Varrentombe Castle - online adventure, how is it? - 01/08/03 08:23 AM

Hi, fellow gameboomers

I came accross this site
http://www.varrentombe.com/varrentombe3.html
which features an online adventure.

Unfortunately, my connection is too slow at the moment to be able to do anything (or their server is slow)...

Has anyone played it? If so,is it worth the bother for its slowness? I've been there for more than 5 minutes, now, and still haven't got the first picture loaded...

Best wishes for 2003...

Edit: still waiting for the picture to load - I am gonna give up. Probably I'll try later...

...me either...or...me too <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> I was able to download the Adobe but it appears to just be a program for us to write games with....lots of graphic tools, etc. And when I went back to click on game I only got a very fuzzy picture of maybe the interior of a gothic style building???? I think it also is a multi-player game which isn't my cup of tea...but looks good huh?

Could not get anything to run either. either it really wasn't meant for us to find it this soon, or maybe it has been abandoned....and since no feedback , kinda makes me think they have changed their minds about doing it.

I tried to play this last weekend. I clicked on start game and a new window opened up. It displayed some kind of background pattern and then started loading the adobe plugin that is needed. That took forever for the site to download it. Then, right about when the plugin finished installing the program crashed and closed all of my browser windows. Maybe I'll try again sometime.
