The DFCO App is About To Debut on Mobile Devices
The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game is coming to iOS and Android on January 7!
When it releases (which could have a lot of variance around that 24 hour period), you can find the mobile versions here — links won't work until the app shows up in these marketplaces:
- iOS on the App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dresden-files-co-op-card-game/id1112435806?mt=8
- Android on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hiddenachievement.dfco
- Android/Kindle Fire on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0721L62G1
The base price for the mobile version (priced according to how that market works) of the game is $6.99, with expansions at $3.99 (for Fan Favorites, Helping Hands, and Wardens Attack) and $2.99 (for Mouse & Variants).
As a reminder, Kickstarter backers receive all the expansions that were unlocked as part of the Kickstarter for free. You'll need to purchase the app on whatever platform(s) you wish to play on; your properly set up Hidden Achievement account can then be used to unlock the expansions at no added cost inside of the app.
You will need to use the code you got (or can retrieve, if your email account bounced the message) through BackerKit on the Hidden Achievement website account service for the game to get those expansions unlocked.
(Why an account through Hidden Achievement? Because it'll let you unlock the expansions across all platforms, mobile and non-mobile.)
Here are the instructions on how to unlock the expansions in your Hidden Achievement account (if you didn't already do this):
- Register an account at https://accounts-dfco.hiddenachievement.com/
- Fill in your information: Pick an account name that you will used to log in from the game (different from any screen name you might use - this will not be visible to others), enter your full name, email address, and pick a password.
- Check the confirmation boxes.
- Click on the “Register” button at the bottom of the form.
After you register, you will receive an automated email with a code to complete the registration. When that arrives, click the link in the email or enter the code on the web page and then log in to your account.
At this point, you can set up two-factor authentication for increased account security, either with an authenticator app like Google Authenticator or using email for your two-factor authentication.
You can then redeem your key from the “KEYS” tab on your profile.
Once your key is redeemed, you should see the list of entitlements on your account, like this:
Once you’ve installed the game on your mobile device, you can log in to the account you created by opening “Options” and then selecting to the “Network” tab and entering your account name and password, and then verifying your two-factor authentication code if you set one up.
If you run into any problems, contact email@example.com for help. Evil Hat won't be able to help with app issues!
And as a final note: Wherever you choose to purchase the app, please leave a review. The Steam release of the game has been struggling in ratings mainly from a sub-section of reviewers who don't like the game play of the card game itself. (It's perfectly fine not to like the gameplay, but it's not really the app's fault, even if those reviews and ratings still affect both the app's visibility and the overall viability of the adaptation.) So if you're a fan of the card game's gameplay and enjoy the opportunity to play it in an electronic medium, your positive voice could really help the app (and the folks who've been pouring their efforts into it) succeed.
As always, thanks for your support!
