I will be spending my credits with companies like BoomZap (today's TGT) who do dual releases. They are sending the message that they respect all their game players.


Amen to that. BF has seriously alienated mac users by not updating us on this. I'm actually considering canceling my membership.

Yeah, I thought as much...no news. As long as it takes to release this game, I suggest we Mac users take just as long before buying. That seems fair.

Good idea.

I feel like you guys would stop getting so much s**t if you would just say SOMETHING. The fact that you are blatantly ignoring anything to do with this is the MOST frustrating part. A nice drop in saying "Oh hey, we're making progress" would be a little nice. But this blatancy is infuriating, and REALLY bad with the whole "customer relations" thing.

i torture myself all the time by 'peeking' whats new on the PC section. It even more hurts when i saw Escape from Ravenhearst doesnt even exist anymore in the top 10 game of the week. (while here we are Mac users being kept in a news-proof room, unable to play it).
It's been months.
The season is changing.
No news still.

Is it EVER going to come out?

Honestly, if this is what "top priority" means, I would never ask BFG to take care of anything really important. Or do they have more categories? Are Deluxe Editions an "over the top" priority?

LOL!


It's now been eleven weeks and no word. Some "top priority" we've turned out to be.

Going on 3 months and still nothing. And someone mentioned another site on this and a BF moderator didn't take that post down so that tells me that no one from BF is reading these posts. and ... btw is anyone else finding that as they go on the BF site in the mac games that there is nothing in the new games that is at all interesting. There are like four games I would like to see on BF that are only PC including EFR that I am waiting for.

It seems to always be this way for Mac users on this site. I've lost track of the number of threads I've gone to where people are wondering when/if this or that game is going to be released for Mac and BFG just doesn't respond or acknowledge them at all. I realize that the majority of their customers are PC users but it often seems like they just don't care at all about the Mac users. If it's so much trouble to just give us a quick update once in awhile, why do they even bother carrying games for Mac in the first place???

To answer your question, they surely must have seen a profit in expanding their Mac offerings. Before the end of 2009, there was virtually no Mac presence here, now we have equal billing with the PC side. Up until a year ago, the Mac Forum was just a thread in Chit Chat Corner; now we have our own forum. So we can't say BFG has not paid attention to Mac users.

It's frustrating to wait for games, but BFG does not have to share the whys and hows of their dealings with developers with us. For the most part, it's not like the Mac versions exist elsewhere. If they do, we are free to purchase them.

In the case of this game, they are the developer. You might think they would take enough pride in this game itself, not just in the profits from sales, to want to get it out for Mac. But the killer was the hoopla surrounding EFR, the speculation thread, the party, the strong indication this would be a dual release, then bam, it didn't happen. Problems with the Mac version at the midnight hour -- uh huh, sure. Even if that was really the case, little was said to acknowledge how we felt. Then it was "Top Priority" -- that was 3 months ago. Two months ago we got the same lip service and since then nothing.

So, it's not even the game. It's how we were duped -- er, treated.

Adding to the frustration is how BFG seems to have changed. I became a customer here because I was so impressed with the quality of their Studios games compared to others for Mac. Madame Fate, RTR, Drawn 1 -- absolutely fantastic.

The Azada games as well -- then they give their baby away for adoption to ERS for Azada 3. Hidden Expedition 5 -- well, I'm not sure if they produced that one in Studio or not, because we never got it. And again, BFG doesn't seem to care -- not one word about it.

Well, I've changed too. I like to play games, BFG sells games at the best price, I will buy them here. But loyalty and respect have nothing to do with it anymore.

I will continue to hope as long as they keep this thread "stickied".

But, if the game is a no show for the Mac platform, hopefully they will be kind enough to post an explanatory apology here before they change this thread's status and lock it away.

OK I pm'd Solice and ask him about this, don't know if I will get an answer, and I'm sure all of you have done the same thing.

I don't think she checks her PMs that often, and it's clear no one is checking this thread.


Nearly 3 months now.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to pop in with an update on the situation for this game. I know this has been a frustrating situation and we're very sorry for the wait for this game so far

The reason this game is taking so long at the moment is as Solice mentioned in her OP:

Solice wrote:In order to take Mystery Case Files to the next level, making it more immersive, intense, and engaging as possible, we had to build an entirely new engine.

However building the new engine for Mac, I'm sorry to say took longer to build than was anticipated

So it is still being worked on and again we're sorry for the wait. But I want to assure you we haven't forgotten about it and are still working on it so hopefully the wait won't be TOO much longer.

bfgCimarron

Thank you BFGCimarron. Hope it is still "top priority". I know there's a programmer there who won't give up. Thanks in advance!

Thank you, Cimarron, for the update. It's been a long wait and looks to be longer. I think we should get MCF badges *and* a Charles doll for waiting so long.
