Z was so cool!! Good memories of playing this game one Chirstmas, especially those cheeky cutscenes

For so long I couldn't remember if it was on the PC or Amiga...but sadly of course, only on PC

Finally, an RTS worth playing (again). I wonder what the pricing is going to be though.

One of many games that I never got to play due to not owning a PC back then, and somehow never had the chance to try it since...

*added to wishlist*

Its a moral dilemma. I wouldn't want to pay more than 7 euros/bucks for bringing back an old game. On the other hand there are two compelling reasons why I -should- pay more than that.

- way back when I pirated it
- I very much support the effort of reviving the old games and want more of that!

Z was way too hectic for me, but I'm not an RTS guy anyway I guess they'll aim for 14.99 on Steam, but I also guess it'll turn up in a bundle for less than 5 $ within 6 months. I'll just grab it then.

Well question answered: the pricing is 7 euros. That's well worth it
