We are receiving email from players about old version support and about troubles to run game on old hardware. Few words - You still can play it! Let me explain some moments.

Steam have 3 versions of the game (you can switch it in the game preferences):
- Default - Modern stable version for everyone.
- Legacy - The old original game released in 2011. Use it on old hardware.
- Beta - New version of release candidate.

Few words about plans:
- We plan to add better support for fullscreen mode.
- We'll add image smooth algorithm for big screens.
- We'll add achievements and cards.

Suggestions!?

Best,
Colibris.

Linux beta version is available. It's first public linux version. Some minor bugs can be expected. You need last version of Steam client to run the game on linux. You can update Steam client manually from menu.

Try the game and leave your comments here about your experience with linux version.

Cheers,

What is Joey Mallone's favourite news station? All Jazz-era.

John’s at GDC, so when I was looking for a comment on The Blackwell Epiphany trailer, I thrust the RPS Truthdaphone underneath Adam’s nose, demanding to know if he was excited. He responded with: “I love the headbutt on the cop. Who says point and click games aren’t bad-ass?” Adam is from Manchester.

The conclusion to the venerable adventure series about a medium solving spiritual problems with the help of a Jazz-era ghost. Naughty-donkey trailer beckons. … [visit site to read more]
