Articy Draft Storytellers Bundle
Going for the Season Pass, Tier 2!
Investing to make phat dosh, Tier 3!
Did you see how much this even costs?
I'm already artsy enough. Thanks, but no thanks.

Note: The Detail is a single key

The game is sold as single episodes on Steam, or in a store bundle (not as a store sub).
Since the sub that is provided as a key is not on the store, and doesn't have a price, it can only be given away as one of the app IDs on SG, and thus doesn't exactly provide a lot of CV. Currently SG lists 'The Detail Episode 1 and 2 Bundle', but I have no idea how to find the correct CV for that. I think it might be 10 CV at present? Should of course be listed as bundled afterwards.

Since the sub that is provided as a key...

If that's what we are being given in the bundle, that's what should be in the chart:

https://store.steampowered.com/sub/102013/

Even though it's removed, it will still highlight properly with the RaChart script for those who already won it.

By default, SG uses a referral link for BundleStars.
You can disable it if you like in your user settings.

Because SteamGifts itself is adding referral links for outbound BundleStars links. CG wants you to make him money. You volunteer. Enjoy.

Pretty sure he is already sitting on a cash cow of advertising revenue from hundred of thousands of users loading ads (especially those on mobile devices) on every page. Anyone who thinks someone would do all of this out of altruism is naive. Anyway, that before even adding in referral links now and Patreon too. The ads are fine but the referral links (not even links that he posted himself at that) are taking things too far and crossing the line in my opinion, however this is another discussion entirely.

Descendant and the rest of the second tier already been in a bundle, seems expensive for what you get.
And with the third you get a mmorpg that gets very mixed reviews.

As far as I know only Episode 1 of The Detail has been bundled before. Perhaps a similar situation with The Descendant.

Most probably, I looked in my Steam list and Outlook and they support the 10/10/2016 release and purchase.

I found the name of the bundle here, at the 10/10/2016 post.

At 2.99$, it was indeed cheaper but there's always the chance it will get in other bundles or sales.

I haven't used it, and was excited to see - but "This version is for non-commercial use only. " So I'll pass. Check out https://twinery.org/ .

Nothing is built with it but designed with it. Articy isn't a engine, only a tool for laying out (pretty much everything) in the design.

Its like flowcharts within flowcharts within built-in databases and fancy emulation of path/choices - you can test paths and variables playing like a text adventure, so you can see if theres any dead ends as well as how variables work out or bug or whatever (simple examples: money, health, damage). It works exactly like a text adventure but in the context of a design tool its for emulation of anything- say its the project files of 'half life 3' one choice/path would be to talk with the guard to follow you to the next area or go alone or whatever.

Emulation and flowcharts are just a part of it however. Its database for everything, being able to draw maps, and linking everything together is what makes it amazing. In a npc you list some itens in its inventory and ban, there in its info you have linked the itens already in the database (their stats and such). In a map you put a marker in one part and assign it to 'npc' guy - now whenever you see npc guy anywhere in the files it shows he is found on this or that map, on this or that workflow, scene, etc, etc.

Its for design, planing and keeping sanity.

Its a hell of a great software but a bit hard to learn at first (but lovely interface, some really clever stuff with windows and usability).
I ended up using it less for what i got it at first because its too much for simple games- at college i was making mostly jams and thinking small, i ended up using more for planing my tabletop rpg campaigns (amazingly well btw). But i did sketch some bigger concepts and oh boy its great - ive also managed to use it for some high level and abstract design instead of the typical examples of scenes, npcs, itens, etc- things like laying out complex game rules in details, putting side to side a number of alternatives to help visualize and crunch numbers to decide wich to use. I used to that with simple flowcharts on paper on even webapps on bigger projects (even non game related) i found that having a number of related flowcharts linked with related database really helpful.

Theres lots of studios that use Articy, from small to big.
A few big names stand out- Ubisoft, EA (too umbrella, idn if its one studio or if EA bought license) and CD Projekt Red. Yeah, those guys.

I bought it years ago on deep discount; Pricey for me and waaaaay higher then... this.
But still worth it and glad i bought it.
This is a steal.

Thanks for the remarks, it looks like a pretty useful piece of software and not just for game design. I'd imagine it would be quite useful for writers and storytellers in general. Tolkien probably would have killed for something like this in his day... XD

So for game designers this is a must-buy software?
I still debating it a bit. I have been looking for a good organizer tool, combining Twine and Trello and paper prototyping. The new version has unity integration apparently, which sounds incredibly amazing.
Would it be possible to update for a lower price or something?

Really appreciate that detailed response; thank you. While it's not quite what I thought it might be at first, it still sounds like something I would find very useful.

Is Articy Draft 2 much different than the newer version on Steam?

Comment has been collapsed.

Not really, they added scripting and Unity integration, which is, IMO, a dumb idea for a software designed for the convenience of people who aren't supposed to deal with programming, AD2 has all you need to make the layout of your game's story and gameplay. I asked the devs to implement a AD Reader, like Adobe Acrobat reader, because then you can show your work to someone or have a team member who won't be adding things to it to refer to it, they said they'll think about it, but instead now they offer to buy EXPIRING licenses in bulk for your team just so your programmers will know what's where (you could export to Word or Excel, but last time I tried it, it was rather broken and it's impossible to make sense of whatever you get as a result). I suggest grabbing AD2 instead if you'll have a use for it and avoid AD3 unless you really-treally need any of the advertised new features no matter how well they do what they're supposed to.

Hi, do you know what's the difference between AD2 + articy:draft 2 SE - Commercial Use Upgrade DLC and without dlc ?
What features are in Commercial Use Upgrade ?

I think i need this software, however i'm not sure with commercial upgrade dlc

Commercial DLC doesn't add anything other than legal permission from the devs to use the software to make money (use it to make games you'll be selling). You can still use it to make free games without commercial license.

I was pleasantly surprised when I started playing the Descendant a few months ago. Got it from Indiegala.
I played it till the end, and that doesnt happen to me often with bundled games. It isnt GOTY material and has some mayor flaws but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

What I found odd is that only 1.2% of all players finished it (finished episode 5). That only means no one is playing and everyone is just collecting the cards. Just 5% gave this game a try (unlocked the very 1st achievement which you get when you start the 1st episode).

If you like the Telltale games this one is worth checking out.

just wanted to say this game deserves more attention ;). It shouldnt be just a card idler game.

I felt like scammed after bought tier 1 then seeing the damn tier 3 "articy:draft 2 SE - Commercial Use Upgrade DLC" for commercial use, dammit

What's the difference between the two?

Comment has been collapsed.

Nothing at all. The commercial use version functionally acts as a donation element for the developers, with the intent that you'd willingly offer it if you end up releasing your product commercially. The developers of articy are relying on you self-enforcing that, as there are no limitations within the software or ways for them to verify your use.
