Quote:
Who is Al Emmo?
Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchman's Mine harkens back to the "golden age" of adventure gaming with hand-drawn VGA graphics, an icon-driven interface, a comedic storyline, and classic point-and-click puzzle solving. Al -- a feeble, middle-aged man unlucky in love -- gets wrapped up in a thousand-year-old Aztec curse while trying to impress a sultry lounge singer. Does this balding, parentally dependent fashion disaster have what it takes to be a treasure-hunting cowboy?

What's new and improved?
With over 120 hand-painted backgrounds, more than 15k frames of fluid character animation, and unique messages for practically everything you click on, Al Emmo is a lovingly crafted game by a team passionate about old-school adventures. New features in Al Emmo Enhanced include:
• A brand new voice actor for the titular character, Al Emmo
• Classic 2D-animated cutscenes
• 20 achievements
• Sierra-style scoring system with 500 points to win
• Higher-res graphic options for more detailed characters
• UI and graphical tweaks to enhance gameplay

Think I'll give it a try. The first one had a voice that really irritated me. Perhaps with the new voice actor it will be less grating (to me).

Other than the voice I really enjoyed the game and, from watching the trailer, it appears it is made somewhat in the old Sierra on Line style of adventure games.

I am downloading the demo as I type this.

EDIT: Tried the demo and, in my opinion, this Al Emmo voice is better. So, I've purchased the game and am waiting for the code to unlock it.
