For those who still don't know about this series, you need to correct that immediately. This is one of the juggernaut series from the glory days of point-click adventures. Now of course I think its pretty clear that the developer and publisher are going all out for the release of this 20th Anniversary version of the game, but in case you didn't know here's some of the activities that you can partake in as the clock countsdown.

Personally I would be all over that Poster Tagline Contest if I were you, getting something signed by Jane Jensen would seriously kick some ass. Though if you are not a tagline kind of person just tuning into the Webseries gives you an awesome look at things.
Alright so here's the rest of the press release for your viewing pleasure, and I know that I am not alone when I say I want to get my hands on this game and see how it holds up, though I'm pretty sure that the story is still going to be solid, and with a facelift that this game has been given, I'm going to be on the edge of my seat until the end.
