Did we ever get a final number of how many physical copies of the game will be produced?
I am glad to hear that you are nearing the end of the long ardous journey to get a true Toe Jam and Earl experience into the hands of your fans. I also have to ask a few questions though. I have noticed through the last few updates a lot of Nintendo Switch mention and not so much the other guys. This was originally expected to release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One? I think? It's great that you are able to release on another platform more money for the developers work and more fans get to play the game. I can't help but wonder however if releasing on switch is why most of these recent delays have happened. Nintendo is known for (and Sony and Microsoft do it too but Nintendo has it down to an artform) expecting a simultaneous release for their system no matter how far along other previous versions are to releasing.
Which means if the PC version is 80% complete and the PS4 and Xbox versions are 60% and the Switch version is 25% complete Nintendo REALLY wants you to wait to release until their version is ready to go at the same time. I don't know if this is the case with your particular instance but if it is I would really appreciate transparency regarding this. Businesses are businesses and publishers have their requests/demands so if this is what happened then it happened. But if it did we deserve to know exactly to what extent Nintendo Switch announcement had on the delay of the other versions.
I could be completely wrong I just have seen previous instances where this is the case. I could even be wrong about which company is asking for what delay. It could be any of those major companies expecting/demanding simultaneous releases it could just as easily be none of them. All we ask is that you tell us. This update shows that the Nintendo update is close to going gold and that the other systems aren't that far behind. How is that possible when the PC version started before any of them? I don't mean to be a grouch I am just eager to get my hands on the game you guys have been working so hard on.

I'd be more than happy to pay to switch to the PS4 version!
Whether you allow swap or not, I will be purchasing a PS4 port as well to support you guys.
please let us pay an update fee to get switched to Switch!
Excellent news! Thanks for the update! I am glad you are going back to self-publishing.
Are y'all going to have a release party in the Bay? That'd be cool :)
Thank you much for the update! I'd much much much rather have a good game later than a bad game earlier. I read some suggestions of swap fees...I mean, honestly, if I can buy the Switch version for the same price as what I paid for the PC one, that'd be cool with me! Or a swap fee is cool too.
I'm also happy to pay a fee to swap to a console version of the game.
I only backed a low tier ($15), so no need to make a loss on me. A swap fee is reasonable.
Although I can imagine that the higher tiers may get a free swap.
You have a strangeneral obsession with pudding...
That being said I REALLY hope something can be done about swapping for consoles, I'm big into consoles and game with my daily and HATE using my computer to game.
Well done for getting this far!!! I am super excited to see what you guys have come up with!! <3 As a lot of others are saying (I have 2 copies of the game coming my way on completion) if I need to pay a little extra to swap for a console version of my wishes for one of those copies, I’ll happily oblige. But mainly came here to shout out my support of your work! It’s great to hear that we’re so close to seeing it release and that it will be a quality work too! (Not always something that happens these days). Just happy to be a part of it, and proud to be a backer! And you guys, should be proud too! Cheers and bravo!!
YAYYYYYY! Super excited y'all!
As someone that no longer has a capable computer to run games, I'd love to get this on the Xbox instead. Please? Please! Please please please.
Also would be happy to pay a fee to go to Switch =) Though, I think I will want it on PC and Switch!
Add me to the people who will be willing to pay the fee so I can play on the Switch. I'll be willing to do that!
You guys are awesome! Keep pluggin away! Can't wait to play this!
Great news! Very happy with everything. Can't wait for the beta! :D
|Go TJ&E, go!!!!!!!!!!!|

Thanks for the update! Looking forward to playing the beta!
I would prefer to get a Switch copy of the game, and totally fine with paying a little extra to get the version I'd like! Keep up the good work guys!
Yes! Thanks guys, this was a MUCH needed update! Can't wait for this game to come out!
Regarding console swap, a lot of us have several copies of the game included in our tiers. I'd be content if just one of those copies was for a console. Also... I remember way, way back during the campaign there was talk of no drm. Is that still true?
Discord link is expired? Is this going to be updated?
I'm sure this has been said before on here, but I'd been waiting more than 20 years for a follow-up to the original TJ&E when this was announced. A couple more weeks/months is nothing. Thanks for the updates and the beta!
The issue with Sony EU also exists with MS EU.
The 8bit bloodstained got delayed for this reason
Great to get news. I’ve not been following all the updates, so apologies if this has been extensively discussed, but is there still going to be a Mac version released?
Definitely agree that I’d be more than happy to pay an additional fee to switch to a console version. My wife and I bought the original TJ&E when it was released, and it’s still one of our favorite multiplayer games of all time (neck and neck with Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One). Looking forward to its imminent release!
Well this is a turn-up for the funk!
Can I please just ask you to be aware of Sony Europe and it's classification system, a few games I've backed have yet to make a EU release due the language requirements (I think). The Night Trap remaster is one of the biggest still not released here. Also I know Double Fine have had issues with some of their games in the past, Costume Quest 2 for example faced a huge EU delay only on PlayStation. So there is something decidedly un-funky going on with PS Europe.
Happy to hear it and can't wait to see the release! Sorry ot didnt work out with ASG but I'm sure things will look even better for y'all in the future!
I'm very happy with this update. I'm glad you upheld your backer promise of beta play for the 60 n up backers. I can't wait to play!
I'm skeptical that this will be released in 2018. I've heard there are a lot of hurdles with consoles especially - such as passing certification, getting an age rating from different bodies across regions etc. I'm just guessing, but would have thought they processes would take a few months. Have you factored this into your estimate?
I happily pay to swap to an Xbox version of the game
Thank you for the update guys. This is all fantastic news. I am sure this game is going to be wonderful and can't wait to get to that beta!
So excited. I would be happy to pay the fee for the switch. Either way I am getting it for my Nintendo Switch.
!!!! So happy that we'll get a chance to play early, but especially that it's coming out this Fall!! My sister and I have been waiting to play this together. Thanks to Greg, Humannature Studios, Adult Swim, and my fellow backers!
Agree - I would be willing to pay (a reasonable amount) to get the Switch version instead
I second that.
If there's a fee to get the console version, I"d be happy to pay that for that sweet sweet couch co-op on the switch.
