You can download Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Gold Bug Collector's Edition here.

Quote:
Edgar Allan Poe’s classic tale gets a reboot in this fourth game in the well-loved Dark Tales series. You and your detective companion Dupin have been summoned to the seashore to help William LeGrand discover the exact location of a treasure lost hundreds of years ago. But LeGrand isn’t the only one with designs on the pirate booty… A masked villain tries to make off with the code, and a mysterious woman in a veil seems to be connected. Follow the clues – with the help of the superior sniffing abilities of your Newfoundland sidekick – to track down the treasure and foil the criminal’s plans.

This is a special Collector's Edition release full of exclusive extras you won’t find in the standard version. As a bonus, Collector's Edition purchases count toward three stamps on your Monthly Game Club Punch Card!

The Collector’s Edition includes:
Bonus game
Re-playable mini-games, hidden-object scenes, and cut scenes
Soundtracks, wallpapers, screensavers, and concept art
Integrated Strategy Guide




As always, please remember to come back and tell us what you think.

Happy Gaming,
Ana wave

Thanks, Ana. I have enjoyed the three previous games in the Dark Tales series, and there's no doubt in my mind that I will enjoy this one too. wave

Richard, Thanks for the update. I always like reading your posts about BF games. I also look for games with fewer HOs.

I've noticed that games tend to be presented that way often. In that the trial period has just a few of HOs, then the remaining game pours them on. Kinda seems like a misrepresentation of the whole game.

Thank you, Ana!

I've been waiting for this to be released and and what better excuse for buying another game then it being my birthday. rotfl

The first three in the series: Murders in the Rue Morgue, Black Cat and Premature Burial were excellent. I'm expecting that The Gold Bug will be just as good, if not better! thumbsup

Richard, I thought of you when I discovered how many HOs there were, and I know you've said you didn't like them.

by the way, what does KJOS stand for? - sounds like call letters for a radio station
