Pledge Manager, Demo Copy, and Manufacturing News
19 days ago – Tue, Sep 06, 2022 at 10:27:40 PM

Hello Elementilists!

We have reached a very exciting milestone in the campaign, and all of us at Darkwood Games are excited to share this month’s update with you! However, first and foremost, we want to address some BackerKit Pledge Manager comments and questions we’ve received.


Pledge Manager

We officially locked all orders and pre-orders for Elementile with BackerKit this past weekend. A small percentage of backers’ orders were unable to lock, and BackerKit sent an automated email to those individuals saying some survey questions need to be completed prior to finalizing your order. We’ve been reviewing these cases as no information appears to be missing from these orders, and the inability to lock the orders appears to be a technical glitch. We are actively working with BackerKit to get some answers about the error and will update you as soon as we have more insight. Please note that there have been no changes made to your pledge, add-ons, and/or shipping information and you will still be receiving your game and whatever other items you may have ordered. In the meantime, we are delaying charging anyone’s cards for the funds collected through BackerKit until after this issue is resolved.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at info@darkwoodgames.com.


Demo Copies

As many of you saw in our last mini mid-August update, we recently received our demo copies of the Premium edition of Elementile from our manufacturer! We have to admit, it is very special seeing the final product in real life after countless hours of hard work and with all of the finalized art! That said, there were a couple of minor details that did not meet the team’s quality expectations, which will be resolved with the manufacture over the next 1-2 weeks before the final green light is given for full scale production.

Elementile Premium Edition

Those of you who saw the pictures in our last update may have noticed something a little extra we decided to include with our game - a black game tray organizer! Including the tray organizer was originally a Kickstarter stretch goal of ours that we didn’t quite hit. However, the team decided as a Thank You for all the support, including a prefabricated card/token/mat organizer would be a valuable addition and great quality of life surprise to all of our backers! In our demo copies we did notice some minor cracking to the organizer, which likely occurred in shipping, and we have already told the manufacturer to use a thicker plastic to avoid this issue in full production.

We were in LOVE with the look of the holographic hero cards included in the Premium editions of the game, and can’t wait to hear all of your thoughts once they’re in your hands soon!

Timeline

Phase 1 (Design and Development) is officially complete!!!

We are still aiming to begin shipping and fulfillment this November in time for the holiday season.


Our next update is scheduled for October 11, 2022, but expect a mid-September update about the Pledge Manager, as mentioned.

See you on the Elemental Plane!


Best,

Amanda, Alex, Zach, and Ryan

Quick Update about Demo Copies
about 2 months ago – Wed, Aug 03, 2022 at 02:37:43 AM

Hello Elementalists!

Today is going to be a rather short update for you all. We are still waiting on the demo copies of Elementile to arrive from the manufacturer but hope to have them in hand very soon! Once we’ve reviewed and signed off on the demos, we will be initiating full-scale manufacturing. Estimates from our manufacturer indicate we should still receive the final copies of the game in November, and we will be sure to update you if anything changes that timeline. Otherwise, we have a couple of quick notes about the enamel pins and the pledge manager.

Enamel Pins

We’ve received the final backings and supplies for the enamel pins, so we’re now well underway with packing these pieces! We decided to use background art that is reminiscent of the hero cards the pins were inspired by and really love how they turned out.

Pledge Manager

The pledge manager will be closing and locking in your orders on August 31st. For those of you that have not completed your BackerKit surveys, please do so asap or before the end of the month. If you do not complete this step, we will not be able to ship your rewards to you. No survey = no game. If you have any questions about the pledge manager or issues completing your survey, please reach out to us either at https://elementile-ccg.backerkit.com/faq#contact-us or at info@darkwoodgames.com.

We will send out reminders to complete your survey a week before the pledge manager closes on August 24th and the day before the pledge manager closes on August 30th.
