You are right Kelvarda - when I entered to see the TGT, I saw an anouncement - "get a free game". I closed the window without reading, but after that it disappeared from the home page (I enter the home page from outside (keep the link saved) so may be if it will appear if you enter from outside?)

Edit: No, it's not there anymore.

I wish a Mod would come into one of the threads and clear this up. There are some other's in the thread in CCC - GENEROUS BIG FISH - that haven't seen this 'apparition' either. I did wonder (and still am) whether this is another OS foul-up?

Kel


At @ 8:10 this morning, 10 mins after the release, I clicked the game to try it & was taken straight to the free game screen, I had to click out, re click the game to try & never saw the pop up again.

May be they are trying to corner certain devs into exclusives with the promise of ectra sales. Just an idea.

I am loving this game. If I could, I'd down load it again, just to whooppee post about it

I said buy as many as you can before end of week Sat for more chances in the drawing. 2 asked what lottery, ummm sweepstakes, told them where to get info. Well, I looked myself for how long only to find that ended in Month of March. Madness?? No wonder I didn't win anything this month.

May Day!! May Day!!!! old lady down.


ROFL! Thank you so much for the laugh today!!
Does anyone else think that the policeman looks like an English "Bobby" by his badge, as others have pointed out to me that it is set in France. (Another old lady down! )
Also, have you noticed that there are more posts in this thread than the C & R? This thread needs to be stickied, thank you to PowderMonkey, wherever you are lately, for the idea and to shadowfax for starting it up.

Pop up to Derbyshire anytime, the weather here is so hot! We have had no rain for about 3 weeks. (Hope I am not tempting fate)
PS. Almost too nice to be indoors playing computer games

This could have been a good game but it's so annoying to have everything handed to you (sparkles). What's the point of searching places when you're told where everything is? They should have had an advanced option. I got frustrated with all the help after 10 minutes.

The sparkles do lessen as time goes on. I did not like this either.

Sorry it so wet in Devon for your bank hols! I'm in Dorset which has a boundary with Devon, and it's a sunny day with chilly wind!
Loved this game, the graphics were phenominal! Not sure what a kangeroo and a stingray were doing in the bushes of a French castle though??
Or why a French policeman had an English copper's hat on??

Since they have finally appeared to be listening, and I know many of us have been buying, it is nice to get a little something back. I wound up with four punch cards filled, and four left over yesterday. Just couldn't find two more I wanted to buy. I am off to play this one now. I expect to enjoy this one


I don't feel so bad now, I just finished filling a fourth card by the end of the month. So many good games, so little time! I've got a backlog of games I've started and not finished and it's making me feel a little guilty. I think I'll hold off on even trying the demo on this one until I play some of the rest of my stash. I'm like a little kid stocking up on candy or something.

I started my XP PC (haven't been on it for a week), googled Big Fish, entered via that link, and still no banner (OR POP-UP) regarding a free game coupon. Pop up for NEW50 as usual, the banner I see is for Allora and the Broken Portal!!

Apologies, brain moved to another country. I meant to say a POP up appeared not a banner. My mistake.
