So according to the forums a lot of the shipments got held up in customs due to incliment weather and Christmas/New Years. I'm still waiting for mine as well. If I haven't received it by end of next week I'm going to contact them.

You'll probably be waiting for a while. It's Chinese New Year and from what I hear business practically grinds to a halt. I tried ordering from a Chinese website last week and got a notice saying it would be at least a month.

I got mine on last Saturday (Jan 8th) and got the same email in Dec.
Like MrPopo said if you don't get yours by next Monday, I would call or visit the post office. The game came from China and because of customs you have to sign for it. I'm thinking if you don't have it by next week maybe you weren't home when they tried to deliver it and the little notice got lost.

EDIT: I just saw this on the Pier Solar forums:
For anyone who didn't contact us yet and still waiting for their copies, please do through the contact form on the website. You will get a tracking number.

Since I don't want to double post: I tried for about an hour to find the Western Continent... any assistance would be nice. I will gladly accept help even if it comes with a side of ridicule for lack of patience.

Makes you wonder if the second run will have as many shipping issues and delays as the first did.

The reprint will also ship from China. If shipping from China was the problem, then the delays will happen again. If it was because of the weather and holidays it should ship faster.

Thanks. I tried that forest already... sometimes these highly detailed graphics are too detailed that I cant tell if there is a path or not on some screens.
Anyway I made it past and found the person I was looking for, man I'm really digging this game.

Got my copy today in good old Europe. Packaging is amazing. Pity that I'm away for 2 days so I can't try the game.

My copy arrived today! I'm going to be trying it out later tonight. I'm really impressed with the packaging; they didn't skimp in any way.

I have found the game to be quite fun... and hard. The lack of healing spells (and time it takes to perform them) ratioed well to the damage many enemies deal.
But like I said I love this game. I would have never guessed it homebrew since it feels like something from the era on par with Lunar.
