Journeyman Edition shipping delay
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!
