You still have a chance...just order it through Digital River. When you pay, you can download it real quick. For info, go to http://www.apogee1.com

In my mind Major Stryker is the best Apogee game ever created, and if I can't register it I want a FREEWARE version to download from somewhere. I never got a chance to register this amazing game!

We no longer distribute it via disk, but you can get it via our online store through Digital River, as mentioned above.

Go to our order info page, and there's a link towards the bottom of the page which will take you to the list of games we have available through Digital River.

Clicked "ordering" from the left hand menu, scrolled down (to the "online ordering" section) and clicked "click here". Got the DR part, but no Major Stryker. What gives ?

PS, ended up with the following URL :

I thought they did. It's not available then, as I know we deleted it. We still retain copyright, which means you can't freely download it, either.

What's the point in that? If you have copyright, you should have it available to buy. It makes no logical sense to me to have a guy and not sell it. Why do developers do this? So many games are getting discontinued, ss us gamers that are just finding out about the classics aren't able to pay them. I think games should be sold until the copyright runs out, then left for the public to freely download once the copyright is gone.

This is where that controversial "abandonware" idea came from. The developers refuse to sell it, but they want to retain the copyright on it.

I'm sure there's something I'm missing here, but what exactly is the point of keeping the copyright on it if you're not going to make money on it? To prevent sequels? To keep the technology from being reverse engineered? What?
