After 20 years, CD-i is getting slowly more popular thanks to the emulation scene. There are less people who look on Interactive Dreams to dig up old memories from their CD-i youth and there are more people looking here for illegal downloads of game iso files and a hacked CD-i Emulator. Following several forums shows both exist on the Internet. I suppose it's a good thing because it's the only way for CD-i to attract new people: New visitors dislike to play CD-i on their HD television, which apparently doesn't give a pretty picture. From our developers point of view, you'll never find here any links to illegal downloads, but I won't deny it's easy to find using google. cdifan: "I am aware of the illegal copy of CD-i Emulator that is floating around. The site still gets several failed activation attempts every day I won't discuss this any further except to say that it is a hacked version of an unlimited edition binary that I actually sold to someone". Our stats shows hundreds of people looking for the games, and it's increasing every month. By far the Nintendo licensed CD-i games are popular to you: Hotel Mario and Zelda's Adventure are on may peoples' wishlist according to Google's keywords. A surprising and increasing interest in our lost obscure multimedia format: Enjoy CD-i, and if you like it, you may consider supporting the CD-i scene so more releases like Frog Feast and CD-i Emulator will arrive!
