      Many thanks for your quick reply.

      Like all Kickstarter backers, I look forward to the goodies.

      Hello David,

      I'm very glad to hear you are eager to play Wailing Heights.

      The game is currently not published anywhere DRM free (our only public build was built with Steam integration), so it will take a small bit of work and time to make it available.

      The good news is that you won't have to wait until Jennifer Wilde is complete, and we expect to be sending out Wailing Heights before then.

      We'll update when we have a definitive timeline!

      - Stephen

      May I refer you to our exchange last October :

      Hi David,
      The Wailing Heights comics do not exist in physical form as-yet.
      The Physical Collector's edition does come with physical Jennifer Wilde comics, and we will also provide the Wailing Heights game, WH Digital soundtrack, WH PDF comics and WH artbook at that tier, all as DRM-free downloads.

      I am another who will not use Steam. I would increase my pledge if I could get Wailing Heights DRM-free. Even more if I could get the soundtrack and PDF comic book for Wailing Heights without using Steam. Can you make this possible, please?
      I don't suppose the Wailing Heights comic exists in physical form - I would even consider the Physical Collector's Edition if it could.
      ---------------------------------------------------------------
      Would it be possible to distribute to those entitled to the DRM-free digital content from Wailing Heights now (like the game itself)? Presumably some of it (if not all) is already available and therefore there is no need for us to wait until the end when all the other Jennifer Wilde rewards are ready. It would give us something to do while we wait patiently.

      Going great! Proper update incoming this week! :D

      Well, I can confirm that Kickstarter has taken our money. Well done chaps, best of luck with development.

      Thanks Daniel.

      Only 2 hours left!!

      Congrats on getting funded! Looking forward to seeing how high it goes!

      Thanks Prisoner, Frodo. It is possible we can supply GOG codes, but that will depend on whether we are accepted by the store.

      Oh brilliant! You added DRM-free option! ( :

      I saw this at the beginning of your Kickstarter.

      Loved it, but didn't back it because you only mentioned steam, and I don't like steam & steam-DRM.

      Now you added DRM-free, I can support you.

      Thanks, let's see if we can make it to that!

      Congrats on the funding. Surely the English Voice Acting stretch goal is within reach.

    18. Outsider Games Creator on

      Thanks Andrew, let's see how far we can reach!

    19. Andrew Luke on

      YESH! Those are great stretch goals.

      HUZZAH! We are funded. Thanks very much to all our backers!

    23. BillyGoat Entertainment on

      Ha, well done Stephen and co, let's see if we can push this a little higher!

    24. Outsider Games Creator on

      99%!! Who is going to bring us over our target?!

    25. Outsider Games Creator on

      We up to 95% and 3 days to go!

      It might be time to add some stretch goals. We have some ideas in mind, but would like to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

    27. Outsider Games Creator on

      That's great to hear Maxwell, I was hoping the interview would reach the adventure game community. Great to see it on the front page!

    28. Maxwell Horse on

      Well, the front page feature on Adventure Gamers helped bring in at least one more pledge (me). I love the hand-drawn aesthetic to this.

      We can do this Ladies and Gentlemen! Let’s push this brilliant game to the finishing line!

      Thanks Matthew. We have just 3 days to make sure it happens!

    32. Outsider Games Creator on

      Thanks for the continued support! With just 5 days to go, we've added an update with a campaign update, new interviews and photos of puppies!

    33. Screampunk Arts on

      I really hope this one makes its goal, it's such a nice take on the point & click genre!

    34. David Dew on

      I hope you get a good boost from the shout-out in the latest HM SPIFFING Kickstarter update I have just received. The tea bag was such a (pleasant) surprise from them for those getting physical rewards.

    35. Outsider Games Creator on

      That's no problem David, we'll be sending out a survey at the end (assuming we meet our goal), so backers can choose the version they would like.

    36. David Dew on

      BTW, I shall be wanting the Linux versions of the games. Thanks again.

    37. David Dew on

      Many thanks for your quick reply.

      Deal done - pledge upgraded to Physical Collector.

      If you don't ask, you don't get!

      Hey guys,

      I love art and atmosphere of your game so much. Hope we can hit the goal.
      Told a little bird about it and now its fluttering :)

      My best wishes

    41. Outsider Games Creator on

      Hi Erika,

      Thanks for asking, but the comics are expensive to print and ship, so in order to raise funds towards production of the game, we can only include them in the Physical Collector's Edition.

      If anything changes, we will let you know!

    42. Erika Eby on

      Is there any way you guys would consider offering the physical comics as an add on or offering a tier with the physical comics that's not the collector's edition? I know physical rewards are a pain, but figured it doesn't hurt to ask. :)

      Hi Ignaz, Yes that is correct. I will add an update to the project soon letting people know about the DRM free option.

      Thanks for backing!

      Just to be safe: I guess the physical copy of the Physical Collector's Edition will be DRM free (i.e. not require Steam to install or play the game) and contain the game for all three platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows), correct?

      Thanks Michael!
