Becky you are quite correct, the game is in ENGLISH and the DVD free movie disc is in PAL and region free.

It also has full subtitles on the game too.

The game has not been released in the UK as yet because of retailers (shops not web) not having a placement for it, this is because of the Playstation 3 and XBOX 360 xmas rush.

The game will be fully released in UK on FEB 29TH 2008.
The reason you can get it now from SRI Lanka is they had a web release there the other week. SRI Lanka are under English language.

Some copies that were ordered from G2 Games website before this retail issue happened have been fulfilled, any orders that were ordered under PRE-ORDER will be sent out on Feb 29th.

This is an issue that is hindering all publishers/developers this year trying to get PC games in before XMAS in the UK retail market.

If they trickle fed the orders instead of a full release this would create time for the title to be pirated. I hope you understand and thank you for your patience.........the game is worth the wait. Just ask INFERNO who is doign a review of the whole game shortly on this website. This by the way is a world exclusive.......................no other reviews have been done of the full game yet. You will see it here first!

Looking forward to your review Inferno! Sounds wonderful from comments so far but with so many games to play & buy crazy - I'm way behind so will make myself wait for the Feb release of this from Play.com I think!! (I will wait, I will, I will... think maybe! grin) smile

Becky - "Also, the GameBoomers reviewers are professionals and do everything within their power not to spoil any part of the plot/puzzles when they write."

Well there are spoilers to puzzles in the hints and tips section for this game by INFERNO before the review has been published. I do not think this is good considering the game is very new and already spoilers are appearing before the review.

I helped a lot INFERNO to complete the game so she could do the review no to post spoilers and ruin it for other players.

Could you get these posts deleted please, at least until after the review and then the tips should come from players not from the reviewer that has all the answers given to her.
INFERNO - We agreed not to do a wlakthrough for this or spoil it for anyone playing the game. Why the posts??

I feel as though you have used my help & go against what we agreed.

The game plays like a book/film, you would not want anyone to tell you the film or book before you read or watched it would you? especially before reading a review.

Fable -- Inferno has been responding in the Hints forum to specific requests for help from other players who are now stuck in the game. The game officially released through the G2 store a few weeks ago, and the GameBoomers who were able to get their hands on it are playing it. Inferno has been extremely careful to place everything under spoiler tags when she answers other gamer's requests for help in the Hints forum.

Are you saying that she should not help other people who are now playing the game and asking for help in Hints?

Becky - I know what she has done, and yes I do think she should not respond to hints seeing as it was me who helped her complete the game from Chapter 2 right to the end. Also we both agreed not to spoil it for others, she is supposed to be writing a review of the game not spoilers for others, from info given by me to help her in her review.

If I had known she was going to do this with the info I would not of helped her! It took me weeks to complete the game, it took her only days, do you see my point?

This I think is as bad as the developers themselves giving her a full solution and then her using it on the forum to help others, the knowledge was not gained by herself and noone spoilt it for her or me, that's the whole enjoyment and point of adventure games.....is it not?

I wonder what MSTUDIOS would think......care to comment MSTUDIOS??

Fable -- if someone is stuck in a game and asks for help, I don't think that person would be upset if one of the few people who has actually played the game agrees to help them.

Though some people enjoy spending weeks and weeks playing a game and hours and hours solving a particular puzzle, there are other people who want help after awhile. smile

As you can see by how busy our Hints forum is, this is true of almost all adventure games, not just Limbo of the Lost. Hundreds of people visit the Gameboomers Hints forum because they are stuck, even (sometimes) desperate for a solution. lol That's one of the things we do here, try to help people.
