I made a "let's play" with commentary about the game design. development, etc.

In case you're interested!

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKnuSwFRGIM[/youtube]

I didn't get too far, apparently I'm not very good doing two things at the same time, but I like that it feels more natural if I record the commentary as I play.

Also a quick update re: physical release; Poly Play sent me a draft of the 3" disc inlay and it is lovely! Hopefully it'll be ready soon.

Thanks Juan! One thing I noted - the 3.5" option on the page says 'Golden Tail' instead of Magica....

Thanks.I've just made my magica order (including posters), so if they ship the posters in the same way it would be great.

Great!

I can't speak for Sebastian, but he's very professional and it sounds weird to me he didn't answer to you so I would say something happened and he didn't read the mail.

I'm happy to help; I sent him a mail, hopefully this will be sorted ASAP!

@kawickboy it's probably a mess-up in the package, because my order of Golden Tail included the poster, and I received both in the same package, flawlessly.

Any idea when it's shipping? I also wanna get Golden Tail, but it'd be silly for them to be sent separately...

Poly play said Jan 30th, so I guess it'll start shipping shortly after that day.

I ordered both at the same time a week or two ago, I think they're going to send them together.

I'm actually just writing a review of Magica at the moment for issue 2 of my fanzine. It's written in rhyming couplets which is sort of fun. Don't want to spoil it, but here's the start:

 Oh little Sorceress, small and sweet,
 How many times must I repeat?
 When you leave your lab each day,
 Lock the door, keep thieves away!


 But little Sorceress didn’t listen,
 And as she left, the thieves eyes glistened,
 When she returned the following morn,
 To her surprise, her spells were gorn!

Sebastian reported on Twitter that the shrink wrap machine burned, so the shipments would delay a bit.

I'll ask him to communicate a bit better, even with an ETA if possible.

If you also bought Golden Tail, that may be the one that is on the post. Not sure, sorry!

Yup, I did buy Golden Tail and that's why my order was delayed, but it was sent 18 days ago today nonetheless. Hope it's not lost - didn't get a tracking number...
