A very exciting Journeyman Edition shipping update

80 likes

Folks, it's happening.

It's really happening. 

They're here.

All four thousand of them.

But only for a brief time. 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. The next 1500-ish will be included in the special edition boxes (bonus!). And the final thousand boxes will be available for sale via our website, probably starting in May.

And then there's this.

After dumping our previous t-shirt partner, we found a new one: Grafa; a small, Norwegian print shop based in a small and scenic coastal town (check the photos on their website). T-shirts with soul, and we love 'em. The test prints passed our art director's stringent quality control, and the first batch — for backers — is underway. We hope to offer these designs for sale soon.

Finally, on March 8th — International Women's Day — we posted a couple of photos on social media. From the women of Red Thread Games, and from the women of Red Thread's games — there wouldn't be any Red Thread games (or Games) without them.

Next up: soundtrack CDs, the special edition boxes, some awesome books...and USB-keys.

      Sent a message May 2017 that my address has changed, but never received confimation. What's the go regarding the items being sent to the right address?

      @MsDemeanor: "Wait, thats the special collectors edition box?"

      That's the "standard" box for $110-level backers (now know as Journeyman Edition). Those who opted for the Dreamer's Edition ($250) or higher should get a different (hopefully nicer) box - but will also receive this one (as per update #111).

      I'd agree that describing this as a "Collector's Edition box" is hyping it a bit. But since the $110-level was the first including a physical copy, it's probably unreasonable to expect much beyond a basic box. Plus it does look comparable to the Dreamfall Collector's Edition boxes that were available a few years ago - see https://www.game.co.uk/en/dreamfall-collectors-edition-23501

      And assuming RTG don't plan to print any more copies, any physical release will be limited edition and so technically "collectable".

      @Jito463 - WoOS, LofUT
      At the moment I play the final cut finally. Now that it´s complete.

      Well you can buy the t-shirts instead later on the page. Hoping for the link soon. :)

    7. Sven_Q45 on March 11

      What a new t-shirt? I want that Watilla shirt right now.

      I´m so looking forward for the rest of my rewards. :)

    8. MsDemeaner on March 11

      Wait, thats the special collectors edition box? Seriously? What is so special and collectable about that? Am I missing something?

    9. Celeste Gamble on March 10

      OMG, can't wait to buy a Watilla shirt!! Watilla represent!!

    10. Susie Mawdsley on March 10

      I moved and would like my T-shirt sent to my new address. Where do I put in my address change?

      RTGames- I wanted to give you all a handshake and a hug, and congratulate you on this incredible accomplishment you have done. I wanted to tell you this, because a while ago, while things were still in development and not quite finished, I posted a pretty harsh review of my thoughts on dreamfall chapters, and I ended up not finishing the first chapter and pretty muych walking away from this project with upset and dissapoitned feelings for what i thought was a weak effort and not really worthwhile. Having a bit of persepective on thinngs now (my keyboard is brokenm, apoligize for odd or repeating keystrokes) I see that I was judging Chapters unnfairly, and that I was blaming the software for not meeting my impossible expectationns. I've also had a chance to get get perspective on crowdfundinng annd kickstarter projects. The reality is that I've seen so many crowd funded projects fall apart or just not able to deliver on what was promised, and I have a much better understandinng of finacials with development... and I think it speaks so highly of all of your characters and work ethics that you have started this project, and completed it, and delivered on all promises- with the amount of money you did get. I'm excited to get my backer game, and even more excited to sit down and play though the whole thing. Thanks for your work RTG.

    13. Eric Pipedream Leisy on March 10

      Backers asking about clarification on shirts: No, RTG is not sending out shirts to people who have already received them- they are being sent to the handful of backers who never got their shirt, and then they are selling the rest... so if you wannt a 'replacemennt' shirt, soudns like you will need to pay for it yourself. :/

      @RTG: "Not in Norway, not yet at least!"

      Isn't spring the time when polar bears stop roaming the streets of Oslo? ;)

      Good to see this coming to a close - I was starting to worry about it reaching the 4th anniversary after the estimated delivery date. :p

    15. Petar Petrov on March 10

      Amazing! You've kept your word and only after 5 years, the $110 backers will start to receive their rewards! I really want to back your eventual new project at such a tier and to receive my reward for a mere 5-10 years from now! Well done and good luck with all your future projects!

      wish i donated at that level :) stuff looks sweet

    18. Jito463 - WoOS, LofUT on March 10

      Oops, I just realized I only backed for the digital rewards. Oh well, still good news (even if not for me personally).

    19. Jito463 - WoOS, LofUT on March 10

      Awesome news! That reminds me, I still haven't finished the game. I should probably do that tonight when I get home.

    20. Zeo on March 10

      As a normie backer, I would also love to get my hands on some lovely T-shirt! Also, is there a possibility of a Watilla hoodie down the line?

    21. Yawhann Chong on March 10

      Good things DO come to those who wait!

    22. Philip on March 10

      Great news! It's been quite some time (as many people have pointed out), but I for one am very happy to see that you are shipping the boxes! I'm looking forward to receiving one (as a bonus, yay) and to the other news you teased. Thanks for the hard work of all women and men at RTG!

      @cabfe: Not in Norway, not yet at least!

    24. Red Thread Games Creator on March 10

      @trillex: A handful of backers never received their t-shirts, and we didn't know about all of them until recently. We were out of the originals, and decided to create new designs and work with a new partner to get our backers their shirts — they look and feel great. We're planning on offering them for sale from our website in the near future.

      Spring is coming!

      Can you comment more on the t-shirts? I bought several of the old t-shirts but didn't really like the print quality but I was just happy to have some merchandise of TLJ.

      You mention they go out to backers, but not which pledge reward. Are they to replace the ones we have already received or just a tease for a future sale?
