A few others to consider are Beneath a Steel Sky and Flight of the Amazon Queen. These were originally older commercial games that have now been released as freeware. They run under ScummVM, and are available for download at www.scummvm.org .

A couple of good sources for older games are:
www.cdaccess.com
www.playinggames.bigstep.com

The Simon the Sorcerer 1 & 2 games would be right up your ally as well.

and Uru also has 3rd person abilities though it is exploration based rather than conversation/inventory. There is no game out now as beautiful & peaceful as Uru and its in 3d!

Riven is the most beautiful, immersive, and realistic of the "slideshow" point & click games. It would be a shame if you missed it. seriously

Myst & Riven games are the best of the first person games. They pretty much defined the genre which is one of the reasons Myst is such a classic. Exile was pretty good too. Also the Journeyman project trilogy & Darkfall (which I was playing right before Path of the Shell) are well worth your time if you like thoughtful games with very good puzzles. I love 'em!

From what I understand, "Master Lu" will not run under XP.

Good places to check for XP compatibility:

Riddle of Master Lu is supposed to work with DOSBox version 0.61. Check here
http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/comp_list.php?letter=t

For some reason they put it under T for The instead of R for Riddle.

Melia-

I bought the 1893 World's Fair Mystery, it is like a read game, I can find no people, no music, no nothing, except printing out answers. You are welcome to my copy if you want it, still new except for 5 minutes in my pc.
