sinsaint,

I'm still not 100% sure when the CE will be available to the public. I'm confused, lol. Guess time will tell. Picman's post seems to say December, but I could be reading it wrong.

Picman!! Such a NASTY joke!!! I LOVE IT!!!

Still, because of the 9.0 richter scale heart attack you gave me, you are OFFICIALLY Victor's next victim in MCF #7!! Do you hear that ??? You have your next storyline!!:

"After Picman mysteriously vanishes beneath the Big Fish pond, players must find bits & pieces of Picman's life in a surreal HOG in an attempt to piece together why Victor felt it necessary to kidnap (and possibly murder???) Picman for Picman's macabre sense of humor and put the once chaotic world back in order.

Is Picman alive?

Is Victor alive?

Is Elvis alive?

Coming soon in November 2011. No, wait. Coming in January 2012. Aw, heck. Whenever we get around to releasing it.

Play Pac-Man's Grove and solve the mystery!"


Picman's fate is in your hands!!!

Almost all November passed, and I bought only 4 games. I was sure that I will be able to accomplish the 2-3 last games, but as heard from the Managers ( especially by the Big Fish swimming around) - it becomes "Mission Impossible".

No, I won't buy the big file without playing 1 hour trail, and after Mudrock posted the coming games - there is not a chance for me to be seduced to buy games only to fill the gap.

Happy Thanksgiving, "believers"...

Opps! I stand corrected: The Collector's Edition of the game will only be available to Game Club members. I hope that helps clear up the confusion!

Thanks Erie. That's what I had originally assumed, but wasn't totally clear on it.

Too clear up confusion and so you can plan your sleep schedules here is the official release date and time.
The Collector's Edition will be released at 12:01am PST Wednesday to Game Club members only. This is not TGT it is not Today's New Release, but it will show up on the New Release calendar and the entire site will be themed Dire Grove, so you will not miss it. We will have our normal TGT and New Release that day in addition to Dire Grove CE.

If you are not a Game Club member or you want the normal game without the extras for $6.99, it will be available in a few weeks in early December. (Date not set as we do not yet know, we still have to build the level limited trial since the download is 350MB, but this time they will try to include a full hour of levels).

Again 12:01am PST Wednesday means...
- 3:01 am EST
- 8:01 am in the UK
- 7:01 pm in Australia on the 26th

Picman


Just to answer another question about availability:
Collector's Edition is a benefit only available to Game Club Members on the 25th and into the future. If you have never been a member you can try it out free for 30 days now. If you were once a member but no longer, you would have to rejoin for $6.99 (fee includes a Game Club Credit good for a game) to get access to Collector's Edition.

The normal MCF: Dire Grove game is available in early December, both member and non-member of Game Club.

We are not taking anything away from non-members, just adding more privileges for members.

Picman said that if you are not a Game Club member or you want the normal game without the extras for $6.99, it will be available in a few weeks in early December. So, the Collector's Edition of the game will be available to the general public in early December. I hope that helps clear up the confusion!


Sorry Erie...Collector's Edition will always be only for Big Fish Game Club Members.

bfgErie, feel free to edit your post to be correct and delete this one.

I feel like a little girl waiting for Santa again. I am soooo excited about this game. I was a beta tester for it & I think it's gonna be awesome.
