Is Far West Finally Within Reach?

From last Thursday's Far West update:
Project Update #80: Fiddly Bits 
Posted by Gareth-Michael Skarka ♥ Like 
Just a quick note to let you know what's up:  At this point, it's crossing "t"s and dotting "i"s, doing final passes on the index, catching any remaining "page XX"s, and making sure that no backer portraits have been left out. 
Beyond that, it's fiddly, boring stuff like double-checking (and adjusting, if necessary) CMYK ink coverage so that we don't have production problems, and setting up the necessaries for secure digital delivery to you, and other production-and-fulfillment stuff which I won't bore you with. 
At this point, I'm hoping to turn this over to you at some point this weekend, but -- given that there are other folks I need to coordinate with on some of this -- it may be Monday or Tuesday at the latest.  (emphasis mine)
If you need anything, drop me a comment here or an email at the usual address.  I'll try to be as prompt as I can in responding.

Today is that "Tuesday" (Monday has exited already, as did the weekend).  Anyone want to make predictions?

Today could truly be "True Tuesday"...


  1. As I have said before, this was my first "go big or go home" Kickstarter. I jumped in for what was then the amazing amount of $75 bucks. I had bought some of Gareth's pdfs before and I had liked what I saw. But now, almost two years later, I doubt I will get all that I was promised and I ask myself what I saw in the game at the time (probably because I was playing Deadlands when I jumped in.)
    Will we see it today? Probably not. Like most of the updates we have been getting, two weeks or so will go by and we will get another "update" telling us why things were late and it will be just around the corner once more.

  2. Nearly at the end of Tuesday. Anyone? Anyone?

    FWIW, I've seen this sort of thing happen all the time around the office. Some people just think over promising and underdelivering is "better" behavior than honestly saying, "Yeah...umm...it's going to be another year or two before this thing is close to done."
