In search of an old game.

Getting old software/games running on older hardware.

In search of an old game.

Postby RetroLizard » 2019-6-07 @ 04:58

Good evening, Vogons! I've been reminiscing about an old game I used to play long ago. Specifically, the game in question is Gex 3D, also known as Gex: Enter the Gecko.

And I have to wonder... is the PC version non-existent or something? eBay yields no search results for the PC version, and I can't seem to find a retail copy of it anywhere else.

Am I missing something?

(Also, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post a topic like this.)

I've got a pirate (maybe stripped down?) version somewhere, so it DOES exist. AFAIR, it needed a Voodoo card.
I have traveled across the universe and through the years to find Her.

I'm selling some stuff!

Oof. Just how obscure can a particular version of an otherwise common game get? :dead:

Gex 3D for PC was released by Ubi Soft (in Europe) and Crystal Dynamics (North America) so it should exist.

I have an early 2000 Estonian pirate multi game-CD which has it.
It exists to PC.
