CD-i regional exclusive releases

>> Monday, May 12, 2008

Many interesting releases on CD-i were only published in a specific region. Especially the home country of CD-i, The Netherlands, had quite a few unique games developed by first class CD-i developers. Have you ever played Lingo? It's a dutch word game developed by SPC Vision, the same team who was behind The Apprentice. Technically Lingo is very nice and there are more titles like this. Shroo-man, one of our members at the CD-i community, put together a list of all regional releases on CD-i. Very few people know about the german version of the medical encyclopedia: Kursbuch Gesundheit is a very impressive encyclopedia about the human body, including lots of digital video. Produced by Verlag Kiepenheuer & Witsch in 1995, I'm surprised Philips didn't go for a cheap translation of the dutch medical encylopedia (from SPC Vision), but instead they funded a completely new project. The same goes for the many regional but fully-functional encylopedias in holland (Standaard Encylopedie), USA (Compton's Encyclopedia), Germany (Bertelsmann Universal Lexikon) and France (Dictionnaire Hachette Multimédi). Personally I find those titles to be very impressive on CD-i. Bonus points if you have collected them all!

The Philips Media Interactieve Encyclopedie was also available in Belgium under the name "Standaard Interactieve Encyclopedie"; the text of most articles was based on a database from Standaard, a Belgian encyclopedia/dictionary publishing house.

That's true. I should change Netherlands to Netherlands/Belgium, or Benelux, perhaps. Do you know if games like Lingo or 'Het staat in de Sterren' were also released in Belgium?

I don't know for sure; but we do have some Belgians(?) on the forums...
