Burger Up update: production progress May 16, 2016 14:09 by David Scott
It's been a few weeks since we posted a Burger Up update to non-Kickstarter backers, apologies for the delay folks! Rest assured, there's been plenty happening on the burger-flipping front. Here's a bit of a snapshot.
The first question on everyone's lips is, of course, "when will the game start to ship?" And the good news is, it's getting very close now. We're full swing into mass production and expect this to complete by the end of May, so games will be on their way within weeks. Apologies that this is slightly later than our originally anticipated April timeline, but we think the tweaks we've made on the final product and its packaging will make the wait worth it.
We got our hands on some press proofs at the end of April, and as those of you who follow us on social media would know, we were very excited. The box feels nice and substantial; the finish is great and the card stock feels solid and just a little bit premium :). You can watch an unboxing Allen and Alistair did of the press proofs here, otherwise here's a quick sample of what the final package will look like.
We've passed these press proofs along to a few reviewers to get their thoughts, so you may see a few early reviews in the coming weeks - hopefully it just whets your appetite that little bit more!
Finally, the coaster samples for inclusion in the Kickstarter version of the game arrived just this week and after a bit of discussion in the office, we're going with a 'raw' edge finish, as opposed to a very glossy one. See below.
That's it for now. We're excited that we're *this close* to having the final game done and dusted and being played on tables (and in burger shops) across the world!
