This is an 'Old Skool' adventure produced by independant developers Dirk Schippers(aka Scippie)& team. As they are based in Belgium the price of the game (reasonable for most European coutries!)is very high for other parts of the world. So, is it worth those extra dollars?
but I ended up having to go back to earlier saves! A more positive aspect of the game is that you move almost seamlessly from one screen to the next - there are few places which require 'loading time'.
OVERALL: This is a well thought out and beautifully crafted game (apart from a few very minor glitches) - you do need to play this to it's full potential to really appreciate this. It includes many subtleties if you care to observe but even on the surface of it it succeeds brilliantly at combining (what appears to be) a heart-wrenching story with (at the very least) elements of dark humour, puerility and just sheer adolescent 'naughtiness'! (SLIGHT SPOILER: with that in mind you could possibly guess a seemingly 'random number'!)
I am not familiar with 'Old Skool' adventures so I don't know how this compares. What I do know is that this was a lot of fun and very addictive - well worth buying! - and I can't wait to see what 'Scippie' comes up with next!
GENERAL INFO I played this on WinXP SP2 Home Editon. CPU: 3GHZ. RAM:1024MB. Hard Drive:160GB. Graphics: 128MB ATI Radeon X3000SE. CD Rom: 16x. I didn't experience any problems apart from one or two occasions when loading or exiting the game, I am confident that this was to do with my system and not the game.
