Atari, sell Blood via Steam for download...

Since IDSoftware and many other companies re-released their oldskool MS-DOS games via Steam... and it uses DOSBox to play the game... why not Atari release Blood (1997) on Steam too? No source code changes required. Just publish it and let it be known to the public once again. Fantastic game!

Wow, I totally forgot about this thread. I think I need to post this thread to atari or monolith forums themselves ... coz it's really them who makes the decision whether to let Steam/Valve big boys take their toys

I wish Atari would release the damn source code for Blood so fans could create a modern source port off it for newer system. I use Dosbox to run Blood (got it from gog.com) but it doesn't perform that well (mouse lags and framerate is quite low). Too bad Atari is full of money hungry people; if they dont see it profiting they wont give it a thought.

Both Bloods are sold on GoG.com. I got both from them there and all the goodies GoG includes. Even if we got them on Steam, Steam is crap when it comes to old DOS games many times. GoG actually takes the time to make sure they run correctly. Steam doesn't. It just throws out what the publisher provides and it ain't always pretty.
