German PC Game

I wrote an article on the German PC game, submitted to another site - my interest ways drawn after seeing that it featured Sandleford, which was never shown in the TV Series. Enjoy  :mallow

Really need to give this game a shot sometime. Wouldn't be the first German/other languages I don't understand PC game I've poked around with. It still strikes me as so weird that it was never released in English, being, you know, a story that is deeply English at its heart.

I'm wondering, has anyone made an effort to archive the game in video form with English subtitles? It's probably nothing groundbreaking as far as story, but I still would like to see something like that.

Also, if anyone is curious to try to get the game running for themselves, it's readily available over on Macintosh Garden. Just go to the site and search Watership Down, should come right up. Haven't tested it on Sheepshaver myself, but apparently it does run on that emulator.

I've ever wanted to play this game, but I think it's only in German. Even so, it always catches my attention to give it the opportunity. Although not my favorite game genre. That is: Point and click.   :blackberry3
I love Watership Down!
Everything is fine =) (?)

I do have a script for about the first 10 minutes of the game I posted a long time ago. I'll look for it. Wow, 6 years ago. I think the script is on my other hard drive, which right now is inaccessible since the power cable is busted
