A very candid look at the development of Banner Saga 1 and 2, and how the team has learned throughout the journey.

Without this amazing community we would not be where we are! Thank you, each of you, for your support and contribution to the success of the Banner Saga.

Very interesting. I admit, I missed the BS2 release for several months because I've more or less quit Kickstarter.

Hehe, Ratatoskr falls in the category of people that John mentioned: "Oh, Saga 2 is out?" :o

Yeah, pretty much. And then I stayed up until 2 am to finish it.
Which reminds me, I should probably go sign into my Kickstarter account to see if anything else is out. Sometimes I wish folks would just send out a mass email instead ;)

Ratatoskr, if you're on our mailing list you'll get an email whenever there's important news. :D

Promise!!

Oh, no worries. I may even have gotten that email since I seem to be on your list for other things.

I think I just had to go into Kickstarter to check on the GOG version since I don't like Steam. And for some reason that took me about 4 months ;p

Just bought TBS2 :] No more waiting for russian translation & good sales. Little support & maximum respect to Stoic

A little goes a long way, Tiraglarm: Indie devs feed on kind words and appreciation ;) Also, Russian localization is closer, hopefully there for your second playthrough. You starting Saga2 with Alette, I assume?

Since TBS1 released my english reading skill has been improved, and it prob to play in english, but maximum story expiriens still only with localization

You starting Saga2 with Alette, I assume?
Yes, but why asking?

Hehe, to see if you'll make a good father! I knew you (that is Rook) wouldn't let your daughter (that is Alette) take that risk ;)

Its a thin line: you a good father coz you believe in your child, or you a good father coz you protect you child. I love TBS for the choises. Also my very first save (lost for now) with Aletta dies, and I didnt know about arrowbearer's death.
