Discworld on CD-i is starting to become a real soap story at Black Moon with both people who claim a finished version was delivered and those who say a CD-i version simply doesn't exist. Messages like "I've been emailing one of my lead QA guys from back then, and we both agree there wasn't a CD-i version. Which should be translated as "...not associated with Psygnosis, anyway". It is entirely possible that Philips may have licensed the game and commissioned a version, but I'm afraid we didn't have anything to do with it, *if* they did." from an anonymous source doesn't make me happy, and we start to believe the CD-i version of Discworld was 'vapourware' all along. Not one person involved in programming, graphics etc etc has said 'Yes I worked on the CD-i conversion'. On the other hand there are just too many rumors of finished/near finished versions floating around, not to mention the CD-i Magazine review! Maybe it can be likened to many other CD-i conversions. Micro Machines, Creature Shock and now we know Microcosm for CD-i was converted by one man with limited support. If that's the case then a small development house [maybe freelance] were brought in to do the Philips contract.
