Great and bad news. I would like to show you my appreciation for releasing the demo, new LBA content and of great quality I haven't been able to play it too much though, my netbook doesn't run some games on DosBox.
May I add a link to the download page on the LID blog? Thanks.

I would really like to see the project completed and I understand your decision, but I must say: Thank you so much for your work both on the Prequel and LBArchitect

sgk: Think of it this way: it's like a message in a bottle. In our world, we put a message inside a bottle to protect it while it travels through the oceans to reach some other island. In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

Rare... Actually in almost any country you can get a Debit Card (Not Credit), and associate with PayPal or an International Visa/MC Card.

I don't doubt you can get it, the problem is that it's not that easy to get it AND make it an international card to link with PayPal.

@Zink

Already posted it on the blog and the download section Thanks!

The demo is great! It feels really really good playing new content of LBA, thanks for taking all the trouble of at least finishing the demo! And congratulations to all who took part on it. It' just... great!
I still have to find a couple of places, like the secret door on the pharmacy and the cellar of the bar.
Yeah, it took 8 years to do this, but you have to take into account that you had to develop all the tools to do it, that takes a lot and pays off. I hope in the future the project could be uncancelled or took by another team or something.

Hello !
What a good surprise to have this demo after all these years !
Even if we definitely won't have the full version of the game, I think we just should be glad to have this nice demo with so funny dialogues !

I finished the demo and discovered every secret : I'm sure of this because I used LBArchitect to analyse the files to be sure that I discovered every maps . It was sometimes well-hidden places !!

As a member of the French website "Planète Aventure" (about adventure games), I spoke about this demo of "LBA Prequel" in an article, to spread the news outside from the MBN Network and to wake up the old fans ! This is the link : http://planete-aventure.net/article.php?id=92
And you can see the first lines on the home page of the website : http://planete-aventure.net/
I made a special thanks to Zink and Alexfont in this article, and I reiterate it in this post : thank you very very much for this, and for the hundreds of hours you spent on this game !!! This demo is the best Christmas gift I could have this years (I can say this with a little bit of advance) ! This is fantastic to play again with Twinsen (sorry, Hegesippe!) after all these years !

I really enjoyed this demo, and I hope to have new surprises like this in the coming years (maybe from LID ?).

Thank you again !

Fantastic demo! The atmosphere is absolutely LBAtastic! Sure wish there was more, a lot more, but I understand the predicament and the choice to end the project.

In other good news, this has inspired me to go for a playthrough of LBA. Enjoying it as always. It's been years now. Good times.

Also, the credits sequence was delicious and different. Nicely done!

That's indeed very cool to be able to play a new LBA game after all those years. Good job guys, too bad we won't see the full game !
I could only find 19 of the grids. Maybe a hint on how to find the credit sequence ?

Here's a hint. Go to the forest on the very top of the island. (There is a man digging for treasure, and a gigantic tree.). Now go to the grove of trees to the right of the grid, and look for a hidden passage way. Note: The passage way is hidden in the wall.

Hope this helps!

Very good!
I'm proud to have explored almost all parts of the game on my own without reading tips here.

A few observations / comments / questions:

Spoiler:

- How do I ride the horse? is this possible? also I couldn't talk to any horse.
- I still couldn't get to the tavern basement, there's a serious bug there. Hitting enter or not during dialogues did not help.
- I wish I could've met the magician who dwells in that place of the credits sequence. He'd have some interesting story to tell!
- The lighthouse was superb, nice work. There was only one strange bug, near one of the benches right at the entrance where I fell into nowhere and died, an empty tile I guess.
- Hilarious dialogues and signs!!!
- The empty cave was pretty sad. You guys could've put something there.
- Jesse, I really liked your music here! Gave a whole new atmosphere.
- The toy shop - WHY CAN'T I BUY ANY OF THOSE COOL STUFF?
- Can I has the artwork of the grobo pirate featured in the begginning? please! ^^

Also, since you guys obviously have knowledge of the right tools, could you take care of this request?

You have to get hay from the stable (do an action near the green bales), then use the hay near the horses. You can't talk to them.

- I still couldn't get to the tavern basement, there's a serious bug there. Hitting enter or not during dialogues did not help.
Do you hear the key unlocking sound?

- I wish I could've met the magician who dwells in that place of the credits sequence. He'd have some interesting story to tell!
Not possible.


- The lighthouse was superb, nice work. There was only one strange bug, near one of the benches right at the entrance where I fell into nowhere and died, an empty tile I guess.
Yes, there are some bugs.

- The toy shop - WHY CAN'T I BUY ANY OF THOSE COOL STUFF?
Probably for the same reason you can't get any of the Nitro-Mecha-Penguins in the LBA 1 secret room .

- Can I has the artwork of the grobo pirate featured in the begginning? please! ^^
The author should be asked for that (LukeNoNumbers), but he seems to be absent. Otherwise, I can send you a version with the Prequel logo, if that suits you.

I do hear the unlocking sound, the golden door opens, I went in and explored every bit (particularly the corner) and there's no place to go from there. :s
