      I was also disappointed tonight when I unboxed the dvd case instead of unboxing a box. (Had intended to place it alongside the other games in the series.) Tshirt is nice.

    2. Giuseppe Pantaleo on February 17, 2015

      You didn't just get a physical copy for $100 though. You also got a t-shirt and a host of other goodies from the previous reward tiers.

      @ Frogacuda (It's a shame people misunderstood the meaning of the physical copy tier.)
      So it´s a shame to pay $115 (100 + 15 shipping) and expect a big box like other adventure game kickstarter projects offered and delivered at $80+ pledge levels?
      Interesting.
      PS. You don´t understand if you don´t care about boxed games at all.

      THIS is SO wrong :(
      Here is a pic about the Tesla Effect "box" compared to a real Overseer box:
      http://fs1.directupload.net/images/150217/uyz6tt7y.jpg

      I think I've asked about the box (size) before I upgraded my pledge level!
      Because I always ask to be sure that we´re talking about a real box!
      Have to check my e-mails..

      So not right :((((((((((((((((((((((
      Sorry but I won´t back the next Tex game.
      Wait for the digital distribution and by it discounted (because it will be discounted directly at launch like Tesla Effect).

      How disappointed I am? THAT MUCH:
      Expectations vs delivered:

      Game was great.
      T-Shirt is ok.
      Soundtrack is good.
      Soundtrack two (Jazz) is great.
      DVD case is crap!
      Not only the size but what happend to the print?
      Colors (yellow-red-proportion) seems messed up!!

      Disapointed to get only a DVD keep case and not an actual "collector's box"

      So far i received from KS projects those 'boxes' :

      -Larry Reloaded : a big old US 90's sized box. very thin carboard ans only 'paper sleeves' storage for the game disc and the soundtrack CD.... but a big box (and a lot of other goodies : shot glass, pen, fresh oral spray, and a condom !.
      -Giana Project/Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams : A 300 copies limited strong cardboard folder containing the game disc, a making of DVD, the soundtrack CD and an exclusve printed manual. Got from lower tiers : the soundtrack CD in its jewel case, and the game in its DVD case).
      -Divinity Original Sin : a DVD-case sized strong cardboard box : containing the game in its DVD case, a printed manual and many goodies (stickers, playing cards, cloth map, soundtrack CD in its cardboard sleeve, crafting cards...)
      -Battle Worlds - Kronos : I actually backed only for the 'DVD edition', the collector's Edition was a metal box with room for the game DVD box, all the manuals and a card game. The DVD edition came with a classic DVD keep case and a cardboard folder, and printed manuals.
      -Wasteland 2 : the 'boxed' edition came as a big carboard box. The collector's Edition was a metal 'ammo case' box.
      -Broken Sword 5 : a big 90's style strong cardboard box.

      According to 'mobygames' a 'boxed' game comes in a BOX. A DVD case is either a DVD Case or a DVD keep case, but it's not a box.

      I like the game and I'm happy it was funded on KS. but when I've choose the 'Exclusive Boxed Collectors Edition of "Project Fedora" tier, I didn't expect a poor DVD case.

    6. Gonchi on February 16, 2015

      Expected an actual box, bitterly disappointed I'm getting a cheap, generic DVD case instead. Ugh.

      T-Shirt looks nice at least.

    7. Frogacuda on February 16, 2015

      I have to admit I find it utterly absurd that anyone thinks cardboard makes it more collectible or more special, though. A physical copy of this digital only game is a very rare item and a great physical collectible for any fan, made no rarer for the fact that it's plastic and not cardboard.

    8. Frogacuda on February 16, 2015

      It's a shame people misunderstood the meaning of the physical copy tier. I never thought I was getting anything other than a hard case copy, and would have been disappointed if I got a big, flimsy, and easily damaged box instead. Kitsch value aside I wonder why anyone would want such a thing. They were horrible back then.

      But of course it's always a drag when people expect one thing and get another. So I feel for people that misunderstood, even if I'm glad we got a case and not a cardboard box.

    9. Diana on February 16, 2015

      I received my parcel today. I pledged for a "Box" and now I have only an "DVD case" ... that is not my deal guys!

    10. Russell Deitch on February 16, 2015

      I have a game in a DVD case which I will probably give away. Everything else is ok.
      As far as KS is concerned, you should deliver as defined. This counts as another reason why I have given up backing.

    11. Giuseppe Pantaleo on February 16, 2015

      Sweet, my copy came in the mail! http://postimg.org/image/7hfw7wr7r/

      I really feel like I need to bring this to the forefront so there's no gray area here (and there really shouldn't have been one to begin with).
      As of now, I have already received 4 "Boxed" editions of backed projects at $100 tier or close to it give or take a few $. Listed below are projects and the descriptions that they gave for those tiers.
      BROKEN SWORD GOLD MEMBER - All above rewards plus: • Boxed Kickstarter special edition of the Game = Result was an actual game in a physical box.
      Divinity Original Sin Kickstarter Box Copy with Printed Manual, Soundtrack CD and Cloth Map = Result was a game in a physical box (and a very nice box at that).
      Shadow Gate - The game ships in a never-to-be-made-again COLLECTORS BOX created specifically for displaying the game in all its glory = Result was a game in a physical box (also a very nice box at that.)
      Moebius - We have added the big box edition of Moebius to the $100 tier. = Result was a physical cardboard box which contained the game (2 games actually, but that's another story).
      Now here is a description that clearly states to expect a game in a "dvd case" should the funding goal be reached (which unfortunately it had not). And this stretch goal was at the $30 tier.
      Delaware St. John: Asylum of The Lost"
      If $25,000 stretch goal is met, everyone at this tier and higher receive a special DVD edition of the game. This can be easily interpreted as a dvd inside a dvd case and no one would be expecting here to receive a dvd inside a "box".
      So I think all the examples above make it abundantly clear as to what is/was meant by a "boxed" edition vs. a game inside a dvd case.
      * Exclusive Boxed Collectors Edition of "Project Fedora" at $100 tier and above clearly falls into the former category of the 4 games listed. So as to why this "Exclusive Boxed Collectors Edition of "Project Fedora"" description wasn't honored is anyone's guess. But I can't help but think that myself and others who contributed to the $100 tier and above got a short end of the stick here.

      Oh... I'm a bit disappoinrted there was no in-box manual / documentation in the collector edition. But as I read the description, yeah, I cannot say there was any lie in it. Thank you for the journey anyway. :)

      I agree no boxed collectors edition should ever come in a DVD case. Granted the idea here is to make the game but should they ever want to go down this road again the way they handled incentives is going to turn everyone off. (or at least it should) I know I felt they REALLY botched the incentives. As for the game I quit about half way through kinda a snooze.

    17. Lynne Mangold on February 11, 2015

      I have thrown all my other boxes out to save room & I have put them all in plastic sleeves that are filed in a leather box so it doesn't worry me at all. I think I will be disappointed however if I don't receive my detective box in a collectors box as it was worded that way

    18. David Bywater on February 11, 2015

      I'm not fazed by this at all - they put their heart and money into the game and that's where it counted

    19. Overmann on February 11, 2015

      I was also expecting a big box, or at least a box.
      But I'm with Shawn Shinn a little disappointed, but not heart broken.

      The amount it cost would lead you to believe it to be a big box, compared with other kickstarters.

      But at least its not a steam key like Broken Sword.
      Rev did fix that, and sent DRM free Discs to all the backers (at on extra cost) who wanted them.

      Just sayin.

      I, too, expected a box instead of a DVD case. My pledge was mostly to help get the game funded, so I'm not too upset, but I am a little disappointed. The t-shirt is great, though!

      I'm also extremely disappointed that we've been given crappy DVD cases being passed off as a "Boxed Collector's Edition". They need to fix this!

    22. Paskarl (k0SH) on February 10, 2015

      Why?
      1. Other adventure game projects offered (big) boxed copies for less/ same ammount of money.
      2. DVD cases were most the time ~$50 or below.
      3. Others, including me, were simply naive to think that a "Boxed Collectors Edition" is a (big) box and not a (crappy cheap) DVD case.
      4. Producing a big thin cardbox isn´t really expensive at all, it's cheap!
      5. Most important one: Big Finish Games did a wonderfull job with boxed Tex games in the past! Others, inclduing me, thought they appreciate their fans not only game-wise but collectore-wise too. This (crappy) DVD case looks so aweful next to the boxed copies of Tex games!
      This all is - of course - only understandable when you´re collecting games and care.

    23. Andres Janssens on February 10, 2015

      With the information we have now, it seems as if they never intended to have a BIG box manufactured for the kickstarter backers. So how did we, including myself, all get the idea that this box was going to be a big box?

      That´s a slap in the face of every boxed Tex games collector!!!!!

    25. Paskarl (k0SH) on February 10, 2015

      So the "boxed" game is a DVD case?
      This is so not ok!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Heavily disappointed!
      Will support a new Tex kickstarter only on a digital level - if I´m going to support it.
      Man.. this sucks so bad!
      And will look like crap compared to the awesome boxes of Tex 1-5 !!!

      Menacexp.
      Going by that description for $500 tier, it should be no different for $100 tier as far as the boxed copy is being described as "Exclusive Boxed Collectors Edition of "Project Fedora". Both have "Box" in their description, and yet for some reason, I got no box, just the game in the DVD case. So I'm not so sure as to the "Box" making its appearance at $500, if at $100 it was a no show. I could be wrong though and only time will tell.

    27. Chris Clarke on February 9, 2015

      I think the special box is for $500 and up

      "The Ultimate Detective box set of "Under a Killing Moon", "Pandora Directive", and "Overseer" in special edition Collector’s Box"

      Alex...yup...that's what I think of when I think of "boxed" as well. A DVD case is NOT a box. Very disappointed in what I received.

      lxlvl99 on February 9, 2015

      I just received the physical goodies at the $100 tier. For some reason, I envisioned the game to be included in a card board box like the previous Tex Murphy games, but apparently, the boxed game in this case was referring to it being a dvd case. Still very happy to finally get it in my hands.

    30. Bill on February 8, 2015

      Looks like $75.00 level backers have started receiving their t-shirts. Anyone got theirs yet? Some $100.00 level backers have started getting their goodies as well.

    31. Bill on January 30, 2015

      On the forum it says "Looks like we're about 12 days since the last update.
      More than 50% of the packages have been assembled, taped up, and are ready for the labels and pickup.
      (Courtney and Bobby have been working those boxes, and getting everything together)

      We're really just waiting...trying to give money to the USPS to print those labels.
      Account information and everything have been submitted...we just haven't heard back from them.

      If you want to see a recognizable face representing TruGolf...go HERE" so things look like they are happening.

    32. Ryan M on January 29, 2015

      I'm seriously apprehensive the incentives will ever roll out. I'm almost at the point where I've completely dismissed them.The whole excuse to wait until they were all available seems pretty ridiculous to me. If you can send a message to say we're not sending them to avoid confusion, can't you just send a message to say your sending what you have as it arrives? I love Tex Murphy and Big Finish games for bringing it back but this whole incentive thing is leaving me with a bad feeling that the incentives aren't going to happen.
