New version of Out From Boneville released 10 Nov, 2005, 22:45 / 10 comments

Now available for download is an updated version of Telltale's debut adventure Out from Boneville. Features of this new version include a different trial version (the demo is now the first 30 minutes of the game rather than ending after the locust chase), the option to skip mini-games, and the correction of some compatibility issues. This update notably addresses complaints/suggestions that fans have had with the game.

And good news for people who haven't bought the game yet: Adventure Gamers is hosting a contest where five lucky winners will get a free download of Out from Boneville. Even cooler, just for entering the contest you'll get 15% off the purchase of a Telltale game until year's end. Not sure what you're waiting for.

    How did you know about the new version? I didn't see anything about it on their website.

    Newsletter. It was also later mentioned at Adventure Gamers.

    I just wanted to get in that even those who have played and completed the game may want to download this new version because there are several little in-game tweaks (unlisted) that have been made that are worth experiencing.

    Ehm, if you download the new version, is there no risk that the setup overwrites the old version and that you lose your activation?

    Did your install the new version over the old one or on a 2nd place?

    Your activation code is still valid.

    Unlisted tweaks? Can you, err, list some?

    Don't suppose the shadows are back in?

    Nope. Some new music cues, possibly altered animations (unless I'm crazy), and when Fone wakes up at the Dragon Stair he says "Hello!" now as in the trailer. Possibly others.

    There are even some different "camera" movements. Everyone check it out.

    So, who's gonna be the first to complete the whole game in 30 minutes?

    Damn, you beat me to it by a minute.
