So I had the game boy color collection which had both Deja Vu 1 and 2 on it. I played Deja Vu 2, because I had only played Deja Vu 1 and was wondering what part 2 was like. When I played part 2 I was like oh my gosh! This game is so amazing, this game is just as good as Deja Vu 1. Then I kind of wanted a part 3 after that, well maybe not after that... But I really enjoyed the second one immensely, and I hope that someday Zojoi does create a third one. Or a cool remake of the first one/and maybe the second one too!

I remember when I was a wee lad and had no idea about how the world worked I had heard about a Deja Vu 2. I wrote a letter to Nintendo (with pen and paper!) asking if it was true and that there was a Deja Vu 2 coming. I forget the exact response I got but it was basically a polite "nope, no Deja Vu 2 here, no idea what you're talking about, go away kid". If I'd know it was available on PC way back when I may have pursued it further, but it wasn't until recently (a couple years ago) that I'd even considered looking up some nostalgia. Lo and behold, wikipedia told me there was a sequel. I'd like to play it some day, but I'm not sure I can ever find the time to play such an old game, what with all the new games that keep coming out. That's to say nothing of the relative challenge of finding someone to sell me a working copy.
Well it's precisely for that reason that we began the process of getting votes on GOG.com. If we can get GOG.com to agree to hosting DRM free copies of the original ICOM Simulations titles, then you can easily purchase and download a copy to play at home!
Hopefully they'll be willing to host multiple versions (ICOM handled all the ports in house, and different ports had different features and improvements to make the most out of the OS they were running on. The only ports back then that ICOM didn't do were the NES ports. That was done by Kemco.)
Hopefully, the success of the campaign will convince GOG.com of the interest in the MacVentures, and agree to hosting them for all the fans to enjoy!
I do hope you guys remake Deja Vu and Deja Vu 2 after Shadowgate. I had the NES version of Deja Vu and loved the music (hint hint). I never played Shadowgate that I can remember but I do remember the game itself though. I was very very young (thinking like 5 or 6 maybe? I'm 29 now) and remember seeing the NES cartridge as my Sister's and their friends played it.
I also remember all the talk surrounding it being very difficult and that one could easily die in the game if they made the wrong move lol even super early into it. Maybe that's what made me shy away all these years lol. Deja Vu though will always be the classic I remember and would like to see it re-visioned and see a new generation opened up to what games were really about back then.
