I've heard this game mentioned many times, but assumed that as it was a fairly old game it wouldn't play on XP without a lot of tweaking. I'm glad to read that's not the case. smile Think I'll keep a lookout for this one. Thanks for the recommendation, Marian!

Thanks everyone for all your help. That is good it is a point and click. I have tried the keyboard and with my fingers it is no go. I will look for these games.

Thanks so much

All this talk about Shivers makes me want to go and dig out my copy and play again. I'm with Syd: my first game was Myst and the next was Shivers. What a great way to start many years of adventure game playing!

Thanks Marion. This post was so convincing I did go to Amazon and ordered it. I hope I like it as much as everyone here did.

Hi, Sly One!

Let me add my vote for one of the best games I've ever played. The atmosphere is wonderful and once you catch your first Beastie (Ixupi), you'll be hooked!

Have fun!

Susan

That's great, Sly One! bravo

Really, I can't imagine your not enjoying this game if you like puzzles and an unusual and mysterious atmosphere. Please let me know how you like it. Take your time with it, and enjoy! smile wave

I've played it twice and II once. Want to go back and play II again sometime.

The Dig was a great game. I wonder if it will play on XP?

That's great, Rushes!! happydance Ebay has been mighty good to me. What would we do without that worldwide yard sale when it comes to getting older games. lol

I hope you enjoy the game. wave

Your mention of Shivers re-kindled my interest, so I 'dug' out that big ol' box, dusted it off & put it in the lineup of games to play (still had my receipt for $9.99 from CompUSA, October 1997).

I can't even remember the game environment, but I do know I didn't finish it. Was I too scared?... did it glitch up on me?... was I simply too dumb? I guess I'll find out when I play it again (it'll be like playing a brand new game... yippee!).

The big, 8½ x 10½ inch box came with a very informative, 96-page booklet, complete with Walkthrough. On its back cover is the announcement for the upcoming sequel, Shivers II, coming in Spring 1997, followed by this teaser:
Quote:
"It seemed like a friendly town at first. At least that's why Mike and my friends had picked Cyclone as the backdrop for their rock video. But by the time I arrived on the scene, things got strange. Not one person would tell me where they were. My only clues led to the cave dwellings out in the desert. I know I had to find them. My mind raced as I drove to the caves.

I swallowed hard as I entered the forboding darkness. I had only taken two steps when the wailing echos deafened me. The walls closed in on me from all directions....."

Don't think I got that sequel, but it sure looks good! thanks Marian, for the reminder about how good Shivers was (and is).

You're very welcome, Carrie. smile I had pretty much forgotten about the game myself until I came across it the other night and loaded it up, and then the memories of how much fun I had with it came flooding back.

The manual is great, isn't? They rarely make manuals like that anymore.

You shouldn't have too much trouble tracking down Shivers 2, if you ever decide to give it a go.

I loved the sounds of the game, especially in the maze. Very creepy! I'll here music in things now and it'll take me back to Shivers.
