Have you ever followed a game link and gotten the message "This item is currently unavailable in your region"?

More Sierra text games have appeared since I last posted e.g The Colonel's Bequest(Laura Bow 1) and Codename:Iceman.

The game is now available on steam ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/308000/ )

Or at http://www.goldrush-game.com/

There is a remake of the game (Gold Rush Anniversary), and a sequel is to be released soon (Gold Rush 2).
I did get the Software Farm, re-release of Gold Rush!(Classic) from Steam. I'm interested in the sequel, but not so fond of 3-D graphics.

Many times, actually. I am Russian, so I suspect I see such messages times more than anyone else (except, maybe, Brazilians).

But question was if KQ and SQ unavailable for you on Steam. Are you Chinese or New Zealand?

Greetings from Poke-man Bonk! Bonk!, Grandmaster Spectreman.

I remember some restrictions of this kind years ago (in the case it was Drakensang series - sales only for North America at the online stores as GameTap or GamePro that went bankrupt ), but I believe that this does not occur any more except when it is selling games in the form of physical media.

When selling games in digital format, it does not make the slightest sense to have this type of restriction since there is linkage to online stores such as Steam, Origin, etc. or need activation as in the case of Metaboli. It would be like shot yourself on the foot several times. It is nonsense to restrict sales to certain regions of the world when selling games in digital format.

And it is not worth mentioning the incidences of fraud, as there are reliable means of payment such as PayPal (which requires confirmation of credit card and bank account).
