The German release happened today, but according to the below link, it's possible to download the game from Amazon Germany and that the German version of the game has an English-language option. So, for the truly impatient among us, it would appear that if you are willing to spend fifty dollars, this would be a way for you to play the game now.

I think I will wait and see other comments about the game first, but it certainly is tempting. smile

Well i have seen - saying 5.6 GB so id expect that if you are downloading it. That btw is the iso so if a direct2drive just does the files and not in a image it maybe more.

Is the speech English though? Or is it just English subtitle in the German release?

Speech is in English. Which begs the quesion, if the English version is available why have Mamba delayed it.

Following what you are saying, so the game is actually complete. I also ask why the delay for so long?

Regional publisher is not setup for other countries i would guess. When they have a publisher for other regions it will be then become available.

Also i would hazard a guess but other regions might have different release dates which will maximise their profits so they pick their release times according to highest demand for said genres.

Yes the game is complete. You are given the option to play either the German or English version (on the config screen) I think.

They had a release date of October and changed it. I would have thought the run up to xmas was the premium time not after the new year when people are spent up. They must have also known that dtp were releasing the English version now and that that will be a hammer blow to their profit because that version will have been pirated for three months. Something strange certainly going on. If you had wanted to sabatage your product you couldnt have done a better job than mamba seem to have done.

Anyone know which button you press for the download version on Amazon.de? Dont speak german but I fancy taking the plunge and giving it a go.

Like i said they probably only have a publishing licence for germany as of this time and they are still arranging a publisher for UK and other regions. I agree it would have been a good time now for selling the game in as many regions as possible now due to xmas but they could probably only arrange to sell it in germany and other countries are in talks with publishers for others.

Do not know german sry mj2c. frown Tho possibly use google translator to convert the site to english?

Yes, a google translator might help. I do see that one of those buttons on the righthand side of the Amazon page has the words "online," making me think that might be the selection for the download, but I'm not sure either.

Im sure someone can do a quick guide how to buy and download in step by step for you shortly. Best if u can wait for a person who has done it to tell you how to do it correctly as to avoid doing something wrong.

They already have publishers - Lace Mamba. DTP are the publishers in Germany though.

Yes I tried using a translater but the buttons dont get translated - they must be just bitmaps.

Very surreal thread, considering there is no digital download available on German Amazon. Not before the official release.

You may be right; I may have misunderstood what someone was saying over on the AdventureGamers forum. My apologies to all if this is indeed the case. The boxed game has been officially released in Germany, though, as someone I know who lives in Germany has bought the game from a shop in the last 24 hours.

Yes it certainly seems to have been released before the official date (if the 12th is the official date). There are people over on the dtp's own forums on chapter 6!!! And given it's the English side of their forum I assume they are playing the English version.

The boxed game is also on ***amazon.de***.
Auf Lager means In Stock.

Unfortunately it is 35.99 Euros and would be ***another 14 Euros to ship to the US***.
So that is 49.99 Euros.
In US dollars that would be $68.68 + whatever money conversion fees
(according to ***Oanda's currency converter***).
Very expensive game.

Ordering from Germany is definitely very pricey. I probably would have been able and crazy enough to do it last year, but it is just too expensive for me now. sad I don't understand why they don't just release the English version now, since it is obviously ready. duh

Looks like I'm going to have to wait until February. Not happy about it, but I will just have to keep repeating over and over to myself that it is only three months. lol
