As a fan of Chaos Engine I was really looking forward to the PC version. But after seeing the youtube videos of the PC port, it looks like no effort was put into this port.
Having played all Amiga versions of the game, the CD32 version was the best in my opinion.
The CD32 version had:
- Animated intro

- CD Audio menu and select screen music

- An instruction manual accessible within the game

- CD Audio ambient background sound effects.

And I don't know what they did with the PC versions graphics, but it just looks worse too.
And while I understand that some prefer the old ECS version. The developers could with not too much effort have included all Amiga versions of the games.
I mean if the budget was the issue, I'm sure a lot of people would have been willing to back a Kickstarter rather than seeing this half-baked attempts.
