Hello! I'm Dave Gilbert, of Wadjet Eye Games and publisher of Gemini Rue. A few months ago, Gemini Rue was given a quick look by the kind folks on this site. The feature sent a huge influx of traffic our way and we gained a lot of new fans in the process. We are so happy that so many of you guys enjoyed our game, and we always felt a bit bad that we never reached out to thank you sooner. Hopefully later is better than never.

We wanted to offer an exclusive discount coupon to Giant Bomb for those of you who haven't played it yet. From now until June 26th, anyone using the code "RUEBOMB" will receive 25% off the purchase price. You can buy the game off of our website at http://www.wadjeteyegames.com. It will not be available on Steam, unfortunately.

Anyway, I hope this isn't presumptuous of me. Thanks again!

-Dave

This guy is legit, just tried it. Thanks!

You might want to get in touch with the giantbomb dudes themselves, they could make a news post about it or something to raise awareness.

Aww man, I've already bought *and* played it.  But I don't regret paying full price.  It was very much worth it.

Wow, what an awesome gesture!

#26 Posted by PXAbstraction (352 posts) -

Very awesome gesture. I wish I could buy it but it doesn't run on the laptop I would be playing it on (just get a black screen). I posted a thread in your support forums but no one was able to figure it out. :( I might try it again though as it really looks like something I'd enjoy.

#27 Posted by KaosAngel (13764 posts) -

Steam support and OSX?

#28 Posted by zyn (2591 posts) -

Awesome!

#29 Posted by Satsugai (52 posts) -

Your discount has been taken advantage of, sir.

Are you running on a Win7 laptop, by any chance?  I'm not sure which post was yours, but the "hanging on startup" thing is a common problem with Win7 laptops and we've managed to finagle a solution right here.The answer was verrry obscure - it has to do with the battery settings.  Check it out and see if you can get the demo to run.

We submitted the game to them, but they decided it wasn't right for their audience.  So it will only be available on our website for the time being.  Sorry!
#43 Posted by Irvandus (2894 posts) -

Will buy

#44 Posted by SomethingClever (423 posts) -

I thought the game looked pretty good but when I watched that Quick Look my computer was an ancient piece of garbage. I have since built myself a much nicer machine that can actually play games. Will definitely go buy this right now.

#45 Posted by SavUK (79 posts) -

Purchased. Thank you.

#46 Posted by Brodehouse (10134 posts) -

You got yourself a deal there, crazily named company.
