Well, everyone here is having much better luck than I am. I've contacted customer service for Nordic Games three times, and was sent the same unhelpful automated response every time. No amount of turning off antivirus/firewall or using different browsers are going to help if the only file they sent me to begin with was a JPEG image. And I know for a fact it's only an image because it's listed that way even before I click on the download link. steamed Unfortunately, I will not be ordering from this company again, and I've requested a return.

I think I'm just going to stick it out until the full game is released on GOG. At least that way I'll be able to play it all the way through at once.

venus,

That is just nuts. Having nothing but an automated reponse come back from "customer service" is something I'd expect from the government or AT&T, but from a game site? What a bummer. And how in the heck did they screw up their download so badly that you got a jpeg at all?

I don't blame you for being steamed. Here's luck in getting your refund instead of another jpeg.

Gil.

Venus, I sent my contact at Nordic a message for help for you. Hopefully it will help you. I believe it may be your Internet provider or settings stripping the link from your email.

Thanks, traveler! I still haven't gotten a response on the return request, so not sure what's going on there. crazy I'm sticking to GOG from now on, that's for sure.

Thanks, Ana! I'm not so sure it's my internet, though. As I said, the download is listed as a JPEG before I even click on anything. If it is, though, a workaround would certainly make me happy. smile

Okay.....I downloaded the Raven and have played it for about an hour now. Is it just me.....or is this game boring?? Does it get better? I don't usually pay $25 for a game but the screenshots and reviews looked good.
Please tell me it gets better! sad

Hi UruKat,

It's subjective. grin I finished playing a couple of days ago. The story grabbed me, and a few dramatic events do take place on the train and at the next location, but the gameplay itself is fairly laidback. There's no real sense of urgency, except the fascination in seeing what happens next.

It's only the first part of a three-episode series, though -- and this episode ends on a humongous cliffhanger!

I didn't realize it was only the first episode. Guess I should have done a little more research before buying it. I hope the price includes the other episodes.....no way will I pay $25 for each one.
The game runs with a lag on my machine as well. It's probably because my laptop isn't new enough, but at least it does run it.
Thanks Rushes!

From Ana's first post:

The beautifully animated first chapter, The Eye of the Sphinx, can be purchased today with a season pass and a release discount of 10% for just EUR/USD 22,49; £16.79 (Standard Edition, regular price: EUR/USD 24,99; £20.99) and EUR/USD 26,99; £22.49 (Digital Deluxe Edition, regular price: EUR/USD 29,99; £24.99). This pass will also give access to chapters 2 and 3 as they become available on August 27th and September 24th respectively.

smile

Did you try turning down the graphics quality to Low in your Options menu? I had the same problem with lag, but that fixed it.

Thanks Rushes.....I feel better that it included each episode. I'll try lowering the graphics, that's a good idea.....I should have thought of that myself! urock

I have a steam account so I decided to download there. I see the price of $24.99 says, it includes all three episodes when they become available . If I am reading this correctly I only pay this price once for all three episodes. I hope I am reading this correctly.
