First day is over! :D (Update on digital copies, incoming patch, and Reddit AMA tomorrow!)

It’s been over one whole day since release! Feels more like five minutes though, and we’re not really resting yet!

To know that the game is actually out feels incredible! We’ve also received some really great responses, and are having a blast watching Twitch streamers :D GameInformer just called the game “an impressive feat in video game storytelling. It leaves more of an impact in a distilled 3 to 4 hours than some games with 60-hour campaigns". We sincerely hope some of you’ve had time to play it as well, and that you also enjoy the experience! We sure can’t wait to start making the awesome DLC in cooperation with you soon :)

The office is still teeming with life! Above averagely stoked krill, going about their post-release business.

Patch incoming!

Since release, we’ve been working to improve any issues that have been brought to our attention. The new patch is being uploaded right now, and your game should soon be updating automatically :) For the curious, here are the patch notes for the update!

We'll continue updating and improving on the game going forward, so please use this form if you encounter any issues!

Issue with the digital copies of the game?

We were bummed to hear that many backers did not receive their digital copies immediately at launch yesterday. These problems were apparently due to some technical issues, but the lovely people at Humble solved this, and say all keys should be delivered now. :)

If you for some reason are still waiting for a key, they recommended trying this tool. If this doesn’t work, let us know on contact@krillbite.com and we’ll work something out! And again, thanks for your great patience!

If it's any consolation: we've also implemented a backer treat in tomorrows Patch! :D

Luckily, something we do have control over, is the GAME! So we’ve included a treat especially for you in tomorrows patch!

In the ‘Controls’ menu, assign a button to ‘Console’ at the bottom. Press the assigned key in-game, and enter the password “BackerBlocks” in the window, before pressing enter. Press the assigned key again to hide the console-window, and press ‘B’ to let the fun commence. There are also other neat things you’ll be able to do with the console, but we’ll let you explore those on your own :D (PS: This might also be an advantage in a competition we’re running during tomorrows AMA)

Reddit AMA tomorrow!

Tomorrow evening at 10am PST / 5pm GMT we’ll be doing an AMA over at reddit.com/r/games! Here you’ll be able to talk to us directly, about anything about the game, development, release, thoughts, anything really.

I find Sveins proof picture and invite pretty sensual:

 We'll be in touch shortly, and hope to see you in the Reddit AMA tomorrow!

Until next time,

      @Tim Calderwood - Could you try using the tool in another browser? Some users have reported the tool not working in certain browsers. Send us a private message if you still can't get your keys, and we'll sort it out.

      @Jax Pierson - The soundtrack is not quite finished yet, but should be available through Humble Bundle when it is. We'll let you know!

      @Christina Franks - The patch might not had been uploaded to Humble Bundle at the time of writing, but you should be able to get it from there now. Send us a private message if you are still experiencing problems, and we'll look into it!

      @Hadbabits - We are indeed working on a fix!

    2. Creator Tim Calderwood on June 8, 2014

      Hi there, I never did receive my Digital copy of the game :( and the Tool linked in the email did not work, please let me know what to do about it now. THanks!

    3. Creator Jax Pierson on June 6, 2014

      Was the Humble key supposed to include the soundtrack download, too? I have the game, but I can't find anything in the download for the digital soundtrack...

    4. Creator ScaniX - Silent / Friendly / Axe owner on June 6, 2014

      The game ran very smoothly for me. Did you try to lower the quality settings? It started with highest settings on my machine, maybe the default setting is somehow calculated too high for your laptop.
      The version 1.0.1 wasn't available through HB the last time I checked, but they promised an update a few days ago. :)

    5. Creator Christina Franks on June 6, 2014

      How do I get version 1.0.1 of the game? I have downloaded the game via direct link from HB, unzipped it, and got the game started up. But the "backerblocks" thing isn't working for me (probably because my game version is 1.0.0 and based on comments here about that). I also got a Steam key from my HB page, but the game won't download from Steam probably because I have already downloaded it from HB. So where and how do I get v.1.0.1?

      I can't get the game to progress through the animated intro. All I have been able to do with the VERY jerky arms of the baby is move the abacus beads. In fact, all of the motion and movement in this game so far is very jerky, which is frustrating. And my laptop exceeds the computer reqs for this game. What am I doing wrong? And I really would like to get the backerblocks thing to work too. I am frustrated because I can't get the baby to get out of its chair from the table with the cake on it in the very beginning if the game. I am an avid gamer, but this is making me feel stupid. Any help, answers, and guidance to get me started would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Oi, you got a fix coming so us Linux users can play too? :P

    7. Creator David Ross Watson on June 1, 2014

      I just finished the game. I don't want to post any spoilers so all I'll say was you had me fooled and at the moment of revelation a few tears ran down my face as I realised what real horror is to a child. It's a story that hurts to hear and I'm not sure I "enjoyed" your game in the traditional sense - but I respect it a great deal for how carefully you used the lies of illusion to tell a deep truth. I am so glad I backed and wish you guys all the acclaim you deserve.

      Kind Regards,
      David.

      P.S. ~ I exited through the in-game pause menu from a chapter I had selected (the 1st chapter) and it wiped my progress. Luckily I had already finished the game.
      Running on Version 1.0.1 - NOT 1.0.0 - I made sure of that.

    8. Creator David Erosa on June 1, 2014

      Also, for the "Console" key. It you check the "Gamepad" option, the console won't work in game.

    9. Creator Aaron Burke on June 1, 2014

      For anyone who doesn't see the option to set a key for 'Console', try clicking "Reset to Defaults" in the Controls screen first. I had a lot more configuration options show up once doing that (and I'm on 1.0.1, launching for the first time).

    10. Creator Russell Deitch on May 31, 2014

      For anyone that missed the answer to Espen's question in the main comments thread -
      backerblocks - all lower case and no ".

    11. Creator ScaniX - Silent / Friendly / Axe owner on May 31, 2014

      I have never ever received a mail from HumbleBundle about new additions, I am always using the key resender which works fine. :)
      Will the HumbleBundle Version be updated at the same time as the Steam one? I think I cannot wait to finish the game anyway and will do so with version 1.0.0. :D

    12. Creator Steve Mooradian on May 31, 2014

      @Espen - Make sure you're still not on version 1.0.0.

    13. Creator Espen Schjønneberg on May 31, 2014

      "Invalid command "BackerBlocks". Closest match: reload. What to do? :)

    14. Creator Steve Mooradian on May 31, 2014

      Was HumbleBundle also supposed to supply my digital copy of the soundtrack? I had to use the "resend key" method and only got a copy of the game, not the soundtrack. (LULLABY)

    15. Creator Mark on May 30, 2014

      There still is no link to retrieve the game on GOG. Any idea when that option will be available?

    16. Creator Jory Prum on May 30, 2014

      Humble failed to send me my key. But using the https://www.humblebundle.com/… tool got it to me within a minute or two.

      Don't wait to see if Humble is going to send you a key; just go run that tool right away and go play the game!

    17. Creator Krillbite Studio on May 30, 2014

      Did you try pasting your e-mail here @Emily? https://www.humblebundle.com/…

    18. Creator Emily Puente on May 30, 2014

      I also have received nothing from Humble. I have checked my email, including going through a week of junk mail.

    19. Creator Kyle Taylor on May 30, 2014

      I also found you can hit "claim past orders" on the top of your humble library and you'll find it.

    20. Creator Krillbite Studio on May 30, 2014

      @Marie-Andree No key yet?! Did you try the link as well? https://www.humblebundle.com/…

    21. Creator Marie-Andree Poisson on May 30, 2014

      Nice to know because I have received no keys from Humble!
