    Really tempted to get this since I missed out on Beggar Prince (and still mad at myself for it. )

    Nope, no "mess up."

    I've just never been big on the concept of pre-orders. So, starting with the release of Zaku, we decided to do away with them. Even though we've always consistently met our projected release dates, I felt that putting people through an arduous pre-order process was no longer necessary. The mailing lists are much more convenient, in my opinion, as they allow potential customers to keep informed about our products without having to plunk any money down.

    I think what really got me hating pre-orders was the whole Halo 2 debacle. Though I did not personally pre-order this game, I knew quite a few people who did - and the damn thing was slated for release at least a half-dozen times over the span of around two years. Each new projected release date was eventually cancelled and swapped for the next, which was pretty ridiculous. They had no idea what they were doing. By the time the game finally did release, some of the people I knew didn't even care about it, anymore; the frustration had buried their interest.

    Pre-orders were necessary for Beggar Prince, both to gauge interest in the product and to guard against the potential threat of early piracy. With Legend of Wukong we had upped our copy protection methods but nearly ran over budget on development. While pre-orders certainly weren't necessary for this game, they were helpful.



    Several copies were mailed out to the press on June 22nd, the same day we began taking orders. Shipping of the game to customers began on June 27th, and continues throughout the week.
    I placed my order on 6/22 and received the order confirmation on 6/25. Is it unusual that I have yet to receive it? I don't have the shipping confirmation either.

    Your not alone. I ordered mine 6-23 and got my order confirmation a few days after, but have yet to get my shipping confirmation.

    Brandon has been somewhat active on Sega-16 and said he might contact each person that is still waiting on the game within the next week or so and let them know whats going on.

    I know some people have already got theirs on Sega-16, but it sounds like there are just as many that have not received theirs. Hopefully we will hear something later this week.
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    I also ordered on the 22 while receiving an order confirmation on the 25 but still have yet to receive a shipping confirmation or any word on delays.

    I ordered before the last month as well. I sent an email to check and Brandon replied letting me know he has been running behind on the shipping. I hope to get it soon.

    Just got my copy in the mail today as well. The box, manual and cart look real nice. I may pick up some more games from these guys as they come along.

    DAMN! I got my shipping confirmation on the 25th and Star Odyssey was in my mailbox the 28th! That was quick once it shipped.

    It's been a long wait compared to when I had previously ordered Beggar Prince and Legend of Wukong. It might have taken a bit longer, but in the end it was worth it.

    From what I have played so far this is SFT's best work to date.

    Brandon, I'm not sure what issues were at hand that delayed shipping for so many, but as always, your products speak for themselves, and this says many good things!

    Got my order, and packaging is top notch. Going to have to dedicate some time to this one.

    I placed my order on July 29th. I got an email saying that more were in production because the first batch sold out and there was going to be a delay. Is anyone else in the same boat or know if they are still waiting for the next batch?

    I'm in the same boat. I ordered mine I think in the same week as you.
    Last I heard there was some kind of delay possibly having to do with him giving himself too much on his own plate. I figure it might be a while, but it'll come eventually.*shrugs*

    He will answer an email if you send him one about it.

    Okay. Well at least I know I wasn't just forgotten. But I can be patient. When it finally comes in the mail I guess it will just be a bigger surprise lol.
