On the side note: did any PayPal backers receive the Kickstarter update e-mail? 

I think those of us who are not into social stuff would like to know about the delay...  ;)

No I didn't recieve any updates at my gmail for today.

Some recieved, some delayed and some never came. And yes I've cheked Spam box they are not there.

They are qualified as a promotional material. Might arrive later today though.

My only complain about the delay, is that we have that Message today and not yesterday.
I Was lined up to play today, and told my famely and freinds to NOT Call me today, because i'm playing DreamFall C.

so please RTG if u are more delayed give US information in good time.

Now RTG keep on working, so the game Will be as you want it, and we will all enjoy it.

My guess is that they always want to release things in promised time and they work on it untill last minute. When they fail then they write the update. See for how long time they wanted to release Book Two in February.

Yesterday Deponia was on sale at 80% (still is, I'm not ashamed to admit I spent 7 hours on it, can strongly recommend!), and today Cities:Skylines comes out, so all in all the timing is good. :)

I'm a little bit bummed by the delay as I took today and tomorrow off of work for unabated DFC play time, but really, I'm fine with it.  I would rather that RTG take all the time needed to get everything worked out because I know that they'll eventually deliver an amazing experience like they always do.  *Note to self: Take a whole week off for each Chapter release to allow for bug-fixing and more importantly, more play time!!!*  :)

 

Keep it up, RTG!  You guys are awesome!  :wub:

...Welp, nothing left to do but catch up on anime and Guild Wars 2!

:D  I'm "lucky" that I've amassed a very large chunk of PTO because of being such a workaholic.  I can't think of many other things better to use my PTO on!

And all I can say is that on Thursday, people better watch the heck out for me as I speed home from work!!!!

Hi Sha'nie, please call your famely and freinds and tell them that we are practicing english spelling and grammar.  :P

 

Hopefully one family and how many friends?

Well I wasn't going to be able to have any time with the game till Friday anyway so the delay dosn't affect me much.

 

But it is good to see a company deadicated to getting the best product posible out to gamers. There are some companies who would just press that green button and get the game out, its great that RTG isn't one of those. :)

Okay, I know everyone was just making fun of me for a (admittedly pretty hilarious) typo, but can we please refrain from teasing people about spelling and grammar? This is an international community where everyone is at different levels of fluency and I won't want anyone to feel ashamed of posting because their English isn't good enough.

It actually went live on steam 55 minutes before the time they'd announced.

Yeah it feels like nowadays most Triple A developers just send the game out with know issues and use the gamers as their testers. Then you're stuck playing a broken/buggy game for a week until a patch is released.

 

While it sucks that these bugs popped up I'm glad they'll take the time to fix them instead of rushing out a broken game.

A 24 hours delay would have really annoyed me (because I'm out all day on Thursday), but 48 hours is fine. So I still have four days time to play it before my vacation. I hope the developers can make a short vacation, too. After all it's not an MMO as The Secret World or Arnachy Online, where you have to release updates constantly.

The game must be really big if even after TWO WEEKS delay it still can't release in time.

 

Well, we only ever announced ONE date: March 10th. We had originally hoped to release by the end of February, but that was never certain — it's hard to lock down a release date way in advance.

 

The game is done, but when last-minute bugs are reported, we have to respond. With a game this big and with this many paths — MANY paths — there's much that can go wrong. And things did. And we responded to it.

 

We could maybe have released tonight, but then we wouldn't be confident about the version and would have spent the next week biting fingernails and probably dealing with customer support. Up until a few hours ago, we thought we'd be able to make it. But since we need to make (a) new version(s) we didn't want to delay until tomorrow; instead, to be sure, we gave ourselves an extra day.

 

It's for the best, I promise. And while we don't like waiting until last minute to delay, sometimes you have to do what you have to do.

Maybe YOU will be dead. In a hundred years, I'll still be responding to angry posts on Steam.

It's two days. We've only been waiting 9 ... damn ... years! I think somehow we can all survive another two days.:) Me I'm right in the middle of an audio theatre production which I really should get done. The delay is actually rather welcome.:)

 Waiting 8 years for sequel to Dreamfall was very painfull. Waiting for Book Two is much less - we can always play Book One :)
