      Kye on

      Hello Marco, I backed the add-on for an extra game key, received all the backer emails and my initial beta key but I still have not received the extra add-on key, please get back to me at your convenience, love the game so far!

    2. colin on

      Thanks Marco. Gonna fire it up soon, just got Christmas stuff to sort out. But i can't wait :-)

    3. Benitosub Creator on

      Hey colin no probs, I'm sorry you didn't get it the first time around. I sincerely hope you will enjoy the game!

    4. colin on

      Cheers Marco. I couldn't find it, but I've received the key just now. Thanks very much dude.

      (P.S. @Colin I just sent your a PM on Kickstarter too with your key :) )

      Hey colin,

      the boxed copy is not done yet :) ! You should've received an email with a Steam key a while back, did you check your junk folder?

    7. colin on

      Hi dude, I've payed for the boxed copy. It says I also get a digital copy with my pledge. Will I be getting that code soon?
      Thanks in advance :-)

      hey marco, thanks for the fast response!!

      :)

    9. Benitosub Creator on

      Hey Kyp,

      I can guess what happened without even looking :) (Mailchimp, junk folder, etc.)

      I just sent you the key again from my private email so it should get through filters!

      Cheers,

      Marco

      Hi there,i backed for extra additional gift steam key for a friend to play with but i didn't get the extra steam key, can you please see what happened?

    11. Benitosub Creator on

      Hey Joel,

      did you email me directly at benitosub at hotmail.com? I can't seem to find any message from you :(

      Either way I've just sent you a link in your email to redeem the game on GoG (I used your Kickstarter email address, please let me know if you can't find it).

      Sorry for the inconvenience, I sincerely hope you will enjoy the game!

    12. Joel Segerbäck on

      How long should it usually take to get the GOG copy for those of us with different e-mail addresses used for their Kickstarter and GOG accounts? Mailed you the address used by my GOG account 9 days ago but haven't gotten a response nor the game yet.

      Hey João, the version with the backer character is coming out today (hopefully together with the latest patch). Once it's up on Steam I will send out an email to all "backer character" backers and post a quick update here on Kickstarter.

      Cheers!

      Has the exclusive in-game content (character, ...) been released yet?
      I'm not sure if I missed anything. I received the game key, but didn't see anything about the Kickstarter in-game content. :)
      thanks

    16. colin on

      Ok dude. Looks like I'll be picking it up on Steam to get my fix :-)

      Got the GOG version (pretty cool how it appeared on my shelf, didn't know they handled direct redemption that way). Been playing it the last couple of nights, quite fun! Very Amiga-y, which is a good thing, and quite challenging but not frustratingly so (at least not yet). Some technical glitches, but that's always the case on a new release hitting different hardware. Congratulations again on the release!

    18. Benitosub Creator on

      Hi colin,
      thanks! The boxed version hasn't been sent out yet, we're still working on it :) I'm hoping it will be ready early next year!
      Cheers!

    19. colin on

      Hi dude, I've paid for the boxed copy, any info on when I can expect it by or if it's been sent out?
      Congratulations again guys :-)

    20. Benitosub Creator on

      Hey Charlie,
      sorry about this! If you have time, could you contact me directly at benitosub at hotmail dot com so we can try some repro steps and hopefully find a fix :) ?
      Cheers!

      Hi Bud,

      Just got to the prison sequence and the hacking is bugged, no mouse input or buttons seems to do anything. Really enjoying the game and would love your feedback on this. Have to alt f4 out currently!

      Great release aside from this.

      Cheers

    22. Benitosub Creator on

      Ah yes, almost forgot, the Amiga version is still in development (though not far behind). When it's finished I will post a dedicated email and send all backers download instructions. Also if you pledged for the boxed copy our goal is to include all versions in there ;)

      Cheers!

    23. Benitosub Creator on

      Hey everyone,
      and thank you all for the kind words!

      If you didn't receive an email with your Steam key (mass emails have a tendency to end up in junk folders) please contact me directly either through Kickstarter or (preferably) by email at benitosub@hotmail.com

      If you pledged for extra copies, those keys will be sent out over the week-end so keep an eye on your junk (folders!)

      If you have a GoG account which uses the same email you used for Kickstarter, the game should appear in your library any time now.

      If you have a GoG account with a different email, please get in touch and I will update our database with your GoG email so that the game can be added to your library.

      Cheers and thank you again for helping us making this a reality!

      Nice, the game is announced on GOG today!

      That's where I'll be wanting my backer key for sure. Happily, GOG gives free keys to devs. ^_^

      So excited that the game is getting so close to completion! I cannot wait to play it, and see my little easter egg! On that, will we be told where to find the easter eggs we created, or will it be on us to go hunt them down? ;-D

      Thanks for the update Marco, and for providing your direct email. I realise you all are a small team and working your hardest. I was wondering more about the size of 11bit, especially as they have also taken on another game I backed here on KS. As for how long it takes them to respond to an email, so far the answer in my experience has been "never". Not the way to run a business, especially when it reflects badly back on folks like yourself who aren't even part of the loop.

      Good luck with the rest of development, still very much looking forward to the game!

    32. Benitosub Creator on

      Hey everyone,

      I just wanted to apologize for not being more present on the Kickstarter page. As Gedracon mentioned there's really just 3 of us at the core: Thomas (the pixel artist), Raf (the music / fx artist), and myself (the programmer).

      Then there is my friend Alex (the amazing programmer) who is doing the console ports in parallel, and Daniel (the super amazing Amiga programmer) who is doing the Amiga port.

      I can assure you we're all disappointed by the delays, but we are working our proverbial a$$es off to make sure we deliver on all promises and don't disappoint anyone who backed the game.

      The console versions for sure added some workload, but they actually didn't affect our focus that much since they are being developed alongside the core version (to be clear, what I mean by that is that the core team of 3 has remained entirely focused on the desktop versions the whole time, so it's not like we had to divert resources to work on the console ports).

      What did set us back slightly is the certification process, and most importantly we are polishing and QA the heck out of the game.

      This whole journey has been a once in a lifetime opportunity for us, and we really want to nail it rather than rush a buggy game out the door.

      If there is one positive thing I can say though, it's this:

      The game is absolutely coming out, it hasn't been cancelled, we didn't give up or anything, in fact the actual game is pretty much done, and we are in the process of fixing as many bugs as we can find and getting approval from Microsoft and Sony.

      Regarding emails, I can't vouch for 11bit and how fast they respond, but you are all more than welcome to email me directly at my private address benitosub at hotmail dot com, which I check daily.

      And finally I believe Thomas will be at Gamescom this week, so if any of you are attending feel free to drop by and say hello :) (don't worry, the art for the game has been done for a while now so it's not taking time away from the game ^_^# I, on the other hand, am right here at home working morning to night on the game!).

      Oh yeah and regarding KS updates, that's totally on me, I did drop the ball on that one, it was inexcusable to not post anything for 4 months. I didn't think anybody would care about an update with no new screenshots, features, announcements, etc. but I realize I was 100% wrong. Therefore I will resume posting updates more frequently, even if just to say "hey we're still here, hang in there!"

      Again please don't hesitate to email me directly if you have any questions, concerns, or just need to vent!

      Cheers,

      Marco / benitosub

    33. Gedracon on

      @Howard @John: They are no big company, talked to them last year at Gamescom in Germany and they had one programmer, one pixel artist / graphic guy and one person for the music. Don't know how many new people joined for the console stuff? So for me it was not very surprising that they have trouble answering mails.
      Was a little bit disappointed about the delay because they put their focus on the console releases, but i think thats a publisher decision and is also quiet common. Many KS project need the support from their backers to start, but the goal is to find a publisher to secure their future. Have many examples in my KS support list and you can always see the shift in communication when they find a publisher...

      @Howard Kistler: I find it very amateurish to have an email address, but don't respond to questions. Even if it is just a "we forwarded your mail". No response at all is bad behaviour.

      Hi, i backed a few years ago this game. How can i get the Steam Key for the Backer Edition?

    36. Howard Kistler
      Superbacker

      @Gedracon - Yes, not uncommon for videogames on KS. I know the devs often have their heads down coding, but it was unusual for emails to the publisher to go unanswered. Generally they typically have someone on staff for whom that's a big part of their job. Maybe they aren't as big as they seem.

    37. Gedracon on

      @Howard: Contacted them some time ago. Got a little response (without any real informations) several weeks later. The new update fits the overall project communication, but that's quiet normal for KS software projects.

    38. Howard Kistler
      Superbacker

      I emailed the publisher (11 bit studios) twice and never got a reply. But it's clear from today's update that they must have passed the message on at least. Not very professional of them to fail to respond directly, but at least it got the desired results.

    39. Howard Kistler
      Superbacker

      Benitosub hasn't logged into KS since Apr 29 2017, around the time of the last update. I will try emailing them directly through the Tower 57 website, but this long silence doesn't bode well.

      @Windham: No you are not the only one. I'm still waiting for the release. And to be honest, I was always positive about this, but in the last weeks, this kickstarter seems to go the same way of many. Silence. Nobody can tell me that it is impossible to write a few sentences every few weeks. 4 Months with nothing. I'm now at the point where I don't give a fuck about this. Money is gone, nothing delivered. End of story for me.

    41. Windham Wong on

      so, whats going on with this project now. Am I the only one not having the game? The last update is 4 months ago and no more news after.
