Thanks for the link ''Trying to be helpful'', much appreciated.
The community gave this an overall positive thumbs up when it was first given away and there are some excellent community comments about the game from back then; plus there's a full review from Casual Games (though the reference link that I originally posted now goes to a 404 error.
w As I mentioned yesterday, I am extremely busy this weekend so have no time to post another review. You can find the communities comments about this game HERE and you can see a couple of game play videos of The gift HERE and HERE.

MerlinTheGreat,

Thank you for your support Merlin.

We've had issues with such trolls for a few years now. I tried to reason with this particular troll last year, but they reverted to type. Its best to just ignore them as they probably have issues with themselves that leads them to be so negative.

I just let their sad comments wash over. Why bother responding as that's what they are hoping for so that they can post more vitriolic/sad comments that reflect who they are. That particular person also uses a few different names now that we can ban both name and email.

Whiterabbit-uk,

"Why bother responding as that's what they are hoping for so that they can post more vitriolic/sad comments that reflect who they are."

Exactly right!
FWIW, both the UK & the US [and parts of the EU] have had, & are having serious problems with Widespread disinformation. The main way that it becomes so widespread is by using the troll's techniques -- every bit of attention magnifies their message, so what comes from a few people seems to come from sometimes many thousands [if not millions]. I know of course that this was a single troll -- not anything of magnitude -- and apologize for the maybe overblown reply, but anytime someone is seeking negative attention, here or anywhere in life, it's best to deny them that, at least publicly.

mike, Thanks. :)

Thankfully most of the comments from a particular troll are usually hidden from the community due to using a VPN (sometimes their language is like being in a barrack room full of low rank combat troops).

I really like this game! (HoGs are may favorites and I LOVE it when they are offered here!) Downloaded and installed without a hitch.
The Gift is perfect for the Halloween season. It is a mystery with a creepy edge. Only a couple of times the 'actions' didn't make sense to me, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

My Win XP PC Specifications
Windows XP Pro 32bit , Intel Core2Duo E8500 3,16Ghz ,
4 Gb memory (DDR 2) , NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 768Mb .

Downloaded and installed without a problem .
It works just fine under Windows XP .
Very nice graphics , sound , music and an interesting
(at least for me ) scenario .

About the "failed to launch program" problem .
The game is a little bit old .
So , maybe setting the compatibility to Windows XP
or Windows 7 , will solve the problem .

JEDIGEG,

Thanks for your feedback, appreciated. Not forgotten I still have a reply owed. :)

Whiterabbit-uk, Hi .
Yes , of course you have . :-)
Sorry about the delay .
I have serious problems with my computer and my wife's too .
Both machines are pretty old and should be retired but due to
my terrible financial state I cant do that for now .
So I am trying to prolong their life's until I will find some better
solution .
Because of those problems , I didn't have time to read your email .
I promise not to forget it .

JEDIGEG,
I diddn't word my last reply properly, I meant to say I owed you a fuller reply to your last email. It was very long, so I only gave a brief reply with the promise to reply later properly.

I still have a reply owed was referring to me owing you a reply, sorry for the confusion. It was a poor sentence structure.

Whiterabbit-uk, no problem .
Besides , It's true that I too owe you a reply to your last email . :-)

Installed fine on Windows 10 64-bit, no issues with video or anything but the HOG scenes are dark and I recommend playing full-screen to see better. I played this before but don't remember all the details, so I decided to try it again. Looks like a standard HOG, detective-style with some paranormal elements. I don't know if they are truly paranormal in the game, but at least it's a bit spooky looking, perfect to put you in the Halloween mood without being too scary.

Woot! This is my bread and butter right here. ^^ Mystery story ahoy!

On a serious note, I like the look of this one, and since my external HD is dead, I've lost all my games. Likely this is one I got before but hadn't finished, so big thumbs up for today's offer.

Be good Mr. Whiterabbit. Thanks for always giving your input - ye do have a life of your own and the community appreciates all you do. <3

Trying 2 B Helpful, I can't remember, seems I have to install it and see if I already played it or not.

Thank you for the hint too.

Trying 2 B Helpful, I've got it listed in my records as installed on Aug 09, 2014. I thought I'd share that in case somebody is searching and isn't able to locate it.

gamer,

Received the same message on my Windows 10 Acer laptop.

gamer,

Hi Gamer & DAdams, Go into compatibility mode and make sure the admin checkbox has been checked. If that doesn't work, check the FAQ's thread over in the Game discussion forums HERE.
If you continue to get the failed to launch message check the event logs (via the event viewer) to see if there is any further information other than 'failed to launch'. You need to check as soon as possible after the error message because the event log records everything, so you may be swamped by cryptic messages etc. If you do find more related to the issue and you can't figure what it means, please post it here. There are some excellent tech' oriented community members who may be able to suggest a fix. regards W.R.
