    So, tomorrow those ex-LucasArts developers from http://www.telltalegames.com release the 2nd act of their episodic adventure game series based on Jeff Smith's "BONE" comics.

    They have listened to all the feedback from fans and have made adjustments on just about every level, including;

    Price is just US$12.99 (down from US$20)

    Thorn model redone

    Thorn & Gran'ma Ben voices recast

    Game longer than "Out from Boneville"

    Puzzles harder (though there is still an inbuild hint

    system that can be enabled)

    Minigames not a little frustrating / glitchy like in Out From Boneville.


    So, if you're a fan of those classic LucasArts adventures you should head on over to telltalegames.com tomorrow (Wed 12 April) and make the purchase - there's a downloadable version (100MB) for instand gratification and a physical version on CD you can buy.

    In fact you can download it and play for a set time without paying anything at all! Payment just unlocks the
    rest of the game.

    Also they've just released a CSI game through Ubisoft "CSI: 3 Dimensions of Murder" that is proving popular with the fans of previous CSI games.

    They're still on the design stage of the first new Sam & Max episode, but the website does feature semi regular Sam & Max comic strips drawn by Steve Purcell.

    Looking forward to Bone part 2. I wasn't quite sold on the first one till the very end, with the great story hook, when I finally got it. Then I went and looked on the net to see what the deal was with the comic storyline, and now I'm very interested to see more. And hell, I'd give Telltale my money for nothing in return if they're going to spend it on making Sam and Max games.

    I'll definetly get this. I was quite impressed with "Out from Boneville" and the improvements they've done makes this one sound even better`! :)

    Cool. The price on that has dropped from $20 to 12.99 too, and I think you get 30 minutes play in the demo before you have to unlock the rest of the game.

    Consider Out From Boneville the introduction, there are vast improvements in Cow Race (so, what I'm saying, don't expect to be blown away by Boneville, things only get better...
