Hi guys-
Got a hankering for a Myst-like, and ran across this oldie, but it seems to be totally unavailable? Even a previous thread with link to desura.com didn't work...Any fresh ideas?

I've tried looking for it as abandonware just in case, but no joy there either (at least not so far).

Murphy,
Check your PM.

The game was released in 2012 according to archived pages at the web archive of neeblagames.com ***here***

There is more information about the game in the developer's postmortem -- what went right, what went wrong, also on the archive of the neeblagames.com website ***here***

Murphy,
BEWARE of sites that offer "FREE" game downloads. You will get some "free" stuff that you don't want, and it won't be a "game", and it may not be "free". I've been there, done that. Always look for a legitimate game site, such as GOG, Steam, Humble Bundle, Gamersgate, Zodiac, etc. HAPPY GAMING!
Sandy

I made sure to mention that I didn't know if any of the sites were safe, Sanford ....

This is a much older game that I played and enjoyed quite a while ago. I later tried one of those "Free" sites to replay it. It took three days and some rather inventive profanity to clear all the crud out of my computer. Sadly, I don't remember which site it was.

Hi

I played The Five Cores in 2014, made a walkthrough for it to and I have still got it.....I could be wrong but I was never aware that this game was then a FREEWARE game. So if any sites offers it as a freeware game I would be very carefull to download it from those sites.

It was a purchased game from a single person with the name Neebla Games. Its price was around $10. I placed a copy on a disc. Mark Hasley reviewed it for us and then I played it. I see that my links all need to be dropped.

Take care,

Bill

FYI, as per GameBoomers rules, we do not support any "free" or "abandonware" website downloads on a game that was not a free game to begin with without some documentation that the developer approves it.

Good Rule!

This is what Bert Jamin said about the game in his walkthrough.

"Foreword
The Five Cores is made by Neebla Games. You can buy the game for only € 6,99. Is it worth it? Well I can be short about that. It is worth every penny you pay for it and even much more. To be honest with you... it is a very long time ago that I played a game that I loved that much. So my advice... get the game ASAP!"

Bill

Maybe it would be best to delete my post of the download sites I found on Google then, BrownEyedTigre ??

Even though I DID clearly say I couldn't vouch for any of them, I would hate for anyone to suffer if they did decide to visit any shocked

Anyone can do a Google search, Mad.
There's no need to remove the link.

I wasn't able to find any legitimate seller for The Five Cores using Google though.

If anyone does know of one, please post.

I bought the game direct from the developer's website at neeblagames back when it was active, but that website is gone now.

Going by what he posted there, the developer was having trouble solving some peoples' issues playing the game, so he may have stopped selling it because of the support issues.
