Fantastic work, guys. Looking forward to a beautiful boxed copy!
Is the WII U version still happening?
Is there any good reason, besides incompetence, why the boxed edition has not been produced yet? Or atleast some update posted about it? The box itself should have been already produced months ago.
You've had 5! months to produce it since the last update, I have a reasonable suspicion that nothing is being produced at all.
I had a lot of respect for the Dietz/Schofield/Tennapel for their past works, but my patience is wearing thin...
News about the boxed copy of the game, please?
www.armikrog.com still down…
Yep I got the download sometime ago. Make sure to check your Humble account, and If it's not there, you should send Pencil Test a PM or email.
Looks like their email is: email@example.com
Hi, I still haven't received any download link or anything for backup up this game. Did any of you receive the digital copy of the game?
Hey guys, maybe the Wii U will still be sold in stores for $50 by the time the console version comes out. Nintendo will be retiring it in favor of the NX. I'd still like to play the game someday.
www.armikrog.com website is down. Is it ever coming back?
Still waiting on the boxed set...
It's almost 2 years past the delivery date and I've seen no mention of this boxed set or physical soundtrack CD since. I'm concerned. Please help. Does anyone with Armikrog/Pencil Test ever read these comments or reply?
Where can I find the humble bundle page to get my digital copy?
Really want to play the game - need a hard copy!
Still don't have my digital copy. Should be easy to fulfill that reward since the game is available for sale as a download right?
Will this ever be available in 16:10 aspect ratio, or at least 16:9 letterbox? I've been unable to play this game on my home pc because of this so very elemental issue.
Its safe to say these guys will never make another game. The Kickstarter community wants nothing to do with them after this mess. Old Neverhood fans like me what NOTHING to do with them after the disgusting piece of shit they released.
This project is defined by whats NOT been done. Things missing:
Quality sound work
Decent control scheme
Ability to make an adventure game worthy of its legacy.
This is literally the only Kickstarter project I regret backing. Piss poor game, from a piss poor team.
Everyone, they are working on the physical rewards and an update should be coming out soon. I saw it on their Armikrog Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/armikrog/…
@eXoScoriae - I'd like to be able to hit that little check mark off and know that one more ill advised kickstarter project is off my list.
I haven't been active in Kickstarter now because of this. I'm aware of it's not a sure promise to deliver goods however updating us is for free (less internet fees of course).
I'm with StueyG. What's the status on the boxed edition. We are going on 8 months of "updates" since the game released. A game which was incredibly short on story and puzzles.
I'd like to be able to hit that little check mark off and know that one more ill advised kickstarter project is off my list.
Looking back on it, I'm laughing at the "Terry Taylor Soundtrack" now. I remember one song in the whole game, and it was the backers song. The rest was, what seems to have been, a bunch of 15-30 second loops.
Still waiting on physical copies and goodies and also Wii edition. Any updates? What's going on here?
Humble Bundle resender worked for me. I can play now!
Hi, I am looking for a way to download the game.
The game is available to purchase from steam. How can get a code to I activate it?
@Tue - I know how Kickstarter works. Most reputable Kickstarters offer refunds when things are this late. With the lack of updates, I'm unconvinced that this is a "best effort", especially now that the game system I pledged to may not even be supported by the time this actually comes out. The reputation of everyone involved kinda relies on this being handled fairly.
With Wii U support likely ending around March 2017, I'm left wondering if this game will actually make the Wii U release I paid for or not.
Hi guys, I emailed you about getting a download/humble link for the game download, and you told me to post here. Could you please organise this - I'm looking forward to finally playing the game!
@Collin David - Kickstarter isn´t a shop, it is an investment in a possible product. As such there is no guarantee the stuff you put money into will be fulfilled, though the people behind have to do their best to do so.
I do have to agree though, this silence is a bit too much atm.
Yes a update on our rewards would be nice guys :) i want to play my wii u version.
Any word on how we can just get a straight refund for undelivered stuff at this point?
Seriously guys what's going on. Update please.
Pencil test studio....big let down.
Wheres my Physical copy.
Still don't have any digital rewards :-(
Any update on the Wii U version? I feel like the next Nintendo console will be out before this game is released on the Wii U. This is now officially my oldest Kickstarter campaign that has not been delivered, and that's really saying something!
I've never gotten my game... so disappointed in how much we were promised, then the delays and now the absolute lack of updates. Fail.
@people looking for sketches - Check out the FB page for this game / EWJ / Doug. He's posting updates there - getting his kids to help him with the sketches and stuff, very recently.
So, how hard is it to actually send out the boxed copies? It's been a few years now, guys, and it looks like no one is even responding anymore. I paid $125 for a too-short, buggy game.
Any news on the physical sketches please guys?
Hi, I haven't received any information on how to claim my download of the game or any of the other rewards from my pledge. Could someone please contact me and let me know what I need to do.
Hi guys - I never received my Mac download code as a backer. I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org almost six months ago, they said send a message here (which I did) and then I never heard anything. Could someone please get in touch? Would love to play the game.
Where are the sketches?
We also opted for the Wii version. I feel like due to the fact this has been ongoing for YEARS you should just give us all the PC version and the Wii version when it becomes available. I'm truly dismayed this has taken so long. I've backed many other opportunities and never had such a delay.
I have a question regarding the Wii U and other platforms versions.
Originally I pledged 25$ for the "THE GAME (DIGITAL)" reward and opted for the Wii U version, both months ago in the Kickstarter survey and more recently in the Humble Bundle Armikrog page. As I understood it, I should be entitled to download either the Mac, PC, Linux OR Wii U version of the game. Nevertheless, the Humble Bundle page tells me:
"Your purchase of Armikrog: The Game Edition gets you:
Armikrog, cross-platform and DRM-free
An Armikrog GOG key
A choice of an Armikrog Steam key (available on 9/30/15) or Wii U key (coming soon)
Armikrog high rez desktop image"
So, it appears that choosing the Wii U version precludes only the Steam version of the game but I can still download the DRM-free versions for ALL the other platforms (PC, Mac AND Linux).
This is not what is written on the reward description:
"You'll receive a DRM-free digital download of the ARMIKROG game (distributed though Steam and/or other comparable download venues) for PC, MAC OR LINUX."
What am I missing?
I don't seem to have received a link to download the Astronaut Handbook, although I pledged the correct amount for this add-on.
Could you look into it?
They have showed up now!
Same boat as the others, PDF's are'nt visable
I can't say I was ever asked for Humble Bundle info, or that kickstarter needed it or had it on file.
I, like others, have checked the ebook section of my humble bundle and do not see any pfds to those items from Armikrog
@EVERYONE (I posted this in the updates section, but thought I'd put it here too)
If you are looking for the Documentaries, they are NOT on Humble Bundle. They are on VIMEO. If you check your messages from PTS on Kickstarter (not e-mail!), there should be a link and a password to access the videos (which you can stream or download).
If you are wondering where the PDFs are on Humble Bundle, please refer to this picture:
Humble bundle doesn't have my link to the game...
Checked Humble Bundle page and no PDFs are showing up for download. I'm confused.
Based on reviews, I hope the designers are working hard on patches and fixes as well as the physical rewards they owe people. Don't even want to start playing with the UI/glitch issues so many have encountered.
Unless they can make good on this game a bit more, I think there is no hope for future KS endeavors by this studio. Not trying to be mean, just honest. The reviews are dreadful. Even the somewhat positive ones are very grudgingly given.
( Sorry, I meant v1.05)
What is the date of the v1.5 update? My Humble Bundle still shows the November 2015 update version. Thanks!
