I hope final release will not be late. I will not play it tomorrow, so it does not hurt me,but it will be bad for company :(

 

Yes, I think it's too late to delay the release. Tomorrow you can buy it in stores (at least in Germany, but I think in other countries as well), so there should be a game to play. I don't care if I can play it tomorrow or on Sunday, I am only worried about the release dates of the next books. Amazon.de says there will be one every 10-12 weeks. I hope that's true. Had some bad experiences with The Wolf Among Us.

Some people (in GoG/Steam) are getting a bit "restless" about the promised (for today) Journey's Birth stories (included in the Special Editions).  :( 

I know it's not important at all compared to finishing the game in time (and hopefully those people are few) but it's still unecessary "bad publicity".

Ehh...There's always going to be those people. On the whole, I feel like people have been pretty good. Hopefully the rest will hakuna their tatas once the game drops.

Yeah. I mean, don't get me wrong. If you make a promise you should keep it, but at the same time things do happen and the day isn't over yet.

I just hope they could spare someone (a non-programmer maybe) for a few minutes to "push" the e-book update on the distribution platforms. But I've no idea how easy (and time-consuming) that would be and probably nobody can spare a second right now, they're all coding and (play)testing.

I'd imagine that it's more problematic to push partial updates rather than the one package they've prepared for. A little patience it all it takes on our side - however irksome it may be right now :)

Yeah, exactly. I think that while it sucks and I get that people are restless... Partial updates sounds like it could get sticky. I don't know exactly how all that works, but it just seems to make more sense to do as much stuff per "batch" I guess, as they can.

The German retail release (retail in name only) will not work without substantial Steam auto-updates, which naturally only become available once RTG uploads the full game to Valve's servers. So absolutely nothing won for the few German people who buy the game via Amazon or brick and mortar stores... :(

 

TWaU was supposed to be released in four to five months total and in fact did release within eight months. Total playing time was seven to eight hours. Chapters is planned to conclude within 10 or 11 months or so, easily rendering 10+ hours of gameplay in total. I expect delays to happen, but I also expect the individual episodes to have far more of an impact concerning the story.

Why? The game is not fully released until tomorrow evening (European time). There's still plenty of time for some backers to get it early.

Ok, just finished Dreamfall....now there is nothing standing between me and Chapters  :)

But it´s strange how still patient I am.... I guess it´s just DC-pre-shock  :D or maybe I´m blessed by the Balance :rolleyes:  :sotb:

whatever.... just one day to my dream come true :)

Early access you should not seek if you wish to embark for the longest journey

It all comes down to principles with me :) I paid for 72 hour early access and that promise wasnt fulfilled. That hurts a bit, im not going to sugarcoat it. I wish the compensation will be awesome :)
