It's official: Scratches Director's Cut to be re-released!

And just in time for Halloween! This is it, folks: the very best version of Scratches, including everything that was ever made for the game and all bugs squashed.

It’s being released pretty much everywhere by Meridian4:

Sweet dreams! :paranoid:

UPDATE: Now available on Big Fish! http://www.bigfishgames.com/download-ga … index.html

Good stuff for haloween =)
Won’t we get confused if it has the same name as the previous release though?

No, I don’t think so… It’s been a while!

Thats great! Unfortunately there’s not much written there, not even a price.
Will other languages be included?
Will the soundtrack be included? (Ok, I already got it, so that wouldn’t be an issue for me :slight_smile: )
Will there be all the trailers, screenshots, wallpapers, teasers, etc.?
I remember there was a loooong long time ago a beta-linux port (I remember the thread was missing later in the old forum…) I guess this won’t be included, does it? But never mind.
Will the source code be included? :smiley: just kidding :wink:

Thanks. I think I will buy it in any case.

Argh! Questions overload! :?

Let’s see… price will be 10 bucks (a bargain!). Can’t say anything about the soundtrack at this point (ahem :wink:). The original trailer might be re-released, not sure about demo and other goodies. As for the long-rumoured Mac/Linux ports, don’t get your hopes up for the time being. Sorry, right now I’m 100% focused on Asylum :frowning:

But… you never know what the future might bring!

:D This makes me very happy!!!!!

Tomorrow, guys :nod: :nod: :nod:

Unfortunately, it looks like the release didn’t make it for today, but it’s very possibly going to be released within the next few days :slight_smile:

Hey now, that’s awesome. I don’t know a whole lot of (contemporary) games that have been distributed by more than one company.

Just a quick update: the new release is currently in beta-testing and so far no new problems have appeared. The release was delayed because of Windows Vista, 7 annoyances (after all, the game has to comply with the new systems) but it’s doing great now. This is going to be the must bug-less release of Scratches ever! :sunglasses:

Awesome! Of course this means I will now own 3 boxed copies of the same game, each one enhanced a bit more, but that’s okay, it makes my collection look cool. Only please, no online activation, I don’t buy those. Disk check okay though if need be. I’m a collector, and like my games independent from outside sources to install :slight_smile:

Anyway, I wish all developers took the time to update and enhance their games, even years later. Senscape I think is rare in that respect. I love this genre, and I further love to replay games years later down the road. Your willingness to update for newer OS’s is simply amazing these days.

Although, I’m running Vista Premium 64 bit, and I swear I didn’t have any trouble installing or playing the last disk-based version. I just installed it and it worked fine. Can’t speak for Win 7 yet though, as I don’t have that OS quite yet…

Best wishes to you all.

It’s finally available!!

Hmm… no :frowning:

See the first post. I meant on BigFish :wink:

Ah, I see… just tried the downloader there with Wine for the demo version, unfortunately with no luck :frowning:
I hope there will be a boxed version, too? Especially for games like Scratches I like to put something nice in my shelf. :slight_smile: (And no, a burned cd/dvd is /not/ sufficient!)

Yeah, I know… Unfortunately, I can’t tell for sure yet if there’s going to be a boxed release. Depends on the success of the digital versions first, I guess :frowning:

Take a trip to Poland (You shouldn’t have too far :wink: ), You can still find it on the shelves over here.
Thing is, it’s not even the Director’s Cut, but the first version … and I don’t suppose You see anything out of those old releases anymore, do You Agustin?

I’ve seen the first version in stores last year, I don’t remember seeing Director’s Cut here.

The original red box might become a collector’s item soon, you know! :wink:

Oh, I do hope so! I would love to be able to retire by selling my original first-run Scratches to someone in Slovakia… :slight_smile:
