"The game looks gorgeous, tells an engaging story, has fantastic voiceovers and will have you in stitches at some of its many outrageously funny moments. It’s hard to avoid clichés sometimes: Al Emmo is solid gold."

"Himalaya Studios honed their skills with their popular remakes of "King's Quest" I and II. With Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchman's Mine they show that they also have what it takes to create a successful original work."

GAME INFO

This is an enhanced edition of Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchman's Mine. The major changes are completely new vocals for the Al Emmo character (performed by new voice actor) and 2D animated cutscenes to replace the original 3D ones. There are also a plethora of other tweaks and improvements!

Current owners of the game will be given a free Steam code.

Himalaya Studios, the acclaimed team behind the popular free remakes of King's Quest 1, 2 ,3 and Quest for Glory 2, presents a totally original 2D Point & Click adventure game in the style of much-loved Sierra and LucasArts classics of yesteryear.

Al Emmo is single. He's also forty-two. But he has a plan: marry a mail-order bride and prove he's a real man! Are you ready?

Embark on an epic journey that will send our unlikely hero deep into the heart of the wild west in search of love and lost treasure said to contain inconceivable wealth! A stranger in town - a charming royal from Spain - competes for the object of Al's affections. And a looming thousand-year-old Aztec curse is bound to keep him on his toes.

Brave a horde of desert perils including excessively equipped prairie dogs, an extremist termite exterminator, arrow-happy Indians, and a liquor SO potent, you won't even remember your hangover!

Does Al have what it takes to be a cowboy? Does redemption lie within the haunted depths of the Lost Dutchman's Mine? Is Al brave enough to enter? And will his parents even miss him? You decide!

@[*UG*]Unknownenemy: Pssstt... it's already available: http://store.steampowered.com/app/296850

@Thri11Ki11: Not yet. The AGS Mac port is still a bit fiddly. We'll be looking into it eventually, though.

Cannot wait for this to go on steam
Thri11Ki11 Jul 6 @ 8:46am

Himalaya Studios  [author] May 9 @ 2:44pm 
Yep. Everyone who previously bought the game will get a key. But it might take us a little bit to get them out to every service.

LazyGuys are still running the game in a bundle. We'll be giving them the bundle keys later this week so that they can distribute them all in one hit.
