I was just over @ Amazon.com surfing and came across The Raven, clicked on it and it shows it as a retail game and it confused me,. Correct me if I am wrong but all other sites, including Steam. shows it as a download. I would so love to have a retail box but with it having three release dates how can it be contained in a solo retail box?

The 3 parts have already been released so they could easily sell it as one game (which it is).

Hi there, I bought the game from Amazon UK on disc and it is all 3 parts, so I guess it should be the same in the US. luck

Monbron,

Thanks for the update. I will hurry over now and purchase the game. I have been wanting to play this game ever since I saw the first promo.

Did I read somewhere a few days
ago that The Raven was being sold
on disc? I wasn't able to check
this out at the time.

Am I mistaken, guys?

Ana, you can move me If I'm in
the wrong place.

Hi Aser, I moved your note to this thread - this provides some information in regards to your question - Amazon is selling the game in a box. smile

Hi monbron, did you buy the game from Amazon US? I got mine from Amazon.co.uk, and I noticed that in the Digital Deluxe content, only chapter 1 of the storybook exists... Is it the same in the US release?
I wonder if the two releases are identical.

Hi SirGraham, good job I noticed your post!! No I got mine from Amazon UK, am looking at the box and I don't see anything about Digital deluxe, it just says The Adventure Company, Nordic games division. However I do remember that you have to play each chapter before the next one appears in 'New Game'. Hope this helps. think

I remember that too, monbron, and thought it was a really weird way of getting to the next chapter woozy
Thoroughly enjoyed the game though laugh

Hi monbron, good job indeed! smile

Ok if you got it from Amazon.co.uk then we have the same thing, because there's only one PC version available there.

However, in my game, all three chapters are available for play when I press New Game, they're completely independent (I just checked).

Anyway, I wasn't talking about the game itself, but about the PDF "storybook" that the game installation puts on your hardrive. Perhaps you missed it and you don't know that you actually have the Digital Deluxe edition? blush
It came as a very good surprise to me as well, since I thought the Digital Deluxe is a Steam-exclusive, and indeed the game box and manual don't say anything about this.
This bonus content can be found in "\Program Files (x86)\Nordic Games\The Raven\DigitalDeluxe" (at least on my machine).

Also, don't you see the game's Launcher when you start it each time? I see this:

http://imageshack.com/a/img713/7205/20n6.jpg

Look on the middle-right - there's a button saying "Show digital deluxe content" right there smile

So, do you also have only chapter 1 of the storybook?

By the way, if you do have the Launcher, is it like mine, with the weird announcement about the release of chapter 3? I find it weird that it appears in a DRM-free retail game... I guess it's a leftover from Steam or something, since it's completely irrelevant laugh

Also, my Launcher looks for updates each time I start the game but never finds any :\ I really hope the game is already updated on the disc and not buggy like the original Steam release eek
I'll find out as I continue playing.

Hi SirGraham, Yes I have exactly the same as you including the Launcher and Digital Deluxe content, I have had no problems with the next games being ready when I finish the last, the only problem I have had was with the lock pick puzzle which drove me insane but with Gameboomers usual excellent service I received a save game and carried on and I am nearly finished. It reminds me of a Hercule Poirot game. So I hope you enjoy it - Good Luck taz

Hi All,
I recieved my Raven today from Amazon. On the back of the case is this notice! Product offered subject to your acceptance of the Steam Subscriber Agrement ("SSA). You must activate this product via the internet by registering for a Steam account and accepting the SSA. (ect) If you do not agress with the provisions of the SSA ;you should return this game unopened to your retailer in accordance with their return policy.
What is up? I agree not to copy ect and all of that but to have to join Steam!

What do you think?

THere are other disk games that require Steam as well. Usually you can find it in the reviews on Amazon or description before purchasing. Sorry you don't like it.
