Update #4: New screenshot, shipping update & a suggestion
New screenshot of Riverwood
We have a brand new realtime, in-game screenshot for you today. This is from the western edges of Riverwood, a forest in the Northlands of Arcadia, not far from the capital city Marcuria. And it's looking absolutely beautiful.
We'll be seeing much more of Riverwood in an upcoming video.
We're using Unity 4 for Dreamfall Chapters, which allows us a level of detail and visual quality far beyond that of Dreamfall. With these tools, we can tell a richer, deeper story in a world that feels more magical, more alive, and more grounded.
Shipping in Europe?
We are listening to your comments, questions and concerns, and we are working on finding the best way to ship to our European pledgers from within the EU, in order to avoid additional VAT and customs charges.
We are confident that we'll have a solution in place long before your boxes ship out, and we'll keep you updated on the progress. Pledgers will have the choice of where they want their boxes sent from before November 2014.
Rest assured that this remains a very high priority for us! We want everyone to receive their physical rewards as quickly, painlessly and cheaply as possible.
Please note that the current shipping charges will not change.
Renaming the Complete Edition and Director's Pack
We've seen plenty of discussions about the names for these two boxed editions, and we've had some internal discussions about it. We completely agree that the Complete Edition and Director's Pack could benefit from more lore-friendly (and more epic) names, particularly compared with the (cheaper) Dreamer's Edition. Which already has an awesome name.
We are therefore suggesting a name change for both of these boxed editions:
We would like to rename the Complete Edition to the Shifter's Edition.
And for the Director's Pack, we would like to go with the Dragon Edition.
These names will be prominently displayed on the box covers. In addition to being better names, they also reflect their respective forum badges more accurately.
But we're not going to make this change without getting your feedback. So jump into the comments below and let us know what you think!
