    Yup. Backers will get an email about it soon.

    Think we can choose between Gog or Steam for our version. As for the reviews, meh. Rare I agree with reviewers out there anyway.

    Ok cheers, I'm glad its Steam play, they were never able to tell me on the official forums, I want to play it on a Macbook, hopefully it'll cloud save so I can move to the PC when I fancy, not holding my breath on that one though.

    Bit peeved thats its cheaper on GOG with the discount than what I gave them in Kickstarter, still, I suppose it helped to make the game.

    Also, all this 'It was supposed to be two games so we cut it into two chapters' smells a bit fishy to me, I hear the first half is only 8 hours long.

    8 hours is pretty lengthy for an adventure game. If I remember correctly, your paying for both parts on gog/steam.

    Suppose it all depends on how long the cut scenes are, you are indeed paying for both parts but I just feel they ran out of time and churned out the first half, I dont want to come back months down the line to complete the story!

    Still, I'll not judge it til I've played it, roll on 5pm!

    I find it weird to say an adventure game is about 8 hours. Is that assuming you know what your doing and all the puzzles? If so, that's quite a long game still. The game is even longer if you don't know. It's very subjective...

    Just read, the games going to run in full HD with 1920x1080 Pixels too. This is going to look so sweet :)

    Things needed for a Broken Sword game:

    * It has to look glorious, in a stylised way
    * It has to have some fantastic wanky mythical spook/cult story that doesnt' make much sense
    * It has to have George Stobbart being sarcy and knowing and a bit of a fool
    * Nico has to be fit
    * The puzzles have to be reasonably hard, but never absurd
    * It has to have a few, but not too many, comedy characters

    If this matches most or all of those, sold.

    Huh? The stories do make sense. Don't think I've struggled on any of them :/

    Essential: George has to be able to show everyone everything in his inventory with childlike enthusiasm

    Didn't realise this was already out! Colour me intrigued!
  • Deleted user 4 December 2013 17:25:38
    At a guess, the systems sending them out. It's just got a lot of people to get through...

    It could be because of steam. If there waiting for them, it will be another at 6 now.

    It's a joke that its up for sale yet people who prepaid to have the bloody game made are sat waiting! They could have generated GOG codes at least ages ago!

    Pffft!

    This would be because of steam not revolution software. Gog are far more flexible then Steam.

    Alright, sense is the wrong word. 'Bollocks' is another. It's all historico-fantasy schtick, and is great for it.

    Are they still doing a new iOS one? Were they ever doing a new iOS one?

    Probably, because we get given the choice between the two. If steam are saying they can't send the code out yet, there waiting around too. Only another 20 mins.
  • Deleted user 4 December 2013 17:40:56
    @superdelphinus Yes. Android, IOS, Vita, PC, Mac and Linux if I remember correctly. PC the only one out right now though.

    The forums keep grinding to a halt so I assume something is happening at least, theres only 47 people online so it certainly isnt a mass coming together....
