Still no GOG codes. I suspect what will have to happen is that I'll have to wait until Cyan thinks they've sent out all the codes and then alert them to the fact that they haven't.
I think that if you had to "prod" blackbox to send you an email about their "survey" by going to https://backers.blackbox.cool/myst-25th-anniversary-collection
before receiving the survey email from them, that you will never receive the GOG codes without special help from Cyan -- and that Cyan won't help until they think all codes are already sent out.
But in other news, 3 years and 8 months late, I finally received the "Collector's" DVD of Dreamfall Chapters today. However it wasn't what was described during the Kickstarter.
Originally it was described like this on ***the Kickstarter page***
BOXED COLLECTOR'S EDITION • Get a boxed DVD copy for your collection! • Includes a beautifully designed COLLECTOR'S EDITION BOX and printed instruction manual!
And then from ***this update webpage***
The Collector's Edition ($110) comes in a beautiful slipcase containing a DVD keep case with an instruction manual. The slipcase and keep case feature a unique and beautiful cover designed by art director Christer Sveen.
What I received was not a box, or even a sleeve over a DVD case.
It is a plastic DVD holder glued to folded over cardboard, about half the thickness of a normal DVD case, or 1/4 the thickness of one of the small game boxes they started using in the early 2000's. It looks like the one on the following Kickstarter webpagehttps://www.kickstarter.com/projects/redthread/dreamfall-chapters-the-longest-journey/posts/2063474
though maybe smaller than you'd expect -- the height and width of a DVD case or small game box, but much thinner.
There is no printed instruction manual included.
This is what you get for donating "$110 or more" to Dreamfall Chapters. I'm lucky it wasn't bent or accordionized the way most cardboard things arrive when they are shipped in a thin, flattened bubble envelope like this one was. I'm also lucky I didn't donate any more than I did.
But after all this time, I'm surprised to receive anything at all from them.
