At some point I must have sent an email to the Savareses complimenting
them on Anacapri.  Months and months later I received this:

 

PRESS RELEASE

S-G Software, a company owned and managed by Silvio & Gey
Savarese, developers of the best seller Adventure Games A Quiet
weekend in Capri
and Anacapri the
Dream
, published and distributed
in Italy, U.S., Canada, France and Russia, announces the
publication of I Misteri di Capri, containing the updated edition of
both games, actually a complete digital saga of the gorgeous island of Capri.
The new A Quiet Weekend in Capri is a major redesign of the original 2002
game, featuring compatibility with Windows7, full screen hi-res
images, ambient animations, cross fading between photos, panoramic
pictures, enhanced user interface, and mostly, new added puzzles and new
paths to explore the island of Capri while playing.

Visit the new S-G Software http://www.caprisaga.com site for details about
I Misteri di Capri, and much more... collector's edition, memorabilia,
new casual games, books, Audio CDs, personalized and unique art objects linked
to the games, free downloads... and last but not least, an invitation to
indie developers to submit their new games for publication. From game producer
alone, S-G Software is now also a
publisher!

 

These 2 games are among the very few I have chosen to keep.  Not sell, trade or lend.  I will gladly buy the updated version with new scenes, paths and puzzles.  Anything to aid in the possibiity of a new 3rd game.

Spike,   I really liked these games also.  They took me to beautiful and (at times) spectacular places I will never see and let me explore them.  And they did it with a game and challenge that made it all the more interesting.   I still have my copies of these games also.   I keep them around since I might want to go back to Capri some day and these games are the only way I will get there.

They were terrific, weren't they Kay?  My original Quiet Weekend is the original Italian/English version.  For the last 2 years I have been playing at learning Italian.  Meaning that I sometimes listen to lessons on my iPod, and I have Italian language news as one of my Google News sections.  I don't spend much time at it, but I've picked up enough to often get the gist of the news stories.  I'll keep plugging along at it.  Someday I'd like to play the game again in Italian.  That should be a hoot.

I'll buy this "remastered" version for the new paths and puzzles and will probably play it again to see what's new.  As I said, I'll buy it, too, hoping that good sales will convince the Savareses that they should make another game.

I just bought this through the link from the Savareses web site (caprisaga.com), paying with PayPal.  Easy.  The game cost €19.90 with a

€.10 discount as a first time buyer (don't know what €.10 means in $, but I don't care).  No shipping, VATS or US tax.  Total was $25.27.  Not bad for 2 English/Italian lanaguage games, digitally remastered, on DVD, with new content.  The seller is Adventure Game Shop:

http://www.adventuregameshop.c.....9e8c283140

Most of their games are full Italian, but a few are Italian/English.  The site comes in Italian and English versions.
