Hi all! For those who aren’t on Facebook, just wanted to give you the heads up here. I made a walkthrough for the game, and it’s a legit book that will be released on February 15 (pending my approval of the proof copy). The details are (copied and pasted from Obduction fan page FB post):

Paperback, 8.5 x 11", 110 glossy pages with 135 full-color images, 14 full-page images, 5 two-page spread, diagrams, detailed maps, alternate endings, additional content, step-by-step illustrated tutorial for the Villein number system, and more. Price will be discounted at $35.99 (before shipping/tax). One wishes it could be less expensive, but with over 100 pages of color that's not possible. Purchase available online only, link to follow.

Lastly, if anyone lives in NYC or plans to be here on February 17, I am having a book launch party to which you are invited. PM me for details on that and I'll send you the invite.

I hope you will enjoy the book (*nervous!*). It was a blast making it!

I don’t know how to attach photos here from my phone... :| Help??

Well done, Baladria, this is a great achievement! Will international shipping be available? I was wanting to buy some souvenirs from Xing the Game but shipping to UK turned out to be incredibly expensive :cry:

Its international, yep! There aren’t general shipping rates available to check because I guess it’s a case-by-case basis. I put in a London address and the priority mail shipping is $5.65 (USD) and is shipped 1-5 days after printing. Apparently there’s no tax for international shipping, but maybe that’s different on your end. I know people had to pay weird extra fees for the Obduction game box et al. Each book is printed on demand via Lulu.co, and it take about 5 or so business days to print.

That is surprisingly good news, the items from Xing were going to cost $50 to post and they were just coasters, not a book. Looking forward to putting in an order :mrgreen:

I’m looking forward to your support! I think major companies...are the creators of Xing a big company? Forgive my ignorance. That may have a lot to do with it. They can get away with that because they know people will buy it anyway. But I’m speculating here. I don’t know if there will be an import tax as someone else had asked me.

No, they're tiny.

International shipping is weird. If you're doing it yourself, expect nasty surprises. If you're letting Lulu handle the shipping then it's whatever they say it is.

The Xing team were trying to help me get their coasters but couldn't find a way of getting the postage cost to be anything other than totally disproportionate. It wasn't their fault. Interesting insights, belford. I am looking forward to publication, Baladria!

I checked the site and they say they are not responsible for import tax...........................so I guess some people may have to pay something extra? I hope not. That's really lame. It's not like it's some food item or a cow or whatever. It's a book. :roll:
