This was a nice game.
Does anyone know what has changed in the directors cut? The website doesn't tell.

@Retro-Nerd & Neil79
Thanks

It seems it has only English voiceover, but nice anyway.
On their FB page it's written that Linux and mac versions are coming soon, even better. I'll wait for that.

Why the warning? The average game nowadays is 30gb+, 3gb is peanuts.

And why "for an adventure game"? Back in the day the adventure games were the ones which took up the most closet space, spanning 10+ discs. Games which are mostly content-based will do that.

to be honest I very rarely play modern games so I would not be downloading 30+ Gb... but hey your prerogative.

I wonder if they've held on to some Classic things from the old zak.

- two headed squirrel
- The fishbowl (or the shredded fish from the sink)
- the loaf of bread
- The kazoo
- microwave with the exploded egg
- Winning lotto ticket
- Elvis

There's so much to list

It's been a while, so i can't tell what exactly. But yes, there are some things that reminds you to the old Zak.
