It's about time!
« on: June 01, 2006, 05:19:47 PM »

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
I love these older style point and click adventures - life hasn't been the same without Monkey Island. you can't beat a bit of cartoon humour.   :D  :D  :D

p.s. It was MY birthday last Saturday - don't tell me I have to wait a whole year to get a "happy birthday" on this site's Happy Birthday section?!!! :cry:

Thanks for your support, Cath!!

We hope to release the game later this month--I'm excited for you to play it and experience the nostalgia of playing a classic style adventure again:D

Oh, oh...no way.  In fact, not only will you not have to wait a year to get a Happy Birthday Post, you will even now get a happy birthday SONG, sung by a member of the development team:

Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday TO YOU.
Happy BIRTHDAY dear Cathhhhhhh...
Happy Birthday to YOU!

I made that one up myself ;)

Actually, as soon as the game is released in America, it can be bought worldwide.  The game will be available via our online store, and can be shipped worldwide :D

And what about digital download options? I'm sure I'm not the only one who is unwilling to pay international shipping costs - it's a big turn-off for me.

Hey JustLuke,

The game is so large, that we've decided against this option for now.  Even offering the game to beta testers and journalists as a download has been problematic for our server.

There have been a number of publishers though who have been interested in offering digital delivery services, although we haven't made any sort of deals at this point.

Additionally, I feel the game will be offered at a reasonable enough price, that shipping won't be all too problematic :)
