To everyone,

I forwarded your words of encouragement to the Team and be sure it had an impact. Making a game is a collective effort and more than thirty people were involved in this adventure. A hell of a team, believe me.

I have sent to MacDee a few more sound files to share with you. As soon I have a place to put it, I'll provide some more.

As long as the music CD is concerned, I am sorry but I don't have a clue as where to find it. I don't have a packaged copy myself. You'll understand that I can't just share the music with you like that (those Napster days are gone

Hi, Stephen,

Is Geoffrey Bateman computer literate? It would be wonderful if he could join our discussions, too! He has many fans! ;-)
Please let him know.

Thank you,

Yvonne

Nolalu: New Orleans would be an exceptional locale for an adventure game! Totally!

Stephen: Thank you for this exceptional, thought-provoking game. The perspective was unusual, to say the least. Very true that the yin-yang aspect of good-evil has a decidedly Eastern flavor. I particularly liked the technique of having the story revealed in little vignettes.

And I may just have to break down and to get that jazz CD!!!!!!

Hi Stephen, I have the fever to try the game now. I was just wondering if you can tell me where in the United States I can buy the dvd version of Faust? I have only seen it so far on the Cryo site and I'm not really sure how long it would take to ship from overseas or exactly how much it would cost with shipping. I would be much more comfortable buying it domestically if it is available. Thank you very much!

Here is a very importand info for all people who want to play Faust: DONT TURN OFF THE SUBTITLES!!! Otherwise the hint system will not work, because all hints will only be written, not spoken. If you turn off the subtitles, the hints will also disappear....

One source of the Faust CD is German Music Express www.musicexpress.com

Do a "search by CD/soundtrack/video title" for
Faust Experience
and a listing should appear.
Click the details link to get a picture of the cover.

German Music Express has much more reasonable shipping rates (4.95 per order) to the USA than most other European CD vendors. However it may take a while to get your CD. I've had them take anywhere between a couple of weeks to 2 months. It all depends on the availability of the CD.

Tower (in the USA) lists it as a special order
http://www.towerrecords.com/product.asp?pfid=1840065
But they charge more than German Music Express. You can see the track list there though.

Total was $24.64

Faust has been sitting on my shelf for 6 months now........My little P200 would not play it, but now since the BIG upgrade last week, please don't laugh, it was a free upgrade and that was all I could afford, to a P200MMX I can now load it up and see what all this Faust Fuss is all about.

I have been dieing to play this game and now with all the renewed interest here it is getting loaded up tonight! Especially since I finally finished ploughing my way through Dracula the Last Sanctuary tonight. Sorry folks didn't care much for that one, but that's a whole nuther story.

Stephen: Don't know if you ever checked out the game RING based on Wagner, but that is one of my all time favorites, so I am really looking forward to Faust.

To Space Quest Fan,

I checked and you can only get the DVD version from Cryo.
Sorry ;-)
The CDRom version is exactly the same though.

Very well expressed, as was the remainder of your e-mail.
