I wasn't a backer or anything, but I do think that since this project was kickstarted by their customers they do owe you guys transparency and proper updates. A lack of communication is something I've noticed for a long time and if I were someone who paid out a large amount of money I might be pretty unhappy about that. I mean, it has been years and as far as I know you guys still don't know what's going to happen with the items you've paid them to make.

RTG said long time ago that Wii U version won't happen. Also there won't be Switch port.

I'm not sure they ever did. They just went silent about the whole thing. But I wasn't being serious with the comment in the first place :D

I am looking forward to replaying and finding the bits and pieces that are new - it's certainly been the longest wait! I have to say though, from the snippets in the most recent trailer, I'm not sure I'm feeling the new models for Hannah and Abby. They're a bit... shiny?

 

Does anyone know whether the final cut will be a patch like other updates have been? My steam uninstalled my game for some reason and it will take me hours to download it (crappy Australian internet), so I'm wondering if I should wait for the final cut to be released, or just go ahead and start re-downloading.

And a bit bellow in that page, in the `More like this` section there is the suggestion for: "Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator". :D

Has anyone played it yet? Are the new outfits in or do we need to wait until they send out activation keys for them or something? What's new that wasn't in the console version?

Have you an idea about the release of final version of dreamfall chapters after director's cut? No announce about it.
I hope that will release soon because I want the promised french voice.

Started playing a bit.  got through most of Book 1.  So far seems like it's mostly the same as the revamped Book 1 they did a while back.  I think there were some things added to some of the conversations here and there.  Nothing big.  Just a few added details here and there, maybe edited for flow. 

Visually, the only really noticeable difference is the lighting.  It looks quite different from what I remember.  Also the hair seems shinier, maybe?  Kian's skin texture looked a bit different, maybe. 

 

Whatever the changes they are small.  But then they had already gone through Book 1 pretty thoroughly before.  There might be bigger changes in later chapters.

 

 

Some cool things: Deleted scenes!  It includes two, one of which appears to be the original Book 1!  Didn't play through it yet, but it looks like the original Storytime sequence at least.

Save slot system!  We can now have multiple saves going at the same time!

Concept art!  Looks like art from the entire game.  Love the last one of Saga.

 

 

@willow: this is supposed to be the final version.  There is not another announced version after this.  According to the changelog, it does contain updated French subtitles, but I have no information about the voices.

If it's the final version, it's not normal because in the FAQ, french voice were promised.

(2) Stretch goal & reward delivery [updated March 30th, 2016]
 
Stretch Goals:

  • "The Spoken World" DELIVERED/PENDING — Language versions: The French and Polish voices version will likely be added only after all five episodes have released in the English language (no official comment – but French subtitles seem to be available); the German voices are delivered faster following an agreement with EuroVideo. Voice actors: From the original TLJ/DF cast, Sarah Hamilton (April), Roger Raines (Crow), André Sogliuzzo (Blind Bob) and Ralph Byers (Brian Westhouse/Roper Klacks) return.

Is it possible that this promise was a lie? It would be very disappointed.

Like I said, I don't have any info on French voices.  RTG may plan that for a future update, but I don't know.

But honestly, I'm not optimistic about it.  Fact is, there are several things that still appear to be missing.  Some that I was particularly looking forward to.  Things that have received no mention from RTG,  just like the French voices.  I was hopeful that they would be included, but since they're not there, I don't think they ever will be.

 

It's unfortunate, but Kickstarter is not the same as ordering a finished product off the shelf in a store.  You are funding an unfinished product.  Often a product that is at that time just an idea.  And during any development process, things change.  That's true with any development process, but it is especially true with an artistic endeavor.  And to be fair, they did manage to do 90% of that particular stretch goal.  The did do subtitles, and voices in the German case.  Plus they managed to find and get much of the original TLJ cast to come back.  The only thing they missed was the French voices.  There are entire stretch goals that didn't get met at all, or are impossible to tell if they were met at all.

Like I said, things change, and they obviously weren't able to do everything they wanted to do.  It happens. 

 

That said, that doesn't excuse RTG's complete silence on these things.  I share your frustration on that point.

So there are no French voices, Loremaster or gallery (expected even though they've pretended those were never a thing for two years), and we can't get the extra outfits because there are no activation keys yet...which you'd think they would have sent out upon releasing the Final Cut. And they haven't sent out an update or even a single tweet or anything. What a mess.

This pretty much sums it up.

No. Console versions are not included in the Kickstarter.

I was wondering if that was new, or if I just wasn't paying attention before.  Pretty cool!  Curious to find more.

That's almost certainly up to the humble store and they can be really bad. I purchased xenonauts off them and I was always waiting for patches even though the devs told me that they've already sent them the new files. Actually I purchased two games from them and had the same problems with both so I kinda stopped shopping there.

 

One thing I do know for sure is that gog has the soundtrack available for me to download so I find it likely that humble has the files already but they're just slow at posting them for their customers. Again.

That all sounds like the stuff introduced in the console versions, the Gallery and the deleted scenes were in the PS4 game

My Humble Bundle account has an early access key, this is the key apparently given for access to things like the outfits?

 

Dreamfall Chapters Early Unlock

 

xxx-xxx-xxx

 

This is your redeem key for Early Access to content in Dreamfall Chapters. Use this key in the title screen under Settings -> Redeem key to unlock Early Access content.

 

Have anyone tried activating this early access key in the 'final cut'? Or are the outfits (and hairstyles?) available to everyone?

 

I did try this way back when the redeem page appeared, but nothing much happened, for obvious reasons.
