WindexGlow how are you downloading the game since it says its not yet available?



I do have a couple questions
1. will gamersgate be the ONLY way to get the game?
2. will I be able to burn the game to disc?
3. will I be able to play the game just from the disc later or will I have to connect to gamersgate to play

ok, first, you will need black plague to play.

Secondly, you can burn it to a disk, but its only the components for the installation, gamersgate use a clever security system, so no, you won't be able to put it on a cd and play.

thirdly, yes its the only place to purchase the game.

lasty, you only need gamersgate to install it, after that, you can do watever you like.

thanks. So in other words if gamersgate is down or goes out of business I lose the game I bought. I hate this kind of service because its basically like paying to borrow a game from a company. STEAM is the only electronic downloads that I have ever used or trusted.

No, you download it, (using gamersgate downloader) then from there u install it. So if gamergate crashes, you can still use it if it is installed.

As for your first question: "There might".
We are not handling sales at all for the Windows version, so we are not sure in what forms it might come available.

Contact http://www.GamersGate.com for information on the others.

RE: 2008-08 Tuesday 26, Penumbra: Requiem

yes, but, it must be only ur internet. if u burn it at ur mates house, it wont work.
U can put the stuff on a disc, then install it using gamersgate installer.. but you NEED gamersgate installer

There is a section for this in gamergate, hold on a sec...

http://www.gamersgate.com/index.php?page=page&what=faq

hope this helps, and good luck.
