Hey Backers!

We’re overdue for an update and have lots of exciting news, so let’s get to it!

First up, Dioramas!

Check out some of the images of the fantastic prototype diorama and packaging! Panda Mfg did a great job and after some final tweaks we will be approving them for manufacturing. After that it takes a couple of months to do mass production and ship them back to us for distribution. So while there is still some time before these arrive at your homes, we can’t be more excited to see progress!

Missed the Kickstarter campaign and want to purchase a diorama? We will be selling some of these limited edition dioramas online after we ship to our backers.

Art Book and Prints 

We have manufactured the prints and now just need to have Chris sign them and we can begin distributing. That will be done soon.

Art book creation is progressing and we will finish it up after we ship The Crimson Court DLC. (See below.)

Steam Workshop Support! 

Last month we released our official integration of Steam Workshop! We’ve always wanted to support mods for Darkest Dungeon, and going back to the Kickstarter we listed it as a stretch goal. Though at the time we didn’t reach that level of funding, due to our success through Early Access, we decided to fully incorporate Workshop after release. Last month marked the beginning of that support, and we cannot be more excited to see what our players come up with!

Check out the Workshop page!  

Crimson Court 

A few weeks back, we started the slow trickle of information about the upcoming DLC. The small blog post earlier last month that gave a high level look at the expansion’s scope, but if in case you missed it, here’s the link.

We did an article for Game Informer and that coverage should be live later today for subscribers and will be printed in their magazine next week. In that article we give the first glimpses of some new enemies and The Courtyard dungeon region - so keep your eyes out for that.

Most recently, the Crimson Court DLC page on Steam has gone live! You can now add it your Steam wishlist and receive future notifications for when it goes on sale!

That’s all for now! We will post another update once we get some more details on the Art Book and prints, as well as a release date and price for the Crimson Court. For now, happy hunting and keep your torch bright!

Signed Backer Prints are off to the printers! Finalize your shipping address!

Seasons Greetings and Backer Reward Update!

Happy Holidays, Backers!

With the end of the year fast approaching, and the Holidays already in swing, we wanted to give an update to what’s going on with the Darkest Dungeon Backer Rewards!

Backer Exclusive Art Print

We’ve partnered with Fangamer for this print and we have sent off the assets for production. We are excited to work with Fangamer as they have produced many amazing prints and we know that you all will be happy with the production quality. Once they are printed they will ship them to Chris to get hand signed, and he’ll ship them back and Fangamer will then help us mail them to you!

We will be posting updates on production of these as we hit each step, it will be important for you all to update your shipping info on your Backerkit profile. We will send out a notice to let you know when we will be locking in shipping info - so do us a favor and update it now if needed!

Our goal is to get these out as soon as they are produced, which could mean before the end of the year! Merry Christmas!

Art Book

Chris has sent all the assets to the graphic designer who is now working hard on getting our art book put together. We know how excited people are for this particular reward so we wanted to make sure we captured as much of the game’s artwork as possible. It’s also something we want to be really special so this is going to take a little extra time. The book measures 10x10 inches and will be approximately 60 pages of never before seen sketches, rough work, commentary and (of course) final in-game and promotional artwork!

We expect this to be completed and shipped in Q1 of next year as with the Holidays already upon us, it won’t see printing until after the New Year.

As a special thank-you, we’ve decided that *all* our backers are going to receive a digital “Art of the Crimson Court DLC” pdf mini art book after the DLC ships next year!

Dioramas

Now that we’ve decided on the numbers and assets, the final content will be assembled with the help of a graphic designer and then sent to Panda Game Manufacturing for printing. We are also excited to work with Panda! They are well known and make beautiful products. We plan on making the dioramas out of high quality chipboard, so they will feel like good sturdy components that you see in many boardgames.

Manufacturing these will take a couple months, but we figure that high quality is the most important objective.

What if I missed out on buying some of these rewards?

We will be printing extras of the Art Books and Dioramas for you to buy, although the original backers will be getting the best deals on them and also some special content.

The backer-exclusive signed art prints, however, are exclusive to those who pledged for them back during the campaign.

That being said, we plan to print other, non-exclusive art prints for people to purchase!

That’s all for now

2016 has been an incredible year for our game, and our community. With these last rewards on the horizon, as well as Mod Support and our first DLC expansion “The Crimson Court”, 2017 is shaping up to be just as exciting!

We are enjoying the process of getting the physical merch together and we have been thinking about other potential products that could help celebrate Darkest Dungeon.

We cannot thank you enough for making all of this possible. You can look forward to more updates as we move these items through the production cycle.

Happy Holidays,

Red Hook Studios
