GOG.com re-releases Little Big Adventure


At the end of 1994 Frederick Raynal and his team at Adeline Software released Little Big Adventure, a unique action/adventure game. Over the years it became increasingly more difficult to get a hold on a copy of LBA. And eventually only an occasional second hand copy could be found.

Now 17 years after the initial release, GOG.com re-releases the game for the world to re-experience the wonderful world of Little Big Adventure.
For a mere $5,99 you can buy a digital copy of Little Big Adventure at GOG.com. This release has been fixed to work properly on modern systems. It contains full text and speech for English, French and German; and text-only for Italian and spanish. It's also free from any pesky DRM. So spread the word an let others experience what they have been missing out on.

Note: this is not a joke (unlike last time)

Important! For some reason the links do not work when you're on the front page. Please go to the forum thread first, and then click the link.

Btw, if you buy this game by following any of the links from the MBN you will also support the MBN a little bit.

Just bought it (through the link). I can`t help noticing that there`s a dl, called "remake tech demo". I`m still downloading the whole bundle, so I can`t say what exactly is this demo.

EDIT: Now, I think that there`s something wrong. The tech demo is actually Jasiek`s project. If they didn`t ask permission from him, I don`t think it`s very appropriate for GOG, to make profit of his demo.

LBA 1 is out on GOG!

Of course, I've already bought it.
http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/little_big_adventure

Let's advertise the game around the Internet!

Now let's speculate on the release of LBA 2 on GOG!

On another note, one of the bonuses is "remake tech demo"... I'll have to wait to get home to know what it is!

It`s Jasiek`s remake project. It`s not official remake, so I think that there`s a misunderstanding.

Bought! Of course. And by following a link from the MBN.

Would've liked to see the soundtrack as additional content though.

Didier Chanfray SARL is listed as the publisher. Seems he's got the rights.

It's been removed from GOG. It's a project by the MBN member Jasiek, but it's no longer active and has been incorporated into another project named Little Script Adventure. Main thread can be found here. Little Script Adventure forum is here.

You'll have to run the language selector application as administrator.

Did anyone have any problems with the game? It crashes on my comp, right after showing the white screen, before the Adeline logo and playing the first few tunes from the Adeline intro :S .
