Multimorphic sent out a business update this week. They have had a lot of orders recently and are still trying to staff up to meet that demand. The lead time for new orders is still at 12 to 13 months before shipment. Even with all that, Multimorphic is devoted to continue to create new game kits and is in development of 2 full-featured kits for next year. They also expect to have some 3rd party games released next year.

Congratulations to Gerry Stellenberg on his expected baby coming soon!

Make sure to read the article over at Nudge to see what Rick thinks the tipping points are for great multiplier games.
