"Never pay more than 20 bucks for a computer game."
How laughable are these words when you look at this auction.
Yes, it is FM-TOWNS version of Zak McKracken, a game which originates from same folks whom I quoted above. And this game is being offered "just" for 599 EUR. With today's rates it goes as much as $932 USD. What amazes me even more is that shipping for this piece of art is not free, neither there is an insurance offered as a default option.
All of this is sad. Only couple of folks in ScummVM team own this game, and moreover, one of the owners is not active anymore. This makes even more difficult to squish bugs in this particular version of the game, and most of the work will go blind. Of course, we ourselves could be somewhat blamed for these rocket high prices, as this is basically the support by ScummVM what makes this item so popular on eBay.
So, never pay a grand for a computer game.
