This time, the disc is not infected with Win9x viruses to begin with!  Next Step Publishing is back under a different name, Silver Star Publishing! This one looks like an update to Total Games 2000, with even more different (and some same) bundled games! Again, this disc also carries a handful of lost freeware games made with various Clickteam products of the day.

Half-Life 2: Legacy (or as it is sometimes referred to as just "Legacy") - is an unofficial stand-alone version of Half-Life 2 (Half-Life 2 bootleg,) that features 10 levels with some parts ripped off from Half-Life 2. The "mod" is visually unimpressive, rips sections directly from Half-Life 2 and was once sold illegally for money the same way "Half-Life: Chernobyl" was sold (Piracy.) The bootleg is almost entirely in Russian, so good luck figuring out how to...
