        Heh k well most of the ones Ive listed are 5-20 years old. the more recent ones, not too many.

        Some trivia ; "Midwinter " which was released about 1990 didnt sell very well in German speaking areas of Europe and the developers didnt know why.

        The sequel "Midwinter 2" if you like was released as "flames of freedom". The reason apparently was that Midwinter , phonetically in German.. would that be "Mitvintah"? sounds like the German for "rentboy"..
        asking:"Guten tag, haben se rentboy " didnt help sales I guess.
