Played through about an hour of this. The puzzles are really clever, logical, and it has a great atmosphere to boot. There's an interesting memory system where you remember bits of information and even observations of certain items in the area, and literally add them to you inventory for later use. It was a little counter intuitive at first since I've never played an adventure game that utilized a system like this, but once I got the hand of it I can see just how many options this opens up for deepening the game play. Plus you can switch between characters a la Day of the Tentacle which ads another layer.

To clarify on the inventory system a bit, you actually have 3 inventories: a "long-term memory" inventory consisting of major events and stories told to you by other characters; a "short-term memory" inventory which consists of your observations. This inventory is limited so that you can't just select every single thing you look at and decide to add it to the inventory, which I originally thought was the case. This is great as it adds an inventory management component to the system; the last is your "item inventory" which is your average bottomless pocket game play mechanic typical to the genre.

Also, only an hour in and there's already been a "Yentl" reference.

I don't want to assess it prematurely, but based on my limited time with Resonance it seriously has potential to be one of the greatest point and clicks I've ever played... like, DOTT great. I'm so pumped. I just hope I can find the time in my schedule to really get into it.
Thanks. I had a feeling it would be this good. I've pre ordered, but I'm waiting for the real game to start. No demo for me.

It's actually the first game I've ever pre-ordered in my entire life. And I have been playing games for over 20 years. Can't freaking wait.

Anyone know what time exactly it'll be released today??

It should be already available, where i live it's already 1:10pm
I'm also from europe so I am waiting too ;) But I think we will have to wait till later today since it's only 8 am EST. I don't know where the game developer is based and if they are from california it might even be late evening here until we get to play. Just be patient ;)
East coast time it's like 7:45am, so maybe it's available at 9:00am East coast time like the Battle of the Games promo will be. Sounds about right to me.

EDIT: They posted about 20 minutes ago on twitter that it would be 2.5 hours until Resonance is on the site. That means I'll have to go to work and won't actually get it until tomorrow now :-(

Will be available at 4pm, it's 2:37pm now
The whole time since I pre-ordered time flew by...... now in the final countdown it decides to drag...... well at least I don't have to wait in a line outside a shop.
Thanks to this awesome company for allowing me to 'pre-order' this game on the day of release. I would have gladly paid the extra dollar to support the company, but I do appreciate it none the less.

Thank you, looking forward to playing this game. Taking a chance without playing the demo. The screenshots look very classical and the promise of voice acting sold me. I, admittedly, have trouble becoming immersed in games that lack voice acting these day.

Good luck, hope it's epic!

It *is* epic. Especially the voice acting. My favorite scene/puzzle is talking on the phone (later in the game... you'll see). There's no spectacular action or clever interface manipulation in this scene, just your current character talking and a voice on the other end answering. The voice acting carries it (well, and writing, obviously).

Wow, you're getting me really excited to play this game. Only a few more hours to kill, I guess. The game I am playing now, 'The Dark Eye - Chains of...' unfortunately does not like to alt+tab on my laptop. I have to keep closing it altogether to see if my DL is available yet, luls!
Looking forward to this. Huge fan of wadjet eye games.

Played the Blackwell games and Gemini Rue, they're among my favourite point n click games. So hopefully Resonance is going to be another great game to add to the list. :D
It's available for download!
