Zero Zone of Name the Game

Zero Zone of Name the Game - 05/07/12 07:29 AM

We've reached 20 pages on the previous Name the Game thread, and so I'm starting another one. If anyone would like to view the previous Name the Game thread, you'll find Page 1 of the thread here.


For those who are joining us for the first time for Name the Game, this is the procedure:


One person (hereinafter known as "It") posts a clue to an adventure game. The clue can be simple or difficult or straightforward or creative. Clues can be information about characters or events or puzzles or more (though we do try to stay away from outright puzzle spoilers).

Everyone who wishes to participate can post the name of the game that best matches the clue. If no one has guessed after an attempt or two (or if a day passes with no guesses), "It" gives another clue. The person who guesses correctly then becomes "It" and posts a clue for a different game, and so on. If you've posted a guess, or if you are "It," check back every day to see if you've guessed right or if you need to identify the correct guesser, so the game continues smoothly!

(When thinking up clues, a good place to look for possible ideas is the GameBoomers collection of adventure walkthroughs -- plenty of inspiration there.)


I am currently IT.

Clue #1: Chewed up bubble gum.

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/08/12 07:34 AM

"Clue #3 -- The mother of all giant ants."


Are you sure you haven't been watching "Them"?

I paid no attention, and I'm the ribcage the ant tossed on the dust heap. If only I'd known then what I know now!

(Wasn't that guy Santa Claus in Miracle on 34th Street? I knew Santa was suspicious!)

Clue #4: Giving birth every few seconds? How on earth does she do it?



Posted by: traveler

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/09/12 08:54 PM

You're an extremely talkative ribcage. grin

James Whitmore. Santa? The only one I remember is Edmund Gwenn...I think.

Where do you find these weird games?? Why do I have a feeling the developer was Og and the game was engraved on stone around 400 BC?

Gil.
Posted by: Becky

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/09/12 09:18 PM

If a skull can talk non-stop, I don't see why a ribcage can't.

This is a recent game, full of sophistication and nuance. I think the developers are named Jay and Steve, though I could easily be mistaken.

laugh

BTW -- Santa Claus IS in Them! He's Dr. Harold Medford. Or something like that. He's decided that Macy's is a bore, and he's gone on to bigger and better things.

"This is a recent game, full of sophistication and nuance. I think the developers are named Jay and Steve, though I could easily be mistaken."

I hope everyone appreciates my digging another clue out of you. grin I wonder if there's more than a ribcage on that dust heap. A talkative toe, maybe.

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/09/12 11:32 PM

think hmmmm ,i'm wondering if captain morgane would be the answer ........
Posted by: Becky

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/10/12 05:29 AM

Niteowl07 -- good idea -- the game I'm thinking of is almost as recent as Captain Morgane.

Clue #4 (Clue #5 if you count the nonsense Traveler dragged out of me. Hmmm. The sophistication and nuance comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek.)

Anyway, Clue Whatever:

The purple bear is his lieut (of sorts) and plays the lute. The bear's toe taps, but does not speak.

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/10/12 08:25 AM

I have a vague memory of a chewed up bubble gum in Harvest of souls. The rest of the clues awaken however no familiar scenes from the game wink
Posted by: Becky

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/10/12 10:15 PM

No, sorry. I guess not many of you have played this new game?

Another clue: What a charming village! Should I visit the hunky butcher? Or should I visit the not-so-hunky pest exterminator?

If it IS Dreamfall, that could explain my blank mind !!
I really disliked the game and so banished it from my consciousness as quickly as I uninstalled it from my machine lol lol
Posted by: flotsam

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/24/12 04:58 PM

Well that would explain it Mad - it is indeed Dreamfall.
I loved it, so I guess it stayed with me.
Posted by: Becky

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/24/12 07:44 PM

I loved it too. Well, after the first hour or two of figuing out how to move around. lol

Flotsam and Becky, I loved Dreamfall, too. Fantastic game. thumbsup

Okay, clue 1: This game, like many other games, makes use of a plinth. This plinth may become brighter than most when mixed with a certain object.
Posted by: flotsam

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/28/12 04:56 AM

I have no idea but there was a plinth in BS: Angel of Death??

Re: Creature Crunch of Name the Game - 05/28/12 10:51 AM

No, but good guess, flotsam. There are so many games with plinths, I think it's a trend. grin

Posted by: zookeeper

Re: Maniac Mansion of Name the Game - 06/11/12 07:03 PM

Oh no! I meant to put cell in quotes..."cell" phone. Well I messed up that clue! I also meant to pluralize friends in a previous clue. Sheesh! I had bunion surgery on Friday so let's blame it on the pain meds lol

My reasoning behind my clues which I'm sure you've already worked out for yourselves:

Clue number 1: The "Flapper" makes a brief appearance at the beginning of the game.

Clue number 2: Fashion is important in that you can't get inside the museum's party without dressing appropriately.

Clue number 3: Nose for News -- Laura Bow is a reporter.

Clue number 4: Getting ahead -- Ambitious reporter.
Getting a head -- Finding Ziggy's head.

Good job, over to you. grin
Posted by: chrissie

Re: Maniac Mansion of Name the Game - 06/21/12 03:55 PM

I've never played TSB but it was the clue about the coin for the bus that gave it away as I've been following the playthrough on AGers! lol

Ah, sorry everyone! Work has been so hectic this week, and I'm afraid I forgot it was my turn. oops This coming week should be a lot lighter, so hopefully this won't happen again.

Anyway, clue 2: All of my senses have to be engaged for this to work.

Re: Slip Space of Name the Game - 08/22/12 01:07 AM

Diskworld Noir?
Posted by: Mad

Re: Slip Space of Name the Game - 08/22/12 01:12 AM

No, I'm afraid smile

This game is younger than Zak McKraken but older than Discworld Noir and The Whispered World.

CLUE TWO :

"There are five areas to visit and they include a castle, a desert and a wizard's tower. "

Re: Slip Space of Name the Game - 08/22/12 06:04 AM

King's Quest 5?

Re: Slip Space of Name the Game - 08/23/12 03:31 AM

It's not a King's Quest game, venus. This game was released a couple of years later than KQ5 smile

CLUE THREE :

"Whilst in the desert you will need to visit the Spirit Plane."

"I Have No Mouth But I Must Scream" ?? whistle
Posted by: traveler

Re: Zero Zone of Name the Game - 08/24/12 02:10 PM

sureshot,

You're in the right time period for the first part of this game. (Hint) But it's not a horror game! (Strangely enough)

Since I'm ever so nice whistle, here's another clue.

1. ∞

2. a diabolical plan

3. The knight keeps turning off the light! "I so badly want to swear."

4. The king must die. He may. He's stuck in superglue.

Valhalla and the lord of Infinity?
Posted by: traveler

Re: Zero Zone of Name the Game - 08/25/12 01:28 PM

Bwahahahaha! Yes! Valhalla Classics: Before the War - Episodes 5 - 8.

I can't help it, I love the evil Lord of Infinity. He's so funny, I root for him whatever he does. grin

Jarkeld, do you know if this is (or isn't) the first episodic game? I'm pretty sure it's the first episodic game with speech.

If anyone hasn't played these, why are you waiting? Go get the free game with Infinity's nemesis, The Little Prince, The Crypt. There really is nothing like the Valhalla Classics. ( Mr. Bill likes them, too. wink)

Take it away, Jarkeld!


Gil.

Re: Zero Zone of Name the Game - 08/25/12 07:07 PM

Re: Zero Zone of Name the Game - 08/26/12 09:02 PM


"Clue #1: This game...is...a real...classic."

Maybe the spacing in this means something. Slo...ow? Slee...py? Another episodic game?

Just thinking. Hard work.


Gil.
Posted by: Jarkeld

Re: Zero Zone of Name the Game - 08/28/12 04:33 AM

It's not Timelapse.

Clue #3: 7 missions to perform. Hopefully everyone comes back alive.
