I figured that Deck13 and Runesoft was enjoying some success in the Linux version space. I suspect that they'll make a Linux version- but it remains to be seen if there'll be a pre-order play like the last two passes with Ankh and Ankh2 or if this one will be floated directly without having a break-even level of interest already in place. As long as I'm assured that I'll get either the game or my money back, I won't mind doing the pre-order thing with them- they've proven themselves well enough to be given the benefit of the doubt on that score.
Good. Runesoft's had a shaky start on a few things (I can't comment too much on LGP's former partner... ) but it seems that they may have found a spot in the segment finally where they're doing a lot better at things.
I'm downloading the trailer now, these guys can pull out some really funny characters and interesting games... Reminds me of a mixture between Indiana Jones and Monkey Island (oddly both from Lucas Arts ) I may be pre-ordering this one.
I remember playing this demo and absolutely hating the game. Oh well, to each his own.
I wouldn't go as far to say that I hated the demo. I simply didn't like it. When I tried it out I found the dialogues absolutely shallow and ridiculous. Needless to say that I didn't find the jokes funny at all.
Also, I didn't like the graphics. What irritated me most were the strange colours.
This game simply isn't for me. There are not many, but definitely better Adventures out in the market.
I think they are committing a big mistake, I don't know if you have noticed that "heavy" price difference:
Jack Keane for Windows, can buy it for 20 Euros / 30 USA dollars;
Jack Keane preorder for Linux, 40 Euros / 60 USA dollars.
