The website says early December - hopefully that will become more specific soon

Could be a silly question but I'm wondering. Downloading right now. The installer says 589,888 KB to download but I saw Full unlimited version Large File: 576.06 MB on webpage.

How big is it exactly? Am I getting the whole package at 589.888 KB? Doesn't look right.

Yes, there will be the usual demo available. Don't know if it will be a 1 hour trial or up to a certain point.

576.06MB is equal to 576060KB. Without getting too technical, when you d/l it uses more bits than are actually in the game as it sort of spaces out.
When you buy an 8GB MP3 player, you don't get to use the whole 8GB as there needs to be free space (hubby did explain it to me once, but I spaced out).

If you plan to download today, then you will be purchasing the Collector's Edition which comes with the Strategy Guide. It's not an easy game, but there is built in support, and people are already posting questions and help on the Game Forum. I played all through the night and just loved it so much.

Thank you Purplerabbit. I can see the difference now.

Still downloading but almost done. A little over an hour. Can't wait to play.

HMMM Odd, it stated in the link from the BigFish news paper editorial that the game was coming out on the 25th Nov, for BigFish exclusive member's. I have been an exclusive member since 2005, so where is my copy of the game???? lol

I'm just trying to explain
1) the game landed everywhere at the same physical time, whether that was 12.01am Seattle or 8.01am UK,
2) the time stamp on all forum posts is the time PST, so if you are unsure how long, just work out how many hours to 12.01am on the forum clock.

Sorry if I was rude.


No problem, Purplerabbit, you weren't rude. I think we were all a little sleep-deprived and crazed with excitement.

Sad to say, I am back in the forum because the game just threw me out. I had just achieved the third goal (ambiguous enough?) when I got a "access error, tried to write to" message. I'm nervous about going back in, but....deep breath...wish me luck, fishies!

Sorry to disagree with you, but 1MB is actually 1024KB, and therefore, if you multiply it out, the math comes out pretty close to the figures that Purplerabbit gave in the original question.
