So, is this canon?

Finally started getting into Lost and I also picked up a copy of this game. I fully intend to play it either way, but does anyone know if the writers of the show consider this canon in any way, shape or form?

I don't think so.

A PC game that won't sell more than 50,000 copies? No.

Sold more than that

It came out on the PS3 and 360 too.  It wasn't justa pc game, in fact I didn't even know there was a pc version.

The game is considered semi-canon. It was based on canon sources and tries to fit in fairly well with the TV show (though there are some continuity errors that you'd probably never notice). The problem is the twist ending which I wouldn't give away, but in light of the newer episodes to happen since the game was developed, you wouldn't be able to fit the game ending into the established canon.

No its not Cannon. it was basically a throw away cash in. Which is a shame, given the high caliber the show is.

Just finished the game, it was a 3 hour block of quality entertainment. Well, it was good to someone who really enjoys Lost, anyway. I'd say it's semi-cannon, it doesn't contradict any of the events that occur in the show, so why not?
