No.

Yes, it is the Software Farm version, not Sierra's. Basically the same, but with the Software Farm logo, not Sierra. Also there is no manual check copy protection.

Collector,

Do you know if the new Gold Rush and the classic one will be offered in a combined pack? That's what I want to get.

Means no dance on air? ;-)

Looking forward to the remake.
Already ordered the German and US special edition.

I recently got the anniversary edition. I think it'll still be fun. But I can't get over how bad the acting is (it almost makes KQ5 sound great), and the pre-rendered artwork looks like something from 1995 in quality (maybe closer to Riddle of Master Lu), and the interface is clunky. But at least its approachable for new players.

I didn't mind the acting or the graphics. I find the interface to be a little weird, but that could be because I am more used to or perhaps expecting, one that was closer to Sierra's.

The acting is pretty amazing, considering the company is VERY small, and all over seas. At least everyone still sounds American without some accent to let you know it's a foreign actor doing their best "American Accent."

You want bad voice acting and clunky interface, check out the remake of Realms of Arkania. Talk about a nightmare...

I don't think we have one on the site yet (I still have to beat the game, myself).
