Preorders don't appear to be up beyond GAME. I want to get the Switch version.

If you are up for pre-ordering the game, Squinty, you may as well back the Kickstarter - it'll probably be a little cheaper that way!

Concerned about exporting it tbh. Never used Kickstarter either.

This is what I am thinking, if the physical version is subject to tax and extra costs then it will cost more than a standard pre-order at GAME (it will likely be cheaper at other retailers once they have it up)

Long Live Switch Squad!

Those of you who backed the W101 Kickstarter, check your emails as they're handing out codes.

I backed it on the physical Switch tier, and they sent me a Steam key by way of apology for the delay in shipping physical copies. :D

Shame they just gave everyone Steam codes by default rather than a code for the platform you actually chose in the first place.

I got my code yesterday and have been playing it for a couple of hours. It's a heck of a lot of fun, and as manic as I remember.

Some of the second screen features from the Wii U are a little bit clumsy, but quickly figured out.

I decided to start it on Easy though as I actually wanted to see more than the first couple of levels this time!

Hey, whatever gets you over the finish line. You need to experience the tail end of the game. It's pretty awesome.

Thanks :) Yeah, I'd forgotten how mental even the opening sections were so I can imagine it just escalating as it goes. Not long got Wonder Green, I think I've forgotten more than I thought I had as he was a complete surprise!

Just heard the rerecorded version of Tables Turn. Why make a new version of this. It was perfect the way it was.

Happened to me too. Would’ve been cheaper just waiting another week and buying it when it’s properly released :fp:

EDIT: it's happened to a lot of folk on ResetEra too.

Also been stung :(. Does anyone know if you can pay via card at the depot itself? I want the game now, I don't want to wait 2 days. I don't have anything smaller than £20 and I'm not so sure they'll have change. Don't fancy tipping the Royal Mail almost £4 on top of their £8 handling fee :x

Dunno, I just paid via paypal through their website and then I'm supposed to be getting it tomorrow. I'd be amazed if they didn't take card at the depot though.
