Hi Din! You mentioned you aren't sure how things will work on itch.io, is there another sales platform where you can confirm there will be credits? Your website recommends GameJolt, but they only have the old Chapter 1 build. I see that Gumroad has a $10 knights version that says chapter 2, and a $25 version that says chapter 3, but their descriptions don't have a lot of info. They actually say NOT to buy that product and go to Patreon instead. But I can't afford to keep paying the same amount on Patreon every month indefinitely. =(
If I buy that chapter 3 version for $25, does it also include chapters 1 and 2?
And will that gumroad version continue getting support and updates in the future?
And will I be able to apply some of that purchase as a credit to the eventual final release, like you mentioned above?
Hey UnreliableNarrator! DO NOT BUY ON GUMROAD. That is how we distribute updates to our Patrons, so you will NOT be getting the complete game, credit, or future updates, only the current development build for that week. Sadly, I do not have a sales platform I can 100% guarantee credit.
We will be announcing a release date for Faulty Apprentice soon, so if you do not wish to donate towards development, your best bet is to play the Free Chapter One Demo and wait for final release.
Thank you for being interested in Faulty Apprentice! If you have any more questions, let me know. -din
