There is news coming that is leaving a bad taste in Linux supporter's mouths: Projects that reach Linux stretch goals being given indeterminate times for (or even starting on) the Linux version of games they paid for. Few KS projects get released on time. The average release date for KS game is 1-2 years late (not a big deal I guess), but please try not to do the "we'll get the Linux version out eventually" like Jane Jensen and a couple others are doing. (9 months are being estimated for Jane Jensen's Morbius if ever) I see a bunch of people who no longer want to support games promising a Linux version because they feel there are a lot of not so honorable game developers on KS. Please don't let us down. Many us backed this who are are counting on their Linux versions in a reasonable time frame. We bank on people's integrity here at KS (literally). If it's late, at least plan for a definite release (within 3-4 months we'd be happy with) of our Linux versions after the MS Windows/Mac versions. Anyone releasing the Linux version simultaneously with the others gets extra points in my book Thanks in advance.
So, those t-shirts have been sitting in those boxes for two months now? :D
Where is an update? 2 months and nothing. Did the beer money run out? ;-)
Thanks always enjoy these awesome updates and your transparency.
Regarding Zoe's new face, I know some effort has been made to change her back slightly to how she appeared in Dreamfall, but would it be possible to go even farther? I know some backers like the new look, but to me it's almost like a completely different character now. She wasn't exactly unattractive in Dreamfall, nor did her features seem implausible, so I'm not sure why the change is being received as an improvement. She felt like a specific, unique character in Dreamfall, whereas now she feels more generic.
@Palindrome Bob: The t-shirts are sent separately anyway, since it's from a separate location etc, and everyone has paid for the additional shipping anyway. I suppose it would be harder for RTG to organize it so that it arrives together with the game.
Rakel said on the new forum that the t-shirts are VERY close to hitting the post office. And that it's still quite a lot of logistics involved but that "T-SHIRT IS COMING" :D
@Russel: Badges still aren't there, and no estimate on when they will be implemented, but they are working on it. Some people are very impatient about the badges, so hopefully it won't be too long.
Great news! Thank you, thank you!
I´m always sooo excited when I see new e-mail about DC update, it forces me to stop doing everything else and concentrate just on this beautiful bunch of new information :-)
And even if I didn´t participate much in the original forum (what was wrong with me? :O),
I would like to change it in the new forum so I can feel to be part of this magic (and scientific) world in more intense way :-)
Can´t wait for T-shirts,
can´t wait for how many fans will be put in Crowma by Crow´s new fancy look (:-D),
can´t wait for the game itself!
RTG rules ;-) thx, take care and cya
Please drop a message/email around before t-shirts so I can check where I am at the time!
T-shirts in a separate shipment? No need for me, I can wait for it to come when the rest of my rewards ship.

Thanks for the tip, Tina. I'm now on the new forum. What about badges?
@Kraken - The new forum is the redthreadgames/forum one. The old one (undreaming) will slowly die for now, so people have time to move over.
And yes, the new forum also includes a Draugen subforum. But we already talked about Draugen on the old forum, it's just going to be more organized now :)
Oh noes, I knew I should have bought the T-shirt :'(. It looks great.
Wow, based on my experience with Gone Home; Sir, You Are Being Hunted; and Kerbal Space Program, I'm guessing my 2012 MacBook Pro will struggle with Unity doing stuff that pretty. Better get saving!
nice update...cant wait to play this game and start a longest journey home kickstarter asap...lol
Wait so now there is two official forums for the game:
http://redthreadgames.com/forum/ > DFC
Which one is it?
Loving the look of Crow, spot on! Also Enu-Mar Sand'ya looks real nice, she looks like a character you can instantly bond with in game, tho I guess that all depends on her personality xD
Everything is looking so nice. And Crow, nice to see him on his feet again.
Great news! And what about forum badge?
Awesome update, thanks!
Very informative update. Thanks! Crow is looking stunning!
BEST UPDATE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay for Crow. They lied he's the best side-kick not second best! Crow is second best to nobody... except maybe the person he's side-kicking. But love Crow so much and so many interesting hints.
Soon(tm), very soon(tm). Bwhahahahaha.
So, I think you may have mentioned this on Facebook, but Enu is NOT the third playable character, right? When I hear things like "Twilight Child," I start to wonderin'...
Great update! Crow is lookin' good!
Yay! Cool updates on the game. That girl in that last game picture look interesting. Don't think I've seen that race in the previous games.... Also, YAY! T-shirts in boxes! :D
Crow looks beyond brilliant. Also I must have one of those t-shirts, otherwise my life will not be complete since I am a librarian and a fan of Crow.
Good to see that things are progressing well. I don't think I ordered a T-shirt (unless one comes automatically with my pledge), but they look very nice anyway. Any chance we might finally get our backer badges on the new forums? ;-)
It's very cool to see actual news of actual progress on actual gameplay, instead of just convention stuff! Whoo hoo! Now I need to go re-play the first two games because a lot of that went over my head...
DAT CROW !
I am so so so so [...] so so excited about this game.
I mean... DAT CROW !
"What's going on in the ongoing saga of the backer T-shirts?" Woah careful, you can't use the S word anymore in this context... ;)
Loving the Crowster! #crowprance
Ooooooh, I'm excited! Keep up the good work!
