Quite likely, but looks like it's not such a high priority. I'll be waiting patiently ...

Wow, awesome find! I'm certainly looking forward to the GOG release. More Cyberpunk action is always great and DRM-free is icing on the cake. I have Beneath a Steel Sky on GOG, so I'll have to get round to playing that soon.

Loved the Amiga, but never had one growing up, I always had to play it round my friend's house. Such an amazing system with games like Flashback and Cannon Fodder.
