I'm VERY interested in seeing the final product for ToB since we put so much blood, sweat, and tears into it; I'm really hoping that the payoff for everyone's patience will be a book that makes everyone go "WOW---that rocks" :D

And we should get to find out soon, too!

Good news about Bottle City -- both the Limited- and the Standard Editions will be released as book-bound products (instead of being enclosed in a zip-lock bag, for example).

Click here for an update and to see a preview of the front cover.

That sounds good, but I thought the bagged version sounded pretty cool too.  Nice and retro.   8)

Thanks for the update!

I must agree with you Stephen, I also kind of liked the idea of the baggie. I think I will be pleased either way.

I suspect "Living Room" will be bagged given its price. "Bottle City" is supposed to be special.

Does it help any that the books will still be put in plastic protective sleeves?  :O

Howdy fellows,

The pre-order period for the Limited Edition of Bottle City is now ended. The pre-order period for the Standard Edition will start in approximately two weeks.

Both Tower of Blood and The Original Living Room are available for order. Tower of Blood will start shipping about a week after Living Room.

Thanks for your patience and your support! We expect to post a list of Bottle City supporters to the web site in a few days.

I am pretty sure that the final total was 51.  :)  It would have been 52, if I had a bit more cash on hand....

It may have been 52 after all, I'm not sure -- someone else may have gotten in under the wire.

I have yet to do the final count but I'm pretty sure that it's fifty-one;
the record will be straight when we post the names and copies-issued data
on the website.

BC LE Update:

I have received the final copies of the Bottle City LE maps from the printer and they are tremendous!

80# coated paper like the old texaprint in a way (they did us a favor and upped the grade, woohoo!), 22"x27", excellent foldability (no creasing or cracking) and excellent readibility from the file as reproduced.

Jason Braun did the layout for this, so thank him for his excellent work when you finally see it.

Good start to a part of the project which at one point had me biting my nails. :)
