Also, I hope they're planning to release the final soundtrack with all the new songs soon. The one on GOG says it's The Final Cut soundtrack, but it says it has 48 tracks, which is how many the soundtrack Simon Poole's had on his website for a year has. So, whatever.

I am wondering, the 26/07 update I am seeing on my Humble Bundle account is version 5.1.1 ... and I doubt that is the Final Cut edition.

Can anyone tell me what the Final Cut version is, please ?

5.1.1 is a old version.  Like a year old.  Did they just stop updating the Humble version?

Current version is 5.7.1

 

 

edit: can you double check that version?  My humble account says that it was just updated this week.  That should be the Final Cut version.

Updated on 26th. I went there on 26th I guess just before they made the change so I was able to direct download the old version. The torrent link to it was even invalid! But now it's the new one and there is one seeder for that torrent.

 

ETA: wrong! See below.

Just checked my info. Assumptions will be the death of us! I assumed the updated file info and re-appearance of a lone seeder on the Torrent link meant that the files had been updated. WRONG!

 

The files you get from Humble are still version 5.1.1. Lookie here:

 

Attached File  dfc old.png   88.52KB   8 downloads

 

Downloaded as of 30 minutes ago. Colour me completely unsurprised. RTG seal of quality!

Thank you magic88889 and Happy Tree for yours answers.

 

On "Final Cut" release date (21/07) Humble Bundle version was still 4.1.1.

Version 5.1.1 was really an update on 26/07...but one year old, what a shame. :(

Do we have a date for the physical goods yet? I'm waiting for my Wonkers the Wattila USB drive.

No, that would require RTG to actually communicate with us. :rolleyes:  Afaik all we know is we'll get to know more in August. We'll see, I guess..

That's probably humble's fault. I purchased a few games from humble a number of years ago and the devs for that game were much more communicative. They would say when they sent updates out and to who and me as a humble user was always disappointed with how terrible they were with posting the new files. You might want to bug them about it.

Just read update #108... and... woah. Just. Woah.

 

*maybe by the time it's posted here I'll be able to be more articulate... the email just left me... pretty speechless for a variety of reasons.

Ok so they're simply not going to acknowledge that they're not doing some stretch goals. Just blithely carry on as if all is fine! It's one way of doing things, I guess.

The boxes are coming! Hooray!


I was dreaming. Perhaps it may have been but a long forgotten memory. Things remembered when one is asleep. Things forgotten when one is awake. Where the deepest layers of memories become the outmost layers of one's dreams. Which are reality? Which are illusions? Or perhaps they are, at the same time, both truth and fiction. A vast nebulous with no boundaries. An emptiness equivalent to my own existence. I dreamt such a dream. A long, never-ending, dream. - Fei Fong Wong

I'm glad things are progressing, but I still have some questions after reading it...

 

1) Some of the digital rewards came at lower pledge tiers. Are they not happening or are they just going to be released when we get to shipping their physical counterparts?

 

2) Will the Birthrights and town crier ever be added to the console versions?

 

3) Are we ever going to get even the simplest explanation/acknowledgement as to why the stretch goals didn't make it?

1)  That is what all the other kickstarters I've been a part of have done.  With the digital release happening either when they start shipping or shortly after they finished shipping. 

Can't say for certain since they're doing this a bit piecemeal.  Also not sure because some of those rewards were supposed to be released a long time ago. 

 

2) No idea.  I would think they would at some point, just so everything is running the same version.  Easier to support that way.

 

3)  One kickstarter I was a part of did a kind of post-motem on the whole thing.  Basically they went through the whole process and explained some of their thoughts on why they did things one way and not another.  It wasn't an apology or anything, just giving the backers some insight into the development process and what went into it.  It obviously didn't work for everyone, but for me, it was an acknowledgement that things happened but that they had good reasons for happening that way.  I think that would work well here.

They need to do something.  This silence is very disturbing.
