I dropped by and, uh... was wondering.

The world of gaming has become increasingly immaterial, so I was wondering if there would be any merit, or if it would even be possible, to try and get Natuk (the full version) onto Steam or GOG?

I mean, I was very surprised to see that at least Nahlakh had become more immortalized (for now) at https://archive.org/details/msdos_Nahlakh_1994

Maaaaaybe.... I have pondered it (that and iPad-type versions). 

I have a bunch of stuff (other projects) to take care of first, though, and then can consider the nightmare of looking at old Windows 95 DirectX code.

Honestly, depending on how convoluted the whole process is, it might be easier to just make a sequel to Nahlakh... for whatever reason that one seemed to have more actual fans and I can draw my own art (ha ha, kidding... mostly).

If you build it they will come.  I don't know how many of them or how much money they will bring...

Hey Soulwind is back!


Though I would love to see Natuk on GOG (I  hate Steam with a passion though) I don't know how feasible this would be. Even the Spiderweb games (Avernum, Geneforge, Avadon) which are probably the most popular 'indie' CRPGs around, only really sell when the prices are severely discounted and Natuk (the original and thus far only version) was already free so you would possibly have to remake the game pretty much and may need to add some content to entice a lot of those guys to spend money on it.

But man would I love to see it happen!

I would certainly buy any iPad type of versions of Nahlakh/Natuk/POTWS!
