@John - I understand it can be frustrating not to get an on-time fulfillment, but that does happen with Kickstarter campaigns more often than not. But if you're going to be critical, try to be accurate. The estimated release was December 2016. Thus, delivery hasn't been pushed back by 2 years. At least not yet. Not even a year and a half at this point. I've received other rewards more than a year and a half late. It's not unheard of, especially with technological or digital endeavors. You have to be patient when it comes to Kickstarter campaigns. It comes with the territory. Monomyth Games has kept us in the loop with detailed updates along the way, which I appreciate. It's more than I've gotten with some campaigns here. Hang in there.
@Chris Z.: We can take you off the key list to wait for a potential Switch release if you like, but just so you know we're in the very very early stages of thinking about port releases, so as you mentioned ports might not happen at all!
@Ed Lopez: We've sent you a message to try and work out what going wrong. :)
Still getting a unityplayer error. Can’t figure out what’s wrong. Can someone please contact me?
Lol! Clients? We are not clients!!!
By chance, can I hold off and receive a Switch code. Willing to wait and even risk not getting a code if it never makes it =P
@Monomyth Games congratulations on the “May” release date. It’s not like you have been pushing this back for 2 years now. Thanks for being fair and reliable with your clients.
@Lord Soren & @John: We’ve been working out some final logistics for release, and have been holding off so we can announce a specific date - we're excited to say that we’ll be announcing a full release date this week. Thanks to everyone for your patience, we’re nearly there!
Well, It is half way through May and still no news. Are you planning on surprising us or is it not going to be released this May?
Well, its next month... *rubs hands together in anticipation*
Alright, thanks for letting us know! Keep up the good work y'all.
@Layton Funk: We're still confident about a May release - we still have a number of things or organise in the meantime though, so we won't have a specific date until next month.
We're full steam ahead over here, and are excited about getting the game into your hands!
So, what's the release date?
@Iván Dasilva: Unfortunately not - early access is only available for backers from Clearance Levels 9 to 0. You'll get a Humble link for the full game closer to the full release, which is planned for May :)
@Trystan Rufford: Good to hear it's working!
Doh! I just saw it in the downloaded files.
I keep getting a unityplayer.dll error. Has anyone had this problem and a fix? Thanks!
With the "CLEARANCE LEVEL 10", do I have access to the beta?
Thanks in advance! :D
@Stéphanie Leder: As a CL10 backer, you'll get a Humble link for the game closer to release, which is planned for May - you'll be able to download it there!
Hi, i didn't come here for a long time, is someone can tell me how can i download my pledge ?
@Wesley Blackwood - we'll have a Kickstarter update out in the next couple of days, and we have already released a new version o the game (v0.8.2) in the meantime!
Anything for mid month ?
Whoops, accidental ‘Post’ click!
@Eric Shook: Good to hear - we’ll still keep an eye on it just in case.
@Eric Shook: Ah, good to hear - we’l still kee
Strike that... It's working...
V.8.2 only allowing you to mark 1 piece of evidence per suspect with Blacksheep... Causing regularly missed evidence.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/491950/Orwell_Keeping_an_Eye_On_You/ here’s a game that’s very similar to hold everyone over
@Wesley Blackwood: We’ll be releasing another update to the game in the coming week, with with a new Kickstarter update incoming too. We’ve been working on more bugfixes and improvements, as well as adding a bunch of new content; we’ll have more on this in the update! 😊
@Dimitrios Tsaknakis: Hi Dimitrios, thanks for your bug reports, and apologies for the delay in responding! We’ve now fixed the crashing issue (in v0.8.2, which is coming in the next week).
As for the conversations in home mode – you should be able to access different dialogue options when you’ve seen the information you need to answer the questions. We’ll have this fixed in the upcoming update!
Any updates ?
Another thing that is very confusing is when ur access the network at night, and you find information about relatives etc that could be relevant to help them.
Are you supposed to do something with that?
Like when you can find Alanna for example, you later get a text from your aunt asking if you know where she might be, which you do, but there was no option to answer that?
Or when you find that your sister needs money to pay her rent or she will get kicked out, again no option to do anything? Like is there a point to finding this out if you cant do anything with it?
I keep getting a crash after I played for about 30-40 mins, it says "too many heaps", it gives me a crash log and offers to open a directory, but even if I click yes the directory wont open.
@Wesley Blackwood: Absolutely - we're working as hard as we can towards a May release. You can read more in our latest Kickstarter update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/monomythgames/need-to-know-the-mass-surveillance-thriller-game/posts/2096885
Is this game ever coming out ?
@patrick bakker: The flickering in the prologue scene is intentional - we'll have to make this clearer/less distracting in future releases. Thanks for the bug reports - we'll get those issues fixed!
- the flickering is still there but only in the intro when clicking thru 2034
- also when using the magnifying tool in the game you cannot use blacksheep anymore, it says the person has already been found.
- when using the blacksheep tool on one suspected hit or person, you cannot use it again as it is only applied to the last one.
@Daniel Csvany: Yes, feel free to report bugs here! You can also send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for that report - we'll look into the problem.
As for the logo image, we can easily sort that out - cheers for letting us know about it!
@Dirk Schoeters & @Helge Rasmussen: No worries - we've re-sent your Humble links through a Kickstarter message.
I missed the beta mails I think or maybe its not available for me? I am a backer at level 8.
Hi, I would like to know where I can download the game as a backer?
Is this the place for reporting bugs? The music cannot be turned down nor adjusted on this new 0.8.1 release. Secondly, I know I'm asking alot from you on this. But Can you complete this for Twitch.tv https://help.twitch.tv/customer/en/portal/articles/2348988-adding-a-game-and-box-art-to-the-directory. I do not want to get into trouble with you on adding this to the game directory and have it screwed up.

@Ben: Just for clarity, our original expected release was December 2016, just over a year ago, not two. But it’s a fair point – the problem for us is that some backers have paid extra to try the game before the full release, so we need to be fair to those backers, while getting the full game to remaining backers as soon as we can. We’re really sorry for the delays, and we’re trying our best to get the game to you as quickly as possible, without compromising quality unnecessarily.
@Kris: The links were sent out before the alpha release in 2016, and some seem to have been caught by spam filters and lost! No worries though, we’ve re-sent your link to you – check your Kickstarter inbox 😊
Hi. I have clearance level 8. How do I access the beta download? Is there an email link I missed? Thank you for the help in advance
Yeah, but Clearance Level 10 backers were also told the game would be released _two years ago_ at this point. This is ridiculous!
@Paul Toderas: As a Clearance Level 10 backer, you unfortunately don't receive access to the beta, but you'll get a Humble link to download the full game as we get closer to release.
Can you please send me the code as well?
@Joel & @Anton Vinchel: We've re-sent your links to your Kickstarter inbox. :)
@Patrick Bakker: Thanks so much for that - we'll look into the issue!
Never received the email with the code or instructions how to download the early release. Please provide one.
Send you an email to the contact adress on your monomyth games site with a video of the flickering, its from the moment you press any key to continue
Can you re-send my link, can't find it.
@Matthew & @Adam Smillie: Re-sent! :)
@Patrick Bakker: That's not too good - which parts of the screen are flickering, is it the map or other parts of the UI?
