimes can be up to 90 days in some cases.

Please note that there will be no tracking code, unless you purchased this service as an AddOn in the Pledge Manager.

As usual, if there's any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment under this update or on the project page. For more private matters you can always be in touch via PM.

Best regards,

Martin & Mario

Locking Pledges ahead of time
4 months ago – Sat, Feb 05, 2022 at 10:02:00 AM

Hi everyone,

it's a little sooner than we had planned, but while routinely checking BackerKit we noticed, that everyone apart from some €1 Supporters have already finished their survey.

So we have decided to lock the surveys at hand within 48 hours - 3 days ahead of schedule. 

That's a first for us in any of our campaigns, by the way. Pretty awesome group of Backers we got here!

With Survey being locked, you won't be able to purchase any more addons or change anything about your pledge. You will, however, still be able to change your address, so no worries if you plan on moving anytime soon. Address changes will be possible until only a few days before we start shipping. You'll be notified a few days ahead of time.

That's it for today, we might be posting a little production update at some point or you'll hear from us as soon as we've got a shipping date. As always, if there's any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment here or on the project page, we do our best to answer as quick and in detail as possible.

Best regards,

Martin & Mario

Pledge Manager Open - Shipping schedule
4 months ago – Mon, Jan 17, 2022 at 12:05:35 AM

Hi everyone,

it's been a little longer than anticipated, but with winter holidays on our side as well as BackerKit, there have been a couple more days of nothing happening than we expected.

Now with this out of the way, the first surveys have just been sent, the rest will follow over the course of the day.

Please also check your Spam inbox in case you shouldn't receive your E-Mail from BackerKit over the course of the next 24 hours, especially if this is your first time with BackerKit.

With our unique situation of having Backers of our previous Dodoresque project in this campaign, we have decided to lock surveys and therefore potentially ship rewards in multiple waves.

For wave 1 we'll be locking surveys in 3 weeks on February 7th following our regular project schedule. You will receive an 48 hour warning before this happens. If you have finished your survey until then, you'll be among the first to receive your rewards. If you should be needing a little more time with your survey, that's no problem, the Pledge Manager will remain open afterwards

The Pledge Manager itself is pretty straight forward, if there's any remaining questions after the following introduction, please be in touch with us.

On the landing page you will see your pledge level and are asked to select your shipping location.

After that you will be asked for the game version you would like to receive. Cherry Blossom (pink cover) is the featured game of this Kickstarter and was the second game. Jungle Fever (green cover) was featured in the first campaign. There is also the option to upgrade your pledge my selecting both games.

After selecting games you will be asked to pick your game language. All of our games are available in English and German.

Last but not least you will also have a chance to add Maurice (blue) or Maureen (purple) collectible figurines to your pledge. Those have been around since the games themselves launched back in 2018 and make for a great addition to your gaming table.

Even though this should be quite obvious, we would like to point out that those figurines are collectibles and have nothing to do with the game itself - the "Game Miniatures" featured in this campaign are quite different and are automatically included in every pledge with no extra cost!

On the next page you have the chance to sign up to our newsletter, a great source of information on upcoming projects.

The next page leads you into the addon section. In here you can purchase additional games and figurines. There's also the option to have your games signed by the authors.

Most importantly you also have the option to add tracking to your package. For "low cost" items like Dodoresque we usually go with the cheapest shipping option, which is a service named "Warenpost" by Deutsche Post. Those packages can take a while and are neither tracked or insured. If you would like to add tracking to your package, you can do so by selecting "Add Tracking!" as an Addon.

After the Addon section you will be asked for your shipping address. No worries if you plan on moving anytime soon, the shipping address can still be changed, even after the survey itself is locked. You will be notified 48 hours before the shipping address is locked.

The last part of the Pledge Manager will be the confirmation page, also asking for your payment details to charge shipping as well as potential addon cost. Since this year BackerKit has also added PayPal as a payment option.

And that's it for today. As usual, if there's any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment or message us directly, we're always happy to help.

Best regards,

Martin & Mario

Campaign End - how things go from here
6 months ago – Sat, Dec 11, 2021 at 06:40:41 AM

Hi everyone,

first of all we would like to thank you all for your support throughout this campaign. Ending the project with 51 Backers spending €1.169 is actually more than we would have expected, knowing that December is usually a rather slow month on Kickstarter. 

So how will things go from here? First of all there's always a 14 day period in which Kickstarter finalizes the campaign and collects all funds. As it will already be Christmas then, we don't know yet if we will be launching the Pledge Manager right away or if this will happen in the new year.

As we have a couple of Backers from our previous campaign ("Jungle Fever") onboard, we'll have to see how long we will keep the Pledge Manager open. Understandably they would like to take a look at the first game before backing for a second, so we would like to give them enough time to do so, while currently not everyone in the campaign has received their rewards.

We'll be posting another update as soon as the Pledge Manager goes live. If there's any questions or concerns in the meantime, feel free to post a comment here or on the project page, we're happy to answer you there and give other Backers the chance to read along, who may have a similar question. Of course you can also reach us via Direct Message for more private matters.

Best regards,

Martin & Mario
