GoodOldGames releases Little Big Adventure for $6

Little Big Adventure is now available on the GoodOldGames website:
http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/little_big_adventure/
For a mere 6 US Dollars it will be yours. The other Adeline games (LBA2 and Time Commando) will also be available on GOG in the near future.

GoodOldGames is a digital distributor that specializes in selling classic computer games. All the games they release have been made to work on Microsoft Windows XP and Vista and do not contain any DRM.

So it looks like our effort to get LBA on GOG has paid off. Now everybody will be able to enjoy Little Big Adventure.

I'm going to do some cross-premotion with BG&E for sale on GOG;
http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/beyond_good_and_evil
I think the synergy between the two will massively help sales!
---
Incidentaly, for those folks like me I'd just like to confirm the game does work on windows2k still, despite them not listing it.

Awesome! Feels a bit redundant to pay $6 since I already own the game, but I've just bought and downloaded it anyway. Will use it next time I want to play it. Great stuff

Well, GoG probably just did a deal with EA, as its the same game republished, I'm not sure the more complex rights issues of charecter/brand ownership come into it.

Cool, just downloaded it it's great to play this without LBAWin!

Spoiler:
It isn't available if you go to Good Old Games and search for it. Also if you look at where the link actually sends you it takes you to "http://www.magicball.net/en/gamecard/little_big_adventure/", plus trying to do a search on Good Old Games after clicking that link searches the MBN forums. Also all of the links on the page refresh the page.

I'm calling this an April Fool. Its a very impressive convincing looking one though if i'm correct.

F@@K yeah! LBA is back to business

Now I just need to make an online account. The question is: How? :P

I don't have any credit card.

WOW WOW WOW AMAZING! They are selling LBA again.


PS: LOL. I'm still not used to April Fool's jokes xD

April Fool is wonderfull!

My friend and 6 others filled the room of the coordinator (assholes who get paid fine and some kind of 2nd bosses) in school with balloons, 1 balloon was 2x2 meters, she scared the shit when she opened the door



Congratz Elmuerte for fooling this guys

OMG !!! This is the best news in years !!! I'm gonna buy my copy right away... even two (if that's actually possible). LOL

UPDATE: April Fools... :'-(

I really don't think it's funny. As ChaosFish said it's rather desperation. I'll go buy myself another copy on e-bay.
