Ok.. so after spending a leisurely 5:30 A.M. Saturday morning searching the internet for a juicy game.. ( my 1 year old decided mom has had it too easy so we need to get up with the roosters ) I decided I'm sick of dark and gloomy games. I know there has to be some element of mystery/murder/Great-Great Grandfather's secret will and or Earth altering secret Pendant to be found, but can we have it in a bright and colorful setting for a change? Lately it seems like I'm getting either/or. I get great game play but it's depressing or the dialogue is original and hilarious but the game bites. I'm needing some witty banter and fushia sunsets! Ok I need a nap.

On another note... I found my Martin Mystere 'Crime Stories' game in my drawer the other day and loaded it at the office and I've actually been enjoying the heck out of it! I haven't had a good ' click it til your finger spazzes' game for a while! Everyone that reviewed it seems to dislike it but I've been having fun. ( I just got my ferrari back so give me a few more days to make a good game judgement. )

Oops... Martin just got his Ferrari back. Not me. I don't have a Ferrari. If I did I'd find a way to bribe people and get Culpa Innata early.

For older games, you can't beat Neverhood for bright and colorful. Zork Grand Inquisitoris fun as well.
Runaway is a newer game you might like, sort of like the Broken Sword games. Though I'm not a big fan of cartoony 3rd person games, I did enjoy it.

Hiya Colpet! I'm not really a fan of cartoony games either. I need to play Neverhood. Heard lots of great things about it. I think I shall go and hunt it down.

lol

I enjoyed Martin Mystere too, the first time around. The second time I tried to play it, that constant hot-spot clicking drove me plain nuts.

As for fuschia sunsets - have you played Destination Treasure Island yet? It's beautiful.

If you want a sunny tropical island then try Destination Treasure Island. The scenery is gorgeous in this game. And it is not too taxing on the brain so it makes for a leisurely play.

Other suggestions for bright, colorful games (I like those myself): Keepsake and 80 Days.

Thanks guys! Yeah I've played Treasure Island. It was very pretty, but I didn't enjoy the game very much. I have been reading some reviews on 80 days so I think I'll order that one also.

When I saw "...bright, sunny..", the title that came to mind was Anacapri: the Dream, which we've gotta wait for.

And don't laugh, but my first thought when I read your topic title, was that the message would be an announcement of Anacapri's release.

Drat!

I've been looking for that post Becky! What a nice (dare I say, serendipitous) coincedence.

However, after having read and re-read the first couple of lines of Adventure's Planet SRL's statement, I got the impression that the US & Canada aren't 'in the mix' for the June release date. The statement was confusing. Hope I got it wrong.

The really great thing is that Gey & Silvio have been kind enough to check in at GameBoomers to give us direct information.
