Default strategy guide

The strategy guide was recieved at amazon.com today and is ready to ship to anyone who buys it. Could this mean the game is near completion?

No. If the strategy guide is now shipping, then Prima sent a shipment of the guides to Amazon.com and provided an incorrect release date. A retailer does not usually make available a strategy guide until after the game it's written for is released.

Based on games published previously by Sierra, the manufacturing and distribution process will last 2 to 4 weeks. This process doesn't begin until the "Condition Zero Goes Gold" press release is issued.

I heard the Ritual guys got stuck on the last level. They made it too hard so they don't really know how the game ends.

Perhaps that's one of the reasons why the Ritualistic staff member purchased the guide.

Are you still hiding out at Ritual's secret underground lair? Technically, you wouldn't need to purchase the strat guide because everyone knows that the developer receives a shipment of 1000 free guides. Employees are allotted around 25 guides, to be mailed out to friends and relatives. Each guide is accompanied by an extremely persuasive letter, effectively brainwashing the reader into immediately walking like a zombie to the nearest computer software retailer. Upon arrival, the reader will purchase copies of the game for all members of his or her family, and then pass on the guide along with the letter to a close friend.

Yes, the strategy guide is available for pre-order only. The distributor states the guide is set for sale on 5 Aug 2003 as per the phone call with them (Random House).
