It's a really short demo, about 15 minutes of actual gameplay. The interface is likeable and sam and max are really funny. The humor is much the same as the old one. I can't wait to get the full version! The demo takes place in sam and max's office, you dont get to leave so a picture would just be a picture of one scene.

One weird thing is that it wont let me set above 1024x768 resolution.

Timezones, Work and I'd rather just get the Full Game :D

about the 1024x768 issue, I'm wodering if the game engine restricts high res. I believe it uses pre-rendered backgrounds...

For those who have bought the game. Do it download an installer or does it work like Steam. The reason being I want to buy it, but I'm at work! If it's just an installer I can download it here and take it home on my USB HDD.

hmmm. my specs are in sig. clean XP SP2, DX9 october installed, 91.47s but it will only let me put it at 1024. I had this issue with FEAR also, where it wouldnt let me set above 1024 i had to force in a config file. Anyone else having/had this problem and knows a fix?

It's possible you might have to add either 1280x720 or 1280x960 or both as a custom resolution. I needed to do this with NFS:U and PoP: Sands of Time.

Problem is I'm using the 91.47 drivers also and get an error when I try to add a custom resolution.

Ha. My head is already exploded!

$34.95 for all Episodes of Season 1. Plus I threw in a T-Shirt for good measure :)

First Ep downloaded and ready for playing once I get home.

Yep .. or Sin Eps.
though for an adv game its more appropriate.

Yep like HL2, though they are all more or less finished and the games will roll out every month. I think there is a 2 month gap between Ep1 and 2.

I just played a few mins on my work lappy and it's been a blast. I know it's not going to suit everyone, but as a fan on the comics since the early 90s I'm loving every moment.

BTW I can't select more than 1024x768 on this laptop, hope I can get to atleast 1280x960 on my home PC though.

If you purchase the license do you need to be connected to the net every time you start? For example, can I buy the game for my girly? (who is on dial up)

Sweet! :D

I'll get to play this demo, then send my 7950gx2 away and not be able to play anything until I get a G80. :p

Doesn't look like a Net connection is needed. Once you download the installer you should be able to take it to her place, install and play without needing to connect to the net at all.

When buying it did ask me for an email and pass to use verify the game, but the game itself hasn't asked me for it yet...

Forget the demo! The Full game is OUT!!!!111111one111!!

Don't you have a spare PCI-e or regular PCI card? Not much would be needed to run it.

I have a 32Mb mx-200 PCI... I don't know if that would cut it. Though it did run Half-Life 2. :p

I just played this demo and its awesome! I'll definitely be buying this later. :captnkill: :maxshoot:
