Happy Weekly Update everyone!

Grey has let me know he's just over halfway finished applying the edits from our proofreader, so he's making good progress.  As usual, I'll keep everyone informed as best I can.

I also had a few people ask about the story of BREAK!!'s development - while my video creating skills still require a lot to be desired, I did do something to try and tell that story, at least from my end!

Happy Weekly Update everyone! It's a short one this time.

"Logistics" was the name of the game last week - a bunch of little things that needed to be sorted out. It looks like those are mostly resolved so we've been pressing on. Grey is a little over a quarter of the way through applying the edits I mentioned in the last update. It's a very fiddly process involving a lot of moving parts, but progress is steady.

As mentioned in a few other spots, I've been working more on some blog posts to publish once the preview is out. This is a series tentatively titled Option Menu, and each one is about customizing and tweaking a different aspect of BREAK!! to your needs and preferences. These also serve as a means for me to discuss the design philosophy behind said facets, so they should make for good reads even if you plan on using the game as is. I hope they end up being entertaining and useful for folks.

Anyway, that's it for now. See you next week!

Hello everyone!

A few, important updates for you this week.

We're currently getting the exact physical dimensions on the books (we are going for some nicer paper quality, huzzah!) to our fulfillment partner and waiting for kickstarter to confirm/collect from everyone so we can get the finalized list of backers to them as well. 

We hope to have this all done as soon as we can as this will allow them to work out the most economical means of shipping and help us move onto the next steps of fulfillment. It will also ensure accuracy on the shipping costs featured on the backer survey sent out to all of you, where you'll be able to update and finalize your pledge.

Also, as a bit of a head's up: we are able to include some VATs and other taxes as part of what we charge, but we have been told certain countries might end up charging separately. Just something to be aware of when they all go through.

As for the PDF itself, we've combed through and approved the proposed edits. The arduous task of applying said changes (1500 in all!) to the PDF is now underway. Even though most are relatively small there are a lot more than we thought, so everyone please send your energy to Grey as he once again weaves his layout magic. For my part, I'll keep letting everyone know any major news.

Thanks again to all of you and see you next update!

Hey everyone,

Just in case you'd not seen or heard, pre-orders are up for those who missed the kickstarter proper. If you know anyone whose interested, please share it with them!

As for us, our proofreader finished going over the book and we are going through reviewing and applying those edits now. Between this and working through the logistics of fulfillment we are pretty busy and may be a little quieter than usual for a bit, but we'll keep everyone updated.

Kickstarter completion and the future

First of all, thank you all so much. Grey and I are absolutely floored by the results of our crowdfunding. 

BREAK!! won't just happen, it's going to flourish in the hands of so many dedicated people and we couldn't be more grateful for it.

Once we take an afternoon or so to dust ourselves off, we're going to get right into things. The proofreading of the book is already underway, and once that's done we'll get straight to applying the edits. We are hoping to try and complete this in a couple of weeks or so, but we'll keep you all posted.

After that, backers will receive the preview PDF and after a feedback period we'll complete and deliver the finalized one.  Naturally from there it'll be a matter of printing and sending the full physical copies. In addition, stay tuned for word on the pledge manager.

We plan on updating the Kickstarter weekly to keep everyone posted. Keep an eye out on devblog as well, especially once the rules are available. Updates, guidelines on customization, and other tidbits and features will be posted there.

Once again, thank you all for your support. We can't wait for you to start your adventures in Outer World!
