I just found out about the game today (I have no idea why I missed the Kickstarter back then) and was really glad that it's still possible to get the physical version!

Just for confirmation before I back, as I didn't find any specific information about it: I guess the physical version will contain the game for all platforms (i.e. Linux, Mac and Windows) on the physical media, and those will be DRM free versions (i.e. not require Steam to install or play the game), correct?

I too found out just recently about this game at MGC (and had a wonderful conversation with an attic door dev while trying to mitigate some website issues lol) and would love to preorder but have the same question as above.


Thanks for going out on a limb for making this!

An update, I went back and spoke with someone at mgc, he told me there was a plan for a gog release and that's likely the code that would be physical. He couldn't tell me if it was on optical media or flash drive though.

Thanks a lot for gathering the information! A GOG code in the box would be amazing, but I guess I'll have to wait for some more definite confirmation though. I don't want to end up with a DVD containing the Windows version only and a Steam code :-P

Hey guys, sorry for not checking in sooner!  Media is such an odd place these days; DVDs are almost useless, and one wouldn't be big enough to hold the game anyway!  I think it might be more appropriate to just include a flash drive with the game on it?  Ultimately, I think we'll send a poll out and see what everyone thinks is best before we go to print.  We'll be assembling the packages by hand, so it's likely we can customize it a bit too.

Thanks for backing us, by the way!  We really appreciate it!

I’m a backer I paid $100.00 to get early builds of the 13th doll and on Attic Doors update says they sent early game builds to backers that have that feature how do I get the early access builds name is Steven Mijanovich you will find me on the backers page on website please help me 

Developer

Hey Steveo, send me a mail at the13thdoll AT gmail.com and I'll get you all set up.  Thanks!

A USB flash drive would be an excellect choice, but I guess it's also more expensive than even multiple DVDs. (Or just revolutionize the marked by using a Blu-ray just as "The 7th Guest" revolutionized the market by using CD-ROMs :-P)

Personally I haven't been backing yet, please let us know when a decision has been made, or as soon as I can be sure a DRM free physical Linux version will be available!

Developer

Hey ifo - we'll definitely have a Linux version available, whether it's DRM free is the question tho.  We plan to release on GOG, and sent them a test build last week.  Just waiting on their approval before we can confirm ;)

I guess I should have written: as soon as I can be sure a DRM free physical Linux version will be available in the box :-)
