@Sven Bahn: Did you contact Fangamer? He probably got an invoice from them for shipped items only (vs. the whole pledge amount).
What did you do to get your BluRay???
My one was refused from german customs because i don´t want to pay more money. I already payed 100,-$ + 10,-$ for international shipment!!!
And now I should pay again? All I got from Double Fine Support was, that this is my problem:
We're sorry that you ran into customs fees with your order. While we set fair values on our international shipments, German customs tends to be very strict, and packages shipped to your country almost always include extra fees to import. It is the responsibility of the customer to pay these fees. You can find more information about this here:
We can not predict how customs officers will assess packages, and we can not pre-pay fees via standard post. The only way to send packages with taxes pre-paid is to use UPS expedited service (which would have cost an extra $35 USD), because the taxes are pre-paid and included in the price."
Very, very bad Double Fine! :-(
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org, they are handling the sending of the boxes. They should know if your packages were sent and when.
I also did the $100 pledge and I still haven't received my box. I live in Michigan. Who do I contact to find out what's going on? Thanks!
I did the $100 pledge and I still haven't received my box. I live in California. Who do I contact to find out what's going on? Thanks!
Just got my box in Israel, how post is quite bad in here :(
I wish we will switch to UPS or Fedex as our post services
On another note, this looks amazing alto I've already finished the game few times :)
Good to know!
I've heard before that German customs can be quite a hassle...
Double Fine office is closed atm. But got it sorted out today with Fangamer.
Thanks to their support staff!
I live in Northern California and I haven't gotten my collector's edition yet...anyone else so close by still waiting for their merch?
@Stefan Lewantoski: Did you try to request a proper invoice for the box from Double Fine? Would this help with customs?
Got mine couple of days ago here in Greece.
Feels strange this Odyssey came to an end
My reward lies at german customs because it is not correct declared which is the value for the goods. At Kickstarter i only have the complete value at which i now have to pay taxes. This is not ok for me so i will refuse acceptance. Very Bad, other Kickstarter Projects did this right everytime.
I haven't recieved mine yet:( really looking forward to it though. Hoping the gamebox arrives soon. (Norway).
I got my box in Sweden yesterday. Really fabulous! It was worth the wait! Thank you! (By the way - there was an exhibition called "Game Masters" in my hometown Halmstad last year. They displayed golden oldies (tempest, Donkey Kong) and newer games plus indie games. Broken Age was one of the games! I really enjoyed that moment!)
Thursday, 15th of December 2016.
The day our transaction was completed. Thank you, Tim. Thank you... and may God have mercy on your soul.
Cool, I got to tick the "Got it" box for my first backed project yesterday! The game box arrived safely in Belgium!
I got it, live in Canada in GTA. Thanks all!
Got mine too, awesome!
The package wasn't padded, it was a little bit beaten up (minor damage at one corner of the game box), but nothing serious. Fangamer normally makes a much better job than this.
@Mike Hansford: You should really watch the documentary!
After 5 years, with much fanfare (not really), I'm happy to say that I've finally ticked "got it" on my very first Kickstarter.
It's been a wild ride (waiting mostly), and it's finally over. I never finished the game, and I'm pretty sure I'll never watch the 30 hour documentary, but I'm glad I was part of the adventure.
Thanks Double Fine. :D
This was my first Kickstarter ever backed, and just today I got the boxed copy of the game with the documentary discs. Thank you Double Fine, it's been a long time coming but now that I have it I can finally check that Got it! box on Kickstarter.
I've received my boxed version in Germany last week.
Thank you Double Fine for the experience - it was long with unexpected twists and turns but it contained lots of great moments and memories.
All the best to the future of the studio!
Just received my version of the game. I live in Denmark. It's the first Kickstarter project I backed. Since then I've backed a lot more. :)
Big Box with no padding received a couple of days ago but luckily was intact (Belgium).
Anyone in Canada receive the Big Box yet?
The Double fine adventure was my very first kickstarter and I just got to click the box saying I received my items wooot!
Aaaaaaaand it's here \o/
Big box received without any visible issue (France)
it's been a long ride (and un bumpy one) but now, 4,5 years later i can finally mark the "received" checkbox on the kickstarter "backed projects" page.
I suffered from the same that the inside holder cardboard in the box got damaged because while travelling in the post from USA to Finland, the bluray set was most likely moving inside the box. The big box itself is in perfect shape though so that's most important for me. It does not really matter to me that the inside holder is a bit ripped from the corners.
Got the big box this week. Huge thanks to Tim Schafer, Double Fine and 2 Player Productions.
The box and it's contents are amazing. This long journey is finally completed and it was worth the wait. Christmas came early this year.
@Banni Ibrahim: see https://twitter.com/TimOfLegend/status/806907444412592128
So, I got my boxed version today. What I wanted to know, are all the other materials like the Blu-Ray and other extras in the box? Or will they be separate? I would rather not open the box if just the game is in it.
I finally got my big box! yay!

I got my broken age big PC box, game and blu-ray today its really nice looking my only complaint is that the tray that holds the blu-ray case in the big PC box does not hold the case very well it got loose during shipping and the tray ended up getting ripped and kind of deformed my big PC box
I would like to inform you - similar to my message a few days ago - the 42 GB file from Humble is also corrupt - bad CRC.
Please could you inspect it and help me and the world ?
God dhl's tracking sucks. My package shiped 28th and the only update sence has been "en route" worse that seems to mean less than nothing as it first said it enters this phase on the 2nd but each day they update it to say it entered the "en route" phase the current day. So it's luring to make it sound like progress is being made when it's not. So I have no idea how close it is and no estmated delivery date. I can't plan to be home wich means it will get left in the snow.
Still waiting for it in Germany but finally it's on its way..
*phrasing. Beat you to it.
I cant believe what I'm holding right now. It finally came!
I can't believe I'm actually holding this game in my hands. Amazing!
Box arrived yesterday for me. T-Shirt and poster were actually sent out all the way back in 2012 or 2013, grey shirts with a subtle Adventure Backer print.
Box arrived. No t-shirt or poster, but the box is nice.
Box arrived today in the Netherlands. :D
Arrived today to Dublin, Ireland. A happy kickstarter customer here! Be almost a shame to break the seal on the box.
Thanks, wow it's finally over.
While trying to remember what level I had pledge at, I noticed KS wanted to know if rewards had shown up, so I Clicked on the "I got it" to let KS know too.
Today I received the final (very nice) Blu-Ray package via US Postal, thanks, so much guys.
Quick question, if I backed at the $15 level, is there any way to download the tvOS version without buying again?
I've done some more digging. For those who may be confused as to how to get the VHX quality definitive edition, check your Humble Bundle Keys page. Had to go through the forums to find that out. Anyway, be sure to type the address for http://video.doublefine.com/ since it may not work. After you've claimed your Deluxe Edition content you can find it again in the Browse section of the DF Video Library. Looking forward to going back and watching everything.
I'm also wondering how I get the definitive edition. I back at $30,- but only see episodes for the documentary in Humble Bundle. On VHX my e-mail was not recognized. Not happy about this being so obtuse, because I can't find anywhere that we could link our backing to VHX.
Ignore my last post lol
