REVISED - THe game is out now. You can get it here.

A Spooky Adventure of Comic Proportions is Headed to North America! Viva Media’s Haunted is Slated for Release on December 11!

Check out the screenshots here.

Quote:
New York, NY November 19, 2012 - Viva Media and dtp Entertainment bring to you Haunted, a game where nightmares turn into reality and friends are unlike any you’ve had before – an obscure professor, an ax-wielding henchman, and a variety of ghostly acquaintances that can only be described as otherworldly. And you know what? They are! Join us in this journey between the living and the dead, where up is down and down is up. But don’t think for a minute just because your new friends are rigor mortis that their sense of humor is also grave. Quite the opposite! It’s sidesplitting. Get ready for the journey of a lifetime before it’s too late and you’re six feet under.

Take in the sights of 19th century London, Scotland, Transylvania and more, but beware, you’re traversing across dangerous lands. The journey will not go unchallenged; solve spooky puzzles and creepy challenges, and your hard work will earn you ghastly delight! But if things get downright treacherous, remember this: the fate of the spirit world and overall cosmic balance are in your hands!

Haunted is scheduled for release on December 11, 2012.

Features

· Experience a spine-chilling comic story, like something right out of a Dickensian novel
· Visit gloomily beautiful settings in London, Scotland, Transylvania…and a goldfish bowl
· Encounter more than 30 scurrilous characters, with sparkling animation including sophisticated facial expressions
· Rediscover the adventure genre anew, with cooperative ghost team-play and the optional solution assistance

Publisher: Viva Media®
Category: Adventure
Price: $19.99
Developer: Deck 13
North American Launch Date: December 11, 2012
System requirements: Windows 8/7/Vista/XP; 1.4 GHz or better; 2 GB of RAM; 6 GB free hard drive space; 128 MB graphics card; enhanced for DirectX 9.0


Happy Gaming!

Ana :wave:

Wow, that was fast, thanks zak! I think I'll hold off and see if there is a disk or GOG version first, though. I like to avoid download DRM if possible.

This is not the Viva Media release. The game being released by Viva Media will cost 19.99. The one on Gamersgate is the dtp release in Europe.

Yes, that is what I referring to in response to the post by Zak a few up from here. You can see the actual cost from Viva on my original announcement and it's only 19.99.

Thanks for the info, Ana, and that is good news. thumbsup

Viva Media also released Lost Chronicles of Zerzura, and their copy protection was fine with me - just a code you have to enter much like Culpa Innata and The Lost Crown, and no limited activations. thumbsup Hopefully, Haunted should be the same.

Just checked the price and the digital download is, in face, $19.99 but if I want a boxed copy then I have to pay an additional $13 for shipping. So, my total cost would be approximately $33.

Since trading games has become much harder due to all the digital downloads (therefore making less games available for trade) it is no longer to my advantage to hold out for the boxed copies. Therefore, it looks like I'll be going the digital download route when I decide to buy the game.

Thanks, BrownEyedTigre smile12

However, I can't seem to get a sensible deal from Viva Media thumbsdown

I would like to buy some of the games they offer but I don't want to download and if I order a disk version from them I'm always quoted over $70 US Dollars as the shipping charge rolleyes12

I went to Amazon.Com only to be told I couldn't buy it from them - although I was recently allowed to buy a different game from them woozy

But it appears it will be coming to Amazon UK at some time so I've signed up there to be notified when it's available thumbsup12

Fantastic. Just ordered mine and with the reduced price and cheaper shipping cost it still came to around the same as the digital download and I will get a disc copy.

Thank you Ana.

It's even better if you find something else at Amazon to get 25 dollars in your cart which isn't hard to do and you can get it shipped free.

I'd go with Amazon. At least their customer service is alive.

Viva-Media does not seem to want to reply to my inquiries as to when the game is available. I placed an order 12/4 for the download with confirmation "Order Complete," however no download links. Created two tickets - so far heard nothing from them.
