Full sized Wonkers plushies should be available too. Either as a tier or add-on... Hopefully as an add-on, coz say it costs $50 to make a profit.... I could dish out another $60 for a Wonkers plush...
Even if we don't make 1.5mil... Could we please have a director's cut eventually?
@Tore, that is a good point. Hahaha
@William lol I see what you did there ;)
And by pure I meant poor of course. :D
C'mon folks, we can absolutely make the $1,500,000 happen, and you know it! I myself was amazed how much more I was able to squeeze from my pure budget. And I'll be squeezing some more in these final days of the campaign. It's easy, you should try it! Dollar here, 5 dollars there... That's all it takes! Christ, I suck at motivational speeches...
@Jamil - Yeah that's what I was hoping! I wish I had thought of suggesting it earlier in the campaign.
@Deanthony Potts Read the $1,000 "Puppetmaster" Teir :)
@Jeff Willis That sounds a neat idea ! RTG read all the threads so perhaps they'll consider something like that, so long as it's cost effective
@Modokameg: With the stretch goal achieved (and after an agreement they made with a Polish distributor, CD Projekt) the game will certainly be in: English, Norwegian, German, French and Polish. They will try to make similar arrangements with local distributors/publishers for the game to appear in other languages as well (Spanish, Russian, Italian, and every other language The Longest Journey and Dreamfall were on) but they can't promise those versions yet with certainty.
Okay so, someone could be explain what is, German and french versions ?
That mean if this goald haven't be reach, the game has been in english version only ????
So I know it's kind of late for this kind of thing (only 66 hours to go!) but I thought it would be neat if one of the tiers could add a postcard signed by the voice cast as well as the development staff.
@William Give fans the finger? How so?
Nice wallpaper but why no 2560x1440? :-(
The best wallpaper.
It occurs to me that this might be the first Kickstarter campaign in which the developer has given the fans the finger. Ten times over, at that. :-)
@Audrey: There are 2 graphic novels. One is for backers and according to home page: "This graphic novel will tell multiple stories from The Longest Journey universe, and will expand on characters, locations and situations only hinted at in the games -- including a journey back to April Ryan's childhood. The graphic novel will be made available before the launch of the game in 2014." This is an extra content like others books are.
The second one is the stretch goal gained at 1.1M$, and will be available for everyone as part of the game. (I think as an opening to the game, but the form is not confirmed yet). It will remind important events we've seen in TLJ and Dreamfall. This is the one you're thinking about.
Please explain again the Interactive Novel (TLJ and TLJ:Dreamfall); I thought it was a stretch goal, now turns out that we have to pay extra for it. How does that go together?
Don't get me wrong, I would pledge $1000 for this, if I could, but I'm very poor and can't do that. But I thought the stretch goals were for everyone. And I really need it to make my hubby play Dreamfall. :P
I needs that developer commentary, I needs it!
If you guys want an example of the best in a game, play Alan Wake on PC. Video-in-video.
Can we get a 2560x1440 version of that wallpaper?
Regarding the raunchy humor: I'm picturing the RTG people brainstorming and having so much fun xD I love this kind of humor as well, and I second Cyberbard's naughty bard!
Congrats, everyone! And we still have time to make the next goal reality. Let's press it!
I demand a bard who does nothing but stand on the corner and sing naughty songs. :-)
Regarding the fingering: I would appreciate DFC including some adult content, this would fit the overall scenery quite nicely. Maybe in a special edition?
Like the wallpaper. Maybe you could also build a vertical version for mobile use? Regarding Torment: I'm not into RPGs, but this particular one really looks interesting. And the kickstarter campaign is just crazy, 1.5m in only 12 hours.
New wallpaper is a dream come true for my desktop!! Really happy to have reached this stretch goal as I'm a great fan of dialogue!
Now on to the Directors Cut!
is it going to be comintary like in valve games or more like the comintary that came with fear dc
incase you dont know
valve has a comentary mode with nodes set up that talk about that area or just stuff in genrel
fear had a video that was the creators playing through the game
i prtefer valves way but ill like it eather way
@Liam: Knowing Ragnar, I'm sure it was 100% intentional... Who could forget "The Cock and Puss" and "The Salty Seamen"?
Well a $13 is a reasonable ammount but many of us have gone from like $25 tier to $500 tier or $250 tier to the new $1000 tiers. But as you say can we pledge a bit more then we would be golden. However not everyone reads the comments, so getting to all the backers is a tough challenge. I do like your enthusiasm though and I share your passion to reach this 1,5 mill mark and get a game as adventure packed as possible! Keep up that passion fellow Dreamfallian!
I have to agree with those that have gone before. I'm sure this want 100% unintentional but "the fingerings" has some unfortunate double meaning issues.
Congrats on your progress so far though. I've been dying to see chapters for so long and now we're finally on our way :)
So excited for French localization. That's awesome sauce.
Whoo-hoo for the spoken word!!!!
Now of course we're all salivating over the Director's Cut, here's some fun math:
If every backer could up their bid by $13, we would have our director's cut..(.to get to $2 million, it's up the bid by $40, but that's a bit unrealistic for a lot of us out there)
What do you say to $13? The directors cut will be ours!!! :D
A new Dreamfall and now a new Torment game? Welp.. now I just have to wait until they're released and I can die happy. All evidence to the contrary, there has to be something *seriously* right with a world where this is happening.
Planescape: Torment story? You bet! That is one of my top 5 PC games!
Star Control 2, The Longest Journey, Wing Commander Series, Planescape: Torment...
I demand wallpaper with resolutions 2560x1440+!!
Two new languages is really good, but i would like to ask another thing.
In Brazil there are groups that translate games to brazilian portuguese, the translations are usually good, but the process to install is (usually) a mess, patching binaries, broken update, etc.
So i would like to ask, if possible, to make the "third party translation" more simple (easy way to add a language, UTF8 font, etc.)
I like raunchy humor. I hope we get quite a few of them in Dreamfall Chapters. I'm so stoked about getting the spoken word!! Now for the extremely interesting part the 1,5 mill mark -- Ragnar's Cut!!
@Don Reba: That's sort of the joke. There is raunchy humour in Dreamfall, and Roper Klacks is a strange, strange man.
This user's account has been deleted.
I really hope that the directors cut stretch goal is achieved.
Upping my pledge as a thank you for the torment shout out. Shows serious class.
@Gavin Cramblet - I am still playing Dreamfall. I just saw the Salty Seaman tavern yesterday and, I have to admit, did not recognize the pun.
Torment is fine as is, if anything Project Awakened needed a plug. Too late now though =(
Here's hoping for that commentry track, though If i'm understanding correctly post kickstarter Paypal pledges also contribute to these stretch goals?
Then we need that bondage scene with Zöe, April and/or Kian most of us in the comments have talked about for a few days. We have had quite a few suggestions over at the general comment sction mind you. :)
Also, thank you for the crow wallpaper! Switched over to it immediately, it looks great :)
Congrats on the Spoken Word! That's grand!
@Don - I'm pretty sure they thought that through ;)
I love the fingerings name! This really will be an adult game :D or at least, have a bit of adult humor. Awesome!
For those who think the 'Fingerings' name was unintentional and needs to be changed, do you remember the names of the taverns in Dreamfall? The Salty Seaman and The Cock and Puss?
Yes!! Alright!! We did it! I'm overjoyed!! Got that wallpaper on within 7 seconds. Crow is great! Yes I really do want the Director's cut!! It is the one I really want now!! Lets make it happen people!! I belive in you and in RTG!
Wow Torment has skyrocketed. Well most gamers, well us older gamers say this game is among the best RPGs ever made so no wonder they are getting a ton of cash to roll around in.
Well The Longest Journey series is among th best adventure games of all time so we need more pledges but at the same time I'm very happy that we are at this stage of the game funding process.
To me The Longest Journey is the second best game I have ever played in over 25 years. Dreamfall Chapters is at a steady lucky number 7 for me on my Top 25 best games of all time list.
