How many months do we have to wait for a CE HOG that is not evil? Is one a month too much to ask for? It's been weeks, if not months since one has been released. I'm getting tired of this.

puppycake, the evil is more along the lines of fairytale , rapunzel, sleeping beauty type, then what ers games usually have,

Last week, it was "CE Friday"--now, we're back to "CE Thursday"! Good forecast, Mudrock!

I don't see this game as being dark and evil (e.g., Green Hills Sanitarium or Redrum2), but rather a fantasy set in the Middle Ages. Sure, there's a "wicked witch" involved, but there was in The Wizard of OZ, too!

Keeping MY fingers crossed , too, Bella--sometimes, ERS games are a little sluggish. Yep, a bit after 3:00 AM here, too--some 's, then do the demo and try to come back with more comments!

(Hey Puppycake--did you just become a ? Good for you!)

The music sounded nice, quiet semi classical, and I love fairy tales. Yeh, always the wicked witch for some conflict and a damsel in distress for family entertainment. No prince in shining armore? Hope this is in that vein as I'm more tired of vampires, assylums, cemetaries, dark dark depressing..

Pretty long file though, must be heavy on music and graphics. Looks worth a try to me for an hour or less on sample CE. Maybe something humorous in it, I hope.

But it is Thursday morning...what are we doing with a CE? BF is trying to keep us off balance, that is for sure. Guess it is better than being so dang gum predictable, lol. Downloading now. Gave up on yesterday's. Too many glitches, and I got tired of closing out and restarting, just to have it screw up again a couple of scenes later. May be tickled with this one...

et correct typo going to back to bed now...this one is so good, and I want to totally enjoy it after some rest. Been on the computer most of the day, and then in bed with a book, so bed is calling me back. But this one is good and isn't dark at all. ERS has come through again...kudos to the team!

eta (again) still had a typo, and then realized I had another post after this one, but who cares, lol.

10 minutes into the game, and I am hooked. Love the voice. And I was in bed with a good book, but had a couple of flashes of lightning and thought I should check storm progress. So now instead of shutting down and unplugging, I am going to play some more of this one and just check storm site every so often. Of course the dogs will alert if something bad is coming...usually.

Could tell from the opening that this was going to be a winner for me. Wide screen with no borders. Nice introduction and objects visible, good for these old eyes. Thanks Big Fish, looks like its long enough to last a while too. Im so glad i didnt have to give negative comments today. Its feels good. Have a good weekend fishies.

So far, so good. This isn't a dark, creepy story at all. Another princess who has to restore her kingdom. I am enjoying the story, the voice overs, the **** scenes and some different puzzles. It's just late and I need some sleep. Will check on everyone's opinions later.


Happy gaming!
Joy

YAY!!! Love ERS And this "Fairy Tale" story will be a nice change from all the games lately.
This was a straight buy for me since I did the Beta....Thanks BF!
Be back later with a full review..



Beautifully done graphics that are clear.
Interesting story line.
Mini games are imaginative and fit the game well.
Hints are plentiful.
Have to work hard for the miss-click and the punishment is short.
Length is decent. 4+ hours for me as it is a nice relaxing game.

I purchased the CE of Amber Maiden Collector's Edition as I thought I would get the SG. When I press the "more info" button it comes up with SG then when I press OK nothing happens. I feel ripped off - paying for a CE and not getting the extras.

PS. My apologies. I found the SG just when I finished.

Bonus Content Unavailable:
I bought the CE edition of Amber Maiden, and liked playing the game a lot. I do NOT like all of the D/E games that seem to be taking over the Casual Gaming world, and this was a very pleasant (surprise) change. The Strategy Guide was handy and accessible for me from the beginning. I've played the CE twice now, and although I received the "Congratulations, you can now access the bonus features" message, the "locks" are still in place, and the only available option I have is "Play." Anyone else had this issue?

Duh! Figured out I hadn't played the Bonus Game. Now that I have, everything is unlocked.
