Been playing this one, and would like to say thanks for the fantastic game! Great atmosphere and sense of exploration and discovery. Even enjoyed listening to the dialog between the characters despite the fact that I'm usual the sort to hammer the spacebar to get through cutscene faster. Awesome!

Hello

I'd like to say how much I'm enjoying this game. It's intelligent and atmospheric and a joy to play. Also had fantastic customer service from the devs today for a minor issue my system was having with the game and the support couldnt have been better. Class act all round.

Ok i deleted some starforce drivers that were causing crashes in random games and now i can turn on sound effects without the screeching, there is still some crackling but the sound is useable, i guess the game doesnt like my creative soundcard.
Anyway with or without the sound effects im enjoying this game a lot, its wonderful, brings back the magic of old days with new ideas.

I bought the game but it has a problem.
Music sounds fine, voices sound fine, sound effects sound like a screeching noise, everytime i move the character the screeching starts.
Verified the files and all, same thing.

This game looks really good and it has a high rating. The whole concept looks really cool. I might get this when I get the chance!

I'm just alittle more glad I held out on the Bundle. This was the only game I didn't have that I was really interested. I'd rather have it updated via Desura than have one more thing to watch my Humble Bundle page for.

Would Humble Bundlers be able to get a Desura copy? :D

This game is amazing. Picked it up in the Humble Bundle like the majority of you I'm sure and decided to give it a whirl, and boy was I surprised. Really original and really fun, if you got it in the bundle I highly recommend you give it a shot.
