So with all the bad reviews for planar conquest I doubt it will be a financial success and Wastelands Interactive won't have the money for the physical rewards.
They are crooks. They took our money, never intending to deliver. Have they delivered? My mail box is still empty.
I can't understand the mindset of a developer that operates like this. Do they think we'll just go away if they ignore us long enough? Or do they just not care at all that we're over here shouting ourselves hoarse?
You take care of your backers first. Period. Disregarding them like this is disgraceful.
At this point we need a way to request a refund, as they apparently have no interest in ever actually giving us what we paid for.
I have emailed them repeatedly about a key and no response.
Yeah, same here. And honestly, the approach "email us and we might send you key for the thing you paid us over three years ago" is really annoying.
Well, live, learn, and never back certain people again.
So since the relaunch in May, we've gone from "a few weeks" to "4-6 weeks" to "mid-August" for when I might be getting my -backer copy- of the game, and now well into September we're back to mysterious silence again.
I really regret backing this project. At least it's been educational. I knew that there were risks of the game being delayed, or never being finished, or just not being any good. But it never crossed my mind that the game would be completed and released, and the devs wouldn't bother to send me a copy.
Don't do this again, WI. We need an update on our backer copies.
Where is the physical copy? And all the extras that I ordered with my higher reward level (ie, paid MORE to get) physical copy?
Well, I still don't Steam...ever, so I'll just hope for the DRM version somewhere down the road.
Now that WoM...isn't WoM anymore, should I assume any/all of the Add-Ons I opted for are integrated into Planar Conquest, or simply abandoned?
Also still got nothing so far. Also why they send a PM to every backer that contain nothing else then a link to the steam page for the new game is complete beyond me.
Still waiting on the original game here, too. I signed up for a DRM free version back then and never go anything. The last word I got was in 2014, which they announced the Early Access for Steam users. :S
About the upgrade to Planar Conquest. Well, assuming that I am ever going to get anything at all, will that game be released for Linux as well? Steam has only the Windows symbol for it and you know, the primary reason why I backed this game back then was its Linux support, so...
With a lot of delay, a big big thanks to @Petrell for his clear answer. :)
Where is my game (pledged 3 years ago, still nothing sent to me yet)????
@ Petrell: Yeah I've been waiting for the DRM free version as well.
Never, never, ever back a video project. I backed three in 2013, including this one. All three have failed. No delivery. In one case, the designer/developer sold his design studio and disappeared altogether, taking our money with him. I will never, never back another video project again.
@Guild, the PC version won't be ready for a while longer.
Yes, how do I get my copy of Planar Conquest to play on my PC?
So how do I get my copy of Planar Conquest?
@garkham: GOG rejected WoM half year or so ago. Here's hoping Wastelands Interactive will resubmit Planar Conquest and it'll be accepted so I can claim my promissed DRM-free copy.
As far as I can tell Planar Conquest is what Worlds of Magic should've been on launch. You could call it Worlds of Magic Enhanced Edition instead. It'll contain everything WoM had so there will be no reason to play WoM once Planar Conquest comes out.
Mh I think I don't get all of this. I'm part of this weird team only playing DRM-free and waiting for the physical game. Can you just explain me if :
* I will get a DRM-free version of Worlds of Magic or not ? On GOG or not ?
* I will get a physical edition of Worlds of Magic or not ?
* I will get a DRM-free version of Planar Conquest or not ? On GOG or not ?
* I will get a physical edition of Planar Conquest or not ?
If only getting one of the two games, what Planar Conquest does not have (in content) that Worlds of Magic had ? Don't say 'BUGS' hey, I'm just wondering if I will lose something by non playing at WoM 1.0 because Planar Conquest it's a real sequel, or if it's most an "Enhanced Edition" that integrates all the original WoM stuff.
Thanks in advance.
Planar Conquest is enhanced (sequel) version of Worlds of Magic.
Much much improved game.
Yeah, I'm with Jaysyn: what is Planar Conquest? Admittedly, I lost touch with this project when time stretched on, I don't Steam...ever, and anything I did hear was negative. So I just stopped pursuing information. Suddenly, an update in my e-mail about a game I've never heard of. Is Planar Conquest just WoM with a new name?
What the hell is Planar Conquest?
NewYear.....2016. This is the quarter they alluded to that would see them deliver physical rewards. The countdown starts towards March 31. Still have heard NO updates since August from them, and I have no game, and no physical rewards on a pledge made in May 2013.
I would have never guessed that the developer will disappoint us! But no words on the physical reward and still after all that time getting nothin is a hard truth!
The last update in late August spoke about first quarter 2016. This now makes the game over 2 years late by the time it is delivered with the physical rewards and relaunched (non beta) PC version . But they were specific about this and as much as I hate the wait, at least they communicated their intentions, which is OK by me (still hate the wait).
In addition still no word about the box reward! A pitty ! Seems they stopped supporting the game....
Have you forgotten that some of your backers DO NOT have the game at all at this point? Why are you unable to make this happen, or even explain what the holdup is? Why are you talking about tablets and consoles as if anyone here still waiting for their PC copy wants to hear it? Do you need me to list off the ways you could fix this? I shouldn't have to, because they're pretty obvious.
A little over 5-6 weeks since the last update.
Please give an update to physical reward backers.
In your last posting you promised as soon as possible, but no specific dates could be promised at that time.
How about now? Can you give us a date now?
5 months on and still no DRM-free release. What's the excuse this time?
'Ok, so there´s still hope that I get my physical box I pledged for. Thanks for the update. And keep being in touch with us.
Better late than never I suppose.
Thanks for sending the key however I have been asking for it via email since March. I'm glad there is some movement on the GOG release but as others have stated please try to stay in touch on Kickstarter at least until you have fulfilled the various rewards.
Thank you for the communication and update. That's all I wanted. Some communication that there is stuff forthcoming.
Where have you guys been? I shouted as loud as I could! Stay in touch with us.
I take back all I said now that you are back. Just don't get lost again. Again, thanks for the update.
I've received information from GOG that their version should be available in July.
We wanted the game to be released at the same moment as the STEAM version but later we decided to hold until the game will be in state that both parties will be. With the upcoming 1.2 patch we are pretty happy, so the beta has been already sent to GOG.
All the physical rewards are going to be delivered as soon as possible, but at this moment I'm not able to give you any specific date.
Please remember that if you ordered physical version, there is also one digital copy included for you.
Together with 1.2 patch we are finishing the extra content for backers, so digital extras should be sent this month.
@Andy Smith, if you take a look at your email, you will see that the key has been sent within about hour after you requested it, in private message.
Sometimes it might take longer but we are doing our best to send the keys as soon as possible.
Is there an echo in here?
Hey! They took my money and my mailbox continues to be empty from their failure to provide a physical product that I pledged and paid for 2 years ago that was going to be sent to me. Kickstarter fraud...
Where is my Game????
In my book, it is an utter kickstarter failure to deliver the promise of what I backed. They took my money, delivered an inferior product on a platform I did not pay for, and I got nothing in return. Except their refusal to acknowledge me or the obligation they have to me (and other backers of physical rewards).
I requested a steam key back in March after the offer was made. Requested it again recently but I still have no key. I assume the quality control of the game and the mediocre reviews it has received will result this not appearing on GOG anytime soon. Hopefully I'm proved wrong on this but I'll add this to my list of projects that have failed to deliver anything to me.
Still waiting. For all of us that ordered physical rewards, we got duped. Has anyone received any physical rewards?
Please tell me where my game is at.
Where is my game?
Where is the game I paid for?
Please tell me where my game is.
Where are my physical copy and rewards?
Please tell me where my game is.
Where is my game?
Where are the physical rewards I paid for?
Now almost 3 months since I asked where my physical copy is at. No reply as of yet. Where is the product I paid for? The product I paid extra to get? It ain't on Steam. Still waiting...for a product they apparently thought they were finished with once they got version 1.0 on to Steam.
Yup, an update about the physical rewards would be greatly appreciated, please do so! :)
