Have a question?
Was the launch a success ?
Thanks for the details. Will you be providing an update on if the game was a financial success in a few months or so ? Hopefully it will sell well.
Some clarity on the keys available in your BackerKit because the naming of them is super unclear. Sorry about any confusion, hopefully this helps!
1. Closed Beta Keys - This is your main Steam key. Anyone in the Quest Runner and above should have received this key. It automatically transitioned from beta to early access to full realese.
2. Traveller Early Access Steam Key - This is your main Steam key. Anyone in the Traveller tier should have received this key. It automatically transitioned from early access to full realese.
3. KickstarterBaseRewards - This is a Steam key used to unlock the moose helmet and undead skin. Everyone should have received this key.
4. Kickstarter Backer High Tier - This is a Steam key to unlock the Kickstarter exclusive helmet and backpack. Anyone above Adventurer tier should have receieved this key.
5. GOG Base Game Select - This is your main GOG key. Anyone opting for GOG version of the game should have received this key.
6. GOG Kickstarter Backer Reward - This is a GOG key used to unlock the moose helmet and undead skin. Everyone selecting GOG versions should have received this key.
7. GOG High Tier Backer Reward - This is a GOG key to unlock the Kickstarter exclusive helmet and backpack. Anyone having selected GOG version and above Adventurer tier should have received this key.
IronOak, some clarification please, did we all get an extra key?
What is the "Traveller Early Access Key"?
I had a beta key for Steam, and the game still shows in my library. Now I was given a new Steam key. Is this an extra I can give to a friend? Is the new Steam code for Kickstarter-exclusive rewards or will my copy from the beta go away?
Perfect! Thank your very much!
Yup! GOG keys went out yesterday and the backer exclusive rewards will hopefully be going out today. Check your Backerkit under Digital Downloads for your keys.
fyi: gog keys are available now - on backerkit - at least mine was.
Hi there! Any news on the GOG keys we are to recieve?
A little frustrating (only a little :-), that Backers are not able to check out the game at launch...
@clint -yea that is odd i didn't know that kickstarter filtered all emails from developers. I guess it make sense as the posts are going to the kickstarter and not directly to the backers.
Oddly, kickstarter was saying I had never validated my email address which is very questionable b/c I'm pretty sure I had. I had backed other projects in the past with the same account/email. However I hadn't logged into my kickstarter account in a very long time so I never knew that kickstarter thought there was a problem with the email. Early on during the game development I was getting regular update emails about the progress to the same email address (last email I got was project update #34). But it seems that due to the unbeknownst issue I was not getting all the emails. I think everything is fine now.
@clint - they use the email you used when you started kickstart (your kickstarter login). If you have an invalid email address or spam is capturing the email that is not something they can address. You should have received a backerkit link a LONG time ago (dec 9 2015).... you might be disappointed but it is a problem on your end (in this case).
@Clint - Sorry you missed the launch! We sent a 3 day countdown Kickstarter Update and of course today's update (yesterday was a busy day for us hence the launch update today). We hope you understand! Past updates have explained how to obtain your keys via BackerKit. It sounds like you may not be receiving these updates, possibly due to a change of email address? Regardless, you can use this link to access your BackerKit which contains all your keys both past, present, and future. Let us know if you're still having issues!
Regarding GOG keys: The GOG keys will be going out as soon as we receive them from GOG. Sorry for the delay, it's a bit frustrating but it's out of our control due to GOG's manual key delivery system. We're hoping to get them soon. In the meantime feel free to use your Steam key and you'll still receive the GOG key when it's ready!
Rather disappointed that I never got an announcement email that the game is finally released. The only way I knew that it was is because I came across the info on a gaming website. Also I never got an email with a key or anything, not sure if those are automatically sent out or what...
Ok they posted an update which indicate they are still waiting on GOG for GOG keys. Apparently it is much easier to generate and send the keys via steam (this doesn't really surprise me).
i really would not like to add For The King to the now ever growing list of crowdfunding projects that first advertize for possible delivery in DRM-Free format (on GOG or Humble or whatever) and which then back off for various reasons (like "we said we would deliver DRM free, but in fact, we changed our mind"), or take several weeks to agree on solving the issues.
I hope we would get any news from the devs or the campaign manager asap please...
Ok, if the steam key is just for the extras (I don't have a steam account, so I wouldn't know), then it's probably just a matter of waiting a little bit. They're probably just waiting for GOG to send them the backer keys.
In the same boat... no GOG key but a steam key for the extras :(
Also, no word from the developers about this issue :(
Hum. expected an answer by now - at least some indication if the issue is being worked. No clue why they are not responding.
In the same boat. No GOG key. :(
oh, it feels less sad to not be alone in this problem :(
i somehow managed to check back my backerkit account, and yes, i had selected GOG digital key reward for the final release, the backerkit page shows that i selected GOG but the digital rewards button only gives me the beta steam key and the steam key for the kickstarters addons/bonuses.
Hope we will get some help on this issue, please :(
I'm in that same boat; I confirmed a GOG key but got a Steam key instead in my backerkit account.
Hi there! I did not recive my GOG key up to now... Even though Backerkit confirms that I selected GOG and not Steam... Yet, For the King is still in my Steam account... https://1drv.ms/u/s!An6sVWggT749irt_F3g16GN2gTIqug
Same here. Hope that gets sorted out soon ...
I'm curious if you'll post a list of the 'Dead Adventurers" that the Reaper Reward Tier designed at all as i have yet to encounter the design i submitted within the game, nor have i encountered the item that i designed. Is there a means to confirm their inclusion at all as that is why i backed it at the tier that i did.
I'm confused. Backer kit has a steam key but i requested a gog key ?
So happy to play full release! Great job! Any updates on the audio soundtrack download?
@Jamie - Check the Digital Downloads section of your BackerKit for all your keys. We just sent you an email with the link in case you lost it.
@nicolas - Just sent you an email with your BackerKit info that'll contain your keys.
How do I access my extra keys???
Go to backerkit to get your beta key on Steam. Game will probably release this year full version.
do the creator actually come here anymore .... or answer emails ?
So I just came back to this project to see it's progress,
And i was surprised to see there's been an early access since feb 2017.
I haven't received any Steam key and can't get a hold of the creator through the KS message system. Anyone else having problems getting their steam key ?
Hi guys. Its been a while and I was hoping you'd have another update. What's new?
3 monitors?! Epic
It won't open correctly on my pc. Defaults to a weird screen size that stretches over my 3 monitors and i can't find the menu to downsize it
Hi, any news about GOG keys?
I love the game, but even on easy I'm still failing a lot and would love to just run around and discover the world without the pressure. Free Adventure Mode sounds fantastic, I hope you are able to get to that soon.
i'm sure i have read something about it somewhere, but couldn't find it again...
do you have any general release time for the linux early access?
like, a few days, a few weeks, some months or straight to the final release?
Zhylaw - Great question! First we're working on stability patches, then Online, then Free Adventure Mode, then probably the backer created items and afterwards the skins and extras. So it could be a couple months before we get to them. Nothing is set in stone however. It's pretty crazy times for us right now but we'll be able to more accurately predict dates when things settle down.
I'm sure this has been asked many times, but what's the ETA on keys for the hats/backpack/undead skins etc.
Hello, just wondering if game was released, I never got anything. Thanks
Vryl - In between fights you can open your inventory and share items the same way you can on the overworld map. Just click on the item to see all possible options, same goes for sharing gold. If you find a dungeon merchant you can sell things this same way.
Am I missing something, or is there no way to share items between party members when you're in a dungeon?
I found the key in old backer kit mail... ^^;;;;;
Sorry, we couldn't find a survey for that email. Be sure to use the same email you used to pledge to the project. Need more help?
@Viesturs - Go to Steam - Select Games from the top menu and Activate a Product from the dropdown menu, then enter the code you received in your BackerKit
