Susan, yes, this is going to be a loooong download, but I feel confident that it will be worth it. My connection is far from the speediest and unless it was for Gabriel Knight, Tex Murphy, or Nancy Drew, I probably wouldn't even attempt it. grin

Have fun choosing your free game. wave

It's going to take several hours for me to download.
I probably won't finish today.
It will probably take quite a while to install too.

I've got mine downloading. I never thought I'd get to play another Tex Murphy game. This is sooooo wonderful! It will be tomorrow before it's all downloaded, but what are you gonna do? My ISP is terribly slow.

I had the same problem with GOG not showing that it was ready to download, Marian. I took your advise and went to Support, then "solutions", clicked on the game on the support page, and it worked and is downloading at this very moment. WOW! 15.5 GB. That's the LARGEST file I have EVER downloaded. Thanks for your tip that got me to this point.

Well, I certainly learned my lesson.

I hope you get a GOG code for the game soon, Traveler.
It's kind of deceptive on the ***Kickstarter page*** that they mention downloads of the older games from GOG as rewards for different tiers, but not of the new one.

Seems to be a difference of opinion on whether GOG keys will be sent

I'm very happy to hear that my suggestion worked for you, Sandy. smile

Have fun, Debra. Maybe one of us can sit here and write the Great American Novel while it downloads....then again, maybe not. grin

Richard, click on the GOG link that I posted and then look down towards the middle of the page on the left; you will see where it says "Solution," and then click on the link below that. wave

I got my key yesterday for backing the Kickstarter but they are sending them out as quickly as they can if you haven't received them yet.

Just downloaded the game from stm. when I play the game the movement isn't smooth. When I move the curser from left to right it isn't smooth. Just put in a new video card. Ovet three hundred dollard should be a good one. Power supply is 875. Would the one from GOG be better.

I wouldn't think that whether you got the game from GOG or from Steam would make a difference (unless the Steam client affects game performance, and as far as I know, it does not). Why don't you ask over in Glitches? Maybe someone over there can give you some advice, Richard.

I doubt it would make a difference, the requirements are the same.

Well I certainly don't think the Steam version is DRM free...it can't be. I used my backer key and the download was only about 10MB's not the 13 GB's that I though the game was. Didn't take but 15 minutes to download. I can start the game but its through Steam. Can't find it anywhere on my computer either so I am guessing it can't be played without Steam. May be wrong but I see no way to burn my own disk if I can't find it...LOL

I can't speak to that Grey. My GOG version has twelve files with 2-12 being 1.5 gigs each. It is taking me fifteen minutes per 1.5 gig file to download. The good news is there are only two to go.

Did you buy the GOG version or use a backer key?

greyfuss,

the download is 16gb, download again.

the game is DRM free as when developers put games on steam they select their security options & big finish didn't select DRM.

the game can be downloaded & then you can uninstall the steam software if you feel like it. You can even just copy the folder from the steam apps/common folder & install on another machine without requiring steam.

if any backers here are wondering why they didn't get GOG codes its because GOG couldn't supply them to big finish so they received them all from steam. Big finish wanted the backers all to have their keys at release time so the couldn't wait for GOG to find the time.

I will try that Plumgas, thanks. Wonder why I can still start the game though?

Well, Tesla Effect is already in my Steam Library and shows that I have played it for a minute and I see no way to redownload the game. Too bad. I sure hope my boxed copy doesn't have DRM when it comes.
