I never did buy LBA1, I got it installed (pirated) on my computer when I was 9 years old. Only bought LBA2.

So, just bought it now from GOG.

But I'd like to know if Fred and his team are profiting from this, or if the money just goes to Activision / other publisher. Can anyone tell?

It's amazing to see LBA again and now compatible with modern systems, I'm just wondering, since it has no portuguese text, can I change the TEXT.hqr to a portuguese one without problem?

I assume they get something, given that Didier is listed under publisher/developer.

In either case, good sales here will encourage more to come

The installer just went from 128 mb (I think, around that) to 416 mb. What has changed, does anyone know?

Edit: Just found out why

Please download the game one more time and enjoy the CDA-quality music!

I apologise for the inconvenience.

I was thinking is it possible to ask them, or Didier, to release all concepts from LBA. As I see, there are very interesting pieces, like the rejected character for example.

Again, why I like the fact GOG re-released LBA 1, I'm just displeased by the fact they only re-released the European edition, and not the Japanese edition as well. There's so far no way of running the Japanese edition on a modern system, with the exception of DosBox, virtual machines, or FunnyForg's patch. LbaWin crashes with the Japanese edition. It's quite sad. Japan has about 130 million people, so it's hardly a minority language as well. Why no-one seems to care about the Japanese edition, is beyond me. And to say the Japanese voices are by far superior than either English, French or German ones.

Maybe you could complain in the GOG.com forums, they really listen. Or you could contact them.

I rather ask why you care so much about a japanese release? Or did you want to buy it as a gift to your japanese gf?
Maybe the game didn't sell well there...
Ah well, maybe they will reissue that versio now as well. I usually care if it Happens the other way around: secret of mana 2 for example

Does littlebigadventure.com belong to the MBN? Because there's a typo in the title, it says "Twisen's Adventure" instead of "Twinsen's Adventure".

They originally inclued your remake with the GOG.com release as part of the bonus content but then they removed it.

That's weird isn't it? Bought and downloading! Can't wait to see the extras!
PS: I think that for legal issues those who bought the game shouldn't post here images and wallpapers included with the game
