Kickstarter Sept 2022 Update

Hello Backers,

Get ready! There’s a lot to share in this month’s update. In this update, we cover:

  • Shipping Update
  • Bundles
  • Driver Updates
  • New and upcoming games
  • Events
  • Other news

Let's get started!

Shipping update

As of September 1, 2022, all backers should have received an email from orders@tiltfive.com with a delivery estimate asking to confirm their address. If this email didn’t make it to your inbox or you’re not sure when you’ll receive your system, please email support@tiltfive.com so we can process your order and add you to the shipping queue.

If we have not processed your order yet, we expect to ship your order in mid-October to mid-November at the latest. We'll try to ship it out sooner if possible and appreciate your patience!

Roughly 80% of backers have already received their systems or will soon. If you’ve replied to our address confirmation email here’s an updated shipping estimate of when you can expect your system:

  • XE Gray and Black systems: Shipping in progress
  • XE Group Packs: Shipping in progress for the Early Bird and June Groups. The July and August Groups will start shipping through late October.
  • XE White systems: Ready to ship now

Please note: that the gray and black color Tilt Five glasses and wands are Kickstarter exclusives and we are only producing limited quantities of these colors.

If you backed one of these colors and we have not processed your order yet, you need to contact us before September 30th so we can manufacture a colored set of glasses and wand for you.

If your order is processed after September 30th, we’ll do our best to fulfill your order with your chosen color preference while supplies last, but some of you will receive white color glasses and wands if stock is not available. Thanks for your understanding on this and we look forward to delivering everyone’s systems soon!

Bundles Now Available!

At Tilt Five, our goal is to bring friends and family together and that means having more glasses and wands available to play with around the gameboard. And thanks to increased manufacturing capabilities we're now finally able to offer bundles.

Pre-orders for the 2 Pack and 3 Pack are available today. Get your $5 USD deposit down and secure your space in the future of gaming.

Bundles are available HERE

(We are not currently selling individual pieces of hardware (Ex. glasses, wands, etc.)


Driver/Software updates

We spent a lot of time on the 1.2 driver releases, improving the user experience and significantly reducing latency. If you haven’t updated to version 1.2.1 you can grab it from our Downloads page. And there is even more excitement coming with the upcoming 1.3 release.

Is one wand not enough for your game? SDK and driver support for simultaneous dual wand use is coming in 1.3!

For those developers who want direct access to the low-level code for special content or game engine integrations, the Native Development Kit for Windows will be joined by our Android NDK and Linux NDK betas, expanding the number of platforms supported by Tilt Five.

EVENTS

The Tilt Five team has been operating at full speed doing events such as Gamescom in Germany and Adam Savage's SiliCon in California. Let's take a look at some highlights from each event.

Gamescom 2022

Gamescom, It’s one of the largest video game trade shows in the world and last month Jeri and Steph hopped on planes, trains, and automobiles and made their way to Germany.  There were over 265,000 attendees from more than 100 countries, and whether attendees knew about Tilt Five before the event or discovered it on the showroom floor, demos and meetings were non--stop! It was also where we unveiled the trailer for CATAN: Tilt Five AR. Watch it below or read about it HERE.

SiliCon

We love the comic book and fan conventions, so we were super excited to attend SiliCon with Adam Savage on August 27 & 28, at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.
SiliCon was founded by famed tech entrepreneurs Steve Wozniak and Rick White to bring together the best of technology and pop culture. The show was renamed when Adam Savage joined the team in 2020 and attracts about 60,000 people each year.

   Take a look at the video below!


Mixcast

Augmented Reality experiences are notoriously difficult to share and communicate outside of the headset. MixCast solves that problem by helping people showcase experiences from inside AR with mixed reality. Since the launch of Tilt Five integration with Mixcast we have been able to showcase Tilt Five in a brand new way, not just that, we now have users streaming live content on the TiltFive.

Last month we partnered with Ewan Rose, a VR artist based out of the AR House, an immersive incubator based in California. He has been streaming his work with FigminXR and Tilt Five on Twitch using the MixCast software. We recently spoke with Ewan about his Tilt Five/FigminXR/MixCast pipeline for streaming. Check out the talk below.


(Mixcast is free to download and use with multiple tiers depending on your needs (watermark removal,1080p, etc.)  You can find out more about Mixcast by visiting their website.)
