Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
The box of course.
I paid 250$, and I want my big box.
@Tore: What are you referring to - the PC game (in order to play it) or the box sets that were available at higher tiers? The PC game has been released in episodes since 2014, with the final cut coming out last year.
Still waiting for this.
How come the console versions have been out for ages?
We contributed with our money to the development of this game, yet we get treated like crap and have to wait endlessy.
Thanks for the link Astral :)
@Ashley Mackay: "Will you guys let us know (via email) when our packages will be shipped out. If so, is there tracking on the packages by any chance?"
From update 113 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/redthread/dreamfall-chapters-the-longest-journey/posts/2132785 :
"...The first 1500 boxes will be leaving our office shortly, en route to our $110 tier backers. If that's you, you'll receive another email with more details next week..."
No word on tracking there but given the value involved, I would presume it to be available.
Pls forgive me if this has been asked/answered in the comments already but - Will you guys let us know (via email) when our packages will be shipped out. If so, is there tracking on the packages by any chance? Thanks! :)
@Matthew... this linked was posed in the latest update for exactly this question:
So any news on how to correct whatever address you guys have on file for the physical collection, considering I've moved twice three times or so since the original pledge?
Any news yet on the physical collector item I paid for??
I just finished the game and I wanted to let the developers know that I really enjoyed it. It was great to come back to a story that meant a lot to me when i first played TLJ in the early 2000s. The dialog was refreshingly adult and humorous. The voice acting was really well done, and especially impressive with the amount of it that there was. The environments and charter models looked great even if some of the animations were a bit rough. I hope the game sold well enough for you to be able to start a new project. I'll be looking forward to it.
Doug: You can still change your address by logging onto https://dreamfall.backerkit.com/.
Prodigious: It's not possible to change the physical order to a PS4 game, because PS4 is not included in the kickstarter in any way. Everyone wanting a PS4 game has to buy it separately..
Still wondering if I can change my physical order to a PS4 game instead of PC
Does red Raven respond to anyone? My address has changed since the 4 years since I backed this.
Months and months of waiting and still no physical copy. Urgh.
Still waiting for the rewards... Why aren't there any updates since August?
Waiting for the box. I remember this exciting first year of using kickstarter. If the box ever arrives, it will be a real blast from the past.
Still waiting. Did you even send anything out?
What is going on here? No answer to any of my Mails to their adress, no reaction here on KS - they logged in last in September!
All I want to know is when I can expect the $110Boxed Copy of the game?
Would be cool to finally get the (big) boxed copy of the game ;-)
Stooge again i 100% agree they have been sh*t with updates and we al deserve better then that.
What im trying to say is to pick what your fighting and upset about or you may be ignored. There is absolutly no way we were ever going to get the ultra specal editoing with 100s of extras befor a retail relese of the basic game. Thats why they gave us the digital copies too. If it was possible to do that they would have. But to do it would have ment delaying a physical realse for a year for no other reason tha.en to give me an you a usb stock befor anyone else was alowed to play the game.
Mean while do to no lefal way to get the game the game would have been parited like crazy.
Wich would have ment a massive loss of sales.
When should we expect to receive our $500 tier rewards? In one year, one and a half year? I have patience, no doubt about that.
Where are our physical rewards? Why have you gone silent on this?
@Christian Page What you posted is more of a rant than my posted opinion.
I've had over 10 ks projects miss their estimated delivery times by YEARS. I have waited on many of these projects to get physical rewards that were supposed to be delivered YEARS ago. It is because of these tardy projects that I am not backing projects that do not already have a solid track record of delivering physical products.
I love this series and really enjoyed this last installment. But it is quite frustrating when the last update says 'Kickstarter rewards shipping update...YESSS!' in mid August and still 3mo later, crickets. It really isn't that much to ask for a simple message in follow-up to something already claimed is happening.
And if ks is not a pre-ordering site, then why does simply searching for "preorder" yield nearly 300 projects? And that is only the projects that use that word.
Tina asked me to leave a comment here so that is what I'm going to do.
The email she sent the request to starts with star*...
Thanks everyone for your patience regarding this.
Same here - 110$ Backer. Backerkit says " Everything looks good! You can still edit your shipping info. "
Why can I still edit my shipping info? Shouldn't it be already on its way?
Stooge. We did what did they get befor us? We had the game befor them. The whole point of having a digital copy was so we could play it befor all the physical extras were done. What would you have them do? Not sell a singal copy till alll our extras are done being made costing them a furtune in lost profit? Or send out the game with none of the extras we payed for pissing off the fans? No matter how you do it pepole like you still would of been on here ranting about somthing or they would have lost a ton of money.
and no kickstarter is not a pre-order service. If thats what you want go to gamestop.
Read the kickstarter faq. Its pretty clear that thats not how this site works.
Agreed we've gotten something (and I really like that something) but I do think it is fair to expect that KS backers (aka delayed and glorified pre-ordering) should get their products before the mainstream does.
Tore. Stop saying you have nothing you had acess to the game long befor consle players did. Would you rather have gotten a physical copy missing everything we were promised? The consle version thats out is missing everything we backed for. They should be updating more frequint but you have far more then nothing. You fail to undrstand what the point of backing a project is. Its not for you to get everything asap and to screw everyone that did not back it. Its to help make sure somthing you care about gets made.
Has ANYONE actually received their special boxed edition of the game?
Its a shame that console players already have the game, but we who paid for the production still has nothing.
What is the status on physical rewards shipping? I backed at the Journeyman Level and have not received mine.
Has anyone heard anything more about what's happening re: $250-and-up backers rewards? It's almost coming up to 2 months after the last update... Has anyone in the below $250 backer received the physical rewards yet?
Ok so the last time they posted here was 23rd November of last year, looks like they are not too bothered about talking to us here! They have not replied to my emails either which I sent middle of August and early September. Has anyone here had any contact from them of any kind recently?
You know what, you obviously dgaf so whatever.
Also wondering when the Journeys Birth and Tome of the Balance eBooks will be coming. Thanks!
This is completely out of the blue but I'm not sure who to contact at this point. I cannot sign into the forums at all. When I try to reset my password, it says that it can't find my account. Fine, even though I can search for my user name and find old posts. Somehow I got deleted. So I go to recreate it, and it tells me it's in use. Then I click on the contact the administrator link, and nothing happens there either. I'm wondering if someone hacked my account on the RTG forums or something. Either way I created another account but that never, after over a month, got approved to post. At this point it's irritating. I linked my account to the same email I used here. I pledged a lot, and now I can't get in to talk about anything if I want to, and am seriously worried at this point I won't get my pledge either.
I am also wondering about the ebooks as I am pretty sure they haven't been released yet. I sent a KS message to RTG and also an email to their company info address asking them for an update, but I haven't received a reply to either yet. I sent them on the 20th August so unless they are in crunch mode or something, I would have hoped to have a reply by now :(
This is exciting times!!
Hi friends. It's been so long, I might be wrong, but I don't recall ever receiving the digital Journeys graphic novel and Tome of the Balance PDFs. Did those ever get released? Thanks!
Is there a simple way to check I have all the chapters and the final cut installed, before I start playing? I don't see a version number and new game only lets me pick book 1.
Today I got mail from RTG to verify my shipping information on backerkit. Apparently shipping will start after the 18th of September.
Have the digital versions of the short stories, grimoire and graphic novel been released yet?
I'm also disappointed. Did not play it, because I wanted the final physical version ($110 backer level) and now, I'm still waiting with NO information, when we will get this version.
I am very disappointed by this campaign. Usually people get the rewards before the general public get a hand on the product. We will have the physical rewards 3 years later than the originally planned date. Even if the studio plans to send the most finished up to date product, 3 years is not acceptable. So this is the last videogame kickstarter that I would have helped.
Jon Jon Yun It is gonna be a digital update for the pc version (the console version is already TFC, which they explained in the Kickstarter updates), as well as the version that is gonna be on all the physical copies. They will be shipped shortly.
Is TFC (The Final Cut Edition) going to be released as an update to the already being sold Digital Console Editions?
Well, they did say that after final cut is released their next step is to "get those boxes to backers" so that's propably the point when they start filling in the physical rewards. Makes sense, really, to release physical rewards after the definitive edition. Otherwise the game would have to be updated every time you install it from a disc.
Also still waiting on all the physical stuff. Have recived absolutly nothing until now :(
Well I still need the postcard and the audio book version of Journeys : Birth?
When do we receive these?
Oh I see. I haven't been following too closely. I know it's released on Steam, and I have a digital copy on my PS4. I thought the game was complete already :/
Audrey Winter, I read yesterday's Kickstarter Update, but I still don't see anything in regards to physical rewards :(
I do understand a "TFC" version is getting released. Is that the physical collector's edition I'm getting?
