Have a question?
Hi, Garkham. As I've just been chased for (international) shipping charges, dispatch can't be too long away.
Active Russell, did you have any response for your inquiery in physical rewards on the official website ? ;) I'm not panicking because they personnaly answered me that they will make some mailings when they are ready to ship, but it would be good to have some fresh news about it. :)
(bigfinishgames.com, that is).
@Rob, ask Steve on the Tex Murphy forum.
@Russell/Steve: Thanks for the response! I suspect it was sent to my old (inactive) email, which I only updated recently on Kickstarter (which also explains why I wasn't getting any updates for a while...LOL). So, how do I go about getting my key re-sent to me?
@Rob, from Steve @ BFG -
"IF you haven’t received your key, don’t panic.
It could be a delay in the servers, but more likely its:
A) The Code went to the email you backed the project with, not the one you expected to be used
B) Caught in your spam filter. There is content (strange characters and a link) in the email that can trigger some filters. Please check."
ETA I'm a $100 backer too.
Hi, Rob. We did have a Steam key on the day of release. Gog keys followed a few days later.
Are the $100 backers getting their physical boxed game anytime soon? Thanks.
I'm really puzzled regarding why we didn't have immediate access to the game on Steam the day it was released (or, well, within a few months of the release), Yes, I know we're supposed to get the physical, boxed game (assuming you contributed enough, which I'm sure you all did), but why not make the access code the same as the one we'll get once the game is shipped? We would have finished the game by now, and started clamoring for more, from the sound of the reviews.
I've asked about physical rewards in the backer's section of the website. If there's a response, I'll post it here.
Ok I think I have been patient but..... Can we get some sort of update on where you are with Physical rewards? I am starting to wonder if these are ever going to be released.
Hey adventure games fans.... Paul Cuisset (The Stealth Affair/Operation Stealth, Flashback quest of identity, Future Wars, Cruise for a Corpse, but also in other genres Moto Racer and Darkstone) is coming back to adventure games with Subject 13 : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1993213058/subject-13-by-paul-cuisset.
Update on physical rewards...?
Just getting around to playing this finally (I know, been busy!). It is everything I could have hoped for. Great work.
Well, that was fun. So... When's the next one?
@TexMurphy78, you can still update and validate your address through the backer's download page.
I have moved and would again change the address? ;)
Good to hear about rewards I was starting to wonder.
This is the official response -
"Physical rewards are being worked on at the moment, there is a lot to fulfill but we are getting there. We will hopefully have more news for you on the delivery of the physical incentives soon! Your feedback has been heard, and your patience is appreciated!"
I doubt the patches have anything to do with it. I imagine we'll hear something soon enough.
No physical rewards have been sent out yet. It will be a little while since they're still doing patches.
Has anyone received there boxed version yet or does anyone know when they will be shipped ?
After Tesla Effect I'd be more than willing to shell money to a new Tex game. It was such a well done experience for me, that despite I've said it a couple of time that I'd prefer the future games to be done from the profits made from the this game, I'd be more than happy to jump in the train again.
Common guys lets see the next Tex Murphy Kickstarter underway so that we don't have to wait another 7 years.
You better believe the Mutant League is on standby. You allready have a green screen. :-)
Riggo: On the flip side, they really stretched their budget and made this game a lot larger than they had intended, so it's not like your money didn't go to good use.
Nevermind, found this: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/…
Anyone else trying to play it on a Microsoft Surface Pro? It's ok expect for the video.
just wanted to say thanks to the team. its so amazing that after all this time, you actually did make the best tex game (in my opinion). im so happy and satisfied. i would gladly pledge another 100 for another game ;D
Thanks Russell. However, coming from a backer who upped his pledge just for the idea of an in-game golf mini-game, I am not real happy! I would have saved myself over $100! -_-
I didn't really need a shot glass....
If anybody is still have issues with the codes, or has not received theirs yet (AND they have checked their trash folder and Spam folder.... AND are aware that if you were a BETA level backer you would already have access to the game on GOG without the need for a code). as Luke suggested, contact: http://www.bigfinishgames.com/contact ...you can also try the forums at that same sight. Both usually are addressed fairly promptly, but please also be patient as the same team working hard to deliver updates and requested patches to the game will also be addressing these issues! Thank you! :)
There you go, Riggo. You should be able to read this.
I will, Riggo, when I can get on. They're having network issues at present.
Russell... Can you post the official response here? I don't do forums.
@Eric, there is a stickied thread in the Backer Discussion forum - here:
Riggo, that's all you're going to get. Sorry. You need to read the official response on the Big Finish Games site / Project Fedora forums.
Finished doing all 3 endings. Very well done! .... but, where is my golf!?!?!?
Update 26 June, 7th 2012
If we exceed funding by 30% ($585,000+): Another expansion of the story (including puzzles, gameplay, locations and characters), ingame golf game, and Live Orchestra for the games' music.
I don't believe a broken simulator counts as an ingame golf game...
Just finished. According to Steam I spent 20 hours or so.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD.
My ending was the 'Happily Ever After' one. Did fool around with the conversations but most of the key choices are resonably far back so will take a while to get the others.
I don't see the solution in the forums, kinda hard to navigate
Ignore me... the keys apparently hit my inbox a couple hours ago... thanks for sorting it out.
I still haven't gotten keys for Steam or GOG yet. Sounds like other people are enjoying the game though.
I'd be in for another Tex Murphy Kickstarter!
David: BFG has all the rights, so if this one sells enough, they'll do another. But that's still a big unknown at this point. Maybe another Kickstarter if it comes down to it?
@Eric, you will find a solution to that error message on the Big Finish Games website in the Project Fedora forums.
I can't get my GOG code to work. This is the error message..."To redeem Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure you need to own Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure"
On Day 2 and just loving it! It's a beautiful game, boys! I think I started to well up as I watched the opening intro scene, I was so happy! THIS is the return to adventure gaming as we used to know it! THANK YOU!!!!!
Please note...I still wait for my steam code....used the contact link last night and a week ago. So far, no response....
Mr. Van Rhoon, thank you and everyone at BFG for this EPIC game. Considering the budget, the small team, you all did one hell of an amazing job! Thanks so much!!!!
Please note that GOG codes were not sent to backers BETA level and above. This is because the original Beta codes that you received should translate into full game download codes on GOG. Simply refresh your store and the full game will be available.
