Hi, Marian!

Thanks for the heads up. Unless I've been living under a rock, this is quite the surprise because, even though I've seen the promos, I didn't realize it would be released this soon laugh. The demo is installing right now, and fingers crossed for a good sale this weekend.

The promos started around two or three weeks ago, and happily it meant that the release of the game was imminent. smile

Played the demo for about an hour; and bought the full version. It's a good game, as all the MCF games have been.

One complaint; I cannot use the full-screen option because it constantly flashes. Running it windowed cures the flashing, which probably happens because I have not installed a fancy video card. Several other games have exhibited this problem.

You might want to ask about that flashing-screen problem over in Glitches, Tally Ho. Most Big Fish games don't require a fancy video card.

I have what would be considered a low-end video card and not once has any Big Fish game given me a graphical problem like the one you describe.

The developer's name is "Grandma Studios." Makes us feel old. Are their games good (here is a list)?

I like their games, GamingPhreak, and I have played a great many of them. For me, I find them to be quite consistent in their quality. Having said that, you would be better off trying a demo and seeing for yourself. What people like and don't like can be quite subjective. smile
