Thanks, Becky! smile Does anyone know if the bugs have been taken care of in Paradise? I really want to try this game, but have avoided it because if what I've read about this issue.

Hey Venus

I believe they took care of everything in the Jewel Cased DVD re-release by VIVA MEDIA but don't know if that is the one that is offered here.

Yes right from Viva Media HERE
I had seen them before at Target stores but don't know if they still carry it.

Thanks Becky. The Tales of Bingwood reminds me of a Kings Quest game.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

Yes, it's a blast from the past with graphics that are reminiscent of earlier adventures, some clever puzzles and good writing. You can find out more here.

Thank you Becky. The link you posted even lets you download a demo. I don't think that any of us lucky Gameboomers members could ever thank you and all the other great moderators on this site for all you do for us but I just wanted to make sure you knew just how much I appreciate all you do and how lucky I feel to be a member of this site. The fact that a site this awesome is also free is a true blessing. thanks

Can anyone tell me anything about Viva Media? I can't seem to find any information about them.

For example, with regards to Paradise, are the distributor for the game for Benoit Sokal? And who fixed the "bugs?" BTW - I never had any problems when I played the original game.

Thanks in advance.

Ana,

Thanks for the link!

I did go there before posting my message, and read its "about us" but didn't learn anything.

I'm always a little leery about purchasing republished games from a company I don't know, so I was just wondering if anyone did know anything about them.

CES -- Viva is an established publisher. They often publish educational and edutainment games, though they do occasionally branch out into adventure games -- their most recent adventure game was Perry Rhodan.

They also do jewel case versions of certain older adventure games, many of which can be purchased at Target.
