Whatever happened to Sensible Software?

I found this cool site where they ask this question

http://www.gamesdomain.com/e32000/wh..._software.html

Cool about Cannon Fodder 3

Now I was able to check the page

Great interview , shame about the destiny of Sensible Software. At least they are still around, and it's good to hear about Jon Hare, the same can't be said about other great games developers.

Sad destiny of Sex and Drugsl too. I wish they could release the game now as freeware or something.

It is taking what Cannon Fodder is, placing it in a 3D environment and adding loads of soldier development, skills, and making it more in-depth.
War never been so less fun!

They will take the FUN out of it by adding a complex 3D environment and extra(RPGish?Strategish?)bollocks

What a shame. Cannon Fodder should NOT be Command and Conquer

Gotta agree with Akira on that count. And,like most of the good developers of that C64/Amiga era, have sadly dissappeared....
I'm a little concerned about Codemasters buying the "back catalogue" of Sensible though.

Regardless of our "old" Amiga software, if a lot of that stuff ends up being converted onto GBA, mightn't there be a risk that some men-in-suit idiot at Codemasters tries to ban the old Amiga catalogue being on the 'net. After all,it'll be virtually the same gameplay/GFX? I know it might seem silly,but hope that somewhere like BTTR gets their blessing to make sure its not an issue.

How many more times must game companies take GREAT games and feel the need to add 3D Graphics to them to "IMPROVE" them

This, I know is nothing new it been done with Worms and Lemmings.

I think Akira summed my comments up also by saying|:

Well a bit of a rant comming here!

Ohhhh Jon Hare you have fallen from grace not by your own doing but by bastard firms like m$ buying everything insight and stuff the talent, the games, the legends!

i read his interview and his comments on gamesdomain link above and i really can't believe it.

Sensible where Amiga and everything it stood for the best games and sod 3d rubbish. Am i the ONLY one sick to death of playing 3d shooters and CnC clones really it's getting boring.

I got my PC in early 95 for believe it or not for DOOM cause i had seen it on a m8's pc. what have we had since doom,quake,half life, unreal the list goes on and on. PC ppl say Ohhhh we pc users can't have that we don't like that sort of game What Shite, how many Ex / Current Amiga owners we have here 600? was a recent quote. Or Had Amiga ney Commodore 64, spectrum, ST the list is massive thousands of ppl!

Have any of you guys seen M$ Flight sim 2002 YAWN and we pc ppl like these games do we???

I Played GBA international karate the other day and now that reminds me of classic gamming, also Speedball gba and Gods is out too! can they not see these games genre's would be fantastic on Pc! Specially now since PC ain't old blue eye's anymore

Of course what about GREAT games like Meglomania (one of my all time faves) that did come out on pc but running it now forget it!
What about Wizball (Amiga version was pants but c64 Amazing!)

Emulation is keeping our Amiga's, C64, Speccy nay even ST's alive lest we not forget!

Sorry i went on a bit but it all got to me Great days shoved aside tho they didn't exist all hail HALO NOT!
