Hey everyone! (What do you guys call yourselves? Bombinations? Giant bombers?)
I saw this thread via Google Alert. I just wanted to hop on and say thank you. This community was the very first to give us some major mainstream attention back when we were trying to get on Steam the first time around. Hopefully we can officially prove ourselves once and for all. Thanks again!
So, the sale is over. A bunch of you asked to see a chart that shows how well the offer impacted sales. While I don't like to give exact sales numbers, I see no problem with showing you a "before and after" line graph that starts from the beginning of the month:
As you can see, the sale gave us a nice shot in the arm. Thanks so much to everyone who took part!
Ran just peachy with my laptop Win7 x64 using DirectDraw 5. I can't seem to get Direct3D 9 to work under any setting combination but oh well.
Oh yeah. That's because the game uses a plugin to create those lovely rain effects, and the plugin is not compatible with Direct3D. Normally we would have removed the Direct3D option, but we used a third party engine (AGS) to make the game and the configuration screen is set in stone. So it's not a bug or a problem with your computer. It's a feature!
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:
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. :)
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.
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.
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.
