      Did anyone ever get a Google Play code for backing a tablet version tier? I got an apk download like a year ago that didn't work, so it'd be nice to get the actual Play version so it can get updates and be easily transferred to future devices. And, one would hope, actually work.

      This game is better played on a computer anyway. Not a real fan of tablet games!

    4. Jack Hepburn Raine on September 7, 2015

      are we still getting developer videos?

    5. Ben Phillips on August 28, 2015

      Update on the tablet versions, please? Even "Still working on it, nothing new to report" beats radio silence. Thanks!

    6. Kim Cameron on March 27, 2015

      Any updates on the tablet versions? When spending the extra ~$40 on my pledge I wasn't expecting 7+ months to be able to play the game - at this point, if it's going to be much longer, curious if downgrading the pledge is possible (in which case I'd just play the PC version)

      Whoops forgot to mention its called Project Scissors: Night Cry.

    8. Jamie Dutton on February 11, 2015

      Thought some of ya'll might be interested in this one:
      It's from the same people who did Clocktower and is supposed to be the spiritual successor! I'm really excited since I'm a big fan of the series.

      Got my Box two days ago and I have to say it looks really amazing - thank you very much! :)

    10. Dustin Gray on November 20, 2014

      I received my COLLECTORS BOX and it looks amazing!!!! Love the cloth map! Thanks guys!

      on November 11, 2014

      Got my CE Box! Very nice quality. Cloth map very nice and comparable to days of yore...

    12. Zojoi 2-time creator on November 7, 2014

      @Chris - Yep. Both are being worked on. Just taking longer than we had hoped.

    13. Chris McGee on November 5, 2014

      @Zojoi - Thanks for a beautiful remastering of the game! I'm enjoying it so far and I think that the new radial menu is a much better way to go than the clustering of verbs at the top of the screen.
      Question: Are the Acolyte ($45 tier)-specific rewards still on their way? The Dev Videos is on the list at the Humble page, but not available. And the hint/comic is nowhere to be seen on the Humble page. Status report on these items? (And if you've already sent out a message regarding the status of these items, I apologize for asking.)

    14. Zojoi 2-time creator on October 31, 2014

      @Jeffry - We're fixing a few bugs that we found in the build we uploaded to Steam and GoG. We hope to have those done this weekend and then we will update yer humble accounts.

      @Alex - Saw your review of the box btw ;)

      @Goblin, Jester - Thank you! ^_^

      I received my box set today. Very nice!

    16. Jeffry Paul Zander on October 30, 2014

      Where do we go to get the recent update for Mac (installed locally, not through Steam)?

      Got my big box and it's GORGEOUS!!! Very nicely done, guys!

    18. GoblinTown on October 27, 2014

      That sounds like a really great quality of life update. Thanks much!

    19. Zojoi 2-time creator on October 24, 2014

      We started shipping boxes on Monday. We're going as fast as we can, shipping out what we can each day between working on the game.

    20. Lark on September 25, 2014

      Much props to Zojoi. Great to get a GOG key without a hassle. I just want to say Thanks!

    21. terrisus on September 24, 2014

      If you haven't received your key yet, send an email to

    22. Jamie Vann

      So I remembered I kickstarted this and I realize that I haven't received my game keys to download it, nor have I received any of my other digital rewards. I did just check my existing Humble Store account and no entry exists for me to download the game there.

      So, what do I need to do to get my rewards? Thanks!

    23. Jack Hepburn Raine on September 17, 2014

      Any idea when dev videos comic will come out?

    24. Frodo

      Great to see this on GOG. Thanks Zojoi, for giving us GOG codes. ( :

    25. Zojoi 2-time creator on September 16, 2014

      @all - Just woke up. As Gonchi points out, the game is on GOG now. If you were waiting for a key for this, shoot us off an email at Thanks!

    26. Gonchi on September 16, 2014

      Shadowgate is finally out on

      @Ian, Per last update, I don't think physical copies has been mailed out YET. In the meantime, the digital copy is worth the wait though I am stuck.

    28. Jack Hepburn Raine on August 29, 2014

      Read previous updates I'm sure it already has been.

    29. Ian Witt on August 29, 2014

      Physical copies? Seriously, anyone? I've asked here, sent an email and checked all the message boards. When is the physical version being mailed out? Simple question.

    30. Missing avatar

      Kemtis on August 28, 2014

      Anyone got a hint? I am stuck and Yorick is not helping either.

    31. Ian Witt on August 25, 2014

      Did I miss when the physical games were being mailed out? When is this happening?

    32. Jack Hepburn Raine on August 23, 2014

      wonder when the comic and dev videos will be ready?

    33. Ashley Mackay on August 23, 2014

      Oh yeh, I have received my soundtrack - just checked my list! *smacks self*. Just goes to show how long we've waited for this game to come out :(

    34. Mike McGannon on August 22, 2014

      So who has beat the game already?

      Anyone going to post a walkthrough on any review sites?

    35. Jean-Marc Therrien on August 22, 2014

      Send a mail to Zojoi if you haven't got your soundtrack code. I did it and I have it now. Really worth it. The game is awesome and the music plays a big part in that. Now if they could remake the N64 game I'd be in heaven.

    36. Jack Hepburn Raine on August 22, 2014

      @cycho did u read anything about this game before hand by the looks of it obviously not lol,
      the soundtrack link was emailed to us months ago, only things that are not done yet seem to be the comic and dev videos.

      Cycho on August 22, 2014

      Wow, this is so bad!! Played for 5 minutes and immediately uninstalled it again. "Take", "Look", "Use", etc. Are you kidding me? I'm glad technology advanced and we are not in the eighties anymore. This is ridiculous. Have fun!

    38. Darklord on August 22, 2014

      Hmm played for half an hour, now I'm stuck in a room filled with mirrors with no idea what to do next, the skull clue doesn't help me. I smashed a few mirrors but have nothing else to do, if I go back a goblin shoots me. I guess I've missed some object somewhere, or maybe there's just no way forward because I took a wrong turn?

    39. Ashley Mackay on August 22, 2014

      I too am wondering about the soundtrack. I'm on the $30 tier but there's only one song in my humblebundle reward page (9.9mb file)...

    40. Tomimt on August 22, 2014

      Couple of points:
      It would be nice to have the inventory on screen, as now it feels like there's always a couple of unnecessary clicks in order to use items.

      Also, for the future games, it would be sweet if you'd look into projection mapping, as that would help to make the graphics really pop out. The Book of Uwritten Tales 2 is using that and the scenes they've shown look amazing and have a nice feel of depth because of it.

      i am currently playing and i'm loving it ! but i'm stuck !! i got to the mirror room, broke a few mirrors but that's it. i got the gear and the hatch open but i can't seem to make it work, anyone has a faq somewhere ? i can't find anything on google =(

    42. Shannon Brice on August 22, 2014

      I did not receive my key and when I tried
      it states that no record of my email address being found. Even though it is the one connected to my kickstarter account.

    43. Jean-Marc Therrien on August 21, 2014

      Hi I've backed at the 60$ tier and I have 2 questions: 1 - I saw a song download of 9.9mb but is that the soundtrack we're supposed to get? 2 - At the moment I backed I chose the Android tablet version but now I have an Ipad, is it possible to switch to IOS? Thanks.

      hey there, just noticed that i had the $60 dollar shadowgate bundle instead of the $130 noted on my humblebundle page. Dunno if that's a mistake or not. (Also the walkthrough thing isn't on there)

    45. Jason on August 21, 2014

      Still no Humble Bundle key. Did everyone else get one?

    46. Tomimt on August 21, 2014

      So, I've given Shadowgate a small spin now and I am impressed. I love the visuals and the music. And the gameplay itself is delightfully brutal, with death hanging behind every step. The UI feels still a bit of a work, as the learning curve there is a bit high, but all in all, this feels like a quality product. Congratulations to Zojoi.

    47. Jason on August 21, 2014

      No Humble Bundle key here yet. Did they all go out?

    48. Frodo
      on August 21, 2014

      Wow, looks amazing. Thanks Zojoi team!

    49. Chris Herr on August 21, 2014

      Looks awesome. Thanks, guys!
