This is great! Dave Gilbert I really enjoy your games and hope you guys keep on doing what you're doing, free of outside influence, for a long time. Going to buy Gemini Rue right now.

I registered just to say thanks. I know this doesn't make me the best customer, but a sale on Gemini Rue was what I was waiting for.

Very cool, I will buy it right away. (Would have done it either way but this is a very nice offering.)

Just watched the Quick Look, this game looks really cool! I'm definitely going to get it now. Thanks duder.

Wow, that is awesome. I already bought it before this discount, but I totally bought it because of GB's Quick Look. Great game!

Missed the Quick Look when it was originally published so I went and watched it and I gotta say this games seems great, been a while since I played some point and clickin'.

Thank you for this discount!

Did anyone have to wait a little longer for their download link? I ordered it about 3 hours ago and the e-mail with the download link from WadjetEye hasn't shown up yet.

But really, very cool move! I already own the game though.

#117 Posted by ChickenPants (934 posts) -

Hope some of the staff have noticed this.

#118 Posted by Mars_Cleric (1595 posts) -

@WadjetEye: dude that's awesome. I was just thinking about buying it and now I'm definitely buying it

#119 Posted by Scrawnto (2461 posts) -

Oh man, I was holding off on purchasing this until I was done with the games I was playing already, but I bought it right away after seeing this. Thanks Dave!

#120 Posted by Lunar_Aura (2778 posts) -

I was waiting for a Steam sale to buy this after seeing the QuickLook.

Now I bought it on the discount. Thanks! I hope this can become a trend. :)

#121 Posted by Jadeskye (4368 posts) -

@rflx: i don't have a comeback for that. Too awesome.

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

Same here. Great game.

#123 Edited by WadjetEye (15 posts) -

Wow!  I go to sleep and this forum thread explodes. :)  This is very gratifying, guys.   Thanks so much!  To answer some of the common questions:
 
RE: Steam 
 
Their policy is not to give their reasons, presumably to not get into long conversations with defensive developers.  I can't say I blame them, although I can't help but wonder why they turned it down myself!  But, no biggie.  It means more direct sales for us. :)
 
RE: Mac
 
Right now, there is no Mac port.  The game was made using the AGS engine, which is rigidly PC only.  However, the engine just went open source and some people are trying to make a stable Mac port.  Once that happens, rest assured that Gemini Rue will be the first to make the jump.

Hi McWizardry.  Did your email ever come through?  A very common reason for this is when a customer uses a paypal account that has a different email address associated with it.  Drop me an email and let me know if you still haven't received it.
 
Aaand that's all I can say, really.  Thanks again, everyone.

Well worth it, I bought on release and it's awesome.

#125 Posted by Lunar_Aura (2778 posts) -

My first attempt (credit card) was not accepted for whatever reason. I just tried again now with PayPal.

If it doesn't work after that I give up. It shouldn't be this hard to make a PC game purchase regardless of game or discount. Sorry.

#126 Posted by DeeGee (2144 posts) -

I'd be really interested to know how much this thread boosted sales, if at all. Seems like a bunch of dudes are buying it, so I hope so!

Strange!  What sort of error did you get?  If you still want the game, drop me an email and I'll see if I can sort out what went wrong.
#128 Posted by MaFoLu (1859 posts) -

I'll have to buy this right now!

Was planning to get it after the Quicklook but I forgot about it.

Now, if only all developers would be as awesome as you, and give a discount after GB made a Quick Look of their game.

#129 Posted by daftdethmonkey (45 posts) -

This is what is great about Giant Bomb. I remember in the early days of the site when Jeff said that the idea was to ignore the games people don't care about, cover the games people are already interested in and expose people to games they should care about but don't yet. This is a perfect example.

If it hadn't been for the Quick Look I never would have even heard of this game, so it's good to see that simple coverage like that can make so much of a difference for a small game like Gemini Rue.

#130 Posted by Tesla (1938 posts) -

Awesome, I loved the QL and meant to buy this sooner. This just reminded me, thanks Dave!

#131 Posted by NovaDTH (179 posts) -

Bought this game at release and really can't stress how awesome it is. Add that on top of you doing this for the GB community. 
 
Everyone buy this game!

#132 Posted by Lake (127 posts) -

Enjoy my money while I enjoy your game.

Paypal worked. Time to have some fun =3

@WadjetEye: Thank you for making a fantastic, atmospheric game that must have taken balls to make. Balls that even Nintendo doesn't have. 
 
Your presumptuous attitude and balls are welcome any time brother :)
#135 Posted by onarum (2225 posts) -

This is really nice, thanks.

#136 Posted by jorbear (2517 posts) -

I will be buying this ASAP. From what I've seen, this game looks amazing.

#137 Posted by SSully (4266 posts) -

Well I am going to have to buy this right now. I already was interested in the game, but this extremely kind gesture sealed the deal. Thank you, I will keep a look out for any future games you make.

#138 Posted by reddin (418 posts) -

@WadjetEye: Consider your game bought!

But a shame it didn't get on Steam. I remember reading somewhere that it might be because the resolution was too low to allow for the steam overlay or something like that. But then I remembered that I own Ben There, Dan That! on Steam, and that runs at 320x240.

Steam works in mysterious ways I guess.

#139 Posted by Deusx (1910 posts) -

Wow this is really cool! I'm glad that your game got recognition from the GiantBomb crew and the community. I'll be buying that game right now! 

#140 Posted by mcwizardry (11 posts) -

@WadjetEye: Order went through successfully, just took a little longer to process. Thanks for replying !

#141 Posted by Rudeboy217 (1770 posts) -

That is really awesome of you, dude. Thanks a lot.

#142 Posted by Nux (2403 posts) -

Once I get payed I will be buying this. Thanks Dave this is very nice of you. I have been thinking of buying this ever since I saw the Quick Look and now I will.

#143 Posted by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

Totally buying this right now.
