Sid Meier is one of the most influential PC game developers out there, and has been for many years. In the past he’s developed classics, such as Pirates! and Silent Service, while as of late most people recognize his name from this little known series called Civilization. By now, a new era of gamers have never played many of these classic titles. Publisher Retroism, a partnership between Tommo and Night Dive Studios, is bringing retro titles to Steam starting from Sid Meier’s library.
Pirates! Gold Plus, Sid Meier’s Colonization, and Sid Meier’s Covert Action. Each is available at a 25% off discount until October 16 making them $5.24 a piece. Nabbing the Classic Explorer Pack bundle instead costs $11.24. Those who want all three titles should go for the bundle as it saves you $4.48.
True PC classic connoisseurs will note that all three titles have already been available on GOG for some time. Of course, since Steam is such a massive storefront these retro Microprose releases are set to draw attention.
