      I have received a tube with a poster and that was it.
      They never confirmed the other rewards. What the hell?

    2. ThomasN on

      Kurt K: If you didn't already, you could contact them via ticket:

    3. Kurt K

      I too didn't confirm. My Mother was sick and later passed and I really wasn't focused on this. Is there way way to still get our rewards?

    4. Charlotte Woolley on

      I am guessing I am a bit late to the party here (I don't seem to have ever received a shipment mail) I have never confirmed a shipping address and therefore never got my CE *really hoping you won't tell me I'm too late like the guys from Leisure Suit Larry did*

      Thanks! Found it!

      Take a look at your Steam Folder, there is an BonusConten Folder which includes the things your are looking for.
      Under ...Steam/steamapps/common/The Book Of Unwritten Tales 2/BonusContent

    7. Ingo Devooght on

      Hi, maybe I missed something, but where can I download the Soundtrack and the artbook? On the kingart page I can't download it. In steam I can't find any extra content.

      Just got my CE today - thank you sooo much and a shout out goes to Manuel! Only thing is my inside cardboard was ripped in one corner. Other than that, what a beautiful CE.

    9. Marin on

      I don't know where to write this but I am having a lot of fun with the book of unwritten tales 2! The best word I can describe it all is: Charming.
      I love the humour and the charm it has. I play it now and then pretty casual and I am enjoying every moment of it. :)

    10. ThomasN on

      Just got the physical stuff. That critter hand puppet is REALLLLY <3
      Thanks for going with quality

    11. Martin O

      @ThomasN: Interesting! It looks like a glassblower at work.

    12. ThomasN on

      As I am watching the 3d design portion of the vlogs, I thought that Occulus Rift maybe help with the zbrush stuff.. and indeed that's a thing:…

    13. ThomasN on

      Finished it. Loved Timmy Mauskovitz the most. Thanks to everyone building up that character. Your characters got so strong, I can't decide who I like to play the most anymore :-)

    14. Dean & Kate on

      I got the CE through th post today, unfortunately it was missing the signed autograph card and the inside cardboard that held the game was very damaged, It is a real shame because it is a wonderfully detailed box, the kickstarter art book and mouse mat is incredible and the case that holds the game and the art book is wonderful too. So disappointing to receive it with thoese issues after the long waite. I am confident that King Art will resolve the issue though

    15. Michael R. on

      Just as a heads up: Today KAG released a new patch (going to Version It looks like they fixed something in Episode 1, 3 and 5. And on Windows they replaced some system files too.

      So far I played it it's a great game! Considering the times I laughed out loud so far it was worth every cent!

      Looks like there is something wrong with the update files the launcher tries to download. This is the end of the launcher.log file on OS X 10.10.2.

      @A.A: You already got the box? How did they get it to you this quickly? Carrier dragons?

      Definitely the prettiest Kickstarter Edition of any of my games so far. I haven't received the thank you card yet, but the box is gorgeous. Only the holder for the Almanac should have been made using a sturdier material. I was also glad to see that the Critter plushie wasn't made in some Asian sweatshop. Using a German manufacturer was probably more expensive, but the working conditions were almost certainly better.

    17. A.A - The Dream Travelling Echidna $6.13 on

      Oh. My. God. King Art, you really have outdone yourselves. Wow.

      Just got my Kickstarter Almanac physical edition, along with the handpuppet and art books and I'm just blown away. Honestly, it's so beautiful. The BIG book-shaped cover, The Lord of Rings Extended Edition-style case, the lovely thick-but-compact art book (as well as the thinner-but-bigger kickstarter artbook), the Critter hand-puppet, the mouse pad...even the thank you card...honestly, I love it all! :D :D

      Honest to god, it's just left the biggest smile on my face. I don't back Kickstarters for the extras, but I have to say I love what's happened here.

      All backed up by a game that's even awesomer than the original.

      Best. Kickstarter. Ever. :D

      Thank you, King Art. Thank you thank you thank you.

      So happy right now. :)

      I'm squealing like a little girl (well, not really, but on the inside...).

      @Ed: have you received an automatic answer to your mail? It should have been in your inbox seconds after you filed the ticket. there's a link to see the state of the Ticket. If you haven't seen it, check your Spam-Folder. The Subject starts with 'Ticket Received -' followed by your given subject line. The sender is 'KING Art Games GmbH' If not create a new ticket.

      Wow, worst support ever. I sent a ticket to support four days ago. I do not have the download link and paid for the game. No one will get back to me. I feel like I supported this game early on and now I get no help. Terrible.

      I received the game today in the book shaped box and it's one of the most beautiful LE boxes I've ever had the pleasure to own. Thanks to all the fine folks at KING Art Games for such terrific packaging (and a great game to boot of course :)

    21. Maximilian Schmidt on

      Thank you for bringing us another part of the game, I'm really looking forward to play it once i finished "The Whispered World" and my exams. I'm already enjoying the OST wich came along with the 35$ Tier, but the album is missing a cover. Could you please make one with all the awesome art you created? Thanks!

    22. Michael R. on

      @Mirko: OK, it was just a guess, because the path and GoG does not yet offer the Linux version :-) And I forgot the physical boxes (after seeing the picture I'm sorry that I did not took one...)

      Eventually you should also post at the developer forum. Still it seems that there's low traffic. Not sure what's the best way to get such problems to KAG.

      @Ed: You requested the GoG key I assume? If so you should have received at least the automatic response beginning with 'Ticket Received' from KING Art Games GmbH. If you haven't seen it, check your spam folder. If you can't find it, something went wrong (typo in the mail address or something); you might open a new ticket and explain what happened. But if you received it, you can respond to that mail as it contain a link to check the status/add more information. Hope that helps. But keep in mind, here in Germany it's weekend and they had a big party I would say. Don't expect any response 'till tomorrow noon I would guess.

      Hope both of you get the problems sorted out soon!

    23. Mirko Guenther on

      @Michael, I've a Linux system running and try to update the 'Almanac Edition' installed from disk.

      I sent a ticket to support several days ago. I do not have the download link and paid for the game. No one will get back to me.

    25. Michael R. on

      Sorry for the doublepost.

      My problem seems to be a bit different. From what I can see is that the patching is actually done in the TMP folder ( c:\Users\Michael\AppData\Local\Temp\bout2\work\1.0.1_win\dst ). It seems to change from version ' DISC' to ' DISC' (see /data/version). Maybe it's because my game is installed on FAT32 which might have different file-handling in case of file in use.

      Since the patch seemed to be already there I took the risk and copied all files from the dst folder over my game and overwrote all files. And it seemed that it worked. No request to install an update. Lets hope everything else works fine.

      To your problme: Maybe you can see what your checksum is to help the Devs. In my case it is (for OSX use shasum instead):
      915d1790fe54ef776507cbd8bb21a1cac6c77d32 (should be after the patch)
      e93a93419c17c8d635ab3882297b2f7207f7f9a0 (prior the patch)

    26. Michael R. on

      @Mirko: It seems you're using OS X. It looks that there's a defective file. The 'Checksum Mismatch' indicates that there's something wrong with the file. As I have a similar problem but under Windows it might be that the update is corrupted. It could also that the Update can't handle the version we have installed. You have a GoG version I guess, could be possible that the GoG version is slightly different. But on the other end I would expect to see this issue more often...

      But this is a wild guess. Especially I haven't tried to get some more information why my Update fails. It just stops while show 'Applying ....'. It seems that the OS X version is more talktive.

    27. Mirko Guenther on

      It's there! :)
      But I've a problem with installing the latest upate. I get every time following error:

      Any idea what's gone wrong? Is it an problem on my system or is the patch corrupt?

    28. ThomasN on

      Felix: I have read somewhere there is a slight delay with the Linux version. I hope it gets resolved for you.

    29. Felix Schmeing on

      How can I get my DRM free Linux version? I already got my GOG Key but there's just Mac and Windows :(

    30. Andy Linea of Sin - DOoD on

      hmm, I wonder if the digital "making of" book is the same as the book in the Almanach edition?

    31. Andy Linea of Sin - DOoD on

      the book of unwritten sales :D,13/the-book-of-unwritten-tales-2,81659.html

      there is a shitty add there in German, but after that the Bout2 video is English

    32. Jamil Ismaili | Eternal Dreamer on

      Hey guys, just read the email about the game being released tomorrow. I've not yet run it; just wondering is the special edition stuff ready yet (the digital extended manual, soundtrack and making of) or are they still coming soon ? I'm on the $30 tier. Figured I might wait til it's all ready...

    36. Marin on

      Since Nordic Games is removing their whole catalogue from GOG. I wondered what will happen to the promised GOG copy.

      chapter 4 playing smoothly for me so far.I have finished playing as ivo and am about to start as nate.

    38. Russell Deitch on

      We now have Chapter 4.

      Bert on

      Hey, hope the development is going well. I'm playing bout 1 at the moment in anticipation and enjoying it. One thing I noticed is that if a character is in an animation (usually when getting 'impatient'; like looking around, tapping a foot or the like) the character only responds after the animation is complete. Quite noticeable in when in the cottage looking for the ring. Something to keep in mind for bout 2. Also, double click an item to skip the character walking to the object would be a great feature. Thanks for listening and good luck!

    40. James Patton on

      Hi there, any word on when chapter 4 will be released? Up until now the releases have always come within the first week of each month, but it's now December 14th and we haven't heard anything.

    41. Russell Deitch on

      @Geraldine, if you're on Steam, you can download a saved game from the developers.

    42. Geraldine Hollyman on

      Hello :) I started playing Chapter 1 but I'm having a bug the moment I start playing Critter (he just freezes doing an action and then I can't do anything). Who do I contact for support? :) I want to keep playing but I'm just stuck :(

    43. Russell Deitch on

      @Mark, there are two like that. If you do the fanbelt before the coal, you can't progress either.

      Mark Bauermeister on

      Beware of a game breaking bug in Chapter 3.
      When you play as Wilbur, don't tie the sandbag to the rope from inside the inventory.

      If you do, that sandbag will simply vanish and you'll be unable to progress any further.

    45. Russell Deitch on

      @mo54, are the credits working for you off the main menu?

    46. mo54 on

      chapter 3 playing like a dream with no glitches at all.

    47. Shiroco-Librarian of Unwritten Tales 542 on

      Holy crap! Never expected to see so many people having issues with that dance thing Oo. Luckily those minigames can be skipped most of the time.

    48. Shiroco-Librarian of Unwritten Tales 542 on

      Does anyone know where the weekly blogposts are?

    49. Russell Deitch on

      It looks like some problems were fixed in update #1. I've finished chapter 2 but one achievement is still locked and just shows +1 and the credits still don't display.
