Windows - 1998
Description of Midgard
Retrogamer Alexx Pym submitted this rare game :
As you can see it's not really a good game by any stretch, but regardless I was always interested by it based on this article (which is no longer live, so there's barely any records of the game ever existing at all). As such I would love the chance to have it preserved!
I spent a very long time figuring out how to get the game to run properly on modern operating systems but eventually figured it out by running the installer on Windows XP and copying over the files, though it still doesn't render properly without DgVoodoo2 copied to the install folder. You also need to mount the CD image otherwise all sound is disabled and the game runs in a different, badly optimised graphics wrapper.

I don't know why but, frankly, I felt more thrilled by playing this than newer games I've bought in the recent years. Maybe it's because it's so simple and distilled of crap my brain works better with it.
Still, I also find it horribly funny how the town has like 4 roads and none of them work, neither developers found it necessary to explain anything at all. Also there is a sprite as background at the town (some sort of tower) that it's only seeable if you go to the edge of the map. It gets invisibilized 95% of the time by the fog/drawing distance.
This game is a masterpiece.

Thanks for the upload. You may want to include the files: D3DRM.DLL and D3DRM.INF in your installed game archive. The game will complain that it can't find them otherwise. You can find them on the CD in the DirectX directory.
For Windows 10 users (and possibly others?) be sure to use DgVoodoo2 and set the compatibility of ' Midgard.exe ' to " Windows XP (Service Pack 2) ". You can reconfigure the games setup (if you want to change it after the first run) by deleting the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\BAROQUE
