ARRGH!!! This game would have to be named the same thing as the mineral, thus bringing up a whole mess of unrelated results. Unfortunately, I'm not very experienced with using Google's power search commands, so using them didn't help very much.

Although this game now qualifies as abandonware according to Abandonia now that Atari/Infograms has left the ESA and CD Access is no longer counted as a selling source, there were so many unrelated links when I searched for Silver as to make me unsure whether I can even mark this game as approved. Could someone from the Abandonia staff help me find some potential buy-links for this game? I'd really appreciate it if someone could!

Who's to say it was picked up by another, genuinely-valid source in the meantime? (CDAccess is no longer considered a valid source.) As I don't know when last an Abandonia staff member searched for valid sources for Silver, I don't want to take any chances.

After how simple it was to get Silver to show up on Google ("silver 1999 pc game" is the precise query I used), I can confirm this game meets Abandonia's Definition of Abandonware. Therefore...

Silver - [APPROVED]

Since the game is soon to be removed from GOG, I decided to re-check its status.

Sold only on Amazon Marketplace (also on the Spanish one).

I think we can tentatively label the game as "approved". Can anyone confirm that?
