Sunny shine on the funny side of life

The game "Sunny Shine on the Funny Side of Life", created by Rainbow Arts for Philip Morris in 1990, and featuring music by Chris Hülsbeck has now appeared on ebay.de for a very expensive price, but it's fully boxed with instructions and two disks.

The Hall of Light page about the game at http://hol.abime.net/4839 is pretty much empty. There aren't even any screenshots. Exotica also doesn't have the Hülsbeck music.

Is this game really that rare that we don't even have screenshots or the Hülsbeck soundtrack? Does anybody have it? Is it in TOSEC or CAPS?

Boris Schneider-Johne, producer of the game, apparently once mentioned that the game is utter crap but still it would be nice to see it in action and preserve it.

Anyone?

Sorry, it's Collectors4life aka BastiBS again. The price is ridiculous. No collector will buy it.

I don't know the seller (except that his prices are really ridiculous) but if the game is really that rare and if there's really nobody who has it, maybe we should consider a community effort to buy it just to preserve it in CAPS or TOSEC and get that Hülsbeck music. If many people 'donate' it wouldn't be that expensive...

But still, I can't imagine that there is nobody who has got this game...

Such rip-off merchants as BastiBS shouldn't be supported. At all!

I totally agree but it seems that so far nobody has this game so the price could also be seen as some kind of blackmail against people wanting to preserve it because it was made by the legendary Rainbow Arts and Hülsbeck. He seems to have a return policy, though, so one could just order and return it again

Well I think that some community donation project could save this title, but first I would like to know it's actually working game not fake.

Fuck that! Silly money. Someone must have a copy of this game somewhere?
Are we sure it's not on an emulation/rom site?

The only copy that I've come across was for the C64, and It's in German.

I think the Amiga version is also in German because it was a promotional game for a German audience. Still, they sold it for 59.90 Deutschmarks according to the ad shown on Hall of Light. This wasn't much cheaper than normal commercial games. Somebody suggested an alternative price on ebay now... let's hope that whoever gets his hands on this will share it with the community and especially the Hülsbeck soundtrack.

I did find an (supposedly) English version for the C64 but the disks wouldn't load.

These are fan translations from scene groups. The Lotus & Crazy crack is in Gamebase 64 and works fine as it seems.

That's the one I tried in C64 forever and it wouldn't load.
What do you use to load this crack?

I'd still prefer someone to rescue the AMIGA version of this game from the hands of this retro capitalist...

If that guy gets the money you can be sure that the tendency to ask a "ransom" for old undumped game will just ramp up even more.

Let him sit on it for a few years then let's try again, I'm sure he'll be more reasonable by then

I doubt it... he has been around for years now and all of his prices are insane and they don't change. I'd be willing to throw in 50 bucks on a community purchase just for the purpose of preserving it...

Anyone who seriously considers to pay more than 1k bucks for a crappy old Amiga game needs to question his sanity...

As I said before, it's not really about playing it but about preserving the legacy of Rainbow Arts for posterity... of course one could also abuse the guy's return policy to do that

Would still cost you £10.48 x2 shipping, and that's £20 too much for this game. The box art and disk cover scans would be more than enough to preserve this game.
