Why are you not releasing a universal version of the game? Users with multiple computers running more than one operating system shouldn't be forced to choose just one.
Can you explain why you aren't planning to release this game on Steam? It would have the enormous advantage of multi-platform support and cloud saves.
This tiny bit of Lore makes me look forward to the Loremaster.
The loremaster looks like a great feature. Best of luck!
Well done - altough I personally do not care about Mac and Linux versions. Hopefully one of the next stretch-goals are the extra languages - I'd really like to play it in my native language right from the start.
I like me some apples... and penguins. Two of my favourite operating systems combined with one of my most cherished adventure games. A match made in heaven. Or was it story time? Nevermind. Thanks for the next step. Now people, lets explode this baby beyond the 2 million barrier. Share. Spread. Talk. Engage. Go! :D
@Giorgos @Chad Good! Due to that stupid DRM thing I can't play the Dreamfall I own and I'm waiting for Steam to lower the prices to buy it again 'cause they've told me the Steam version of Dreamfall is DRM-free. Such a pain in the ass, really.
@Chad: this game won't have ANY protection system, it's DRM-free, confirmed.
Easily gonna get A Longer Journey. The only big thing in question is getting A Longest Journey Home.
A Mac version is very important to me. And as of this writing, it looks like the $900K goal has been met.
I even played Dreamfall on an iMac (via using Boot Camp and Win XP on a secondary partition). I'm just hoping that this game doesn't have the annoying copy protection that made Dreamfall annoying at times (note: can't play Dreamfall in a virtual machine).
@Valery huh? It says in their update "Now on PC, Mac & Linux!". Sounds like Linux is go, no question.
Woohoo! The dream came true! :D
Are you considering adding Oculus Rift support? Considering you're using Unity, if I understand it correctly it should be relatively straight forward to add. Thanks! :)
Great and thanks ! Looking it now.
Thirteen Chapters is back up, everyone! I hope it can take the load now. If it can't though, I'll just upgrade my hosting package.
@Alex Hempel: that's why I'm hoping they'll leave a possibility to increase our pledges available, even after the campaign ends. It's a win-win situation for both involved parties; they get more funds and you get a better package, you couldn't afford before.
@Owl : I agree. At least could we know if EFIGS versions will already be included in the game or as a stretch goal ?
I upgraded my pledge to $75 today. I really wish I could afford one of the boxed editions - would look great next to my original TLJ box and my Dreamfall CE - but that's not going to happen before the Kickstarter ends. Either way, good luck for the project, and congrats on the first stretch goal :)
Wow, nice drawing, your artist is really good!
To be honest, instead of The Loremaster or a "gorillastick" and stuff like that I would be happier with other languages.
@RussianNeuroMancer: I second that! (Полностью поддерживаю!)
Thank you for reasonable goal :)
@Sarah: Correction^ it will be released on PC and Mac. (Maybe other platforms as well).
Must have really killed the website. It's still down :(
WOOT! $900K, I wonder how much this Kickstarter will get by the end of this all.
First stretch goal achieved. Whoo! Dreamfall: Chapters will be released on pc, mac and linux! That's a relief because I only have a mac :)
This is a Dreaming come true and without peer or price. I've been a longtime fan since TLJ and have always longed for a continuation of the story of April Ryan. Dreamfall was enough to rekindle some hope of seeing the story continue. I am really hopeful again that we can see from Chapters a completion of Zoe's story and a glorious lead-in to a true sequel with April in the lead character position once more. I'm convinced April isn't dead...and where the hell is Crow? For Chapters, I would love to see an iPad edition of the game. I believe the interface could be quite naturally extended for a compelling experience on this next gen platform. Integration with Kinnect controls on Xbox 360 and support for the Oculus Rift 3D headset is a must-do. I would be excited to see these added as stretch goals which would only make the experience even more magical.
@Gal: As Abnaxus himself would say: " you HAD met Abnaxus in the upcoming game! And it seems as if it WILL HAVE BEEN TOMORROW that you ARE MEETING him for the first time at the Journey Man Inn" ;-)
I can't wait to meet Abnaxus in the upcoming game! It seems as if it was yesterday that I met him for the first time at The Journey Man Inn. :)
I think we might of crashed Thirteen Chapters. :)
I think I remember reading that there are going to be two cities announced in the near future :)
@Alex: Stark is coming. They promised they'll show us Europolis soon. It's just that they chose to start with revealing Arcadia.
I'm a bit concerned about the lack of information about Stark. Most of the updates are either about the boxes/platforms/tiers or about Arcadia. That's a bit sad because for me Stark is as interesting as Arcadia is . So I hope you'll give us some info about the world of science in the near future :)
@Nicholas Otieno Nyarach: We killed their website. The direct link to the original image still works, though, so use that instead!
This user's account has been deleted.
RaMa here. Apologies for Thirteen Chapters breaking down! I'll get the site too toughen up soon :)
We'll hopefully be back online tomorrow!
Thanks for giving him a shout out! He has worked very hard between all of the fan sites.
I can't believe I was worried you guys might not make it to 850k it looks like you guys will break the 900k mark soon and probably a reach a million probably more.
I am really glad to see this project moving forward it's gonna be quite a ride following the development over the course of the next two years.
Yea! I love the depth of the different cultures. I'm looking forward to learning more about these new people. We need to hit 1,000,000 soon!
We apologise for murdering Thirteen Chapters! I guess they really weren't set up to handle such a massive, enthusiastic, hungry load!
In the meantime, use the link above to get the original banner image. That link should survive pretty much everything. Even 14,000 eager pledgers!
Sorry, guys! You should check out Thirteen Chapters when it's back up...but yeah, give it some breathing room, please!
Yes Abnaxus! The new race sounds awesome also :) can't wait let's hope we reach that goal!
We should give the Thirteen Chapters site some space to breathe and check back tommorow. Obviously too many people have decided to check the page after RTG mentioned it in the update.
13 Chapters seems down now indeed. It was working when the update came, I assume all the sudden traffic overwhelmed it.
Great news! And is the Thirteen Chapters site not working for anyone else?
Happy to know Mac is also considered. Can't wait to try it on Mountain Lion or newer OS when it's out.
Come on let's get this to $1 million!
It seems we have overwhelmed Thirteen Chapters..... ^_^°
Manoggoy. Cool. I've been curious about these fellows ever since the sneak peek of that drawing in the introduction video! I'm excited! The 950K goal is one I definitely hope we'll reach; the Loremaster sounds like an awesome feature (not to mention a longer journey at the 1 million). I was very fond of the Enclave in the first TLJ game and would love to be able to contribute to another one in the next game!
