Was this originally listed as a CE in Mudrock's thread? Dev response within!

[Post New]by Cordia on Jul 14, 11 12:15 AM
I'm pretty sure this was supposed to be a standard release. Is THIS why the game's release was postponed so long? The devs saw how much people wanted to play it and decided to pump it into a CE?

....yeah, who developed this? Because they're now on my no-buy list.

UPDATE: Askold of Vogat popped in to explain why the change happened. I shouldn't have been so hasty with my judgement, and it's been quite a long time since the game was first announced, so it seems possible that they've had plenty of time to polish things up and add a substantial bonus game. My apologies for being so cranky.

This game developed by Vogat (Gravely Silent, Reincarnations, Dark Ritual etc....). So where is Unsolved Mystery Club 2 CE?

I have no proof but I was always under the impression this one was to be a CE. May be because how every one raved about it.

Dear players,

Let me explain please. F.A.C.E.S. CE is much longer than SE was. We added a HUGE new chapter in the CE. We made the game much longer than it previously was. We care about our players. I hope you enjoy.

In addition, we improved the SE chapters. You've got even better game.

And if you do not want to buy CE - just wait a month please. But I'm sure you will not be disappointed - the new CE chapter is very good, even better than SE. I love F.A.C.E.S. CE.

I wish you enjoyment of the game. Thank you for your choice.

Askold

Hello Askold,

I am happy as I can be that you lengthened the game and are releasing it as a CE. I really appreciate you taking your time to come in personally and explain this to us and I am always looking forward to whatever Vogat releases to us next, I am never disappointed in the games that are developed by your studios.

I am really excited for Reincarnations III to come out.

Thank you again for stopping in.

Hey Askold,

Thanks for commenting on this personally. Vogat is one of only a few development teams that would compel me to suspend judgement. It is bold for you to come in and explain that it was upgraded to a CE, so I will wait and read the commentary. I'll edit my original post to reflect that, while still leaving my original post intact (so as not to cause confusion).

About two hours longer (CE). But it depends on the player and game mode.

Vogat, I LOVE the game. I am only 13 minutes into the demo. It's creepy and chilly-ing I have been waiting for a game like this. I like the fact that not all objects are so overt/out in the open. Plus it saves your spot if you leave the game and then go back in. That is a very important factor for me. I knew I was saving up for a good CE for some reason. Finally found it!!

I am definitely buying this game.

Thanks for such a great game.

I just read your post to amj. 2 hours longer??? OK That's 4 or 5 hours for me because I am a slow player!!! lol

When I saw Vogat as the devs on this game, I knew it would be great and it is.

This month's budget precludes purchasing as a CE, but will be waiting for the SE release.

Did you even demo the game before posting? It's unfair to the developers to announce things like this without doing a little preliminary research first.

Hey Stevieferr--Shyed (sic) away from too many hog games??? Clear the forem (sic) of the hog pirates??? Robbed LOYAL players??? Not too sure what you meant by all this--don't think Mudrock implied that it was a CE way back when, but this IS Thursday, after all! You may be missing out on a good one!

(ETA--if you're looking for "brain surgery," try "Unwell Mel"!)

I tried the trial and never got past the first chapter. I figured this should be a long game. It's kept me busy and I like it. As usual Vogat games never let me down. I bought this game and am looking forward to finishing it.

Hi Askold ,
Thanks so much for visiting the pond, I love when a developer takes the time to come and listen to our feedback, about their games.
Not only that, but also letting us know, that the bonus chapter is on average, 2hrs long, of course depending on the players skill level, but that is a HUGE plus, in my book .
Also, I don't purchase many CE's at all, due to funds, but I played the trial, and just LOVED this game, the opening scenes were so cool to watch, graphics are FANTASTIC, with a great story...LOVE IT !!
In the one H0 scene, there was a little bear, with huge eye's, I rolled my mouse over it, as if to pet it, and it closed it eye's, as if to say, oh that feels so good..too CUTE!
There was a spintop on the floor of another H0 scene, that rolled around, when you moused, by it, love these extra touches .
Knowing now that the bonus chapter is long, so it is worth the CE price, I may have to do without some of my favorite snacks, from the grocery store next month, because I am getting this visualy stunning, creepy atmosphere, with a story that has completely sucked me IN, great game...Oh Yea baby, my cup of tea, for SURE .
THANKS askold, and everyone at Volgat, that had a hand in making this, all of your effort and hard work, shows in this masterpeice, job well done !
I may not be saying this next month, when I don't have my, Dove chocolate bar, with almonds to eat, while playing my games..LOL, JUST kidding :-)
