Sol705 campaign

Runaway 3 takes off early at Adventure Shop

Though the retail version is still lagging behind, the download version of Runaway: A Twist of Fate gets off to an early start this week, as the game is now available at The Adventure Shop.

The third and final adventure for stars Brian Basco and Gina Timmins begins on a rather ominous note, with Gina attending Brian's funeral. What bizarre sequence of events brought them to that point? That's for players to discover through a variety of scenarios that see Brian convicted of murder and sent to an insane asylum, and that's just for starters. And for the first time in the series, Gina is a playable character here, as she plays a much larger role than she has in previous games.

The full retail release of the game is currently scheduled for early next year, for PC, Wii, and Nintendo DS. For more information about A Twist of Fate, be sure to check out our recent preview and the series website.

UPDATE: A 1.05 patch has already been released, which fixes sound issues during the cinematics and/or the dialogs on some systems. Current saved games are compatible with the patched version. The patch is 12.4 MB and can be downloaded here. Just click the file to run after saving.

Works great for me.

Fun game. Well done, fun puzzles, good graphics and good sound. Some cut scenes are of terrible quality though and must have been thrown together in the last minute.

To much story in the beginning for my taste, but after that it’s nicely portioned out. Just the right difficulty for my taste, and length is pretty close to perfect.

I’m curious. I’ve played the other 2. I like the graphical style although I wasn’t a huge fan of the last one. Although I’m curious to see what happens at the end.

I’ll probably wait for a new patch and give this one a try.

Started playing the game, encountered sound issues. DLed and installed the patch, and now the game won’t start. Issues with my graphics drivers? Why, when the game had run minutes before? A check of the game forum shows MANY folks with issues. Pendulo is reportedly working on a fix. Beware this buggy game until another patch or three is released.

Outstanding game, I must say this episode was the best one and maybe the best adventure of the year, great great adventure, amazing graphics and the story is very good and fits the rest. I hope we hear more from Pendulo soon and I would love to play another Gina and Brian game again. Very cool hints system too. Thanks Pendulo for that old school adventure Smile
