Just a bump to this thread that's at the top of the list.

DROD 4: Gunthro and the Epic Blunder is now available for pre-order. The expected release date is in less than a month. You can find the game on the Caravel Games main page.

When you pre-order, then you should register your order to your forum user account via the e-mail that gets sent you afterwards by us. This will grant you access to download the game via the "Downloads" link at the top of the forum the minute the game becomes available. Make sure to check your spam folder or PM me with your order info if you don't get it within 24 hours.

It's fine to wait to buy, too, in order to try out the demo before buying, etc. Of course, with a smoother difficulty curve in this game, the demo levels will be quick and simple for die-hard fans to breeze through. The challenge will ramp up smoothly after that point.

There will also be some significant bonus content made available to people who buy the game. This is a version 4.0 hold of SmS quality, architected by TFMurphy (who, I must say, is a genius). This hold spotlights newly added 4.0 engine game element interactions that didn't fit into the progression of the main hold. It has a great story of its own and fun, new characters too. I'd say it's probably around 6-7.5 brains in difficulty and takes a few hours to play through. Registered owners will be granted automatic download access through the SmS hold download mechanism.

Edit: I'm also going to post this on the general board so it doesn't get missed.

The bonuses are for all buyers, or are there extras for those who pre-order?

Everyone gets the bonus content. Those who pre-order can get their hands on the game right away when it's released.

What? There's no exclusive ray gun weapon when you preorder from gamestop? And exclusive "Birth of 39th Slayer" hold when you preorder from Amazon?

If you order from Best Buy you can play as Katy Perry.

Super excited.

Any word on whether this will work on OSX Lion?

I guess it will continue working on OSX Snow Leopard.

How's the Mac release coming along?
If it's not ready for the release date, will there be any way to run it on a Mac machine?

Thanks!

For Intel-powered Macs there's always WINE or a Linux VM...

(Or a Windows VM, if you happen to have a unused license lying around...)

Mike has made some good progress on the Mac builds last week, including Intel builds, but there's still a couple of bugs that need to be squashed. Mac support might not initially be present, but progress is definitely being made!

News flash:

The Caravel Games website now has updated links to BMT Micro for payment processing of all downloadable versions of the games, including a pre-order link for DROD: Gunthro and the Epic Blunder.

Make sure to reload the pages in your browser if you're not seeing an updated version of the order links.

Just in case anyone missed this in the other thread:


For anyone who is able to download, there will be interactive help available all day today (European time) at CaravelNet Chat.

*excluding the time I'm not here, obviously. :)

So join the Chat if you still haven't!

How does it come that in the hint forum several requests for solutions on GatEB rooms are posted? Downloading the game is not possible yet, I guess, watching the bar on top of the forums, or did I miss something? (since I pre-ordered the game, and got no notification about a download link).

It is possible to download and buy the game.

Go to caravelgames.com

The bar percentage was reduced yesterday as part of April Fools.
It's not been restored - it should be 100%.
