Clue (Windows, 1998)
Also known as: Clue: Murder at Boddy Mansion (US), Cluedo: Murder at Blackwell Grange (EU)
Clue's 1998 reincarnation brought the board game to Windows 95/98 computers, at the peak of FMV. It used standard CD audio for the music. While most overlook this reincarnation for the newer CLUE Classic, this adaptation is just as good, with leftovers between revisions to boot.
In the 2000 LightDog rerelease for Windows 2000/XP systems, the music was removed to make space for the LightDog installer and other demo programs. Although it is worth noting that the code for the music to play is still there, and if the 1998 disc is inserted, will play as normal. Perhaps the music was removed as a cost cutting measure?
Other countries had the same exact game disc, albeit with a different name in certain countries, and translations did happen between the game, which could explain its late release date. In some countries, the game is called Cluedo.
As stated above, there is a General Mills release (with LightDog trial included) that was released in many parts of the US in cereal boxes throughout the 2000-2001 quarter. Other than recoding for allowing the game to run on 32-bit systems (and cutting out the music for cost cutting) and the occasional bugfix, the game is exactly the same as the 1998 release.
