excellent - there seems to be little on the horizon Rpg-wise so this should tide me over nicely ;-) I quite enjoyed the 1st title, although it was a little short. Anyone know if Book II is going to be substantially longer?

In comparison, Book I was a 20-25 hour game for most people.

I know the quote is nearly two years old, but I hope that answers your question booboo.

Demo??? just buy it

Well, seriously it is like this, you download the "shareware" version which is the demo… and after that if you want to go on playing…. just buy the code.

Excellent. I can see many beautiful spring days when I should be outside with me hunched over the computer addicted to this instead. Great news.

Always. What good is health if you can't play games?

I wonder if I could get mine early if I just drove to Indianapolis? It's just 4 hours away. I think DTE practically lives in the Wrangler's back yard….

That sounds really great for an Indie title - I'm even more enthusiastic now!

Side question - can one get back problems from being hunched over the computer for too long. Mine's been bugging me. It's probably DTE's fault.

Cool! I've been waiting since I picked up E1 a while ago. And the timing is almost perfect.
