A quick note on top: we still send updates to all backers, though most of you have already received your rewards. If you don't want to get any more Kickstarter emails, you can unsubscribe by clicking the link at the bottom. And if you want to continue receiving news from Red Thread about future projects — like Draugen (see below) — you can sign up for our newsletter: https://www.redthreadgames.com/newsletter
Still here? If so: welcome to another much-anticipated update, as we continue to crawl, ever-so-slowly, towards the finishing line.
Most frequently asked question first: yes, we are still working on the special edition Dreamfall Chapters boxes — and yes, that work is progressing.
In our last update, we mentioned that the Tome of the Balance has grown immensely, both in scope and quality, and it’s now in its final editing stages (all 300+ pages of it). Here's another in-progress preview:
Given previous experiences, we hesitate to provide an exact timeline for printing and shipping. As soon as the printers start rolling, however, we’ll let affected backers know. At that point, we'll also need to re-confirm shipping addresses, because it’s been a while and people move. (A long while, possibly multiple moves.)
For those of you who keep asking: unfortunately, no, we will not be selling the Tome separately. We're really sorry about that, but it could be unfair to backers who have waited so long, and it would also be a logistical nightmare. We're just not equipped to sell physical goods at this point.
In other Red Thread news: a few weeks ago we (re-)announced our upcoming game, Draugen — a first-person Fjord Noir mystery set in 1920s Norway — with a teaser trailer. You can watch that trailer on YouTube and you can learn more about Draugen on our website. If you like what you see, please consider wish-listing the game on Steam or on GOG.com. It helps us a ton, and you get to stay informed about the release date — which is some time in 2019.
Draugen wouldn't exist without Dreamfall Chapters, and Dreamfall wouldn't exist without you folks. So thanks again for your support: we really, really appreciate it.
