I never called myself a collector of CD-i but now I counted over 150 titles in my own library. Some of them I've sold because people pay insane amounts of money for it, so I don't have an original copy of Zelda's Adventure and 'De Zaak van Sam' anymore. Although I don't understand why you people like the second one from the first place! But I still have brand new copies of my favorite games like Creature Shock, Atlantis: The Last Resort and The Lost Ride. Last month our own little library got its CD-i shelf and all 150 titles are now ordered alphabetically. It's so much better than having them in a carton box collecting dust. Anyway, my own CD-i player is at my sister's home where my little niece is enjoying 'The Crayon Factory' and 'Hieperdepiep, ik Lees'. Who would have thought the new generation would enjoy them again!. So yes, it's not just games I'm 'collecting'. I guess it's even the children titles and reference titles that I find even more interesting. No other console has these kind of titles in their library. Why not?
Last but not least I want to have this website nicer, but I don't have the experience to build one. Who can help me?You've all noticed I put less updates on Interactive Dreams last months, just because I didn't have time and my internet connection switched so I didn't have a home connection for a few weeks. Now that I've built up everything, I started to look ahead what I still want to do here. Interactive Dreams is far from complete in my eyes: I hope to have more time to get up reviews of my own, and I want to review every game within a few years! That's maybe too much, but thankfully I gain help of great CD-i sources like CD-i Collective and the vault of The Black Moon Project. There are some nice prototypes coverages waiting to be up, including Voyeur 2 and The Telesmurfer, which I want to show in the near future as well. I hope that will stir up the attention to CD-i again, hopefully followed by new updates of the only two active CD-i developers: CD-i Emulator and Rastersoft! And I still have good hopes that 'The World of CD-i' will return. I've spoken to Omegalfa and there are some changes coming; you'll read it here when it is announced!
