It wasn't working when PILMAN posted.

So let him check again before jumping to deleterious implications !!

What was deleterious about that?

I peripherally helped with the beta-testing of that game and visited the Site daily both before and after the demo was released.
It has never been down on the many dozens of times I've accessed it !!

To imply that a Site is down when it isn't (and nobody bothers to correct the incorrect info) is deleterious, IMO !!

I'm beta testing four other (full) games at the moment, and writing a walkthru for one of them.
Reply if you wish, but I haven't got the energy to argue the toss any further on something that I imagined was self evident... I have more constructive things to spend my limited time on!
Hence, I won't add any additional (further) posts explaining my opinions on this matter.

Sorry this seems to have upset a couple of you... apologies.

1. Dale confirmed that the link wasn't working at the time.
2. The site could have been down for dozens of reasons, eg. technical problems with the server, totally not in control by the game's creators.

In conclusion, what PILMAN said was neither 1. misinformation nor 2. in any way detrimental to the people who made the game. Thanks for letting us know that the download works, but accusing him of "jumping to deleterious implications" wasn't necessary.

And that's my final post on the matter.

No need to get aggressive. Miez.nl was down when I tried to download it on june 18th. It came back up june 19th at about 3 in the morning. The site also hosts their forums and the demo. I downloaded it on the 19th. Depending where you live country wise it's very possible the DNS was updating and that you were seeing it before myself which is why it may have appeared to be down. DNS takes 24 hours to update. Great game by the way.

Wow! It's like I uncovered an old game that I forgot to play years ago. Everything about this is impressive - even the dialogue ain't half bad. Let's hope the story holds up well in the full game. Good stuff!

Excellent job! The graphics and the feel of this game remain very true to Fate of Atlantis. Great backgrounds, music, and animations too!

I'm looking forward to playing it! Nice work.

Great demo... it's so good to have something feel like Fate Of Atlantis after all these years.

One question, though, about the big guy.

Spoiler:
Once you've written down the wrong name on the order sheet, is there any way to pass the guard other than fighting him?

Thanks for all your kind words, I'm glad you enjoyed the demo

From time to time the server may be down but I'm sure most have the demo now anyway! Also, it was featured in August's PC Gamer (UK) and PC Zone (UK) - yay!
