Great news indeed!
I'm absolutely tempted to buy the game right away - it's my most anticipated release for months. So congratulations for your release! :)
I'd like to buy the game on GOG (just can't stand Steam - part of the resistance since 2004 ;) ), but I've had very bad experiences with the way GOG handled QfI (they "forgot" to apply the updates for months, even now it's not up to date...). Won't you offer the game directly on your site or on itch.io?
Cheers

I've seen my incredibly stupid mistake and corrected it right away. Mea culpa, I was just too excited about the news it seems. :D ;)

I helped Bt put together an Itch.io page earlier: http://infamousquests.itch.io/oott-the-kings-challenge

That said, Bt's reply regarding GOG updates can be read on page 2 here: https://www.gog.com/forum/general/release_the_order_of_the_thorne_the_kings_challenge_37063

Haha! No probs! I've seen big name publications call it Throne, I think it's going to be something that happens forever!

Hey, my problem with GOG was last year, when they waited months until they released 1.1 of QfI. I was in contact with you back then and I know it wasn't your fault. It's great to hear you work closer together now, so I think I'll give it a try on GOG (I assume I won't get all the fancy extra-stuff on itch?).
Thanks!

I must say i had goosebumps while playing for the first time. This game is a labour of love and it shows in every detail i've seen so far. The Music! The Voiceacting! The Graphics! I am SO in love with this game right now, can't wait to spend many more hours with it. Congratulations for the release and i am so happy that the next games from IQ are already on the horizon.

Just started the game and I like it. Lute playing reminds me of Loom, and it's great! Just one suggestion. May be in addition to easy and hard mode, you can make an expert mode, where making a mistake won't produce a warning and canceling of the tune until one is done playing. I think it makes it more interesting and fun for those who like musical instruments. Loom actually does exactly that (if you are wrong, in the end of the draft it just says that it doesn't sound like a draft).
