hi, wanted to write about the russian version of the game myself but got busy with preparations to my GC visit. Yes, the translation was done by some warez group, supposingly neogames if i remember correctly. By the way, it is ukrainian group. And yes, it is sold via stores that sell pirate games (though can be downloaded for free through warez torrent sites for free - a thief stoled from thief thing). The quality of the translation is mediocre. The translation makes sence but there are grammar and spelling mistakes - can't say for the whole game, i've played through only the beginning of this variant, though played the english version from beginning to end. A really nice game, congratulations. :-) I've included it in the list of free adventure games worth seeng in the last issue of our e-zine. If you have more questions I'll gladly try to answer them. Regards.
