Death Gate by Legend Entertainment now on GOG - 01/03/18 10:44 AM

It was released today on GOG and you can find it here.

I am thrilled to see GOG get one of the Legend Entertainment games - hopefully this will be the first of many.

GameBoomers reviewed the game here.

And here is another review from Mr. Bill's Adventureland.

Thanks Marian. Sounds good.

Another one I never heard of but I did start gaming kind of late.

I thought this game and Mission Critical were the best games from Legend.

Did you not like Blackstone Chronicles, Jenny100 ??

[I played all their "graphic" adventures and I agree Death Gate and Mission Critical were really good thumbsup]

Wow, a game from 1994, and it looks and sounds terrific! I read Syd's old review. I played so many games like this back in the day. happydance

My usual question: Does it have timed or action sequences in it that might create stress? I can no longer play stuff like that, as much as I wish I could. I have to stick to "thinking" games, instead.

Haven't played it in many years, but there was certainly nothing like the QTE mess in many of today's games. Check the walkthrough at
http://the-spoiler.com/ADVENTURE/Legend/deathgate.1.html
and do a search for the word: "quickly" (without the quotes)

You'll find the word "quickly" in a couple of places. But I doubt there was anything really dexterity dependent and it may have only meant "don't fool around looking at everything before leaving."

I did not like it. The beginning parts of the game were OK,
but toward the end it went too far over the top and disgusting.

Oh, sorry you didn't like it, Jenny100. But I realise everybody doesn't like that sort of thing.
