I have been quiet long enough. and I wish to say thank you to my GB Family ... you have no idea how your support has touched me.
For the record, if one intends to quote another it is always a wise idea to make sure that it is correct.
Fable stated and quoted that I said the following in a private message to him:
"..this game should not have a walkthrough it would spoil it!"
that just is not correct --- here is what I said in my PM (which I still have):
I thought about writing a walkthrough for this -- but I think it would ruin it. The ending should be kept secret. Don't you think?
which means that I would not write a walkthrough --- and I won't.
And I have never mentioned anything except for the pure love of this adventure and my excitement for it here in the Discussions Forum. As a matter of fact in my First Look --- I didn't mentioned any spoilers within the demo... and won't either.
From my reading of these posts here I can tell you all here at GB that the betrayal has not been conducted by me.
I did ask for help that is true. But "Fable" introduced himself as a fellow gamer to us at GB, and had stated how he had "worked for weeks solving this adventure" and this was why he was upset when in truth he was one of its creators all along. Betrayal? Yes, today I have been taught the meaning of this word quite well and so have many of my fellow boomers.
As for helping out in the Hints forum, my effort and mind set was only to "pay it forward" to assist a beleagured boomer...but always with spoiler tags. And now I'm happy to report that I am not the only one who helped. Gratefully, that is what we all do here.
I feel very sorry for Tim and Laurence... who are being put through this embarrassment. How could you do this to them, Steve? How could you hurt your production this way... all along you are Fable. IP Adresses don't lie. What did you think you were playing at?
I was never told that I was doing an "exclusive review for the world at large" --- until I read it here in this thread.
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!
The only "exclusivity" I had been given was a piece of info about the adventure itself. Something I was asked to keep quiet about and I will honor that.
While it is true that I did indeed fall in love with this adventure and have completed my review, I will not be submitting it here or anywhere else as this wild tirade has compromised it and me. How unfortunate for you -- our membership and the game. I am returning it to Becky so that she may send it back. I can do nothing else but this as the game has been singularly destroyed for me.
