Default Dead Mountaineer's Hotel

It seems that multiple endings is a common feature in a few upcoming games,
Dead Mountaineer's Hotel is on the top of the list,with a firm english release date
on the 31st of March and a demo coming soon on the official site
http://hotel.akella.com/
the game also features a Robust 3D real-time game engine allows for truly non-linear gameplay,and special effects (changes in weather, day and night gameplay sequences) which looks very promising.

the game is released in Russian already,did anyone try it?

When previewed, I´ve read a comparison to The Last Express, due to its real time aspect. But from what I´ve heard lately, the game is not very good :-(

I'm too counting on this game. And I'm still doing it.

Now, we have one or two translated reviews and a couple of opinion. When So Blonde was released there were many reviews bashing it and even more people seeing that it was horrible, and it turned out to be - at least for me - one of the greatest games of this season.

So, I really want to play it!

I'm looking forward to this game too and definitely will wait to form my own opinion, so many of my favorites games wasn't so "good" and I still enjoy them a lot. Definitely one of my to play games list. Looking forward to multiple endings too. I usually try not to expect a best seller and that way don't become dissapointed. Give me some interesting story, interesting characters and don't rush the ending. That will do.

Don't put your hopes into a date at an online retailer. The only dates that count are those from the publisher. Online stores estimate and they'll change on a whim.

Edit: The stupid quote tags aren't working and I can't fix them.

I always form my own opinions on games. Some of my favourite games got lousy reviews and other, higher rated games, I thought were pretty bad. As long as a game isn't full of bugs, if the story appeals to me, I give it a chance. I'm still looking forward to this game, too.

Although I am prepared for the worst, I will try both Mata Hari and DMH. I would like to try some demo, if it was available.

It hasn't been released. That "1 to 2 months" is just Amazon's typical way of saying it has no idea what's happening with an already-expired release date.

At this point, I wouldn't hold my breath on DMH being released at all, let alone any time soon.

I admire your enthusiasm, but unless the publisher solves its current financial problems, wishful thinking won't make it so. But I'll be sure to ask them about it again the next time I talk to them, which I do quite frequently.

Tobacos please don't spread false facts about the release of a game. It's the second time you do that and it's rather annoying. I think the owners of this site are much more suitable for this job.

yep, it doesen´t seem to look very promising, hopefully things will work out for Lighthouse. And on a personal note: Eventhough Germany gets a lot of games first, in this case we´re in "trouble". Working together with DTP ,Lighthouse was supposed to bring The Lost Crown , Rhiannon and DMH to Germany and now.. who knows what will happen to these games. I only know that i can´t take the waiting for the lost crown any longer and i´ll order it from the UK within the next days.

Thinks looks grim for this title english version. We should petition another publisher to take it and bring it to us. Crossing fingers.
