Title: cognition ep 4 release date?
Post by: ReldonBrimstone on August 01, 2013, 04:29:35 AM
Hey all,

I was just wondering if there's a definite release date for episode 4 yet, in the past, the time between episodes was about three months, and since ep. 3 released in may, that could indicate it should be sometime soon...(here's to hoping it is! :D)

So, is there an official release date yet?

Really looking forward to playing the final chapter

Hello Reldon! No official date just yet, but we're eyeing the end of the summer, generally speaking. :)

Hmm, I'm not sure about that, either. But from I read on the announcement thread on Steam--they said their suppose be doing some like a 'Live Launch Party' type stream on YouTube tomorrow @ 11am PST (2pm EST). So I'm sure it'd be available by then, but idk for sure.

I just received by Steam product key for the Season Pass today, but obviously it's not really up on there yet. I'd say try checking back after 12, just to see--out of curiousity--if they did load it up. I know I probably will.

I actually, purposely stopped playing it for a while b/c I wanted to wait until I got my PK for it for voting on it in Greenlight (on Steam).

So I see Steam and GOG versions are readily available for download, but what about GamersGate?

I bought the season pass there back when the first episode was released, before they popped up on Steam and GOG. So my question is, when's episode four gonna release on GamersGate? I don't feel like buying it again. Or rather, I can't afford it ATM.

So I did a little time conversion, and 11 AM PDT is 20.00 CEST (where I live). It is now 20.12, but I can't seem to find the page where the launch party is supposed to be happening, when I go to the PO studios Youtube channel, I just get the episode 4 trailer. I tried clicking on the banner on the main page, but it just goes to the trailer over and over again. What do I do? Or did I mess up my time conversion?

Same here.
(+ I don't want to re-buy the game as I bought it from a service that proposed it in the first place, as a kind of "woohoo, they sell the game, while others 'snob' it? Cool, gonna support both the game and this site!" So, now... I feel kind of "left behind"?)

When can we hope to see episode 4 available on Gamersgate?

[Sorry if my English may sound weird, it isn't my mother tongue... at all!]

Nice to see I'm not the only one! I just sent an email to their support. Hopefully they'll respond soon.

we'll try our best to send the keys ASAP. :)

If we take a while to do so it'll be because we've been getting quite a lot of them :P

But don't worry, you'll all get your keys as soon as possible

I purchased the Cognition Pass November 3, 2012 (got that from my E-mail). So far I have the download link for Episode 1-3. But I've been seeing people finishing this game...

So I thought I should have gotten the download link on E-mail sent all ready...

What's going on? Please help.

No prob' at all Stika, just: do you think it will be a matter of days? Weeks? ...Months?

Just to have an idea about how long we should be waiting...

Did you purchase it through our store? If so you should've gotten an email with episode 4. If you didn't get it can you check your spam folder? Let me know if it's not there, I'll look into it

That's up to the individual sites, but I THINK you should get it next week. It definitely should NOT take months.

Ha!

Just checked Gamersgate: it's available -> downloading... thanks a lot, time to play now!

So we had to wait a day before it was released on GamersGate? That's just plain s****y. I'm very disappointed.

EDIT: I guess this is what I get for pre-ordering the whole season, back in Oct '12. Down-prioritized.
I was really looking forward playing it last night, but now it's a little too late. I had the time to do to play the game to completion yesterday, but now I won't have the time for at least a whole week. Thank you, for ruining my expectations last night.

I'm sorry for being in pissy mood. I just think I'm entitled to something more than... this! As I said, I'm severely disappointed.

Please bare in mind, Cognition: Episode 4 was sent to every store at the same time, but different stores have different approval processes and some of them take longer than others. We're currently trying to get in contact with Gamersgate over the delay. We didn't prioritize one store over the other, it's just that some take longer to approve entries.

No one here was down-prioritized :)



There's nothing on the spam folders.

Mmm... can you forward your receipt to support@postudios.com? We'll definitely look into it

Has anyone had issues from Rain Digital? I got a season pass back in December but I haven't gotten episode 4 yet from them.
Title: Re: cognition ep 4 release date?
Post by: stika on September 20, 2013, 11:44:12 AM
The episode was submitted to the Rain store, but if it's not there yet it's likely still going through Rain's approval process
Title: Re: cognition ep 4 release date?
Post by: tt612 on September 24, 2013, 08:37:36 PM
Are there any updates on this? I also bought the season through Rain and haven't seen any emails yet.

There's some issues on Apple's side that we're trying to get resolved.

Issues with Apple's censorship policy (maybe Apple say that Episode 4 is too cruel) or issues with Sandboxing or technical issues that don't allow it to run?
Any hopes?

Not really anything to do with censorship or anything like that. Just Application Loader having a difficult time sending them the app in the first place and generating an error they have no documentation for.
