DOS - 1994
Also available on: Amiga
Description of Reunion
Reunion is a worthy attempt from Amnesty Design (now Digital Reality) that follows in the grand tradition of space exploration / strategy games pioneered by Starflight.
The game suffers from shortcomings that are similar to Maelstrom: cumbersome interface, too much micro-management, and snail-paced story that picks up only halfway through the game. The second half of the game is considerably much better, but you'll need a lot of patience to get to that point <G> Still, this is a great, story-oriented, epic sci-fi strategy game that all armchair commanders should take a look.

There is another thing that I did not comment on in the previous comments that the keys are also everywhere in the game if you do not have the keys you are dead inside and I know from experience in my second comment it is put on your feet and I think that the keys is the original since there are others who do not get the keys

mmmm..... sorry in my previous comment i made a mistake what i was saying is a blunder and to highlight it is a great game except the difficulty

ufff I will tell you that this game is a headache and more the difficulty of time and strategy and that it is a bit of confusion if you do not do it well, death will be lurking for not making the right decision but it is a game with a high IQ because it's really difficult to play if you put the kill

I can't get the game to work under Boxer. I set the sound options to SB Pro, as NOC suggested, but it still crashes after a short Intro. But the sound works fine during the intro, so I do not think the sound is the problem. When the game crashes, it also crashes Boxer. I am running Boxer on a Mac.
Love. 2018-03-18 1 point DOS version
The atmosphere is just shrouding. You ARE exploring solar systems, trying to build, advance.
As a kid, had no chance of beating the game. As an adult... Without online help - doubt it.
Last time I went for it, got to 7th system (I think...), but there was a glitch with a missing file. It was a (.pic?) file containing the image of some alien race. Said the file is missing. It wasn't, though. Tried replacing it with an another one of the same file type and file name characteristics. Didn't work. I think the filename had "15" in it.
Anyways, love the game. Don't think I want it to be remade, it's just gonna be awful in comparison.

This game reminded me a lot of Millenia 2.2 and Deuteros which I had played before on the Amiga. To bad about the bugs the CD version had. I never finished the game because of that.

Excellent game. I had in 1995 the original CD but at that moment I remember that the PC had some issues and the game doesn't allow to save so the only way was to complete the game without saving... I took me 15 continous hours to complete the game :) but was the first game who knock me that way at that moment.
I had a question for the people of abandonware or community, if i want to play it on different browser (or PCs) were do I get the saved files?? In ask because the dosbox is generating to many errors but in browser version i can play it without problems.
Thanks in advice

Yes the REUNION should be remaked or released for android ;-) ...the game has so strong atmosphere, that you just have to fall in love with it :-) ...its a pitty that I was unable to make it till the end... I am not sure If I had a bad version or it was just a bug, but every time it ended the same way... thousands and thousands of enemy ships... the bigger was my army, the stronger was the enemy... I played first (just my estimation) 4 hours of game for 20 times... but than every time something happend :-)

This game is made by the same Hungarian studio, who created the Imperium Galactica series.

Can somebody please even just redo this game with better graphics and sounds? It would be a hit again.
Everything is well placed. You do not get lost, even if you have mining, planet and moon colonizing, army management for attacking and defending, money management and exploring to do all at the same time.
Brilliant game. Brilliant strategy. Hard. Yet interface was excellent.
Please Please remake or even Make a Reunion 2.

The second part - maybe not a sequel but similar - is the Imperium Galactica (1 and 2)

One of the most engaging and enjoyable games I ever played. Going to do it again for nostalgia's sake.
Struggled to get this working in Dosbox under Win 7 32, but a few tips:
If your sound is set to SB16 mode in Dosbox, take note of the IRQ assigned. Select the SB Pro option in Reunion and set the correct settings - should be just fine then.

Definately one of my all time favorites.
For those strugling to get it to work; use dosbox.
- Install dosbox
- Extract the rar contents to c:\reunion
- Run dosbox press alt + enter, and type the following (press enter after each line);
mount c c:\
setup (chose 2, 2, 5 in that order)
(next time you launch the game leave out the setup part).
The game may crash during the launch, just follow these steps again.

Struggling to get this to work. I've downloaded D-Fend, but the steps I use don't setup the game. Does anybody have a step by step process on how to make this work on windows 7. I loved this game when I was a kid.
