Hello Everyone!


Most shipments of the game have already reached backers and we are extremely curious about one thing... has anyone managed to build a base on Mars and win against the automata on the hardest level yet?


Shipments

We are still receiving information from some backers that their shipment has not yet arrived. Those living in the United Kingdom need to be patient - shipments are made from the European Union, and due to Brexit, customs clearance of shipments from outside the United Kingdom takes a significant amount of time. We are unable to expedite this process, it is completely out of our hands. However, the good news is that backers from the UK don't have to worry about any additional charges for this.

Shipments to Brazil are currently on hold due to national restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are very sorry about this, but we are unable to assist you in any way with these shipments. As soon as these restrictions are lifted, we will send shipments.

French, Spanish and Italian partners have picked up, or are in the process of picking up, their language versions - those waiting for Rocketmen in any of these languages will soon receive their pledge. We apologise for any inconvenience.


The dark side of ... cards

During the production of the English version of the game a goblin got into the producer's hands and messed things up a bit. In the text on the card "Journey before Destination" relating to the Personal Goal a translation from another language version found its way in. You can download the corrected card from our website and print it yourself.

Colour: https://phalanxgames.co.uk/pliki/Rocketmen%20-%20card%20148.pdf


This card will not be played in every game and it will not affect your enjoyment of the game in any way. You can play without it. However, we are very sorry for this. We will not be able to send out the corrected card to everyone - the shipping costs will be extremely high and such an operation could ruin the whole project.

We have come to the conclusion that every person who has supported the campaign (not only the English version) will receive a 50% discount on the purchase of... the first expansion to the game "Rocketmen". Yes, you see, we are in the process of developing the expansion, which will probably be released in 2022.


Stay safe!

That’s one small step for a PHALANX, one giant leap for the backers
about 2 months ago – Wed, Mar 17, 2021 at 01:29:23 AM

Hello Everyone!


We hope everyone is well and remains safe in these uncertain times.

The day of the start of the shipments is near. In the pictures below you can see the final boxes of  three language versions (the others are also almost ready), which we have checked to be sure, and we haven't caught any errors. This means that the process of completion will not be interrupted, and shipments to backers will start soon - probably next week. By the end of March, the first games should already be with the backers.

When shipments begin, each backer will receive a tracking code, which will also be available on BackerKit when ordering.

Once again, we would like to remind you that backers from the UK will not be charged any additional costs. However, due to Brexit and the new rules of international shipping, packages need to go through customs which can take from a few days to a few weeks. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about it in this case - we promise that if there are difficulties with shipping to the UK (and any other country) we will try to help.


Stay safe!

The conquest of space is imminent

Hello Space Pioneers!


Preparations for the final phase of the project are going well. The last components are still on their way, so packing will probably start at the end of February, which gives us hope that shipments to backers will start as previously announced - in the middle of March. It is worth bearing in mind that weather conditions and restrictions may affect the final work and so this may slip slightly into late March. We believe that the whole shipping process will be completed as early as April.

For the moment, we do not foresee any further delays. We will keep you informed about everything.

So far we have not shown you what the miniatures box will look like. We are very pleased with it, and in a little while those who ordered the deluxe version will also be able to enjoy it.


Smooth space sailing!

First space flight is near
4 months ago – Thu, Jan 21, 2021 at 03:19:21 AM

Hello Everyone!


I hope the new year brings lots of good things for everyone - including great games.

We are currently waiting for the last shipment of components, which should arrive early next month. If there are no delays, we can optimistically assume that we will start packing games in mid-February. If all goes well, shipments to backers will start in late February or early March. However, if there is a delay in any of these activities, or if work progresses more slowly than anticipated, the delivery date may be slightly delayed.

We are assuming that the last shipments to backers will arrive in March. Those who pre-ordered the game will receive the game shortly after backers.


Keep warm!

Space Journey & Far Horizon
5 months ago – Fri, Dec 04, 2020 at 01:14:18 PM

Hello Everyone!


I hope that you are all keeping safe and healthy.

This year there have been many adversities, but finally the journey of the ready-made, final figurines has begun. Although it will still take a few more weeks for them to reach us, this is good news - especially as these are some of the most demanding, long-lasting components that manufacturers have developed over time. The choice of colours, the right shapes - we had to redesign them many times, and make changes in order to finally get the perfect product to make space exploration a thematic experience.

We received a slightly different message from the printing house. Due to too much work and precautions, they will not be able to start printing paper components within the recently agreed time. So again, it will be postponed, which means  that we will not complete the games in December. January has become uncertain. We’d therefore prefer to warn you straight away that the most realistic time to send the games to backers is February 2021.

The next update will come out in January. Therefore, I hope that you will spend the holidays with your loved ones and playing your favourite games (e.g. PHALANX).


Stay safe!
