Awesome to hear. :) You can read about it on the developers page at http://www.xiigames.com/resonance, but we will definitely put some info up on this site soon. :)

Just read the e-mail about this. Will this be considered an affiliate game, or marketed as a Wadjet Eye game?

It's definitely a Wadjet Eye Game. It's a publishing deal like Puzzle Bots and Gemini Rue, not an affiliate deal like Fatman or To The Moon.

OK, cool. Looking forward to reading more info on this!

When did Wadjet Eye first get involved in this project? I remember first learning about it on the xii blog months ago, and it definitely seems like an interesting idea. Especially if using the 4 heroes is done well. Also, hurray for the newsletter announcing its nearing release!

Hi!
I just heard Resonance will be released on Steam. Do we still get a no-DRM version?
Title: Re: Resonance Info?
Post by: DaveGilbert on May 09, 2012, 08:18:56 AM
Yep! It'll be released on the WEG site as per usual. :)

Excellent. :)

Congratulations on getting a deal with GOG.com! WadjetEye's games are already quite popular with the GOG community, this will get them even more attention. :)

Now the question is whether to pre-order Resonance on GOG.com or buy it directly from here ... I guess in order to support WadjetEye, the latter is preferable, but it will it be the same package here (including the soundtrack) and will the price be the same ($9.99)?

Right now, GoG is exclusively handling all the digital orders. If you want the boxed disc version (which includes a Steam key as well), then buy it from here. Once the game is launched, you can buy it from me directly again (and get a steam key!).
Title: Re: Resonance Info?
Post by: CountCant on May 17, 2012, 08:31:47 AM
Yes, but I meant once it's released. Boxes and steam keys don't hold much interest for me, I'm mainly interested in the DRM-free download and the soundtrack. The reason I'm asking is that I initially planned to get the game from your website after the release, but the package I'd get from GOG is tempting, too. And there had been some issues with a previous indie pre-order from GOG (Botanicula from Amanita games) where people who pre-ordered were surprised to find an even better offer on release day and felt kind of cheated. So I just wanted to check if the pre-order from GOG is worth it (or, in case it's the same as the package you're going to sell here, if it would make you happier to get paid directly ;) ).

Then again I don't mind waiting and comparing the offers from GOG.com and WadjetEye after release, I'd be willing to pay the extra dollar for that. ;)

How will the boxed version be shipped internationally? If it is shipped in an thick envelop, it will arrive ruined when it crosses the ocean. Is there a way to pay extra to get it packaged in a box (if that isn't the case)?
Title: Re: Resonance Info?
Post by: DaveGilbert on May 17, 2012, 01:51:43 PM
Yep! As it says on the website: "Includes international shipping."
Title: Re: Resonance Info?
Post by: mart on May 17, 2012, 01:55:15 PM
But my question was how it will be shipped (in an envelop or box?)
Title: Re: Resonance Info?
Post by: mart on May 17, 2012, 01:57:17 PM
Sorry for the misunderstanding... it is probably a "dvd box" I guess. In that case there is no problem.

If you computer is running Windows XP with a DirectX 9 compatible graphic card it should be ok  :)
The game also run on Linux using Wine ;)

Thanks for the info Dave. I received NO emails from GOG except to provide a link to my account. When I go there all there is is the game coming soon. No freebies. I guess I'm doing something wrong. Nevermind.

GoG has a support page here: http://www.gog.com/en/support/contact

If you write them and they don't write back, let me know and I'll bug them for you.

Thanks for the information! I was looking for it  :)

Just a bit of a disclaimer. I can't really give tech support for ports or emulations,  so I'd recommend testing that the demo works under Wine before you invest in the full product.
Title: Re: Resonance Info?
Post by: Tigrou on May 22, 2012, 12:09:31 PM
When will the demo be available?
Title: Re: Resonance Info?
Post by: DaveGilbert on May 22, 2012, 01:55:07 PM
The demo will be coming out in a few weeks. It's a by-product of our arrangement with GoG. When the demo comes out, I'll be sure to let everyone know!

Ok, for the record, the demo ran fine under Wine here (like most AGS games).
I also ended up playing the Chapter 1 preview just after (the demo save files weren't loadable) as I didn't know that it had the exact same game parts as the demo ; I was fooled by the file sizes, since the Chapter 1 preview appears much bigger than the demo.
