Talk:Games

Two questions:

Does it make sense to seperate follow-ups? E.g. if we take Titus Software and Crazy Cars to seperate it into Crazy Cars 1, Crazy Cars 2, Crazy Cars 3? Should it be Crazy Cars (1-3) or only Crazy Cars?

Hmm, I am not sure if there is enough content to warrant different articles. --Octoate 20:13, 7 August 2006 (CEST)
I second that. I believe series of games should be on one page... 89.210.45.22 20:18, 7 August 2006 (CEST)

There is a quite good article about Ocean Software on wikipedia.org. Would it be ok if this article is simply copied and modified a little bit?

As long as you respect the "GNU Free Documentation License" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Text_of_the_GNU_Free_Documentation_License) there shouldn't be any problem with it. --Octoate 20:13, 7 August 2006 (CEST)
Ah-hah! I meant to look for this when Prodatron suggested copying the spanish SymbOS page!!! I think the important part is this:
You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this License.
So basically it can be done... I think we should also pay attention to the changes clauses, and also give credit to the initial author... Gryzor 20:21, 7 August 2006 (CEST)

Vortex and Weeske

Why are Vortex and Weeske in this list? They never made a game but 'serious' software AFAIK. -- Ythcal 23:58, 13 August 2006 (CEST)

There was a software house called Vortex in the mid-1980s which was unrelated to the Vortex you're thinking of. Initially, they released games under their own label, but eventually released games for bigger and better known software houses, such as Gremlin and US Gold. Nich 00:16, 14 August 2006 (CEST)
