This is a great game for people who doesnt's like to complicate puzzles like me but with a good story. I like the analasys of the "rich and famous" lol. The design in my opinion are horrible even the "antiques" and Malachi could be a little fatter to be beautiful. I do not not know who design hthe bacground but it is horrible and the music I find obsessive and out context with the story. Still it is a good game as far a intrigue. A game whroth to play!

Opinions seemed rather divided on this game, but I remember that quite a few GameBoomers liked it. I'm glad you are enjoying it. wave

Sorry for being late to the party on this one, just got around to playing this game to it's end and I am glad I finished it, truly a fantastic game, yet another game well done by Jane Jenson. I will not try to review this game since "gremlin" did such a fantastic job doing so, in fact, it was gremlin's review that encouraged me to buy the game, thanks gremlin. This game is a Definite replay down the road.

Oh, I also Hate Mazes, but it wasn't that hard to move around, as long as you followed the Constellations found on the walls, one can find a way out fairly easy, and for me to say that, it is easy.

Starcom, I also really enjoyed Moebius. I contributed to the Kickstarter when it came out and got a very nice, big box version that I'm very happy to own. thumbsup My only complaint is that we'll probably never get a sequel, and it felt like an introductory chapter to a series.

I agree with you regarding the maze, and I generally hate mazes also. This one, however, was very easy, and I had no problems with it.

Glad gremlin's review inspired you to give the game a try. thumbsup

Thanks Sandy,
Good to be back, at least in the "Adventure game section", I have been playing mostly Casual games lately since it is hard to find Good Adv. games, so when I do find one, then I am more than happy to buy it and play it.

Speaking of Adv. games, have you played Stasis? This is a game that I bought but most likely will not finish it, the writing is too small for my eyes and too dark and confined for my liking.

I have NOT played Stasis yet, and about your comment about Adventure Games: Many of the newer games are turning out to be ACTION games, which I can no longer handle anymore.

Same here, on the inclusion of arcade or fighting sequences in Adventure games. I finally stopped playing them because of this. I could not finish any of them!

I don't know which games you have tried to play but there are lots of good new adventure games without fighting or arcade.
You need a good PC with enough RAM and a very good videocard because the games are very detailed with beautifull surroundings.
The games are bigger so you need enough harddiskspace.

In the last 2 years: Xing-The land beyond, The eyes of Ara, The House of Da Vinci, Quern-Undying Thoughts, The Painscreek Killings, Lake Ridden, Returner 77, Aporia, Roon Sehv, and more. These ones I have played but I didn't buy all new games because I can't afford to buy them all.

There are also lots of new adventure games with horror elements, some I will play but some others I don't, horror is not really my kind of game.

So there are enough new adventure games but you need a good PC.

Have fun Lion_1251

I've been playing computer games since the days of Pong and Asteroids ha ha Tells you how old I am! happydance I played every one of the King's Quests, Zorks, Gabriel Knights, Mysts - you name it, I probably played it. I used to always have at least one game loaded and playing. I long ago lost track of the total games I've played. But the Adventure genre seems to have changed for the most part, and left me behind.

One of the last Adventure games that I played, before Nathan Carter, was one of the Lost Crown games. Loved it! Have been waiting for the sequel for a LONG time. Thimbleweed Park was delightful. The Next Big Thing was like an old-fashioned quirky Adventure game. I played The Secrets of Da Vinci, and thoroughly enjoyed it (Not sure if that is the same as House of Da Vinci?) So yes, I know that there still are some traditional-style Adventure games out there.

The first problem with contemporary Adventure computer games is that many people are not put off by horrific scenes of abuse or bloodletting nor by the proliferation of "action" scenes, so reviewers don't often discuss the degree of action/fighting sequences in a game. Which leads to the second problem with these games: Gore and horror are not "entertainment" to me and stressful action sequences cause me chest pain. I know I am not alone in being disappointed with the sequel to Dreamfall that forced you to learn fighting skills right from the get-go. I spent $40 for that game and could not get past the Intro.

Even when I took to YouTube to screen as many videos of prospective games as possible, to see if they would push my limitations, it was AFTER the video clip that many games introduced gore or compulsory fighting. So, I'd buy them, and find out later. At this point, I have had to bail out of too many games after purchase to make me want to keep trying. These are expensive mistakes. For now, I have come to accept that the Adventure game market is geared toward the younger set, with fast reflexes and desire to be frightened.

Reenie, the sequel to Dreamfall is Dreamfall Chapters, and it doesn't have any action sequences. Are you sure you don't just mean Dreamfall itself? That one does have fighting, unfortunately, but most of it can be avoided.

Have you tried Pillars of the Earth by Daedalic? That game, while not very difficult, has a fantastic story and has "classic" point and click controls. There are some sequences where the game asks you to click the mouse somewhat quickly, but I don't think these are any harder than old Sierra games. Plus, I don't think it's necessary to "win" them in order for the game to progress anyway, and they're not the focus of the game. The game mainly focuses on the characters, story, light puzzles and choices. It's one of the more engaging adventure games I've played recently.

Also, the upcoming Unavowed may be something you'd be interested in. It's a classic adventure game with puzzles. It also appears to be adding RPG content in the "right" way, a way in which adventure gamers would actually enjoy. Instead of adding combat and timed elements, they are allowing gamers to choose their protagonist's gender and back story, plus choose which party members will go on particular missions, which will make each playthrough unique. It looks fantastic based on everything I've seen.

I also belong to the older generation, I don't like fighting games, don't play.
Horror games are not my thing, a little bit creepy, a little bit suspence are oke but that's all.

The games I mentioned are non fighting, non horror, no arcade. you don't need fast reactions.
The Secrets of Da Vinci is not the same as The House of Da Vinci.
The House of Da Vinci is a puzzle game like the games The Room 1 + 2

Maybe you read it but in august or september all the 7 Myst games will be available on GOG,masterpiece and you can play it on windows 10
