Thanks jenny! I'll keep that in mind. Bigmamma, what is Thief Dark Project? Maybe I'll check that one out.

Hi Tristy-
Thief Dark Project is the first of the 3 Thief games, from 1999(I think) It is a first person "sneaker"-You play as Garrett, a Taffer(master thief) in an imaginary world that resembles the Middle Ages. You don't need to kill anyone but get around them by knocking them or sneaking around in the shadows or dark places-that's the fun part.Free movement, controlled by WSAD and mouse.This was the first game I played that wasn't point and click, so now I play both kinds, depending on my mood at the time. I also play hidden object games just for a change.
People do not remember how much you know,only how you make them feel
finished Gray Matter, playing Alice Madness returns and Deponia

I don't see anyone mentioning that if you sign up for an account at you get a few free games thrown at you - including Revolution's Lure of the Temptress and Beneath a Steel Sky, as well as Dragonsphere by MPS labs and TeenAgent. I well remember Lure from my 16-bit days (never did complete it though), TeenAgent was one of the first indie adventure games I ever played, and Dragonsphere is cool... though I gave up on it in the end because it kept crashing (Win7).

Anyway, just thought it was worth mentioning to other adventure game buffs! The games are housed within their own DOSbox runtimes so there's no messing out to get them working - though as mentioned, I had trouble with Dragonsphere. :-(

Dragonsphere was tricky to get working in DOS too. I think you had to use EMS instead of NOEMS in the EMM386 line in your config.sys.

My computer's getting older now (about a 5+ yr old DELL XPS)...still fully useful but the newer games I find run a bit more wonky. So...I found Since I "found" them, I haven't stopped ordering from them...I've got so many "older" games from them now....many of the classics and several I wish I'd never gotten rid of...that my PC is almost full!
Their download mgr works just fine. Be aware that although some older titles only take up 50 MB,for instance....some still may take up a couple of GIG or more space on your HD.
ANyway,I've yet to have a single non-solvable problem with any of the games I've downloaded from them. Their games run on XP,Win7,etc.
I give them 2 thumbs up...more if I had more thumbs!

I wish they'd get the original Black Mirror.
They actually have a "Wanted Games" list where you can vote on the games you want them to get.
