Game Norwegian translation

4:54am cst |
The bit of Norge you hear at the beginning of the game has been translated for us. 

Thanks go to NorwegianStallion for the help.

Here's the original...

"Larsen? Larsen??!
hhh.. hhh...
Hjelp meg...
Hjelp meg!!!
Hold deg vekk!
Hold deg vekk!!!
Slipp.... Neeeeeeiiiii!!!"

and in English:

"Larsen? Larsen??!
Oooohh.. Ooooohhh...
Oh my god
Oh my god!!
Help me...
Help me!!!
Stay away!
Stay away!!!
Let go..... Noooooooo!!!!"

Honestly, the original was so mumbled in the game, I wasn't sure it said anything at all. 

Thanks NorwegianStallion!

Project Halloween (patch 1.2) has been released!

2:52pm cst |
Black Label Games has made The Thing even better for PC gamers.

The patch comes in two files. One is the 1.2 update only. The other includes 1.1 which IS REQUIRED for 1.2 to work.

If you are in the UK, you will need the 1.2 patch only. However, you may encounter an install error. If you get a message saying you have the wrong version or something to the effect, just click 'install anyway' and you should be ok.

If you're in Germany, don't apply either of these. Your patch required some additional verification and will be released shortly.

Where can you get it? Why, from here and other fine retailers:


1.1 and 1.2 combo pack (6.7 Mb)
