update includes two new P500 additions, updated charging and shipping info, an
updated Production Outlook, and lots of other news tidbits. I hope you enjoy
we get into all that, though, I want to take a minute to say "Thank You!" 2013
has been one of our best years ever here at GMT, and I'm very aware that this
success is a team and group effort. So I want to thank all of you who have
helped us in any way on the creation, development, and production side of
things, because without all of you designers, developers, artists, testers, and
production folks, none of these games would exist. And I want to thank all of
you customers who buy and enjoy our games, who take the time to give us feedback
on how to make them even better, and who have supported us through good times
and bad. Without your continued faith in us and ongoing support of our games,
there would be no GMT Games.
to all of you, please accept my sincere thanks for all that you've done to help
us be able to keep doing a job we love making games that bring us - and we hope
many besides us - many hours of gaming enjoyment.
the holiday season approaching, I also want to pass along, from our family to
yours, our holiday greetings and our best wishes to you and yours for a happy
holiday season and a joyous New Year. I hope you all get some time off to spend
with family and friends, and maybe even with a few of our games.
on to the news....
The Supreme Commander Update Kit
Right after we finish
our current P500 shipments (The Dark Valley and The Hunters), we'll begin
shipping update kits for The Supreme Commander.
If you bought
the game directly from us, you're already on our list to get the update, so you
don't need to do anything else to get it. There were a FEW people who got a copy
at a convention before we stopped shipment on the game. If you are one of those
folks and haven't contacted us already, please let the office ladies know that
you need an update kit, and we'll ship it out to you.
I want to give
a big "Thank You" to Kevin Bernatz for stepping in and helping us get this kit
ready for you. With Dan deployed right now, having someone both talented and
trustworthy - and that's Kevin - step up to help us was really crucial to us
being able to get the problems identified and fixes made, so that you guys can
play what is a very cool game without worrying about the errata. Thanks
we get all the update kits out to you guys, we'll open all the games that we
have in the warehouse (remember, we never shipped these to distributors or
stores) and replace the original parts with the ones in the Update Kit. Then,
whenever Tony is ready, we'll start shipping the games to distributors, so those
of you who buy from your local store should see them start popping up in stores
sometime in January.
1914 Glory's End + When Eagles Fight
We've received about 150 additional orders for this since we combined the two
games into one package last month! It's sitting now at 454 orders. If the
current order trends continue, this one will be getting a production slot
quickly. Thanks for your support. I personally can't wait to see these Ted
Raicer classics in a GMT box.
Herman's Instructional Videos
has been creating some "Good Strategy in Empire of the Sun" videos that do a
tremendous job of teaching you how to play while they are instructing you on
strategy. Mark has just posted three of these videos to the GMT YouTube Channel.
Just click the link below - you'll find the videos in the RECENT UPLOADS section
of the page.
