Bone: Discounts and DVD

I orginally posted this here, but I thought it would be probably better to put it in Game Support:

I am pretty much going to go through with buying the Bone series, but I have a few questions for anyone who knows the answers:
[LIST=1]
[*]Will there be a DVD version of the game which will be sent out for free (like Sam and Max)?
[*]If I buy the two episodes now, can I get the future episodes at a reduced price?[/LIST]

  • There are deluxe cd versions available for $5 more plus shipping, which include the soundtrack plus "other goodies". It looks like the bundle discount isn't applicable for them though.
    There's no current upgrade offer and I'm not sure there ever was one, so the outcome is unclear on your second question. Of course the fact that Eyes of the Storm is probably at least a year away makes any answer even more speculative.

    That's cool, but the CD only comes with the first game, but I'm looking into getting both games, which I can get for $2 extra from the CD.

  • There is a download bundle for $19.99. There is no bundle deal on the CDs right now and no upgrade option.

    So if I buy two episodes now for the $19.99 bundle, if/when the third one comes out, I won't get a discount?

  • You might, you might not. Since we're not working on Bone at the moment and we have no idea what will else be going on when the next Bone game comes out, it's not something we can predict.

    Out from Boneville originally came out for $20. If we had introduced subscription pricing then based on that price point and an arbitrary number of episodes, people would have been pretty pissed off when the price dropped to $12.99. ;) We can make these kinds of offers with Sam & Max because the whole season is coming out at around the same time, but with Bone it's safer to take it episode by episode.

    Also I'm moving this thread back to the Bone forum, Game Support should be reserved for technical problems.

  • Oh, okay. I'll just buy them both now then.

    SOLD! :D

  • Always the same question:any chance of a cds bundle offer?
    Cause I'm oing to complete my collection of the Telltale catalog, and I'd prefer to have a physical version of Bone.
    Thanx

  • I second that! I want to get both disc versions and it'll end up being over $40 including shipping for them both.

  • We might do a bundle in a couple of months. At the moment bundling stuff is kind of a pain, but it will hopefully be easier soon due to some stuff we're working on for the store.

  • Instead of starting a new thread, I'll post this here.

    I think a Bone DVD, in the style of the Sam & Max DVDs, would be a great idea, even though there are only 2 games out.
    For one thing, having disc based copy protection would be a BIG plus for me.
    However, that's not the main reason I think this would be a cool idea - rather, I think it would be awesome because of the commentary and such.
    Since these were Telltales very first adventure games, I think it would be extremely interesting to hear them talk about the learning process, what they did right and what they did wrong, how they would've changed them had they made them now with their current experience, maybe some tidbits about the early days at Telltale.. etc, etc.
    Maybe even talk a little bit about Telltale Texas Hold'em as I'm sure no such CD/DVD will ever be released for that game and it would be very interesting to hear some developer commentary on that game as well, being Telltales very first game.
