New CD-i website: Philips CD-i Zone (By Alan!)

>> Sunday, October 21, 2012

Here's something new: Long-time CD-i fan Alan started his very own CD-i website. In 2012, nobody needs Blogger or Black Moon anymore, but here's the first new CD-i website on a social media channel: Facebook (Why did I never think of that?)
Philips CD-i Zone on facebook triggered my attention with new pictures of rare CD-i stuff. Alan: "Welcome to ''the cd-i zone''! My aim is to bring to you everything possible about this fantastic multimedia machine which I have enjoyed for the last 18 1/2 years. So much entertainment, from games, music videos, photocds, films and documentaries. It was so far ahead of it's time, which is why it has stood the test of time."

You can find it here: Philips CD-i Zone

The promise "Check out the rarest cd-i games, unreleased games, promos, rare hardware, news, reviews, and (hopefully) interviews with publishers, developers and executives. Please feel free to get in touch - would love to hear about your Philips cd-i experiences!" may lead to a new community thanks to the huge population of Facebook, we'll see!


Second disc existence of Voyeur 2 CD-i prototype

A bag of 'old' CD-i discs surfaced today from a guy who saved them from work. I've seen a lot of CD-i demo discs and CDr version, but this time was a little different:

"Today I saved box with CD-i games from the thrash at work. I don't have much knowledge about CD-i so I don't know if there is anything really interesting. The box was a mixed bag of seemingly retail, test, beta and burned CD-r discs. I don't know all the games work, especially the CD-r versions. My 21TCDI30 player, the TV one with builtin CD-i which I also saved from the thrash at work a few years ago, seems to have some disc reading problems, even with the retail discs I tried (I need to check if there's something I can do about that)"

There were two Voyeur 2 discs on it! You may remember we found a prototype of Voyeur 2 first in 2007 but we only had the first disc. Like with Creature Shock CD-i, Voyeur 2 was a game that needed two discs. Moreover we've only see a CDR beta version. In 2010 we published some videos of the CD-i version (disc 1 only)

On these pics you see a official test disc which indicates the games was full and done, something we were never be able to test in our CDR beta version. So that's a clear fact we have today: Voyeur 2 is a complete CD-i game, full and done. I really don't understand why Philips, after all the development that was put in, didn't finish it by publishing it.
However, there's now new CD-i stuff on the horizon and hopefully we will see more of Voyeur 2 on CD-i here on Interactive Dreams soon.

To get an idea of which beta and CDR versions surfaced, here's a list:
