Episode 3.2 to be released in 2 weeks

OK, I know you all disappointed.

We have promised Munchausen series to be a trilogy and instead you all see this damn “To be continued…” at the end of the third episode. I know, I know…

But I have a good news. We’re going to keep the promise.

How? The third episode will be released again, as version 3.2. Comparing to all previous releases it will be a double-length episode. It will include episode 3.0 (with some changes) and this time it tell the story till the very end. For sure. So, prepare to see 7 more minutes of Adventures of Boris Munchausen!

When it will happen? This time I can name a real date. Yes, episode will have double-length, but you will not need to wait for whole one year to see it.  In fact we already have it done and it will be released to the public on August 14th, 2013 (near two weeks to wait!).

But that’s not all. For our most impatient viewers we have an offer. If you don’t want to wait for two weeks, you can watch the episode 3.2 right now. Honestly. You can buy a private link to watch by donating any amount through the form below. That’s it.

Buy Now Button

This is just an option if you are impatient to see the story end or just want to give us some support. For all the rest the episode 3.2 will be released and freely available under CC BY-SA license on August 14th.

Stay tuned!
