Hello everyone!

Did you hear the exciting news? We've launched! The game is out on Steam, GOG.com and the Humble Store.

Your keys are being mailed out to you and you should all have them by the end of the day at the latest. Please check your junk mail folders if you can't see them. Otherwise get in touch if they haven't arrived and we'll sort it out for you.

Release Trailer

We need all the help we can get to spread the word about the game, so please share our release trailer far and wide!

Steam and GOG Reviews

The other thing you can do that will really help our launch is to review the game on Steam or GOG. This has a direct effect on how long Tahira stays on the front page of Steam. We thank you for your support.

Reddit AMA!

We've just started an AMA on r/games. Jump over and have a chat with us if you'd like any insight into the game's development. We'd especially love to hear from our backers.

That's all for now!

Take care of yourselves,

Peter C

      Hey folks, sorry that's happened, send us a Kickstarter message and we'll give you the key through that instead of email.

      Well this kind of surprised me, mostly because I only skimmed the previous update.
      Congratulations on the successful launch @Creator, this is awesome.
      Next stop "SUPER FRESH ULTIMATE TAHIRA X!" ^_^

      Thanks, Howard Kistler and Whale Hammer Games. Reading that post, I think that the choice of DRM-free on Humble plus Steam key is good enough for me. GOG key is nice, but normally devs seem to update the Steam version more quickly, so I kind of like to have that option.

      @ET3D
      Get in touch through the message system if you want to chat about the GOG Key.

      @Howard
      Thanks Howard! :)
      Yeah including it in the survey would have been ideal, but we found out so late in development, it wasn't feasible. In hindsight we could have asked, in the event of getting onto GOG, but we didn't think about it at the time!

      @Rebecca
      Thank you!

      @Stephen
      We're good friends with the Warlock devs! You can't go wrong with either :)

      Looking at my email timestamps I technically got my Humble Steam key link about 10 minutes before this launch update.
      Would it have been nice to give us backers keys and/or the ability to preload prior to launch? Well, yeah definitely and that's what most other kickstarters do. But it's not *that* big of a deal at the end of the day.

      My biggest dilemma now is that Both this and Warlock of firetop mountain kickstarters launched their games within a day of each other, and I'll need to juggle and decide which one to play :P

      @ET3D - There was an Update where you needed to contact the devs if you wanted a GOG key instead of a generic DRM-free one. It should have been part of the survey but wasn't.

      We get our keys AFTER the game is available to everybody else? Good job. No really, I hope you will ask me to support you again, see what happens....

      Congratulations on your launch!

      There's a GOG key? I got a Humble link, and that does include a DRM-free version, but only a Steam key, far as I can see.

      Hurrah, it's Tahira Day! Got my GOG key and redeemed it. Thanks very much for also making the KS backer content available through GOG. That is deeply appreciated and shows off your professionalism as devs. Best of luck with the game release!
