[3] A full bug-fixed version of ULTRA VIOLENT WORLDS was re-released in 2001 by Crystal Interactive on dual-format CD. It was more widely distributed than the original release, at least in the UK where it was available at PC World, Dixons, EB, and Game. Additionally, it doubled as a music album by Tim Koch and apparently was sold by independent music/online stores in Australia and Europe.
