I'm with Dian111, I can't complain if it was free. I got to the first achievement (probably for finishing the instructions) and called it a night. lol

Ok, so I did some research and it seems that you do have to get it through your xbox dashboard...kinect central and not xbox.com to get the full game for free. I still don't know for sure if you need a gold membership or not, but I don't think so. Maybe someone with a free acct can let us know for sure?

Anyway, I played today for about 45 minutes. It was kinda fun so far. Can't really complain...it was free! I couldn't figure out how to save my progress when I quit, so if anyone out there knows please let me know. I have read that it only saves after certain stages, but I don't know what that means. Could be annoying if I have to start over each time? Anyone know?

I think it's still free. When I tried to "buy" it using my computer to access my account, it showed the price of 800 points. But when I used my xbox to access it, it showed as free and that's how I did it. I looked just now and it still says "get haunt for free". I do have a gold membership, but I think it's probably free to anyone with an xbox acct? Have you tried getting it from the actual xbox "dashboard"?

On the "home" screen, you should see boxes (choices) for things like "open tray", "quick play", etc. Look at the upper right hand "box", it should say "free" at the top, has a picture of a haunted house and "kinect central" at the bottom. If you select that box, it takes you to the kinect central screen. On the first screen "spotlight", you should see some boxes here that include "most popular", "kinect sports", etc. The middle box should show the haunted house and "get haunt for free". Select that box and it should bring up the option to "buy" it. Hopefully it shows free.

I think that's how I did it and I hope that works for you. If you have already tried this and it didn't work, I apologize for the long, probably confusing post. I just remember that I had to do it through my xbox 360 to get it for free and not on my computer. Let me know if that works for you, or if you are still having trouble getting it for free. Good luck!

Has anyone downloaded this yet? I tried last night and I think it was asking for 800 points. I don't really have a gold account; I just have a standard account could that be the problem?

Thanks for any advice.

XBLA's Kinect Adventure game 'Haunt' is free for a limited time from 6/26 through 7/2. It's sort of the "Haunted Mansion ride" meets "Ghost Busters movie". There's a lot of walking or jogging in place to move around the mansion and some ducking. Not a bad option for another Kinect game plus it's free!
