And they are charging stupid amounts for it!!
Looks no diff to Amiga version, and even sounds similar!!!!
Good idea until I read you had to pay for it
Is it the same game with new speech?
If you completed the game before what is the incentive?

Did you download episode 1? It's a poorly made macromedia director application and does not even run in fullscreen or has it's own mouse pointer so you have to reduce your resolution and even then the game area is a small confined space in the middle of an ugly interface. I'm not sure if the speech is new, it certainly doesn't sound any better. It looks worse than an unofficial freeware remake would be and they are charging 60$ for it. It's the same game with same graphics but worse, cheap overall feeling. I'm sad that vulcan is doing that. :( My comment would slightly be different if 60$ wasn't involved!

Genetic Species must be my favourite from them (but they only released it ;))

Final Odyssey, Uropa, they were both nice but I don't think they were made in house! What about Tiny Troops?

All levels are difrent in a few bits. Yup new sounds
But what about the full screen Pc version of Timekeepers? Have you seen it? Played it?
And the re-launche is been a awile ago. :nervous
The prices? Yeah i think also thay are to high.
But did you know Valhalla 3D is comming?
Or what about hybird?

yes, Final Oddyssey and Uropa is very nice (cd based games..). Havent played much Tiny Troops either :(
Tested the first level some days ago, an ok game but nothing really special ... (like a dune2 cartoon clone, or something like that ...)
