Have a question?
There's lots of updates. I also checked comments and it seems lots of others are waiting on the digital files. I logged into my HumbleBundle account as instructed and saw this message for Armello:
"When available, you'll be able to get all your digital content listed below right here on your download page!
Your purchase of Armello - Scribe Tier gets you:
Armello, Cross-platform and DRM-Free
Digital Art Book
Digital Audio Books"
So I'm not sure which update I should look for which specifies if or when I'll be receiving the items above that I've pledged for.
@Dana Howdy! Have you seen our latest updates? We've spoken about it all quite a bit! As far as the art book is concerned, we've found a printer and distributor that we're happy with and they are in production.
Not long now, we're pumped.
<3 Darcy @ LoG
So I backed the following "Downloadable Art Book + Set of Armello Novellas featuring some illustrations (PDF/EPUB) + Access to the Beta (via Steam) + NEW AUDIO BOOKS"
This was over three years ago. I got the beta invite on steam (thanks?), but nothing else. Did anyone else back this tier? They keep releasing new expansions and sharing new art, but I never got the art book or audio books. 90% of the reason I backed this was because of the art.
@Robert It's a bummer you're not satisfied! We do our best to please as many folks as we can, but naturally resources are limited and game development is the wild wild west.
I'm not sure how closely you followed the campaign but the campaign was heavily focused on PC, with all of the rewards for different tiers directly intertwining with that platform. iPad was simply an extra thing.
We also have done our best to make it work on iOS devices but Armello has grown to be a big baby, so it's been a feat to get it working on just the more common ones! Hope you understand and thank you for your support. <3
This... was a very disappointing Kickstarter. It was coming to iPad and "also PC". Four years after funding and after it had been available for PC (and even consoles not talked about in the campaign) for quite some time, it finally stumbled quietly onto the apple store as a freemium game with no perks to backers. Not only that, but since it took so long to get there, the iPad that I had that was one generation behind during the kickstarter, is not even supported when Armello finally, eventually hit the apple store.
Glad I helped you make a game for others. I guess.
I know it’s late but just started playing this game, really enjoy it! Thanks :)
A friend of mine says that Armello has hit the Apple stores. Doesn't much matter to me, but backers holding out for an iPad version might be glad to hear that it's out.
It has been almost a year since "super close to finishing the art book", I am glad it wasn't far from finishing.
Great to hear about version 2.0 coming down the line; but any news about the art book and soundtrack since December? Hard to believe it's been almost 4 years!
It's nice how League of Geeks tricked GOG users with DLC and deleted their game from GOG catalog a few months ago. I will never support any of League of Geeks next projects. You are sick people.
I have moved since originally backing Armello at the art book level. Is there a way for me to update the address it should go to? Honestly, I can't remember if we've even provided shipping addresses yet, but it's better to be safe than sorry!
Thanks for your time. :)
BoboMcGraw, Ruinaes and Fong Lam, I've just looked into your missing keys and resent them to you via email, from me Blake. Just check your inboxes and you should be good now, if you have any questions get back to me directly via email and I'll sort you out :)
Ruinaes to get back to your question about Update#45's Plan we have stuck to it, with only the recent exception of releasing the Bandits after a much too long delay separately to the iPad release. The iPad release was simply holding everything up too much which we explain in our most recent updates - to give you an update on the iPad release it is coming, we are actively working hard on it now and making great progress.
I saw another question about the Art Book, it's almost done!! I even saw a pre-release draft this morning and it looks glorious - really we have gone way beyond and its far better than anyone will expect. We're just going through final proofing, lithographing etc...
Regarding the Novellas... they're written!! Yes they're all done, we're just queuing up the task of getting them prepared for distribution which is a task in itself. At this stage we're planning on releasing them around the same time as the iPad release of Armello.
There's a little bit more in our recent update here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/leagueofgeeks/armello-bringing-tabletop-adventures-to-life/posts/1870041
It would be fantastic if someone could take 10 minutes to respond to us. I've been burned by more video game kickstarters than I'd like to remember but this had been such a gem! I love the concept of tabletop and video coming together and the world is fantastic.
All of that is wasted though and leaves a bad taste in my mouth since LoG decided to crap all over it's backers. So.....anyone care to explain why the wonderful plan set forth in Update #45 simply no longer exists?
Some on Steam said they were emailed codes for the bandit clan in September. I haven't received any such email myself though.
I was a backer at the I <3 Guppy level, which should have included the Bandit Clan DLC. When should we be getting Steam codes (or what not)? Thank you.
When do we receive bandit clan codes for those of us that already paid in our pledges?
I see someone asked about the art book fairly recently. I was curious about that and the novellas.
We're super close to finalising the art book! Hold tight for more info. <3
Yes, any news on the art book?
Any word on the art book?
(Just leaving a message to say thanks for sorting it out. :D)
Hi team! Congrats the game is great :)
About the bandit pack... any change to buy as a dlc soon or late?
Hey @Mark M, shoot us an email at admin[at]leagueofgeeks.com with all your details and we'll check it out! Also search your email inbox for any emails you might have received from us.
season board/usurpers and sound track but not anything else, what should I do?
I haven't got any of my Bandit Clan or backer dlc yet, I got my physical reward a while ago as well as the game
Hi Omi & co,
There was an issue with Valve the other day and some Badges & Skins were rewarded incorrectly. They should be all back to normal now!
C.L.Schneeweiss: if you added Armello to your Steam account it'll be available on both Mac, PC or whatever machine you install Steam on!
Omi, I know what you speak of, don't worry about the dice and the badges, they are ours exclusively. They released tons of dice now that no one will care about the KS dice, and the badges are probably going the same route, tons of different ones. They can easily fix the mistake with the badges by simply making the ones they accidentally gave out irrelevant, and making new ones (that look the same but different IDs or something) that'll over write the old ones.
Ok well everyone in my group of folks who plays Armello got all the badges, but we mostly all backed at Bandit level, so that would grant a lot of higher level badges if suddenly opened. Also upon digging around on the LoG forums, there is a post from two years ago or so, mentioning something of a "collector's edition" (working title) that would indeed release EVERYTHING, including Kickstarter exclusive dice and such.
Plans change, and I just implore LoG to PLEASE PLEASE leave some exclusivity in cosmetic items that have no bearing on game play!
Please leave us Backers with a few small things that are exclusive to us for wanting to help get this game made.
Omi, it was definitely a mistake, because I -did not- get everything. I backed at the Guardian tier and they accidentally gave me everything above it. So I only got the Guardian and Hero Badges. It was probably a mistake in their code as simple as a swapped less-than or greater-than sign, since we were technically supposed to get the badges below our tier as well, not above. I have contacted them about it already too, they are aware.
Omi, myself and others have noticed this as well and I believe it is a mistake on their part, they're probably looking into it now. Hopefully it can be fixed. I don't think it was on purpose.
So upon the new update I see that they added new badges, and it seems they gave everyone, everything. I now own badges for Kickstarter tiers I didn't pledge. Is nothing going to be kept exclusive?? I dunno, I just don't feel right having a "Hero" badge, when I only pledged to get the Bandits, and the Hero's had to pledge $500+
What next, will the "exclusive" green Kickstarter dice be given out too?
I get the Bandit clan thing, and not keeping them exclusive, since they have different skills and what not, but giving free access to even now all of the cosmetic items, which have no affect on game play, and still made us feel a tiny bit special, just wow.
I was a backer at the $35 level but still have never played, not enjoying my Steam experience on an Apple computer; but months/year(s) later now that I have a proper PC I'd like to play on, is there a way to access my old code at all? Thank you very much! Weird I know.
Hi there ! Does anyone know where the artbook and novellas can be downloaded ? Thanks !
Enjoying the game...haven't played Usurper, but I did get my guppy, and he's cute.
Any reason why the European release for the Usurper-DLC on the PS4 is delayed?
Very pleasantly surprised to get the email about the Usurper DLC, also want to echo others compliments on the high quality of the guppy plush, it's far nicer and larger than I was expecting! Great job! Thanks! ^_^
Myself and a group of friends who all play saw the tweets and posts that Guppy was for sale in your webstore, and were instantly disappointed we hadn't even gotten ours yet. It was a few days later we finally started getting shipping notifications (all originally with someone else's info to boot). I wouldn't call that available for sale after getting it to Backers. How about making sure people had started getting him first?
We're all happy now that our Guppy's have arrived, and yes, he is of better quality than expected.
Still guys, show a little more love to your backers, and dedication to getting them their rewards first, before going on sale to the public. We're really not feeling the love over here :(
My Guppy arrived, and he is adorable. (Though he looked like he was having another one of his misadventures all squished in his plastic bag, I cut him out and he has recovered well.)
Guppy was of a far greater quality than I had expected, and larger too! Thank you.
Guppy arrived today and now he is helping me making wise decisions...
Wonderful little fella!
@Vanessa Frei thanks for your feedback however; the Guppy Plushy's were available for purchase AFTER our providers had shipped out our Backers orders.
@Brad TruLove to activate the Guppy skin; head to your Card Gallery and click on the Squire :)
Hi Guppy Plushy peeps,
The creators and distributors of the Guppy Plushy, Fanfiber, sent out an incorrect email that you can ignore. You should’ve since received a new email with the correct details. Rest assured that they have all been sent to the correct locations, but please let us know if you have any further concerns!
Hello, I too received an email for the tracking addressed to somebody else and the second email that came through addressed to me, the tracking number was not found.
I also have a shipping notice to a person who isn't me. Is this something we should notify someone of?
I have a shipping confirmation in my email as well for a guppy plush for "Steve Avellone" - that's definitely not me so I hope my guppy plush is also on the way....
Kinda disappointed it took 2+ years to get made and apparently it's already available to buy online before backers even get theirs? Okay :/
I received a shipping confirmation in my email today for the guppy plushy addressed to a Steven Kane, who is not me. I have no idea where to even start with trying to correct that, any advice would be very appreciated :)
Really just disappointed.
You guys need a dedicated rewards fulfillment/merch person or something.
We are going on over TWO YEARS since your project was funded. I can understand the game side of things, but that's a really long time to be waiting for rewards.
It was a large enough blow when you guys went back on your word of the Bandit Clan being a Kickstarter exclusive, caving in to the whining of others, but quite frankly it's a slap in the face to offer your Guppy plush for sale to anyone who wants one, BEFORE you've shipped them all out to your backers.
Your faithful Backers, whom without your game would not have been funded, really look like an after thought.
If I didn't love the game as much as I do, I'd want a refund too. I would likely not back another project by your group ever in the future.
So the guppy plushie reminded me that I have never seen the guppy card, I have the KS exclusive dice and everything else, and in the followers I have seen 16/17 cards so I assume he is the last one. I have read I need to equip him, does anyone know where and how to do this?
