The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem

Created by Edmund McMillen

Update: Preorders open again until March 31 or until we sell out again -- whichever comes first! After selling out on our initial preorders, we've since secured another small print run of Four Souls Requiem. Only pre-ordered copies of the game come with an exclusive 10th Anniversary Isaac card. Pre-order the retail version of The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem and the add-ons from the original Kickstarter campaign. All orders placed now will ship in Fall 2022. Please note that we are still finalizing the design of some of our products and there may be subtle differences between the items shown here and the final products. Credit card charges will appear as: Maestro Media

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Shipping Update #13 / Isaac Hoodies! / New Maestro Project
7 months ago – Wed, Sep 27, 2023 at 01:01:58 PM

Hello Friends,

To start with an important reminder: If you have not received your items yet and you have not engaged our support team, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE reach out to us HERE. With the exception of a few reshipments to replace damaged or missing components, our fulfillment partners are reporting near completion. If you haven't got your stuff yet don't worry, however, we'll get it sorted for you - just reach out to us!

Fulfilment

Oceania: We are awaiting official confirmation from Aetherworks, but we believe that all splitships/reships are done or nearly done in the region. The last update we had from Aetherworks was that there were 70 left to go out last Friday. Additionally, we identified 7 backers that filled out their surveys late. We are working to get those fulfilled with Aetherworks ASAP.

EU/UK: Whole item reships are almost entirely finished (bar just a few stragglers), and GamesQuest are now working on finishing up individual component reships - that means things like empty boxes and individual cards/decks of cards. We have been told these should have finished being sent out by the end of next week. Additionally, we identified roughly 60 backers that filled out their surveys late or need an updated address as a Russian/Ukrainian backer. We are working to get those fulfilled with GamesQuest ASAP and reaching out to backers who need to update their address.

US: The US has been declared complete outside of address holds. We will reach out to backers again today for address confirmation. If you are in the US and are still missing something, or have not yet received your things, please let us know!

Asia: VFI have reported that each of their regions have completed fulfillment. Similarly to the US, if you have not yet received your things, please let us know!

Secret Store: There are less than 10 secret store orders left to send in the EU/UK! These final few orders are awaiting things like addresses to be corrected when the system hasn't recognized the address as valid for shipping. We will reach out to these fans individually to resolve these issues. The US secret store orders are also set to finish going out this week.

We want to thank all of our partners who helped us with quick and expeditious fulfillment of these secret store orders!

Shirts: There are a few cases where people are still waiting on an individual t-shirt or two. In these cases, we will now be split shipping the missing t-shirts directly from the US.

------------------------

New Merch!

The Kickstarter might be over, but the awesome Isaac merch is not! Check out this gorgeously unsettling Famine t-shirt with art by the wonderful Sony_Shock!

Black t-shirt with art depicting Famine, the harbinger of the apocalypse, on top of a horse's head on a stick. A card for the game Four Souls with matching art sits to the right of the t-shirt.

Until the end of September (Pacific time US), you can also grab yourself a free bonus alt art Famine card with any order over $25, featuring the same stunning art as the t-shirt! Join us in celebrating Isaac's birthday in style!

If the awesome new t-shirt wasn't enough, we have also just launched pre-orders for a selection of hoodies featuring fan-favorite designs from The Unboxing of Isaac - just in time for the colder months ahead! You can check them out here.

These beauties will be shipping in early November 2023 - and if you snag one before September is finished, your order will even come with a Famine promo card!

------------------------

New Project!

On another note, Maestro Media have just launched a new campaign on Kickstarter -  Hello Kitty: Day at the Park!

Image depicting a line-up of Hello Kitty characters in a green park in front of a rainbow. In the top right it reads 'Hello Kitty Day at the Park', and there is a Kickstarter 'Project We Love' badge in the bottom left.

Join Hello Kitty and Friends for an adventure-filled day exploring the park in this brand-new and exciting tile-laying, token-collecting, adventure-completing tabletop game from Maestro Media and Sanrio, featuring beloved characters from Hello Kitty! A whole host of awesome people have worked hard to bring this project to life. You can check it out over on the Kickstarter page, and - if you'd like - join us for all the fun the next month will bring!

------------------------

That is it from us for this update! As always, please do just reach out to us (here!) if you need any help - or even if you just want to say hi! We're always keen to hear from our fans, and to help everyone out whenever we can.

Shipping Update #11
10 months ago – Wed, Jun 14, 2023 at 05:27:47 PM

Hello Friends,

We want to start this update with a huge thank you to all of our fulfillment partners for working through the challenges of delivering over 100,000 shipments around the entire world. It is no easy feat and they've been working tirelessly to get everything out.

We've got some big updates:

Italian Language Games - The missing games have been found and we're told the EU fulfillment center has begun shipping them out! We don't have a wrap date for this, but with about 350 orders to go out, we expect fulfillment will spill into next week.

Oceania Fulfillment - After that email last week, we're happy to say that Aetherworks has begun shipping out those remaining packages.

UK/EU Fulfillment - After a pause, the remaining packages are boxed and we're told they have started shipping out. The expectation is these will wrap in the next 2 weeks or so.

Split Shipping - Packages are now being sent out to backers that might be missing a few items. The relocating and/or reprinting of all items is nearing completion, see below:

  • Pins - these were reprinted after damages. They have been successfully printed and now just need to be shipped to the fulfillment centers.
  • Dick Knots - Gamesquest is doing a new inventory count across the different fulfillment centers. We should have more news soon.
  • Shirts - these were reprinted after damages. They also just need to be shipped to the fulfillment centers.
  • Rolled Coins - these have been relocated and should be ready to start going out soon.
  • Satan Heads - packages with the Satan Heads are going out this week and next week.
  • Signed Prints - these have been relocated and should be ready to start going out soon.
  • Draw You As Tier - these are in our possession. At the moment, we are just waiting on appropriate shipping containers to arrive so they can make it to you undamaged.

If your order arrived with one of the above items missing, we want to reassure you that we're aware that you still need those items and will ship them out as soon as they are available. You do not need to message us letting us know.

Asia Fulfillment - There were about 100 orders on hold due to missing phone numbers, but these have been sorted and will ship soon. Fulfillment in Asia is ongoing and should be wrapping soon.

Late Pledges & Shipping Issues - If you did not complete your Backerkit survey until after we announced that surveys were closing, your pledge will not have shipped yet. We will be delivering late pledges to the fulfillment centers after they've completed delivery of the initial orders. This means if you didn't complete your survey until after February 3rd 2023, your games will be in the next round. Don't worry, though - you will still get your stuff!

Everywhere else - Everywhere except those places listed above continues as normal. All remaining fulfillment centers are reporting 99% completion of the initial wave, with the remaining 1% being errors in addresses and such. We are working to resolve any orders that fall into this category.

Q&A

“My tracking stopped working or my package was returned to sender”

  • Reaching out to the fulfillment center is going to be the quickest way to resolve these issues. You can contact us, but we're just going to then contact the fulfillment center to work on getting things moving and end up playing telephone between our emails to them and our responses to you.

"I pre-committed and only received Ultra Pride or Corrupted Data not both"

  • Please, please, please check the sleeve. Both cards are in the same sleeve and in 99% of the cases the second card has simply been hiding behind the first!

"Did I miss my tracking number email?"

  • If you think you may have missed a tracking email, please go here and look: boirequiem.backerkit.com/backer/review. If there is not a tracking number there, we also do not have a tracking number for your pledge yet.

"My tracking label says label created and has been for a while"

  • If your tracking number has been on "label created" for a while and/or has missed the estimated delivery, we apologize. The estimated delivery is automatically added by the courier (FEDEX/UPS). We are at their mercy for how quickly they decide to scan our packages into their system. For Canadian backers, this is because your label was created when the boxes were put on the truck. Those tracking numbers will start showing movement as soon as the truck is released from customs.

"My xxxxxxx is damaged in some way"

  • Please reach out to https://maestromedia.com/pages/contactus. Picture verification is required, so please respond to that initial email that tells you we got your request with some photos to help speed up the process. We will help you out as quickly as possible.

Step by step, package by package - we are getting there! We are eternally grateful for your patience as we work to resolve these final few issues.

To those of you still waiting - hopefully there will be good news in the near future. We had a good number of the remaining orders go out last week, and we anticipate that next week will be much the same.

If you do have any issues, please do reach out to us - we always want to help! Our small support team are still working overtime to try and bring the backlog down, but it is taking us longer than normal to reply to everyone at the moment. We apologise for this, and hope that it will improve soon. In the meantime, we just want to reassure you that we will reply to every email we receive, and to thank you for your patience!

We'll be back when we have some more updates to share. Until then, keep being awesome.

~The Maestro Team

Shipping Update #10
11 months ago – Wed, May 31, 2023 at 11:53:57 AM

Hello Friends,

As of this writing, we have been given tracking numbers for 96% of all Kickstarter shipments and 80% of all Backerkit pre-orders. We know how frustrating it is for the 4,000 folks who have not gotten everything yet. We are spending each and every day talking with the fulfillment centers, trying to get them to push out the remaining unfulfilled orders, as well as the 1,500 or so reshipments we have for damages. We are working as fast as our team can to finish this up for everyone. Here's what we have for updates:

Late Pledges & Shipping Issues - If you did not complete your Backerkit survey until after we announced that surveys were closing, your pledge will not have not shipped yet. We will be delivering late pledges to the fulfillment centers after they've completed delivery of the initial orders. This means if you didn't complete your survey until after February 3rd 2023, your games will be in the next round. Don't worry, though - you will still get your stuff!

We're also beginning to work through the few shipments that had errors. This can happen for a huge variety of reasons, but what it means is that the courier who would be delivering the game has rejected it for some reason, usually an issue with addresses. If you are in this boat, we are in the process of emailing to ask for further information (if needed). The message will come from someone with an @maestromedia.com email address. If it's an issue we can fix without emailing (such as changing an ä to an a) we will simply make that change to expedite those orders.

Split Shipping - Packages are now being sent out to backers that might be missing a few items. This is whilst we reallocate things between different fulfillment centers and remake some goods that were damaged in transit. If you receive a package that is missing:

  • Pins
  • Dick Knots
  • Shirts
  • Rolled Coins
  • Satan Heads
  • Signed Prints
  • Translated Games (In the US we're waiting on a delivery of all languages, EU is short of Italian games, and a few French and Spanish games)

We want to reassure you that we're aware that you still need those items and will ship them out as soon as they are available. You do not need to message us letting us know.

Italian Language Games from GamesQuest: We're waiting on one piece of information, but we believe the games have been located by GamesQuest and should begin shipping soon. In our next update we will have a more concrete plan. Note: There are a few French and Spanish games this also applies to.

Damaged Items & Requests: The team is working through emails and requests as quickly as possible, but at 120,000 packages being delivered over the past 2 months, that is a lot of requests. We are diligently working through each email we receive, but we are approximately a week behind. Please be patient, we will respond to everyone and make sure we get everything sorted.

Pins: Our manufacturer has told us that pin reprinting will be finished next week. From there we will need to air freight the pins to the various fulfillment centers – which would mean that in total we are 3-4 weeks from those being ready to ship to backers.

Shirts: The shirts that needed to be reprinted have been completed as well. Since these are much bulkier, shipping to the fulfillment centers will be slower, but we're again about 4 weeks from those being ready to ship to backers.

Satan Heads: These should begin to ship in about 2 weeks!

Draw You As Tier Sketches: We have received these from Edmund and once we find suitable packaging to ensure they don't bend in transit, we will begin shipping them out.

Australia: For the patient 190 of you that have been waiting, we were surprised by that email that was sent out by Aetherworks and are currently in an email chain trying to figure it out. Shipping was supposed to start on the 29th, we're working to make sure it starts as soon as possible.

US Fulfillment: The remaining pre-order games will ship by next week. The only items remaining after that point would be the split ship items we've been mentioning in previous updates, as well as a few localized language copies that still need to be received and sent.

CA Fulfillment: This is reported as finished except for items needed that are listed above. As soon as those are ready, the remaining shipments will go out.

Asia Fulfillment: Fulfillment is ongoing, all packages have reached the different fulfillment hubs within Asia and we've seen reports and received tracking for about 50% of all shipments. There are a few dozen folks in China that have been emailed by VFI asking for their address that have not responded. Please check your email and spam folders for a message from VFI and respond. They can also be reached HERE if needed.

UK/Europe/Rest of World Fulfillment: Gamesquest is still working through issues that have held up specific orders. The process is ongoing. Please see the note about Italian, French, and Spanish games above. We're also waiting for Gamesquest to begin shipping our replacement parts, those should be coming shortly.

We really do appreciate how frustrating it is for those of you still waiting. We hope that providing an update like the above helps somewhat. We hope that soon your stuff will be in your hands - we know that will help a lot!

Just to reassure everyone waiting once more: you will get all your stuff! We are working hard to ensure that happens as quickly as possible, but there is no doubt at all that it will happen.

Our support team are also working day and night, but the volume of emails at the moment means it is taking longer than usual for the relatively small team to get back to people. Please do bear with us, we will get round to replying to each and every email we receive.

We'll be back with more updates when we have them - and thank you all for your patience in the meantime!

Shipping Report Week 9
11 months ago – Tue, May 16, 2023 at 12:26:28 PM

Hello Friends,

Apologies for the delay, we were waiting on 3 pieces of information: Canada shipping, Italian Games, and Australia split shipping - more details below.

Late Pledges & Shipping Issues - If you did not complete your Backerkit survey until after we announced that surveys were closing, your pledge will not have not shipped yet. We will be delivering late pledges to the fulfillment centers after they've completed delivery of the initial orders. This means if you didn't complete your survey until after February 3rd 2023, your games will be in the next round. Don't worry, though - you will still get your stuff!

We're also beginning to work through the few shipments that had errors. This can happen for a huge variety of reasons, but what it means is that the courier who would be delivering the game has rejected it for some reason, usually an issue with addresses. If you are in this boat, we are in the process of emailing to ask for further information (if needed). The message will come from someone with an @maestromedia.com email address. If it's an issue we can fix without emailing (such as changing an ä to an a) we will simply make that change to expedite those orders.

Split Shipping (ALL REGIONS!) - We started seeing comments about Italian language games missing and have been waiting for a response from Gamesquest. They've informed us that their EU hub is short some games and have been split shipping. This was not an issue we were aware of until now and we are working with Gamesquest to understand how the issue came about and get it solved as quickly as possible. For now, they are split shipping orders without the Italian language game, and will be sending out the games separately as soon as they are moved from a different fulfillment hub to the EU. Don’t worry, you will still be getting your copy of the game!

More generally speaking, a reminder: Packages are now being sent out to backers that might be missing a few items. This is whilst we reallocate things between different fulfillment centers and remake some goods that were damaged in transit. If you receive a package that is missing:

  • Pins
  • Dick Knots
  • Shirts
  • Rolled Coins
  • Satan Heads
  • Signed Prints
  • Translated Games (In the US we're waiting on a delivery of all languages, EU is short Italian)

We want to reassure you that we're aware that you still need those items and will ship them out as soon as they are available. You do not need to message us letting us know. 

CA Fulfillment - The second truck has FINALLY left customs, has been delivered to the warehouse, and packages are shipping out! Both trucks left at the same time and no one has a good explanation as to why customs decided to hold one truck for further inspection, but it is at least solved now. Apologies again for the delay, and most of the orders to Canada should be completed or in transit now.

EU Fulfillment - We are now 99% shipped. I don't have an exact count of how many remain, but they are all in a "delayed" state, meaning there's an issue that needs to be worked through (rejected address or courier issue). Gamesquest EU is working through those individual issues now. If we need information from you, we will reach out by email to help get the ball rolling on your package! They are also just beginning to ship out items with split shipping (see above). If you need assistance, please reach out to https://maestromedia.com/pages/contactus.

UK Fulfillment - We are down to just 250 orders remaining. All of these are held up for some reason or another. For the most part, Gamesquest is working through the issues individually and fixing them. They are also just beginning to work through split shipping items (see above). If we need information to get the ball rolling on your package, we will email you! If you need assistance, please reach out to https://maestromedia.com/pages/contactus.

Oceania Fulfillment - We are sorry for the further delay for the final 190 backers. The plan had been to start split shipping when we first mentioned it, but then we were told by the fulfillment center that the missing items were actually inbound imminently, so we agreed it likely made most sense to wait just a few more days and ship complete orders. Unfortunately, this estimate of a few days turned out to be off the mark, and the days stretched out with it being unclear if we should stick or twist. At this point, we’re going to twist - even if the missing items were to arrive at the warehouse tomorrow, we’re going to make the call to start split shipping so we can at least get the majority of the stuff out to you guys as we previously said. Again, we are sorry for the further delay - hopefully an explanation helps. Things should start moving soon now. If you need assistance, please reach out to https://maestromedia.com/pages/contactus.

Asia Fulfillment - We've seen games in the wild! Thank you to the folks who have posted on social media letting us know. We still have not received tracking from our partners at VFI to confirm how many have been fulfilled, but at least we know people are beginning to receive the games!

US Fulfillment - The US fulfillment center just missed the May 10th target, but the last full boxes shipped out today for Kickstarter backers! There are still pre-orders backers, folks who pre-ordered on Backerkit after the Kickstarter was over, that are waiting on packages, they are continuing to ship but were held up by a late shipment of retail games. Split shipping as needed has also commenced, in the US this can include foreign language games as we did not yet receive our full order. As with the other centers, there are a few hundred shipments (which is a lot but also a few hundred is like 0.5% of all US shipments) that have been rejected by the courier that we need to work through and late survey completions (as in after we said orders were locking for shipping) have not quite started going out yet. If we need more information from you to release a hold or a rejected package we will reach out! The plan is to start getting those orders out shortly. If you need assistance, please reach out to https://maestromedia.com/pages/contactus.

Rest of the World Fulfillment - Take a look at the EU fulfillment update above, we're getting close!

We'll see you next time!
