So, many people remember back in the late 90's, that Alive Mediasoft were claiming that they were going to release Putty Squad on Amiga after System 3 didn't release it themselves.
I can confirm that Alive Mediasoft DID contact System 3 with a view to securing the rights to release the game.
However, Mark Cale REFUSED the deal, and at NO point did Alive Mediasoft have the rights or any rightful claims to be able to release Putty Squad on the Amiga.
So there you go, the mystery is solved.
Were Alive Mediasoft a bunch of charlatans? Make up your own mind
