After the news that our own Black Moon Store will close its doors within the coming months, I was notified at a fairly new CD-i website simply named the "CD-i Shop". Pleasantly surprising this is a very complete website offering a full catalogue of software titles and hardware peripherals at very low prices. You can even buy CD-i players here. The website is very professional and every item is pictured in detail. The arrival of a new dutch CD-i initiative always gives me a warm heart, thinking of the lost "CD-i Fanclub Nederland" which was launched in 2003.
The CD-i Shop is an initiative by Richard Topelen, and it's property of DMG Media. Obviously a lot of work has been put into this, and it's just that the website is in dutch that makes it a difficult to access for non-dutch readers. Ofcourse Interactive Dreams is willing to act as a middle man to boost this website, a lovely initiative which I've spammed enough for now ;) I'll close with the dutch words of CD-i Shop: "Alle artikelen op deze site zijn GEBRUIKT! Ze zijn wel in NETTE staat, Niet goed? Geld terug garantie! PHILIPS Compact Disc Interactive, Let's make things better!"
Thinking of the CD-i Fanclub Nederland, do you remember this website by Terratron, the guy who was also behind the dutch cdi.eigenstart.nl page and who is (hopefully) still working on his CD-i Technical Archive? I'm convinced he will return to the scene in the future, the only question remains "when". One thing is for sure, Interactive Dreams will be there ;)
