The Banner Saga 3 Promotion Thingy
Hey! I backed Banner Saga hard, like, so hard that I got to write a Godstone for the sequel and create an item and stuff. I was asked to help with a promotion for The Banner Saga 3, and I know the second one was a rough ride for the studio so I said yes several times in rapid succession.
They said that I could make three to five items for Banner Saga 3, but if I could make five items instead of three, why wouldn’t I do that? So let’s go with five. Also: Twitch Prime is setting up a thing where members can download the original Banner Saga for free through their Twitch Launcher from February 23 through the 28th. And then, from March 2nd through March 6th, Twitch Prime members can get Banner Saga 2 for free via the same mechanism. Here is the novel piece: for every person who downloads and plays either game this way, a dollar gets donated to the development of The Banner Saga 3 - up to $200,000 total. You can try Twitch Prime free for 30 days here and you’ll get to keep the games (and help out the developer, Stoic) even if you don’t end up subscribing.
That’s a lot of text! Maybe this incredibly insane video Gabe and I made with Kris Straub will nail down the finer points.
