    I don't remember how soldi the game mechanisms were, but hunting mammoths with machine guns was cool.

    And Midwinter...Twilight 2000. Really, it seems to me a bit of a cult motif that ebbs and flows over the years.

    A game in which none have ever surpassed its accolades. It is a shame that no game will ever skiing and driving as fun as that.
    Well, when I brought up Midwinter, I was actually thinking about how this is exactly how I would have wanted Midwinter to be, a tactical strategy game rather than an action one. I'm certainly going to give it a shot when it comes out...assuming my machine can handle it.

    The game was great (and rather hard, and with unique aesthetics, like all games by Silmarils). My father and I spent many afternoons and evenings playing that game. The game mechanics were good, but the missile carriage was a bit useless as you had to calculate the point of impact in real time, which was not easy (it looked good, though). I can't remember if you could use it to blow up rails to stop a pursuing enemy, which was something you could do with your troops IIRC, and that the enemy did at times to ambush you (or make you buy a crane + steel). Also, mammoth-mounted troops!

    The game is based on a huge French series of sci-fi novels ("La Compagnie des glaces", only the first book was translated to English), which predate "Snowpiercer".
