Congratulations! It's awesome to see that it's finally released and already receiving positive reviews and feedback.
I'm a bit surprised about the price though, expected 20 or more.

Yessss!  Been waiting all summer (year, really) for this one!  I cannot WAIT to get home & purchase.  I foresee some late nights ahead!  Woo-hoo!

...at the risk of getting flogged for this...will there be a walkthrough coming?  I would happily pay for a guide...:grin:  I always, always get stuck, lol.

Congratulations on the release of 3 years of hard work!!

Congratulations!!! I really enjoyed the portion of the game I saw when attempting to playtest and failing.

Can't wait to play the full game!!!

Which one was the previous best?

Oh, let's all try to guess!!!

My guess would be The Blackwell Epiphany.

Likely. Now I wonder how my favourite, Technobabylon, did. In comparison to the others, I mean.

My first thought was Technobabylon, but Blackwell Epiphany would make sense.  I think everyone was waiting & salivating for the final one to come out!  Although...Shardlight was amazing too.  I really don’t have a clue...

And congrats (again) on beating your record!!

Congrats Dave,
just bought it on GoG, that game is the best Adventure, I played in years.
Party like in Mass Effect, decisions, different characters for multipe playthroughs.
Graphics are really great, Voice acting is nearly perfect, and to show the "look at" when the cursor is over the object is a great idea.
I can't stop playing and I don't miss that the player character doesn't have voice acting!
And there are..SPOILER... Many story twists....

So everyone BUY THAT GAME... NOW...

Huge congrats with the release!

Unavowed sounds like the perfect next step in the evolution of adventure games.
And it looks really good Ben Chandler and Ivan Ulyanov!

Enjoying Shardlight at the moment, but then I will dive into this reportedly acclaimed masterpiece :)

Very good game! :-D I played through it in three settings, only stopping when I was too tired to continue.

I got stuck twice, once when my brain just couldn't understand the meaning of the word "legs" and once when I missed an exit and consequently some characters to talk to.

I love the story, the graphics, the voice-acting, basically everything, except for one thing: Why am I only allowed to take two side-kicks on missions? It just feels so arbitrary, especially because I can't go back and take someone else when it feels like he or she would be better suited for the mission. But props for the design making every mission possible to solve with the different combinations of characters.

By the way
For six months, you were possessed by a demon. For six months, you unwillingly tore a trail of bloodshed through New York City. Now, finally, you are rescued by the Unavowed - an ancient society dedicated to stopping evil.

The game says it's been a year, not six months, doesn't it? ;)
