Launch Update! DRM-free AND Steam and other bits...
Hey everyone, let's get to it, shall we?
DRM-Free AND Steam
Well, tomorrow's the day, eh? First, in case you missed the update to the update a week or so ago, when we launch, you will now be able to download both the DRM-free Windows and Mac version and a copy of the game on Steam no matter what level you pledged at. The digital art book will also be available (Note that is has many of the game rooms in it so it may contain spoilers!)
The game, keys and digital rewards are all hosted by our friends at Humble. If you have lost (or not received) a personal Humble key, you can use this handy link to retrieve it. If that doesn't work, send us an email at email@example.com.
We've always strived to make sure that we provided the best physical rewards and finish them on time. The soft and hardcover books came in last week and, with the exception of the DVD for the box, everything is ready to go. So, as soon as the duplication process is done, all rewards will be going out. This includes some rewards our international backers have not received yet (we didn't want to ship 3 times internationally.)
Now, we have asked a number of times that if you are set to receive physical rewards AND you have moved since we launched the Kickstarter campaign, PLEASE send us a change of address to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we don't hear from you, we will ship to the address we have on record and because we have a limited amount of goods, will not be able to ship twice if we hear from you later.
Last but not least
We know we've said it before but we really are thankful for every person that pledged or supported us. We know you have been patient as we ran late on the project and we very much appreciate that as well. This has been a fun (and exhausting) 2 years and as we get ready to finalize the tablet versions, we're just as excited about Shadowgate as ever. As you know, we're a pretty small shop with pretty big expectations. We've tried to go above and beyond your expectations as well, continually adding things to the game to make it better and better. We hope you enjoy Shadowgate and will tell your friends about it so that we can continue to make these unique types of adventure games. Note that we will update the Steam client with patches (if needed) and perhaps new content/features. We will also work with Humble to update the DRM-free versions.
Alright, that's it for now. We'll send an update next month and be keeping an eye on how many times you've shaken hands with the Grim Reaper!
