WOW, fellow Boomers,
That trailer looks so awesome. I went to the Steam store and checked it out. Unfortunately for ME, it requires 8 gigs of ram,but my computer has only 6, so I have to let this one go. Too bad because I'm a real MYSTAHOLIC. Had the same problem with "Obduction", which I couldn't purchase, either. at least "The Eyes Of Ara" is working well for me, although some of the puzzles are extremely difficult.
HAPPY GAMING!
Sandy

I think I am well past the mid point. This game is gigantic and so amazing. The quality makes me think that the best way to describe it is what Obduction could of been in an alternate universe.

This game is just amazing, definitely my most enjoyable game of the year. My viewers played along with me, and we turned this solo adventure into a co-op experience... we are having so much fun.
Obduction can't even compared to this game... Graphics, sound, music, puzzles, all top notch, and woven together beautifully into this masterpiece. I can't recommend this highly enough...

I backed this game on Kickstarter and have not got any notification that it is available. I did purchased the level that gives you a boxed version, but usually that also gets you a download too. think

I checked into my Kickstarter account - someone from California went in and changed my password the beginning of December.I notified them. Not sure what to do now.

Oh dear. How do you know that someone from California changed your password? Did you get an email? So you are locked out of Kickstarter now since you don't have the password?

False alarm, sorted it out. Still do not know why I did not get notification about Quern, though.

I have just finished Quern and I have to say this game is fantastic. Best game of the year and the best to come out in many years IMO and it was all created and developed by four young men whos average age is 24. Remarkable workmanship, quality of play, beauty and the integrated conundrums and puzzles rival the big developers who have tons more experience. Two main characters that have the professional voice acting that we all love in our games and they were cast perfectly. I know you will agree when you here the name of one voice actor...none other than Kate Walker herself, Sharon Mann. The other actor Caleb Merrick voice was perfect. There is not a lot of talking but with these two voices it just improved on an already great experience. I am pretty tough on rating games and rarely ever give any game an A but Quern is a solid A in my book. I would have given it an A+ which I have never given, if it weren't for one puzzle in the game. I had well over 30 hours of great game play. If you are a lover of First Person Adventures and especially the likes of the Myst series then run out, don't walk, and get Quern you won't be disappointed. One thing I would like to note for you is make sure your computer meets at least the minimum requirements but my recommendation is for it to be higher than the minimum. I don't think this game will play well on Laptops.

Thank you for the review. I am so excited to have this game to look forward to, though I may not be able to play it until I get a new computer. As it stands, I am getting a DVD, not a download, so I have to wait until I get the game delivered.

Here is what one of the developers said in the Steam Forum when asked the question of releasing on GOG...

We are in contact with them, hopefully they will like the game and the release can happen soon.

Sadly, GoG turns down the majority of requests with some lame excuse or the other. I hear from many developers time and again that they have been turned away even though the game has positive reviews. I don't really understand it.
