hey I just visited gog.com and found they have a request games section. I searched and I found phaoroh, the other city builders are probably there as well. I though I'd share that, maybe it'd get enough votes to get rebooted. if the other city building games are on there (and this post doesn't break any rules) maybe post them here so we can all vote to get them reissued.

here's the link to phaoroh:

Hi maydayp
Great news. I've been waiting to hear that for a long time.

They also have Caesar 3 which they got about a year ago or so.

Edit:
Oh I got too excited and didn't read your post correctly, it's a wishlist from their costumers, unfortunately they don't have Pharaoh yet...

Yeah I've hoped they would since I found out about the site from the caeser4 topic.

so I though why not see if they have some way to suggest games, maybe I can put the bug in their ear. then I found the area I linked to, and was really happy to find phaoroh there. I figured sharing it here would be a great way to increase the popularity of the game on gog.com. thus increase the likelihood it will get reissued.

Here's still hoping they will soon add Pharaoh + Cleopatra

I concur
looks like it might or might not still crash though. via the forum on gog. not sure how many people (if any) are complaining about cd installations though.
mine almost crashed, scree went black but then fixed it's self. the game's also not set on any OS compatibility. which is interesting.

Great news I'm very happy for others. Luckily I can play Pharaoh from the cd, although I'm using 64 bit Win 7.

I was hoping GOG had included other, bigger screen resolutions, but that doesn't seem to be the case. 1024 x 768 is a bit small for the computer screens of today.

If there were bigger resolutions available, I might buy it from GOG.

HI Nefer and everyone!
I was also able to play original Pharaoh in WIN 7, but not with Cleo expansion. So I downloaded the game from GOG.com and it works fine!

There is a site that says it has widescreen versions for Pharaoh, but at least in my system they donīt work.

Sorry Timhotep

I had to delete your link as it's against the rules for posting here at HeavenGames as the solution circumvents the copyprotection.

Hi Timhotep! I remember you well I was just wondering if you're still around, and still playing. Great!

I haven't tried installing Cleo yet. I'm just starting to play Pharaoh after many many years, and boy do I feel rusty

What's with the relatively high prices? I recall buying Caesar 3 for a dollar around ten years ago.

They use a lot of time making the games compatible with WinXP and newer (both 32 and 64-bit) and also removes the DRM. Besides that, running the website and storage servers for the games is not free. They also have to pay the copyright holders, and the electronic money transfer solutions takes their share.

Today is City Builder day at Gog!

I'm playing Gog's Poseidon currently. It has never looked so good.

And if you are worried about the price, the games are constantly going on sale, often at 50% off. though I think most of the games are worth $10

That's good news to see. Although, GOG would be a bit harder to get funds from on that game, as it's on Steam anyway but saying that, the gog version is cheaper. Good news!

Wow I haven't checked out this thread before because I didn't know what GOG is about!! It's treasure!

Pecunia, I checked out your link and I see that C3, Pharaoh and Zeus are all compatible with Win7/8. Any idea if we have to install some kind of emulator, or did the folks at GOG modify the game to work directly with newer OSes?

Hi Duan Xuan. Nice seing you

What Brugle says + GOG are so kind that in cases were it's necessary, they include a preconfigured version of DosBOX that is installed together with the game.
