It was great to meet you Chrissie on Saturday for the first time! Look forward to meeting you again!

I'm 58 and no one I know plays PC adventures games. Most don't even like computers. Put me in front of a computer and I'm happy, especially with an adventure game going. Most people are into the Wii and Xbox games. And why is it that online or in stores, they lump action/adventure into one group? That might be why a lot of people balk when you say Adventure Game. Don't you get tired of explaining the difference. (I love this thread too!)

Birddog, you have a lot of company in being aggravated that the games are all lumped into Action/Adventure. I know part of the problem is that what one person defines as "action" is not necessarily what the person next to them would call "action."

Glad you found us! wave

If anyone asks, I say I like "puzzle games" or "games where you solve puzzles." No one would know what I was talking about if I said "adventure games," and the games I like are closer to puzzle games than they are to action or action/adventure games.

Hi Dragonuk44. I too find them relaxing and love getting lost in the stories. Any time my two sons talk about computers is to get me to come over and take care of a problem they have!

The last time I was in a store looking for a new gaming keyboard the 20 something male clerk made the comment that women are awfull at computer games because they lack the ability to process the information logically like males ROFLOL.

My husband just shook his head and commented that he hoped such an attitude wasn't hereditary. I told him not to worry, that with that attitude it was unlikely te young man would ever have the opportunity to reproduce himself smile

Needless to say, I purchased my rather expensive backlit keyboard elsewhere wink Now to find some new adventure games to play smile

That was a dumb sales clerk. I wouldn't say something that would drive my customers away.

Texana, they have backlit keyboards? That sounds cool. I may have to find one.

Sounds like that particular clerk didn't have the ability to process information logically. What a dope to treat a customer that way.

The keys light up underneath and the letters do also. I have This one. It's a pretty blue in 3 different intensities.

Hi sierramindy, have you tried double-clicking on the black kitty - on my PC the folder for Feeding Time was in my documents also. If I click on the folder there are a lot of files in there including the icon of the kitty with 'feed' next to it. Clicking on that for me started the game, the bad news is there doesn't seem to be any way of saving! It is also entirely text (no visuals) - I think that is how it supposed to be? smile

Thank you Peter, it was nice to meet you too & hope to make it to Hamilton Halls again in August. smile

The game is included in a list as not needing a CAT program to be able to play. I have played through a bit but as mentioned to sierramindy there seems no way of saving!
