    Hi everyone,

    We are still working this out, but there will not be a long delay between the premiere on Gametap and launch on Telltale. I will let you know as soon as this is nailed down.

    but our goal is be as unsucky as possible

    Yeah that wait is gonna kill me.. Dan will there be a demo for the pilot?

  • A demo for a two hour game? You could try it for free on Gametap though by signing up and canceling before your two weeks are over.

    I've been waiting since '93, I can wait a few more weeks until the non-gametap release. :)

    Shame! - I'm curious though; if GameTap isn’t available outside North America - Why does there need to be a delay for the other regions? - It's not like it would compete with GameTaps income? (& won’t it encourage Piracy?).

    I'm not complaining (too old to worry about getting stuff on it's release date - too slow these days too), just curious.

    Because it's hard to restrict direct download sales on the Internet to specific countries.

    Don't credit card sales generally require a billing address for confirmation? I remember Play.com not letting me order stuff with an Australian credit card.

    I think it's fairly easy - a lot of bigger commercial sites have a generic .com addy which automatically re-direct you to the relevant regional site? - I reckon they didn’t know the source, how could the data packets get from the websites server back to your PC?

    & like JunkFace says - How many Americans have credit cards registered outside the country?

    I don't want it to appear that I'm throwing a hissy fit over this - It's just a video game after all. I'd guess it may well have just been part of their agreement with GameTap?

    Is GameTap cheaper than Steam?

    I was just at Introversion’s website and reading about how they did really well selling Darwinia through Steam - Sold more copies in three weeks through steam than they did after nine months of selling from their website apparently? (Hey, I'm at work and bored - gimme a break :) )

    Yeah, and as they said the delay won't be long so I really don't mind.

    If Telltale stays true to their words that is. :D

  • I bought it here from Germany directly from the Telltale website (not from gametap itself)

    It was easy-- just need a credit card (oops well I did use a credit card with an american address) but they take paypal too.

    I do hope Gametap will be available here soon
