      Humble Bundle is real bad at sending me emails for some reason. But if you log into your account, you can go through menus until you can accept your purchase and then you get the choice and your key.

    3. Megan Hogben on

      Exciting! Will we get the steam key online if we've pledged?

      For those complaining about how long this game took: it is not the developers fault! Im sure you can attribute some duration to them, but there was a huge legal fiasco behind the scenes that I won't go into, but its the same fiasco that caused Homestuck to take at least a year longer to complete than it should have! I for one am just glad that they were able to make it to this point, so Congratulations!

      100%....... hype! Seriously though, please don't miss this release date.

      First, congrats on actually making it this far despite the struggles. However, I do hope those of us who pledged enough will get Steam Keys. My pledge included a physical game as well. Since this game is episodic, is the plan to send those once the whole thing is complete? At any rate, some confirmation would be much appreciated, I know I'm not the only one who dropped a lot of money into this.

      My god! I'd forgotten this even existed. If this isn't good I'll....probably grumble a bit then carry on with my life

      Here's hoping Acts 2 and on don't take as long as 1 did...

      ahhh!!! of course i'm happy that i'll be able to play the game soon after all the waiting, but everyone on the team must be so proud and relieved to finally have gotten this far after all the development setbacks...!! thank you all for never giving up!

      Tbh I probably won't believe it until I've actually beaten Act One and can confirm it's not just a scam, at this point.

      It's been 84 years.... but it's been totally worth the wait! The art, music, animation all looks so beautiful and I'm just amazed at everyone's dedication to this game despite everything that has happened. Can't wait to play!!

    19. Bob on

      I can't believe how gorgeous this game is! The art, animation, the detail, everything is so beautiful!

      I'm in love.

    20. Callie Housley on

      Fantastic! Will we also be getting steam codes for the game by email on launch day?

    21. Stephanie Rainey on

      I hope there's actually a stable build this time and this isn't a repeat of the January release date. :(

      I'm a little sad of how this game turned out to look for such amount of money, but I guess that's not up to me. perhaps it's too long and that's why it turn out to be so expensive/delayed?

      I am excited to play it nevertheless since it's a Homestuck game and pretty sure the story will be great.

      Congratulations for a release date!

      Can't believe this is actually happening
      I'm not psyched anymore, of course
      But I have to give you props for the longest delayed Kickstarter I backed/seen backed that actually got through
      seriously I got engaged and married changed two jobs in the time you did this
      The trailer looks great
