Furthermore, there is now absolutely no excuse for not adding this adventure to your collection: for those of you still adverse to digital downloads, Amanita Design have teamed up with Mamba Lace Global to offer a retail version of the game. Not only that, but it comes bundled with an impressive collection of additional goodies making it seriously good value for money!
