http://www.darkstar.gs/main.php?hilo=1


EDIT: 11/5/10
DarkStar now available from the DarkStar Web Site for $29.95 on 2 DL DVDs. Strange I thought it was to come on 6 DL DVD's. I got mine with an Order # 35. Wanted to be first but I slept in. Neutral What order # are you?

I thought I had the requirements but can't seem to find them. I do know that the initial release is for Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS.

Checked out their FaceBook page and it looks like the Nov 5th release is for the download and physical game (6 DL-DVD's + 1 regular DVD)
Quote :
DARKSTAR - The Interactive Movie will first be available as an online download for PC/Mac on November 5th via Strategy First and their partner sites. It will also be available at that time at www.darkstarstore.com in boxes as a physical copy and also on Amazon. The retail price will be $29.95. On February 14th 2011, COSMI Corporation will release physical copies in selected stores throughout the United States. An exact list of those stores will be made available to us later this fall.

Several overseas publishers have approached Parallax about distribution in other countries with localized content (subtitles/translations), more will be forthcoming on that situation as it develops. Based on sales of the initial PC/Mac release, a special edition with bonus content may follow, as well as a possible console version on X-Box, PS, and Wii platforms.

Whoo-hoo! Finally I can get myself a St. Valentine's Day present - candy and Darkstar in 2011! Plus Feb. might be when I'll be building my new PC!

Doesn't the story sound a bit familiar? I mean that in "Schizm 2:Chameleon" you wake up after hundreds of years in cryogenic sleep , with no memory at all and you find yourself onboard a derelict spacecraft orbiting a planet ruined by centuries of war and you find out that you are the "One" who will end the war and bring peace and...well , whatever...I 'll buy it anyway! Laughing It's been such a long time since I played a good sci-fi adventure (the last one I played was "Perry Rhodan:Myth of the Ilochim" almost two years ago).

$29.95 is a nice price given how much work has been put into DarkStar by this point and considering the packaging costs. I'll be buying a boxed version right away.

I agree with you, Lakerz. Boxed version for me, too.

$30 isn't bad, especially for a shining game like this. But since it's going to be shipped to selected stores here in the US, I don't know if it will be shipped to the local Best Buys/WalMart in West Mifflin?

I wonder if I should buy my boxed copy at Amazon in Dec/Jan or wait until Feb to buy it locally? How rare/hard to get (as boxed copy) is it going to be?

From looking at the game's website, they will be providing a list of stores that are supposed to stock the game. The website is also selling boxed copies directly in addition to digital downloads. I'll probably just buy a copy directly from the website, since that is (I think) the most profitable avenue for them.

Thank you for letting us know GreyFuss. This is really good news.

You are right lakerz buying directly from the website is the most profitable avenue for them.

Not ordering DS yet b/c # 1, I don't want to have to pay full price for a game when I can either get it much cheaper from a forum member 6 months/2 years later or trade for it, and # 2, I'm spending $25 to get a M.O. to send to Rainbowgirl for a bunch of older games, plus I just bought Azreal's Tear on Amazon several hrs. ago, so I want to save my $$ for other expenses;

and # 3, I'm still trying to acquire Secret Files 2, Black Mirror 2, and Rhem 4 hopefully via trades.

GreyFuss, I haven't ordered a copy yet, but will do in the very near future. As for the 4 missing DVDs......perhaps they figured out a way to make more money. Once the first two DVDs are finished, there will be a "To be continued..." message type ending, and then a few months later they will sell DVDs # 3 & 4 for another $29.99 followed up by the exciting finale of DVD 5 & 6 for only $29.99 more!

lol!

Looks interesting. But it will cost $15 to get it posted to me. Any thoughts on the game GreyFuss?

That was exactly my thoughts when I first got the game but I am glad to say that this is to whole game. The following is an email response to me from Jeff to that very question of whether this is the full game or not...

Quote :
NO, you got the WHOLE KITTY.

We did a round of compression that actually IMPROVED the imagery and
shrank us down from 44GB to 14, saving you money and making it run
faster.

I'M THRILLED you like DARKSTAR. Write back and tell me more once
you've gone deep. We're keeping fan accolades for an article we're
publishing soon.

My Best,

Jeff

Must be some great compression as the Install took about 20 minutes
