Director Cut --- means that it is the original adventure but enhancements set in to it --- just as many Movies have "Director's Cut" versions. This issoes has an alternative ending which the first issue did not, and an added chapter, a fixed mouse while 360 degree panning --- and enhanced sound and graphics. There have been more Easter eggs included in this issue. If you play the game exactly as you played the original you will miss much of the enhancements.

The scoring system did not work well and therefore has been scraped. I'm hoping a patch will some day be added for it.

Easter eggs might be fun to find, but they are not why I buy a game. Actually I'm surprised at the number of technical problems with the game. I have the patch installed, and am still having a lot of random crashes.

Personally, I'd be happier with less Easter eggs and a game that runs smoother. Hopefully, with the next patch, they will have resolved some of these problems. It's a little disheartening to be at a choice scary part of the game, and have it crash to the desktop.

I'm glad, and I hope it continues to do so for you. Because in my opinion it's a great game. For some reason, I'm having a random crashing problem. Hopefully, it's limited to just me. lol

Just a clarification, Scratches is different from Scratches:Director's Cut right?

It's the same game with technical modifications and add ons.
So if you played the original, you have played the major game. There is an additional chapter at the end.

Hi guys. I'm enjoying playing Scratches again (I like the new music but haven't seen the Easter eggs and other new goodies yet), and last night I got out of the main game and played some of the new chapter. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't played it yet, so I'll just say it's a little creepy and I have chills! I'm hoping that it's long and that I'll find more stuff as I move along, but even if I don't, what I just saw was scary enough to warrant my buying this version! wink

Cat, who was scared by just the atmosphere of the first one, and is now scared by more than that...

First post in over a year, and of course it's about Scratches! smile

Interesting... I'm still clueless about this alternate ending to tell the truth, or most of the new Easter eggs for that matter. Hope a full guide to the DC additions shows up eventually.

I'm on day three of my re-play. Love the new control, always wanted that with the original. The changing sky graphics are very nice. And hey, I'll take any excuse to re-visit a great game.

The new chapter was fun while it lasted, though that was all of about an hour for me after getting past a serious crash bug. Still cool to see the house six years on, though, and startling revelations indeed!

Not thrilled about the bugs and overall laggy performance compared to the original, but I know Rael's on the case to squash such issues.

So far then an interesting albeit flawed addition to an already stellar game.
