      Thanks Dave! We'll have more updates on that and the expansion soon! You guys are the best!

      Copper Dreams sounds great. If there is to be a Kickstarter I'll back

    4. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on August 16, 2015

      @Lost-brain Thanks so much! Glad to hear you're enjoying the mechanics!

    5. Lost-brain -Obsidian Order Dark Goddess on August 12, 2015

      So, I'm late, but I just begin the game today^^
      Juste wanted to say : "Thank you, that's ererything that I wanted to have !"
      To be honest, I never was a fan of this kind of pixel art graphism -but I also know that's your à Team of two people-, but the gameplay, the mechanics... They're great, simply great.
      I heard you want to work on a cyberpunk cRPG after you finish the expansion ? Can't wait for that !

    6. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on June 22, 2015

      Just wanted everyone who pledged for the art book tier(+) to check their emails! Details with where to download included for all your art and making-of perusal pleasure.

    7. Torment- The Enduring Exile on May 29, 2015

      @Whalenought I got the electronic version in e-mail. Just checked. Thanks for the quick response.

      Sorry, got the keys yesterday but I only posted today because I was playing it. XD

    9. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on May 29, 2015

      @Torment The art book is coming next week. We wanted to be add some post release information in it. We'll have an update when it's ready!

      The handbooks were attached to the emails we sent yesterday containing your key. We just verified that your email had a handbook attached, but if for some reason you didn't get it, we'd be happy to resend it to you.

      Thanks!
      Hannah

    10. Torment- The Enduring Exile on May 29, 2015

      @Whalenought, are the digital rewards (handbook, art book etc.) still pending? The Steam version does not come with those.

    11. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on May 29, 2015

      @N.A.Jones: Absolutely, we'll be working on that this week. We'll announce it on our forum when it's available

    12. Nick J. on May 29, 2015

      By any chance will there be a downloadable pdf of the manual at some point?

    13. Gonchi on May 28, 2015

      Just got the e-mail with my GOG key. Congrats on finishing the game and, also, good job on putting out a demo.

    14. Resonant Drifter on May 28, 2015

      Thanks, Hannah!

      I just got my email and I'm downloading the game now!

    15. Luke Cartner on May 28, 2015

      Thanks for the update, I figured you'd be hard at it. Ofcourse there was that nagging worry that somehow I'd been missed..
      Thank for all your hard work

    16. Laird Barron on May 28, 2015

      Thank you for the update, Hannah.

    17. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on May 28, 2015

      I'm so sorry you haven't gotten your email yet, we've been working through the list since last night and should be finished in a few more hours, so expect it soon!

      Thanks for bearing with us, we appreciate all of your support so far and are working as hard as we can to get your rewards to you.

      Best,
      Hannah

      Hello!

      It's a bit after 6pm where I live and I was wondering when the backers were going to start receiving those emails? I see it's available to download on Gog.com and Steam already. As Laird said, it would have been favorable as backers to get the game first.

      Thanks! Hope all is well.

    19. Luke Cartner on May 28, 2015

      Adding my voice to the group of confused commenters..
      How and when do I get my game?

    20. Laird Barron on May 28, 2015

      No disrespect, but I could've simply waited for release and downloaded already. Backers should receive priority.

    21. Nick J. on May 28, 2015

      Great. Thanks for the heads up

    22. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on May 28, 2015

      @NAJones We'll be sending them out via email throughout the day.

    23. Nick J. on May 28, 2015

      Question for the creators: Perhaps it was said in a previous update or in the comments below, but I assume Steam keys will be sent out via e-mail, or do I need to go your website and follow some other steps?

      Thanks!

    24. Torment- The Enduring Exile on May 6, 2015

      @Tet Yoon Lee We're just giving out one copy of the game, Steam or DRM-free. If for some reason you want the distributor version it's the exact same as the DRM-free version.

    26. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on April 30, 2015

      @Torment Thank you! And we appreciated all of your beta testing early on, it was a huge help!

    27. Tet Yoon Lee on April 29, 2015

      I just answered the survey.

      Are people who choose the Steam key not going to be given the option for DRM free via the WhaleNought site? Personally I prefer it when I get both the DRM free and Steam key. Steam is generally easy to use and keep updated and also a centralised place for achievements (I'm not sure of Staglands is going to have them, but generally) so I use it most of the time. However I do like to have the DRM free option, so I don't have to worry what happens if Steam decided to do something stupid in future or fluff around with offline mode etc if I'm going to be without internet connection for a while. It's also nice to be able to have a copy which isn't beholden to anyone else.

      There is a small risk of abuse (people using the DRM free and selling the Steam key or whatever) when you provide both a DRM free and Steam key, but many things to it nowadays, and there can't be that many of the 1000 or so backers who'd abuse it. Of course it'll be cool to get both a GOG (presuming you get on) and Steam key as well and some people have done that, but that's a bit less common and also depends whether GOG is willing to let all backers have keys.

      If you aren't going to provide both DRM free and Steam, will the Steam release at least be without DRM enabled?

    28. Torment- The Enduring Exile on April 28, 2015

      I've been so busy with work and the realization that have so much time to devote to one game that I kinda dropped out of the beta.

      Younger generation please keep plugging away at it! I remember when I had the energy to edit the save game in hexadecimal if I really couldn't pass some point.

      Joe and Hannah, you did two awesome things. Create a CRPG, and lived to release it. No matter what happens after you put it out just remember you guys did it and most people would never dream at the chance.

      Good luck.

      Beta 2.01 is up! V-Sync options and Spell hotkeys are some updates to note.

      Download instructions in the last email if you missed it, otherwise Windows can just be opened and patched.

      Hello backers! Beta 2.0 is now available — we'll have more info, a trailer, and begin some play throughs of that in the near future with a KS update.

    35. Dave, Shadowrunner on February 2, 2015

      Looking forward to this. Based on what I've seen, I think I'm actually more excited about SitS than PoE.

    36. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on January 21, 2015

      @jaroslav Yes, we're still in beta phase, I'm sorry if there was any confusion! We'll definitely announce the release here and via email, but before that you'll also receive an email verifying your reward and linking you to the page where you can download the game on release.

    37. Jaroslav Bálik on January 21, 2015

      Is game stiil in beta phase? I've bought an early adopter version for $15 and I wonder whether I didn't miss some annoncement. If you are still testing, don't hurry please, and repair as many bugs as possible.

    38. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on January 5, 2015

      Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know we'll be aggregating news shout outs and any sub-Kickstarter Updates in the Announcements section on our website:

      http://serpentinthestaglands.com

      Notably we were recently on PC Gamer's Guide to 2015:
      http://www.pcgamer.com/best-pc-games-2015/#page-5

      And mentioned in a wonderful article hosted on PC Gamer by Peter "Durante" Thoman about the CRPG Renaissance:
      http://www.pcgamer.com//2014-the-first-year-of-the-crpg-renaissance/

      That name wouldn't exist in those articles without the financial support of you backers, so cheers to you all.

    39. Torment- The Enduring Exile on October 13, 2014

      The beta is looking really good despite the bugs we're reporting. I think backers will be very happy with this once its released.

      Andrey on September 29, 2014

      Great news!
      Looking forward to the beta, everything looks very nice so far.
      Haven't even expected for beta to come so soon.
      I really hope that my schedule will allow me to give the beta a good thorough test)))

      Great job, keep it up guys!

    41. Whalenought Studios 2-time creator on September 28, 2014

      @ Torment: We're excited to be getting the beta details finalized, which we're shooting for next weekend for release. We'll be doing a Kickstarter Update for applicable backers at that time. The Grade 1 Skills & Spells will be available for testing at the start, and we'll be doing Grade 2 a bit later on as we implement them.

      We have the forum ready to go to:
