Book III Release Date

Post by BasiliskWrangler » December 3rd, 2013, 7:55 pm

Sorry, I've been so busy dealing with emails and such so I didn't post this here initially, but...

February 14, 2014

Press release can be viewed in the press release section. Beta testing will begin in early January, so watch for that announcement probably after Jan 1.

I love you, bro.

I was more thinking of her getting me a present...
And once I get it, I show her how much she was right by playing non stop for days :mrgreen:

Then when you finish the game, you notice that she left a few days ago. :)

Nahh, I'd realize it sooner, around food time or bed time (sometimes I'm glad she doesn't read nor speak English very well).

US $19.95 on day 1.

The Steam version will go put online sometime after the first week, and it will be the same price, however Steam always run new games at an introductory price of 10%-25% off for the first 7 days or so.

My mental process:
Oh, I can wait a week or two for 25% off! Wait, did I just say that? Of course I can't! Getting it on the first day it's available from BG.

Will there be a change after day 1?
When I buy the game via Steam, then I cannot play the game without Steam, right? What I mean is: what would happen if Steam goes bankrupt? Then I would not be able to play the game anymore or would I? I know that this most probably will not happen, but who knows... I prefer to have a physical copy of a game and the possibility to play it without any other software bound to it... So the 25% off is more like a catch to me because the game is attached to Steam.

Maybe I am all wrong, but this is a thing I am a little worried about when buying from Steam... :?

I like Steam as a service. It works great. But I prefer getting my games directly from the developer when it's possible.

Hmmm - wait a week and get it cheaper...

No, I want it now!

To heck with delayed gratification, U.S. $20 comes out something under €15, so it can be my Valentine's Day present to myself (nobody else to buy me one, sob sob) :mrgreen:

Season's greetings to all!

The base price for the first year will be $19.95, but there will be regular sales. We'll run a summer sale along with Steam and GOG, as well as a holiday sale.

After the first year, the price of the game will probably settle at $14.95. Book 2 will be $9.95 and Book 1 will be $5.95.

Not really BasiliskWrangler's fault, but if you were to buy the game from Steam, and somehow Steam were to go bankrupt, you would probably not be able to play the game any more. Steam however, owned by Valve, won't go bankrupt until Half-Life 3 comes out, and when it does, people will buy it through steam, making Steam no longer bankrupt.
Really, Valve going Bankrupt is not something you have to worry about for several decades.

On the other hand, if you buy it from Basilisk Games, you are ensured that, even if something awful happens to Basilisk Games, or Steam, you will be able to play your game.

Yeah, I agree. If I can't get it on disk then I won't get it at all.
