That's fine. At least it's going to be released. I get over excited far too often.

Now on Steam for pre-order, glad to see a new adventure game finally on there like Gray Matter should have been.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/58570/

Awfully pricy though, same price as AAA titles like Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Fallout New Vegas, and Crysis 2 (in UK at least).

I'm happy both The Next Big Thing and the third Runaway are coming to Steam but I'm confused on the prices. If you look under the "COMING SOON" tab they're both shown as $19.99 but once you click on one they only have bundles offered that include the previous Runaway games.

I have ordered the retail version. I always prefer retail to digital. Digital downloads are often unreliable and DRM limited, not worth the price they usualy have.

I prefer didigal buy and download versions and so far i didnt have any problems most of my adventure i bought throught gamersgate.com
But also from meaboli and other sites. And never had bug or errors in installations activations or any other problems.

DRM=Digital Rights Managment ?
So what does it do ? I mean the problem is with the activation so you cant play it on another computer ? I mean retail version also have a code no ? Or in retail you cna play it on any computer ?

I live in Israel we are belong to Europe and still when a game is out in the u.s or europe sometimes it might take a wekk sometimes even a month or so untill you see it here in stores. Its not europe that even if the game is in a store in another country you can make a trip with train

In Israel you stuck. Amd digital version is something you can play right now! You dont have to wait for it to get in the mail. From europe or us packages in the mail sometimes get after two weeks maybe a month.

Why to wait ?

I just played the demo, and - holy carp - the graphics are amazing. It was too high-res for my laptop so I had to hook it up to my television. I'm no fan of the two first Runaway games (haven't played the third one) since I think they would have worked much better without all the craziness that Pendulo inevitably seems to bring. This story seems a much better fit for the studios. Also, the voice acting and translation appears to be a considerable improvement from the Runaway games. I'm definitely going to play this.
