At $20 you would think some goodies would be included other than just a manual.

When Atari was involved with this game there was a SP Beta version floating around with about 6 or 7 levels before the game was redone. This game has a very interesting development history. To be honest the Atari original concept of the game was better looking than this final product. It would have been super cool if they could have released the Atari beta version as well along with this final version. This final version without any goodies is just not worth the money IMO.

Humble Bundle once released a Frozenbyte bundle a few years back with a Jack Claw prototype game. That was super cool and one of the reasons I bought that bundle. I wish companies would include historical items like beta versions and prototypes more often. It makes it much more interesting.

Same goes for Singularity. A game recently added to Gog's ever-growing library. Unlike Timeshift however, Singularity works and the game is rather good. But yet too overpriced.

Yes. I have been hearing in other forums between these two games Singularity is the better game, but $30.00 is just too much to swallow. I'll wait for sure.

Absolutely. The game is approx. 6 years old had really bad selling numbers already back then.
But Gog sells it for nearly the same price as new.
I would pay $20 for it if it worked.

Just picked up a sealed copy of Singularity on Ebay for six bucks and downloaded the v1.1 patch. That's more like it.

Indeed
I have the game (retail), and would be awesome to play without DRM, but why is still so expensive? It's a fantastic game, but th publishers should understand it's over 10 years now... :)

I would pay 10$ if it worked, too. Unfortunately, refund is the only option right now, as it just crashes when loading, affinity does nothing, and I'm not doing any nonsense for a game from 2007. Avoid and do not buy.
