It's still bullshit. Turrican I & II never sold like they should normally have, because they never supported the product like it was meant to be.

And piracy was certainly not the problem. As said, the publishers sold tons of original games on CPC.

Turrican I and II cost back in the day in france was 150 francs (disk) and 99 francs (tape).

Those games were extremely promising, praised in all the magazines, and Rainbow Arts just fucking failed to sell them correctly.

I'll pass on the turrican I first CPC disk batch failed by Rainbow Arts, showing their amateurism on such an AAA product.

This is the best wrong way to start selling a great game, just fuck up its manufacturing !

And then go puke at the face of the coders for your own faults.....

If it's not cynism at its best, i don't know what it is.
