Reading Mansion
 
Hey all. First post. Recently I've been looking for Reading Mansion, because I remember playing it as a kid and really enjoying it. I did some research and found ... well, the developer at least. Great Wave Software. I have found no download links or anything and it's a pretty old game, so I am assuming it's sold nowhere.

Have this box art: http://www.smartkidssoftware.com/Images/ndgws4b.jpg

McGraw-Hill bought out the company at one point, and I believe they published the game after the fact. Anyways, the box art is all I have found that really describes the game. No videos or anything. It must be pretty obscure, but you never know. Maybe some of you guys will know about it.

Hmmm, this name rings a bell.

Anyway, I did a small search and came up with more scans of box and CD.

As for the game itself, no real luck. What I could find though is this. I entered "United States" as location and it listed all the libraries that supposedly have this CD. Supposing that you are from US, perhaps you can get to one of those and create ISO.

Worth trying I guess. You can call the nearest ones and check. And do share the game if you succeed.

Let us know is this any good.

I haven't found much info on the game either. Neither Great Wave Software nor McGraw Hill is an ESA member. Unavailable on Amazon.

I think we can label the game as...

[APPROVED]

Alright, I am progressively contacting local libraries to see what they have. Only time will tell if I get any results.

EDIT: Visited a local library and got it ironed out. Once I get the notification that it's shipped over, I'm going to head to the library immediately and see what I can do with the disc. Is it pretty straightforward to get an ISO out of it? Just copy/paste all the contents out of the disc?

Hey!! I stumbled across this post, and thought I'd share that I've been looking for the game forever too! Were you ever able to find it?

Uh, sorry for late reply, I never saw the edit part I guess. No, it is not just simple copy paste, but use some software instead. Just google it and you should come up with number of free solutions. For example, I use Daemon Tools Lite, which is free for personal use. You create disc image and it results with on or few files, probably one with .iso extension. That files can be used to create a original CD again.

hope that helps, and hope you got a CD or will get it soon.

So sorry for the late reply! I've been busy with school and other shenanigans.

Unfortunately the library had a couple of issues regarding interlibrary loans and their cost, so I have not gotten a hold of the CD. I think now I have enough free time to try getting it again. I will keep you all posted if there are any updates.

I have an ISO of this game. Is there still interest in it?

marko river 03-05-2016 02:12 PM

Absolutely, always for any game :)

Can you make an image file and upload it somewhere, like 4shared for example?

And welcome :)

Sounds like it could be fun to review :)
