I just bought a really nice game from GOG. Harvester is the name of it. Point and click. I paid $5.99. It's a old game but doesn't look old. The graphics are really good.

It's great the way that GOG is making these older games compatible with newer computers. wave

I never heard of the game. It came out in 1996. That is old.

Woa, I recall this game from way back when.

It is VERY creepy and has some gore and violence in it.

Worth a play since it's cheap.

Harvester is definitely not for the squeamish.

I believe that Harvester was a DOS game. wave

I have an original copy - it was DOS and the box was marked as such.

Looks like it was released on both DOS and WIN95.

The GOG site says will run on XP, Win 7 and Win 8.

One guy posted that he ran the game with DOSBOX on Win 7 with no problems at all.

This one looks interesting, but I'll wait until it goes on sale for $1.79.

I don't think $5.99 is an outrageous asking price. But I'm sure it will go on sale for even less eventually.

It is the "Plan 9 from Outer Space" of adventure games.

Hi fellow Boomers,
I ALSO bought "Harvester" from GOG, and it's running very well on my WIN XP computer. ENJOY!
