There exists a Japanese Fujitsu FM-Towns CD-ROM version with a 45-minute soundtrack of Eastern-sounding music by Richard Marriott.

I'm not sure when exactly the Disney Corp. got into publishing games (as opposed to simply licensing their properties to someone else) but this seems to be early in their history. Often when they're not certain if they want the Disney name on a new enterprise, they use a name like "Buena Vista" or "Touchstone" to wash their hands of it.

Hm... Why not uploading the versions separetely? You can add more than one download to a game entry, so b/w, 12' and 13' as separate downloads would be a good idea, probably.

Most likely, the files wouldn't be archived, in this case.

Sit right there, Flynn; make yourself comfortable. Remember the time we used to spend playing chess together? End of line.
