lowyhong: There will be a promo for the game on the main website
tomorrow.
DVD copies will be discounted too.
I'm still waiting for my order from back in early December.

Tsunami: Sorry, it looks like a junk game.
GOG stands for "Good Old Games", so it doesn't fit.
1. Subiective opinion. Obiective fact: the game is mostly critically acclaimed.
2. No, not anymore : )

I got mine hard copy in less than two weeks from ordering it. Maybe you should contact the publisher or the company that sends the DVDs?

Hm, still unsure about getting it and 7% off is not enough to make me want to try it at this moment. If something like 66 ct off could motivate me to buy a 9 euro game, then I probably would have bought it at full price, too. Anyway, Happy Birthday to the developer! :)

Do click through the individual offers, because the prices on those buttons on the page don't reflect todays "birthday" promo (the discounted prices show on checkout).

The cheapest, DRM-free version is for 3.71£ today (almost half off), Desura/Steam keys 6.50£ (about 30% off), DVD offers are discounted by around 3-5£.

Another review, this time from Just Adventure. They give it an A+.

johnki: So I gave a copy of this to my brother. In response, he laughed his ass off for the first half an hour of the game. Apparently it's so weird and so out there that it's funny.
avatar
Novotnus: It's certainly weird but - at least for me - in unsettling, lynchian way. I guess just as any horror it can be easily turned into comedy when you play it with somebody you can comment to or if circumstances make suspending disbelief harder.
Alone in a dark room at some points I was scared sh*tless. And at one point I laughet out loud but that's much further into the story.
Dunno why but I never saw this response.

Anyways, I watched him play parts of the first part of it while he was visiting and the part where [reply to see spoiler] I ended up busting out laughing, too. The animations were just so dreadful at that point that it bordered on ridiculous.

I intend to go back and try playing it myself, but the first half an hour, hour, however-long-it-was or so doesn't give the impression that the game is creepy, let alone scary, at all.

Yea, I guessed that's the part you are talking about - it's one of few jumpscenes \ shockers. Not my kind of horror as well (I kind of enjoy gruesome horrors like Graham Masterton's short stories but they fail to scare me). I was talking about scenes like the dead deer - you know that there is something in the woods that killed it, the thing is sentient enough to use a knife and you are unarmed and absolutely lost.
Animations didn't bother me at all - when I want photorealism, I go outside. In games, when I know what I'm supposed to see - it's good enough : ) In TCL I liked rough animations - Susan lives in dark, ugly world inhabited by dark, ugly people. That's how she sees people - as ugly, flat, malicious paper dolls. At least that's how I see it.
I suggest you play some more - or maybe try out the demo: it's set further in the story and imho it's one of the best segments, at least horror-wise - if it doesn't work for you, the game is probably not for you...
Thanks for the discussion. It seems somebody was listening...watching... so I thought you folks should be the first to know (Novotnus, you should appreciate this)...

The Cat Lady is coming to GOG very soon :)

Suhweet!

Maybe the whole thing was about disturbing imagery? Either way, this definitely sounds like something to look forward to.
Amazing news! Glad the game is coming to GOG. It's had wonderful reviews from what I've seen.
If they can do this, they can bring Humongous Entertainment children's games to GOG. ;)

Well start a thread and hopefully enough people will pop in and post their support that GOG will take notice that's what I been doing for the stripped out SVGA version of Larry 6 well that and making a community wishlist request.

I want to wait a little while before doing that because I've received a little hope in the area I mentioned and because this is about 25% of what I talk about, so I'm sure people are getting somewhat tired of it. Maybe in a few weeks, depending on what happens, I'll make a thread about this. (Thanks for the idea)
