Ordering not possible anymore – time has run out!
I have been pondering on how to sell Vectorblade. Since I limited myself to 100 copies (+ a few spare ones) it just may happen, that not everyone who wants to buy a copy can get a copy.
Some games do not sell well, even if only a few are made available (sadly some of “Der Luchs” games come to mind).
Some other games sell hundreds of copys (Kristof Tuts games e.g.).
My personal expectation actually is, that I could sell more than 100, but as explained many times before – I am not willing to produce more.
I WILL however place everything I did for Vectorblade into the public domain like:
– the artwork of Jacek Selanski (NOT Public domain, but can be used for Vectorblade purposes (only!)) (box art/overlay)
– source code and binaries (for flash PCBs and VecFever)
– Vide project and vectorlists
– EAGLE / gerber files / bom to produce the PCBs
– music and sound pieces done by VTK
– detailed instructions for building everything
Sooo – even if you miss out on a copy of Vectorblade from me, you can do your own – or perhaps somebody else will.
a) write to XXXXX, that you would like to buy a copy
b) provide a valid email address
c) provide a “pseudonym” / “alias”
(the alias might be used publically to list who is interested)
d) orders are “open” till August 31 (end of day, Berlin Time)
e) if I don’t get 100 orders, I might “open” for longer
f) if I get more than 100 orders, I will randomly select the people who will receive a copy
g) there are a couple of friends/acquaintances who will receive copies non randomly (about 10-20)
h) every one will receive only one copy max (unless you trick me convincingly)
i) cost: 80€ per copy + whatever postage fee to deliver the game to your country/address
j) after closing the order window, I will write to the recipience an email about the actual costs (including postage)
k) payment will be done via paypal (or if you live near Düsseldorf cash), preferably family/friends (if you don’t trust me – don’t order)
l) once I receive payment, I will send the game within a couple of days
m) I have all materials here beside me, Vectorblade has gone “gold” this week, final testing is being done, if everything goes right I will have 100 complete boxed and finished games next to me within a week!
(I actually only have to flash the proms with the last version and place them on the pcb)
I can take no responsibilty for covering the costs (refund), of any games which go missing in the mail nor can I send another game (since I plan to sell the whole batch).
I will try my very best to send the games with a reliable partner, I will provide tracking numbers and such and if the buyer wishes to send with ensurance, I will do that (extra costs must be covered by the buyer).
In addition to that I sadly can not do more – please be aware of that.
