Title: To the Moon - Retail Boxed Version
Post by: Reives on July 01, 2012, 09:25:15 PM
As Squall posted in the chatbox this morning (I didn't even know about it myself, hahah), the UK Amazon page for the boxed version of To the Moon (published for retail by Lace Mamba) is now up. :)

http://www.amazon.co.uk/To-the-Moon-PC-DVD/dp/B0083SMWK2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1341159840&sr=8 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/To-the-Moon-PC-DVD/dp/B0083SMWK2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1341159840&sr=8)

Still a little iffy about the review scores tutting out at the bottom like that, but I really like the overall design. c: Hopefully it gets a North American release soon too.


Edit: Oh! I can actually show ya guys the inside/back from the design doc they sent. :D Here it is:

Woah, I love the box design! :vikonsmile:

I'm not sure about the whole "Kan R.Gao" without a space though.  :platquack:

Same here. I also don't like that the game features a platypus and yet it's never mentioned! I mean, come on, people! The tragic portrayal of that disgusting Australian mammal exemplifies River's unwanted uniqueness and Johnny's desire to be abnormal! Plus, it's hilarious!

I demand that the cover be replaced with a female platypus excreting mother's milk from the hollow shoots of hair on her tummy. It's only right.

Well, since the word reviews are already included, I'd say drop the numerical views on the front page (just like in the picture). Makes it less cluttered when viewing. Conclusion: Yes to this version.

EDIT: Lace Mamba's site lists the developer as "Freebirdgame" lol

This... is.... so... freaking... AWESOME!!! It almost makes me cry T.T

Interesting thing about Kan R.Gao and the fact that it indeed is listed Lace Mamba's site "developer: Freebirdgame"

Also is awesome they put there that opinion of your Auntie Reives. ^^

I like the cover, but they have mistaken one of the fan arts for an ingame art, did they?
Or is it supposed to be there?
Not that it it wouldn't fit into there, it's good. Just mentioning to prevent potential problems.

Overall impressive cover and including the soundtrack CD is a good move.

Oh right. I see it now. Don't think it can still be changed, though, since the copies have already been printed, I think.

Anyway, really cool stuff. :)

So far it seems to be only on Amazon. Dunno if there will be enough interest from shops to purchase it on the shelfs

Tell me about it!  :o

The EB Expo's coming up soon (basically E3 for Australians) and I was honestly considering going just to promote Freebirdia/TtM.  XD

Since Czech game dev is not really what it used to be (and the famous computer games/series you could count using your  hands) I'm not even sure we have something like that... We have some more or less mixed cons... Yeah that would do the trick... So... How about we design a Freebird T-shirt for people who participated on developing of TtM? I was thinking of something TtM themed on the front and new Freebird logo on the back around the shoulder-blades area (Might also be added the role the person have in Freebird games dev of TtM).
Opinions? o.O

Would you wear it though or just store it to avoid it becoming damaged?? I would prefer some sort of object, but I didn't help so it would not affect me anyway.

Also I just realized that there is only one thing above my name now, I've been demoted.

Note the "COMING SOON ! Pre-Order Now! Release date is 30-Aug-2012. This is an official Australian release. We are not able to send this item prior to the release date. " message.

It's clooooooooosed  :'( I live in Maroubra (sort of near the beach) and it's a five minute walk there. I pratically ran just then, I couldn't believe it! And I was feeling pretty groogy because I'm sick at the moment. I just hope right now that I can:
a. After Chem PRAC I can go to the EB games near uni tomorrow.

or

b. Hope PRAC finishes early and I can get back to Maroubra to check it out.
