Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
If you want to change the download choise, you will be able to do that at the time of download. No need to contact PTS for that kind of questions. :D
Here´s a summary that might answer some of the most frequent questions that has been lately. The backers hasn´t started to recieve their Steam codes, the release is set to be aug 18, 2015.
Once the game has been released, we'll start focusing on the physical rewards.
The Wii U release will happen after the initial August release of the game. We don't have a specific date yet, but as we get closer we'll announce it here in an update.
The HUMBLE STORE (part of the Humble Bundle team) will be handling the digital distribution of the Armikrog game and digital rewards to all of our backers. They will provide you with all of your digital content, DRM-free game downloads, Steam keys and Wii U keys.
Contact the Armikrog team / Pencil Test Studio:
In order to ease the work-load for the team, only contact PTS this way if you are truly sure that there are no other way to get help.
Log into Kickstarter using the same account as when backing Armikrog. Go to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/armikrog, under "created by" click "Pencil Test Studios" and then click the "Contact me" button.
If you click on the pencil test studios button on the main armikrog page there will be something clickable that says contact if you click that you will be able to write a message with your request. As for the @ thing I've just seen other people do it it seems to work.
Also I would like to trade my Wiiu version for beta access for the month if I could.
The game is already pre-purchasable at Steam. Are the backers already receiving their Steam codes?
I ask cause the game is going to be released soon and as far as i have seen there have been no info about when the backers are going to receive their games.
Im not trying to pressure, i would just like some info if anybody have some.
@SkulKid is this how you leave someone a kickstarter message? with the @ sign?
just post it on here?
Have you tried leaving them a kickstarter message?
the web adress i meen, like an email
what is the address to speak with an Armikrog representative?
So when we will get our prizes?
So when we will get out prizes?
I just picked up a Wii U just randomly the other day, and now I remember this is coming to Wii U as well! I can't wait!
Will I get my T-Shirt before or after release date?
I received word that it's 100% confirmed they will AT LEAST distribute through steam or humble bundle. BUt they said they are still working out details on which distribution sites backers will be able to download from and they'll announce any other sites that will have the game available as part of our Kickstater fulfillment as those details become available.
So there's that for now.
I can't believe it's been 2 years since we backed this project. Time sure does fly. Glad to see it's finally coming to a successful conclusion. Great job guys. Can't wait to play the final result.
I sent a message but haven't heard back yet.
Is that August release date also for the WiiU version?
Since I'm starting to see the game on sale now (awesome!), I'm seeing that it comes in a regular and a Digital Deluxe edition, and that the Digital Deluxe edition comes with the soundtrack.
At the time of the Kickstarter, I could only afford the basic game tier. I assume that will not entitle me to the Deluxe edition. But would I be missing out on anything (any sort of Kickstarter exclusive) by ordering the Deluxe edition elsewhere, and gifting the regular edition away?
Thank you, and congrats on getting this project out into the world! :)
@Cordis: No idea. Try contacting Pencil Test via a message, and please comment back here. Looks like they are too busy to clarify this.
@Nick Roberts: No one doubted it will be available for sale on GOG. The question was whether backers can get it there.
Well well well well . . . look what I found on GOG.com
So to everyone who were wondering if it was going to be available on GOG, rest assured it's a go!
I'd like to have my backer copy on GoG as well, just like all other games from Kickstarter.
How do we add or change whether we want a copy on Steam or not? I can't find this anywhere, and my only survey answer was "PC".
Changing it should be pretty simple if GOG can cooperate. And as I wrote below - GOG are very helpful about it.
It's better to sort this stuff out now, than later when it will be to close to the release.
Guys, it WILL be available through GOG. I don't believe they can change how you are going to get it through your backer rewards if you didn't choose GOG in the survey (they have 18,126 different surveys). However, it will be available through GOG. Just give them time to work out the hiccups. We have about 2 months until it is released. No need to panic.
It shouldn't be hard to provide backers with GOG keys for the game. See here:
> Here's how it works:
> "Please give us X amount of keys."
>"OK, here you go."
> That's about it, really. It would be silly to charge developers
>for keys to their own game :)
So, please do it.
I see. Then I obviously said "PC" - yes, "Steam" - no. And I agree, it shouldn't be hard for GOG to partner to provide backers rewards.
Also the only options in the survey were: What platform will you play on? "PC" Will you download it through steam? "No"
Well, if it´s humble bundle, I can live with that (since I value drm free), though my preferred platform would be GOG as that´s where my love and library is at.
I don't remember actually what I specified, since at that time GOG didn't provide Linux builds (so I probably specified HB). But now they do, so I'd surely prefer GOG release if it's an option.
> @Nick Roberts: I can GUARANTEE that it will be available through GOG.com
For sale, but not for backers as far as I understood. Here is the message I got from Pencil Test Studios:
> GOG will be selling the game once its released, but all of the
> Kickstarter DRM-free game downloads for Armikrog will be
> distributed through Humble Bundle. You'll receive an email from
> HB once we've finished the game, so stay tuned!
I really hope they'll provide GOG option too, since I prefer to use GOG.
August 18, 2015 is the release date. YES! Well done, everyone!
Can't wait to play this on my Wii U. :)
@ Marin & Shmerl
I can GUARANTEE that it will be available through GOG.com It was one of the options on where to get the digital version from, and the guys said to me directly that it will be available from them. I believe you specified where you wanted to get it from in the Survey that they sent out.
It will be available through Steam, GOG, Wii U (when that version is finished), and Humble Bundle.
I just read about someone saying backers can't get a gog code. What's up with that? I backed the project believing I'd be able to get the game on GOG. I don't use steam at all and I really don't want to start using it so this is a problem for me. :(
GOG lists Armikrog for pre-order. But I can't get the game there as a backer :(
@ Wayne Kierstead Your best bet is to send a message on here to PTS (Pencil Test Studios). I am not sure if they can change your address this late in the process, but I hope it can be done. Are you receiving any physical items?
Kids, I've moved. How do I update my address?
@Cordis Watch it, or I will report you.
I am a big fan of TenNapel's work and I will continue to support his creative career. I also support him against the militant homofascists and the feminazis who impose their political agenda on all spheres of human life, including the creative.
God bless you Doug.
It's been really quiet. Is everything alright?
Monthly update time!!!! Hope you guys are having a blast! We can't wait to join you!
So, where are the updates? I see that nearly $1 million was raised, but we haven't had an update in a while. When can we expect this?
Congrats PS !!!
It's been 2 years since the launch of this campaign.
Any idea of a release date, other than soon?
Release in like 3 months or 3 weeks or 3 days or 3 hours or 3 mins or 3 secs or .....
At a time when many Kickstarters are failing to deliver on their promises, it's nice to see one that is a success. The Armikrog game looks gorgeous and fun. Bravo to every person in this incredibly talented Armikrog team. You have been true professionals. I appreciate, and am inspired by, all your hard work.
any idea when we're getting the doug tennapel drawings?
Congrats on being part of the list!
Beta Test Access is add-on, it is not listed in any of rewards. So unless you've additionally paid for it, you are not getting it.
