Inquiry about "Lemmings for Windows" Big Box Edition
« on: February 20, 2024, 09:32:36 AM »
Hello everyone,

I've recently been curious about whether the "Lemmings for Windows" edition has ever been released in a big box format. This has always been my favorite entry in the entire franchise, and I'm interested in adding it to my collection. However, I'm not sure if it was ever available in such an option.

If anyone happens to have it in their possession and would be willing to share a photo, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

On German Ebay, I found two auctions with a big box release:

https://www.ebay.de/itm/226011365265 with an opened box, 300 euros,
https://www.ebay.de/itm/285128162441 still in shrink, 450 euros.

I can't tell if these are international releases, or a German-only releases. They're also different boxes: Look at the text on the back of the box. On the opened box, it's is English-only; on the shrinkwrapped box, it's multilingual. I haven't found anything like these two by searching ebay.com for big-box Lemmings for Windows.

Language in international Lemmings releases has always been a toss-up. I remember that Lemmings 2 on CD was sold in Germany with a 4-language Lemmings 1 manual and an English-only Lemmings 2 manual. Lemmings 3 had a translated German-only manual.

Welcome to the forums!
