But then again...that kid usually has noble intentions. I'd hate for this site to get in trouble for it. And it's not that expensive on GOG either.

You're like that kid that always reminds the teacher to dish out homework to the class.

This game is a compilation of episodes 1-3 so I'm pretty sure its illegal to keep it up for download?

Downloaded and couldn't get past the hint sheet. Not sure if game works.

It used to work but the controls don't anymore. For some reason, keen can only go left.

Just to fix some confusion, this is actually just a compilation of Episodes 1-3.
