Seriously, the gothic games came, saw, and conquered. Web-site forums flowered into existence as the word spread, the grapevine became alive, there was revolution in the air…..but now the halcyon days are over, the heyday is no more.

Maybe Jowood is 'clutching at straws' with this latest marketing ploy and yet i suppose there will be some casual console newbie takers…time will tell how many.

The sum of the whole approach is a well proven sales tactic where a small profit from each of the sub re-releases, Gothic, Spellforce, Painkiller and Dungeon Lords etc' together can add-up to a handsome grand total. If it can be done at all…..then Jowood is the big daddy to pull it off.

i can see it now……

"hey! dad"
"yes son"
"iv'e got the gothic game on my console"
"really…how far have you got"?
"well, this Diego guy says i have to do a test of faith…and i am stuck"
"no problem son, just go to Graham, buy a map and make your way to the old mine"
"wow, dad, how did you know that?"
"er… (cough) i read about it somewhere, oh and watch out for the minecrawlers"
