I just stumbled across Lost Chronicles of Zerzura on Amazon (CD format) available for pre-order. Release date shown is Oct. 30! I'm not sure if this has been mentioned already, but it's a happy discovery if the release date is real.

The Viva version selling out of the Amazon store would be in English. Amazon isn't always the most accurate in terms of release dates, though.

I am waiting for confirmation from Viva.

There is no definitive release date yet per the publisher, so please take the Amazon date with a grain of salt. When there is a date, I will be putting up an official press release to announce it.

Thanks for checking, Ana. I wonder how Amazon came up with Oct. 30? In any case, they got my order and I'm hoping it won't slip too much.

When I first saw the offering it was listed as a CD ROM, but now they're showing it as a DVD, which makes more sense.

Amazon likes to jump the gun on dates, sometimes they are right and other times they can be way off. We shall see how close they are. grin

Just following up on this thread: Amazon says they have shipped my order of this game. Unfortunately, they now say its temporarily out of stock. I think the game download is available now on Gamestop's download website, though I've never used it.

Looks like you can download it from Amazon now too.

Great news! Thanks for the info, and welcome to Gameboomers, tonyc0818.

I think I'll hold out for the disk version to come in again and pick it up as soon as it arrives. Glad to know the game is available, as I've been waiting to play it. thumbsup

A very tough time for a New York area publisher to be releasing a disk verison. Hope everything is okay at Viva. Good to know that the downloads are currently available.

Hey,

I got my pre-ordered copy today and it was mailed from Lexington, Kentucky, so there may not be any problem ordering a disk version from Amazon for those of you who want it in a box.

What a great-great game. Can't stop playing it.
I downloaded it from Amazon. Worth every penny. Got stuck on a few places but figured it out.

Still waiting for the download to complete. Amazon is slow on this one, at least for me, estimated to take over 8 hours total for 3.33GB

Re: Lost Chronicles of Zerzura pre-order on Amazon: releasing Oct 30. - 11/03/12 06:33 PM

Big download it took me about 2 hrs. I think I'm stuck in the bilge to Gil.

Wonder why mine is taking so long, I do have high speed cable. I wonder if it because I use FireFox

This link has a demo available for download, and although the page is in English, the demo appears to be in German. At least the installation setup screens were in German. I aborted the installation because I don't understand German. Does anybody know if there is an English demo available, or if this demo, after it's installed will have English gameplay options?

Re: Lost Chronicles of Zerzura pre-order on Amazon: releasing Oct 30. - 11/07/12 09:23 AM

After finishing the game here are one plus and one minus thoughts on Zerzura

+ 1. The game is quite long
- 2. The game is is a pixel hunt with try everything on everything inventory.

Re: Lost Chronicles of Zerzura pre-order on Amazon: releasing Oct 30. - 11/07/12 09:54 AM

I enjoyed the game and I thought that it was very MacGyverish. Maybe it is my scientific background that made it logical to me. smile

Pressing the space bar shows all hotspots.

I finished it also.

I'm following the German WT. I have to translate it and it's hard to read it in english. It's a nice game and quite long.

I wish I would have ordered when ergggo first posted like I meant to. Now I'm stuck waiting (not that it will get played right away anyway but...)
