I wouldn’t mind it being public. The more participants watching and interacting the better I say.

No concerns of hordes marching in, I don’t think that would happen, but more that this would be an honest mistake if not clearly labeled as public and it also means that if you’d like to compare the game or discuss ideas from the game to Reds, you’ll have to revert to this forum.

Yeah, it hadn’t occurred to me that #dfadventure might act as some kind of secret backdoor to the backer community—it’s a pretty small humble group of people…  I think if it becomes apparent that any of the worst-case scenarios start to play out we can establish some rules.

I know I’ve had conversations about REDS with other backers in the channel, and I think that’s allowed..  Greg has mentioned stuff in the channel, too.

I think it’s a bit of a hazy line, but I guess we’ll define some sort of policy on what would be “abusing the purpose of the fan-channel.”

Up until now I had the impression that this channel was backers only. I mean, I have been there a few times and I don’t remember seeing a nickname of someone who I haven’t seen here, but it’s certainly possible this has happened.

The thing is that as long as these threads are in the private forum, the existence and the time the channel would be most active will not be known so it’s less likely a non-backer would log in. If we start to advertise it then we have to agree we don’t discuss anything about the game in that channel.

Except if Chris continues to leak more things like in the time he was pinned for the video leak.

Looks like we’ve over gifted, and ended up with an extra copy of the game, so…..

Free copy of Gemini Rue on Steam to first person to respond!
(please, only if you don’t have the game)

Respond in this thread, then PM me a link to your Steam account or an email address (or post it here if you’re not fussed about security).

Huzzah! Do I win?

(only joking kids, I’ve already been gifted it! In fact, I’ve been working with jfrisby, leitu and yama this evening to get the settings right so I can stream the game to you all. How exciting is that? Not as exciting as a free copy? Well, fine.)

If you still have a spare copy, I’ll take one. I was going to buy it later today in preparation for the game club (I was holding out to see if it’d be on sale on Steam, but it doesn’t look like it’ll see a price drop before the game club starts), but I’d totally appreciate a gift!

Loved this game.  A bit short, but felt like a classic adventure game. I’ll be there.
