http://www.amazon.com/Strife-Downlo...92695067&sr=8-1

I randomly found this while searching for Strife on Amazon, apparently you can buy and download Strife through Amazon's digital download service?!? Pretty weird!

I'd like to know who the hell listed the game on Amazon, they're simply calling themselves "Strife". It smells a little too rancid for my liking.

Whoever put it up was prescient enough to bundle it with a Chocolate Strife distro.

Sorta looks like someone is just making a buck, as I doubt Strife by "Strife" really found any rights, but I could be totally mistaken. Still, nice to see some exposure for the game.

Did they? It was released a couple of days before the first Chocolate Strife beta, so I assumed they'd have bundled it with DOSBox, though being a foreigner I'm in no position to check.

I notice someone's already questioned the game's legality on Amazon's forums, if anyone here wants to toss in their two cents worth.

I like how nothing in the description says that it's an old game from the mid-nineties.

And I do not believe for one moment that it is legit.

So... Someone finally found and got rights to distribute Strife, after being in legal limbo for ages? Only in U. S. of A.?

Seems legit

Yes, it is bundled with Chocolate Strife.

And no, I do not believe that whoever put it up actually has the distribution rights.

Is the source code included? If not it's illegal and it needs to be reported.

Any Twitter-haver around feels like mentioning this to Rogue co-founder Rich Fleider (@rogueswompy)?

It's being sold "by Digital Apps-106270-106270". Here's Shadow Warrior also being sold with the same ID. Kind of suspicious considering that (1) Shadow Warrior is by 3D Realms, not Rogue, and (2) Shadow Warrior is available for free on Steam (according to Wikipedia).

I'm guessing this is someone selling abandonware on Amazon to make a few bucks.

Yah, Steam has SW for free. Maybe this guy will throw Chasm up there too.

No, it's not included, just the .EXE and SETUP.

I get the impression kmxexii has.

@ProGamerX56 - most likely chocolate-strife.exe and chocolate-strife-setup.exe for Windows.

Call it morbid curiosity. And yes, you're correct.

I'd probably have done likewise, if I could persuade Amazon's servers that Australia is the 51st state in the union. ;)

Like I did: Overstock.com. Original game box and business reply mail included. :P

(That was a few years ago, maybe '08..)

BTW if you want to buy the game you just give it a US address, and it will let you. This works with all digital amazon games.
