When will the Earl Boen version of chapter 1 be up?

I was wondering when the version of Launch of the Screaming Narwhal with Earl as LeChuck would be available for download.

    The disc version has no DRM either, whereas the downloadable versions use online activation. If all they had to do was cut and paste the disc version onto the website they would have done so.

  • Taking the piss this a bit now don't you think?

  • If you care this much, get the DVD! You already have the full game, so IT'S FREE!!!!

    No more "It's all the way on the other side of the room, downloading it is faster... :/" bollocks.

  • It's the principle of the thing. Telltale have yet to make good on their promise to upload it to the website. Should we just say "OK, they'll never do what they said they would, good for them"?

  • Yes. Go outside and worry about something important.

    I for one don't like being told by a game company that they're going to provide a certain piece of content when they actually won't. Promises made in bad faith lead to unhappy customers.

    I have the DVD, in it's DRM free format with it's EB episode 1 but the whole point is I have a Telltale account with the ability to download these games should I need to. You can preach your " oh get over it there's more uimportant things to worry about", which indeed there are, but they told their customers this would be sorted in a few weeks. It's been 9 month since the DVD was released.
    Just put up the DRM free already completed version on the net and be done with it.

    They've had the time to make an Ipad version of episode 1 as well so don't give me they are to busy either. How about catering to you're existing customers first?

  • I guess it's safe to assume that the Earl Boen version is not really going to be available for download? Obviously, it's not that big of a deal, but I've got to agree with those who are disappointed. I mean, they promised it was going to be updated more than a year ago, and they did have the time to release that same episode in a complete different platform (and are appearently working in the other four).

    Not a big deal (it's not like LeChuck has thousands of lines in this episode), but definitely disappointing. I think Telltale should at least state they eventually changed their plans.

    They don't care, if it doesn't mean more sales, they couldn't care less about it. Happy customers mean nothing to them.

  • Well, if they didn't care they wouldn't have redubbed the episode in the first place. But I just don't get it: they made an official statement saying they were going to update the episode, if they changed their plans they should at least say so.
