I've downloaded the video from the presskit and I've been watching this video local about 20 times now, is there something wrong with me ?


Oh no, of course not. Martin is a very attractive man.

I do think he could at least have worn a beanie for the occasion :-p That's his character's uniform!

Will us backers still get early access or is the 21st October date for everyone ?

 

I was curious about this myself. Going back to the Kickstarter page I saw this. "DIGITAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION + EARLY ACCESS •" And obviously anyone with that tier and higher would get it. It would be a shame if those of us who paid for these tiers did not receive the early access as promised.

Guys, I wonder why DFC is still not available for pre-ordering on Steam??? Isn't it a perfect time with all the coverage abour release date announcement? Or does it have smth to do with steam Green Light rules? I'm a little bit worried about sales.

I'm not sure what Steam's policy is for pre-orders...or how that works with Green Light and/or first titles from indie devs. 

 

People can still "pledge" for the game through RTG's site, which is like a pre-order. Though, obviously having a pre-order on Steam, GOG, etc. will draw more people. 

 

I'm not going to worry about it too much just yet. Ragnar's made it clear that they've got a strategy in place for the lead up to the release of the game.

They shouldn't do that now, because they would have to set the price that it's gonna cost on steam and then still having these pledges available on the site, means they have 2 different prizes, and if RTG likes to avoid attractting the attention of more trolls, they shouldn't do that :)

But how would an ordinary Steam user know that he can still pledge?

Steam actually recommends against doing preorders, and most indie titles don't do this, in order to have as much attention as possible on launch day.

 

That doesn't mean we won't do it — just clarifying how preorders work!

I have? Shit. I guess I need to put together a release strategy ASAP…

 

We can't actually run pledging and preorders concurrently. To launch the latter, we must shut down the former. And we're making more money from a pledge than we would from a preorder. So there's that.

Thank you for explanation, Ragnar!

Anyways, after watching this update video I was sooo happy with all the changes you made. New outfits and haistyle for Zoe! And don't get me started on that delicous booty of Zoe. Game looks so beautiful, I still can't believe first ep. will be out so soon. I think I need to replay first 2 games ASAP.

If you intend to send out backer retrieval keys for GOG/Steam at least 24 hours before release, but no preorders are open at that time, can these keys actually still be generated and retrieved this early?

And are either GOG or Humble really capable to enable a 48 hour earlier access specifically for backers for future episodes (e.g. 2-4)?

I should have. I'm sorry!

But you guys seem to think we have plans and stuff, so you can only blame yourself, really.... :P

Maybe you should tell Ragnar to be less "We can't tell you that yet...blah blah blah, need to pick the right release date, given a lot of thought about when to announce it... yadda yadda... our PR partners... Soon™." 

 

It makes it seem like you have a plan. Clearly just a clever ruse. :P Jerks.
