[3] Initially, ULTRA VIOLENT WORLDS was sold via mail-order only by developer/publisher Vorlon Software upon release in mid-1998.

Interestingly, and probably without Vorlon Software's permission, Alive Mediasoft began selling the game on CD (notably, without the CDDA music tracks) in the latter half of 1999 (see HERE). The game's distribution in the UK was never officially announced on the Alive Mediasoft website nor in any of the print/online Amiga publications or news sites at the time.

[4] Reportedly, a full bug-fixed version of ULTRA VIOLENT WORLDS was re-released in 2000 by Crystal Interactive on dual-format CD (Amiga/PC).

It was more widely distributed than the original release, at least in the UK, where it was apparently available at gaming stores including PC World, Dixons, Electronics Boutique, and Game. Additionally, it doubled as a music album by the game's musician Tim Koch and, supposedly, was sold by independent music/online stores in Europe and Australia. [Source: Amiga Flame, news item, June 2000]
