First up, a message from Tim!

Hello, Backers of Adventure!

 

I love you!

 

Sorry, I got a little emotional there. Because this, at long last, is the FINAL UPDATE for this thing we have called the Double Fine Adventure. At least, that's what they tell me. I'm not so sure. You know, there's always that "oops!" update, where we left our phone at your house and need to come back. And then in a few months, we find your earrings in our couch. And then come the drunken, tearful updates in the middle of the night where we talk about how much we miss you. Oh man, let's not let this get weird! Let's be brave!

It's not like we have to stop talking or something. It's just the "final" update because we're (finally) delivering our FINAL BACKER REWARD! You may have received an email from Fangamer asking again if you are absolutely sure your shipping address is correct. And you were all, "Yeah, right. I've heard this before!" The difference is this time is... well, look!

If you are one of our generous $100 backers, The Special Edition box of Broken Age is on its way to you in all it's big, cardboard glory. And I mean RIGHT NOW.

 

You are hopefully as excited as we are, but also you might reasonably be asking, "What took so long?" I hope when you check out the Blu-ray you'll understand. 2 Player Production has created something really special for us all. Starting with the amazing, living menus, you can see the love that went into this thing. Then as you dig down through the multiple tracks of commentary for every episode, the twenty hours of bonus material, and all the other new goodies on this thing you'll start to realize, "Whoa. I'm about to spend a lot of quality time with this thing."

 

 

 

 

If you do watch it again--which I recommend, because each episode feels like it has a new meaning now--you will hopefully notice how much nicer every frame looks. 2PP color corrected every frame. Now, I don't know what that means, but when they turn it off, I look like I have the flu in every shot. So I'm glad it's there.

 

Oh, and there's a game on there too. About a girl and a boy and some six-sided robots. If you haven't played it, now's a great time! And when you're not playing or watching or kissing it, you can even enjoy putting it on your shelf. This box was designed (by the awesome Cory Schmitz) to look right at home alongside the big boxes LucasArts used to make in the 90s. Retro cardboard shelf party!

 

Okay, so that's it for the rewards. Thank you for your patience, even those of you who were not patient. Now what? For some of us, the adventure is going to continue with Psychonauts 2. The crew is filming all our meetings and gathering footage for either another documentary, or just some sort of blackmail scheme. But whether you're part of that adventure or not, we will always be bound together by what happened on the Double Fine Adventure. You made it possible, you helped shaped its course, and you stood by us when times were tough. So I hope we'll still be seeing a lot of each other--on the forums, at PAX or Day of the Devs. So, see you around!

 

And one more time: THANKS FOR BACKING!

 

:')

Details on shipments

Fangamer is working on shipping the boxes as we speak, and while general sales of the blu-ray set open today, backer boxes are being prioritized. It’s difficult to estimate arrival time for international shipping, but domestic orders should be arriving before the December holidays.

Fangamer recently sent out surveys to everyone asking for preferences of Blu Rays and DVDs and for confirmation of addresses. If you did not see this, if you want to change your answers, or if you have any questions or problems with at all, please email orders@fangamer.com

Or send me a message! (Spaff)

Thank you all so much!

flesk noticed that if you purchase the deluxe edition upgrade on Steam, the link it provides in your activity page just goes to the content of Deluxe Edition upgrade, with no obvious link to purchase it:

http://store.steampowered.com/sub/130890/

Not sure if there's any way to fix this, I just thought you'd like to know.

Yay! :) Looking forward to getting my hands on this (though with the DVD instead of the BR).

Also, what buckysrevenge wrote. I saw that before I read this update, so I had no idea what it was or how to get it.

Hi, apparently this was sent out whilst I was on holiday, so when I got back I had the delivery failed note and by that point it had been over a week, so the package was sent back to where it came from, who do I get in contact with to resolve this issue?

I say contact  orders@fangamer.com  and include your order number and address and other stuff you may have got via email. But you might not get a response until the new year due to closeness of holiday time.

There is a link in the typo. I don't know who doubelfine.com is, but it's not you ;) Also.. I'm not sure where to look for my code. I backed the project for $30 on Kickstarter, does that count?

I've fixed that typo in Spaff's post (apologies for the long delay in sorting that out!).

On your Humble download page for Broken Age, you should see the following option to redeem a VHX key (if you've already clicked it, it'll display the key rather than the text "Click here for your VHX key):
