I'm in the mood for an outer space adventure...I've played Cracking the Conspiracy and The Arrival in the past and loved them; and am looking for something similar to play now. I have Martian Gothic, The Ward, and Dark side of the moon. Are any of those similar to the above games?? What do you recommend? I remember having so much fun wandering around the space station in the guise of an alien and staring out the windows into infinite space when playing the Arrival.... are there any other games like that?? Thanks so much for any ideas!!

Mysterious Journey II: Chameleon starts out on a space station that you get to explore.

I hope you enjoy it. The station is eerie, and when you get on the planet surface the place is very colorful.

There's Lightbringer (also called Cydonia) if you haven't played that. If you can get a hold of the DVD version it's a plus (to avoid the disc swapping). I really enjoyed it.
Haven't played it, but I heard a lot of good things about Dark Side of the Moon, again - if you have the DVD version to avoid the tedious disc swapping.

Starship Titanic and Rama take place in spaceships.
Both good games.

I liked Mysterious Journey 1 & 2 a lot. Both had what I want in an adventure, interesting people and places I can investigate. I LOVE Dark Side Of The Moon for the same reasons. Still replaying that one. Played some of the others. I noticed you like (and played) some of the same kinds of games I do/did. Is that... science fiction?
Please say yes.
I've never played Cracking The Conspiracy. Tell me what it's about.
