1. Crowd Funding

Our crowd funding campaign has no end date set. We will work as long and hard as it takes to make this project a success. With this in mind, the ship date for the game will fluctuate with the date that we reach our goal.

2. Artwork Finalization (4 to 12 weeks)

Once we reach our goal we will move into the artwork finalization and proofing phase. During this phase we will ensure all community driven content is complete and ready for print and all of the content has been reviewed one last time. This time fluctuation for this phase will be pretty high as we will be working on customizations during the entire campaign as they come in. This may put us ahead of schedule dependent on how quickly we reach our goal. Once we enter this phase we will leave the perk levels open for the first 2 the weeks to allow any last-minute supporters join as well as to allow time reach any stretch goals.

3. Pre-Production (8 to 10 weeks)

We will submit all files to the printer and work with them through a series of printed proofs to ensure the quality of the game.

4. Production (8 to 10 weeks)

Once we approve all materials the printer will begin actual production of the game.

5. Shipping (2 to 6 weeks)

During this phase the games will be shipped from the printed to the shipping fulfilment center. This is the last leg of the process and you can expect to start seeing games in 2 to 4 weeks.
