    Default Dreamcast Sturmwind Delay

    Redspotgames has announced a delay in the shipping of their killer new Dreamcast Shooter Sturmwind. I know a few of us here have ordered one so here is a link to the news:

    Oh yeah, I wondered what had happened to that. It's not a small delay either, but improving the game with the help of/because of the testers' feedback seems a good reason. Instead of just going ahead with the release.

    Seriously? An actual Dremcast title in production? That blows my mind.

    Funny how they are all shmups though... not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Maybe I should finally buy my VGA Adapter...

    Yet, another Sturmwind delay:

    Sadly the production of Sturmwind has seen some complications. We a very sorry we have to bring you this news. Nevertheless we would like to thank everyone who is interested in Sturmwind for their continuous faith in this ambitious Indie project. You keep this project going.Diese Meldung ist auch in Deutsch verfügbar (siehe unten).(English)Production complications: Sturmwind is about to be delayedIn spite of best planing, the release of Sturmwind has to be postponed: Our long-term CD-ROM manufacturer surprisingly had to declare bankruptcy after 19 years in business. From 40 employees only a few remained. Therefore this resulted in the situation that the scheduled delivery date for Sturmwind could not be met in the end.The only possibility has been to relocate the production - to avoid further delays of the bankrupt facility. Nevertheless items like the spaceship models have been completely manufactured already. Our new partner is one of the largest videogame CD / DVD press plants in Europe with over 50 years of experience in medium production. In the meanwhile we already placed our production order for Sturmwind.The release date is set to TBA ("to be announced") consequently.Details are currently clarified between redspotgames, Duranik and the new facility. Also we are arranging material for another announcement with more exact information within December, which will be after Christmas however. All orders in the redspotgames online shop will remain valid.(German / Deutsch)Produktions-Komplikationen: Sturmwind steht Verschiebung bevorTrotz bester Planung muss die Veröffentlichung von Sturmwind verschoben werden: Unser langjähriger CD-ROM-Produzent - mit dem wir bereits Wind and Water: Puzzle Battles und Rush Rush Rally Racing realisiert haben - musste nach 19 Jahren Betrieb plötzlich und überraschend Konkurs anmelden. Aus den einst 40 Mitarbeitern blieben nur noch eine Hand voll übrig. Daraus ergab sich letzte Woche die Situation, dass der Liefertermin für Sturmwind schlussendlich nicht mehr einhalten werden konnte.Die einzige Möglichkeit bestand darin - um weitere Verschiebungen des in Konkurs befindlichen Presswerks zu vermeiden - nun die Produktion zu verlagern. Einige Teile wie die Raumschiffmodelle sind bereits komplett hergestellt. Unser neuer Partner ist eines der größten Videospiele-Presswerke Europas mit über 50 Jahren Erfahrung in der Datenträgerproduktion. In der Zwischenzeit haben wir diesem bereits den Auftrag für Sturmwind erteilt. Der Veröffentlichungstermin ist somit auf TBA ("to be announced") gesetzt.Details werden gerade zwischen redspotgames, Duranik und dem neuen Presswerk abgeklärt. Auch bereiten wir gerade Material für eine weitere Ankündigung genauerer Informationen im Dezember vor, welche jedoch erst nach Weihnachten erscheinen wird. Alle Bestellungen im redspotgames online shop behalten ihre Gültigkeit.

    Just got this email this morning. So glad, it appears this will be finally released!

    Dear Sir or Madam
    Dear customers and fans

    The time has finally come: Sturmwind is about to see its release on April 24th 2013. We have received quite a lot of feedback regarding insured shipping and would like to clarify some details.

    Shipping methods:
    All pre-orders have been chosen (and calculated) with the standard 2nd class shipping method. It does not offer insurance nor tracking number. If the parcel is lost, we can not send replacements due to the limited quantities of Sturmwind.
    This means, your pre-order of Sturmwind does not have any tracking nor insurance so far and therefore there are high risks of damage. This applies to all destinations and both Sturmwind editions (Limited Edition "Windstärke 12" is very fragile freight).


    Still the standard shipping very safely packed by us!


    If you want to upgrade to insured (international) shipping with tracking, the shipping will be increased by 14,30 EUR (18,60 EUR total). If you like to have this 1st class shipping w/ tracking number and insurance, please contact the redspotgames customer support and they will upgrade it for you: www.redspotgames.com/support

    Rates for 1st class shipping within Germany is 7,60 EUR - please contact the redspotgames online shop as well to arrange a change of the shipping.

    The redspotgames online shop would like to accommodate all customers and agreed to use 4 times more bubble wrap for all insured parcels than we can pack into 2nd class shippings. We want you to receive the game as safely packed as possible.
    Due to some questions: Play-Asia.com may not have reserve stock, so replacement and further benefits are only possible though the redspotgames online shop.


    Payment within Europe: If you have a bank account and / or shipping address in Europe, please pay the total amount asap via bank transfer. It's free for you, we both do not have to pay PayPal fees and it enjoys priority concerning shipping.

    Account holder: redspotgames
    GLS Bank eG, Christstr. 9, 44789 Bochum, Germany
    Account no. 8201588900
    so-called "BLZ" 43060967
    Swift (BIC) GENODEM1GLS
    IBAN DE73430609678201588900

    Important: Write your order no. incl. quantity, "Sturmwind" and the edition ("Limited Edition" or "standard") in the subject or description.

    If you are using a bank account based in Europe, please be certain that you are choosing the SEPA method which is free of charge within Europe.
    Some unexperienced bank employees will ask for a fee even though SEPA is 100% free within Europe. Insist that this method is free of charge.
    Further information can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_Euro_Payments_Area

    We do not accept payments that contain fees on our account or do not include the full payment. Orders like these will be still "pending"!!

    Payment international:
    If your shipping address is outside Europe, please pay the total amount with your order no. incl. quantity, "Sturmwind" and the edition ("Limited Edition" or "standard") in the description to following PayPal address:
    paypal@redspotgames.com

    Or you can contact the redspotgames customer support and request an invoice. Please note that this option will take more time.

    It will have benefits regarding shipping in both cases if you have paid early!

    Thanks for your time, and don't hesitate to contact the redspotgames customer support if there are any questions: www.redspotgames.com/support

    Have a nice day!

    With best regards
