Thanks to all of you who made the Mad Mad May Contest a hair-pulling hit!
As for how to get hold of the game if you're tempted, but not one of the lucky winners, don't be fooled by the sparsness of information on the Ethereal Darkness Interactive website. Their game, 'The Lost City of Malathedra' is still available for purchase by download.
Raymond Jacobs, owner of EDIGames, and who so kindly donated five downloads of his Adventure game so that they could be used as prizes, tells me that each of his games to date are PC compatible only (sorry Lady Kestrel), and will run fine on systems with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
EDIGames have two other games for sale on their website.
'Morning's Wrath' is a roleplaying Adventure which is featured on Moby Games: Morning's Wrath on Moby Games
and reviewed on Just Adventure here
Their other game, entitled 'Static Investigator Training', is an intriguing looking FMV Adventure billed as "A Paranormal Adventure Through the Haunted Past of the Houghton Mansion of North Adams, Massachussetts". It has its own website where, I believe, a demo can be downloaded and played before you consider buying the full game. Static Investigator Training

'The Lost City of Malathedra' itself was developed by EDIGames in 2008 and received encouraging reviews from reviewers at Gameboomers
