The Dame Was Loaded can be downloaded here.

This is a full-motion-video adventure game from the 1990s that is well worth a look.

And Eric the Unready can be downloaded here. This was also originally released in the 1990s and is a very funny comedy adventure game by Bob Bates of Legend Entertainment.

Happy gaming! wave

You are welcome! I am just loving seeing these oldies but goodies popping up on GOG.

Mikael, fellow GameBoomer and the designer of the Carol Reed mysteries, always ranks The Dame Was Loaded among his favorite adventure games. I am looking forward to playing it - somehow I missed this one when it was first released. smile

I seem to remember Inland likes The Dame Was Loaded. I wishlisted it. I didn't see the other game you mentioned. I'll have to go back and check it out.

I still have the original CD version of The Dame Was Loaded, but for some reason never really got into the game. If I recall it was developed in Australia, in fact looking at the back cover of the jewel case I note that it says "Australia's Largest Ever Multimedia Production"

Eric the Unready was a very early style game - a mixture of pictures and text.
Nothing like the graphic games of today but extremely funny laugh

I just bought "The Dame" from GOG, and playing it now. I still have the original LARGE boxed version on the shelf. Why I just won't throw it away by now beats the heck out of ME, Fellow Boomers. LOL

sanford, kazzmo, could you please tell if there are indeed the subtitles in the GOG version?
They are indicated on the store page, but as far as I remember, there were no subtitles in the original disk version.
It would be very nice if GOG did manage to add them.

Iurii,
I just checked the game and there no options or ANYTHING, it seems. My GOG version has no subtitles, but if you press "F1" during the game, there is a Help menu, describing the controls, some of which are not accurate. I had to "experiment" a little to figure out the correct controls procedure.

Thanks for checking, Sandy! So, that's probably a mistake and there are no subtitles...
(Or rather, by 'text' in different languages they mean not substitles but that F1 menu.)

When playing the game How do you exit it? I cant find a way other than Alt-Enter to exit out of full screen and quitting the game that way.

Have you tried: F5, control + Q, or alt + Q? See if one of those works.
