    So this is out now apparently. I remember seeing an post about it being in development somewhere here but I can't be arsed to find it.

    Russian translation into English doesn't inspire much hope, but the art seems nice and they promise multiple solutions to puzzles.

    Re-release of uncirculated copies of I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream straight from Harlan Ellison's collection!

    All this made in China junk is not worth an extra $100.

    I would have been very willing to buy just the game...but most of that is just useless. I don't really use stickers or lithographs, and sticking that statue somewhere in my house is something I wouldn't want to do. That seems like a weird thing to display, and something that sounds like a very awkward conversation starter.

    shame this package contains the game itself, one of the least enjoyable adventures I've ever had the chance to play

    Yeah. It seems to nail everything but the fail states make this a chore for me and that comes from someone who likes the King's Quest games. I'll give it another shot sometime though.

    Looks like they removed this option, I had it bookmarked and now it says 404. It's not listed in the store anymore. Now I have to pay $100 extra for all of that shit

    This is tagged as an adventure game (but devs describe it as an interactive fiction). Might be worth $9 for playing with relaxing interactive graphic. Story is probably disappointing. Demo aviable on Steam.

    reviews say it's "a great way to spend an hour and a half" and indicates it's a mobile port.

    They have Chanfray & Raynal on board but still have a job opening for "Game Director / Creative Director" for the project ? Dubious.
    The writer chick that makes up the other half of the "creative board" also spells doom & despair from a mile away, from a cursory look at her website/resume.

    Still, I want to believe and all that. First LBA is still one of my handful of desert island games.
