Here's the place to talk about the features you would like to see in a sequel to KotC.

Thanks for the updates, all looking good (needless to say, I am also very much looking forward to backing and playing KotC2 :) ).

You mentioned that one of the reasons for releasing KotC1 on Steam is to attract new players who could potentially become backers of KotC2. How much time are you planning to allow for that to happen before launching the campaign? I'm asking not out of impatience but out of curiosity regarding your strategy.

Hello SilentLion, thank you for your post.

Concerning the KS campaign launch date: The first thing for me is to finish the website update and then finish building the KS page. Once that's done, I'll set a KS launch date maybe three weeks ahead; I will also check and take into account the best days to start and end a campaign. That way, there will be enough time to spread the word about the launch date.

Concerning the Steam release: I would greatly appreciate it if everyone could please help spread the word about the 23 August Steam release on forums, news websites and social-networking sites! Let's give KotC 1 a good start on Steam! This is the last week and every little bit helps. It will help KotC 2 as well.

Thank you all! Best regards :-)

Will existing owners get a free Steam key? That way I could leave you a positive review on Steam.

Quick update just to say that I've been focusing on KS preparation in the past week. That means I've been creating artwork, text, GIFs and thinking and writing about the stretch goals and reward tiers. I'm planning to do some more graphical work and talk some more with the artist, then I should be able to upload the KS page content soon. I'll post here when that's done.

Pod, regarding Steam keys, I think we've already covered the subject extensively there http://www.heroicfantasygames.com/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=791 and there https://steamcommunity.com/app/1083760/discussions/0/1639794651172667851/, hopefully I don't need to repeat the same stuff ad nauseam in this thread also. :|

Thank you all for reading, best regards!

So is the game still "finished" in the sense that we'll get it immediately after the Kickstarter ends, or are you going to go back and make changes to it to allow the sprites? I'm so ready to play this game. I hope it's as fun as the first one.

Hello Dickie,

You'll get it immediately after the KS ends, and it will be improved once the sprites are ready.

I did put the KS page content online: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1848628223/947609585?ref=8amqiu&token=df2b2dd2

I will update the page when I get new content from the artist, or when I need to do some changes.

Sadly, I don't think I can make it this year. Probably going to be late January.

Reasons:
- I'm feeling really bad now because of terrible gum pain (right now I'm only surviving by swishing salt water... all of the time it seems)
- I have to take steps to avoid damaging fiscal consequences
- On top of that, I have to sort out a number of real-life issues.

Maybe I'll use some of the extra time to create the Mac version, prepare the text of KS updates, etc.

Sad to hear about you problems and the delay to 2020. But why did you update the KS page with estimated delivery to dec 2019? should probably change that to avoid giving people false hopes...

Good luck and feel well!

It might be nice to offer a $10 USD tier for KoTC1, and a $30 tier that's the same as $20 tier but you get KoTC1 as well. People may buy KOTC again for steam if its bundled with KoTC2.

Thank you guys! I'm fine now. Correct, I have to change the estimated delivery dates. As for a reward tier specifically for KotC 1, I have to think about it some more, but maybe I can have a system of add-ons. So maybe you can pledge at any reward level, and by adding USD 10 or so, you'd get a KotC 1 Steam key. Add-ons work as explained in this page: https://support.peakdesign.com/hc/en-us/articles/211834203-How-to-Add-on-Items-to-your-Reward-Kickstarter-Pledge

Today I posted this on the KS page:

Hello all, here's a quick update: in the past couple of weeks I created the Mac OS version, so I'll be able to deliver both the Windows and Mac versions immediately after the end of the KS.

Hopefully, I can launch the KS in late January or early February. I know it's been delayed too many times and I sincerely apologise for that. Best regards & thank you for your interest everyone! :-)
