Yes, bring this ones back. They are classics.
I was just looking for these in the catalogue. While I love the Bioware games, the SSI Gold Box, in particular, Pools of Radiance was a big part of my childhood gaming experience.
I really wish to see SSI's Gold box games here on GOG.
I was just writing to Gog.com in hopes they would add these to their list of games and luckily I searched Google and found this thread and decided to add my vote for this collection as well and they would all be a definite buy for me too.
Used to have all of these on my late, much-lamented Amiga. Would leap at versions that run on current Windows hardware. Please, GOG, make it happen.
This would be a snap buy. To have a nice, cracked version of these games without having to use a shell would be nirvana.
Please, this. I remember buying them all once in a neat CD that had all of them, the whole Pool of Radiance Saga alongside the Krynn ones, it was bliss, sadly I lost it :(
Yeah, I had a lot of these, but the disks all went bad eventually and I currently have none (not that I currently have a drive that I could insert the disks in anyway). Would get again just so I could finally beat Eye of the Beholder.
Classics! GOG cannot really be "Good Old Games" without this series...
These really do need to be on GoG. A compilation set was released some years ago, but had issues running newer machines and did not include the Dragonlance games.
to add to the challenges of getting these games on GoG, it would likely have to be without the Dragonlance trilogy. Hasbro has been hinting that various other universes might be getting added to their MMO Dungeons and Dragons online besides Forgotten Realms and Ebberon, however they do not own the copyright to the Dragonlance series., so that world cannot be added. I believe the original authors of the dragonlance books are the actual IP owners currently, but that has been under dispute for a long time.
AdmiralBarrett, unless I'm mistaken, Wizards of the Coast is under Hasbro. I believe to bring these games, GOG would have to find a way to bring Hasbro and Ubisoft together to work out an re-release arrangement. Tough for sure, but given that we saw re-releases of Planescape Torment and the other Infinity Engine games, I think they could pull it off. We have both Ubisoft and Hasbro here, too.
As much as I would love to see these games re-released, All properties of SSI belong to Ubisoft. Likewise, the license from the defunct TSR no longer exists and Wizards of the Coast is already dancing around with Atari and other companies over licensing D&D games. I do not see any signs that GOG will have the opportunity to re-release these classics.
These games were the reason we got a 5 1/4 floppy drive for our C64. I would still be using it if the VIC-II on my 64 hadn't blown about 7 years ago. I would certainly buy these without thinking twice.
I would buy these the very minute I learned GoG had them.
also the later games like dungeon hack strong hold ect
These definitely belong on GOG!
Would anyone buy Stone Prophet? I remember having hours of fun on this one. I can only play it if I mount a drive in dosbox.
I remember a long time ago when first playing one of the games, I wasn't sure if I would like it. But after playing the one and then the other 11 odd ones that were available at the time (I think you could port over your characters in some of those) I have to say it was gaming bliss. Even the not so "critically acclaimed" ones.
I remember buying The Forgotten Realms Archives box set. Most of the games required codes from their manuals as a primitive form of DRM. Manuals which weren't included in the collection, rendering them unplayable. I'd like to finally be able to play them.
I would buy this in a heartbeat, I would like to see them all SSI: Pool Of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades, and Pool of Darkness...Both Savage Frontiers, Buck Rodgers Countdown to Doomsday,... Champions of Krynn, Death Knights of Krynn and Dark Queen of Kyrnn. I so miss these and still have all guides, wheels, and clue books. Aemenyn if we can have the bioware D&D games I do not see why that would be an issue to be honest neither WOC or Atari care about the SSI versions or they would be remade or rereleased. I belive neither can have a say since SSI aquired it before WOC or Atari bought the rights.
Wow those names bring back memories :D Would buy in a heartbeat!
Yeah would love these D&D games running on my pc without the need to install DOS.
Nearly impossible for the average game player to get running on todays PC's. An updated release would be awesome
Isn't this one of those cases where it can get a bit messy with the license? If I'm right, Ubisoft owns the games, since they aquired SSI, but (obviously) they don't have the right to sell D&D games.
I spent a ton of hours on Pool of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Hillsfar, Buck Rogers XXVC Countdown to Doomsday and Buck Rogers XXVC Matrix Cubed. SSI was one of my favorite game companies back in the day! Get this one made PLEASE!
I can not find these anywhere online and would gladly buy almost all of them if you could just get them.
I have many of these on disc, but would still pay again for gog to setup the installer.
I want to have these games. So please GOG, offer and sell them!!!
Just make this happen! I will give you my demonic spawn as sacrifice to the Eldritch GoG Gods if this happens. I even had a compilation of the Gold Box series in a CD I misplaced years ago :( . Just make it happen! Pretty Please?
An absolute must have. All the D&D/Buck Rogers games, and even classics like Demons Winter, and the strategy titles. SSI produced a string of great games, most of which I''d still play over most of today's titles.
Yes!! I was actually surprised when I didn't see Dark Sun 1 & 2 and Al Qadim: The Genie's Curse on GOG. I would very much buy these again (I bought them about 14 years ago) to use with DOSBox. Especially if they came all bundled in one package with all patches :)
I loved those games. I Started with Pool of Radiance and was hooked. Also, the Buck Rogers games. Great Times! And thanks for reminding me about Dark Sun.....very cool game! Instant buy.
YES! These games are classics! Include the forgotten realms, krynn trilogy and savage frontier games please!
Agreed, Cutterjohn, but maybe if they get at least the old Gold Box games up, any success will encourage the addition of the rest of the SSI catalog? Regardless, it's a start (possibly). =)
I'd like this even more if it were simply entitled the ENTIRE SSI catalog, and not merely their AD&D games as they DID make their own good RPGs/strat games before and after gold box et. al.
How does this not have more votes?
Maybe the title should be: "SSI Gold Box AD&D Games," as that's how the series was more commonly known.
Not all of them were good, but the Eye of the Beholder games were great.
Who has the rights to these games now? I imagine it's not Hasbro, or they'd already be here.
These classics MUST become a part of GOG :) Adventures are still being created right now using FRUA.
Does this include Dark sun and Dark Sun: Wake of the Ravager?
