News on 'The World Of CD-i'

Post by Bas » Mon Dec 12, 2005 12:37 pm

I'm very thankful the Le Monde Team showed us some great updates recently! Knowing some people who don't bother every website, here's a link to the new(est) stuff:

-Information, including screenshots and videos of RAM Raid, check it out here

-Information about a peculiar yet-to-see game on a video cd called 'Little Indian', find it here

Mainly thanks to Omegalfa for this!

Nice interview Omegalfa, do you know if that figure of 50,000 units sold per year of "Le Journal Interactif" included the bundle offer or was it a seperate deal?

Still a little mystery concerning this game included on the "Little Indian, Big City" it appears. I assume you haven't seen the game working yet from what was said during the interview?

Too bad lately the 'Le Monde' Site seems down to me at daytime the past days, or it is my work-connection? Any problems over there or updating?

Well, I don't think so.
All of us have our private life and do things for the website with the time we remain.
We are maybe working slowly at your eyes but if you look closer, you will see every week new screenshots and downloads available.
Our forum is a little bit quiet but this is an usual thing when we talk abiut inside topics outside.
As I saw, I can't talk a lot about things we are doing because I risk to see it here before there :?

it'll redirect more visitors to your site, is that a bad thing!
Have you tried the disc Omegalfa?
And what about the decision to add BIOS files to your download section?

It might be an idea to point out these changes in the forums Omegalfa, this is something I do religously now and gives an easily accessable look to your visitors of what's new.

Also as a webmaster you should be in control of the information not Vica Versa, only publish when you want it in the public domain. That way you can tease us all right up until you unleash an article :wink:

very true. Even I can't always bother viewing every section again to search for a new add, but that doesn't mean i'm not interested. Pointing out changes in the forum or a 'What's New!?' section in the side columns is a great idea. Just like the 'New Posts' shortcut!

Nice to see this 'Zeneca - Asthma Therapy' movie is online again on the new site. However, i was unable to download it, the link is bad ...

By the way, don't expect too much when you see this classified as a game, it's a trivia kind of gameplay you'll see on it. But, the clouds on the background are really impressive and nicely incorporated in the whole style of the disc. Also the audio is quite nice, very ambient.

I have inserted the title as multimedia and not into game section because of that.
About the game, I'm still waiting for the CD.
