      Hi Drake,

      According to our records, a Steam key was sent to your gmail the day of its early access release in March of 2016.

      If you can't find it, simply write to support@parabole.ca and we'll be happy to resend it to your email address.

      Cheers :)

      So, I got a steam key for the VR version... but I got the GoG key originally and never got a steam key. The VR version on Steam requires the base game on Steam.
      Was there a place I was supposed to get the GoG game upgraded to Steam and I missed it? I haven't played the game at all waiting for the VR version.
      Thanks!

      Sorry I just asked about the boxed copy again...now I see your May response...thanks

      The console thingy is managed by Deep Silver and all information and builds we have are supposed to follow an embargo date & time, so I guess that is not intentional. Still, the embargo lifts tomorrow in the morning, so the wait shouldn't be too long.

      P.S. Apparently it’s live on the AU PS Store, in case that wasn’t intentional: https://store.playstation.com/en-au/product/EP4062-CUSA07256_00-VRKONAVRBUNDLE00

      Wow, nice response time.

      Sounds good — I hadn’t followed the project closely and had assumed VR support was cancelled before seeing the PSVR leak. Best of luck with it.

    7. Parabole 2-time creator on

      @Daniel: It is more a leak than a proper announcement ;p But we'll never release anything on console before the PC, sooooo :)

      Any update / release date on PC VR support now that the PSVR version has been announced?

    9. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Hi Sandy,

      Kona comes in four parts and its boxed copy will arrive only when these four parts will be released. We are discussing to have one earlier than that but nothing to confirm.

      The VR version is coming (really) soon. Sorry that I can't say more at the moment, we're bound by a contract.

      Hi

      What happened to my boxed copy...never produced or simply I never received one?

      Will there be a VR version please?

      Thanks

      Sandy

      Hi Laudrac! The plan hasn't been killed; you should expect an update / release date for this in the next month :)

    12. Laudrac on

      Just wondering if you killed your plan for a VR version? Loved to play Kona in the first demo version in VR

    13. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Thanks for the good words :)

    14. Evan Blyth on

      Yeah it's great to see that it made it to Switch, but I can't make myself buy the same games twice xD I'd love to play it portable though

      Hey, I just saw the game on the Nintendo Switch E-store. Its great that the game has made it this far, Im happy to see it on so many platforms.

    16. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Hi Laudrac,

      We are currently working on our next project, but it is still too soon to tell when it will be released. As soon as we know more, we'll let everyone know :)

      Cheers,
      - Jeff

      Hi creators,

      Are you working on the next part? I backed for the season pas and I think there are 3 more seasons to go. Any dates planned?

    18. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Bonjour Marie-Andree,

      Il semble que Alex et moi vous avons répondu presque simultanément! Je vous ai envoyé un message privé sur Kickstarter, et vous pourrez aussi retrouver votre clé dans vos courriels.

      Au plaisir,
      - Jeff

      Where can I get the Steam key? It seems I haven’t received it.

    20. Captain Bosh on

      Finally got around to playing through this and really enjoyed it, great job. Turns out one of my friends from college was your QA manager too (spotted him in the credits), small world :)

    21. Parabole 2-time creator on

      @Mark Kevin Maginity The easiest way would be to reboot the Steam app. If there is no game updating when it restarts, it means Kona is up to date. We will probably add a version number to make it easier though in future patches.

      I know that Steam is supposed to update automatically, but is there some easy way to confirm my copy is up to date?

    23. Parabole 2-time creator on

      :D

    24. Laudrac on

      Kona is great wow you really made it 91% positive feedback on steam. I am proud of you.

    25. Parabole 2-time creator on

      @Lisa Fakes You posted in our Steam forums, right? :P
      Just in case, there is an option to disable it in the Controls Options menu ;)

      Hi there! I received 2 keys and I think I was only supposed to be 1? Or was the second key for the season pass? I backed at the season pass level. Just want to know if I can gift the second key or need it for the SP or if it was an error. Thanks!

    29. Eric Sperrazza on

      it works now idk why I didn't think of that haha thanks :)

    30. Parabole 2-time creator on

      That's an issue with Unity games and nVidia drivers. Try the following: Right click on the game executable (kona.exe): Run with graphic processor > High Performance NVIDIA processor. If that fix the issue, you can (1) repeat that each time or (2) select "change default graphic processor" from the same right-click menu, and then add Kôna to the list and change its default settings. Let me know if that works :) Sorry for the inconvenience!

    31. Eric Sperrazza on

      @parabole yes its a laptop im running win 10 with nvidia 965M, i7-4710mq, 20gb ram.

    32. Parabole 2-time creator on

      What are your computer specs? Is it a laptop?

    33. Eric Sperrazza on

      sadly when I go to start a new game my game crashes I tried a handful of things and nothing really helped and even when I start the game the snow background lags very much even on low graphics quality :(

    34. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Hi!

      Glad you had fun even with those problems that came your way ;)

      You can't go over the wall in this build, as it would spoil the story, so that part is perfectly normal.

      For the truck thing, do you know approximately where you were? Was it close to the icewall? I would like to try and replicate it to see what happened.

      For the stuff you can't find, if you want help, please email me at jeff@parabole.ca. I don't want to spoil anything for other players :P

      Cheers,
      Jeff

      Other than those handful of problems, I really enjoyed the gameplay and narration.

      Just played through the beta as much as I could, and I got stuck on a few of the puzzles. I can't seem to find one of the components to fix the generator at the gas station. I've found several hidden keys, but not the one to open the shed at the house across the road from the logging camp. I ran my truck off the road heading north out of town and can't get it unstuck. I followed the trail into the forest, had a vision, but I think maybe the vision is not completing because two of the four spirits are just standing there. Not sure how to get further north to where I presume the mansion is located.

    37. Parabole 2-time creator on

      As soon as the journal and the map are fixed, it will be easier to find your way. We're working on it ;)

    38. Laudrac on

      Thanks to the creator the Beta is really cool it runs very well and it is more dificult to find the correct way in this game. So i am kind of lost after the petrol station.

    39. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Sorry about that. As soon as it's ready, we'll let you know ;)

    40. Andy Rogers on

      A bit disappointing that the beta is PC only

    41. Parabole 2-time creator on

      @Carl It's simply a question for stats, so just answer 1 to Xbox One and random numbers for the other 2 and you' good to go ;)

    42. Carl on

      @Parabola. I cannot get the survey to work on question 3. When I go to that question it shows only PS3. I choose n/a and then Xbox One and Wii show, but they then only have the the option n/a. Console option I want, only one I own, is Xbox One.

      Help!

    43. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Hi Laudrac!

      Unfortunately, the beta won't be available for VR. There are still a lot of optimization to do, so we focus on PC version for now.

    44. Laudrac on

      Thanks, so will play the beta on Windows with DK2 and hopefully the real game on SteamOS with HTCVive :-)

    45. Parabole 2-time creator on

      It's part of the plan, but the release date might be a little different. All I can say for now is that it will be soon after PC release.
      Jeff

    46. Laudrac on

      Is there a plan to also deploy Kona for Linux? Just migrated my PC to SteamOS and really like it. Ohterwise i migrate back to play your game :-)

    47. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Thanks for the comment!
      The voice wasn't computer generated. It's a voice actor from Ontario, Canada. We were looking for a voice that blends well with the atmosphere of the game. Sorry you didn't like it in the trailer. We hope you'll like it in the game once it's out ;)

      Jeff

    48. Red Scotch Software on

      Visually, the trailer looked good, not a fan of the voiceover actor you used. Was it computer generated?

    49. Parabole 2-time creator on

      Thanks! :)
      The survey for rewards should be sent in November.
      For the Beta, it should be released in November, but we don't have a date yet. I'll make sure to keep everyone updated once it's ready.
      Jeff
