First game I bought.  Fell in love with this one when it first came
out for the Mac in the '90s.  Never owned it 'til Linux.

Not my style games.

Also not my style, but thoroughly enjoyed it /anyway/ (a testament to
it's greatness).

Didn't want to give the impression I haven't *bought* any LokiGames -
I currently own about 7 of 'em (though I paid little enough for 4 of
'em - roughly $10 each at EB games).  All bought while I had a
single-boot system.

Oh, another comment.  I snipped the part where you said 33% of geeks
would have to agree to make something a best-seller.  You don't *need*
us to make a best-seller, you just need us to buy enough copies that
you make profit.  However, people really actually do make money - and
tons of it - off of geeks.  Geeks all agree on one thing - they *love*
toys.  Hardware, software, whatever.  But geek toys are different from
other-people toys - and I think a gaming company should reflect that.
