Does this game have a CE version?

There is a Steam thread here where the developer states that the Collector's Edition includes a strategy guide as well as bonuses. I don't know if the Big Fish version has these items - someone else would have to tell us that. If it does, then the Big Fish release is the Collector's Edition. I do know that it contains all five episodes of the game.

The only one I can find on Big Fish is the one that is linked to in the 1st post in this thread. It doesn't say CE, and it's only $6.99 for members, which is their normal SE price. The reason I'm asking is because there is a CE BOGO going on now at Big Fish.

My GUESS is that since the game is not called a CE, it is not part of that sale then.

It wouldn't be part of the CE sale, no.

This game is fantastic. I am so involved in exploring, fiddling with things, solving puzzles. So much like a "real" Adventure game from years ago.

Does anyone know how to silence the monotonous sound track that bangs away while you work every puzzle? There aren't separate Menu choices for the various aspects of the game (voices, music, background...) Currently, I am having to dial down my speakers to Zero every time I start a puzzle in order to escape that tense music that adds stress to the sequence (plus, the musical theme lingers in the mind like a nagging musical earworm).

If there aren't any slider bars for music, voices, etc., then I don't know.

Hi Reenie,
Agree 100% on the horrid music during the puzzles! I did the same thing in turning off the sound each time I started a puzzle. Also, searched the web for a how to mute that sound, but couldn't fine anything.

Finished the game and truly enjoyed it, hints available even though it wasn't called a CE game. To bad there isn't a sequel. I would buy it in a minute.
Have you finished it Reenie?

No, I have the last Chapter to go before I'm finished. But I haven't been back because of that "earworm" music during the puzzles. It just isn't worth it to me. Not sure I will bother to finish it. Too bad, because I really loved having a game that felt more like a good Adventure game!

Can you lower your computer system volume at all? I have a volume control in my task bar that works to lower game volume (at least the few times I've tried it).

Oh, yes, I do have a volume control on my computer, OldBroad. I had been turning it all the way down for each puzzle, then turning it back up again. The thing is, the puzzles are very frequent, and I'm getting irritated by having to roll the knob down and then back up for every puzzle. There are too many other great games out there to play. I don't feel compelled to stay with one that becomes more annoying than fun.

Gotcha! And sorry. I know you had already mentioned your speaker volume control.
