A countdown would be nice, once they know for sure when we'll be getting it. I don't see the point in giving us more clues though. We already know what the game's about from the spec thread.

I hope they don't forget their promise about the MCF badges.

How about for us Mac users could you give some of that excitement back? Create idk something where you can do a build up about the game for Mac players with like a count down to reveal for us. And/or clues so we can get excited about getting the game. Help us feel part of it??? Some kinda of way to make the us the poor cousin "Macs" feel at least some what included?


I think it's too late for any of that.

The last thing I want to do is play yet another guessing game. How would they introduce it? I know: "Anyone" can escape from Ravenhearst sooner than next spring! Guess the date and get dinner with Charles.

What makes this so annoying is the hype we were encouraged to be part of with no suggestion we would be left out of the big reveal. If this were just another great upcoming game we had to wait for, such is life. It is just a game after all, one of thousands. But one they could afford to produce because of all the $$$$ they make selling them to us. So it''s just the principle of what went down, the unthinkable way they bit the hand that feeds them. Knocking the rungs out of the ladder as you climb to the top is never a good idea.

I just hope the CE is released for Mac before the SE version is released for the PC, adding more salt to the wound. They clearly consider us small potatoes. Would they have ever done the reverse of what happened? Sure, we are a smaller percentage of their sales, but we all have a voice. Is this the story they want us to tell? I do not understand how they could see this as good business.

*sigh* well it was at least a thought... a count down would be good. Or at least a note from that they are at least reading this thread.

I can agree with that 100%! Sorry if I sounded like I was attacking you personally. I know you were just trying to make the waiting more tolerable.

My entire argument is with BFG, and it really has little to do with waiting for this particular game.

You didn't sound like you were attacking me at all. I was sighing because when I post on here about wanting some kind of reaction from Big Fish I feel like I am talking to a wall. And it would be nice if some staff person of BF would give us something anything. Btw I completely agree with your argument.

Sorry to say that the feeling I'm getting from BF, with their ZERO response to ANY of our questions regarding this game, is that they would just like us all to shut up and go away.

I'm pretty close to giving them what they seem to want. There are other places to buy games and I have a huge backlog of books on my Nook to read. I got along just fine before BFG came along, I'm pretty sure I can get along just fine without them. I would however miss all our MAC fishies and I sure would miss the word game forum. lol

From Solice via the Mac Forum:

I am afraid I have no word yet, I will update you as soon as I know more.

This is still being worked on as a top priority for our studios team, we are doing all we can to get this to you as quickly as possible.


As much as we want to hear something, I guess they really don't want to repeat that day after day. Disappointing -- a Holiday release would have been nice.

So we just wait.

Happy collective Holiday greetings to you all! May we all be blessed with the gifts of health and peace.

Well they finally put a walkthrough up for it.. from what I've read at the pc users the integrated sg is not that great.. so we can read the walk through and watch the videos !!!! I know I'm pathetic I just hope this game is going to be worth all this anxiety we're feeling right now !

I think the next game should have some connection with either 13th Skull or Dire Grove. There were the two things concerning the phone call in Dire Grove and the letters in 13th Skull.

I'm guessing, they really don't have a clue.

A month has past and still no word. . And there is still no Kingdom for the Princess III, and Pc just got Royal Envoy 2. While we got Holiday games?! I used to work in customer service and I would bend over backwards to make things more pleasant if I had a client who felt shorted. Sheesh.

Well, I was holding out hope that we'd get a Christmas release. Boo. I wish we'd at least get an update.

Solice, please respond! This is getting ridiculous in terms of customer service. Of course, you don't have to say something everyday, but a response in this thread would be appreciated.

My list of complaints is getting longer and longer. First, no warning whatsoever that the game would be late, then we Mac-users have to beg for some attention, and I suppose we still will have to pay for the game when (or should I say : IF) it finally comes....
