Mini-update: T-shirt, new tier, TLJH information

The chosen T-shirt!

A couple of days ago, we asked our pledgers to vote for one of three T-shirt designs. Well, the community has spoken, and The Loremaster tee is the clear winner:

Note that final design may change. This is for mock-up purposes only.

The T-shirt will be available in both male and female sizes.

We will announce details about T-shirt availability and prices next week, along with final designs, sizes and colours. The Loremaster will join at least one other T-shirt design, and you will be able to add the T-shirts to your existing pledges.

Most Wanted!

Like sneaky ninjas, we added a new $1,000 tier yesterday without telling anyone. The Most Wanted! tier is described as follows:

MOST WANTED! • Includes everything from the $750 tier! • PLUS get your mug on Most Wanted posters in Marcuria OR Most Wanted broadcasts in Europolis! A photograph of you or a person of your choosing will be used for the poster/broadcast. In addition, you will receive a special Most Wanted listing in the game's credits!

Please note that ALL $1,000 pledges have been upgraded and now automatically come with the $750 tier reward instead of the $500 tier reward.

Most Wanted! is limited to 20 pledgers, and as of this moment there are 12 left.

Information about $2 million stretch goal

After yesterday's The Longest Journey Home reveal, we received a bunch of questions about the $2 million stretch goal.

We understand that there was some confusion and a lack of concrete information, so we have posted a response to your questions on our blog.

Please let us know if you have any more questions in regards to this stretch goal, or to anything else!

      I kinda wonder what RTG will do with the "leftovers". Like if there's only 370/500 shifter editions and 70 daric kin editions: will the "leftovers" be marketed as exclusive when the ks campaign is over ? Or is KS the only way to get these versions and will production be limited to just the amounds pledged ?

    2. Crrooss on March 3, 2013

      My proposition for $1,750,000 streatch goal. :)

      "Media world" - Stark version of the Markuria`s library. In game network (or something else, however network is probably the best option), which inform us about past events. Imagine if you fall into coma today (better not!) and wake up in 2220. What will be first thing you want to check? How world looks right now, how and why it changed. What happend during this 200 years. How looks world map right now. This stretch goal will reveal whole secrets, events... Everything what caused that the world looks now that, not different.

      I think this could be interesting stretch goal. :)

    3. Kami on March 3, 2013

      Could you update the stretch goal picture? :) Two more are achieved now.
      And please, please reveal new ones in the next update!

      +1 What Vladimir and Sovnd said.

    5. Vladimir Stamenov on March 3, 2013

      I'm with Sovnd on this one. Make a new Kickstarter for The Longest Journey Home if you have to, I'll make sure to have more money than $25 dollars for it. That would be awesome!

    6. Carl England on March 3, 2013

      P.S. Good luck on reaching 2 million! :D

    7. Carl England on March 3, 2013

      Can you put a tier between $50 and $110 that comes with a boxed edition (and all the $50 tier stuff)? It doesn't have to be a collector's edition or have any special, added extras. Just a boring old box, with a cover of some kind, with a disk inside with the game on it. I kinda hate digital (I know, 'get with the times' right) but I'm also truly skint! Paying for a wedding is sapping all the fun out of getting paid! You could even just send the disk and have us print out the cover! :)

    8. Dieithrio on March 3, 2013

      Developers, please, if you don't reach the 2M goal make another campaign just about The Longest Journey Home. Please.

      @stephan
      It seems Ragnar and Red Thread Rames are committed to the making of TLJH no matter what.

      http://redthreadgames.com/blog/2/3/2013/for-pledgers-some-information-about-the-longest-journey-home :
      "even if we do NOT get to $2 million on Kickstarter, the race is far from over, and hope is certainly not dead! We have a good while to go before Chapters is released, and we hope to keep raising money towards both the production of Chapters (improving the game every step of the way) AND towards The Longest Journey Home. And if that doesn't get us where we need to be, we will definitely look at ways to raise money for TLJH at some point in the future -- including, of course, using any profits from Chapters towards the next game.

      This is a story we want to tell and, dammit, we're going to tell it. Some way, somehow, at some point."

      Quote from the end of the Dealspwn interview with Martin Bruusgaard:
      http://www.dealspwn.com/dreamfall-chapters-interview-martin-bruusgaard-130883
      At this point I brought up the community question (submitted by user ‘ethteck’) which asked if the $2,000,000 stretch goal was not met, whether Red Thread Games would still look to complete the mysterious ‘The Longest Journey Home’ project at all. The initial response from Martin was surprisingly straight forward - “yes,” but he made sure to clarify his statement afterwards. “We certainly hope so," he explained. "It’s something that we would really like to do, but it will require time and effort, and therefore money. It’s not something that we put up there [in the stretch goals] to tempt people and sort of “give us all your money.” It is a new project we would love to do, but we need the funding for it, it won’t develop itself unfortunately. But I know that me and Dag and Ragnar would love to do it, and if it doesn’t happen through Kickstarter we will try to make it happen through other means.”

    10. Giorgos Chrysikopoulos - Dream Traveller on March 3, 2013

      @Stephan: Exactly, everything they earn here above what is required for Chapters, as well as every pre-sale of Chapters (and even the sales AFTER Chapters becomes commercially available) will go towards TLJH. TLJH becoming a reality isn't a matter of "if" but of "when", and the more successful this Kickstarter (and the Chapters pre-sales in Paypal) is, the faster they'll be able to start preproduction on it and the faster we'll experience its Magic!

    11. @delamer - Drachkin on March 3, 2013

      @Valentina
      Enlighten me please: woman sizes- it's bigger then man sizes? :)

    12. Tet Yoon Lee on March 3, 2013

      In other words, no problem ....

    13. Tet Yoon Lee on March 3, 2013

      Yes, the problems with offering a TLJH addon are what I expected.

    14. Stephan Vandenborn on March 3, 2013

      My original plan was to lower my pledge to the original amount that I did if the $2m wasn't met on kickstarter, but when I read the blog that says paypal donations are accumulating beyond the kickstarter campaign, I won't :) I mean every small bit helps right ? I just thought it was a definite "no" to tljh if we didn't reach $2m here on march 9

    15. Leo on March 3, 2013

      Ideas for the other design: something colourful and beautiful featuring art from the game, a location and a character: April or Zoe.

    16. Jester's_Tear82 on March 3, 2013

      I'm wondering if it's possible to make the shirts a reward for certain tiers? Say, $500/$750 and above? I'm close to declaring a bankruptcy , but I must have that shirt!! :)

    17. Missing avatar

      Rince on March 3, 2013

      Hmm, irght now I am not sure wether I want to upgrade 500%-Tear or wait for another funding round for TLJH... but you are honest, that's good ;)

    18. Jester's_Tear82 on March 3, 2013

      Yay my favorite t-shirt won! :) Now if you could pretty please add the word "Crowmance" It'll be perfect ;)
      & I definitely agree about the women's tee, also we need it in all sizes (X-small for me.. I want to wear it proudly on the street!)

      If you're taking ideas for the other design - a combined picture of Zoe, April & Kian would be great. Thank you again for the constant updates, do keep them coming - I'm dying to know who the second playable character is!

    19. Leo on March 3, 2013

      I actually prefere crow on the front as it is. Perhaps I'm in the minority but a huge design on the back does not look neat to me so my vote goes for t shirt as is! :)

    20. Leo on March 3, 2013

      The t shirt design is EXACTLY what I was hoping for!! It's wonderful! Sounds great you will make women sizes and hopefully an XS that can fit the small ones hehe :)

      Will you consider different colors for the background? Looking forward to see mock ups closer to the final design. And also what is the price for this add on? :0

    21. Starla on March 2, 2013

      I agree with Sarah. A women's tee would be appreciated. (Zoe would approve!)

    22. Sarah | Draic Kin on March 2, 2013

      Love the lore artwork, can't wait to see the tshirts!

      Can I request that you give us a couple of options for the shape of the women's tee? For example, I buy from Threadless.com all the time and find any one of their boat-neck, v-neck or scoop-neck to be much, much more flattering than the traditional girly cut. I prefer the lower neckline. If you go with a traditional tshirt for the women's tee I know I won't wear it so there's not much point in buying it :\

      Sorry to be fussy. I'm not sure how many other women feel this way, so maybe it's worth getting votes? Your consideration greatly appreciated! :D

    23. Carlitusroda on March 2, 2013

      Sorry, no. Even if 2$ million it's unreachable, this is a funding projest for a game. I prefer a 15 hour game than one 10+ game plus another game prototype. Also, there's no word about my "klingon" translation.

      We are fans who buy every p&c adventure. We are also fans who translate the games when they are only released in english.

      ATM, i'm disappointed.

    24. Kyle Manley - Dream Traveller on March 2, 2013

      Yeah, I was hoping for the logo on the front, picture on the back as well. Still, I'll get it either way.

    25. Penny Carlson - Dream Traveller on March 2, 2013

      I like this design very much, but I also would prefer the game name and symbol to be on the front. Much classier. And as Christine said, Crowboy on the back.

    26. Christine - Dream Traveller on March 2, 2013

      Hmmm... I just realized you have the wording on the back. I'd think it be a little cooler if the wording was on the front. I'm imagining someone walks by thinks it looks like an interesting symbol and name, and then after passing you sees Crow on the back and that would catch their attention. Might be just me though.

      I had a hunch that t-shirt design was going to win, seeing all the comments even on the first page of replies to that update. All I can say is I definitely WON'T be getting that one. However, I'll probably buy the 'other T-shirt design'.

      I'd really love a t-shirt with Zoe on the front. Preferably the same model used in the HD wallpaper.
      I mean, I like Crow and all, but he's just not the same as Zoe or April.

    29. Denis Surkov on March 2, 2013

      T-shirts with a crow...I was hoping something more colorful...a cinematic scene...:(

    30. Jamie Dutton on March 2, 2013

      I'm glad Loremaster won, but what about Cyberbard's very awesome designs? I'm really surprised and kind of disappointed that ya'll didn't mention them at all!

    31. Zdenek "Alcarmo" on March 2, 2013

      WOW! The amount of pledgers has increased very quickly for some reason :-) could it be The Longest Journey home stretch goal? :-P Not blaming anyone for it if yes :-)
      btw do you guess who will be the second playable character? I wish it is Kian Alvane :-)

    32. Christine - Dream Traveller on March 2, 2013

      Not giving us pricing info on the T-shirts? :( But I want to add on one right now! sigh... if there's one thing TLJ and Dreamfall has taught me is patience. Looks great though. I'm happy you added the suggest symbol of the balance. :) And I caught the new $1000 tier yesterday. :D

    33. Jan Magne Tjensvold on March 2, 2013

      Awesome T-shirt with our most favorite winged sidekick. Keep up the great work.

      Any chance to get the word "backer" printed on the back, to make it exclusive to those who backed the project at this early stage? It would have been really cool to be able to brag about backing this game, similar to what I can do with my Double Fine Adventure T-shirt that says "BACKER!" on the back.

    34. Giorgos Chrysikopoulos - Dream Traveller on March 2, 2013

      @A.A: They have to reveal a big stretch goal (at $1.5 million), the 2nd Playable Character, a new NPC, the actual inclusion of the T-shirts add-ons, and there are more potential ones as well (for example, I'm expecting they may confirm Zoe's Voice returning after the Richer World goal is reached)

    35. Tina Bryntesen - Dream Traveller on March 2, 2013

      @A.A Yes lots of great updates but they haven't revealed that NPC they were talking about yet! Also second playable character and stretch goals! *excited*

    36. A.A - The Dream Travelling Echidna $6.13 on March 2, 2013

      I have a question: Have RTG got ANY big reveals/updates up their sleeves for the last 6 days? Because, quite frankly, I can't see how they can POSSIBLY out-do the awesomeness of the last couple of days worth of updates. I mean, really... :D

    37. Erik on March 2, 2013

      I might have to get my own shirt printed with the balance symbol, at some point.

    38. Tina Bryntesen - Dream Traveller on March 2, 2013

      Unfortunately I didn't win the lottery today, otherwise I'd been wanted as well :P
      Yay, t-shirt! :D

    39. Magnus - Dream Traveller on March 2, 2013

      So the cymbol and writing is on the back of the shirt?

    40. Laila Eikeland Knutsen on March 2, 2013

      Sneaky ninjas!! I want to be wanted! And if I rob a bank in order to get the 1000 I will be.... but not in the way I was hoping for, so maybe not.

    41. Matthew Wiese on March 2, 2013

      Loremaster. Called it.
