After missing the launch, and several delays, the publisher, iam8bit, has an update:

This in on iam8bit, but still ridiculous.

Just like they keep delaying the REZ Infinite copies... it's a shit show, I won't be doing business with them again.

Yeah.

Unfortunately this is how iam8bit operates. You order something, they never ship it to anyone, they never tell you anything, they won't let you cancel your order.

At least you got an estimated ship date. Mine doesn't even have an estimated date yet. Biggest buying regret ever.

The fact that you cannot cancel orders is extremely telling.

They get you excited with the prospect of a physical game you wouldn't otherwise be able to get, and then shit on you.

The estimated ship date keeps getting pushed back, so why would anyone believe it?

Yet another reason not to trust Iam8bit with anything.

I came so close to ordering just the game-only version of Rez from them, but after reading a whole bunch of bad customer experiences from folks on here, I thought better of it and will continue to do so.

I wonder if anyone waiting has been on a media blackout this whole time...

I've been pretty bummed with iam8bit's production. Rez Infinite's expected to ship sometime in December, so I ended up buying a digital copy. God only knows when the record will ship either.

The two things I've bought from them were both delayed months : The wait for my Journey (game) album was painful.

Not a fan of iam8bit, this seems to be normal for them.

Yeah, iam8bit gets shit on regularly in the VGM Vinyl thread for this exact reason: delays, extremely high prices, not allowing item cancellations...

The sad thing is that their end products are high quality: I bought the Battletoads and Perfect Dark sountracks on vinyl, and were really impressed with both packages.

It's a shame they can't get their act together. All the issues I listed above have plagued multiple releases from them, so it's safe to say I'm done with the company.

The box's only contents is a receipt for another Collector's Edition to be delivered the following month.

Wow what a delay. Surely people are cancelling at the price they are charging, hard to imagine that many people still happy at paying $200 for a CE for this game. Especially since the spaceships are all identical in the game apart from look and the inventory slot count

Dispute the charge with your credit card provider if they haven't shipped and you don't want it

Still waiting on my Undertale vinyl from them. Technically not late but man are they bad at communicating.

Hello Games forced them to delay shipping so they can ship it with the real game patched in, confirmation the mega patch they're working on is coming in December. It's happening people! Sean Murray hasn't abandoned us.
