Notes:  

[1] Game designed by Sid Meier and Laurie Sinnett. [2] According to the technical supplement, sound FX will be missing in the game on Amiga systems with only 1Mb ram. Last known release: V1.11 (31-May-95).


[2] Sound engineer Allister Brimble explains the musician credits: "I was contracted by Microprose to arrange the PC music & sounds on Colonization to the Amiga. After creating the instrument sample set and creating the first few tunes I realized the work would not be finished in time for the tight deadline so called upon Anthony Putson to create half of the tracks using my instrument set. The credits in the game were never given correctly unfortunately."
