So does anyone know yet at what time exactly the game will become available?

 

Steam update time is usually around 7 pm CET

Any update on when phyiscal goods will be shipping?

 

Update on that should be coming up in the next few days. Obsidian (and Paradox) decided to air freight the rewards to Europe to try and get the rewards to backers faster. it is more expensive, but we are trying to get people their goods as fast as possible.

Thanks!

 

And a huge LOL @Obsidian for their ****ed up communication. I mean thanks for sending the stuff by airmail, really, but why not communicating that properly? I would have been much more happy today if I already knew that I will get my stuff much sooner...

Will the ringtones also be formatted for text message alerts? I pledged a lot of money and since no one uses their phone to make calls, I will be very disappointed if I can't re-purpose the ringtones from Obsidian. Again, I pledged a lot of money and I want everyone to know, so, please indulge my demands immediately, thank you.

Well that's a shame, no midnight release then I guess. Thanks though!

But there are A TON of backers in Europe and elsewhere who don't read the forums. They don't follow the development closely. But they expect their rewards on release or shortly after, and rightfully so.

 

There was an entire Kickstarter update email to everyone about the delay in physical goods, with a poll about it how to handle this.  The sticking point is that outside of the US that delay will be longer, but even in the US we will wait a few weeks for physical delivery.

They've been a little overwhelmed lately as one might imagine. I think they've been erring on the side of making sure things get done in time instead of necessarily communicating it effectively to everyone.

There are free software tools to do that yourself if needed...

Re: the $35 Kickstarter option, will the soundtrack be available through the Steam download? Because I don't see it in my Products tab.

It should be added to your Products tab around actual release.

 

Thanks, based mod.

Yes, but the mail spoke about a few days. Later Brandon talked about a couple of weeks because of some dock strikes. That's a difference, at least for me. Anyway, since the now seem to send stuff by air the old status quo should be up again.

  • Once expanded click on the "Choose Platform" button to bring up a menu where you can select your preferred platform. We offer the choice between Steam and GOG. Once you have selected your platform you can press "Generate Key" to create a download key. Note that once you have generated a key for a platform it may not be changed in the future. Choose wisely. 

 

So I can't get both a Steam and a GOG key?  I gotta say, for something that presumably has a marginal cost to you of near-zero (but I spent quite a bit of money on), that's...disappointing.

 

That would mean you'd get two copies of the game tho...

 

...however, if what you meant is that you're getting multiple digital copies of the game with your reward tier, I'd think you can choose the platform for each one? I don't have that so can't check, but are they listed as separate entries in your backer portal?

 

I don't think (at least in this case) that being able to download the game from two different places is really equivalent to two different copies of the game.  I'm already getting a physical DRM-free copy of the game if it's a "but you can give a key away to someone else!" issue - and if I choose GOG, I'm already able to get a digital DRM-free copy.  I'd just like to be able to have the game on both my GOG and Steam "shelves" (and no, manually adding a non-Steam game to the client is not the same).

So has there been any word on when physical goods will be shipped (I'm in the continental US)?  My order has said "Shipping Soon" since last week.  Previous updates and that shipment poll implied we would be getting the stuff before or at launch.  Have people received anything?  Did I miss something?

 

Otherwise, thanks for the update.  The most important thing is I have the actual game preloaded and I'm super excited to play it.

I preloaded the game on steam. Still haven't received anything in the mail. On my Orders page it still says "Shipping Soon"... *fingers crossed*

Hey Silver! Long time no see. Seems like the ol' crowd is gathering before venturing forth in this last few hours until release... ;)

If you are in Montreal, Canada it is, in fact, the 25th currently.
