that... is surprisingly silly. What a name. I can imagine one of their call centre representatives answering in a really perky voice "HI you've reached SALES CURVE INTERACTIVE!" and then the person on the other end of the line, expecting something else, laughing maniacally and hanging up. At least, that's what I'd do if someone said THAT to me over the phone... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/vlol.gif hah... okay maybe it's not that funny but to me it's just weird!

They must have realized that themselves. It took me a HECK of a long time to find the info, and it wasn't even on their official page (www.sci.co.uk). :D

OK, next one: What does "id Software" mean?

18-08-05, 19:34
Sonic Enterprise GAming industries? :confused: [EDIT: oops i seem to have lost it while googling! :D ]

Anyway, SCi was easy to find in the readme with one of my alltime favourites games: Carmageddon TDR2000. ;)

"id" in "id Software" = unconscious mind (latin, and Freud) ;)

18-08-05, 19:51
Originally, both letters were capitals (ID Software), and came from "Ideas from the Deep". The "I" was made lowercase in the release of the second Commander Keen series, and eventually the "D" was also dropped down to lowercase which changed the meaning of the company name.
