I can't find Episode I anywhere. There is a blog post dating to May 26, 2011 where there is mention of "repacking" and that it "will be available on IndieDb/ModDb soon". However, not only is it not on IndieDB, I can't find it anywhere. I also tried finding some kind of announcement of shoving it into a memory hole for whatever reason, but could not find even that much. What's up with that?

Would you mind explaining why is that so? (Oh and, I own Burning Retribution, I just wanted an updated Episode 1 for archiving purposes.)

1. Because it was harming sales of Burning Retribution
2. Because it was redundant to have Ep1 and demo.

The purpose of Ep1 was to show people the game. Once demo emerged, it was doing a better job in introducing people to the game. You still can find Ep1 somewhere online.

Episode 1 has been merged into burning retribution. ". The best missions of Episode 1 were placed into a training campaign. The rest were split between Bonus Missions and Lost Missions campaign. "

P.S.: And I just came here to see if the DLC is available on Desura now or not, and it still isn't. :(

"Tomes of Mephistopheles"
Googled it and found the video trailer, looks good, but I don't remember this game bieng mentioned anywhere? You should increase publicity by getting it mentioned on OMG!ubuntu and phoronix.

The good: ========= -Polished: good graphics, sound and gameplay -Challenging enough without being too challenging. -Translated into a lot of languages and you can add your own. -Collaborative mission editor, also works while playing! -DRM-free -Uses GPLed darkplaces engine (also means you should be able to do lots of modding, additionally to the available in-game editor.) -Cross-platform. Runs natively (and perfectly) on GNU/Linux. The singleplayer alone is definitely worth the cheap price. If…
