Version 2.0 is coming in early January, 2014. Huzzah!!
The major difference between the current live version and 2.0 is the payment system.
We’re replacing the current freemium model with a free trial + purchase. Rather than unlocking bonus quests and dialogue options piecemeal, using ingots each time, you’ll unlock each and every quest – and all bonus story content – by purchasing the episode, once.
You’ll still receive a pack of ingots, yours to spend entirely as you choose, now that all quests and dialogue options are unlocked for you. So start thinking about how you’ll spend your discretionary ingots! On gameplay hints? The perfect heraldry item for your Coat of Arms? The latest bauble for your Chamber? Perhaps a donation to one of our fabulous Charity Partners: The Harry Potter Alliance or World Leadership Foundation? The choice is yours, and we can’t wait to see what you decide!
Two options to buy Episode 1:
This is the real deal. Unlock the full game experience and bring the world of the Time Tribe to vivid, breathing life in your world!
You’ll get all of the Episode 1 quests and dialogue options, online or on iPad, PLUS a premium mailer packed with print documents and collectibles to pull you deep into the inner world of the characters, and the story world they inhabit.
Pore over letters, emails, and radio scripts written by Lewis, Kate, Will and Iris. Not to mention unknown people who seem to have written, well, earlier in time … Decipher cryptic journal entries, maps, and other documents that tie back into the game as you’ll experience it online. Exclusive story clues, gameplay hints, bonus virtual items for your Profile and Chamber, real world activities – they’re all here, just waiting to be discovered!
You’ll also receive a Time Tribe membership pack with deluxe wax-sealed welcome letter, real timekey with velvet storage pouch, game invitations to share with friends, a membership card, and a folder to store all of your game documents, for Episode 1 and beyond. Plus, 80 ingots to spend however you like in the game!
Silver unlocks all of the Episode 1 quests and dialogue options, online or on iPad. Plus 30 ingots to spend as you like in the game!
Other changes afoot…
In case you missed our earlier posts on coming changes, chronos no longer restricts the number of actions you can take during a given time period (so play your hearts out).
Also, we are drafting materials to support educational use of The Time Tribe, in traditional classrooms and beyond.
We are very, very excited about these changes, and believe they will create a game that is simpler, more enjoyable, and more enriching to play. We know already from your feedback that many who have tried the game agree!
That’s about it for now. Other than that we hope to see you at the Keep in 2014!
