Steam!

Postby CobraA1 » Wed Jul 09, 2008 3:27 pm

Now that Tilted Mill has joined Steam, I think they should put Ceasar IV on it :) .

And allow me to register my existing copy of the game on Steam so I can run it without the CD. This whole thing about having to go and dig for your CD every time you want to play is rather annoying, and I'm glad that Steam games don't require it.

And oh, yeah - please update the game itself while you're at it. It *does* need some bugs fixes.

CotN is TMs, they bought the publishing rights back. Caesar IV, while developed by TM, belongs to Sierra.

:(

Would it be possible to buy the publishing rights from Sierra?

I wouldn't count on it. They have a habit of retaining the rights on all their games for a very very long time. They just reissued some versions of Space Quest, Kings Quest, Police Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry, which are games from the early 90s.

Besides they already sell digital download versions of the game through Trymedia and Direct2Drive.

If they do Caesar V, then they'd have to work with Sierra / VU again and Sierra / VU would still own the rights to the Caesar franchise.

Never heard of Trymedia, and considering it looks like it's the same company that makes SafeDisc, a draconian DRM platform, I'd never touch it.

I've heard of Direct2Drive, but never used it. I hate to use it just for a single game, though. Pretty much everything else I have is through Steam.
