Hi Lexxy. I found one on Ebay but it's for $600.00! I had no idea it was THAT rare!

Do not trust what people put as a price on ebay or Amazon sellers for games. The reason it's still available for sale is no one is paying that price. The only way to judge a games worth is to research what they actually sold for.

I remember playing the game way back in 1996 and it wa a quirky little game that just didn't inspire me the way Under A Killing Moon did. I will keep an eye on that $600.00 game and see if anyone reeally wants it that bad. I do remember a guy paying $100.000 for Orion Burger a few years back.

I doubt it will go anywhere near that.

The highest I've ever seen on eBay was $350 for a sealed copy.

GreyFuss,
Do you still have the game? I am going to look around my spare room to see if I might still have it and just don't remember where I put it. I might be a blast to fire it up and see whay someone feels it's so rare that they can ask $600.00 for it.

No Lexxy, I had to borrow a copy from a friend to play the game because I had no luck in obtaining one myself. What makes the game so rare is that you can't find it. I don't know how many they actually made but but they are scarce. It also adds to the rarity to find one in its original big box to. I have bid on several when I see them on Ebay but my limit is always outbid. I think I know the person who had the $600 one listed and they have tons of sealed very rare big boxed games and they let the games ride on ebay. There are a lot of deep pocket collectors from all over the world that can pay those high prices.

The game runs well on my Windows ME computer also, as long as I disable autorun. Years ago I found one on eBay for $75; times have certainly changed since then! wave

Listen if I find it I know it won't be in the original box as I threw out a lot of the boxes to save space in my den. If I find it and if anyone here wants it I would be more than happy to sell it far far less than $600.00 I remember it having sorta of quirky video of folks talking and a bracket below to click on for a response. I couldn't get into it so I put it away some where. I checked the Gaming Zone and there is no record of a trade so that means it here among the old school games I put away for later but never came back to play.

The game can be seen on You tube.
I think that it's a kind of
showing one how to play the whole game.
It's divided into ten sections
of 15 minutes.
The resolution is not that great but it
gives a nice impression what the game
is like. After seeing part one,one might
want to watch the other sections as well!
