Hey RTG!

 

I'd like some.. information about a little perdicament I have stumbled across.

 

I have helped Kickstart a game called "Son of Nor" and their Beta access goes first through the Humblebundle site.

 

I got instructions of how to get the game and when I got email confirmation and got the link to activate on Steam but there was also (Have not clicked on it yet) Dreamfall Chapters (Tier 500+) it says.. I have not done anything about that link but supposedly it is for a CDkey.

 

I do not know how to really proceed with this but I thought to try to contact RTG first to see how we are to resolve this. I mean I don't want to accidentally pre-download the demo or getting a key in advance and be branded a hack or something or whatever you have on the humblebundle site.

 

So suggestions would be nice.

 

Thanks.

Hope I got this right:

 

You mean that you got an email link from HumbleBundle to activate "Son of Nor", and as well it has Dreamfall: Chapters listed in it?

If this is the case, that's probably just how HumbleBundle does these things.

 

Every HumbleBundle user has their own "Claim" page, listing all products that you've purchased that is distributed through their service. So what I'm guessing is that when they send out a game key or whatnot through email, they also list all your other purchases, as it is part of your total list of products.

 

Not sure I understood the issue mentioned correctly, but hope my answer was within the ballpark. If not, feel free to elaborate and I'll do my best to give you a good answer.

You can also email me at morten@redthreadgames.com if you feel that a screenshot or something would help describe the issue in a better way. :)

It sounds like the key page humble bundle use to tie a backer to the humble account. I can pretty much guarantee you that RTG haven't started releasing game keys - to the best of my knowledge DFC isn't going to have one :) That said, you're right to wait until you hear back from the team before continuing

@ DiskJunky

Thanks :P

Seems like we had the same understanding of what might be the issue, or rather; not an issue after all, so that's good.

 

@Fritjof - The Shifter

As DiskJunky  said, we haven't released any game keys, so you're not going to "break" anything if that's what you're worried about :)

 

That said, you might notice that there is a license key on your HumbleBundle "Claim"-page for Dreamfall: Chapters. This is a license key for activating your Backer Badge on the forum.

We'll be releasing an official announcement on this too either today, tomorrow or friday. :)

Yep it's for the pretty new badges.  See

(p.s. I had to search around for where to enter the key but found it right in front of my eyes when I went to my profile)

Hmmm, then it would seem that I have the incorrect badge :( I'm at 'Benefactor of Marcuria'

Check your Humble library and scroll down to the 'Other Purchases' section. If Dreamfall doesn't show up, use the key resender (http://support.humbl...le-key-resender).

Of course patience would also work. :)

I'm a doppleganger.  But they only gave badges up to draickin, then the next is guardian of the balance which was the $10k one.

 

 

Edreamer Jamil , think of it as the first puzzle in Dreamfall Chapters. :D  Put together the pieces we've hinted at here. :sotb:

Ahhh no - puzzles !!!    /panicquit

 

Profile page was actually first place I'd checked - but you were spot on - it took (me) a bit of adventure game style searching to find it, must have looked right past it a couple of times...

I'm tempted to say "how's that different from any other day?" but that'd be mean ;)

 

Log into humble bundle, there's a like there to generate a code. Copy the code onto the clipboard and then go to this form and edit your profile. There is a link there for "license" I think and paste the code in there and hit Save. You should have it then

The humle bundle part was easy, find where to enter the code here on the forum was not... Time to get glasses I guess B)

Yeah, that's why we're giving out an official announcement with some how-to's etc., so that everyone's informed ;)

I see that some of you have figured it out already, though. You hacky hackers, you...  :crow:

 

Congrats on finally getting your badges, guys! :D

If it is indicative of the puzzles in the game, then that's not too bad. :D

Well, it's a forum of gamers (and a ton of puzzle gamers at that). What were you expecting? :P Between this thread and the other thread where you mentioned that the functionality for implementing badges was in place, I think most of us saw your posts and said "Challenge Accepted."
