As you know, Hired Sword 2 for the Commodore 64 will be released tomorrow (April 3rd)!
While we were able to continue with the production of the boxed editon slightly ahead of time, one last element included with it, the cloth map, has taken more time than usual to be made due to the global world situation.
We waited until the last minute, hoping to find a solution but yesterday, we received bad news: our sole provider for the cloth map is closed until further notice as it’s a “non-essential business”. The maps have already been printed on cloth but not yet hemmed, as we had requested, to give them a nice finish.
After much consideration, we decided to go ahead with shipment without the cloth map. Even though it’s a financial risk for us, rest assured that the map will be sent to you as soon as we receive them. At this time, we are unable to give you an estimate of when this will be as the future is uncertain.
We also wanted to mention that shipping could take longer than usual as postal services are slowed down around the world.
We hope you will enjoy the game despite the situation. Don’t forget to return to the website to give it a quick review on the product page, it helps us a lot!
Thanks a bunch for your understanding, patience and support!

Thank you for the information! I look forward to the game, with or without cloth map. Have a nice day and stay healthy.
Any chances for the finished boxed edition with cloth map to get more stock again? I wanted to order that sweetness just now and it’s out of stock at the moment ^^’.
Yes, there will be another batch hopefully before the end of the year. Make sure to follow our socials to know when it happens!
