The repeated delays are probably a bit disappointing for you (there certainly are for us), but the last week all hell broke loose and all sorts of nasty disk failures befall my computer. This didn’t affect any of the Snakes files (have them backed up anyway), but I rarely experience such problematic malfunctions as this one and I was stuck with it for several days. The (other) unfortunate consequence is that we need an additional week to finish off Snakes.
I’m sorry that this post didn’t come a couple of days earlier, but I just wasn’t in a situation when I can freely sit in front of a computer.
In short, the unexpectedly high temperatures and some other events managed to accomplish the impossible – our team is late. Either the 8th, or the 9th August will have to do for the new release date. Meanwhile, to not have your July completely lazy, I recommend having a look at the just released freeware and 3D King’s Quest 9 (which I did) and before you know it we will definitely deliver our Snakes to keep you warm for the remainder of the holiday season. The game hasn’t been compared to Leisure Suit Larry for nothing after all.
Note: Thanks to evenwolf an Terranrich for cool ideas how to improve the Snakes logo above
Weeks, just weeks before you arrive at your personal Avalon! The big premiere is scheduled for either the 16th or the 17th of July, but will be postponed till the 31th if I notice any of you isn’t enthusiastic enough about it! So spread the word, and be seeing you there!

Jack’s typical, peaceful day in Avalon is slowly turning into a nightmare. First, he lost all his money much sooner than expected. Then he overheard a pair of deranged maniacs plotting a terrible murder. Jack feels obligated to interfere with these evil plans. Too bad he is a hopeless addict, a complete drunkard, who barely manages not to kill himself while walking around the bar and not getting a heart attack when being harassed by all sorts of weird creatures. His troubles with a weak bladder go without saying.
