I downloaded mine from GOG at 3 am this morning before I went to work, and it was waiting for me when I got home. happydance They've done a fantastic job with it. I love the decorative border on the sides. Makes it a lot more interesting than just looking at black bars. thumbsup The lighting, new characters and music are all fantastic.

I did run into one bug. It crashed on me right after the first year transition scene, right before the Rubacava chapter. I went back to test it again, and the same thing happened. Luckily, if I skip the scene, I can bypass the issue. So for now, I just save, watch the scene, then reload and skip it. lol It's a pain, and hopefully they'll be a patch for it later, but it's no big deal. Other than that, I'm loving it so far. praise

@Laura, I make sure to have Glottis sing that song every time I play. grin

I'm loving it. Believe it or not,I'm finding it harder as a point and click game.
I've played the original a dozen times. Ok I'm off to find my old walkthrough.

PS....Venus What new characters are you talking about ?

Hey Cathy, I had to go back and re-read my comment. lol I meant "new character models," but clearly my proofreading skills were lacking in that post. lol Really, I don't know whether they're actually new character models, or just polished versions of the old ones, but either way, they look great. There are no new characters. Sorry about the confusion. smile

I see from Cathy's post that the game is now 'point and click' driven. I was put off from buying this game as I recalled the original game to be more or less driven by the keyboard. Can a Boomer please confirm that it is now 'point and click' because, if it is I will go and by it. Thanks wave thumbsup

I actually prefer the original keyboard control. It gives the game a bit more personality, directly controlling Manny while keeping tabs on his head direction for hotspots... And those extra icons are distracting to me...

You can use the keyboard if you like, everyone can choose how they like to play.

I'm doing the happy dance! Manny isn't "pinball machining" around and I can concentrate on the game, not which key to use. I especially like the inventory - it actually works!

It's awesome Drac, what a great trip back in time. So much better with the new controls and I'm laughing my way through.

I was cracking up at the the balloon dude with his off-color comments! If you don't pay attention to all the dialogue, you will miss some great stuff.
