I remember when I first started playing computer games, there was this wonderful game, where part of, or all of it, was based in Tibet. The graphics, sound, everything were fantastic. I'm estimating around 1999 or 2000. Does anyone remember this game? If it were playable on Windows7, I'd love it.

Thanks for any help.

No. The game showed a lot of snow, gongs, I believe, even a spring scene with flowers and birds. I really wish I could remember the theme. It was a wonderful game. Thanks, though.

Sounds like Journeyman Project 3 to me. I'm pretty sure it's available on gog.com, and will work on Windows 7 too.

GreyFuss: I believe it was first person. Gremlin: At first, I thought you had it, but looked at screen shots and *sigh* no. I believe it involved a monastery, you had to solve a gong puzzle, fight blizzards. Wish I could remember more about it.

Lost Horizon? It was set in World War 2 and involved German soldiers and a Tibetan monastery.

Atlantis 2 could fit your description and the year.

Once again, I thought Bristol had it, but "sob" no. Chief, also not Atlantis 2. I wish I could give a prize to someone who gets this. (maybe I can!).

I have vague memories of a young monk being taught by a very old man in a ship on land. He had to touch certain spots on a mandala? and be transported to different places or times? Any bells anyone? I remember it started with the young monk making his way through a terrific snowstorm to the monastery.

Sounds a little like Atlantis II, which had a Tibet area at the beginning of the game (and possibly at the end).

Schizm: Mysterious Journey had a monastery and ***prayer wheels***, but it wasn't Tibet.

Reah had a gong puzzle, but not much snow

Sentinel had a lot of snow in the Sanselard area, but it wasn't Tibet.

Aura had a gong puzzle -- and snowy areas, again not Tibet

Yes that sounds a lot like Atlantis II (Beyond Atlantis).

Just remembered a scene, I think, where a man is stranded in the snow, and you have you help save him? I can see these things in my head, but just can't get it. (good grief!)

It sure sounds like Beyond Atlantis (Atlantis II). It opens with the young monk trudging through the snow to a ship where the old monk is waiting. There is a mandala on the wall which takes the young monk to different worlds : China, Ireland, and the Mayan world. The game ends in Shambala, which is very spring-like and pretty. This was one of my favorite games.

Was that when you played it or when the game was published? If it's when the game was published, you might check the Pagoda database by year to see what was published in 1999 or 2000. If it was when you played the game, you might check earlier years too.

Can you remember anything else about the game? Were there live actors in the game or were the characters computer-rendered? If it was 1st person, was there panning? Was it a fantasy type game or a more "realistic" game? Was it edutainment? (maybe something like Vikings or Physicus) Was it heavy on puzzles? Were there a lot of conversations and character interaction in it or was it mostly a solitary game?

A couple of other games I liked from around 1999 are Timelapse and Morpheus, but I don't remember if I rescued anyone stuck in the snow in those.
