Is there in-game content in Dreamfall Chapters that is exclusive to Kickstarter backers?

Are you asking if there actually is, or if according to the terms of the Kickstarter, there should be?

There were some alternative outfits for Zoe that apparently had already been done, but for the life of us nobody can figure out why we're still not allowed to see them years later. I would humbly suggest it's because they haven't been done at all.

They said this July that the outfits would be ready with the Final Cut. Three months later, and we still don't have them. It's so ridiculous.

 

But that was the only backer-exclusive content that was ever promised.

How would this have been implemented? In DLC? In the physical release?

According to the "Project Update #107" backer email: "TFC includes the final batch of in-game Kickstarter rewards, including outfit changes and Birthright characters."

As far as I know there's no backer exclusive content in the game itself at present, or if there is the backers haven't been told how to access it.

Yeah, I haven't gone back and played TFC yet, but my understanding was outfits and whatever were added, but they're there for everyone. They're not a KS exclusive, though they were pitched that way during the Kickstarter if I remember correctly.

Wait... I didn't see any option for outfits in the TFC. I thought that was what the whole new system to 'redeem keys' was for. Except they never gave us any keys to us. Ever.

If they did add them, they did a bloody good job of making sure you can't use any of them.

Yeah, like I said. Haven't played it so I have no idea if it's in there or how to access it. 

 

I was more saying that they said they were adding that to The Final Cut and The Final Cut went out to everyone. So... ...If they were added, they wouldn't be exclusive to anyone.

Well, it seemed like the plan to give us the keys for that. But then total silence again... I have not found any way of enabling them otherwise. Or any hint of where they might be.

I haven't played the Final Cut all the way through yet, but I thought the plan was that Zoe would be able to change outfits by clicking on the wardrobe in her apartment.  Guess that isn't actually the case?

The ‘redeem keys’ option has been there for a while now - Book 2? 3? Can’t remember now. And you should have a key in your Humble Account. However, nothing seems to happen if you do put it in. At the time we suspected it might have been a possible way to enable an earlier release of the game for backers, but that never happened, so it might just have been an idea that was never fully implemented.

I remember the redeem key page being there in the options menu since the initial release of Book One three years ago. I assumed that it would be for the backer exclusive outfit changes. I assumed they were going to send us the keys when they said that the outfits would be in the Final Cut. But then, unsurprisingly, they went dead silent again. How long would it have taken to send the keys to everyone's Humble account, or email them to us, on July 21? Five minutes?

Really the redeem page has been there for that long? I played each book as it came out, but I guess I must've forgotten about it. Still sucks either way though. I am more annoyed with stuff like the tome of the balance and such than the in-game outfits though.

Does anyone know what the "Birthright characters" content mentioned in Kickstarter update #107 is supposed to be?

People at a certain KS level got to work with RTG to develop an NPC that would appear in the game. They weren't there in the initial release and were added later in The Final Cut.

There's one point where we got a key in HB page which we could add ingame, but I don't think it never really did something. I could add it 3 times and then it says the times I could add it were up :)
