I can't get this game to play. It loads, I put my name in, click play, and it crashes. EVERY TIME.

I'm having the same problem. Steam troubleshooting advice is far too advanced for me, and I can't find a way to figure out how to get the game working.

Me too. Same thing happens with DetectiveTown -- another PlayFirst game.

I hope others are aware of this problem, and don't waste time and money with PlayFirst on Steam. The games look good, tempting. But don't touch!

I contacted PlayFirst and received this response:

Solution Suggested.
Thanks for contacting PlayFirst Customer Support!

Our PC/Mac titles were not developed when Windows 7 was around either. :S We cannot guarantee that they will function on that operating system.
If you can contact Steam and have them refund your games, that would be the best option.

Sincerely,
The PlayFirst Team

Yerp this game doesn't work for me either, on Win8. Have submitted a ticket to get a refund but not hopeful - I should have checked here first!

Same problem here.

Maybe on a virtual machine...

same issue. Was this game even checked before being put up for sale?

Like Scoota says in another post, goto your steamapps and locate the game folder and remove or rename the cutscenes folder and the game works. I also noticed they used flash video for the cutscenes.

I ended up getting my money back, as a "one off goodwill gesture" (I can't remember the exact wording of the email). I was happy with that. Will be avoiding PlayFirst from now on.

forums are really worth while. I changed the cutscene name and the game is now playable! Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, I find I don't actually like the game very much!

Nightshift code and Valerie Porter used to work on my computer and now they crash as described above. Don't buy any Playfirst games. You shouldn't have to delete flash in order to play a game you paid for, it's ridiculous.
