In my opinion having purchased all of Daves games thus far this is is best game yet! This game is so much fun, and I never get in the position not knowing what to do next.

Is there a real possibility that the game WILL be released via retail box?

Lexxy, PlayFirst does release their popular games in boxed versions so there is a goodchance that this too will make it to store shelves. I will write them and see if they already have plans to do so and confirm.

I am playing this game as well and loving it to. The only problem I have is when I am not really sure what to do and I go talk to the same people and end up asking them the same questions over and over again. However, I am not usually stuck for very long so that raises high marks for the game!!

I played the demo and immediately bought the game for full price from Playfirst. I am really enjoying it. The hint system is great. The only problem I am having is being able to pick up the buttons. I see them glinting, but if I try to pick them up during a conversation,clicking on them just skips the dialogue. Sometimes if I wait until the dialogue ends, the scene changes and I miss the button. Oh well, still a great game. I played for 4 hours yesterday and am only about halfway through.

@dorish

When the scene changes, later you'll be able to get to those scenes again to get the buttons.
I actually managed to get all of them laugh

It was also cool to see the medals you could earn.
The only medal I didn't get, was the one fighting in the magic ring... seems one has to beat her the first time to get it smile

I finished this game but apparently didn't find everything I needed to because my medal and trophy case was not full. What a great motivation for me to play the game again and find all the things that are there. Scraps is very funny and I also enjoyed Lion and Tin Man. I really thought that Jack would be in it more but oh well.

I just finished Emerald City Confidential and had so much fun!
yay
I hope Dave wins an award for this game because his hard work really paid off. Congratulations Dave for a great game!

The storyline is great, and puzzles all were logical. The hints in your journal used as needed really helped me a few times. Well more than a few times!
lol

I love the voices of all the characters. I swear the Wiz of Oz sounds just like Danny Divito. I wonder if there is someone who can find out if this is true. Does anyone know for sure? think

I really loved the graphics and couldn't help wishing the other game he is working on would have the same vibrant graphics.

Playfirst and Dave have a winner here and I hope everyone will at least try the demo.

If you like a game with a great storyline, good use of inventory that is logical, beautiful graphics in a toon style, and of course the voices and music I think is spectacular. This game has everything I was looking for. I laughed aloud many times.

Oh Please Dave, I hope you make a sequel to Emerald City Confidential. One last thing, I feel I got my money's worth because it wasn't a short game. bravo

I highly recommend this game to everyone that likes a good adventure game that doesn't take itself too seriously and likes to laugh. thumbsup

Hi everyone! Just popped in to say hiya. I'm glad you all are enjoying/did enjoy the game! It was a lot of fun to work on. Definitely the biggest game I've ever made!

Sherryah - the actor who played the Wizard is definitely not Danny DeVito. smile It's funny, because while we were rehearsing I noted that he was starting to sound like Danny DeVito, and I told him that it really worked. The same actor also played Toto. smile

the lion reminded me of my lazy cat or is that naughty cat when I catch her laying on things she shouldn't. She has that same look that the lion had with his tone like "really, I really shouldn't be doing this? Oh well I guess I'll do it anyway!!" I thought all the characters were funny and I really did feel like I got my money out of the game because it took me awhile to finish it. A sequel would be great but even if there isn't one the game was a good stand alone.

Thanks Dave,for letting me know that wasn't Danny Divito he sure did a great impersonation of the actors voice. thumbsup

Also I thought I recognized the voice of Joey the ghost can't remember which character now. Am I right on that? think

Will we see more of the same kind of graphics in your upcoming games? I applaud all of people who did the voices, each one was unique. There is no way you could have improved the game I gave it 5 stars at Gamezebo. bravo

Hi Sherryah. Yep! Abe (Joey) did the voices of Jack Pumpkinhead, the Wogglebug, and Ruggedo. It was great fun working with him on something different.

I'm not sure you'll be seeing these types of graphics in any of the upcoming Blackwell games. I can't really afford it. But who knows? Maybe I'll be able to one day. :-D

I hope this will be a best seller for you, and you will be able to afford the same kind of graphics for Blackwell. But even if you don't whatever game you create I will buy. I have all your games and have never been disappointed yet. Keep up the great work. bravo

Dave, is there any chance you will have a sequel to Emerald City? I know its just been released but I figured I would ask
anyway.

A sequel is a possibility, but it's too early to say yet. It's up to PlayFirst. smile

Hi Dave! I really like this game! I think it's great. But, I have a problem at Woot's arena. I am stuck there. I did all that was needed but I can't complete the quest "Defeat Mombi In The Ring". Unfortunately, I don't have the time to play the game from the beginning. Please do something with the bug frown

Other people have this problem too :

I don't understand I had no problem with fighting Mombi. In fact that was one of my favorite parts of the game. It was so funny! I hope for those who are having a glitch here it will be fixed so you can continue to enjoy the game.
