We've reached 20 pages on the previous Name the Game thread, and so I'm starting another one. If anyone would like to view the previous Name the Game thread, you'll find Page 1 of the thread here.


For those who are joining us for the first time for Name the Game, this is the procedure:


One person (hereinafter known as "It") posts a clue to an adventure game. The clue can be simple or difficult or straightforward or creative. Clues can be information about characters or events or puzzles or more (though we do try to stay away from outright puzzle spoilers).

Everyone who wishes to participate can post the name of the game that best matches the clue. If no one has guessed after an attempt or two (or if a day passes with no guesses), "It" gives another clue. The person who guesses correctly then becomes "It" and posts a clue for a different game, and so on. If you've posted a guess, or if you are "It," check back every day to see if you've guessed right or if you need to identify the correct guesser, so the game continues smoothly!

(When thinking up clues, a good place to look for possible ideas is the GameBoomers collection of adventure walkthroughs -- plenty of inspiration there.)


I am currently IT.

Clue #1 Refers to One Word in the Title of the Game I'm Thinking Of:

Better than cheap


****************************************

(For those interested, the current thread titles are listed below.)

HINT: ONE OF THESE IS NOT PART OF AN ADVENTURE GAME TITLE

Lost Souls of Name the Game
Lost Tales of Name the Game
Lost Files of Name the Game
Lost Kingdom of Name the Game
Lost Cavern of Name the Game
Lost Garden of Name the Game
Lost Keys of Name the Game
Lost Horizon of Name the Game
Lost Chronicles of Name the Game
Lost Sword of Name the Game

Really, this is a guess. I haven't played it so I didn't know there were episodes.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People?

But if that's right, I don't get where "better than cheap" comes in. Would you mind elucidating? razz

"Better than cheap" is a word in the title of the particular episode.

Clue #4: The Episode's title also includes a word that is in the title of this thread.

Hint #2:
After hours of careful sketching,
My solution seemed to be matching.
Unfortunately all I got in the end,
was 1/9 of what was required by my friend.

Thanks!. Thought it was #2 as I recently played a bit via ScummVM.

Clue #1: A nice elevator ride. Always a pleasure to have an elevator ride where nothing happens.....

Myst?

Mad -- I'm reading Terry Pratchett's "Snuff" right now. I'm a Vimes fan. Did he make it into the early Discworld games?

Hi Becky smile

I don't remember Vimes appearing as a character in the games - but it's quite a while now since I re-played any Discworlds so I can't be sure.

Maybe someone with more brain cells still in play will drop by and tell us !! lol

I'm stepping in with a clue! grin

I'm providing individual clues, each clue is a hint indicating one word in the title of the game. The game was released between 1995 and 2000. You can have a look at the adventure games released during that period at the Pagoda Game Database.

Clue #1 for one word in the title:

Associated with another dollar.

My sincere apologies for being gone so long! We've had some interesting stuff going on anyway and then I got very sick and pretty much forgot about the 'net while I was stuck in bed.

No it isn't Zak, but it is an older game

Clue #2
Some rooms have goodies, others are just old
Most have paintings, decorated with gold
Which jars have keys?
Which walls have doors?
Which path gives the answer to what all this was for?

Okay, I'm getting gold and mine out of this. But for clue 2, I'm not sure if we're talking about the resurgence or the city. Rome? Venice? Renaissance? Sigh. I should go look under the Pagoda.

At least, I can cross Al Emmo off the list. grin

Sorry Becky. The 3-Stooges is a game within a game. smile

In the big box version of this game is a professional magazine called "The Hot Spot". It includes a quiz for "How likely are you to get fired?"

I’m not good at this but here goes…

OK, in this game if the player (especially one who tends to try everything with everything LOL) tries to give a can of beer to a monkey the game chastises the player on the subject of animal cruelty.

If someone guesses and or I don't reply it's because I've lost power due to the nor'easter.

Game is the second in a series of three (so far) There are two playable characters. That should narrow it down a bit.

I guess I will:

Clue #1: This game differentiates significantly from its two predessers in terms of presentation and gameplay/pacing style, but also has a distinct polish and atmosphere.
Clue #2: Some strange things on the menu today.

Nope!

Clue #3: The game is scary and horrific in some spots, compared to the other games in the series, which are merely suspensful and creepy.

This game had a puzzle you had to win twice to advance, and no saving was allowed in between the two attempts.
