Well if it meets our rules to be on site and someone has it and someone reviews it that could be here. If someone did get a copy would you be able to write us up a review for it? After playing it again for a bit that is so you can remember it. :p

It would be a pleasure.

Well I will rename this thread to the games name then move it into just the Requests forum and see if anyone can get us a copy.

Edit: I have an archive for this game if it does get approved.

The author describes it as shareware, though it seems to be closer to the current definition of freeware.

Does that apply to the full game...or is there a shareware version that is only a part of it? I don't know enough about this to say either way so you lot let us know what is going to happen and I will throw the archive up on the FTP if it is allowed. I will even name the zip "PSI10.ZIP" if needed. :p

Well, as author do not offer another, "full" copy for donators, I suppose, there is no such thing. I.e. "shareware"="full" in this case. :)

...Hmm, on the other hand, he offers "latest" copy... I don't know then.

...BTW, is it only for me, or cd.textfiles modified it's directory access to much less attractive one? (There was standard ftp-like interface before and only bare links now for me).

Now that you have an account, it would be only fair to add the entry to MobyGames as well - after all, you've identified this title thanks to them ;)

Even a short description will do (I guess this is easier/quicker done than a review).

A kind of guilty pleasure, indeed, is this writing of short descriptions for old games... almost like uploading stuff on an abandonware related website :whistling:
