Journeyman Edition shipping delay

Posted by Red Thread Games (Creator)

As it turns out — not surprisingly, given our history — the estimated January ship date for the Journeyman Edition boxes was a tad optimistic. The wheels of printing presses turn oh-so-slowly and our experience with digital distribution helps not at all.

We're awaiting delivery of test discs from the factory — we want to confirm that we can actually install the game before printing thousands of copies and spending tens of thousands of monies. Once we've received, tested and approved the master disc, we've been promised a two-week turnaround on production.

Hopefully this estimate sticks and we can ship boxes by the end of the month. We'll keep you updated.

In happier news, we've decided that ALL physical edition backers ($250-and-up) will receive the Journeyman Edition in addition to the box they've pledged for. This means that some of you will get TWO cool things to put on your book/game shelves...along with the beautiful printed materials, of course.

On that note, here's a preview of three comics — "Woka Sleep", "The Propheseer" and "Mountains to Cross" — from the Journeys collection (click through for a higher resolution image):

We hope you'll enjoy these small (but very important) stories.

One final thing:

In December, we announced our intention to print and sell new Dreamfall themed tees via our website. The response was good and we currently have 525 people on the waiting list. Unfortunately, because of an issue with our partner (you can read more about that here) our plans have temporarily been put on hold. The 20 backers who never got their reward tees will of course be prioritised and will receive their shirts regardless.

That's all for now. Thanks for reading!

      @Red Thread Games - I would really like to upgrade my existing Dreamer Edition pledge to a Shifter Edition. Prior to shipping these out, if at all possible, please let me know if this can be done.

      Okay so just a question - in the update you say only physical backers of 250 and up get the additional journey man edition, but in your comment on this thread you say 200 and up? As a Wonkers usb backer I'd just like some clarification, especially as I've never seen any news about when I'll be receiving my goods...

      Thanks! I wasn't worried about getting what I ordered.. I just wasn't sure what the update meant for me. Thanks for clarifying.

      Funny... I was thinking about this just yesterday...
      Thanks for the update!

      For people who'd love a Crow plushy you can always buy items like this 12" model right now off Amazon - just needs a bit of minor work on the head feathers

      Excited to finally get the feelies that go with this adventure! Do we already have a place to update our mailing address?

      I cannot for the life of me remember if I had a shirt coming in my package, but I know I don't have one. AM I ONE OF THE 20?!

      Please Please Please make a Crow Plushy

      @Red Thread Games thanks for the clarification :)

      @Jamil: Without having your specific pledge at hand, if you ordered an extra copy as an add-on, you'll still get that extra copy in addition to the 'bonus' copy.

      @Marc & @tarasconi: Sorry for the confusion. The $110 pledge gets you the boxed Journeyman Edition, which is shipping first. Nothing's changed there. For those who backed the game at $200 and up, however, in addition to the various 'special' editions they also get the 'basic' Journeyman Edition in the box. It's a bonus (and actually makes things a bit easier for us). No one gets less than what they pledged for.

      same for me i pledged for the boxed collector edition, what will i receive and when?

    13. Marc L. Allen on

      OK.. Sorry.. I'm seriously confused. (Not terribly surprising!)

      I have a Boxed Collector edition, for which I pledged $110. That is no longer an actual pledge level. It's not in the list.

      So, technically, I'm a "Physical Edition Backer" but I have no idea what that means in response to this update.

    14. Jamil Ismaili | Eternal Dreamer on

      Thanks for the update and a wonderful surprise re the bonus Journeyman editions. I'd pledged the $90 add-on for an extra one of those already (intended as a gift for my sister) so would that mean I'd also now receive another to keep myself ?
