Project Update: We're Still Here! And we owe you an update...
We're so sorry it's taking so long for us to give you a proper update on this project. Thank you for being so patient with us. And to those that sent us emails, messages, comments, etc... Thank you!
The reality is that we've been operating with reduced staff and bandwidth for all of 2023. XYZ Game Labs' first and top priority is fulfilling our obligations to you, our backers (as well as our backers and pre-order customers on other projects).
Due to that, we've been focusing all our efforts on the tasks most critical to delivering these projects. Rest assured, we are actively working on all things pre-production, editing, proofing, and producing Magic Socks, and it's accompanying mini-expansions, theme packs, and add-ons.
To recap for clarity that list includes:
- ArchRavels: Magic Socks (and the Enchanted Theme Pack)
- All 3 Standalone Theme Packs (Cryptids, Cuddles, & Dinos)
- Both Mini-Expansions (Award Season & RIVALS!)
- Add-On game components (Bowl 2-Packs, Yarn Bazaar Playmat, & 3D Yarn Balls)
And please don't hold back on your suggestions!
Here are some of our most recently completed pieces of art for the RIVALS min-expansion:
As well as some recent SPECIAL REQUEST art for Award Season & RIVALS that's been completed:
There are also 20 or so other smaller Art Pieces (Icons, Tags, Borders, Etc) that have been completed during this time and now need to be assembled into individual Project, Awards, Events, Tangled, and Snagged Cards.
[ And Yes, for those paying attention there are at least 3 new card types in that list that you haven't seen yet :-) ]
We will be continuing to focus on the last steps needed to get this game to print. Things should start getting completed faster, so there will be more things to share with you all. Our initial goal will be to share these things with you starting on a monthly basis, so you can expect another update from us in about 4 weeks.
Next Up, Pledge Manager:
One of the next big milestones will be the launching of the pledge manager. This is one of those items that our limited bandwidth has certainly impacted. There are a few details to work out, mostly with add-ons, before we can launch. Stay tuned and we should have details on how to access the pledge manager and what you need to do next.
Thank you, everyone, for your patience as we navigate one of the most work-heavy portions of a crowdfunding campaign. This project, and this community, mean a lot to us. We're focused on making sure it's delivered in the best possible form it can be.
Take care and Stay Crafty,
Project Update: THANK YOU!
From all of us here at XYZ Game Labs: Thank You!
ArchRavels is very special to us and the support that Magic Socks got, really showed us how much y'all love AR too!
We're super excited to bring these new expansions, theme packs, and deluxe components to your collection and your table.
THE CUDDLEDOME FINAL CONTINUES!
We've seen a few questions pop up regarding WHEN you'll be able to purchase the stuffy that wins and while we don't have an exact date yet we are planning to have this added to the Pledge Manager before we get to our fulfillment stage.
Speaking of the Pledge Manager!

What Happens Next?
Just a reminder that we are expecting to deliver this campaign in Q2 of 2023 and won't be charging shipping until about 30 days before fulfillment begins.
Just wondering if we might get another update anytime soon since it has now been 6 months since the last one. I know the company is working with a smaller crew and it's only been a year but it would be nice to get quarterly updates on how everything is panning out (even if there isn't much to show us). If anyone has any info the rest of us don't, please feel free to comment on this. Thanks!!!
It's been 3 months since any update has happened. It would be nice to be kept up to date, even if there is nothing significant to report at the very least it appeases the worry that you have forgotten all about the project. Monthly updates are standard with just about every other project I have backed on both this platform and others, maybe that is something you strive to do also. Thanks
Well friends. I didn't realize this when I backed this campaign last year but this company is in over their heads with another yet fulfilled Kickstarter that was suppose to fulfill LAST September (2022) the campaign has pretty much been ghosted as well (minus a few obligatory delay posts) what a joke. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/xyzgamelabs/titania-ascending/description
