Thanks Carla.. after taking a look at the Microids site --and seeing "Nostradamus: Last Prophecy"-- (& viewing GB Latest & Upcoming for this game) I added another game to my BAAGS list .

Confusing, isn't it? crazy I'm not even sure I have the details precisely right, but that's the gist. The similar names makes a mess of understanding things, but on a practical level, it's easiest to consider Microids Canada a branch of MC2-Microids, and while the branch shut down, the head office did not. The head office still owns everything, and has started to be more active again. The development branch is still gone, though.

I know a lot of people most want to see a Still Life sequel, but really MC2-Microids becoming an active distributor is huge news in itself. They're bringing Nostradamus and Dracula 3 to North America, and Sinking Island to the U.S. That's not too shabby for a re-emergence on the scene. smile

Hi GreyFuss,
I'm with you as I would like to see Kate and Victoria again, too. They were both such great characters to play! This is the biggest reason why I like third person adventure games. And when I miss someone after playing a game, I know I have just played a great game!
To love is to be happy with!

Thanks for the update!

Do a search in the archived adventure games forum and see different opinions about the Still Life ending and the killer. Thanks.

Basically I don't care who takes up what, or who owns what, or who will develop what,..As long as they make the same games as before thumbsup

Great news. I loved their games and the idea of a Dracula 3 game is awesome!

Thanks so much for posting this--it's always great to hear that a company is coming back to life. smile

Yeah unfortunately for both characters it's almost certain that we will not be seeing them again.
