A couple of thousand downloads after 24 hours (interestingly enough most of them via Apple)... thumbs up on our end. If you haven't had the chance, check out our free literary prequel to "The Raven" as a browser version, or iOS/Android App.

Is there any chance this digital prequel may be added to the added content from the Deluxe Edition? It may seem like a pointless request, but it's just that it would assure future availability, meaning, for example, that when the game's website gets closed down in the future, this piece would still be easily available for those who own the game, and would be interested in re-watching/playing this bit.
