Ok people you’ve been incredibly patient for the last month or so while my work life has been taking up project time, and I appreciate that. Here’s a complete update for you.
Today, all copies of Octo: Games Of Spring that were headed to domestic addresses were shipped, with one or two exceptions (inter-office copies, author copies, and one or two missing addresses.) International copies will go in the mail tomorrow. This all includes Founder’s Editions or copies that were a reward for the Ivanna and the Wolf IndieGoGo.
If you dropped me a couple bucks for shipping, your copy will also include a piece of something called #UnderThisMountain, which I’m not going to tell you about. But I think it’s going to turn out pretty cool.
As of today, I have in the vicinity of 150 copies of Octo: Games Of Spring remaining. So, if you’ve been waiting to see how all this turns out, you don’t need to wait anymore.
I’m showing we’ve raised about 26% of the funds we had intended to, which fits with having about 75% of the printed issues on hand.
I didn’t hit anywhere near my targeted shipping dates (any of them) but most of you should have your copies by May Day, which seems fitting. And while I haven’t been so good with the updates here, if you’ve been following me on twitter, I’ve posted a few teaser pics.

So: What now?
I still owe a couple people money, and I still need to ship a couple things. Once I’ve dropped international orders in the mail, I’m going to push this issue a bit while work continues to ear my head, which should relax soon. I’m hoping to publish another update in a week or so with some more details on what happens next.
I think that’s all the news there is to print, but if you have questions, comments, etc, feel free to hit me up in the comments section.
