Got a question a bit off topic - where can one create / order big box these days?
My address has changed recently. What's the best way to get in contact with whoever's responsible to change it?
I backed this but never got around to playing it. Does my pledge also include an ipad code or do I need to buy it seperately on iphone/ipad?
@Roger . It's not insane, it's reality. Then again, reality can be insane, I suppose. Perhaps you should embrace reality, and through it, insanity.
The documentary on this project is huge! It is, without doubt, the most comprehensive and detailed documentary on game development ever. It may end up being compulsory watching for all budding game developers. I really can't state how groundbreaking it is. It is, as you have said, insane. But in an awesomely good way.
Though I love the game itself, in the years to come, I feel that the legacy of this game will actually be this documentary. I'm very glad they're giving it the 5-star treatment.
It is really amazing how much of a delay this so called documentary can be on the shipping of this box. I am not really sure how it is possible that I got my massive Chalice box BEFORE this one. I guess we can thank our documentary crew for this EPIC delay. To have received around 50 projects BEFORE I can finally tick off the FIRST kickstarter i did as complete is just insane. It is also the one thing that made me not want to invest in Psychonauts 2.
@Alex I think the Google Doc says the documentary is nearly finished. Some small errors to correct, and they have to figure out the assets for the menu layout, and how everything will fit on a disc. The time consuming things such as colour corrections, commentary subtitles, and editing is all completed.
I haven't been following that Google doc closely, any idea how fast work has been going on it? I'm kind of wondering if I'll get my box set in 2016 or if I should just keep waiting into 2017.
@Nathan "JintoLyn" Jones: In the spreadsheet you can see that they've made some progress. E.g. all commentary tracks are now recorded and discs are being built now.
Any word on the project Bluray or boxed versions of this game? Really surprised the companies involved are moving on to other projects instead of nipping this one in the bud and getting it completed. Reminds me of city roadwork jobs, how you always see multiple roads under construction at the same time instead of finishing one and then moving onto the other. Guess not being in the field, I just can't fathom how much work needs to go into this. Anyone in the field of dvd/film mastering able to shed light on the subject?
@ChristianG: Duuude, why didn't you back Thimbleweed Park??
I backed Double Fine with 100$
And all I got was a t-shirt.
Estimated delivery: Aug 2012
Damn and I was so hoping for nothing more but a hilarious game in the spirit of "Maniac Mansion" with cheesy jokes and many many paths to the end of the game.
Still nothing :(
Any idea when the $100 tier backers get their box, blu-ray, etc?
Estimated delivery: Aug 2012
Is there a spot I can go to update my address? I want to be sure the physical stuff ships to the right place when it goes out.
@Dalthon: If you didn't claim any of your digital rewards yet it's your fault. Most of the digital ones are done (e.g. game and soundtracks).
The special edition box is not done yet. Especially the remastering of the documentary takes some time, but there is progress. Which can be tracked here btw.: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jG9ZsaaHp05rtSI5ql3n-FP9bnPn2kSNNKbAvgK7vjE/pubhtml
@Dalthon: You did get the shirt and poster, fwiw.
@DoubleFine: Hey, the Psychonauts 2 fundraiser just ended. Can we grease the physical rewards production wheel with some of that loot? Let's not hit the 4 year mark on the expected date for these rewards, ok?
So, I was in the $100 tier, and eight months after the game is completed, I stil have NO box and no documentary on blu-ray (that I know - work in progress), NO digital finished game, NO digital the documentary series with extras, NO digital game soundtrack, NO digital documentary soundtrack, NO PDF version of the Double Fine Adventure Book... Well to be honest I got NOTHING...
Where's the download link for pledgers?
Happy new year, going to be a cynic here and wonder aloud how much longer it will be on the special box set.
@Alexis Maes: They fulfilled their main promise and created the game and a documentary. I don't think there is a way to justify refunds now. And I'm sure we will get the physical rewards eventually.
@Xenophon: Because I enjoyed the game and the documentary. And I want Psychonauts 2 to happen.
I have waited for 3 and half a year for my boxed version. Is there a way to get my money back ?
How anyone would give these crooks a penny after how they handled this and DF-9 is beyond me.
@Stephen Well, they are using a competitor, so advertising another crowdfunding site on kickstarter is probably not allowed by kickstarter :)
@Gabriel 2 player productions are still working on editing of the documentary. You can follow the progress here -> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jG9ZsaaHp05rtSI5ql3n-FP9bnPn2kSNNKbAvgK7vjE/pubhtml
Yeah.. uh.. Apparently Psychonauts 2 is being crowdfunded then..?
Randomly heard about this from some other unrelated forum.
God forbid you guys at doublefine actually put out a Kickstarter update from both here and Massive chalice to actually let people know and be aware of it or anything though...
Jesus christ, want to maybe, you know advertise and let previous customers know about this at some point?
So Psychonauts 2 is up on fig... And I haven't gotten my copy of broken age yet. Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Is there a place where I can update my mailing address before the physical game is sent out? I have moved since the start of the Kickstarter. (Similar to Jeff Nowak below)
I dont know if this is the right forum to bring this up, but I have yet to get the box game or the Blu Ray Documentary in the mail. The only thing I have gotten is the shirt. Is there a back order for this? It has been a very long time since this was shipped out.
I am also waiting for the box set and blu-ray to be mailed. But I have moved since I backed the project and need to update my mailing information. How would I go about doing this so that I can get my backer goodies? Thanks in advance for your time.
Another update on the Double Fine forum, regarding the Blu-ray (the long straw in getting the boxes shipped): "We’re building discs in November with the goal of having things done and ready to print by the end of the month. They probably won’t arrive by Christmas but hopefully not much longer after."
I saw a copy of Broken Age in a gaming store yesterday and was tempted to buy it before remembering I actually backed this game for a physical copy. It's been so long...
For those asking for updates on the shipping if the physical game, you can get far more timely information on the Double Fine forum: http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/17470/
Yes, it would be good to post an occasional update here (once every few months) for those not monitoring the forum, but at least the info is available.
For the lazy, here's a summary of the most recent posted info as of this writing (from 10/2):
Bagel paintings: "currently being packaged for postage, and should all be sent out very soon"
Big Box & Blu Ray: "We hope to get this out before the end of the year"
Art Book: "most likely going to be shipped in 2016"
Hello ... anyone know how I would get my hands on my steam code ... I stopped following this project some time ago and just recently decided to go through my over 100 kickstarts and noticed I never got the code for this one .. now that its done I am looking forward to it ... but don't know what to do next ... any suggestions ??
Have they shipped the game yet?
Sorry not October, December, stupid brain lol
Aha so October for the big box edition? I was randomly going through these and realised i had the poster and the t shirt but not the game lol. Glad its still on the way ^_^
Hi, I pledged $100 for the Special Edition but have not received it yet. The last message I got about it was in 2012 O_O;;;;;;;;
I'm glad they responded to your twitter question but I wish they'd take 5min to post a small (it can even be one sentence) update on Kickstarter. Thank you @Alexis for posting the information for them.
Asked their Twitter account, they promptly replied saying they're looking at a Christmas time frame for the big box, and the art book early next year.
Yeah, still waiting on a game box here, totally forgot about it to be honest. =/
Is this kickstarter abandoned like the others?
Wow I just found an interview with Tim on IGN and it reminded me... What's going on with my game box!
Please take a minute or two of your time to update us on the status of this project, in particular the boxed copy of the game. Clearly folks are feeling left in the dark.
Any news on the boxed copy of the game???????????????????????????????????
Yep, also waiting for any updates on the box. This is definitely a lesson learned...
Yeah, I was in the $100 tier, no box and no documentary. This wouldn't bother me so much if they would just give an update! Come on guys, we are the ones that kickstarted this and now you just leave us in the dark!?
So are the physical boxes already out there? I'm in the Netherlands and have not received one as of yet. Should I be worried?
