(Most recent first) UPDATE 21 Digital Bestiaries sent out Dec 11, 2014 Hey everyone! The Windows (exe) Digital Bestiaries have gone out to backers today, check the email address you backed with for a link! We're having a few issues with our Mac Developer's account/configuration but we're doing our best to get it sorted out. For now we're sending out the Windows .exe of the Bestiary to backers who pledged for it, and we hope to get the Mac version out shortly after! Posters have been printed and are ready for shipping. Many thanks to the brilliant Oliver Sin for the design and handling most of the fulfilment. Head on over to his twitter and show him some love if you like the design. We'll let you know when the mac version is ready, and apologies if we haven't gotten around to answering your emails/messages/comments. We're catching up now! Many thanks, - Lou UPDATE 20 Bestiary update Nov 5, 2014 Hey everyone, As you've probably noticed the Bestiaries haven't gone out as promised. We'd like to apologise for this, there's no credible excuse: it really just comes down to poor time management on our part. We've been so carried away working on other aspects of the game that we didn't put enough time aside for this one, but we've learned our lesson. In the future we'll plan more cautiously and for now, continue to working overtime until it's done! We'll update you when it's ready to be delivered. We're hoping it will be this evening. If we haven't responded to your help requests on the survey, we'll be getting around to them now. Thanks for your patience, and sorry to let you down. Hopefully it won't happen again. - Inglenook UPDATE 19 Surveys are Go Oct 31, 2014 Hey everyone, The surveys have launched. We'll need you to complete them by December 1st, but they should only take a few minutes of your time. If you have any problems or spot an error with your order don't hesitate to get in touch. You can message us over Kickstarter or shoot us an email at: Witchmarsh@gmail.com and we'll get back to you as quickly as we can. Also, you can keep in touch with us on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. Don't be a stranger! So what's next? First up is the Bestiaries, which are going out this weekend. Followed by the Town Council invites, stand by for those! After that we're looking at early 2015 for gold beta testing, and mid 2015 for bronze beta testing. We'll let you know when the dates are confirmed. Glad to have you along with us on this crazy ride, this update marks the first major important milestone on the road to release. THANK YOU! Psst. Matt, Coder on the Multiplayer part of Witchmarsh and Risk of Rain has a new game coming out. Check out the trailer for Wanderlust Adventures and see what you think. It's pretty late over in the UK so we'll be on tomorrow to answer any questions you might have regarding the surveys. Best wishes, - @Polysquid UPDATE 16 Bestiary Progress + Town Council Delay Sep 22, 2014 Hey everyone, October's almost upon us, where does the time go? We've got a small update for you regarding the Digital Bestiary, which is due for delivery later this month. So far progress has been good and we're still hoping to make the deadline by the 30th, but we've made a couple of changes which could see it pushed back slightly. Monsters are now animated dynamically. Giant toads hop around their illustrated frames, skeletons scuttle about their crypts (see above image); this has added a bit of coding time to the process and has delayed us by about a week. Secondly, we've decided to write descriptive text for some of the enemies. Without them the book felt a bit clinical, like a booklet of statistics. This has also added some time to the building of the bestiary. We believe these changes are worth the wait, and we're still hoping to get it out to backers by the end of the month. If they happen to be a bit late though, we just wanted to let you know why. This has also delayed the surveys and with them, invites to the town council forums. But have no fear council backers, you'll be colluding in the shadows soon enough. All the best, Inglenook End of backer-only updates All other Kickstarter updates should be visible to everyone.
