This game is only available so far from the G2 shop, which apparently doesn't ship to the U.S. I'm curious to know if any of our European gamers are playing it, and what they think of it so far.

I tried ordering this game from G2 about a month ago. After numerous emails to G2, Majestic Studios, and Tim Croucher I finally cancelled the order ( although I still have not received confirmation of this), since communication is very poor to say the least. I was never told they could not ship to the US, although my shipping info was included in each email. Its too bad the publisher has so little interest in customer relations, and I feel the developers have no input into the process. I was very disappointed in the whole transaction. I just hope I get my money back at this point.

Hi Becky,
I have been playing the game!!, I got a copy from G2....at last. Been waiting ages for it!

It is a shame the publisher is having problems releasing this as the game itself is brilliant even though I am stuck hahahahahaa!!

I do hope you get the chance to play it soon......

Great site by the way!

In response to my post concerning the problems I have had in dealing with G2 and obtaining Limbo of the Lost, Majestic Studios has graciously offered to send me one of their own copies (of which they only have 3), free of charge.
I explained to Steve that it was the publisher's lack of communication I was upset about, I think the developers are trying their best.
I have heard great things about the game, I hope they can get it out there as soon as possible.
Thanks to Majestic Studios!!

Dyl'smom -- that's fantastic. I hope the developer will autograph it for you. laugh

Hi All,
Well just an update really as I do not wish to spoil it for anyone, but I have to say the Game is a breath of fresh Adventure air in these times of poor and stagnent adventure titles. This is a 100% traditional adventure game and so much thought has gone into every part of it, from the levels to the characters to the puzzles.It really stays with you too even after you have torn yourself away from playing it hahahahahahaha. praiseI have played many games but rarely felt for the main character or the other characters, William Nilmates gets my vote for NPC of the year! hahahahaha praise

G2 if your reading this.............sort out your publishing probs!!! the Adventure world needs to play this game! thumbsup

INFERNO - Are you going to do a full review, seeing as you did the preview?? if so please do not let anything out of the bag!

This is an Adventure game that should not be spoilt by anyone prior to playing it. bravo bravo

FABLE -- I would disagree strongly with your characterization of the current crop of adventure games. Also, the GameBoomers reviewers are professionals and do everything within their power not to spoil any part of the plot/puzzles when they write.

Sorry Becky I did not mean the current crop, I was talking generally regarding adventure games, I have played many and there are say a dozen that are great but quite a lot that are very samey, look at the games from ADVENTURE COMPANY they all use the same formula apart from a few.

I know you do not spoil adventure games with your reviews, it's just that there is alot in this game and a full review could spoil some suprises, I am sure INFERNO would agree.

I am mostly talking about full game reviews that you read on the web that in my opinion spoil some suprises, look at THE WITCHER, or OBLIVION reviews and you will see what I mean.

Again sorry did not mean to offend anyone.
oops

This is a huge game.

Inferno - You did not mention if you were going to do a full review of it?

Hope so, so all the forum can get a taste of this great title.
