      Hi there.
      It's me Stelios again. I have been tracking the Cognition package with the id (LJ155971983US) you sent me and for some reason it is shown to be delivered in Watertown. Could the id be wrong? I would appreciate it if you checked again.

      Hello Marcin! We are indeed--in fact, we sent them out back when Episode 4 released. If you didn't receive yours (we used a mailing list, so it's possible it got caught in spam), email support@postudios.com and we'll get you hooked up. :)

      As I heard Cognition is going to be release in Steam. Are you planning to have steam keys for kickstarter backers? (I don't have a problem if no - just wondering :) )

      THANKS. Got your email (riddle I didn't get your other ones) . And the post office made the mistake here, so I am sorry. First they said they had received nothing, but with the date you gave me (already arrived early Feb) they found it. Very happy now and thanks again :-)))

      Hi W.G.--I actually did write back both times, I'm not sure why it isn't getting to you. I'll message you via Kickstarter and hopefully that will work.

      Same here. 200 tier was supposed to ship by the end of January? Wrote twice to katie@postudios.com, but sadly no response.

      Hi there. Have all physical packages been sent? I still haven't received mine. Since I live in Greece I expected a delay, but now it seems like it has been far too long since the update. Any information would be welcome.

      Creator Phoenix Online Studios on January 23

      Glad they've arrived Minh! Yeah, as mentioned in a recent update, the glossy material on the CD case wouldn't take any ink, so we did signed posters for everyone instead. :) http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/postudios/cognition-an-erica-reed-thriller/posts/693428

      I got my package today, but with a difference. Instead of a having my hardcopy soundtrack album signed, I got my poster signed. I guess that is fair enough. :)

      Received my reward 2 days ago. I think I've deduced 2 of the signatures on the poster, but the 3rd one remains a mystery (for now).

      Backed this project to push us over 31K. I have much love for Sierra On-Line, Jane Jensen and fan-made projects like The Silver Lining. My passion extends to the Gabriel Knight series, Gray Matter and Heavy Rain. It's impossible for me not to support this project, this is exciting.

      Hi everyone--thanks for your support and your comments! :)

      For the recent questions about Steam: as we haven't gotten to the point of talking to Steam yet, we don't know the answer to that. But we'll see what happens when we get to that point and what we can work out.

      Creator Ali Yumusak on November 14, 2011

      Yes, please guys if you reach your goal.which I hope you do please release it on Steam. I would also prefer my DD key to be Steamworks.

    44. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Draco Whitefire on November 14, 2011

      I'm curious. You plan to add Steamworks to the game. Will the digital download for backers be a Steam product key? I'd really prefer that, to be honest.

    45. Kittygaot.small.small

      Creator Palindrome Bob-XSF-I'm in AGL589-AA496 on November 13, 2011

      If the rate at which the funding is going currently keeps up, the goal will be reached in no time. This is the first time I can put my appreciation of what POS is doing in money. Glad you gave me that chance.
