New Update! Attached were pics of assembled mechs, toys, palettes of boxes, and painted cabinets with decals ready for playfields.
"Welcome to 2021! I hope you are well, and fingers crossed for a more productive year than 2020!
Apologies for the slow start to the updates for 2021; it seems I have missed January altogether. As much as I'd like to say it was because I was sitting on a beach kicking back, taking it easy... we have still been busy beavering away working on all the small details (and some large ones) that are needed to start getting games out the door.
Mech assembly has been continuing in earnest, deliveries for small parts (springs, wave washers, specialty bolts) have been rolling in. I've just taken delivery of our shipping boxes, and my order for legs and leg braces is now on the water and on its way to us.
The first batch of playfields are getting wiring looms finalized, ready to start assembling, and then placing into cabinets for final playtesting before making their way into the shipping boxes for transport.
From a timing perspective, it has still been very hard for me to 100% zone in on when games will start rolling out with consistency. I have been concentrating on making sure that all the back end tasks such as cabinet build, mech assembly, wiring loom construction, lighting assemblies, etc, have a head start, so there aren't any bottlenecks once we are moving. However, until those processes kick in, I'm still just working hard to get it all going.
As of today, I am scheduled to get the first three games out before the end of February. I am then anticipating that I will ship three games a week until we work through the current list of orders. Of course, I am pushing hard and hopeful those numbers will improve and will keep you updated."
