      Thank you, I see the change on backerkit! :)

    2. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Szepes - I have made the change for you. You should have received an email confirmation confirming this change, if not you can check your backer kit account to see it. Either way, you are all set. Thanks!

    3. Szepes Nóra on

      PS4 Europe, if you need a specific region. :)

      Hi @Ragtag! I was wondering if I could get a PS4 version instead of Steam. I don't have a PC anymore and I'd love to play this on PS4 instead. So I'm almost in a similar boat as Braden Allchin just 2 comments before me. Hope you can help me too! Thanks.

    5. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Braden - Not a problem at all! I've made the change for you. If you log in to your Backer Kit account you will see it has been done. Happy to make this change in either direction for any of our backers. I'll also send you a direct message to let you know this is done in case you don't check the comments for a while. Thanks!

      @Ragtag I’m also in a similar boat as an earlier backer - I’ve sold my PS4 and would love to change my backing to be for a Steam key. It appears I can’t change it on BackerKit. Hopefully you can help!

    7. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Charles - Probably won't be until July. We are chasing a white hot deadline! Wish us luck!

    8. Charles Adams on

      Hopefully we are getting an update soon?

    9. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Steve - Nothing that we can share just yet. Sorry about that! But we will have a new update early next week. Thanks for your patience!

    10. Steve Norman on

      Is there any kind of updated timeline or ETA?

    11. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Charles - We plan to post another update in a couple of weeks when we complete our next milestone. Thanks for your interest!

    12. Charles Adams on

      Been a couple of months anything new to share?

    13. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Steven - Yessir! We will have one before too much longer. Just getting back into the swing of things after the new year and we have a few more things we would like to wrap up before posting another update. We always have updates in the back of our mind but just want to be sure we have enough content worthy of an update. Much of what we have been doing isn't terribly exciting so it makes updates feel lackluster.

      Thanks for the comment!

    14. Steven Isham on

      A New Year maybe a new update?

    15. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Brent - Thanks so much! I'm glad someone with Linux is playing the game (or trying to) because we haven't been able to try it yet. Sorry you aren't able to play it though.

    16. Brent Rose

      @Chris - Ok - sent. I did manage to get it started (Linux) and wrote up what I had to do and the issues I've found so far.


    17. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Brent - That doesn't sound good! Please email me at chris (at) ragtagstudio (dot) com and I'll make sure its looked at. Thanks Brent!

    18. Brent Rose

      @Ragtag Studio - where do we post bug reports if the game won't start?

    19. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @majigga - Of course. I've just updated your BackerKit page and changed you from the PS4 version to the Steam version. Thanks!

      When I originally backed this project, I think I asked for a PS4 copy. I do not own a PS4 anymore. Would it be possible to received a steam key instead

    21. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Tiso - We are going to post a new update very soon. It won't include a release date but we are hoping to include a nice surprise.

      I know I've been telling you for a while that we are going to get to requesting assets from you and the other backers that have their likeness in game, and it hasn't happened yet. Its just a matter of when it becomes a priority to our lead artist. I always feel like we are very close to that point but more and more things come up! He has been spending the vast majority of his time working with our environment contractors to keep them busy. its paying off big time but its extremely time consuming for him. That said, I hope to make it a priority after we complete this current goal we are working on.

      We would love to release on Switch, but we have to fulfill our obligations with Sony first. After that, the sky's the limit!

    22. Tiso Spencer

      Hey any updates on the release and custom character content? I wanted to be current since my look (which I'm bald) is the only change I'm interested in. Everything else from what I wanted to wear is still fine. Also as always looking forward to the release.

      Hopefully a Switch release sometime after?

    23. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Evan - I know you have been patient, and its much appreciated. Not only that, but I interpret your last few comments as a demonstration of your enthusiasm - which is also very much appreciated!

    24. Evan Schwartz on

      @Ragtag Studio
      Thanks for the offer, but the only thing I really wanted was access to the alpha and for you guys to take another crack at getting that RTD promo hat into Team Fortress 2 when it comes time for the game's release (as we discussed July 5th 2016). If you look back through the comments you'll see that I have been one of the backers that have been understanding and encouraging. I'd say that most of the backers have been. But in my experience with past Kickstarter projects that have had major delays, backers stop becoming understanding when you finally have content/products to release but only give it to a select few. Maybe I'm wrong and the 1,491 out of 1,616 backers won't be upset that they won't have access when content is finally available, and will remain understanding and encouraging. I guess time will tell.

    25. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Evan - I don't want anyone to be upset at all. There are a few that are frustrated at how long it has taken us but the overwhelming majority have been very understanding and encouraging because we have done our best to keep everyone updated along the way.

      I also don't want you to be upset. Feel fee to email me at chris (at) ragtagstudio (dot) com and let me know what I can do to make you happy. Thanks.

    26. Evan Schwartz on

      @Ragtag Studios
      Only 125 of your 1,616 backers pledged for Alpha Access. Those 125 backers also got additional rewards along with access to the Alpha like skins, concept art, tshirts, and custom characters. With the extras they got and with how long we've all been waiting, I doubt there will be much complaining if you gave everyone access. And even if some of them do complain, is it better to have 125 backers slightly upset that they didn't get exclusive early access, or have 1,491 backers upset that you continue to make them wait, even with the release of content?

    27. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Evan - While that is a nice idea and we would like to make everyone happy, I don't think the backers that paid extra to get Alpha access would be very happy about that.

      Sorry you are feeling frustration. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to put you at ease. We are doing our best to get the game out as soon as possible.

    28. Evan Schwartz on

      @Ragtag Studio
      This Kickstarter campaign ended over three years ago and the estimated delivery of the game was over two years ago. At this point, don't you think you should give ALL backers access to the Alpha when you release it?

    29. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Ian - We want the next update to be the announcement of the backer Alpha and we still have a couple of more weeks to go before that's ready. We are only posting updates when there is significant progress or news to share. From my experience its counterproductive to have frequent updates without much substance. Hope you agree with that! Always happy to answer questions here if anyone ever doubts that we are still alive. :)

    30. Ian Gaudreau on

      Will we be getting a new update soon?

    31. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @redrum666 - We still plan to support the Vita, but will not be able to concentrate on the port until the port for the PS4 and PC versions are complete.

      Johnathan Gresham on

      Looking forward to this game. Have been since it was announced and I backed it so many years ago. Glad to see it is coming to fruition. Keep on keepin' on, Ragtag Studio!!

    35. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Andrei - Fun ideas! I like the idea of Ray having a pet, but I think Ray already has enough companions following him around!

      I will definitely be putting in memorials to some important aspects of my life. Thanks for the comment.

    36. Andrei_Sparrow on

      Ray's the Cecil from the dead inside the game. Let us have one pet companion with us)) Or at least make a memorial tombstone for Cecil, in some peaceful quiet area. Whoever of RAGTAG team is the owner of the dog - you owe it to him.

      It's been a month since the last comment. Any news?

    38. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Alex - We are a couple of weeks away from completing a major milestone. As soon as that is in the books a new update will appear. Thanks for your patience!

    39. Alex Forbes on

      Can we get another update?

    40. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Michael - Posted an update two days ago. Check it out here:

    41. Michael

      Just checking in to see what's up with the Dead.

    42. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      I will be posting an update tomorrow. Nothing earth shattering, just want to share some progress since its been a while.

      @Vinzius - I'll mention that in tomorrows update since several people have been asking.

    43. Vinzius

      Do you plan to release the game on the Switch?

    44. Javier Bedford on

      anything excited to share yet?

    45. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Tiso - Planning to do one any day now. Just waiting on a couple of art assets that I can include in the update. Sorry its been so long!

    46. Tiso Spencer

      Any update with March being over without a update?

    47. Tracey Craig


      Absolutely no rush, take your time :)

    48. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Javier - Sorry, still no news to share on release date. We are burning the midnight oil to complete a Mid March milestone. We'll post a new update after that. Though it still will not have any info on release dates. Sorry I don't have better news for you just yet.

    49. Javier Bedford on

      any news on release date?

    50. Ragtag Studio 2-time creator on

      @Albert - We would love nothing more than to release RTD on the Switch, and there has been mutual interest from both team RTD and Nintendo. No matter what we do, we have to release on PC and PS4 first, as we have a short exclusivity agreement with Sony. After that, if the game sells well enough to justify releasing on other platforms, we will be very happy to do so.

      BTW, we will be posting another update in the next few days to show what we've been up to. Thanks everyone!
