It Came From The Desert - Cinemaware's unreleased SEGA action version is coming



Quote:
I could not believe what I was seeing today as Florian Merz had spotted what looked to be an updated It Came From The Desert by Cinemaware, for the Sega Megadrive/Genesis. At first I thought it was a joke, was this real? Was this some sort of trick by Cinemaware? But no it's real! Cinemaware spoke to me and confirmed the unreleased 1990 version will be released for the Holiday 2014 season as a limited edition version.

Ah, there are many bootleg copies at ebay.

Especially russian version is the cheapest (around 20 USD).
Anyway what I expect is new elements of "LIMITED edition".

Amiga users know that originally amiga version was much better than MD version,
so a few people will feel glad to hear this news,though.

And it's an horrible, horrible game.

Seriously, everyone - just STAY AWAY from it if you don't want to taint the awesomeness that ICFTD is in your memories

I'd say it's fair to try it out for free, but not to plod 60 bucks on it.

Yes it wasn't even officially retail released.

At the moment nobody knows what the limited edition will contain, if it's just the naff rom version stuck on a cartridge then yeh have a moan. But atleast wait till Cinemware releases a statement
