Backpacker in English?

http://macintoshgarden.org/games/backpacker

The Swedish version is up?? Anyone got a lead on an English one? I've looked through Ebay and Amazon to try and find an old CD but I'm not getting anywhere

Bump. I've written to a couple of the devs, some publishers - even some school libraries that have it for loaning to students - still no luck finding an English version.
Keeping an eye on Amazon and Ebay as well. The closest I ever come is Swedish versions. Was this ever actually released in English? I have the demo on a couple of old Mac magazine demo discs, but yeah. Can't find any trace of the full game.

I've only seen this in Swedish, ever.
I'll keep an eye out though

All found in English at the moment is 'Backpacker Junior' at two sites and dead t0rrents elsewhere.

Thanks for the replies. I really did sift through as much of the internet as I could handle this time, and still haven't come up with anything but the Swedish version.

Zebonka, there certainly was an English version of this game!
I can't find it anywhere as well, but the author of this screenshot (http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/backpacker/screenshots/gameShotId,...) confirmed to me he used to own it, but no more unfortunately.

An English Backpacker ISO finally got uploaded to the Internet Archive in August - the in-browser emulation is of the demo, but the ISO is of the full version. No idea if the ISO is a hybrid or just Windows-only.

@BiggerJ: Thanks for spotting that!

It is a Mac/Windows hybrid, and I think it will be finding a home here shortly, too Smile
