Web show on Stunts at Pixelmusement
« on: November 23, 2010, 09:44:10 AM »
I was recently contacted by Kris Asick, who is doing a webcast on old DOS games. There were already 25 episodes, and guess what - the first one was about Stunts.

You can check the webcast here:

lets discuss our opinions here - Kris is looking forward to our comments.

Here is his mail quoted:

    I'm kinda mad at myself for forgetting to tell you or anyone else in the Stunts community about this...

    My name's Kris Asick and I'm the host and producer of a new web show called Ancient DOS Games, where in each episode I take a look at an old DOS game and go over how to play it, how to legally obtain it, and how to get it running on modern systems using DOSBox, source ports, or other means.

    My very first episode of Ancient DOS Games covered Stunts... I do one episode a week and am already up to Episode #25... yeah, I'm a little late in letting you know about this. Here's a link if you want to watch the review:

    The reason why I've finally remembered is because early this morning, I managed to get all of the best Stunts tracks I've ever made uploaded to my website, along with pictures and short descriptions of each of them. You can check them out here:

    I wanted to post in the forums about this, but couldn't figure out how to without registering, and it seems kinda pointless to register for a forum I'm not going to be active in. I'd greatly appreciate it if you could make a post about this on your forum, or if you could point out the magic "make a new post" button that I can't seem to find. ^_^;

    In any case, I find the community you and the other Stunts fans have built impressive. I hope you continue to have success with keeping your competitions and such going!

That is a very cool review, throughout and well-produced. I wonder if "we" (that is, the people that were around here by the time of this thread) could reply with any pertinent extra info on the freeware/abandonware concerns, at least to shift them to a lighter shade of grey (such doubts seem to be rather common among people around the Internet, BTW). 

P.S.: I think I do remember seeing two or three of those tracks by Gemini on the old Lukas Loehrer site...  :)

I'm pretty sure JTK and KHR emailed Broderbund or Mindscape about it, and they confirmed that it was freeware.
But we can't be quite sure.

KHR telephoned with DSI! And they said, yep, it's freeware, we don't care about Stunts anymore.
