Pulled. Damn, that's frustrating. Added this and the other Planet H game coming out last night to my wishlist and wanted to buy them today - gone. This release and instantly pull action these days really sucks ...

@Bewi: I can't see the video. It said "This video is private". That does it mean?

As I just wrote in the Frontier Heroes thread, I bought this game even though it says age 9 - 11, 'cause I like runners and have been curious. Well, it is for kids.

But hey, if you have a kid in the foresaid age, which is interested in history and gaming, (and honestly, which kid isn't interested in history? ), this is definitely worth a try, and maybe you can even give a hand with some challenge or another ...
