Releasing NEW Games for Classic Systems!

This project has been in the works since 2002, with contracts signed and payment sent and received in 2003. When we originally licensed the games from Elite, we were told that the encryption was set so that the games would operate on any 3DO unit. Unfortunately, when the discs arrived from Europe, that was not the case, and they would only operate on development units. Unfortunately, we were not able to break the encryption.

At that time we loaned copies of the game to a partner company. They were to try and break the encryption for us. They were also not successful. During the following CES, Good Deal Games was unable to make the show due to a serious illness in the family, so we gave our booth to our partner and sent inventory to be sold at the show.

Following the show, we failed to receive our full inventory or payment, so all ties were broken, and we were no longer partners.

Last year, with help, they finally broke the encryption. They released a small batch of the titles that violated our licensing agreement with Elite. As a result, the games are now being released with a higher quality production and released at a lower price point by Good Deal Games.

Please note that everyone involved with Good Deal Games contributes on a volunteer basis. No one in the organization has ever been paid, and we do what we do for the love of the hobby. All income goes directly to operate the website, and release other classic gaming projects in which we believe.

The below scans document that Good Deal Games paid for the 3DO licenses from Elite Systems, Ltd. on January 1st and 2nd of 2003.

We thank you for
your continued support.
