IMPORTANT STATEMENT ABOUT UPZONE POP-UP TERRAIN

Hey Upzone Pop-Up Terrain Fans!
We thank you all for all of your kind support! We have a very important statement that we wanted to make known immediately:
We wanted to post an update about a recent Kickstarter project “Titans Terrain” and some of the comments we have been receiving about it. We are in no way affiliated with Tabletop Titans or their product. We are not working on their terrain or publishing their terrain.
Tabletop Titans were one of a very small handful of content creators we contacted and they expressed excitement and interest in Upzone and requested we send them a sample prototype copy. We then mailed them an early reviewer Sample Copy of our “Cathedral Zone” last year while we were running our campaign, for Upzone. And since then we never received our prototype back and never heard anything back from the Tabletop Titans team.
We really appreciate the exposure that the amazing content creators that did review our product gave us as it helped our campaign out a great deal. We’re a small indie company who work very hard to spread the word about our products, so all help is very appreciated. However, it is surprising and extremely upsetting to the Everything Epic team and Upzone’s designer to see such a similar project released from a group of people in the world that we trusted with one of our prototypes giving them access to a very early copy of the product we designed, developed, playtested, and promoted with our blood sweat and tears for a very long time.
We expected to see some competing products released after the success of our Kickstarter for Upzone Pop-Up Terrain and we welcome it! However, we are shocked and very disappointed that Tabletop Titans have chosen to emulate our product so closely, even name conventions such as their expansion “Cathedral Square”, which is extremely similar to our “Cathedral Zone” All the while having access to an actual copy of our product before release. While it is impossible to know whether they did start work on their product before our Kickstarter, they most certainly should have disclosed they were working on a very similar product before agreeing to review and promote our product Upzone and accept one of our very few costly sample copies, which we overnighted them during our Kickstarter campaign.
Once again, we, the Everything Epic team, thank each and every one of you for your support and look forward to getting the Upzone Pop-Up Terrain System into your hands as soon as possible!
If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below, send us a message, and you can always email us at email@example.com

UpZone News and Good news!

The past 2 months have been Convention heavy, and we aren't done yet! Next we will be at BGG con in November. In December we will be at PAX unplugged. If you are able to attend either please come say hi! While showing off various Zones there was something that came to our attention specifically with the dungeon zone.
Dungeon Zone addition
With UpZone on display people would just have to touch it and see how it works! When picking up and putting down the rooms from the dungeon zone sometimes it would move the layout. This is a minor thing that can be mitigated by careful placement. However, as people will be excited at the table when UpZone is enhancing their experience, rather than have to keep that in check we designed a solution. We will be including clips made from cardstock that you can use to "clip" rooms together. This is completely optional and not really necessary however, we want to provide it for those that plan to build elaborate zones and will find this useful. The core design of UpZone is kept in mind here to have fast set up, fast take down, and easy storage. These clips will provide more stability for those who may want it.
More Good News
Adding some additional clips wasn't the only good news. It will not add any extra printing time! As of now still on track for end of December print completion. The estimate is still February-March for fulfillment. If that changes we will let you know!

It was really amazing seeing peoples reaction to Upzone at both GenCon and Origins. We had Upzone proudly on display and it is clear that people LOVE it even in its sample form.
So many people stopped to see just exactly how Upzone worked. When I would reach over and simply fold one of the boards closed it was so satisfying seeing their mind be blown! " Wow, That is Epic!"
As of now no new updates to the print schedule we are still on track!
What is next?
Next we will be in Essen Germany for Spiel! and of course will will have Upzone on display! We are very exited to show as many people as possible this Epic terrain system! If you are going to be there please come visit our booth and say hi. Hall 5 Row C booth 130

Up in the Print Zone

We wanted to follow up on Update #37 and let you know what's been happening. Upzone officially started printing AND we have a print schedule. The schedule has it printing all the way into December/January. The long printing time is due to the intricacy of the printing, perfecting the samples, as well as and mostly the skilled workers needed for assembly.
Upzone is so epic that we have to make sure each zone is done correctly and at a high quality - and because of Covid delays and print material shipping delays it has extended the manufacturing timeline. We are working with the printer to try and shorten the timeline any way we can and will follow up with an update if we get any news. But as of right now, it looks about 2-3 months late for delivery. We will keep you up to date on all developments and look forward to getting Upzone in your hands as soon as possible. So Delivery which was originally for October, won't be until at least End of January 2022. We appreciate your support and patience!
More Pictures of the samples soon! --- The zones are all good to go! Right now we just are reviewing the Samples for the insert instructions and the stretch goals :)
Gen Con, Origins, Spiel...
Everything Epic will be at Gen Con and other upcoming conventions! If you are in attendance come say Hi and check out some of the Upzone Samples! Join us at GenCon Booth 229, Hall J.
With these being almost back to back, we may be a little slower getting back to comments and emails. We will do our best to continue to engage, if we do not get back to you right away, once we are back "in the office" we will follow up.
PledgeManager will close soon!
PLEASE fill out your pledge manager we will be closing Backerkit Pledge Manager very soon! This is your last chance for adding extra zones to your pledge. We will announce when the pledge manager is closing in the next update. If you can help it do not delay and finalize your pledge.

Printing Update !

Hello Epic Upzone backers!
We wanted to give an update on what is happening with Upzone. In a previous update we told you that we turned over files to the manufacturer. Since then we have received E-Proofs, made some adjustments, then had a sample sent to us that was not exactly what we wanted. After more back and forth we got the quality and engineering where it needs to be. After the adjustments we are very excited. We know you are going to love it!
What does this mean?
We are at the PRINTER! Upzone will start (if it hasn't already) to print and be manufactured! We are looking at around 50 days and then it gets prepped for freight from China.
PledgeManager will close soon!
As stated in the last update if you have not PLEASE fill out your pledge manager we will be closing backerkit soon and it is possible this is your last chance for adding extra zones to your pledge.
We are so happy with Upzone becoming a reality that we have been testing new ideas and layouts and have big plans for the future.
