      Hello there HBS! I'm still going through my first run of Dragonfall but it's absolutely amazing so far. The only thing I believe is missing is dual-wielding, so before becoming a Mitch-hater, I think it should be included in an upcoming patch! :P
      Keep up the good work!

      Hoi Jamie!

      I suggest you contact the developers (HBS) via email at: info@hbs-studios.com and explain the situation. They'll have to confirm your Kickstarter pledge tier, and if they have physical Rewards still in stock, I'm sure they'll do what they can to hook you up. ^_^

      Hi there,

      Who do I talk to about getting my rewards for backing this kickstarter?

      I had originally asked this same question a few months ago and it turned out that kickstarter had the wrong email for me (It was linked to an email that I couldn't have registered with anyway since it had been shut down years ago). I talked to your customer support and they helped me get the email switched, confirmed it with me after I got new emails there, and then helped get a picture from me so I could get my ID card done (since I had been late submitting it due to my bad email).

      After that, I didn't hear anything, nor did I get a reply to my follow up. I'd really appreciate getting my t-shirt, ID card, and usb necklace, especailly given that the expansion is out (coming out)? >:(

      Thanks for whoever can help,

      -Jamie

      just finished dragonfall (didn't have the time yet to complete the first campaign). all i want to say is that beside some minor irritations (handling of loot and gear in the party), this game was all i wished for. i LOVED the characters and the subplots. pls just make more DLCs, especially ones where i can keep the team. man i love those guys. i don't want to lose them. and i want to build my character. he's got one essence left but i bet i could fit some alpha-ware in him if time and nuyen permit. keep up the good work guys and gals, AWESOME GAME!!!!!!!!

      @Xod: I investigated further. For me the game creates that folder every time it has a loading scene (and if I start character creation), but not when I use the save function.

      In all cases I have filed a bug report. So maybe this will get sorted out in a future version.

      I finished Dragonfall today and I must say, HBS really knocked it out of the park. It's probably the most satisfying gaming experience I've had in 10+ years. My hat is officially off. Great job HBS, I hope there are more runs to come!

      Creator Christian Steudtner on March 9

      @Xod:
      Since I believe DRM is just a bad way to tread paying customers I don't deal with Steam. So I can only comment on the Humble Bundle version.
      But I checked it once again. And in fact it does create a folder ~/Documents/Shadowrun Returns/ContentPacks which is rather strange. But it doesn't contain anything. [The first time I checked for it I assumed I did it as a folder for UGC, I didn't investigated further because you specified save data which is located in Saves not in ContentPacks]

      So yeah, that is definitely some kind of bug that should be fixed.

      You're doing it wrong !!! DLC is not supposed to be better than the original campaign !!! ;)

      So yeah, just finished Dragonfall and it was a blast, even better than the orignal campaign which I enjoyed as well.

      You guys totally delivered.

      It's not completely perfect mind you, riggers that can't repair drones sometimes (immune) is a big problem, but as they are autorepaired between missions reached the end anyway. Some other flaws but nothing significant.

      If you make another one of this scale and quality I will surely buy it right away.

      For now, thanks for giving us this great experience !

      @Christian Steudtner:
      Are you playing with the Humble Store or Steam version?
      I'm using the Steam version and I've just checked it again, it creates ~/Documents/Shadowrun Returns/ContentPacks/ whenever I save. The folder is actually empty, I guess the saves are burried in the Steam folder.

      Creator Christian Steudtner on March 8

      @Xod:
      I don't know where the problem is, but I can only say that my SRR saves the files into ~/.config/Harebrained Schemes/Shadowrun Returns/Saves. (I played the original SRR with Ubuntu and Dragonfall on Fedora.) So something isn't working right imo, but I certainly can't say what is the problem. But from what I see the intended place is inside ~/.config/ and somehow that doesn't work for you (and this might certainly be a bug I'm not affected by).

      Creator Adrian Mitchell on March 8

      Just finished Berlin. Great job on both campaigns and hoping you make more, I will buy them day 1.

    22. Ingseyfs0528.small

      Creator Datayum on March 8

      I'm playing to SRR on Linux for the first time and noticed the game creates its saves directory in ~/Documents/, which is not the right place – user directories shouldn't be cluttered with application created files. Could you please move it to ~/.config/ ? it's the current standard.

      PS: I'm liking Dragonfall a lot – the writing, the atmosphere...! It's a bit sad you called it a DLC though, it would have been nice to see the terms "expansion" or "add-on" come back. This full-fledged new campaign to an old-school RPG deserved it.

      PPS: The Dragonfall's Steam page misses the 32x32 icon left of the title.

    23. Am%c3%a9lyssane.small

      Creator Lost-brain -Obsidian Order Dark Goddess on March 8

      So, I just finish Dragonfall today, and I have to say that this expansion is pretty good, better than "dead's man twitch".
      You, guys at Harebrained Schemes, have listen what the backers and fans were saying, annd then improve your formula (17^^). that's great, and a sign that the future can be shiny for us all.
      Of course, Dragonfall is far from "perfection", but I'm satisfied with the progresses you make between DMS and DF.
      For thoses who have not finish DF, I warm you that the next part of the post will contain spoilers.
      So, it appears clear for me that the two last titles of the Mass Effect series have been a great influence for the campaign design of DF. Here, the Kreuzbazar replace the Normandy. That's cool, better than what we have in DMS. But to be honest, I don't have the sensation that my character evolve and live in a city.
      There is a cRPG who really give this impression, and I think you should play it to see what me (and probably many backers/customers) expect for a Shadowrun game : "Vampire The Mascarade : Bloodlines". All you have to see is this game : the sensation of really live in the city (you can travel between 4 hubs, who each leads to smaller zones), and missions and dialogues, and choices who are not so different compair to the SRR ones.
      Yes, I know, this game is a "first person cRPG", but I truly think It could have be done in isometric gameplay.
      Also, there is something really disappointing, is the lack of consequence in long term about certain choice. The best exemple is the sewers's ghouls. If you let them live in the sewers, it would be "normal" to have them help you when Audran's team place bombs in theses sewers. But no, nothing change in this scene whatever you do with the ghouls. This kind of thing is really disappointing.
      It's the same about the Apex fight. Whatever you choose to kill or free him, it's the same fight after your choice...

      So, I have to conclude : DragonFall is great, really better than DMS, but it still needs many improvements before becoming is really good cRPG. But you convince mee that you can deliver this kind of game, so I will continue to support you an future Shadow run Add-ons. Maybe you will use kickstarter again to fund next SRR's expansions ?

      Creator Christian Steudtner on March 5

      @Valery:
      I don't know about GOG, but I was able to download 1.2.3 a few hours ago from my Humble Bundle Library. So it seems that the DRM-free version is updated soonishly, too. [I'm not sure what for timezones is involved, but on my Humble Bundle library it says that Dragonfall was updated 2014-03-05 at 01:05 and Shadowrun Returns anhour later. I cannot say more than that it uses a 24h clock format and that I'm in CET / UTC+1]

      @HaruhiFollower:
      I'm mot sure from, but from my experience info@hbs-studios.com is quite responsive. I have contacted HBS four times and got an answers in average < 2 days. [I don't factor in the one message that probably felt through the cracks, after two weeks I contacted them again and got answer the day after it]. I requested my Humble Bundle Key on the 25th and received them two days later. So I personally would wait a few days more and try it again.

      @HBS:
      I really did enjoy playing Dragonfall :). I really like the other characters and how they react to what I said. I probably will do a replay some day in the future to see how much the reactions differ if I play a much different character. [DMS was nice to play, but I must say Dragonfall was imo much better! Also I hadn't the the feeling that it is too short, which I had after DMS]. I can honestly say that I would quite likely follow further releases down the road ;)

      Hello!
      Do you happen to know how long is the wait time on info@hbs-studios.com e-mails? I sent a message requesting GOG keys on the 22nd (so effectively on the 24th...) and another one on 26th because I didn't get the Steam key for Dragonfall. I'm just trying to figure out whether my e-mails are in some kind of a queue or something else (e-mail address getting garbled...) is happening.

      Hello, HBS!
      Can you reveal approximate update time on Humble Store?
      Or 1.2.3 is just minor Steam-only update?

      “In many ways, Dragonfall is a more complete and sophisticated version of last year’s Shadowrun Returns. The new campaign setting is utterly compelling, the writing is some of the industry’s finest with astounding prose and character development and the added content simply equates to an experience that is only rivaled by the genre’s best.”

      Creator Jeremie on March 3

      So I finished dragonfall in hard mode. Overall impression is good but I think some points could be improved :
      - Music : some scene could use some more dramatic, intense or scary one. I dont know the cost of Two Steps From Hell licensing, but this kind of music
      - More consequences of player's choices. Maybe I missed them, but I would expect something like "If you bring back the MKVI prototype then you could face it in two or three runs" or "Publication of Formula 17 lead to the deadh of one of your team members". Possibly with some evidences of the consequences of some actions.
      - I am a completionist. I'd like to have some 'side mission' over the character. Like helping Glory with the kids or have a love story with Eider.
      - It would be cool to have a kind of automatic generated mission with a quite simple and repetitive objective. Like fighting for drug control (or cleaning areas). Bonus points if it unlocks some weapons or additional content.
      - Sometimes I'd like more indications on the way to upgrade your character or to build your team. This is painful to realize that some etiquettes are almost useless. Maybe I missed some of them (english is not my first language and some side notes are not easy to read).

      Well was very proud but like somebody said on the steam forum , the second date left a lot to be desired .

      While shadowrun returns and dragonfall together in final judgement and conclusion is indeed a very succesfull kickstarter project . Sadly no new innovations aside from graphical update did left me dissapointed .

      now if I would imagine I have no knowledge at all of technical side , is this product worth the cost and backing , definetly . That I do not regret , I hope I am wrong and HBS upgrade the product futher , but my current assumption is that innovation has ended .

      especially with the advertisement about control a party , I expected more , the MKVI for somebody who got there IP license "stolen" .
      I do hope you guys did contact the creator of those mods . If so my sincer apology for my assumption

      Well story in dragonfall was excellent , bugs was to be expected sadly launch wasn't as smooth as DMS , especially with continous exit the game . every 1 hour play trough , to avoid the graphic glitches . But all in all , if there wasn't a advertisement about party , I think I would have loved the conclusion of this product . even if it is a milk DLC of very high story quality content .

      Am biased at the moment if I would back another kickstarter for DLC content , but would I purchase the next DLC I definetly would . the one after is another question .

      Fine am scrapping the party issue from my list and yeah this product is definetly a 8/10 , a 9 for staying within budget and speedy delivery . Couple minus points for not able to deliver the doc wagon promise , and other small issue .

      But would definetly buy the next DLC if released .

      ergh... okay, if you're in the middle of DMS when you upgrade the program + DF, it gets seriously fraked up. everything my decker had for mission items went missing, and when marie-louise went to jack in at the UB basement, the whole thing went pear-shaped. probably not a big deal, i'm just going to start over and finish this campaign before moving on to DF.
