      Thank you so much, @Jason! :) :)

      Congratulations. You've achieved your goal of a complete trilogy. I know your work may not done, but I can only imagine the blood, sweet, tears, and time it took to pull off your vision. The majority of kick starters don't reach this level of success.

    3. Khatie Collaborator on

      Hi everyone,

      Yes, this is exactly what has happened and thankfully you're all being super patient while I get through answering your emails. THANK YOU for your support, I will get each of you into the game ASAP.

      Huge thanks to Troll for keeping the answers coming while I was sleeping! :)


      yeah, i have a feeling that anyone who backed the original at the $50 level and backed TBS3 but NOT at a "get the game" level is having pledge manager issues. i had the same problem where it wasn't showing up in my TBS3 manager at all (not getting an option for ANY add-ons). i did get ahold of Khatie last night and now im just waiting on my key, so all it takes is an e-mail!

      for anyone who is experiencing this issue, it's likely this is what the problem is. just toss an e-mail over at .

      @Brendan Coffey : I imagine the same thing happend for you as whant happened to Stephen "Stoibs" D right under your post.
      Please send an email to to have Khatie verify your pledge and get you the key.
      It went apparently very fast for Stephen "Stoibs" D, hopefully the same will go for you.

    6. Brendan Coffey

      So, here's the thing: I backed this Kickstarter (obviously), and then when the B3 kickstarter came around, I backed for a dollar and added a bunch of the physical rewards through Pledgemanager.

      Now, when I go into Pledge Manager, I see all the things I backed for, but no actual code for Banner Saga 3.

    7. Stephen "Stoibs" D

      Yeah was very fast response :)

      I think being a backer of both of these projects is maybe causing some of these fulfillment issues.
      The email they sent me cited the fact that my key was undelivered because my pledge manager was already locked - except I shouldn't have gotten a key for the 'Banner Saga 3' entry in my pledge manager anyway since I didn't back that at 'get the game' level. (And I needed to finalize and lock that one for the physical goods I ordered)

      We needed an invitation or a way to get this original Banner Saga project into our pledge managers methinks.

    8. Germain "Troll" Saussaye on

      @Stephen "Stoibs" D : That was fast.
      @Laserschwert : Please do as Stephen "Stoibs" D did and contact to have Khatie verify your pledge and get you the key.

    9. Stephen "Stoibs" D

      Contacted support and got my key fairly quickly.
      Cheers guys.

    10. Laserschwert on

      Same problem like "Stoibs" below... was a trilogy backer and backed TBS3 for one dollar to get the art book. Can't see a way to get my key in PledgeManager...

    11. Stephen "Stoibs" D

      I can't see the original Banner Saga project in my pledge manager, just the Banner Saga 3 project (which I backed at a dollar to get updates, and later added on some physical stuff)
      Trilogy backer from here, can't see a way to get my key for the third game anywhere.

    12. Khatie Collaborator on

      @John - glad you got it sorted! :)

    13. Khatie Collaborator on

      @SinoSamba - thank you very, very much! It's in large part because of backers like you. <3

    14. Khatie Collaborator on

      Hi @Morville - the email invitations to PledgeManager have now been sent. If you did not get one or need help with the account, please let me know at Thank you! :)

    15. Khatie Collaborator on

      Hi @Teppo - the details are still being finalized for the Switch physical trilogy, but it's likely a portion of at least one of the games will need to be downloaded, hence the need for a connection. Once we have those exact details they'll be shared on social media. :)

    16. Teppo Koivukangas on

      Hey! Banner Saga trilogy physical version for Switch, it says I need to have online connection..? Does it mean that the game card doesnt have the games, and I need to download them or what?

    17. John Esh on

      Nevermind. Figured it out!

    18. John Esh on

      I think the email I used for the original Kickstarter was my old college email which is way long gone and unusable. I tried accessing Pledge Manager but I can't get anywhere with it. Any chance of help so I can get my Banner Saga 3 key?

    19. SinoSamba <(-'.'-)> on

      Congrats on finishing the trilogy!

    20. Morville O'Driscoll on

      Hi! Given the third game is being released in just over a day, is there any info about when backers from this campaign are going to get their keys? No hassle if nothing is sorted yet. :)

    21. Robert Faulkner on

      Thanks so much for the quick reply! I'll send out that email :)

    22. Khatie Collaborator on

      @Robert - yes you can. Please email support AT stoicstudio DOT com from the email you used on the first Kickstarter. Thank you. :)

    23. Khatie Collaborator on

      @Alex - yes you will receive it from us via your original Kickstarter email. :)

    24. Khatie Collaborator on

      @Jesse - yes, you will after launch on July 24, 2018. :)

    25. Robert Faulkner on

      Sorry if this has been asked before but here goes....

      I backed for all 3 games and find myself with a tremendous lack of free time lately as a result of having had kids :)

      I love the original game but never had time to grab #2 on Steam. I now have a Switch and a really long commute. Can I grab 2 & 3 on the Switch with my original pledge?


    26. ABCHEE Alex on

      Hi guys Now that banner saga 3 date had been announced it's mean backer like me from the 1st campaign we will receive a steam code ? but where ?

    27. Missing avatar

      Jesse Garrison on

      Just saw the email with the BS3 launch date and details about pre-order bonuses. Do those of us who backed for $50+ back at the beginning (and so will already be getting BS3) have access to such things automatically?

    28. Khatie Collaborator on

      Hello again, @MikeWRX. I just realized I answered what may be a Banner Saga 1 question with a Banner Saga 3 answer and I apologize for that!

      If you have a question about Banner Saga 1, please email us at and we can get you sorted out. Thank you! :)

    29. Khatie Collaborator on

      Hello @MikeWRX - thanks for your question! The desktop wallpaper has not yet been given out. The only codes backers are able to receive at this point are Banner Saga 1 and 2 after they complete the PledgeManager process and check out. The rest, including the community backer access, will be granted at a later date. Thank you for your kind words about the trilogy; we're very proud of it and humbled by all the support! :)

      Hello Stoic!

      I'm a 25$ backer; in regards to one of your previous messages to contact you here with regards to rewards issue, was the 25$ desktop wallpaper reward ever distributed? I never received a download link or copy of it. Is it possibly hidden in my Steam folder?

      Thank you in advance, and thank you for such a great game trilogy! Phenomenal work.

    31. Khatie Collaborator on

      Hi @Lathorp - I've responded again - you're all set now. :)

      Lathorp on

      @Khatie I received an email reiterating the same process as three years ago which only takes me to a 404 page on the website even when logged in. I verified my account and made sure it is logged in but nothing seems to work.

    33. Khatie Collaborator on

      @Lathorp, if you did not already - please write to us at or send a message through this Kickstarter page and we'll help you out (I think I heard from you already though). Thanks!

      Never received anything. Been checking up on Kickstarter since I have a competent pc now.

      Only me? Really?

      So they only want to completely annoy the Let's Players who might otherwise give the companies they publish for free press?

      Odd business choice.

      Either way, if anyone else has found that companies only related through Versus Evil have also blocked them after BannerSaga/Stoic/vs-evil accounts have on Twitter, please let me know.
      Still interested.

    38. Stoic 2-time creator

      Our survival mode beta for Banner Saga 2 is up and running (check out our latest KS update for more details.).

      Once again if anyone needs anything or has any troubles please don't hesitate to send us a KS message.

    39. Stoic 2-time creator

      @Celine - sorry to hear that.

    40. Céline .S. Sauvé on

      Anyone else blocked by Stoic/BannerSaga/vs-evil on Twitter finding other devs who use that publisher also blocking them out of the blue?

      (Cross referenced the companies with the publisher's main site and found that I was blocked there with the exception of a few of them.)

      So I'm fully boycotting anyone who works with VS Evil.

      Interested in knowing if anyone else has noticed this on their Twitter account or not.

    41. Stoic 2-time creator

      @Yangtian Li - Send us a KS message and we'll get you your key and info!

    42. Yangtian Li on

      Hi Stoic,

      I was the original $25 tier backer, since I have a Mac so I was waiting for the Steam release, and I don't think I have received any keys to play the original game or the art book PDF. Can you let me know how to get these? Thank you!


    43. Valeriy on


      You are welcome! Good luck! :-D

    44. Stoic 2-time creator

      Thanks for the kind words Valeriy - really, that sort of comment does mean a lot to us and does indeed teach us. Thank you.

    45. Valeriy on

      So, the whole *bright* idea of Steam-DRM-only release flopped big time...

      With this move and no Linux support for ep 2 and 3 (and, honestly, ep. 1 also) I can not say I pity you and your *brilliant* GOG release during GOG sale with "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines" as a big bully present.

      Be ready for another flop.

    46. Stoic 2-time creator

      Yup - let us know if you have any more trouble Nick! Thanks @Glaring :)

      This may be a dumb question, but I can't figure out how to send a message on Kickstarter. Can anyone assist?

    49. Céline .S. Sauvé on

      Glad to see. And the release thread on GOG is a mixed bag, but it appears to be more on your favour with people glad for the most part that it's not only on STEAM-DRM. (Though the current GOG sale might stunt the release there a bit.)

    50. Stoic 2-time creator

      @Celine - please see our latest update for more info.
