SSI Strategic Simulations, Inc.

Post by darxtar » Sun Dec 02, 2012 4:01 am

I was such a fan of SSI's games, especially their AD&D licenced games. From their Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance series, to games like The Summoning, Spelljammer, Ravenloft and Dark Sun, many an hour was spent immersed in their worlds. I'd love to see a future article on this powerhouse publisher of the 80's and 90's.

the excellent SSI was already covered in a previous issue.

Ah ok it must be recent then, unless I missed the article. I've read every issue up to #105 and have only seen passing references to them so far.

I had a fondness for red lightning (the game, not a drink :-))

Panzer General 2 is without a doubt my favourite PC game of all time, just a shame they made a complete balls up of Panzer General 3 - which I suspect had a touch of the Super Mario 2 about it, i.e- a completely unrelated game dressed in some convenient clothes, of course I may be just getting cynical in my old age.
