Wow! Nice deal! Thanks for the heads up.
For some reason I've got it in my head that Moyer's mentioned King of Dragon Pass quite fondly around here, but I may be mistaken. I personally have no idea about this game; for those who have played it, what exactly is it and is it any good? Cheers.
I've just resurrected James Sterrett's older thread about King of Dragon Pass (includes his full review), so let's go there to discuss it!

Peasants are automatically generated at a certain speed, which slows down the more units you have, but can be sped up by building more huts. Peasants are required to both gather resources and train into actual soldiers (removing their ability to gather resources), so you have to balance your economy and army. Some maps have horses, which your can capture and mount your units on for increased LoS and movement speed, or you could give them to your peasants for an economy boost.
wooot, anacrhonox here I (finally) come
Spycraft: The Great Game (or is it?) - $5.99
Released during the heyday of 'interactive movies', I still remember quite liking this one, though. Probably more due to the subject matter than anything else, really.
GOG's version most certainly does the trick :)
I initially had an issue with frame-rate not being its old silky-smooth self, but I found that running the nGlide configuration application (being the Glide wrapper GOG are using) and un-setting the vsync option solved that.
Even better, you can use that same tool to force the game to run at higher resolutions, so I'm playing at the full vertical resolution of my 1920x1080 monitor (4:3 aspect ratio), and the game runs beautifully.
My thoughts exactly, Thirith. I considered revisiting it via GOG until I recalled how just un-fun and frustrating the damn thing can be. Nostalgia is a bitch, and GOG are reaping the profits!
Cool, if I didn't already have the CD-ROM of the game I'd be on that right away. Never did play through the game though, nor do I have the expansions.
For those that don't already know, there's source ports for Shadow Warrior. One is JFSW There's also a High Resolution Pack, shown off here.
I remember playing the shareware of this game and loving that you could drive an RC car and man the forklift.
