Well, good news!
Someone has recently shared a whole bunch of REALmagic games 😀
I am updating the list.
I. The games that certainly exist.
Ia. DOS games
1. Dragon's Lair.
2. Space Ace.
3. Return to Zork.
4. The Horde.
6. Flash Traffic.
7. Crime Patrol.
8. Drug Wars (Crime Patrol 2).
9. Lord of the Rings.
10. Man Enough.
11. Space Pirates.
Ib. Windows games
13. Prince Interactive.
14. The Psychotron.
15. Silent Steel.
All games are available on the web, except 10, 11 and 12 (but their owners have promised to share the images).
'Entity' (#5) is a strange case as the disk image is not original and the game does not seem to work for me in MPEG mode.
'Silent Steel', while produced by Sigma Designs, is not RM-exclusive - it does support any MPEG drivers, including software ones.
II. The games that probably or possibly exist (there are pictures and trailers), but it is not proven by disk images or testimonies of the owners.
16. Cowboy Casino.
17. Video Cube - Space.
18. Return to Cyber City.
19. Brain Dead 13.
20. The Last Bounty Hunter
21. Dragon's Lair II.
22. 11th Hour.
24. Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers.
25. King's Quest VI.
26. Police Quest 4.
27. Under a Killing Moon.
I am almost certain that numbers 16 and 17 were actually published - they are just not found yet. Numbers 18 to 21 probably exist as well.
The rest are more dubious.
III. Not games.
Well, and there are 37 more titles that are not actually games! There are three interactive movies for kids, a couple of encyclopedias, but the rest are multimedia titles - collections of movie clips, professional education videos etc. I have actually bought several of them - and yes, just like 'Silent Steel' they are NOT ReelMagic exclusives and could be run on any PC with software MPEG decoder. So I won't even list them here 😀
Nice detective work and compilation!
BTW, Silent Steel also has an MPEG2 version released in DVD-ROM.
I was going to say that also - and given the DVD version, the MPEG version is much less interesting to me.
What is the Lord of the Rings game?
I don't know that I was aware of Man Enough having a reelmagic version - do you have any scans of the box or CD?
