Oh, please someone, remember this game for Laurette.
It sounds just the sort of game I would love to play. I so enjoyed Atlantis 2 but Laurette seems pretty sure this wasn't the game.

Thanks everyone. Jenny100: What I'm remembering is I thought it was strictly 1st person; the puzzles were, like oriental music bells where you had to play them in the right order. You had to figure out how to lower a bridge to proceed to the other side. It did involve a monastery (as I mentioned). And, I believe I played it in 1999 or 2000, but it may have been made earlier. The graphics and sound were way ahead of their time. I'll look on the website you mentioned. Thank you.

After visiting the website, I had thought Journeyman Project: Legacy of Time was it. However, after looking at the pictures I don't remember it as being science fictiony (is that a word). I then thought it was "Beyond Time," but am still looking for the snow scene. I believe it did involve different locations, but am not sure. I'm almost sorry I brought this up!

So far everything you have described is from the HIMALAYAN MOUNTAIN portion of Legacy of Time as others have suggested. From the snow, first person, time of release, sound bells, dropping a bridge, monastery.. everything. I still have the GOG version on my computer if you would like for me to get a certain screenshot

Greyfuss: I believe you got it! I was looking for the snow scenes (for some reason I remember that a lot, even though I don't like snow!)

Thank you and everybody who tried to help.

The GOG version is playable on Windows 7 and is only $5.99 at the moment.

It doesn't seem to be very "science fictiony" while you're playing because for most of the game you're in historical environments.

This made for interesting reading for me even though I don't know any of these games. I just bought The Journeyman Project 2 and 3 as a package deal from GOG. Looking forward to exploring a new world.

I was also going to suggest Schizm. There is a whole section in a temple in the mountains, where you have to play bells (prayer wheels) in a certain order to match the chant of the monks. There is also an incredibly difficult bridge puzzle where you have to lower it by sections to get to the other side. I guess there are a lot of older games that fit the description.

SuMac, thank you for mentioning Schizm; there was another game I was trying to remember involving bells and a bridge, and Schizm was the one. Now I can stop trying to remember what it was. grin

Meryl and Bob, I hope you enjoy the game. wave

Hey, didn't I suggest JP3 on GOG.com about half-way down the first page of replies? Oh well.
